Not only does *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake admit to smokin’ blunts with Nelly in the December issue of FHM magazine, but he takes offense to interviewer Rory Buckeridge’s assertion that the Backstreet Boys are a better looking band than *NSYNC. “You think they’re better-looking band than us?,” Timberlake asked, before breaking down and admitting, “Yeah, you’re right, I guess they are. Kevin [Richardson] is a pretty little motherfu**er. We’re just not as manicured as the Backstreet Boys.” On the elaborate beard’s sported off and on by the members, most notably AJ McLean, Timberlake said, “That thing looks like it takes hours to do. That bitch has it’s own agent. You gotta love it though.”
