Justin Timberlake Snubs 'The Hills'

Justin Timberlake Snubs 'The Hills'

Justin Timberlake‘s hatred for reality TV became very apparent during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards when he repeatedly asked MTV to ditch reality TV and play more music videos.

The girls from The HillsLauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port — were supposed to present Timberlake with Male Artist of the Year but after Lauren announced Justin as the winner, things got a little strange.

A fourth female mysteriously showed up on stage to join The Hills girls to hand the moon man to Timbaland, who in turn gave it to Justin. Justin did not give eye contact or thank any of the presenters, as most winners do.

“Play more dayum videos. We don’t want to see the Simpsons on reality television,” said Justin, referring to sisters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson. “Play more videos.”

And then when accepting the award for the Quadruple Threat Award, Justin reiterated, “I want to challenge MTV to play more videos.”

Watch the video below and see for yourself!!!!!

Ironically, Justin is one of Lauren‘s celebrity crushes.

    i love justin and all but that was a pretty dousche move.

  • Beyonce

    ummh JT was extremely rude. Does he know that the hills and their 4+ million viewers are the only show keeping MTV alive these days.

    Whitney has a major crush on justin not LC. LC crush used to be Adam Brody.

    JT sucks!!!

  • Susan

    I agree with him. Waaaaaaaaaay too many shows on MTV and not enough music videos. I hardly watch anymore because even on TRL you get like 10 to 15 seconds of a video and that’s it. So, more videos and less reality! We get enough of those damn shows on most of the other networks.

  • NJS06

    LOL. BURN!

  • Caro

    HEEY! I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPENNED WITH THE HILLS GIRLS? HAVE PROBLEMS WITH JUSTIN OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT? OMG! THEY CAN’T ESCAPE DRAMAA!!

  • laurensucksbeefcurtains

    I agree with JT

  • bataglio

    YES!!!! Justin is right! I want my (old) MTV! …that actually played music!

  • Nelly

    This awards show was a joke. It’s no longer about music, it’s about parties. MTV is becoming a joke. What the hell happened to the channel which took risks and was unique?

    I agree with Justin about more music videos but he’s still a jerk. The last performance was BORING!!!

  • Michelle

    First

  • Michelle

    Damn. But I do agree with Justin. MTV has lost touch with its original function.

  • mtv reality tv suckks

    JUSTIN IS RIGHT, IT IS MUSIV TELEVISION NOT DITSY BLONDE REALTY JUNK. NEVER LIKED FULL HOUSE ROOMMATES AND ALL THOSE FAKE REALTY SHOWS. THEY ARE TALENTLESS ACTORS AND SHOULDN’T BE ON STAGE.

  • Madi

    Well he’s right. Maybe he could’ve done a better way of showing it but it’s true. I don’t get why so many people care about what spoiled bitches do for their 16th birthday, or about the Hills girls. Their show is horrible and they shouldn’t be offended. They have no talent and are famous for nothing. I’m not sure why anyone would choose that lifestyle. Why are they at the VMAs? They have no musical talent either. It’s like at the MMAs. They don’t act.
    But anyway, I agree. Play videos!

  • mtv reality tv sucks

    JUSTIN IS RIGHT, IT IS CALLED MUSIC TELEVISION!!!!!! NOT DITSY BLONDE REALTY JUNK TV. NEVER LIKED THAT FULL HOUSE ROOMMATES SERIES AND ALL THOSE FAKE REALTY SHOWS. THEY ARE TALENTLESS ACTOR WANNABES AND SHOULDN’T BE ON STAGE!!!!!!

  • adri

    I was just commenting earlier that all MTV plays these days is crappy reality televison, which is why I don’t watch that station anymore. They created MTV2 in an attempt to continue to live up to the title Music Television.

  • Belle

    i agree with him.. but i LOVE the hills.. i say keep the hills and get rid of all the other shows!

  • [~Famous~]

    i think he meant simpsons as in cartoon characters, not the simpson sisters who’ve been off mtv for awhile now. and he’s right, mtv has way to many (scripted) non-reality shows.

    i’m glad he said it, someone had to. those girls are talentless jokes, and because of mtv there are many ‘celebrities’ out there just like them.

  • BBperfume

    Justin is so full of himself like he think he is invincible or something. At least he didn’t try to diss britney misfortunes on live tv, like he usually does at his concerts.

    I hate Timberlake. But i guess evryone is cashing in on each other, Timberlake collaborating in hip hop..he looked ridiculous trying to hang with 50 cent and Timbaland…

  • stillthereforme

    Totally agree with JT.

  • Neg

    I agree with JT but that was kind of rude.
    JT needs to get his own show on MTV and play music videos :). That’ll be awesome!

  • EvilLynn

    He IS obnoxious and full of himself…but at least he schooled those bimbos….that was pretty funny…

  • SILVIA

    HE IS 10000 PERCENT RIGHT. PLAY MORE MUSIC BECAUSE MUSIC IS LIFE

  • mickey

    So he thinks making a big statement about MTV playing more videos?!?!? People have been saying that for years. Considering the stuff that passes for music that they actually do play on MTV, it doesn’t even matter if they play more videos because it’s all a bunch of dreck. Justin shouldn’t snub anyone considering his whole career is cribbed from tons of R&B performers and then executed in a considerably average way. He is lucky that he has reached the heights that he has being as average as he is. He is buzzard faced, arrogant loser who should learn to just be grateful for all his undeserved accolades.

  • mtv sucks

    I HATE TRL TOO, I WAS THERE AS AN AUDIENCE AND MTV MAKES/CUES AUDIENCE TO FAKE SCREAM OR THEY ARE NOT FILMED. PLUS THEY ONLY SEEK ATTRACTIVE YOUNG PEOPLE TO BE THIER FAKE AUDIENCE. ALL THAT UGLY SHRIEKING. MTV IS GETTING FAKE AND WORST. NO NEED FOR TALENTLESS KRISTIN CAVALLARIE, THE HILL HOS, TEILA TEQUILA, ETC. ETC.

    Videos are so boring to watch. Justin is rude and arrogant. I like reality shows.

  • coalharbourqt

    Fug – no, he meant the Simpson sisters – he said REALITY television. The Simpsons is a CARTOON (ie non-reality). Tie that in with the snub to the presenters and he’s making a point: enough with these reality tv shows and the ridiculous type of ‘fame’ that it gives to people who have no talent.

    I can see where JT is coming from – anyway you slice it, he has talent and has worked hard to get where he is in life. The whole phenomena of ‘reality celebrities’ would seem pretty ridiculous to someone like him. I know it is hard for younger people to understand (and I’m not exactly old myself) but there was a time wher you were only a famous celebrity if you actually had a TALENT.

    Videos are so boring to watch. Justin is rude and arrogant, he annoys me. I like reality shows.

  • coalharbourqt

    There was a time when MTV was all about the music… :D

  • LOVE ANGELINA

    Justin ain’t lying. Play more videos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don’t like none of those girls from The Hills expect Heidi and Whitney.

    Proud of you Justin.

  • http://www.themediatap.com themediatap

    Justin was right on. They do need to play more videos. I remember the days when all they did was play music vids. Now you’ve gotta catch them on MTV2 if you’re lucky. MTV is evolving, but are they losing their relevance to the music in exchange for reality TV?

  • ah

    That was funny! I hate those girls, they sound like idiots and the reality show–shows what idiots they really are…

  • sassafrass

    It wasn’t a random girl, it was one of the trophy girls. When the 3 “Hills” girls came out they didn’t have a trophy with them. It is normail for there to be a trophy girl to actually hand over the award.

  • I AGREE

    YAYYYYYYYYYY I SO AGREE, I HATE FAKE REALITY TV..SIMPSONS AND FAT UNIBROW LAUREN BEEFY CONRAD..HE IS CORRECT TO SAY WHAT HE SAID..YAYYYYYYY

  • [~Famous~]

    he’s not talking about the simpson sisters.

  • 26 L LOSER

    NO. 26 L SORRY TO HEAR YOUR LIFE IS SO BORING THAT YOU LIVE FOR REALITY TV OR OTHER PEOPLE LIVES THAT ARE FAKE AND IT’S TOO BAD YOU ARE NOT A FAN OF MUSIC. YOU SOUND LIKE A DULL PERSON.

  • coalharbourqt

    “We don’t want to see the Simpsons on REALITY television”. How much clearer can you get? What he could have said that would have been clearer is “We don’t want reality shows on MUSIC television”, but the sentiment is still the same.

    LOOK at what JJ has written above in his article if you think I’m the only one who gets it. Duh.

  • popi

    we dont want more bimbos like simpsons. your right jt. play videos

  • shopgirl

    I agree with what he said but not in the way he said it. There was no reason to be rude to the girls especially considering The Hills is keeping MTV afloat!

  • GET A CLUE ~FAMOUS~

    HE IS SAYING HE’D RATHER SEE SIMPSONS SISTER IN A MUSIC VIDEO AND NOT THEIR REALITY SHOWS. IT WAS NOT MEANT TO OFFEND THEM BUT TO GET THE WORD ACROSS. BTW FAMOUS, YOU ARE ALWAYS ON THE FIRST PAGE TO COMMENT. DO YOU WORK OR HAVE A LIFE OFFLINE?

  • TXGAL

    You that the reality was bad on MTV before how about the previews for a Shot of love with Teqila whatever the internet girl..I almost fell off my couch..now MTV is low in the reality dept.! I’ll take the HILLS anyday over that show! :)

  • [~Famous~]

    lmao idiots. he’s not talking about the simpsons sisters – dance puppets.

  • Donna

    Thanks Justin, you won in every way!

  • ver

    I was embarrassed for The Hills girls. I’d have to agree with Justin though, too much reality tv nowadays. In the morning while I get ready for school or work, I turn on my TV and put it on MTV for some music but a reality show is what’s always on. I’m not kidding. So, I watch VH1 instead.

    Can’t stand Tila Nguyen. Cancel the show before it airs pleeeease!

  • Neela

    MTV should play more music videos (even MTV 2′s lacking), but that was a douche thing to do. It was rude, tasteless, and lacked utter class. It reflects a smug ego.

  • YAMI

    he should shout his mouth

    it´s true that MTV should play more music
    but people prefer reality shows rather than his shitty music

  • lula29

    Don’t any of you think it’s weird that these girls are famous for the supposed reality they live everyday? I mean, do they even know who they really are anymore?

    I didn’t think it was classless at all, so what it hurts these shallow, no talent girl’s feelings. They need to wake the f*uck up anyway and realize no one cares that much about their lives, we’re being forced to watch by not having much of a choice for anything else. It’s either “reality” shows or crap music videos. Someone needs to stand up for talent. You might not like JT’s genre of music, but I don’t think anyone can deny he’s at least talented. Those girls are a waste of space on TV and no one gives a shit. They need to get lost. I wish he was even more blunt than that to be honest.

  • Julia

    Well, I gotta admit, SOME reality shows are very intriguing however, Justin does make a great point! ‘MTV’ does stand for ‘Music Television’ and what the flying fu*k does does any of the reality show on MTV have to do with ‘Music Television’? Seriously? It’s just that with all the non-music related shows on MTV these days it really seems like MTV has lost sight of what they are truly all about.

    And as for the retarded moron who says Justin only said that because he thinks he’s invincible, If you were as hot, talented and successful as he is, you’d think you were invincible too! lol. And Yes The Hills may have 4Million+ viewers but it’s pointless, non music related reality shows like this that are ruining what MTV stands for. Without music, life would just be unbearable and if MTV goes down the drain, then we’re all pretty much screwed!
