Pop Stars ‘Talk The Talk’ But Don’t ‘Walk The Walk’

Contributed anonymously:

Walter Scott of ‘Parade’ magazine was quizzed by a read on why pop stars like Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake of *NSYNC feel the need to talk about their musical growth, rather than show it. Scott spoke with legendary producer Clive Davis, responsible for the careers of Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys. Davis said, “When you start out the way Justin [Timberlake] and Christina [Aguilera] did, there is no getting away from that beginning. No matter what they do, they will always be associated with their teen idol past. I think they’ve got to work ten times harder than most of the pop stars to prove that they are credible artists. They’ve both come into their own and I have seen a lot of growth.” Still, not everyone is sold on the two pop stars turning ‘mature’, including Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com: “What has changed about either of them? Both of them rely on the same things to stay relevant; Good looks and pop hooks.”

    Christina and Justin are the biggest phonies. They became celebrities by singing pop, but now they act like they are hip hop and r&b and pop wasn’t really them. When in truth, pop was them but they are trying to deny their past to get new fans now that hip hop is more popular. They now act different and talk different (aka black). They are a bunch of phonies and anyone who buys their transformation is a big moron.

    All of these new batch of pop stars all talk trash about their old teenybopper ways. I would like to hear one of them at least acknowledge that it was their teeny bop sound and cute images that made them millions, gave them a fan base and popularity. If they want to move on and try a different sound and look -fine. No one held a gun to their heads and made them sing, BYE-BYE-BYE or Genie in a Bottle. Another thing all of these stars had SO MANY PRICKS up them I’m starting to think they are becoming one. They all make me sick in SOME way: Like Brit-sometimes a woman sometimes a porn star, sometimes her loneliness is killing her sometimes not, and lying. Justin’s I’m just down with the brothas. and Christina’s image and whining & Pink not being Gay-heh well maybe not BUT you are bisexual saying & Chris.is a slut & saying “embrace the freak in you” . They ALL are Hypocritical & some are JUST TALENT VACUUMS. Not hating-just me venting on the biz.

    Christina thinks she’s some big artist but not one single member of musical society respects her or her music. She’s just another teenybopper trying to pretend that they have talent and credibility. Even artists like Pink and Linda Perry are calling out this phony whore for what she really is. She’s pure disposable pop trash. She should get a job doing what she does best, giving head to big black dudes. Remember when she said “I NEED BLACK CO** NOW!”? Nuff said.

    Walter Scott is just jealous of Christina’s success. not showing… MY ASS! 3 Grammys and counting that shows it all

    Also, I never heard Linda Perry call Christina Aguilera a phoney. Pink just said she NEVER …’, ‘Pink just said she Never liked her. Maybe she alluded to her phoniness but I never heard this. Didn’t Chris and Pink share a kiss a few years ago? Anyway, Justin, Ashanti, Brit, Pink, Madonna and Christina A. are ALL full of themselves. Certainly hypocritical in their behavior. Every last one of them.

    This isn’t about Britney. A lot of you need to stop using her as a scapegoat and take a good long look at Christina Aguilera. PS. NO, I am not a Britney fan either.

  6. JMAX says:

    Christina Aguilera has 3 Grammy awards. But Britney holds 3 world records for her album sales.. Come on, Milli Vanilli won a Grammy.

  7. xtina_fan_4ever says:

    I bet Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake will be the last pop idols standing.

  8. elperrosync says:

    People like N’sync or Christina Aguilera are lucky that other people are open to their music. Sure not everybody is convince but at least people are giving their music a change unlike these close mind haters on popdirt

  9. DJNY2AI3 says:

    I agree with you if pop was still the way to go Justin and Christina would have still been sing pop tunes. now they want to act all hard now that hip hop and rnb is the mainstream. To me they just make themselves look foolish for trying too hard to fit in.

  10. getalifeyall says:

    If they don’t see them growing artistically, it’s more than likely because they aren’t paying attention to the music and are just going on what they see in magazines and on gossip shows. Talentless and desperate journalists do that quite often.

  11. hellahooked says:

    I agree with this. Well, the only thing that has changed since they were in the pop scene with Justin is that, he sounds like a fricken girl(i think he has a problem down there) and his head is up his ass and Christina just bitches about everything and is jealous of more successful artists.
