Pop star PRINCE took a humourous swipe at JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE while performing at an Emmy Awards after party on Sunday night (27AUG06) in Hollywood.
The 48-year-old PURPLE RAIN star took the stage at West Hollywood's Sky Bar to entertain the crowd at the ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT party.
Timberlake boasts in his new hit single "he's bringing sexy back", but Prince begs to differ.
He yelled to the massive crowd, "For whoever is claiming that they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!"
FEDERLINE LANDED TV ROLE FROM BAD PERFORMANCE
BRITNEY SPEARS' husband KEVIN FEDERLINE was devastated by the poor reviews he received for his rap performance at the Teen Choice Awards, but the gig ended up landing him a role on the hit show CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.
Federline reportedly put on a brave face after the scathing reviews came in after his 20 August (06) performance, but friends say the rapper was hit hard by the criticism.
A source tells American publication Us Weekly, "He was actually crying."
The next day at the couple's Malibu, California home the source says Britney "also cried for him...She didn't leave him alone all day."
There was one good thing to come out of the debacle - CSI writer DUSTIN ABRAHAM saw the show and loved Federline's performance, which inspired him to write a character for Federline into the show.
The former back-up dancer will guest star in October (06) as the leader of a violent gang.
Abraham explains, "He has this cockiness and confidence that I like. But I told him...he needs to be the guy that you hate. It's the perfect role."
Federline has already finished shooting his spot and Abraham says, "There wasn't a lot of acting - more beating (people up). I thought he was awesome!"
