Timberlake se queda sin una distinción en EEUU por ser sexy

No ha podido ser. El cantante de Memphis, actualmente inmerso en la gira mundial de su último disco, FutureSex/LoveSounds, se ha quedado sin la distinción que los senadores demócratas de su Estado natal, Tennesse, querían concederle. ¿La razón? La oposición de los senadores demócratas que consideran a Timberlake demasiado “sexual” para ser honrado por el Senado, según recoge Dotmusic.

Fue la senadora demócrata Ophelia Ford quien planteó una resolución para homenajear al solista por su exitosa carrera musical y por su servicio a su tierra natal. Dicha resolución necesitaba apoyo unánime para ser aprobada, pero el senador republicano Raymond Finney se negó a hacerlo alegando que no quería ver su nombre mezclado en ese asunto.

Finney llamó la atención acerca del contenido demasiado sexual que, a su juicio, incluye el último trabajo discográfico de Timberlake, y recordó el título de algunas de sus canciones, como SexyBack, el primer single del álbum, que alcanzó el número 1 de singles en Estados Unidos. Posición que alcazaron después de forma consecutiva “My Love” y “What goes around… Comes around”, el segundo y el tercer sencillo del álbum, respectivamente.

Timberlake, que en enero comenzó la gira mundial de FutureSex/LoveSounds, ofrecerá casi 40 conciertos en EE UU para desembarcar posteriormente en Europa. El tour por el Viejo Continente arrancará el 24 de abril en Belfast (Irlanda del Norte) y finalizará con una triple cita en Londres los días 4, 5 y 7 de julio, pasando por países como Francia, Alemania, Italia, Suiza, Noruega o Dinamarca. De momento, España sigue fuera de los planes del cantante.

A continuación el texto completo de la resolución del Senado.
