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.

  • The Jizzle Tizzle
  • Taylor Hicks Half Cocked

"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.

Gee, Justin's so wrong. Taylor is the best, he can sing, and he has a great personality. And I doubt he's gay.

All of you who want to dismiss Taylor Hicks as a flash in the pan need to give this a listen: http://www.gofish.com/userVide... THIS is Taylor Hicks. He wrote and recorded this song about 10 years ago. He was just a kid. Read the lyrics as he sings them. I find them hauntingly beautiful and sad. Very soulful. American Idol is keeping him from performing his own works at events that they sponsor. Their huge loss. Taylor financed this recording himself, so the budget wasn't big. Therefore, the sound suffers in places. But the raw talent is obvious. Give this man a chance. He's all about the music.....and the music is awesome.
