So I guess Gibson is not the only Bigot?

NEW YORK (AP) - Justin Timberlake backtracked from criticism of "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks after telling Fashion Rocks magazine the 29-year-old soul singer "can't carry a tune in a bucket."

"I have a strange relationship with that show," Timberlake tells the magazine in an interview. "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?"

Timberlake, a member of boy band 'N Sync who is now pursuing a solo career, also said: "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."

Liz Morentin, a representative for Hicks' record label, RCA, declined to comment Thursday.

Ken Sunshine, Timberlake's representative, said the 25-year-old singer's comments "were taken completely out of context."

"He has tremendous affection for Taylor Hicks' success," Sunshine told The Associated Press on Thursday. "He would never say anything that personal about somebody he's never met. He only wishes him the best."

Timberlake's second solo album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," is set for release Sept. 12. "Sexyback," his first single from the CD, began playing on U.S. radio outlets last month.

"I wanted (the album) to look to a time when everything was really sexy," he says. "Maybe everybody was coked up, but who cares? It was hot. It was all about sex."


Shame on You Mr. Timberlake.

seems more like a social commentary than being a bigot. If he was gay and public about it he probably wouldn't have received so many votes. It's probably true.

What do you not get? One said, "Jews are the reasons for all the wars in this world."

And one said basically that if you come out of the closet all those fans he has back in Mississippi will change their tune.

How is this the same?

Justin, just had an old bandmate and friend come out of the closet. He probably knows how hard it is for someone to come out in the pop industry.

he's using sarcasm. Or he's mocking those people who would actually say that.

The fact that he said "It's just too much pressure" shoud tell you that. ( After all his former bandmate has gone through recently)

see: lance bass thread.

Your saying JT is using Sarcasm, but he wasn't even drunk like Gibson.

Let's spell this out.

Justin Timberlake does not hate gay people. He's making the point that if Hicks was discovered to be gay that there would be people would not like him because of it.
