Watch Justin’s super-weird ‘announcement’ about his upcoming project! You excited?
Music lovers rejoice! Prince of Pop Justin Timberlake is cranking out a new album in 2013, which he confirmed Jan. 10 with a though-provoking video posted to his official website. (Seriously, it’s even nuttier than that Brad Pitt cologne commercial.) “I’ve only done two albums in 10 years,” JT says in the video, as he walks into a studio. “What does the next decade mean for me?”
“I don’t want to put anything out that I feel is something I don’t love,” he continues. “You just don’t get that every day. You have to wait for it. … I’m ready.”
Justin, 31, originally stirred up a fan frenzy Jan. 9 with a cryptic tweet alluding to his big release.
“Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST…” he tweeted to his more-than-15 million followers.
Fans reacted in their usual classy manner, with responses like “BONER!” so you know they were all very excited for his announcement — especially since we haven’t gotten a new album from the former *NSYNC-er since 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds.
What Has Justin Been Up To Since ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds?’
Good question! Mr. Timberlake has remained a busy little beaver since the release of his latest studio album, though his focus hasn’t exactly been in the studio.
Justin has mainly flexed his acting muscles with leading roles in a number of films, which ranged from very good (The Social Network) to literally unwatchable (The Love Guru).
He also brought sexy back to the small screen with guest appearances on The Cleveland Show (as a singing booger) and Saturday Night Live (four words: “dick in a box.”)
Of course, his most important project came in Oct. 2012 when he made an honest woman out of girlfriend Jessica Biel. The couple said “I do” during a romantic wedding in Italy, surrounded by family and friends.
