He's not laying down the gauntlet though...
Speaking to Vibe, Justin Timberlake said he thinks that 'N Sync is better than One Direction.
During the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25, Timberlake said it was fun to reunite with his former bandmates for a one-off special performance. He then took a shot at One Direction. He said, "It's like old times but we're a lot slower. There was a time where we actually bigger than bubblegum so I thought it would be an interesting send-up."
Timberlake then added about One Direction, "I'll be willing to say that we're better than them but I'm not laying down any gauntlet. I've seen them a couple of times and I like those guys. It's interesting to see that whole wave come around."
Following the VMA's, the other members of 'N Sync insisted there are no plans for a long-term reunion tour. Timberlake's next album, The 20/20 Experience - Part 2 is due out on September 30.
