Justin Timberlake Hits Back at Bad ‘Variety’ Review

Justin Timberlake in 'GQ'He may be one of the biggest musical artists around these days, but Justin Timberlake still can't quite find success in Hollywood.

In a recent interview with GQ, the "TKO" singer revealed that he's not so bothered by his lack of earnings at the box office as much as he is by harsh critics. Due to the flop of his latest film Runner, Runner - which also stars Ben AffleckVariety went so far as to title an article, “Why Justin Timberlake Should Stop Acting.”

"Where did all this vitriol come from? It's mean. And I'm not cut out for it," Timberlake states. He quickly  hit back at the popular trade magazine: “The movie didn't do well at the box office, so I should quit? Hold on a second. If I was somebody else, you wouldn't have said that. I have the number one album this week, and I shouldn't have released it? Come on, man. You sound like a dickhead.... It just shocked me because, like, you're trade magazines. None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it."

Trade magazines: watch your back, for them be fightin' words!
