    Wow. I seriously don’t know what to say, I mean its right on the tip of my tongue, lol. But if he’s that confident in his album then I know it will be amazing, whether Justin outsells it or not (which I’m sure he probably will). Can’t wait for the new cd!! God all these articles just make me want it more & more!

    I never thought in a million years Nick would say something like that. I think that is very sweet and I hope people learn to respect him now. He isn’t gonna diss Justin by what he said, so please respect him as an artist. I agree with what all of you said. :)

    Lets be real here. Nick seems like he already knows that Justin is going to sell more then him. Nick doesn’t seem to confident himself if you ask me. As for Justin’s girly voice. Nick has a very feminine sounding voice if you ask me. He has his parts where he can sound a little ‘girly’ too.

    Of course Nick doesn’t care about sales. This is a SIDE PROJECT! Justin on the other hand is going all-out for a successful solo career. If he wasn’t he wouldn’t have made all those collabo’s on his album. Nick just wanted to do something on his own with no collaborations etc. He cares about the music and as he said he’s happy with the music he’s made. That’s all that matters. Record sales and Popularity are meaningless when it comes to music.

    Nick is soooo sweet! What he said about the record sales is VERY true!! It really doesn’t matter who does better b/c its ALL about the music! And nicks music is way better than Justin’s! i hope nick does do better thou because he IS better–and his songs kick a**!!!! Least he knows thou that if Justin does sell more–it wont matter. And nick is NOT fat–he’s PHAT–so get it right! lol….are you BSB fans excited for this next week when he’s going to be on making the video?!!!!! I AM!!

    I’m glad Nick said what he said, but I know that if Justin said the same thing people would be calling him a liar,etc. The poor guy just can’t win. Why do people keep saying that Justin just wants to go solo, but Nick is just doing a “project”. I don’t want to start crap, but it seems to me that it’s the other way around. Nick didn’t leave the Firm like the rest of BSB did, he recorded his album when BSB were supposed to be recording, he’s repeatedly commented on how depressed he was with BSB (i.e. Making of the Video commercial where he said there was a point with BSB where he was going down), he says he hasn’t seen his bandmates in months, etc. Justin on the other hand, waited until Nsync was on break, has made several appearances with them, continues to talk to them, and hasn’t done anything to alienate his bandmates. I don’t get how that makes Justin the bad guy. Am I missing something here? Or are you guys just blind?
