One Direction may be in store for another shakeup before too long -- at least, according to a surprisingly dishy Lance Bass.

"I just see Harry [Styles] leaving soon, and I don't see another One Direction album happening after he leaves," Bass said on the The Meredith Viera Show. He also noted that Styles has been recording on his own for some time and planned to leave One Direction before Malik broke away first. "Harry Styles has been ready to go solo for many months. The Zayn thing was just spur-of-the-moment, but it was the best thing [Zayn] could have done because now he's a household name."

Bass continued on a more positive note, saying he suspected the guys will always remain friends, and also shed some like on how his own band breakup -- that would be *NSYNC -- went down. (Hint: Justified just got too huge.)
