Lance Bass has made sure people know exactly who he is NOT -- and that's Taylor Swift.

Like seemingly everybody else on the planet, the NSYNC member has been aware of the recent attention the 'Bad Blood' singer has been receiving at recent NFL games.

With romance rumors running rampant regarding the 33-year-old songstress and Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce, more eyes have been on whether or not Swift will be in attendance for the tight end's games.

Over the last month, Swift has attended three of Kelce's games - with NFL cameras proudly showing off the star multiple times throughout the game. In fact, even Kelce commented on how he believed the NFL was "overdoing it" when it came to coverage of Swift.

This led to the league sharing the following statement to PEOPLE: "We frequently change our bios and profile imagery based on what’s happening in and around our games, as well as culturally. The Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce news has been a pop cultural moment we’ve leaned into in real time, as it’s an intersection of sport and entertainment, and we’ve seen an incredible amount of positivity around the sport."

But despite some critics believing that Taylor's appearances are "destroying" American football, it seems that some people just can't stop talking about her - even when she's not at the game!

During Monday night's Chargers game at SoFi Stadium, NSYNC icon Lance Bass was spotted in the crowd by the broadcast crew -- and he poked fun at the Swift/Kelce drama in the best way possible. Check out Bass' hilarious response below:

As the thousands in attendance saw Bass appear on the big screen, the boyband star took the cheeky opportunity to hold up a handwritten sign reading: "Not Taylor Swift".

Bass later shared the video to his Instagram page, where he captioned the clip: "In case anyone was confused." And it's safe to say his fans were thoroughly entertained, with one fan joking: "Lance…you’re the Taylor Swift of 20 years ago."

A second quipped: "Honestly I would be more excited at seeing Lance Bass then Taylor Swift."

And a third commented: "Just when I think you can't get any better you do."

But I'm sure Taylor would have seen the funny side of the joke, considering how much she gushed over the band's reunion at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.

While the band presented Swift with the award for Best Pop Video, not only did Justin Timberlake describe the songstress as "unstopple", but the 'You Belong With Me' singer clearly got a chance to meet her childhood heroes. "I had your dolls," she excitedly told the band, before adding: "Like, are you doing something?

"You’re pop personified," she added, "so to receive this from your golden pop hands is really too much!"
