JT Brings Sexy Back

JT is in Paris promoting his new "club funk" sound. He did an interview with MTV to discuss the direction of his new album. What I like about JT (besides the fact that I am a sucker for a POP star) is that he really seems to take his career seriously. He is always passionate about whatever it is he is working on. We always look forward to anything JT may be doing in the future, including marrying Cameron. MTV reports:

Timberlake modeled himself after David Bowie and Prince, and describes "SexyBack" as Bowie and David Byrne covering James Brown's "Sex Machine." "That's the closest I could come," he said. "That's all of my influences for that song."

"SexyBack" doesn't qualify as rock or straight funk — and for now, Timberlake's happy with the description "club funk."

"I like that," he said. "Anything that I do and anything Timbaland does is going to be funky. That's a rule of thumb. And that's how the song got started, going more dance rock, club funk. There are people out there pushing the boundaries of music; Gnarls Barkley, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, they always push themselves. The most you can hope for is music that pushes your sound as much as they push theirs."

He could not be more right about The Red hot Chili Peppers. Their latest album is surprisingly amazing. Lots more images of JT putting on a show so

I'm loving Gnarles Barkley's "St. Elsewhere" and always loved The Red Hot Chili Peppers, but how can JT's song be compared to theirs. I'm just not a fan of Justin pre or post N-Stink. In my opinion he is definitely not cute and when he talks his voice sounds like he never hit puberty. I don't like this song at all, it's just annoying. Justin will NEVER be close to David Bowie and Prince, but maybe he can pull a couple of more hits out of his career because some girls think he's sexy. I think if it's up to Justin to bring the "sexyback" then ladies we are all doomed.

I commend JT for having taken control of his destiny/music. He could not have picked better music icons to try to learn from. Prince and Bowie music has always been evolving and uniquely theirs. As has Madonna. It is in part why their careers have had logevity. Regardless what some might think of Cameron, I thinks she has been good for JT as it has exposed him to more of the world than just the life of a pop star. I have to think that had he stayed with Brittney he would not have developed the musical and worldly soophistication that he has acquired since he went solo. Poor Britney, I wonder if she has any regrets?
