Forget sexy. Justin Timberlake is bringing kindness back.
The singer has delivered an important message about embracing people who might be “different” after winning Song Of The Year for “Can’t Stop The Feeling” at the iHeart Radio Awards.
Justin started off giving a traditional acceptance speech, thanking various people, but then he spoke to his younger fans about diversity, being different and owning the very attribute that sets you apart.
“If you are black or you are brown or you are gay or you are lesbian or you are trans or maybe you’re just a sissy singing boy from Tennessee….Anyone that is treating you unkindly, it’s only because they are afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are.”
He continued, “Because being different means you make the difference. So F*ck ‘em!”
And with that, the singing boy from Tennessee walked off the stage to HUGE applause.
