Justin Timberlake Clarifies 'NSYNC Better Than One Direction' Comment


JT says his answer to a question on a pie-eating contest between the two groups was taken out of context.

After the media went abuzz with reports that he dissed current popular boyband One Direction, Justin Timberlake has denied saying that he and his band NSYNC were better than the British-Irish heartthrobs. The MTV Video Vanguard Award recipient said his statement was taken out of context and that he was actually responding to a question on which group would win a pie-eating contest.

"I thought the question was about a pie eating contest. My bad. #newsworthy," tweeted the "Take Back the Night" singer on September 1. He was previously quoted as saying, "I have not seen them on stage, but I'd be willing to say that we're better than them," then adding, "I've seen them a couple times and I like those guys."

One Direction and NSYNC came under one roof last August 25 in Brooklyn's Barclays Center for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Timberlake performed with his former band mates, doing a short medley of their hits "Girlfriend" and "Bye Bye Bye" before he was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Moonman.

The performance sparked speculations of a reunion tour, but the hopes of their loyal followers easily got crushed by member Lance Bass. "It would be lovely to do it, but we've got nothing planned. It's simply not part of the conversation right now. We just focused on that one performance," Bass said.
