hey kids! here’s one more quick post but a good one! it’s the always adorable justin timberlake gracing the latest cover of DETAILS magazine (april) which lands on newsstands in NY & LA today and next week goes nationwide! check out some of the choice quotes from mr. timberlake on a variety of topics – gosh he’s so cute – i love him! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
on the tabloids: “i despise what they do. they create soap operas out of people’s lives. [cameron and i] had our thing, and it’s over. they edit that stuff like mtv edits reality shows. it’s a spin game, and i choose not to take part in it.”
on being considered the new king of pop: “i tried so hard to be an r&b artist [with first solo album justified] and it was the pop album of the year, and i was like, ‘fuck. that’s the last thing i wanted but i was like, ‘so everyone considers me a pop artist? well, fuck it. i’m going to do whatever i want to do.”
on surviving the boy-band apocalypse and becoming a man: “i could give you a bunch of analogies about why i’m still around that would sound like hippie self-help bullshit. ‘i saw an opportunity and i took it?’ fuck you. sure, there’s a lot of luck involved. but on some level i have to believe in my ability. and i’m not apologizing to anyone. i worked fucking hard to get here.”
on being used by the grammys for ratings: “i’m the nice guy who follows through on the things he commits to. but i don’t know if i’ll be going through that sort of thing again. i feel like the grammys used me for ratings. and look at it-they were up 18 percent.”
