    watch out for a wardrobe malfunction with Timberlake and Madonna!
    Brintney will be ticked off, Madonna’s her idol

  2. Nancy • February 27, 2008 @ 1:27 PM

    That was my first thought too, Dave. I would really be scarred for life if I had to endure seeing her shriveled up old prunes!!

    Timberlake at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is wrong on so many levels…

  4. Anonymous • February 27, 2008 @ 1:59 PM

    Well this is well deserved!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    She has actually been around the full 25 years with constant hits…

    Who knew Madonna and Justin Timberlake were rock and roll???

  6. Arnold • February 27, 2008 @ 6:59 PM

    Yes Tribute Girl, Justin Timberlake having anything to do with rock is a travesty. Just drives home the fact the talent means 0. Mareketing and exposure now rule.

    Madonna’s induction is kind of strange as well, her being a pop star and all.

  7. tributegirl • February 27, 2008 @ 7:55 PM

    Yeah, Arnold, actually that wasn’t me earlier, that was double. But I do actually agree with double this time.
    And I agree with you, it doesn’t seem quite right for these two people.
    And as for a wardrobe malfunction, ok, you guys scared me enough, just imagining it is bad enough, I won’t be watching ANYTHING to do with this “ceremony”! LMAO

    About time for a face lift girl!

  9. tributegirl • February 27, 2008 @ 8:20 PM

    And some dental work!

  10. tributegirl • February 27, 2008 @ 8:21 PM

    Look at that gap! She reminds me of Garfields girlfriend!

  11. Reuben Kincaid • February 28, 2008 @ 2:17 AM

    Awesome! Buzz is the newly-reformed NKOTB will get the show off to a rocking good start.

  12. foreveryourtributegirl • February 28, 2008 @ 2:40 AM

    The NKOTB rock!!! Welcome back, boys!

  13. tributegirl double • February 28, 2008 @ 11:57 AM

    Agreed! As a HUGE fan of the NKOTB, I can’t wait!!!

  14. Sean Mulcahy • February 28, 2008 @ 12:22 PM

    Welcome back to NKOTB??? You’ve got to be kidding me!!! They have been all washed up for 15 years! Has-beens! And if you were a fan of them in the late-80’s and early 90’s, then you must be in your 30’s by now. Aren’t you a little old to be a fan of a long washed up boy band? Says a lot about you and none of it good!

  15. Nancy • February 28, 2008 @ 12:31 PM

    I’m around that age, Sean, and I agree with you. In fact the New Kids even sucked back then!!

    billie holliday isnt rock either. it just has to do with being a top musician, im sure michael jackson is gonna be in there is he isnt already.

  17. Nancy • February 28, 2008 @ 4:35 PM

    Ewwwwwwwe! M.J!! Say bye bye to Neverland. Pretty expensive to lure children nowadays!! 🙂

  18. Alexandra • February 28, 2008 @ 4:38 PM

    Michael Jackson has been an inductee twice – first as a member of The Jackson Five, and then as a solo artist.

  19. tributegirl #2 • February 28, 2008 @ 10:35 PM

    Why call it the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame if it doesn’t pertain to rock and roll? Somebody goofed.

  20. Anonymous • February 28, 2008 @ 10:44 PM

    it should be called the musical mediocrity hall of fame.

  21. tributegirl #2 • February 29, 2008 @ 2:05 AM

    The “Hangin’ Tough” and “Step By Step” albums were to the late Eighties and early Nineties what “Thriller” was to 1983. “This One’s for the Children” is STILL one of the biggest selling singles EVER, so really, it should be the NKOTB inducting Madonna, not Timberlake.

  22. Karen • February 29, 2008 @ 2:37 AM

    I love “This One’s for the Children,” tributegirl!

  23. tributegirl • February 29, 2008 @ 11:13 AM

    That was tributegirl #2, Karen. I don’t even know that song!
    Karen, where have you been hiding? Haven’t seen your name in ages!

  24. Ed Davis • February 29, 2008 @ 11:43 AM

    There’s a tributegirl #2 now?!?!

  25. Nancy • February 29, 2008 @ 11:50 AM

    Ya never know!!! Stranger things have happened….

  26. Karen • February 29, 2008 @ 2:16 PM

    I don’t think there’s a double at all. I think tributegirl is responsible for most of the posts on this forum under one name or another…but that’s just me.

  27. Anonymous • February 29, 2008 @ 2:33 PM

    Why is an ACTOR inducting the Dave Clark Five??? At least get an actor with an album or two to his credit (i.e. William Shatner).

  28. Anonymous • February 29, 2008 @ 3:41 PM

    Maybe this Karen is the double???

  29. Poppa John • February 29, 2008 @ 7:31 PM

    Wow!! Hangin’ Tough was what Thriller was to 1983?? You have ingested too much of something, and you better get checked!!! That bunch of paranoid schizophrenics cannnot, even in insanity and mental diseases, compare to Michael Jackson ( and THAT in itself is quite sad, if ya think about it!!)
    What either of those 2 are doing at the rock and roll hall of fame is beyond me!!!

  30. tributegirl • March 1, 2008 @ 12:20 AM

    “Hangin Tough was what Thriller was to 1983”

    I agree completely — “Hangin’ Tough” is a great album.

  31. Poppa John • March 1, 2008 @ 7:28 PM

    Thriller ruled the world. Hanging Tough ruled the pants of pre-pubescent girls. BIG DIFFERENCE THERE!!

  32. tributegirl • March 1, 2008 @ 9:01 PM

    No, Karen, you are wrong. I am not double, I don’t need to pretend to be someone else to get my kicks. Maybe it is you, your name hasn’t been on here much lately, but there have been a lot of comments by double.
    Actually, I have contacted Tribute about this, and they are now deleting as many of “double’s” comments that they can figure out.
