Dupri on Justin, Xscape on Dupri


Jermaine Dupri’s new book is causing an uproar in some circles. (why have I not received a copy of this book… do I have to go out and BUY it – I’m having a fake, I think I’m a celebrity temper tantrum). Anywhoo, in the book Dupri is pissed at Justin Timberlake for not defending Janet during the Superbowl fiasco and he states (laugh) “I think Justin Timberlake is a talented performer. But he’s very ordinary-looking. He could be any skinny white kid from the suburbs of Orlando. You could go to the mall and find another Justin. He doesn’t make his style interesting even when he’s onstage. To me, he just doesn’t look like a star.” When I lived in LA, Justin went to the same gym as I did and Dupri is right, he is very ordinary and he does not look like a star. Another story in the book about Xscape breaking up was excused by Dupri as the ‘group growing apart’ but that’s not the case according to group members who claim Dupri was eating too much Kandi (Burruss). Burruss went on to become the BEST looking member of the group and a very successful industry writer.
