Pedro Andrade is a male model. He's out of the closet and has been rumored to date Lance Bass.

Here's the bad news: Pedro Andrade and Lance Bass have called it quits.

Here's the good news: The break-up has allowed us to use that witty *NSYNC pun in the headline above.

So it's basically a wash of celebrity gossip.

The couple may have dated for just two months, but our offices were flooded with hate mail regarding Andrade. You'd think he was Simon Monjack or Tameka Foster, as fans wrote in to warn Bass about Pedro's supposed past as a male escort.

But that may have been what drove the singer to the model in the first place. It's hard to say.

Either way, we wish each half of this former couple nothing but the best.

In other sort of gay dating news: How insane is Anne Heche?!?

Thanks to People for these notes from the world of celebrity romance ...

  • Sacha Baron Cohen and his pregnant, longtime girlfriend Isla Fisher were spotted eating dinner with two male companions at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. The couple talked and laughed for hours with their meal. At one point, Fisher got up and sat on Sacha Baron Cohen's lap.
  • The sexy The Girl Next Door, 24 and Captivity actress Elisha Cuthbert and her hockey player boyfriend, Sean Avery, partied it up at Hyde and looked "really sweet together," holding hands, according to an observer. The pair shared a drink as they chatted up friends and each other.

  • On hand to help friend Justin Timberlake, who was hosting the opening of his N.Y. City restaurant Southern Hospitality, Lance Bass made time for another important guy in his life... new boyfriend Pedro Andrade. Once inside the eatery, Lance Bass and his new beau took a seat near Timberlake, chowing down on biscuits and fried onion rings while chatting up one another.
  • Actress Brittany Murphy and her new husband, thief / con-artist screenwriter Simon Monjack, kept close company during a screening of the film Love and Other Disasters - which stars Brittany Murphy - as part of Los Angeles' Outfest.
  • The Hills stars, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, enjoyed a sunny lunch at Mogan's Café in the Pacific Palisades after returning from Miami Fashion Week. "They were relaxing, enjoying some time together," a source said, adding, "Heidi has been busy recording some songs with David Foster."

Forgive us, but: Lance Bass was totally in sync with his new boyfriend the instant he saw him.

And where did this viewing take place? 35,000 miles up in the air.

"He was asleep in the back of the plane on the way over," the former 'N Sync star said Pedro Andrade, who was also en route to Vienna for the May 28 Life Ball.

"I was like, 'He's really cute,'" Bass told People at Monday's New York premiere of the movie Hairspray. (The singer will appear in the Broadway version of the long-running musical starting on Aug. 14.)

At the time Andrade was working at the Austrian event as a model for Heatherette. And now he joins Tyler Atkins as a new boyfriend making celebrity news.

"It's so fresh and new," Bass said about the relationship. "The good thing is learning everything about him. He's really great... amazing."

Bass said that it took some time to get over his break-up with Reichen Lehmkuhl last December â€" but he's enjoying the dating life. "It's the first time I've ever been able to date, so it's nice to go out and get to know people and not jump into a relationship right away, which I usually do."

Hey, that does work out sometimes, Lance. Just look at Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.

Sorry, Lindsay Lohan. You and AJ Lamas are not the only new couple heating up this summer.

Life is also shaping up nicely for Lance Bass, who recently landed a new job â€" and a new man.

The former 'N Sync star celebrated the 4th of July in New York's Hamptons drinking Ciroc vodka with his new beau, model Pedro Andrade.

The two were at a party in the Hamptons, one actually not attended by Diddy for once. Maybe the man who typically reigns over festivities in that area was at home, lamenting the loss of Kim Porter.

"You could tell they're very happy with each other," a People magazine source says of Bass and Andrade. "Pedro is beyond good-looking ... so hot. Pedro is spunky, full of life. They're a perfect match."

Asked about Bass and Andrade, the singer's press rep, Cindy Owen, said, "I have no comment about his personal life at this time."

But we do: Good for you, Lance! We admire you for showing Isaiah Washington that gay men can have normal love lives, too.

Last winter Bass split from Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl â€" and, in April, he told People he was loving the single life: "It's nice to be able to just date, because I had never been on a date in my life."

Meanwhile, on August 14 Bass will join the cast of Broadway's long-running musical Hairspray. He'll play the role of a Dick Clark-like TV host named Corny Collins. The movie version of this remake, starring John Travolta and Zac Efron, will also be in theaters soon.
