Justin Timberlake Has the Greatest Walk In History
...and he's marching right back into the studio.
"Someone asked me the other day: 'so are you just done with music?'" Timberlake recalls at the opening of the video. "It means more to me than anybody else in the world," is his reply. Timberlake reasons in the short clip that his delayed absences from music are the symptom of being a perfectionist who loves and respects the craft so much that he can't even fathom making yearly compositions. He notes that his time lapses are in the neighborhood of five years - actually, his debut solo album Justified arrived in 2002 with the the groundbreaking follow-up FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006. That's four years. If his third solo album arrives in 2013, that will mark a seven-year absence from music.
His delay is understandable. Taking a marriage to Jessica Biel out of the equation, JT continued to build a film career while coming out of the closet as a comedian with his dick-in-a-box neatly at his waist. It's great to know the passion for music is still there, though. While rumors are swirling that he'll be working with Beyoncé, along with an upcoming single featuring Jay-Z, who knows what the next chapter in Justin Timberlake's career will really look like? We are now submerged head first into EDM, coming up for air to take in dubstep and a few boy bands. He'll either go against the grain and shun the former. Survey says he'll never again re-visit the latter. Whatever the case may be, let's have it JT.
