There was a time when I would ride the bus home with my fellow peers chanting, “New Kids Suck!”. We would do this for 10 minutes at a time. Later, in school, we’d make fun of any pop star as the early 90’s was full of them, and there were no shortage of targets. Pop culture was a dangerous world combined with middle and high school; you had to wade through the bs, grab hold of someone you thought was cool, and prayed to God they weren’t in the media for something that would damage their rep… only way to survive in school.
This carried on into adulthood. A lot of pop music made me sick, specially the processed boy bands.
Then one day, my ex-manager took me upstairs and showed me this DVD he had of N’Sync in concert. Justin Timberlake came on stage, and started beatboxing with this drummer. All he had was his mouth, his moves, and a stadium full of jailbait. He broke it the %&#$ down. At that moment, I had mad respect for Mr. Timberlake.
I missed the MTV Movie Awards this year, but courtesy of my man Alex from work, I saw this, and respect was gained again.
