Justin Timberlake is kind of a jerk.
From Faded Youth Blog:
Justin Timberlake wants everyone to know that he does not love Jessica Biel. In a rather candid interview with London’s Daily Mirror, JT calls Jess “a very dear friend,” but when asked who the love of his life is, he reveals, “I haven’t met her yet.”
THEN he said that although Jess did visit him on part of his European tour, it wasn’t at his request. “She truly insisted that she came with me on tour. I don’t know how to say no to a pretty face. But it wasn’t really a good idea,” Justin admits. “This time I’m putting the machine before everything else. Jessica met up with me in Manchester, but for Paris I told her categorically no. This tour is very important for me. I’m doing it really seriously so there’s no question of playing sweethearts!”
He also thinks he’s in the “totally irresistible” category: “I defy a girl not to fall for me if I’m on a surfboard or snowboarding,” he challenged. “It’s my secret weapon if a girl resists me.”
I think that’s rude, and I think Jessica Biel should kick him in the shins next time she sees him. Didn’t he do the same sort of thing to Britney back in the day? Like, say something on a radio show? I can’t remember the details.
It’s also one thing to be confident, but quite another to be a pompous narcissist. Then again, Jessica Biel was the actress who said, “I hope all my new work will help producers in getting past my hotness.”
May their egos live happily ever after.
