In the running for "Stupidest brainwaves ever emitted"
As reported by "The afternoon kicked off on a low point for Timberlake when a concertgoer's sign questioning the singer's sexuality made it to the jumbotrons for about 15 seconds. Timberlake took to the stage with an obvious awareness of audience cynicism, beginning his set with a small attempt to mitigate the crowd's frustration: 'This will be over before you know it.' During his mini-set of "Cry Me a River," "Senorita" and "Rock Your Body," Justin gracefully dodged water bottles flung by anti-pop audience members, and winced slightly at their less than playful jeers. After quietly thanking the city of Toronto for generally being welcoming to him and his tour crew, Timberlake left the stage to make way for more crowd-pleasing acts including the Guess Who, Rush, AC/DC and headliners the Rolling Stones."
Now why...why oh why would any manager, concert planner, or anyone else who is responsible for this *ever* think that fans of bands like Rush, AC/DC and the Stones would be fans of Justin Timberlake?? Hello? It's like putting Kenny G on stage with Ozzy. It doesn't work and the fans don't want to see it.
