*NSYNC singer Joey Fatone has remained coy about the rumours the band will reunite at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Fatone was questioned about the possible reunion by TMZ and he replied, "I'm actually going to be going to Staten Island. My cousin is turning 40 – there's a surprise 40th [party] on Saturday."

Then he continued, reportedly through a cheeky grin, "Why the hell would I attend? Justin is obviously getting the Vanguard Award. And we heard about that, and that's why the rumours started flying about doing stuff."

When asked directly if he will be performing at the VMAs he said no. "I haven't gotten a phone call or anything."

The VMAs take place in the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn on Sunday 25th August.
