British rockers Kasabian have launched a blistering tirade against Justin Timberlake, branding the heart-throb a "midget" and a "puppet".
The astonishing attack comes as the EMPIRE four-piece are riding high in the UK charts with their number one album, and Timberlake is about to top the singles charts with his comeback track SEXYBACK.
Lead singer Tom Meighan says, "He's a midget with whiskers who is just trying to be black. He's a puppet in a million-dollar suit who's had his strings cut off.
"It's just money music. Absolute rubbish. You can smell the money coming off it. He's a k**bhead."
Bassist Chris Edwards adds, "Sexyback? More like hairy back. It's the worst title of any record I've ever heard!"
