Seeing Justin Timberlake at the mic on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night really brought light to the fact that he hasn’t had a new album out in FOUR YEARS!
Four years! Totally crazy since he was once one of the biggest names in pop music.
So, is Justin done with music forever?
Justin sat down to talk about his plans with Entertainment Weekly, so here’s what’s up:
“Does a painter make a painting because he has to make it by December 21st?”
“No, he doesn’t. It happens when it pours out of him. That’s how music is for me…”
Justin, whose new movie ‘The Social Network‘ opens tomorrow, says he likes to play the entertainment field:
“I grew up in a generation that was like, ‘why not do everything?’”
“I grew up in a family where they said, ‘Why do everything if you have the opportunity?’”
True, but why deny your musical talent? Justin is one of music’s most talented — hands down.
“I never stop making music,”
“I don’t know what else to tell you, except that I just don’t know [in] what capacity I want to be involved anymore.”
Hmmm. Fingers crossed that we’ll get some of that underground stuff sooner or later.
I think Justin is the type of artist who can make an impact no matter how long he dabbles outside of the music box, fortunately.
Good for him for maintaining what’s important– quality work!
