Boo Hoo, Why Is Everyone So Mean to Justin Timberlake?

justin timberlake

Justin Timberlake just wants to entertain the world! He wants to sing and dance and act and brighten your day with his luminous talent… or something! So that’s why he doesn’t get why some critics are so mean and say things like “You shouldn’t make movies EVER AGAIN!” or “Ew, your music sucks!” After all, Justin is a grown man who’s found incredible success and has more millions of dollars than I have fucks to give, so it makes sense that what random people write in magazines would get to him, right?

From GQ:

“Where did all this vitriol come from? It’s mean. And I’m not cut out for it. [Runner, Runner] didn’t do well at the box office, so I should quit? Hold on a second. If I was somebody else, you wouldn’t have said that.

“I have the number one album this week, and I shouldn’t have released it? Come on, man. You sound like a dickhead. It just shocked me because, like, you’re trade magazines. None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it.”

Yeah, but maybe you’re kinda sounding like the bigger dickhead for responding to it and being so bothered? I feel like the most obvious rule of all, the most important rule created when it comes to haters is DON’T ENGAGE! If you respond in a butthurt way, you just look corny because you show it bothered you rather than continuing to live your life and doing you because that’s what you want to do.

Come on, Justin – you’ve been in this business long enough to know better. I’m going to need you to fill out this form:

  • Filling out a Hurt Feelings Report (the original, not this lame copy) in your case is a bit of living in a glass house, particularly after some of my pithy comments. But, I thank you for not deleting them. Or at least most of them.


    Muttley Macclad.

  • I think he’s pretty talented but his songwriters are very, very weak. It’s a bit forced. His acting and particularly comedy sketches on SNL are pretty darned good, and he seems like a reasonably nice guy, and you don’t see him embroiled in any kinda scandal. I think that might be from just focusing on working hard. And that’s a really really good thing.

    • Yes, but my responses tend to be along the lines of “love my fans” – I didn’t say anything about not antagonizing people back :) Also, I don’t let what some people I’ll never meet have to say about me/my life/my character (assumptions they’re making from a CELEBRITY GOSSIP SITE) affect my day to day life. Now THAT would be sad ;)

  • You’re about a couple of years too late with the “butthurt form”. Encyclopedia Dramatica has been using it for years now. The new EB writers seem to be slow with the memes and use them when it’s not even funny.

  • I’ve never heard of a “butthurt form” but I must remember this.

    I’m also behind the times with EC, I can’t wait to see what that has.
