Why Justin Timberlake Is Not Overrated

Contributed anonymously:

deserves all he’s gotten this year, and still there are those who don’t get it.

Some journalists even think Justin has done nuevo better than Michael Jackson. Tell me, honestly, you never at least hummed ‘Rock Your Body’. You’ve probably even danced in front of your mirror to it. You liked it. Admit it. ‘Like I Love You’, too. And who hasn’t done the chant from ‘Senorita’ with their friends?

Justin is one of the only people who still dances the way he does. Now, I’ve been dancing for twelve years, and Justin picked it up in clubs. I try diligently to imitate every one of his moves, but it’s never that good. Yes, he NEVER took dance lessons. CLUBS he picked it up in. Maybe you need to watch his 2002 VMA performance again, I mean, it’s just shocking, how amazing that is. It’s just natural funk he has, talent.

Justin works hard, he’s humble, and he’s just got a great work ethic. When he was going through a humongously devastating breakup, he didn’t sit in bed and cry for two years. He got up in the studio and did something with himself, and because he did that, he’s found a whole new person in himself. I mean, what do you do after you’ve been cheated on- (supposedly even by Wade, too, Justin’s good friend) You cry for months and months, right? Britney did. My point is, Justin is just such a hard worker.

He’s multi talented. Did anybody see VH1’s Before They Were Stars? I didn’t know he could do that. I mean, I highly recommend seeing him on that show. He really blew the house down with his voice. He sang ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’, and the Casting Director, Matt Casella heard him, he said, “Justin sang the sh** out of it!” Justin plays guitar, piano, and co-wrote every song on his entire CD, and more on No Strings Attached (at the age of 18, then), and three of *NSYNC’s best songs on Celebrity.

He’s got a great sense of humor. When he hosted SNL on Oct. 11, 2003, the director of the show said Justin was one of the best hosts they’ve ever seen. And really, it was unexpectedly hilarious, more so than usual.

Out of all the boy band’ers who’ve attempted a solo career, Justin was the only one people took seriously. How many people can go from a teen idol, to the biggest R&B singer /Artist (in general) of the year?

Not to mention Justin’s charming personality. He’s a gentleman, he always puts ladies first, and in all of his videos, yes, there are girls, but he never disrespects any of them, or dresses them is skimpy clothing so they look dumb.

Justin is extremely mature. He has that state of open mindedness about life, people, and sexuality. He has morals, and respect, and intelligence. He stays humble to his family, and has said that his grandfather, Bill Bomar always told Justin, “Always know where you’re going, and never forget where you came from.”

Keep in mind, Justin only 22, going on 23 in January. What else do you want from a guy for him to be named King Of Pop?

I know there are always going to be haters and human nature can’t be changed, but try to open up and understand, please. Let the commenting begin…

    omg stop it with the freakin LONG essay! once someone see how long it is, no one’s gonna read it! “Tell me, honestly, you never at least hummed ‘Rock Your Body’.” “You’ve probably even danced in front of your mirror to it. You liked it. Admit it. ‘Like I Love You’, too” no no no no no I have never. I dun like the song, never hummed it and never dance to it. just because you think Justin is a great artist doesn’t mean that we ALL dance to his music or at least like it.

And who hasn’t done the chant from ‘Senorita’ with their friends?” If you do those things, then you’re pathetic. You probably bought his lip balm, dolls, and pillowcases. Hey, did you sing ‘bye bye bye’ too? Probably. Of course you think ‘senorita’ is a good song. Hell, you thought that crappy as ‘space cowboy’ sh** was good too. Pathetic.

    Justin is NOT an R&B artist. Those beats were all Pharrell, Chad, and Tim’s doing. Hell, those three could make Ozzy Osbourne sound R&B. But he’d still be rock. And Justine is still pop.

    This is the biggest piece of crap I’ve read today! Justin DOESN’T deserve any of the credit he’s gotten, he’s NOT talented, his dancing looks like a constipated duck move…. Look, I understand you like him and all, but LEGITIMATE singers/dancers don’t want ANY part of it! I can honestly say I’ve never hummed or liked any of his material…unless the first *NSYNC album counts! He can’t sing, he can’t dance, and he’s not that humble! Get over it and move on!

    so what Justin is only turning 23? there are plenty of artists more talented than Justin that have achieved more at 22. for example alicia keys.

    But he forgot where he came from along time ago. Hence the ego and all the negative Nsynch remarks. Justin has not earned and does not deserve the title “King of Pop”. He has had 1 successful solo album, and people are starting to see him for what he really is. Someone that will do anything for publicity. I don’t think he will last, but that’s just my opinion. So, who knows.

    LMAO, what a stupid Justin fan! Justin works hard, he’s humble, and he’s just got a great work ethic. When he was going through a humongously devastating breakup, he didn’t sit in bed and cry for two years. No. He didn’t care, because he’s an insensitive sh**. Instead, he made up lies of Brit cheating (yeah, OOKAY Justin. you’re the one that was seen with the brunette girl the day before the break-up), and milking the relationship and using Brit’s name for PUBLICITY. co-wrote every song on his entire CD Horribly. His lyrics are so STUPID they make me laugh. Seriously. When I listened to Justified, these following songs just honestly made me crack up: Senorita (at the end when Justin is chanting the girl’s part), Take It From Here (I wanna be your sky, so blue and high. LMAO….come on. are you 10, Justin?), Oh No What You Got (I don’t remember what, I just remember there was something very stupid about that song), Last Night (LMAO. HE SOUNDS LIKE A FREAKING GIRL WITH A VERY HIGH-PITCHED VOICE HERE….about 10 times more than he usually does. When I heard this song I was just laughing my ass off! It’s hilarious!), Right For Me (pure stupidity). I know there was one more, but I don’t remember which one. Not to mention Justin’s charming personality. He’s a gentleman, he always puts ladies first, and in all of his videos, yes, there are girls, but he never disrespects any of them, or dresses them is skimpy clothing so they look dumb. Is that a joke? I wouldn’t say that performing with Kylie Minogue and then talking about her ass DISRESPECTFULLY is respectful. I wouldn’t say that saying Christina’s “skirts were nice” is respectful. I wouldn’t say that disrespecting Britney OVER and OVER again is respectful. And I’m sure you know about what how Justin sold her out on Barbara Walters, and what he said on the radio…but I’m not even talking about that. I’m talking about how back in 2001, he was doing some TV interview, and the lady asked him what he thought of Britney’s Slave 4 U performance, and he made a motion with his hands that meant her BOOBS, and then he said “She has a nice ass.” And wtf, this is even his GIRLFRIEND. Yeah. Justin is SO respectful to women. He SO doesn’t degrade them. And I have so much more to say too, but I just answered to those, because those were the most stupidest points you made, and the most important for me to respond to.

    I agree with your “essay” that you wrote. I really like Justins music & he deserves the success he’s got… and no I don’t have his pillowcases, lipbalms or whatever some of you said… but I do have a few posters… some of you haters just can’t deal with the fact that Justin has fans.

  8. Jive says:

    We know J is talented, but does he deserve such titles, king of pop, and artist of’, ‘the year, and all of the accolades he won for the male categories. 50 cent had a bigger year and even Beyonce.

  9. RainWater says:

    There is nothing special about Justin Timberlake. He is a total girly man and his music is awful. It’s nothing but world Britney didn’t love me enough, please love me, I need someone to love me. Yeah, he can dance but that’s it. He’s not good looking either.
