Justin Timberlake Can't Sleep At Night

See also

J.T.’s got some bags under his eyes lately and I think I know why. All the way back in March, he seemed poised to capture the public’s imagination with The Song Of The Summer. But after scoring the best first-week sales of his career with The 20/20 Experience, Timberlake’s summer single, “Take Back The Night” took a backseat to Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” The same Robin Thicke who got a haircut and a tailored suit the day Future Sex/Love Sounds dropped. It would seem that Robin Thicke walked around doing his best Justin Timberlake impression for the last five years and it finally paid off. For a while, it even appeared as though he was doing Justin Timberlake better than Justin Timberlake. But while he seems satisfied to ride off into the sunset, perfectly happy with the likelihood of having only one hit song, the entire world thinking he's a creep and being sued by Marvin Gaye's family, Timberlake seems destined for more public complaining along the lines of a recent GQ interview in which he was quoted as saying he feels like a bunch of people (specifically the press) "just took a shit on my face." In the same interview he went on to say that the bad press "just shocked me because, like, your trade magazines. None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it." While there is some truth in what Timberlake said, I don't feel too bad for him even though critics didn't like The 20/20 Experience Part Two and some his movies. And you know what? He shouldn't care either. And if the trade magazine's opinions don't count when there's a bad review, why do they count so much when there's a good review? Things could always be worse. At least Marvin Gaye's family isn't suing you and your going to be able to afford those snazzy three piece suits forever. So get some rest man. You survived the summer of Robin Thicke. For that matter, we all did.
