GMTV’s Lorraine Kelly met Justin Timberlake and his friend Trace Ayala when the pair were in London promoting the new William Rast line. The former *NSYNC star talked about how they met, how Justin’s girlfriend Jessica Biel wears his designs and “constantly is telling me she needs a new pair of jeans”, and his thoughts on the passing of Michael Jackson.
“Michael is a huge influence,” Timberlake said. “Stevie Wonder is a huge influence. Prince was a huge influence, but there is something about Michael and his presentation of his music that I think influenced the world. It opened the minds of the world. I don’t think anyone could present a song better than he could. I think that there’s a million songs that have been written over time that are amazing works of art, but there’s something about Michael’s stage presence that will never, ever, ever be duplicated. There’s really only one Michael Jackson.”
The interview video at YouTube has since been removed.
