Just who is UK’s equivalent of Justin Timberlake?
A debate has been sparked and many are saying that if all go well, then Abs may very well be it.
Said one fan, “Justin bores me. Abs is better than the Trousersnake. How Justin has had so much success in the UK confuses me?! He was only ever famous as Britney’s boyfriend. His first single wasn’t a very strong song.”
And how does Abs feel being compared to Justin?
“Everything he does turns to gold,” he told a webzine. “He can’t do anything wrong. I’d love to have worked with the Neptunes like him, but people would just say that I was trying to be like Justin. But Justin does what Justin does and he does it well. I don’t look at people like him and wannabe like them. I do my own thing. I’ll just go off and do my thing and hope people like it.”
Well, luckily for Abs, people are loving and raving about his new single ‘Stop Sign’. It’s out in stores already so get one now.
Capital FM in London recently chatted with former Five star Abs Breen and asked him what led to the group splitting up and what he’s been doing since then.
“It was a bit of a shock when the band split” he said. “I got a phone call from our manager who said ‘Don’t bother turning up for work tomorrow since you know, no one else is'”.
“And for two months I did nothing apart from watching telly, shows like ‘Tricia’, soaps, game shows and eating my favourite, Coco Pops. I was basically a typical man. A couch potato, you know. Then some producers I’d worked with in Five contacted me and suggested I work with them again, which was lucky because I had only started getting bored and wanted something to do, desperately.”
Meanwhile, The Sun reports former Five star Abs Breen is now dating Heidi Range of the Sugababes. “She’s really nice. I get on great with her.” Abs told the reporters there. “I met her in a club when she had just joined Sugababes. A few months later we bumped into each other again and just hit it off.”
