Timberlake Slammed By Unimpressed O'Jays

Subscribe Justin Timberlake

THE O'JAYS have reacted angrily to JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE's involvement in their ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME induction, insisting he's irrelevant to their musical achievements.

The LOVE TRAIN veterans were introduced by the hunky pop star at the New York ceremony, but despite generously devoting his time to honouring The O'Jays, Timberlake's presence was met with protests from the band.

Singer EDDIE LEVERT says, "We protested, kicked and stomped. But it is out of our control."

Bandmate WALTER WILLIAMS adds, "No offence to Justin, because he deserves the respect he has earned, but I could think of a few people who know more about our pain and suffering and history."

U2, THE PRETENDERS, PERCY SLEDGE and BUDDY GUY were also inducted into the prestigious museum yesterday (14MAR05).
