I have a hard time believing that he has even read The Hobbit let alone it’s his favorite book. I could be surprised by the member of Backstreet Boys, I mean 98 degrees, I mean NSYNC. I always get those bands confused. I think it has something to do with my conspiracy theory that they are all the same band. It's just a marketing ploy to make more money by selling three times as many CDs.

Yah, I found it really scary at first ... I mean, pop singers and Tolkien DO NOT MIX. It's just a bit scary. But I don't even know if it's true ... Someone verify? Maybe? Please?

Isn't he the "boy" that dated Britney Spears? Maybe we was trying to distract us away from his break up with her. It was a diversion for the ringers.

Then it must be a boy band conspiracy to reach out to more people than just 12 year old girls. They figure that the ringers is a large group and that they should go for it.

This is sort of off subject, but I heard that N'SYNC was supposed to be in the new Star Wars movie. They were supposedly some "clones" in a battle and were killed.

I just saw this thread's Title & said 'UGH!"

Back when I was your age, somebody would've posted up 'The Bee-Gees & The Lord of the Rings"

Who? you say.......

They were to music in the '70's what In Stink is today:
Commercially produced for the masses bubble gum.....

Um... I read the hobbit when I ws 8, sorry but if anyone out there thought he had a high IQ or something... Sorry, did I burst your bubble? But popstars do not have high IQ's, otherwise they would have had a 'higher calling in life'!:D
Ok, my mom says that Bob Dylan had a High IQ, but that's not what we're talking about!;)

I just found it a little disconcerting that a member of 'nSTINK would find a great piece of literature great ... But, I guess Tolkien reaches out to a lot of different people, no matter how low.

It's entirely possible that he read it when a little boy. He must be able to read, how else would they give him the songs other people write for NSYNC?
You probably wouldn't think any of Led Zepplin were great literature fans but they knew Lord of the Rings enough to put lyrics about it in their songs. Rock!
And yes, Bob Dylan does have an IQ. He is in fact a god. His royal Bob-ness, hurrah!

Hehehe, "The Monkeys" were a band...they actually played their instruments. NSYNC is not a band at all, and I don't know, aside from the aliterative quality of the term "boy band", why they and the others get called bands. They are in fact "Vocal Groups", like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir or the King Family...hehe. :)
