Justin Timberlake threatened over new single

Justin Timberlake could face a possible lawsuit over his new single, We Own The Night, by an anti-sexual violence group who alleges that he used their name without permission, according to Radar Online. Take Back The Night claims that Timberlake, 32, did not have legal permission to use their name, so they have contacted his agent through a legal counsel. “The lyrics are definitely very sexual and not at all clearly anti-sexual violence,” said executive director Katherine Koestner to Radar Online. “‘Use me,’ for example, is not a great phrase for anyone affiliated with the organization.” Timberlake’s agent did respond and apologized on the singer’s behalf. Koestner added: “His agent said ‘Justin’s a good guy! He’s a family man!’ They claimed he’d never heard of us before he wrote that song.” The single is the first song from Timberlake’s forthcoming album, The 20/20 Experience – Part 2, which is set to drop September 30. ~Alfonso Espina

    Really? New phrases and words are hard to come by now. What was thought of is already said and put into song..oh oh, Sorry Selina Gomez. Can we humm without getting sued soon?

    so basically the same words are “The Night” out of we own the night and take back the night? That’s a leap for any lawsuit. And isn’t that also the name of a movie with Mark Wahlberg and Joachin Pheonix?

    Someone needs to objectively measure how much good some of these activists and their organizations are actually responsible for since they seem to spend the majority of their time getting their feathers ruffled over nothing. Shouldn’t all those legal fees and time they wasted be put towards the cause they are supposed to be championing?
