Justin Timberlake has denied claiming that *NSYNC are a better group than One Direction. He said that the quotes were taken out of context in a message posted earlier today. The question was about which band would win in a pie-eating contest. He tweeted: ‘I thought the question was about a pie eating contest. My bad. #newsworthy’.
He was quoted by The Breakfast Club as saying: ‘I have not seen them on stage, but I’d be willing to say that we’re better than them. But I don’t feel like I’m laying down any gauntlet. I’ve seen them a couple times and I like those guys. It’s interesting to see this whole wave of that come back around.’
