Timberlake: 'Stipe Made Me Cry'

Pop superstar JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE was "almost in tears" when REM frontman MICHAEL STIPE praised his hit single Cry Me a River. The SexyBack singer says Stipe showed his appreciation for the track days before the Brit awards in 2003. He says, "I knew that song was serious when I was on a plane going to London. Michael Stipe came up to me and said Cry Me a River was one of the most exciting, well-written songs he'd heard in the past five years. I was almost in tears. "So it got me thinking, 'Why can't I do that again?'
