Justin Timberlake Lays into Taylor Hicks, American Idol

by at . Comments

Say this about Justin Timberlake: he isn't afraid to share his opinion. First, Cameron Diaz's other half talked about ex-girlfriend, Britney Spears.

Now? The former boy band member has a few choice words for American Idol and its latest victor, Taylor Hicks.

"I have a strange relationship with [American Idol]," Timberlake says. "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? 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. But that's what we do in America. The American dream is still to be young, rich, and famous."

Ummm ... what?!? Isn't this the same guy who supposedly offered support to Lance Bass and his homosexuality? Some P.R. dude sure isn't watching JT's sexy back.
