PRINCE TO JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE: SEXY NEVER LEFT
It looks like a feud actually IS starting to bubble between Justin Timberlake and Prince.
Our clever colleague, CJ, who writes for the Star Tribune in Minneapolis, says SOME people think Justin’s new CD apes Prince’s style. At an Emmys party Prince announced “For whoever is claiming that they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!” And who can forget Justin at the Golden Globes, squatting in front of the microphone to imitate his tiny rival. Looks like Justin really RESENTS those comparisons between his CD and Prince’s music. He and Nelly Furtado came out with the diss song “Give it to Me” in which he mocks Prince’s mumbling, and jokes “We missed you on the charts last week.” (Justin’s CD is outselling Prince’s 3121 by a MILE. ) The ball is in Prince’s court.
