Dang. Alicia has been teaming up recently with artists that I don't like - Eminem and now Justin Timberlake.

Justin Timberlake says he "stumbled through" the post-Super Bowl bruhaha. There is a video behind the source link.

source

"I stumbled through it ... to be quite honest, I had my wires crossed," Timberlake said of the 2004 wardrobe malfunction, where he removed a portion of Jackson's clothing, revealing her exposed breast.

"It's just something that you have to look back on and go, 'OK, you can't change what's happened, but you can move forward and learn from it ... It's just one of those things where you go, like, 'Yeah, what do you want me to say?' We're not going to do that again."

Lowe asked whether he and Jackson took time to "resolve the situation" and "make peace of the whole thing" after the wardrobe malfunction. "Absolutely," the singer said, flatly. "I don't know that a lot of people know that. I don't think it's my job to do that because you value the relationships that you do have with people."

The first part of Timberlake's interview with Lowe will air Thursday, January 18th at 1 p.m. EST on Beats 1. Timberlake recently released a behind-the-scenes video documentary about making his upcoming LP, Man of the Woods. This year, he will become the first artist to perform three Super Bowl halftime shows.




Give the things we've talked about in this thread, it's good to hear that they have resolved the bad blood between them. I am still hopeful that she'll show up somehow at this show.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Justin Timberlake “made peace” with Janet Jackson...?
[​IMG] Posted by Lainey 12: AM January 17, 2018 http://www.laineygossip.c...dent/48917

This is the headline you will read all day and probably tomorrow. That, after leaving Janet Jackson for dead after the Super Bowl in 2004, Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson actually “made peace”. Those aren’t the words that come of out his mouth though. Those are the words that Zane Lowe put in his mouth, to which he replies, “Absolutely”. And then he goes on to say that:

“And I don’t know that a lot of people know that. I don’t think it’s my job to do that because you value the relationships that you do have with people.”

So, like, it was just a secret that he kept, you know? Out of respect for Janet, he didn’t want to go around talking about how they worked it out. OUT OF RESPECT FOR JANET.

Him.

Justin Timberlake.

Respect Janet?

This f-cking guy.
Here. Watch. And then we’ll sh-t on him some more.

How do you “make peace” with someone while watching them get blacklisted, get maligned, their career in the dump for years, as you go on to win awards and make more money? Where is the peace? At no point did Justin Timberlake, when Janet Jackson went from being one of the top entertainers in the business to showbiz pariah, step up and stand in solidarity. Solidarity is peace. Selfishness is not peace.

And to suggest that it happened but that he never revealed it publicly because he “values the relationships” he has with people is not just insulting, what’s worse is that he’s done it again – once again he’s hung her out to dry. Because if Janet comes out to challenge his revisionist version of the story and call him a liar, she’s the one whose looking for a fight. She’s the angry black woman looking for a fight. She’s the angry black woman looking to pick a fight with the soft-spoken Make America Great Again Man Of The Woods sitting in the studio during an interview spewing platitude after platitude for the MiniVan Majority.

“You can’t change what’s happened but you can move forward and learn from it” – that’s a platitude and that’s how Justin Timberlake speaks. It means nothing. Jack sh-t. Because what, exactly, did he learn?

Learning, in this case, would be an acknowledgment: I failed her, I was more concerned for myself, I let her eat most if not all the blame, and, looking back, and understanding, especially historically, how women, and black women in particular are not treated equally, I leaned into my privilege – and this is not OK.

Which… is not at all what he said. All he does is mention his “stumbles”? STUMBLES?

Stumbling is reading out the wrong name on an envelope. What he did wasn’t a stumble, it was an abandonment and then an exploitation. A complete betrayal. Justin Timberlake PROFITED from that situation. You can’t write that off by simply calling it a stumble.

But they’ll let him, won’t they?

Goddamn it, they always do. He always, always floats through. Already he’s floating. Already the way they’re telling this story is HIS version of the story – and not hers. Already and again, Justin Timberlake is owning and controlling the narrative about what happened between him and Janet. As he has done from the very beginning. And now that his version is out there, whatever she has to say will either be a forced corroboration or yet ANOTHER risk SHE will have to assume because he f-cking put her there. Where’s the respect and the “valuing of relationships” when you’re always the one who gets to dictate the relationship?

Enough, Timberlake https://www.laineygossip....ance/48929

Kathleen Posted by Kathleen 12: AM January 19, 2018

Earlier today, I wrote that Justin Timberlake must be actively trying to piss off anyone... attention. It has to be intentional, right? He can't be THIS much of an oblivious, self-serving, egotistical vulture, right? Except that he is. There is no other explanation for his new music video. None.

JT just dropped the visual for his second Man of the Woods single called Supplies and it is an epic display of ignorance. Everyone I know who has watched Supplies has had the same reaction: what did I just watch? This is not one of those “I watched it so you don’t have to” posts. I want you to share in my misery and confusion. Go ahead and meet me on the other side.

The kid yelling, “YOU’RE STILL ASLEEP, WAKE UP” at the end is me. That kid is me yelling at JT’s face. The next time Justin Timberlake releases a new video, can we just have a GIF of this kid saying “we’re good” on loop?

The video appears to be Justin Timberlake's attempt at a dystopian Black Mirror knock off. The dystopian music video has been done so often it's basically a cliche. Every artist has their own post-apocalyptic mini movie (Swift’s Ready For It, Spears’ Till The World Ends and Rihanna’s Disturbia, just to name a few).

That's not the issue here. The issue is the video's references to current social movements like Black Lives Matter and #MeToo. In the clip, we see JT watching the news on various televisions depicting images of Harvey Weinstein, Trump’s face covered by an End Racism Now sign, a glimpse of “We Can’t Breathe” and people holding up #MeToo signs. Oh, Justin Timberlake has decided to use the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements to sell albums? Fine. If he's going to co-opt important social conversations for his music videos, he is opening himself up to be questioned and to be challenged on where he stands in said conversations. So, I have questions: where was Justin Timberlake's conviction for black lives when a black woman's career was torpedoed directly because of his actions and inaction in the years after Nipplegate? #NeverForget. Where was Justin Timberlake's power and privilege every time an unarmed black man was shot by police and he was silent?

I'm not done. How does Justin Timberlake get to profit off of #MeToo when he has yet to denounce Woody Allen or even had to answer a f-cking question about Woody Allen? Justin Timberlake can't get mad at these questions or challenges anymore because he just made a music video portraying himself as the Woke Bae saviour of 2018. Pitchfork put it best:

Justin Timberlake’s wok...t save us.

I didn’t think an artist trying and failing to be political could get any more embarrassing than Katy Perry’s “purposeful pop” but Justin Timberlake just proved that it can. It really can.

Oh but at least he's trying to put out a positive message, people will say. At least he's bringing awareness to these movements, they'll add. Justin Timberlake is not the enemy here, his fans will argue. F-ck that. JT does not get a cookie for doing the bare minimum of acknowledging injustice in the world… in a music video he released to promote his album. Let’s not get it twisted – he is jumping on a trend. It is cool to be socially aware. This video is essentially JT’s version of the Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad. So no, Justin Timberlake does not get a pass for repeatedly undermining Jessica Biel’s accomplishments because he wore a Time’s Up pin. He does not get to skate by on a career of cultural appropriation while continually dismissing the critiques of the very people whose culture he scavenged.

He has gotten away with this sh-t for too long. I know this because I let him get away with it by *shudder* being a fan for far too long. But not today, Timberlake. This nonsensical, hollow, tone-deaf, piece of trash video masquerading as a sexy rebellious art piece is ENOUGH.

Finally, here’s my super articulate, high-brow, serious music critic review of Supplies, the song: I heard it for the first time with this bullsh-t video so I f-cking hate it based on principle but also, my official hot take is that it’s f-cking stupid.

First of all that beginning is a rip off a million other artists who have done that TV sets showing the world, Springsteen did it 25 years ago, Bill Joel, also the side group MAX Q and also Inxs did it twice. You see the thing that people don't get is this is why democrats and liberals always lose fucking elections. The elite having opinions when their own careers and behavior is questioned. Now I am far from being a supporter of this current president or anything he says or most of his base of followers, but people like Timberlake are not helping us with elections by all of a sudden being concerned about women's rights and racial equality. People like Timberlake and Katy Perry and others think they are fucking BONO and they are not, you have to put the work in with your views and not just have the views when shit goes down.

Let's see:




Justified - 10M

FutureSex/LoveSounds- 10M

20/20 Experience - 6M

(Global figures)


Hmmm, those look like big numbers to me.

That's still very low. The first album was released when everyone was selling 15+ million

I'm fairly certain those figures are low on 20/20 Experience - think the first disc alone sold 7m+.

I recall that he was the biggest selling artist in the world in 2013. And his first 2 albums are just about inside the Top 40 biggest sellers this century.

My question is why do artists insist on pushing these tired illuminati visuals?

Is the video really THAT serious? LOL. No it is not. I spent more time reading that review than the actual video.
The video was stylish and well made....it looked like a sort of anti illuminati video...then Justin goes Mad Max in the end. Actually this review angered me how serious they took the video more than the video itself. Jeez it was not that serious at all lol.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy
