Time to Retire: Justin Timberlake

We own his albums.  We went to his concerts.  But someone's head is getting a little too big to fit in the room, so we're over it.

Justin Timberlake has been pissing us off for a little while, but now we're ready to throw in the towel for good.  Remember when he was on that dreadful show Punk'd?  He got so pissed that someone stole his hideous Escalade truck, and it was a total joke.

Recently, he perpetuated his douche status by retiring SexyBack at a recent charity concert.  The song came out 2 years ago.  Justin, we're sorry that SexyBack was a really popular song.  We're sorry that Prince told you "I've brought sexy back in 1984, and it hasn't left since."  We're sorry that all your fans request you play that song a lot.  Wouldn't Macy Gray like to be so lucky to have a SexyBack all her own?  Take the attention, and love it.  I would kil for a #1 single.  You don't hear Bill Ray Cyrus retiring Achy Breaky Heart, do you?

And one last point, Justin also recently announced on MTV.com that he is taking a break from his solo career and wants to focus solely on producing for fellow musicians.  How gracious!  Hopefully he won't make them retire their biggest single 2 years after it came out because it annoys him.  

Get out of our dreams and our car, JT.

Dear LovesItorHatesIt

As an avid reader, and a best friend to one of the contributors, I have always read your blog with an open mind and in nearly every instance, I have agreed with you both. But here, here my friends, we draw a line in the sand. Now while I agree that retiring Sexy Back was ridiculous and that he overreacted in Punked, that's his right, right? And maybe hes taking a break from his solo career, but that doesn't make him any less great. In fact, wouldn't you agree that most amazing artists have taken brakes and made amazing comebacks? Jay-Z comes to mind...

I would follow that man to my death, and I am not even that hardcore of a fan. I did find myself dancing in the elevator to Rock Your Body today after all....

I personally think that he's just this side of complete trash ever since he left my beloved N*Sync

I love the Billy ocean reference.
