Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Justin: My mother, I don't know how pregnant she was with me, but I know that she did a 10-year reunion recital with the people she used to take dance class with. I always joke around that my dance lesson was in the womb. I know that she used to say that. My father used to play in a band, and she used to say that I'd just sit there and bounce. I got my voice from my father.

    • Justin: (admitting he was so nervous when he met Michael Jordan, he wet himself) When I was young... I wanted to be Michael Jordan. It was weird, I heard (Gary Wright song) Dreamweaver in my head when he walked in the room. He was like, 'Hey man, my kids and I, we're big fans of your music,' and I was like, 'That's cool...' Up until the point where he walked away and I realised I had peed a little.

    • Justin: (upset that he is not recognised for the popularity of trucker caps) It's funny, I keep hearing Ashton Kutcher say how he was responsible for trucker caps. Me and my friend Trace Ayala were wearing them when we were seventeen.

    • Justin: Sexy, to me, is the way you carry what you have. I have a big nose, but I rock it.

    • Justin: (on hosting the 2008 ESPYs) I'm very excited to be hosting the 16th edition of The ESPYs. I can't wait for the day of the show as I'm truly a sports junkie. Since the last ESPYs, there have been amazing moments in sports and I'm looking forward to recapping all of them with ESPN's diehard fans.

    • Justin: (on inducting the Material Girl into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.) The world is full of Madonna wannabes. I might have even dated a couple. But there is truly only one Madonna.

    • Justin: I can play my music for millions of people, but I can't hit a golf ball in front of 20.

    • Justin: Christina Aguilera had that same voice when she was ten... She is, in my opinion, the best singer of my generation.

    • Justin: (On releasing his first solo album, JUSTIFIED) I have a little anxiety about doing this on my own, a little bit of a broken heart.

    • Justin: (on his and Britney's relationship) It was actually easier when people knew that me and Britney were together.

    • Justin: There's nothing wrong with shooting for the stars.

    • Justin: I'm not in this for the money because if I was, I would have jumped out after our first album.

    • Justin: There's nothing I've done that my mother doesn't know about.

    • Justin: (on his longevity) I could give you a bunch of analogies about why I'm still around that would sound like hippie self-help bullsh*t. I saw an opportunity and I took it. Sure there's a lot of luck involved. But on some level I have to believe in my ability. And I'm not apologising to anyone. I worked f**king hard to get here.

    • Justin: I grew up in Tennessee where you either play football or you don't do anything at all so I was a bit of a loner being interested in music. I was not cool. It was football or die! I would come to school, and was bit of an outcast but I wasn't bullied too much, thank God. But if I could say one thing to the kids who didn't think I was cool back then it would be, 'Eat it.'

    • Justin: I've had a good share of the spotlight. I don't feel I need too much of it right now. I want to write country music, because I grew up in Tennessee, and soul music.

    • Justin: (on his sex scene with Christina Ricci in "Black Snake Moan") The sex scene was pretty hot. I'm not going to say it doesn't feel weird pretending to f**k someone in front of a man with a sound boom, though.

    • Justin: (on celebrity magazines) I despise what they do. They create soap operas out of people's lives. ... It's a spin game, and I choose not to take part in it.

    • Justin: I've had girls pop out of hotel closets. It scared the s**t out of me. That was in my teenage days. Teenage girls are pretty crazy. Actually, no - older women are crazy too!

    • Justin: I was always removed from the whole idol thing. I cared so much about what I did that stuff didn't register. My parents instilled in me the mindset of always being humble, so I'd like to believe that all the teen idol stuff went in one ear and out of the other.

    • Justin: When I was 10 my stepfather bought me some shares in Wal-Mart. It was my first lesson in money. He taught me the right way to spend and save. I like nice things but when I'm in a store, I usually talk myself out of buying anything.

    • Justin & Cameron: (a joint statement released in January 2007) It has always been our preference not to comment on the status of our relationship, but, out of respect for the time we've spent together, we feel compelled to do so now, in light of recent speculation and the number of inaccurate stories that are being reported by the media. We have, in fact, ended our romantic relationship and have done so mutually and as friends, with continued love and respect for one another.

    • Justin: Love is the basis of everything. First you have good chemistry, and then you fall in love.

    • Justin: I don't like to have a bunch of people around me. My formula is to keep everything simple.

    • Justin: (On his and partner Trace Ayala's new clothing line) I love the way my grandfather looks--the way he stands up straight, with the respect that he's owed... Our grandfathers wear their clothes with dignity. And he would give me the shirt off his back, so I thought, we should just make him one.

    • Justin: Every relationship I've been in, I've overwhelmed the girl. They just can't handle all the love.

    • Justin: I had really awkward hair and terrible skin and I was really scrawny, I looked like a broccolini, not even a broccoli. I was long and skinny and my hair blossomed out on the top--I was a rally weird-looking kid.

    • Justin: I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but I'm getting itchy to be back on tour. I'm determined to find a way to juggle both careers.

    • Justin: Gossip is called gossip because it's not always the truth.

    • Justin: I've had bottles thrown at me--glass bottles full of piss--and I've had girls run on stage and try to tear my clothes off.

    • Justin: Everyone wants to know about my spirituality, and it's like, 'That's mine!'

    • Justin: I try to be humble about everything. I'm definitely blessed. I don't know how to analyse success, but I'm happy.

    • Justin: (on his best friend, Trace) We've been friends my whole life. A lot of people tell me everything is great, but Trace will tell me the truth. I admire that he's never changed who he is.

    • Justin: (on people changing when he became famous) I've seen people change. It's great if someone likes my music, but it doesn't mean they have to like me as a person, or the other way around.

    • Justin: (on getting drunk) I'm not going to hide it, but I'm not going to get belligerent and punch someone either.

    • Justin: (on pressure to be a role model) I don't think it's my job to be a role model. I think people look up to me, so if I do things that I wouldn't want younger kids to do I will do those things in private.

    • Justin: (the craziest fan experience he's had) I've had girls pop out of hotel closets and it scared the shit out of me. That was more in my teenage days, and teenage girls are crazy.

    • Justin: (on his mother asking for grandkids) I told her to adopt another kid from Ethiopia. [laughs]

    • Justin: (on why he won't buy an iPod) I'm technologically challenged. It's enough work having to shave!

    Like I said,modern music sucks these days. However,not all modern music is bad. I do like a bit of Modern pop music. And this guy is basically one of the best pop stars these days. Justin Timberlake isn't the greatest artist ever,but he is still a good singer. He got his start in Mickey Mouse Club because well,a lot of celebrities got their start from there. He then was in Nsync,and he was good in there too. Now,he is a solo artist who actually can sing. Unlike the other Justin (Cough* Bieber),he actually has great music. Some of his songs like What Goes Around Comes Back Around and My Love are great. But not only can he sing,he can act. I thought he was great in The Social Network,and he was great voicing Boo-Boo from Yogi Bear and Artie from Shrek the Third. Overall,Justin Timberlake is a great person,and is better than a lot of terrible artists these days.moreless
