I will start it the way I always start to thank people: I thank God, Mom, Dad, Sis, Bro, Kelly Belly, my friends, my family, Johnny Wright, Chicken (Melinda), Security, our band and crew members that made our last tour a huge success, and especially Leslie, for all the blood, sewat and tears we all went through (We will miss you. Love you!)

Now I would like to thank those who made this album "without no strings": Pinicchio, Lambchop, Howdie Doody, X the Owl, King Friday, Cecil, The Muppets and the late Jim Henson for his years of entertaining in the past, present and future.

And for the guys: the closer and closer we are, the stronger we become and there ain't no thang that can put us back on a string. Thanks to all of you. You made my dream a reality.

Last but not least the fans! Thanks for you guys being there for us. We are so thanksful for you cutting our strings and letting us be free with creativity and inspiration for this album.

I love you all-Joey

I always dedicate each album to people that helped influence me on the making of the album. All of you are Celebrities to me. Most importantly, I would like to thank Mom, Dad, Steven, Janine, Kelly, Doozer, all my relatives and friends. You are my foundation and I am glad you are always there for me.

For all the people at our management company, record company, touring company, thank you for all you do to keep *NSYNC on top. Especially Johnny "decision maker" Wright, Melinda "Chicken" Bell, J to the O to the E "Chunka Chunka" Mulvihill, Tim "Losing Weight" Miller and Dave "They are coming to get me" Brown, thanks for putting up with me.

Randy, Loonie, Dre, Todd, Roger, Mike G., Eric, Mike H and Mo: thank you for hanging with me night after night, hour after hour may the marathon continue.

David, Bruce and Brad: you all know you are Celebrities in my eyes. Hey, since I said your name in the album, I should get $200 from each of you.

To all the producers, writers, choreographers (Wade, you can fill in for me anytime), our band, our crew and the Village People, your creativity has not gone unnoticed, thanks. A special thanks to Johana...your blue box is in the mail.

To all the people that thaought me what being a "Celebrity" was all about like Frankie Lymon, Marilyn Monroe, The Rat Pack and all of today's Celebs including Paul Ruebens, Ron, Jeremy, Robert Englund and Sandra Bullock. But seriously, to all the peopple that believed in us, had a place in their hearts for us and made this all possible, I can't thank you enough.

For all of you that picked up this album, I hope you enjoy it just as much as we enjoyed recording it and being on tour.

Lance, JC, Chris and Justin, thank you for your creativity and ideas to make this tour and album a success. I love you guys, and I support you in all endeavors. You guyrs are "TIGHT WORK."

I never thought that we would get this far and make our dreams come true but this is just the beginning and the five of us have a long road ahead of us as artists and musicians not just celebrities.
