Justin Timberlake recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show and spoke about the time Mick Jagger invited him to perform at a charity event in Toronto.
SPOILER ALERT: It did not go well.
“You would think Canadians are historically peaceful people,” Timberlake began. “I show up to the show and I look at the bill: It’s the Rolling Stones and AC/DC and The Guess Who. You get the picture. Somewhere in there: me. It was a bit of a blur, but I just remember saying to the band before I went on, ‘I don’t think this is going to go well.’”
“Little did I know how bad it was going to go because we came on stage… I think one day of this festival hosted 500,000 people,” he continued. “All of a sudden, bottles of urine were then thrown at the stage. It wasn’t always good times for me, guys.”
Eventually, he said, the crowd stopped throwing urine bottles at him…
“Either they ran out of nerve, because they knew I was going to stay there, or they ran out of urine. So kids, be tenacious.”
“I still have a lot of trauma from this incident,” he said in conclusion.
