Justin Timberlake Video to Promote the Grammys

Justin Timberlake — Cocky or Cool?

Justin Timberlake isn't known for keeping his opinions to himself, but lately some of his comments have seemed even more self-assured than usual. He's planning on attending this year's Grammys, despite earlier saying he felt used and wouldn't return to them. In fact, to help promote the event, he sat with Katie Couric for a pre-awards show interview. There's no question that he's a talented performer, but his quick responses and tone of voice with Katie have us wondering if his head hasn't gotten a little too big. So, tell us — do you think Justin Timberlake is cocky or cool?

we all lv him in the uk...he's down to earth, funny and dosn't take himself too seriously, hes up for a laugh but he understands good music and how to make it....he must have something he's still around...i dont think he seemed cocky at all in that video.....i think he might be misunderstood.

I don't think that he's sexy at all due to his cockyness. It totally turns me off.

I've always thought he was a cock-, I mean cocky.

He reminds me of Kanye West. I love how sometimes he says he is from "Shelby Forest" TN. Shelby Forest is a state park dude. You never lived there. You're from Memphis! Get over it.

Justin Timberlake has always had an ego.

i didn't think he was that cocky in that particular interview, but i've definitely noticed that a little bit lately in what i've seen him in...but seriously, if i was him i probably would be, too. not saying it's a good thing, but just saying that i can imagine that if you're that successful and talented, your ego is going to grow a bit...

Actually, he looks a little troubled.

Wow. This site is extremely unkind to anyone with Disney ties or those who love Disney productions. I'll keep that in mind so I don't take the text to seriously.

He was far from cocky ,he was his usual funny and quick witty self. His answers were honest and straight to the point.

I never liked him and always thought he comes across as arrogant. Having said that, I don't think he was cocky in this interview

This just didn't come off cocky to me at all. I think this is the way most of his interviews go. He is energetic and enthusiastic. Also, the interview seems a little chopped up, even Katie's questions seemed abrupt.

well, I don't think he was 'cocky' per se, just self assured and not modest at all. Zero modesty and confidence does not a cocky person make. However, you could tell that Katie was a little taken back by his quick, strong responses. LOL

Well said HaterTot! I agree completely. Has Timberlake displayed arrogance in past interviews? Sure. But if folks are inferring cockiness based on this video clip then I have to scratch my head and say... "Huh?" It's almost as if people are trying really hard to detect arrogance where there isn't any. Reaching is what I'd call it.

I didn't watch this specific interview, because he's always been very cocky to me, and I really can't stand to listen to him. He's very full of himself...granted he's talented, but he's always rubbed me the wrong way with how he responds to things

Other. I didn't think he was cocky but like cfp, I didn't like what the "cool" choice included.
