There is nothing worse than getting ready for a show, getting all hyped up and dressed in your best, only to find out it was canceled. What I think we need to understand is, just like the rest of us, celebs get tired and sick. It is just how life works (and finally proves to us they ARE humans not androids). This happened to a bunch of Justin Timberlake fans recently, as Justin Timberlake postponed a concert citing health reasons. We know it is a bummer for fans, but wouldn’t you be even more bummed if he tried to perform all these shows and just got sicker and sicker? We think so.
As CBS News points out, the weirdest part is that he took to Twitter and canceled the shows himself, not giving his exact health reasons. He just told everyone he had no choice but to back out of the recent NYC show due to health reasons, but he never gave us any health reasons. I am not saying he HAS to, but the reality is, when he doesn’t it leads to speculation. Now people are wondering what it is, how serious it is, and when it will pass.
Here’s the thing about J. Timbs. The man is an absolute machine. He never stops. He has been going non-stop for a decade or two now. As his fans and humans ourselves, we understand the toll that takes. That can wipe you out. Maybe it is just exhaustion and he needs a couple days to recoup. Either way, you know he will post pone the shows, and anyone who was set to go knows no matter when they go, they will get a great show.
So for now, just let the poor guy a rest.
