First of all, Taylor may not have the astounding talent of... oh, I don't know... Joey Fatone or Chris Kirpatrick* but he certainly can carry a tune. Second of all, what is he talking about with this whole gay thing? Shut up, Justin.
“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,” Timberlake told Fashion Rocks, a supplement of Vanity Fair. Timberlake also thinks that Hicks’ fame is fragile. “If [Hicks] has any skeletons whatsoever, if God forbid, he’s gay, and if all these people in Mississippi who votedfor him are like [then he takes on a thick southern accent], ‘Oh my god, I voted for a queer!’ It’s just too much pressure.”
He has similar niceties to say about American Idol itself:
“I have a strange relationship with that show. I despise it, yet I’m completely fascinated.”You're right, Justin. If only Idol could live up to the standards set by The Mickey Mouse Club.
