Justin Timberlake Loves To Hate Idol -- Says Taylor Hicks Can't Sing

Timberlake loves to hate Idol like some people love to hate boy bands.


Via AP:

Justin Timberlake backtracked from criticism of "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks after telling Fashion Rocks magazine the 29-year-old soul singer "can't carry a tune in a bucket."

"I have a strange relationship with that show," Timberlake tells the magazine in an interview. "I despise it, and yet I'm completely fascinated."

"The guy who won - people think he looks so normal, and he's so sweet, and he's so earnest, but he can't carry a tune in a bucket. Do you realize how much pressure it is to put on somebody all of a sudden?"

Timberlake, a member of boy band 'N Sync who is now pursuing a solo career, also said: "If he has any skeletons whatsoever; if, God forbid, he's gay, and all these people in Mississippi who voted for him are like, 'Oh, my God, I voted for a queer!' It's just too much pressure."
Timberlake's second solo album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," is set for release Sept. 12. "Sexyback," his first single from the CD, began playing on U.S. radio outlets last month.

"I wanted (the album) to look to a time when everything was really sexy," he says. "Maybe everybody was coked up, but who cares? It was hot. It was all about sex."

Applauding you Justin. Tale... (Below threshold)

Applauding you Justin. Talentless tuneless Hicks is correct. No tune or soul in that voice. No soul in that twitching he calls dancing. Closet indeed is right, just look at the mugging and posturing he does when the camera is around. Cough cough...Purple blazer . Don't worry about the rabid Soul Patrol. Remember millions may watch but it is only a rabid minority of viewers that take the time to power vote. Read the Idol boards, they also power bought his single in fear that Chris or Kat would outsell their tuneless idol.

Excuse me? Timberlake can't... (Below threshold)

Excuse me? Timberlake can't bloody sing, especially after his "resting period" (ie/ operation to remove nodules because his technique was so crap - all that breathiness is bad for the throat) - now listen to the crap excuse for a noise that comes out of his mouth. Utterly dreadful. And he's not good looking. Wonky mouth, dull eyes, broken nose. He may be able to dance a bit, but that's it. It's amazing how hype can make people believe someone's hot...
