Spin Editor Comments On Aguilera And Timberlake Releases
August 28, 2002 – Associated Press spoke with industry insiders on the big fall lineup of new albums hitting stores. Alex Pappademas, an associate editor at Spin commented on Christina Aguilera’s yet to be titled new album saying, “There’s always a sense with these teen-pop people that they are very micromanaged. She seems like she’s breaking out and doing controversial things … (but) there’s always the possibility of a backlash against her, like, she’s trying to be something she’s not.” Pappademas seems to be betting on *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake to be the big winner with his solo debut. “There’s going to be a lot of attention paid to this, because of all the boy-band types he seems to be the who will break out,” he said.
