Today*s Star- Justin Timberlake

 Have you ever heard someone say anything bad about Justin Timberlake? I don’t think I have. The man is liked by many people and not only for his musical talents, but for his philanthropy, his acting career, his comedy, and just for the fact that he’s a really nice guy at the end of the day. If you were a child of the 90’s, then you probably grew up knowing “JT” from the boy band N*SYNC. He was the de facto leading man of that group so it was only a natural career move when he decided to pursue music as a solo artist.

 

Justin Timberlake has been performing since he was a little kid. He grew up doing the Mickey Mouse Club, alongside other famous people: Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Ryan Gosling. Fun fact- Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake were actually roommates at one point. Justin released his first solo album in 2002, and his status as a solo act just took off. He is a man of many trades and just keeps evolving. I think that’s what makes him a good artist, in general. He took about a 5 year break after the release of his 2006 album, and came back with not only one, but two new albums in 2013. 

 Justin toured for about a year and a half after releasing those two albums and he became a father. It's no surprise Justin is taking a step away from the spotlight to focus on his family, but there are rumors that he wants to host the Oscars next year!
