Justin Timberlake defends expletive-filled London show


Justin Timberlake has defended his expletive-filled London show last week, insisting the crowd was "age appropriate," and his swearing was "all in good fun."

The singer performed at the BRIT Awards in the British capital on Wednesday night, before heading over to the Forum venue in nearby Kentish Town for his own show. Timberlake peppered his set with curse words, but insists he didn't mean to offend concertgoers with his bad language.

When asked about his cursing during an interview with Britain's Capital FM, the star explains, "I swore a lot, every club show we do is age appropriate ... I'm 32 years old, sweetheart. Nobody's going to tell me anything ... It's all in good fun. This is my analogy, it's like dressing for the weather. If you are going to play at the Forum, it's a proper rock 'n' roll venue ... I'm not a rock 'n' roll star, but we're gonna put on my version of a rock 'n' roll show. And it's 18 and up."

JT ignore the f***ing morons. Nothing wrong with swearing at an ADULT show.  People who berate your use of profanity are either holy rollers trying to force thier morals down everyones throat or thier so unhappy in thier own lives that they project it on to who evers handy, to make themselves feel better.  Hell in the Bible cant even go to the doctors without having the bloody doc and his PAs soving religion down your throat and insisting on praying for you. 


JT word of advice....ROCK THE FUC* ON!!!!!

Why not show some class and think up some new words.  JT seems like a reasonably intelligent person, so he ought to be able to expand his vocabulary a bit and learn some words that he doesn't end up apologizing for.  Easy.

Low class is right. Up there on the stage talking like an undisciplined idiot with no proper upbringing.  If he hadn't been in a boy band, he would have been in a gang.  I have always seen him as a thug.  If you entertain the people and are up there in the spotlight, act like you actually have a brain.  Show some decency and respect.  With "national censorship" gone out the window, then it falls to self-censorship.  Grow up Justin.
