Today*s Star: Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake is a man of many hats: Singer-songwriter, actor, businessman and all around entertainer! I think Justin is most creative in the recording studio. He's said it himself, music is his first passion.

Born in Memphis, Justin appeared on television shows like Star Search and The Mickey Mouse Club as a kid. His ticket to fame of course was becoming the lead singer of that boy band we loved, 'Nsync! The group formed in the mid-late 90's and sold more than 50 million albums worldwide throughout their career. Cool fact about 'Nsync- they became the third best-selling boy band in history. In 2002 they went on a hiatus, and later that year Justin kept forward momentum with his career by releasing his debut solo album Justified You remember that album..the one with "Cry Me A River." I personally loved that that track won a Grammy. That album was proof that Justin could have a successful solo career. It went on to sell over 3 million copies and hit the number 2 spot on the Billboard 200 charts.

In 2006 Justin released his second studio album, Future Sex/Love Sounds. It was just as successful with hit singles like "Sexy Back" and "What Goes Around..Comes Around." He took a hiatus from his music career from 2007-2012 and pursued acting. Two words: Alpha Dog. I admit, I mainly went to see that movie because Justin was shown shirtless. I know i'm not the only one!

Moving on.. Justin has done just about everything. He took on double duty as performer & host for SNL, he was Ellen's very first guest for her talk show..Has acted in several movies such as: Friends With Benefits, Bad Teacher, The Social Network and his latest-Runner Runner. JT even has his own tequila available! If you can handle that stuff it's called 901.

As you know, he released 2 albums for us this year- The 20/20 Experience 1 and 2. JT said he came up with the name of the albums simply from him and Timbaland writing 20 songs in 20 days. A successful, married man in the biz Justin couldn't be happier these days. He just kicked off his 20/20 Experience tour and played at the XL center last night. Did you go?!
