Justin: Hicks can't carry a tune in a bucket?

(KP International) - Don't expect Justin Timberlake to sing the praises of current American Idol Taylor Hicks especially after JT reportedly insulted the "soul patrol" icon's pipes.
"People think [Hicks] looks so normal and he's so sweet and he's so earnest, but he can't carry a tune in a bucket," Timberlake reportedly confessed to Fashion Rocks magazine.
The 25-year-old singer turned actor also apparently had doubts about Hicks' staying power. "If he has any skeletons whatsoever if, God forbid, he's gay and all these people in Mississippi who voted for him are like 'Oh, my God, I voted for a queer!' It's just too much pressure."
Since the Timberlake quotes have surfaced, his publicist, Ken Sunshine, has set the record straight about the apparent verbal attack. "These comments are taken completely out of context," Sunshine told the Washington Post. "[Justin] only wishes him well."
Timberlake's next solo album FutureSex/LoveSounds is set to hit shelves September 12.
