A few weeks ago when a radio DJ compared Justin Bieber to the original Justin – as in Timberlake — the Biebs was not happy. We, personally, would totally take that as a compliment, but JB certainly did not, retorting to the interviewer with:
“Man, that’s crazy because our voices sound nothing alike. I mean, I’m not trying to sound like anyone.”
And to that we say maybe he wasn’t trying, per say, but he sounds almost identical anyway. All you need for proof is this mashup of Justin’s “Boyfriend” and *NSYNC’s (remember them? #goodtimes) “Girlfriend.” The songs are so similar it’s scary, and even the music videos have the same kinda vibe, where the guys are driving in convertibles and chillin’ with hot chicks. Oh, the life of a pop star.
Watch the video below to see what we mean, then be sure to weigh in and tell us if you hear the similarities, too:
Do you think “Boyfriend” and “Girlfriend” sound alike? Who’s more talented, JB or JT?
