FuMan Skeeto Clothing

By: Kristen M. Foley

With his quick wit and knack for practical jokes, some might have thought that *NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick would've used his spare time perfecting his stand-up comedy routine. Instead of cracking jokes, Chris is taking a crack at the fashion world with his FuMan Skeeto clothing line. But would you believe that even the name of his clothes started out as an inside joke? (Something involving one of Chris' braids and a mosquito. Dare we ask more?) Don't worry, Chris' tie-dyed T-shirts and studded denim jackets are no laughing matter. They're hip, they're hot and they are made just for you. Kidzworld freelancer Kristen M. Foley had a chance to sit down with Chris in New York. Here's what the original FuMan had to say.

What made you want to do the clothing line?

Chris: I saw so many different styles on so many different people. We saw a lot of stuff that was popular overseas and started wearing it over here and people were like, 'Wow, that's a cool idea.' And it was really kind of old over in Germany and the U.K. I thought why don't we try to bring all the cultures together and make a clothing line so that kids who don't get a chance to go overseas can be stylish.

What kind of feedback have you received about the clothes?

Chris: We've received really good feedback. With the first line we had a lot of considerate people. With this line we've gone a step forward and taken all the designs into the forefront and everyone who has seen it loves it and loves the clothes.

Even with all the success you've had, is there anything that still makes you nervous?

Chris: Everything still makes me a bit nervous. We (*NSYNC) have all grown to support each other so much that when Joey and Lance were promoting their movie they'd call us and go, 'It's weird. It's not comfortable up here promoting the movie without everyone else.' When I'm doing a lot of the clothing promotion it's not comfortable for me to be here without the other guys because we are a group above anything else. We all lean on each other and we all rely on each other. When we're not [altogether] it just feels a little awkward.

It's still early but what are your plans for next year?

Chris: We're going to go back into the studio and we've got a lot of time off. We're all writing towards the new album already. The reason why we drop so many albums, (it seems like one every year) is because when we get a break, or are on the road and we're in our hotel rooms, we just start writing. We have a lot to say and a lot on our minds so a lot will come out.

1 I think the Fuman stinks.

    Its almost all about online safety. My parents don't check my online activities anymore but they always did and that was to make sure I was not online when I was supposed to be sleeping and that I was safe. There ARE unsafe people talking to kids everywhere online, even on sites like this one. It took my parents three years of me being online before they trusted that I was able to be safe on my own.

You don't have to be forced to fall in love with someone if you don't want to. Let love come in its own time.And to keep away from any problems with her if she may become mean, try just forgetting about what happened and treat her like a normal person you know, and try to avoid any arguments. If she becomes mean, maybe just walk away for a bit. And if she is still being mean, maybe confront her asking what you have ever done to make her this way towards you. If you have done nothing, then she will have no reason to be mad at you so its not your problem she is being mean so you don't have to be stressed about it.I hope this helps! :) Thanks for the advice. This takes a burden off of my head. "Bloody Wings" wrote:ignore her be the cool kind of guy dont talk to her even if she comes and talk with you.well thats my opinion Thanks for the advice. Now I know the appropriate reaction. "Dear Dish-It" wrote: Hi there! My most important advice would be to be yourself! live your life! do the things you want to do. If you've moved past what happened with your feelings for one another, just go and enjoy your time. If things are weird, it'll be because of her, not you. Stay positive and calm and I'm sure you'll have fun!   Hope you have a good time! Thanks for helping me out Dish-It. You did not only help me out, but also wished me well. You are more like a care-taker, and you made me feel good. Thank you. Moderators can now lock the topic please.
