Before there was a Bieber, the original teen Justin runnin’ thangs was Timberfake-y… And he’s not gonna let you forget it!
Justin talks about his glory days in the current issue of Vanity Fair:
“It was exciting that we were having so much success and we could do whatever we wanted. And I mean that about everybody: Backstreet Boys, ’NSync, Britney, Christina,” Timberlake says of his early years as a pop idol. “At that time, we could literally go, ‘Oh, man, let’s go to Bali,’ and we’d be on a plane to Bali. We were little kids with big toys. You do the math—that’s not going to last.” Some very big toys, indeed, as Timberlake recalls that on the set of The All-New Mickey Mouse Club, “Ryan [Gosling] and I used to steal golf carts and go driving in the middle of the park to get milk shakes, and we never got in trouble for it. We thought we were big sh*t.”
OOOH REBELS! How bada*s… But that was then, this is now. Justin says he has changed a lot since dating Britney Spears back in the day:
“I wish her the best—that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years.” The former child star says that most of his and Spears’s relationship was based on circumstance, but had no chance for the long term. “We were two birds of the same feather—small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person,” he says. “I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”
Justin also talks about his now ex-girlfriend Jessica Biel, calling her his “most special person.”
“She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life,” Justin Timberlake tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Vanessa Grigoriadis of recent ex-girlfriend Jessica Biel. “In my 30 years, she is the most special person, O.K.? … I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me—for instance, her.”
Ummmmm wasn’t he choppping down other chicks the whole time they were together? That’s real dear! SMH…
Timberlake also claims he’s close to being ready to be a father than earlier this year:
“as little as six months ago I wouldn’t have even thought about that, but now it feels like a closer planet orbiting around.” Of marriage, the musician turned actor explains what he feels is an uphill battle: “I think the mistake is that people commit to who that person is right then and not the person they’re going to become. That’s the art of staying together, is changing together,” he says. “When you say it like that, it seems damn near impossible, right?”
No wonder he is such a dirty dog… As skanky as he is, we are kinda disappointed to hear that Timberfake isn’t that into music these days:
“I wouldn’t say I’m not going to put out another [album]. I would say that would be a bad bet, if you were betting. But I could see myself only doing one more big tour”
His second album was fire. Don’t front.
The good news is if you want to see Justin’s man cakes, he shows them in his new film with Mila Kunis “Friends With Benefits”:
Of her co-star’s nudity in Benefits, Kunis says, “The men never have to do anything, and we’re always seeing the boobies of the ladies. So for this one, [director] Will [Gluck] said, ‘O.K., Justin can show himself off,’ which I thought was great.” “It was fun,” Timberlake agrees, “but I can’t say I’m going to be butt-naked in a movie again. I only did it because I’m young now, and everything’s where it’s supposed to be. I figured this is the time, before gravity gets the best of me.”
Does that mean we get to see that timberwood? Do you think Justin is packing?
