Joey Fatone says the Backstreet Boys are going back on tour because “they just need the money.”

The former *NSYNC boy bander appeared on HuffPost Live on Thursday, where he discussed his own group’s one-time reunion to honor Justin Timberlake at last year’s MTV VMAs, and said that at this moment, there is “absolutely 100 percent no” chance they’ll do it again.

But he knows why acts including New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys are touring.

“I feel like they just need the money,” explains Fatone. “No offense, guys. But I’m saying, if you think about it, it’s like, ‘Why are you coming back out again?'”

He goes on to say that everyone in *NSYNC “has their own lives” and “doing their own thing,” making it tough to foresee any reunion tour for them.
