Justin Timberlake is closest. I’m not saying that he will EVER EVER EVER be him. A lot of people seem to think that when others “compare” artists. But Justin Timblerlake appeals to many different genre. Chris seems to be more “hip-hop” and less pop. Justin’s voice is more similar. Chris sounds like he whines. Dancing, I’d say they’re about even.
And Justin’s career is more similar to Michaels as well. Both in a band. Both went solo. Both have a VERY successful solo career. I think Justin is also more innovative.
Oh and Justin and Michael don’t beat the shit out of women.
very well put. : )
