For someone who once sported hair that looked like you could purchase it for 99 cents at the Big Y, Justin Timberlake has a lot of opinions on what people should do with their lives. Case in point – his views on recording artists doing those Las Vegas residencies. You know, when a pop star sets up shop at a casino for a couple of years and rakes in the chips?
During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio this week (via E!), Justin was asked if he’d ever do one. While looking like an enterprising journalist posing as a homeless person for a story, his ass lied and said no just like his ass lied when he said he and Janet Jackson are cool now. Miss Janet if you a goddamn liar!
Justin sort of/kind of shaded his ex Britney Spears, as well as Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, and poor Toni Braxton when he derided Vegas residencies as being for AARP members. They’ve all done the casino thing.
“I mean I wouldn’t rule it out if it was something that was different,” Timberlake told Lowe. “I definitely don’t…you know… [laughs]…it feels like…”
“…a retirement option?” Lowe asked.
Timberlake continued, “…you’re planning your retirement. You know what I mean? So for some reason that feels like scary to me.”
You really going to do your famous ex Britney (and poor Toni Braxton) like that, Justin? Those residencies do crazy money, of which future Las Vegas mainstays like Lady Gaga and the Backstreet Boys must be fully aware.
Man of the Woods Justin’s just being a snot. You know when the money eventually dries up or he needs another jet, he’ll be on stage at Circus Circus done up as a clown and belting out a cheesy lounge version of “Bye Bye Bye.”
