Sarah McLachlan Admits To Liking *NSYNC

Sarah McLachlan

Singer-songwriter tells The New York Daily News while she and her Lilith Fair colleagues can’t compete with stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera for radio play, she has no hard feelings towards the pop crowd. “I believe music is cyclical,” she says. “I also believe there’s a place for everybody, in my naïve, hippie fantasy world that I live in. Music is so subjective and there’s a lot of people that love all different kinds. Hell, I’m guilty of loving some songs, embarrassingly enough. And that Justin [Timberlake] is hot!”

    Who doesn’t like N’sync except for close minded Backstreet Boys fans and upset Britney Spear fans. You can’t deny N’sync talent. These kids are good at what they do and they will be around for a long time. They will be the last group standing tall while being inducted into the rock&roll hall of fame

    *NSync isn’t rock & roll, so they won’t be inducted into the Rock Hall. But they no doubt would make it into the Boy Band Hall of Fame, should that institution ever exist. *NSync is pop … great pop, by the way. And a LOT of us love Backstreet as well as *NSync. Please don’t try to speak for the Backstreet fans…please don’t get hysterical like you usually like to.

    I like people like Sarah McLachlan who don’t rip on pop acts, like Amy Lee did. Just shows maturity. Even though she is more of an “artist” than Britney, Christina, BSB, Nsync or any other pop artist, she still didn’t rip on them. That was real cool of her.

    Nsync does have talent. But they are barely even standing now, I doubt they will be standing 10 years from now. Justin and JC are better off as solo artists

    “*NSync isn’t rock & roll, so they won’t be inducted into the Rock Hall.” Michael Jackson isn’t exactly rock & roll either, but he’s been inducted. “Even though she is more of an “artist” than Britney, Christina, BSB, Nsync or any other pop artist, she still didn’t rip on them.” How is she more of an “artist”?

    Michael Jackson has done straight rock & roll many times in his 30-year career. The Jacksons’ 1980 album “Triumph” and 1984 album “Victory” were both rock albums “Victory” had a Jacksons-Mick Jagger hard rock duet titled “State of Shock.” Eddie Van Halen, arguably one of rock’s best guitarists, played on “Beat It.” Multitalented Michael and The Jacksons have done both pop and rock. *NSync has done pop only, and, if you read the rules of nomination and induction into the Rock Hall, they really don’t fit. This is not to say that *NSync doesn’t deserve hall of fame honors somewhere. The Vocal Group Hall of Fame would seem a likely place for them, because their harmonies are stellar. There are many temporary and permanent installations at the Rock Hall in Cleveland that honor pop stars. Right now, costumes from TLC, Britney and other pop stars are on display at the Rock Hall. It’s a wonderful place to visit…it’s worth a trip to Cleveland just to check it out.

    I don’t think *NSync or Backstreet will be standing in 10 years. Pop is a very fleeting career. Tastes and times change. Audiences change. Let’s hope we’re all ALIVE in 10 years!

    The rock&roll hall of fame isn’t just for rock and roll artist it is also for R&B artist country artist and more. Clive Davis was inducted into the rock&roll hall of fame.

    There nothing wrong with liking N’sync. I notice people lie to make out N’sync fan base to be 14 years old girls but if you go to a concert than you know that is not true and I notice that people try and make out N’sync to be dance pop but they can actually sing. Are they the best no but they can sing and that is all that matter. Those guys are good at what they do. Dancing singing writing producing and more.

    I like Sarah McLachlan’s music but I don’t like her taste in men…she thinks Justin is “hot” and likes N Sync?! Gee, I wonder just how much she’d been drinking during that interview, God forbid!

    The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame + Museum is, in fact, for rock and roll. The Hall’s mandate is to recognize the contributions of those who have had a significant impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of rock and roll by inducting them into the Hall of Fame. There are multiple categories in which a person can be nominated to the Rock Hall: Performer, Non-Performer, Early Influence, and Side Men. Artists (performers) become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Criteria include the influence and significance of the artist’s contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll. Clive Davis was named to the Rock Hall as a Non-Performer in 2000 because of his influence on rock (discovering artists, producing, A&R, etc.). The Hall says that he shaped the modern music industry. The Rock Hall is not open to country or R&B or any other artists unless the artist has had a major impact on rock & roll, such as Johnny Cash (inducted as a performer) and Robert Johnson (inducted as an early influence) and Parliament-Funkadelic (inducted as performers). Disk jockeys can be inducted (Alan Freed, who coined the term “rock & roll,” inducted as a non-performer). Today’s popular “boy bands” such as *NSync and Backstreet Boys would need to make a significant, lasting contribution to rock and roll to be considered, and no artist is considered until 25 years after the release of the artist’s first album. But as I said in an earlier post, the Hall has many items on display (mostly costumes) right now from current pop artists such as TLC, Britney and many others. Check out the Hall’s informative, searchable Web site at I have been to the Hall four times — it’s a great museum. Plan to spend an entire day, better two entire days, at the Hall in Cleveland.

    Hey people don’t argue with each other! She just told her opinion that’s all! What’s wrong with that? Is there a rule in the world that’s saying “people must not like NSYNC”? Come on grow up!
