Lasting Icon Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys will still be remembered in 50 years time.

Singing legend Smokey Robinson insists there are many outstanding modern day artists whose music will last the test of time because they are so talented.

He said: "There are some wonderful talents out there and their music will live on. There's a bunch of them, I can name Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, there's a bunch of them. I know there's some good music being made by great young artists."

However, Smokey is worried that too much negative attention is being focussed on music instead of good artists being praised.

He added to BANG Showbiz: "People look at music nowadays and there is far less censorship than there used to be so people tend to draw their attention to the negatives.

"This is not only true in music but it all of our lives - the news is always so negative, we are drawn towards the negative, so the negative music is out in the forefront of people's minds."
