Justin Timberlake is one of my ultimate favorite male musicians but he hung up his microphone to do some acting, which is fine and all. But seriously. I miss his voice on the scene. At any rate, Tizzle got some acting under his belt, as well as a couple of Emmys, but now he’s taking a break…from everything. In a recent interview with Esquire magazine, Justin talks about music, acting and his sick crush on the Middletons. Check out some highlights from the interview below.
ON TAKING A BREAK FROM THE INDUSTRY:
“I think you can work and work and work and never really live. The plan is to have no plan. I’ll probably travel, but I’d rather be spontaneous. I feel like I’ve earned at least a little bit of time to do that.” Hmmm, does this mean he is going to focus on his relationship with Jessica Biel?
ON HIS CAREER ACCOMPLISHMENTS TO DATE:
“There were times I was motivated by the fact I wanted to be the biggest music star in the world. Maybe it wasn’t a conscious thought, but it was an underlying theme. I’ve spent a lot of time feeling like I needed to validate so much of who I was by what I did. After I turned 30 I started asking myself questions why. The only validation I crave now is to be inspired in the same way I’ve always been. That’s all I really owe myself at this point. If I stopped now, I could look at everything I’ve done and be so proud.”
ON TRYING TO BE A SERIOUS ACTOR:
“I’m not trying to be a serious actor. I just want to do a good job,” he said, adding: “I feel there was a lot of, ‘Is this going to be good or not?’. I could see how a persona of what you do musically becomes embedded in people’s minds. But I feel like all I ever did on stage was act, in a way. I don’t feel like that’s exactly who I am. I don’t wear waistcoats when I’m at home.”
ON HIS MUSIC CAREER:
“[Music is] a part of my blood cells, my cellular being, but I don’t put music out just to do it.”
ON HIS CRUSH:
“Us American males are big fans of Pippa. We like the Middletons very much. I’m going to sound like a sleazeball. I’m going to stop right there!”
Really? I STILL to this day do NOT get the Pippa Middleton craze. Just because she’s attached to Kate and she is not ugly she’s getting all this attention? And that supposed ideal butt? Bitch, please.
