Justin Timberlake Talks New Music & Turning 30
SAN FRANCISCO (MOViN99.7 / CBS) - It may seem like just yesterday that many of us (myself included) spent hours daydreaming about the curly-haired, singing teen superstar Justin Timberlake. The dreamy popstar isn’t a teen anymore. In fact, he’ll be turning the big 3-0 in January. Just because he’s little bit older doesn’t mean he’s getting ready to slow down anytime soon as he revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Fans of Timberlake have been anxiously waiting for him to drop new solo material. The problem is Timberlake isn’t just a singer. He’s a fashion designer, actor, record label exec and restaurant owner. You can’t really blame the guy… he’s got a lot on his plate.
Timberlake’s last album effort, Futuresex/Lovesounds, was released back in 2006 and spawned the club hit “Sexyback.” Since then he’s immersed himself in a budding acting career. Roles in films like Alpha Dog, Shrek and The Social Network have taken him away from the studio, however, he reassures fans that he is not done with music. “For some reason I find I keep getting that question a lot,” explains Timberlake. “Like I said, ‘I’m never doing music again’… I’m a male and I lack the ability to do two things at the same time.”
The soon-to-be 30 year-old is showing no signs of slowing down. He’s currently at work on a few movie projects including the upcoming Yogi Bear animated flick where he will be the voice of sidekick Boo Boo. He was also recenty named one of the sexiest men alive by People magazine. Not bad for the man who describes himself as “Mean and clean cause I’m not longer in my teens. Is that too long of a title?” jokes the singer.
