Justin Timberlake, The Scholar

I don’t expect my pop stars to be some kind of “word geniuses” and stuff, because I know full well that they were manufactured by Disney for the sole puporse of entertaining the populace with their singin’ and dancin’.  But it seems like they should have at least been programmed to avoid any kind of casual talking or divulging of “opinions” to major newspapers and/or magazines seeing as how they’re not capable of doing so without sounding like total idiots.  Justin Timberlake just proves my point, with the following quotes (gathered by US Weekly’s blog) from his interview with Vanity Fair:

On dating Spears:
“I dated Britney half my life, but I don’t’ know that person anymore. I’m not sure I knew her before. If I was writing an article about her, I would not be able to fight the urge to write every dirty thing about her.”

On his ’80s-inspired album, Future Sex/Love Sounds:
“I wanted it to look to a time when everything was really sexy. Maybe everybody was coked up, but who cares? It was hot. It was all about sex.”

On smoking weed:
“I remember the first time it was reported that I smoked pot. I was like, y’all don’t? that’s why I sort of respect Kate Moss. I think you lose once you start trying to analyze what people like. So I’m like, ‘I hope you like how I live, but if you don’t, you don’t.”
