Justin Timberlake has contributed some cool stuff to pop music, I guess, and all the young, hip folks seem to like him. I think he’s got some good songs, but he’s no messiah. Still, MTV has decided to honour him with their Michael Jackson ‘Video Vanguard’ award during next Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, which is going to turn parts of my borough into an obnoxious deathtrap. Residents of Brooklyn, you’ll need to hit up the Brooklyn Junction Target instead of the Atlantic Center… unless of course you’re going purposely in hopes of catching a glimpse of Selena Gomez‘s butt or whatever people wait outside events for.
Anyway, Justin! He’ll join such luminaries as Britney Spears, Madonna, Beastie Boys, REM, David Bowie, Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones in receiving the award, which is a pretty big deal. He’ll also be performing that night, as will Katy Perry (LUV U, GURL), Lady Blah-Blah, Miley Cyrus and Yeezus himself. Should be a fun evening.
For the record, Justin has already won 14 VMAs during his career. Do you think he deserves such a prestigious accolade, though?
