Joey Fatone Going After Creed On Comedy Album

Scott Stapp and humor hardly go hand in hand, but Joey Fatone is doing his best to change that.

The ‘NSYNC singer is parodying Creed’s “Higher” on his upcoming comedy album.

“I want to do ‘Can You Change My Tire?’ ” Fatone said Monday. “Just silly stuff, something stupid like that.”

Creed are Fatone’s first victims outside of his own ‘NSYNC circle. He’s working on JC Chasez’s “Blowin’ Me Up (With Her Love)” and has already tackled Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River.”

“I’m doing ‘Buy Me a Liver,’ about drinking too much alcohol,” he said.

The as-yet-untitled album, which is still in the beginning stages, will include other parodies as well, but Fatone plans on doing more original material than spoofs.

“There’s a song called ‘Slurpee’ and one called ‘A Little Bit of Corpse,’ ” he said. “It’s interesting. I’m slowly writing, it’s nothing major yet.”

The album isn’t expected anytime soon, as Fatone has been busy hosting “Fame”. And when the show ends, he’ll go right into working on the next ‘NSYNC album.

“It’s going to be interesting when we sit down and decide what kind of direction we want to go,” he said. “I have no clue what it’s going to be like.”

Spending time in the studio with ‘NSYNC shouldn’t be too different than writing his comedy album. According to Chasez, Fatone has a habit of parodying most of the band’s material.

“Unfortunately I can’t really release a lot of those on album because it’d be too dirty,” Fatone said. “I have to tone it down a little.”
