Justin Timberlake denies making disparaging Taylor Hicks comments
UPI News Service, 08/17/2006
Pop singer Justin Timberlake said that Taylor Hicks can't hold a tune and better not be gay but his publicist claims that these comments were taken wrong.
"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 Magazine about Hicks, winner of the most recent edition of Fox's "American Idol."
"If he has any skeletons whatsoever -- if, God forbid, he's gay -- and all these people in Mississippi who voted for him are like 'Oh, my God, I voted for a queer!' It's just too much pressure," said Timberlake.
