Tennessee Doesn't Honor Timberlake

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE won't be bringing sexy back to the TENNESSEE Legislature. Democratic State Sen. OPHELIA FORD had introduced a resolution to honor TIMBERLAKE, a TENNESSEE native, "for his highly successful music career and for his meritorious service to the State of TENNESSEE."
But Republican Sen. RAYMIND FINNEY removed it from a list of resolutions that is expected to get unanimous support in the Senate. "It's not something I want my name on," FINNEY said.
Republican senators took issue with calling attention to TIMBERLAKE's latest album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," and to song titles like "SexyBack" and "Rock Your Body."
The four-time GRAMMY winner is from MILLINGTON, a town near MEMPHIS.
Meanwhile, CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WKXJ/CHATTANOOGA night VT stud AARON "CHEDDAR" TYLER has set up a petition to get the resolution back on the agenda.
