I don't recall Justin using the word "tuchus" in SexyBack, but I also don't recall the following lyrics: "My crack is so fierce/Maybe I should get it pierced/ It rocks I can't stop it/It's like an extra pocket..."
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.
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 read more
The long awaited JT single is out and I could have waited longer. SexyBack is the first song off his new album and so far I am not liking the new sound. You can barely tell it's him singing. Take a listen here.
TMZ has a video clip of JT, Cammie and Drew in Paris.
UPDATE: listen here for a much clearer version which sounds better but still not my favorite JT song.
