The same thing was said about Frank Sinatra, yet he was able to make a comeback in the early-to mid '50s with a movie and the album In The Wee Small Hours. A similar thing was said about Justin Timberlake, yet here he is with a new album about to be released. It's all about chance and what people like as much as it is 'art' sustaining a career..
I don't think anyone ever thought Justin Timberlake was stupid. I certainly don't remember anyone saying that. People doubted his talent because he came from a boys band, and he proved them wrong. No one is doubting Justin Bieber's skills, although it can be argued that he hasn't fully developed his identity as a performer, but the kid keeps saying the most ridiculously stupid things, and that's what make people tick.
