What's Justin Smoking?

What's Justin Smoking?

Everybody is talking about the JT article where he admits to doing drugs. WOW - what a shocker. Do we really think anyone in Hollywood has not experimented to some extent? The Observer article where JT admits to using is actually really interesting. They talk about his new record and how he was influenced by Bowie and Prince. They describe his vision and the talented producers involved in his latest album. You can tell how much passion he has for music. He even mentions his fellow peers like Britney and Christina. Here's the buzzing drug quotes:

'What I really think is that I've never done anything that bad,' he says. 'I don't show up drunk to functions; the drugs that I do have been in my own private time. I've never been arrested - though not to say that I won't!

.... When asked if he'd ever want to be president of the United States - 'I've done way too many drugs already,' he responds, without missing a beat. 'I've already inhaled and I've already...who knows. I don't know if I want that responsibility.' So what's he done? 'I fear that if I said that, I'd fuel the fire, so forgive me,' he says. 'I'm just like everyone else, I get completely plastered, I've done my fair share of drugs and I've been caught places with my pants down; it's just I make sure there are no cameras around. If we get into this whole [drugs] conversation we don't have enough time. Some drugs haven't been legalised because it will ruin the other drugs, like nicotine and tobacco. Nicotine is more addictive than heroin. I'll leave the preaching to the preachers - my grandfather's a preacher - but I believe you don't do anything to excess. They always say too much of a good thing could be a bad thing. I try to live my life in a well-rounded manner. We all make mistakes.

Memo To: JT Subject: Drug Use Dimetapp doesn't count

I think his statement are totally contrived for publicity. What a loser. Could it be because his album is projected not to do well and his first single sucks hmm.....YES! He has probably hit a joint once and now he's this hard core druggie. Did anyone noticed how he kept using the present tense. "the drugs I do"

I have to agree with everyone on here that says this is all publicity. I cannot stand when celebrities do this whole "truth" thing in magazines. It is such a publicity stunt. Honestly, I think everyone knew that him and everyone else in Hollywood has at some point dabbled into drugs. Why share your personal life randomly with the world? I think it is just another attempt at a former boy-bander trying to erase that image and come up with a tougher image of his own. Pathetic attempt, in my opinion.

Jennifer76 - I agree, I think it is all about toughening his image and getting some street cred...just sad!

ok so i read the article, its not boring its just not exciting really. he is pretty open and he was pretty honest and forthright and that is something i can appreciate...he just seems pretty down to earth for all of the money he makes and seems like a hard worker so that is respectable. he is a perfectionist which is wonderful! hahaha it was a long article!
pinkangelmonkey pinkangelmonkey 10 years
why did he volunteer all of that information? that is dumb! i dont understand... oh i guess he did drugs before the interview. maybe he did want some street cred or thought he would look tough or better yet cool. im so glad im not young enough to have read that and been influenced by something he said.

I don’t know – but while reading interview i got the feeling that Justin is still thinks that he is SOOO big superstar. That when he will show to us all his “genuine” & super music – the world will come crazy. The critics praises will follow, 60 thousands stadiums ticket sales, millions of screaming fans... Those times have gone. And Britney can’t get it. That there wont be again this lyllipop life with TRL, millions fan sites and stuff. Pop is dead. And so are popstars. I’m gonna cry now. It’s sad. I remember how i was waiting for MTV awards, Grammy, AMA’s. I was waiting weeks before it, reading news, who will perform. Remember the performances of Britney, Cristina, Ricky Martin. Backstreet boys, Madonna, Eminem, J.Lo? That was interesting. People waited to se it. MTV video awards were the best ever. Now, when there perform some rockers or rappers.... In 40 cases i don’t even know who they are. Now i don’t even watch these shows. Only movie awards. In last Grammy i watched Madonna & then turned of. Laugh it or not but i miss poptimes.

Oh Gosh... talking about boring. I decide to read the full article. I wish i wouldn’t do it. I read 3 or 4 indentions & than continue to reading it by pieces. That’s what i’m talking about. I’m absolutely don’t care to read about his music, song, producers... And when author is telling that he is like the sexiest male superstar – oh, please, author – you have been stuck in time. It was 3 years ago. Justin: “'With the exception of the last two years, during which I've taken a break - if you call four films a break...”. Oh yeah... he is so proud of his so called filming career. Lets see... 1.Edison. I’m speechless. Go rent it. I saw it. Worst movie ever. Worst acting (from Justin. Other actors were trying) )& directing ever. Clishe after clishe. I was sitting and laughing at Justin, at his tries to act. Despite that it was supposed to be drama. It’s easy to pretend in Video clips. But play serious role is way harder. Justin thought that it’s just like that easy. For his excuse i can say that it was very, very bad directing. Like if one of Alias episodes will come out on Full Screen & pretend to be Action blockbuster. 2. Alpha Dog. Didn’t saw it so can’t say nothing about it. Read reviews which were good. Nick Cassavetes directed it (the one who direct Note book). So the movie can’t be bad. In trailer & fotos i see.. well... Justin playing some sort of himself. The way he desperately wants to be. Tatoos all around, bald head.... Like i sad. It’s easy when you are playing some sort of yourself: like Eminem, Britney, 50 cent, Mandy Moore. But if you want to a real actor – it takes a lot more. Here Justin was o’k, playing some dark version of himself. And in Edison, when he tried to play a serious role - he completely failed. 3. Soutland tales – saw a pictures with Justin. Read the review. Author smeared the movie in dirt. Justin wasn’t even mentioned in the review. 4. That movie with Christina Ricchi. Don’t even remember the name. It’s funny but when he decide to star in movies i thought that he will make it. He was so popular & everything that he did was successful.

Very true tamplier. Justin is an idiot. Millions of teens look up to him and what he is bascially saying is that it is ok to do drugs as long as it is in moderation 'I believe you don't do anything to excess'. 'Nicotine is more addictive than herion'??? What is he saying, that teens should do a little heroin rather than smoking? He is also suggesting that some drugs should actually be legal but are'nt only because they might 'ruin the other drugs like nicotine and tobacco'!!! (and FYI nicotine & tobacco aren't two separate drugs, nicotine is the "drug" found IN tobacco). I actually can't believe he said all this and I think it was incredibly irresponsible of him!!!!

Justin – your time has past. You caught up illness that is calling – BORING. You joined the club with Aniston, Aguilera, Avril Lavine, Jessica Simpson... I used to like you. In your “Cry me a river” days. You were hot. But then you decide to look older by stop shaving. You thought that you look very boylish, not manly. And you grew that ugly beard. Now you shaved it... but no one cares about you anymore. The train has gone. Justin – you should get one thing. PEOPLE LIKED YOU ONLY BECAUSE OF YOUR PRETTY LOOK. Alongside with that they liked your music too. You put so much effort that people would respect you not for your look but for music. But you can’t get it – you become popular only because of your pretty curly face & relationships with Britney. At first fans were forgiving you shaved head & beard. But than they just have lost interest in you. That’s life. Only Britney somehow can still stay in spotlight. Now i look at you & just can’t get – how did i liked you before? It’s written on your face – boring, boring, boring....

The person who wrote that he wants to say “i’m cool, i even do drugs, that’s how cool i am” is soooo true. Gosh Justin, how low can you fall for the attention. If he would be caught on drug and than sad things like that – it’s one thing. But when you say it all of a nothing, just before your album coming out – pleeese. Who are you fooling? I guess Justin thought that people will be shocked, and media will attack him, because he is.... like.... was an teenage idol.... and it bad example for them.... and everyone will write about it... and he will be back to sporlight. Yeah wright.... Keep hoping Justin... keep hoping. It’s like when 15-18 old teenage is telling all his friends in school that he already had sex. That’s how Justin sounds. Very kiddish.

It's kind of weird he would just come out & admit his drug use- as he said he's never had pics taken of him doing drugs so I wouldn't have thought it was something interviewers would even ask him about. I guess he wants a more "hardcore" image now.

I think the big deal was made bc clinton said he didnt inhale. We all know his azz did. that excuse was about as lame as JT trying to stir up press.
nomerz nomerz 10 years
I think he's desperately trying to get a new audience, which is good... I loved him in *NSYNC but this Justin is a billion times better. I think he's extremely talented and I like artists that are constantly bettering themselves.

Cameron looks like she does drugs. JT is totally just trying to get press in a really lame way. And yes EP, Bush was very addicted to Blow for a while. I love how Clinton gets in trouble for "not inhaling" and Bush can do blow and we never really hear anything about it.

Re the drug use don't really care. As far as Cam if he does get h*gh she does too. They have been together (very closely) for 4 years or something they def have things in common.

How does the automatically mean cameron does it too? Couples dont have to do everything together. But then again.. she did get in trouble with stuff as a teen.. but still just because he does doesnt mean she does.
OChottie OChottie 10 years
I love Justin. I do find it strange that he would offer up the drug use info, if that's the way it happened. Here we are talking about him again though. I read a long time ago that he occasionally gets h*gh with his mom. That's odd too imo. At least he's not using blow and s*cking every c*ck in Hollywood right Lilo?
