I was a big N*Sync fan. Me and millions of adolescent girls.

They were a guilty pleasure, like music was in the 60s and 70s… listening just for fun.

I guess I went along with all the baloney that they broke up because JT got all full of himself and thought he was too good. Later, I didn’t listen because I went along with the ‘trying too hard to be black’ thing.

That was bad because you just don’t ‘try’ to be Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Tina Turner or Smokey Robinson. You are or you aren’t and that full of himself kid from N*Sync wasn’t.

One day, I heard ‘Sexy Back’ and really liked it. He wasn’t trying to be anything, he was just singing a fun song and it seemed like he was having fun doing it. Well, I started paying more attention. Not to the gossip, like before, but to the music. He’s really talented. Both as a singer and as a performer.

Tonight, I caught the concert at Madison Square Garden on HBO and, wow. Not only was the music good, but he seemed like he was genuinely having a good time up there. Not working… having fun. That comes out in the music. You can tell who is singing for money and fame, and who is singing for love and fun.
