“There were many moments in my teenage years where I succumbed to, um, the weirdness of the group I was in. And in trying to conform—we’re marionettes!— I ended up looking like a moron.”
- Justin Timberlake mildly disses the band that is responsible for all he has today.
Whoa, Justin. Whoa. Here we go. You are tearin’ up my heart with all this. You apparently don’t understand the massive effect that NSYNC had on me and tons and tons of other people. You’re being so selfish with this kind of talk, do you realize this? I drive myself crazy when I think about how awesome NSYNC was, and I would give everything I own to be able to experience that magic again. And you have the nerve to say that you looked like a moron? You were at the height of your hotness when you had those beautiful, bouncy curls: it was clear then that God must have spent a little more time on you. But this new Justin Timberlake, the guy with no hair and a bad attitude? It makes me ill*. So I guess the game is over, JT. Good luck with Jessica Biel or whatever, but this I promise you: you just lost a fan.
*Another thing that makes me ill is the possibility that no one will understand or appreciate that all the italicized words are titles of NSYNC songs. Because they are. And they are so meaningful.
