Who is funkier: Robin Thicke or Justin Timberlake?

I think Robin Thicke, somehow it sounds more natural.

by Anonymousreply 62July 10, 2013 2:25 AM

Robin Thicke has gay face.

Who is this Robin Thicke of whom you write?

Mr. Thicke. No questions. He has swag that Timberlake can only dream about.

@R3, hmmmm the kids don't use swag anymore.

Robin Thicke is funkier. He can actually do his own arrangements and that is something Justin literally does not have the skills set to do at all.

This might sound odd but Robin Thicker reminds me of a male version of the late Teena Marie in that his r&b work is from the heart and not a put on like Justin's.

Privileged kids can't have genuine funk (unless they're rebelling, which clearly neither of these pampered white boys are).

THIS. What many people don't know is that Robin worked behind the scenes before he became an artist in his own right, writing songs for everyone from The New Kids on the Block to Brandy. The man's got soul. It's not just an act to sell records. He's the real deal.

What are their dicks like, respectively?

Compare and contrast descriptively in terms of length, girth and circ status.

(R9) you make a great point. Another thing most people don't know is that Robin Thicke was actually raised around alot of black folks. His father, Alan Thicke (of "in the Thick of the Night" show) has always lived around blacks and so Robin was raised around them all his life. He has his daddy to thank..and all the fine black folks he was raised up around for all that soul. That's why it sounds so natural on him.

by Anonymousreply 11July 9, 2013 1:21 AM

Both try WAY too hard and it is an act. That said, Thicke has a much better voice and is a better singer/musician than TimberFake could ever be.

by Anonymousreply 12July 9, 2013 2:25 AM

Robin is funkier. When Justin comes across as funky it's only because of a track that was given to him by a producer.

Robin Thicke copied Justin Timberlake's style. Robin even stoled Timberlake's idea (Tunnel Vision) to use topless women in Blurred Lines.

Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit. Justin Timberfake copied Robin Thicke's suave, suited and coifed hair look down to the letter. Last we saw Justin promoting an album, he was scruffy and bearded. Now all of a sudden he wants to be all suit and tie, hair all straight and slick and shit. Bitch, please.

It was Britney Spears who put NSync on the map and JT in the spotlight. when it served Timberfake, he wore curly afro, cornrows, baggy urban gear, etc. and after he was accepted by the black audience, he even went out there and put on a show with Janet Jackson, and when that went awry, he ran off and left her "hangin" in the wind to fend for herself against the FCC. Fast forward and he's back with straightened hair, suit and tie, and putting videos out there with bare breasted models. That's all good and all but now that age has caught up with him, he just looks like Steven Colbert sans spectacles. Justin was and is a boy band show puppet that

Robin Thicke has been "Robin Thicke" since the late 90s, which is when he started releasing music. His look and style pre-dates Timberlake's post-Nync makeover by YEARS. It was Timberlake who copied Thicke.

by Anonymousreply 24July 9, 2013 3:43 AM

the only thing Robin Thicke did wrong was to come out with that nasty straggly hair when he first came out. His voice was beautiful but noone could get past that bad hairstyle. He fell out of sight for a long while and then he came back with a new look and brought his hot wife with him. Robin just didn't have the right look at the beginning, but now he does and it really suits him well. Justin T looks like Stephen Colbairt. No joke.

They're both hollow husks, pretenders who siphon off black culture and get deluded white people into risible debates about who "stole" from the other. Suddenly, this is a "Jet" magazine forum.


by Anonymousreply 26July 9, 2013 3:56 AM

(R26) you are correct in saying that they have siphoned off black culture. At the end of the day, the black man has been replaced by these wannabes who wanna be black, but then again, don't wanna be black.

by Anonymousreply 28July 9, 2013 4:04 AM

yes it's obvious they're both trying too hard to "act black" whatever that means. Middle America loves this kind of stuff, but if a black recording act sang the songs of Thicke or TimberFake, he probably wouldn't be nearly as popular. There are a lot of talented singers out there who can really blow but that's not what is popular these days. I will say Thicke is a decent singer. Timberfake on the other hand is quite weak, and just mediocre.

Robin Thicke at the 2013 BET awards performing his latest hit. I recall on the unrated version of the actual video of this song, there is a huge sign that says "Robin Thicke has a Big Dick".

Robin Thicke's mother is the FABulous ex-Days of Our Lives actress and singer Gloria Loring who would often sing on the show. So, by familial connections alone, Robin wins over Justin.

Robin's ballsack is funkier. Slightly sour. Like stale buttermilk.

JT? Now, his ballsack smells like a mixture of ax body spray and two hours of Jazzercise!

In my opinion, Teena Marie was the most underrated musical talent of the past 30 years.

by Anonymousreply 36July 9, 2013 4:40 AM

No question that Thicke is more genuine.

Thicke's song Blurred Lines reminds me of mid-80s Prince, without being a complete steal.

Timberfake has no particular style at all. Nice hooks that any autotuned guy could have done. Nick Jonas, or Joe for that matter, could have pulled the same song off, were they still popular.

Teena Marie had a nice voice but she was VERY guilty of both trying too hard to "be black" and she oversinging. What bothers me is that so many of white recording acts who sing r&b think they have to talk, dress and behave a certain way. They can be the way they were growing up, just singing r&b.

by Anonymousreply 42July 9, 2013 5:41 AM

I never felt like Teena Marie was phony or was trying too hard to sound/act black. Her godmother was a black woman and she spent a good part of her life around black folks, grew up in the 1970's in a mostly black neighborhood and her best friend was black (someone named "Mickey" that she mentions in a few of her songs). I think it was something real for her because she was raised in that environment and felt close to the people/culture. I think she was just being who she was. Smokey Robinson said she was the "blackest" white woman he ever knew. She always seemed genuine to me. I also recently found out that she was a good friend/mentor to Lenny Kravitz and he lived with her for a while (just friends).

A 15yo told me that Robin Thicke looks "old" in his latest video. That was her overwhelming impression--she'd never heard of him before. She likes the song, though. I just thought it was funny because Robin gives me such a douche vibe and I would love for him to know that teenagers think he looks over-the-hill. ;)

R43 Teena often gets a pass because she was a great singer. If she was some random white girl who couldn't sing, people would either make fun of her or even kick her ass for talking, dressing and behaving as she did. I don't like that double standard. I saw her Unsung episode and if you listen to her parents, they sound like regular white people. Plenty of white people grow up with a lot of black friends but don't have to change the way they sound/act/dress etc. Her voice was made for r&b but her persona to me was forced, even if other black people don't agree.

The great Teena Marie track "Ask Your Momma" is about the struggles of an interracial couple. In the liner notes of her "Robbery" album, it says this song is dedicated to Eddie Murphy.
