I'm not even an Nsync fan but I checked this out. He doesn't ever explicitly say it's not happening (or that it is happening). He just addresses the rumor. As in he talks about it. And tiptoes around saying it is not going to happen. In fact he sounds like he would want to do it.
So if it was actually going to happen, this is exactly the correct way for him to talk about it. He gave physical and plausible evidence for a "probable" start of the rumors, pushing the blame elsewhere.
