Justin Bieber upset with Timberlake comparison

July 3, 2012 - Washington

Justin Bieber hung up on a radio show host after his 'Boyfriend' song was compared to Justin Timberlake's music.

The 18-year-old singer seemed to be annoyed that the 'Mojo in the Morning' presenter had mentioned how similar the style of his track 'Boyfriend' was to the music of Timberlake's - who had a hit as part of the boy band 'N Sync with 'Girlfriend'.

"Man, that's crazy because our voices sound nothing alike. I mean, I'm not trying to sound like anyone. Saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment," Bieber responded.

"I think if you were to say I heard some Justin Timberlake-esque things in your sound I would take that as a compliment," he said.

The teen star then went on to mirror a comment his manager Scooter Braun had recently made about the frequent comparison between the two.

"Justin Timberlake is definitely really talented and is similar because he's white and he's singing pop, R and B," the 'Baby' singer said.

"I think we both have the type of edge. I definitely want to have my own lane and not be compared. But I think he is super, super-talented," he said.
