Justin -- Brit's Just a "Madonna Wannabe"

3/11/2008 8:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Timberlake didn't keep his stick in a box on Monday night, when he jabbed at ex-galpal Britney Spears at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony.

"The world has always been full of Madonna wannabes," said JT as he introduced the Material Mom, an inductee, reports Us. "I might have even dated a couple." Day-um. He also zinged, "She has still found time to kiss someone I may or may not have publicly kissed myself while I was in the audience. Of course you know I was talking about Sean Penn."

Jessica –- I'm So NOT High-Maintenance


Jessica Simpson is flogging reports that her trip to Kuwait to visit the troops is a big production.

Her rep tells People that Jess flew commercial and that she is in fact staying in the barracks with the troops. What's more, she denies that her trip is more of a fly-by than an actual visit: "She's been with the troops all day. She's had her meals with them."

As for reports that she had a full-scale beauty battalion with her, the rep says that super-stylist Ken Paves isn't with Jess, and that she has "significantly scaled back her entourage."

Party Favors: Clooney's Gal Wants to Get More Serious ... Kid Rock to Rock That Waffle House ... So Raisin: Raven's Tour to be Big Sleepover


George Clooney's girlfriend Sarah Larson – no, they're NOT engaged – says that she wants to get more "serious about modeling," according to Vegas Confidential, before delving deeper into her relationship with George. ... Kid Rock will be playing the Waffle House where he was arrested for battery after a fight last October – not for his supper, but for charity, says the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. ... Look out, Miley: Raven-Symone's big 55-city tour will be a pajama-party-themed show, with the audience encouraged to come in pajamas. This can't end well.

It takes someone with NO class to make comments about people who are mentally ill and trying to get well. I used to like Timberlake but, in the past 2 years or so, he has become an arrogant putz. I will never understand these people who make it big and forget how to be gracious and thankful for what they have (whether in Hollyweird or the Sports World). Madonna should have given him a smack down for that comment. But, she is as arrogant and stupid as Justin. Why do we buy their crap anyway? LOL

According to People.com, Ken Paves was not with Jess, but she still had a hairstylist and a makeup person. Yes, that is scaling down considerably (ha!) Angelina Jolie does not have ANY entourage with her when she goes on her humanitarian missions, wears no makeup and sleeps in tents or wherever. To me, she is truly caring and serious about her visits. It is not merely a publicity trip like Jessica is doing. So please, quit praising her for being there. Shes there to generate some positive press after the Tony Romo/Cowboys fans fiasco, and to promote her lousy upcoming movie, and country record. Her songs were not even current; she sang hits from when she was still married to Nick! Shes a hasbeen. If she wasn't all over the place, and didn't have Papa Joe contacting the paps whenever she breathes, I may take her more seriously. Her motives are not altruistic, please!!!!!

I watched the video of what Justin said. And OMG! It IS all about him! What an "hole!

And just what is up with Madonnas HAIR?
It really makes her look older than she is.
Is that what happens to you when you get older? Even is your a Star you stop giving a poop!

She looks great    

Timberlake is a no-talent wannabe who has no class.

First, it is unseemly to publicly discuss a private relationship.

Second, Timberlake is hardly the pinnacle of innovation or talent.

Third, his comment is vulgarly timed.

Justin's never been a gentleman so this comes as no surprise.

What the hell is wrong with him?!

When someone is mentally ill, is being staled by thousands of people a day, loses her kids and then desperately attempts and fails at a music comeback, you do not take jabs at her being a wanna-be.

He claims to care about her, and then he bashes her in front of thousands of people?

I take this comment for what it is - he wanted publicity.

Justin doesn't want to talk about her, so he should stop making these vague insulting comments about her. Justin is his own wannabe, he should just shut up.

Britneys never been anything close to a lady so anything she does doesn't come as a surprise.

Justin is so arrogant and full of himself. He and Britney broke up years ago and he needs to get over it. He has no class taking jibes at her when she's down.

Timberlake is such a loser. Didn't his mommy ever teach him any manners? He acted like a mean, petulant child. Oh yeah, Timberlake, you are sooo cool, making fun of someone who's struggling with a mental illness. But who really has the problem here, Timber? Britney is known for being kind and gracious. You're making a name for yourself as a useless, talentless putz. A nasty, self-obsessed spirit like yours--that's something beyond medical help. Your karma is all bad and it is catching up with you.

Wannabe, Justin? You're the wannabe. It must scare you. You and your bad Michael Jackson imitations. People are getting tired of you. My nephew's high school friends make fun of you. He says all the kids in his school think you suck. Good luck, aging Disney boy.

I thought Justin was more mature. The comments were not funny.

anything goes    

I just finished watching Justin's speech, and I thought it was well-spoken, charming and funny. He said a lot of nice things about Madonna's career and threw in a few little jabs that I'm certain were cleared by her first. The reference he made to dating a few Madonna-wannabe's may not have been in the greatest taste, but he cringed when he said it and probably expected this kinda reaction. However, I am SICK of all the Britney coverage....get over it ALL OF YOU! You guys were tearing her up constantly until she was "diagnosed as bipolar" Now, you're all "you go girl" and "oh Poor Britney".....Her diagnosis has not changed my opinion of her...but it is popular news right now, and Justin put his time in with her, so why shouldn't he have the right to comment? He has more right than anyone on TMZ, so lay off.
