The rising pop star is building up his name with 3 movies in the works and his anticipated album “Half Life” will be in stores early 2005, but the pressure he might be feeling is from rivals, pop superstars Usher Raymond and Justin Timberlake.
The pop singer was interviewed by the Buzz 99.3 in the states, when asked if he feels he can be the next Usher or Justin he replied saying “I’m not Usher, and I’m not Justin Timberlake, nor are they Eric West, we all are different artist, and it’s unfair to compare us to each other.”
He went on to say, “I respect both Justin and Usher as artist, and congratulate them on their success, but as an artist, I have to spend time worrying about my music and putting out something that my audience will appreciate and not worry about what Justin and Usher are doing, at the end of the day I have to please myself and my fans, that matters more than Christina VS Britney, Janet VS Madonna, Justin VS Usher”.
Fans from TimberlakeStyle.com spoke out about the comparison.
mrsjt said, “Eric West? He’s cute but does he really have such an adoring fanbase? Is he even anything like Justin? I am so sick and tired of the comparison crap.”
Anne stated, “Eric West is very talented!! I think since he is young and doing pop/r&b the media will compare him to JT [Justin Timberlake] and Usher. It’s going to happen with all the new artist who are young, male and cute.”
