Justin Timberlake Details Article
November 14, 2002 – Contributed by sweetcheeks: Justin is an alien. A special kind of alien, sort of like E.T. (he’s cute and you want to root for him) combined with Natasha Henstridge in Species (blond, lethal in the wrong doses). But, of course, he isn’t from outer space. He’s from Memphis, by way of Orlando. And he’s not the spawn of some planet full of comely, falsetto, slinky-dancing white people. He’s very much all ours.
Quick Reviews On ‘Justified’ And ‘Stripped’
November 14, 2002 – Cyclone of Australia’s Beat magazine gave brief thoughts on the new albums from Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake. On ‘Justified’, Clyclone writes, “While the album doesn’t quite live up to the claim on the retail sticker (‘This is urban re-invented’), let alone the hype, it is a credible effort.” And on ‘Stripped’, he says, “The main problem is that the new ‘Xtina’ sounds like everyone (Keys to Mariah Carey to Pink) but herself. Stripped is compelling and almost convincing – it’s confusing!”
BMG All About the Dollar
November 14, 2002 – Contributed by elgato: HitsDailyDouble.com has a cartoon that goofs on BMG’s way of doing business. It starts off with *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake singing and dancing to his song ‘Like I Love You’ as BMG officials count their money. The BMG officials are dressed in Cabaret-like outfits, implying they run a circus. They show a huge billboard promoting Justin’s album. Behind it is a small little poster promoting Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter. Then Lance Bass comes down in a spaceship and asks, “What’d I miss?” and takes off again. Everyone claps. Then Nick is run over by a tank labeled “Britney Coming Soon,” implying that BMG isn’t interested in promoting Nick’s album but wants to move on to something that will surely make a quick buck. The last scene says “Money makes the world go round.” The cartoon is called ‘Airhead.’ The cartoon has since been removed.
Justin Timberlake Falls Flat With ‘Justified’
November 13, 2002 – Chad Jackson of The Cavalier Daily reviewed the debut solo effort from Justin, calling ‘Justified’ “an R&B-influenced album that falls flat.” Jackson added, “The Neptunes definitely are the highlight of this album, and they leave the listener wishing they would collaborate with someone other than music industry shills like Timberlake and Nelly.’Justified’ almost could be an album from one of the ‘American Idol’ rejects — Justin Guarini easily could have taken Timberlake’s place to yield the same result.” The full story at cavalierdaily.com has since been removed.
