Former 'N Sync star Lance Bass shocked fellow guests during his weekend getaway in Atlantic City - by speaking fluent Russian. The openly gay pop singer befriended a group of Russian girls while partying at club Mur Mur, and impressed them by speaking flawlessly in their native tongue. A source tells, "He must be fluent from his days back when he was trying to go to space." Bass famously announced plans to be the youngest person to go into space back in 2002. He paid millions of dollars to train with the Russian Space Agency in order to fly into orbit, but eventually his dream fell through.
