PUBLIC OPINION > Justin Timberlake Used to Look Like a Moron
Living 2012/05/07 21:50:55
Today we have Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, but once upon a time Justin Timberlake -- now the proud recipient of six Grammys and four Emmys -- was standing where they are now. But instead of JB's skinny jeans and swoopy hair, JT was sporting one earring, a neon polo, and bleached tips. Looking back on it now, he admits he looked "like a moron" in his 'NSync days, so we asked the public if it was true.
OK, so it was actually more of an even call, but we're going to arbitrarily side with the [slight] majority and agree that JT did, indeed, look like a bit of a moron in his younger days. To be fair, it wasn't his fault. It was the whim of the studio -- and hey, it got him places, didn't it? (Though we're not sure what happened to the rest of 'NSync...) However, there were some good arguments in support of his young look. The Top Opinion punned, "We all think that of our younger daze."
Men Still Think He Looks Like a Moron
Timberlake has always been something of a lady's man. He career kind of dictated it. Unfortunately, that puts him at odds with much of the male population, as evidenced by the fact that more than two-thirds of male respondents said he looked like a moron, and based on comments, a large percentage of those think he still does. Though it's not that unfortunate, given his success.
'90s Kids Forgive Him
When we talk about JT's younger days, the 'NSync years, we're talking 1998 to 2002. It was a short span, but life-changing for the boys involved. 'NSync fans are older now, mostly women in their 20s, and that was exactly the age group that was most forgiving. Voters just 25 years older -- their parents -- were the least forgiving. It's all about perspective.
Drinkers Didn't Dig 'NSync
One opinionated demographic that doesn't really have much relation to 'NSync's success are drinkers. In fact, they were the least forgiving demographic we found. Technically, most of the former 'NSync fans should be of drinking age now, which means one of two things: Either 'NSync fans grew up to be relatively straight-edge, or drinkers just tend to be older men.
