I have a new found respect for Justin Timberlake. Recently he was expected to release a fragrance using his name. He declined by saying "there's some level of narcissism you have to put in check."
Wow, if I didn't have an opinion on him before, I am now in love with this guy for setting a good example. Rarely do you see celebrities take this kind of stance. Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are the norm lately.
Thank you Justin for giving us hope that there are still men out there not yet destroyed by our culture's incessant narcissism. You rock!!!!!
Justin Timberlake 'Won't Launch His Own Fragrance'
Published Sunday, 12th July, 2009 at Angryape.com
Justin Timberlake won't be following in the footsteps of his peers by releasing a fragrance for a cosmetic company using his name.
For now the 'SexyBack' star is happy pursuing his music and acting careers, as well as his co-owned William Rast fashion line.
Discussing the idea of his own scent, Timberlake told Women's Wear Daily: "There's some level of narcissism you have to put in check."
"I don't know that I would be completely comfortable with a my-name fragrance. It feels like cheating, almost. It doesn't seem like you're creating anything."
But Justin didn't rule-out launching a fragrance altogether. He adds: "I could see doing a William Rast fragrance, but that's as far as I think I'll take it."
