When Rolling Stone magazine called Justin Timberlake the new “King of Pop”, I nearly puked. He is in NO WAY the new King of Pop. He’s only had one hit album–that didn’t even peek at #1 on the Billboard Charts–a couple of hit singles, and won a few awards. Big deal. Does that rightfully give him the “King of Pop” title?! No! After all, Michael Jackson didn’t become King of Pop overnight.
So why, might I ask, is there this sudden interest in Justin? Perhaps it’s his looks, though to me he is ugly. Or maybe it’s his dancing. But let’s face it: anybody can dance when they’ve got the right choreographer…he certainly didn’t make up those dance moves himself. Just like anyone can look good when they work out every day at a gym and wear makeup and style their hair the right way.
So really WHAT is it? It can’t be his singing…he sounds like a GIRL! Songwriting? Nah…he didn’t write any of his songs. So I conclude that it’s gotta be the hype around Justin and his doomed relationship with Britney Spears. A pop star, whom at the time, was a lot more famous than himself. He completely used Britney to sell records. If you Justin fans can’t see this than you’ve been brainwashed by him. He made everyone think that he was totally innocent in the little game they played. He called Britney the “cheater” and basically begged for sympathy. Well, it looks like he got his wish, didn’t he? He’s nothing but a tool to the music industry. A publicity whore.
Justin is also very bitchy and rude to his fans. One time, while he was eating at a restaurant surrounded by eleven–ELEVEN?!?!?!–bodyguards, he told some fans to “fu** off” cause he was only there to eat a hamburger. Then he had his PUBLICIST apologize to the fans…he didn’t even have the decency to apologize himself. He has also dissed his own group, *NSYNC, calling them “Disneyland”, and must have stores closed especially for him so he can shop alone. Who does he think he is, anyway? The President of the United States?!?!?!
Anyway, finally we’re onto his so-called “talents”, or lack there of. Face it…he sounds like a girl. Tries way too hard to copy Michael Jackson, and even stole some of Michael’s left over songs and just basically changed the lyrics. If it weren’t for the Neptunes and Timbaland, his album would be average, according to the critics. Even to me it is still an average pop/R&B album. Nothing special. HE’S nothing special. Just because he hangs out with the right people he’s suddenly become the “hottest thing around”. Gee–if I hang out with the right people and pretend to have talent, will I become famous like him, too?! Suddenly makes one wonder, doesn’t it?
