In an interview with a webzine, Nick Carter said, on hating and constantly getting compared with Justin Timberlake “No, I don’t hate him. Musicwise,I think, honestly, he wants to do R&B and I want to do rock.”
Nick added “We both have something to prove. He’s got more going for him at the moment, but that’s okay. I want to sweat. I don’t want it to be easy. I don’t want people to necessarily like me in the beginning. I like being the underdog.”
Justin also spoke up saying “I’m totally indifferent about that whole situation. I’m indifferent about him. Obviously, I’ve answered so many questions about my personal life. I wish him the best. As far as anybody comparing the two of us at this point, I feel like it’s kind of lazy. You can tell that we’re two totally different artists. It’s like comparing Coldplay to The Vines.”
Personally, I’ve always found that both Justin Timberlake and Nick Carter can’t seem to stand each other’s guts. And this was way back when they first burst onto the scenes with their groups, N’Sync and the Backstreet Boys respectively. They were like the baby of the groups and I guess the press loved comparing them and making it seem like they hate each other and all. I think that kind of stuck.
Nick Carter’s next single is called ‘Do I Have To Cry For You’ and it might be re-recorded in Spanish.
