Justin Timberlake’s New Music Will Lean Heavily On Black Artists, Again

Justin TimberlakeFrom the GQ archive: To celebrate the release of his new movies, Friends With Benefits and Bad Teacher, we’re publishing our exclusive interview with Justin Timberlake online for the first time. It was 2011. Headline-friendly couple Biel and Timberlake — who each rose to fame in their respective acting and music careers in the 90s — had been together four years when the break-up statement dropped.


Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were both asked this week how they knew they were each other’s “person,” the one they want to spend their life with. Their responses were touching.

During the first round of the tournament, Timberlake showed that hoodies can be golf-appropriate in a Greyson midlayer paired with light pants and ultra-cool Nike golf shoes. He topped the outfit off with a 1990s-inspired Imperial cap from the new DNA Project collection. The shoes are not available for purchase at this time, but the rest of his outfit is easy to replicate for a casual-yet-stylish golf look. The key to pulling off a non-traditional golf piece like a hoodie is to make sure the entire outfit is tailored to a good fit, and accessories are kept simple to avoid any clashing themes.

So what about Britney? I tell him that his Brit Award video acceptance speech where he warned revellers to “Stop drinking! You know who you are. I’m speaking to you,” has been spun by a British tabloid as a coded message to the out-of-control hard-partying Britney. “Oh my God, I didn’t even know anything about this.” This time he seems less defensive and more exhausted at what he must feel is the continual idiocy of this supposed relationship with Britney. “Honestly, I am so far removed from that situation. A coded message to Britney?” Shaking his head while sipping his freshly pressed orange juice, Timberlake’s mood switches to one of sheer disbelief. It’s clear he truly loathes talking about Britney.

Singer Justin Timberlake was accosted Tuesday while arriving at the Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week with his wife, actor Jessica Biel. Singer Justin Timberlake got his start on ‘The New Mickey Mouse Club’ and made it big with boy band NSYNC, before becoming a solo singer and actor.

Eventually the various parties agreed to install The Song Lab, with Timberlake, Levi’s and other leading music companies and manufacturers (including Gibson, Guitar Center, Gibson, Native Instruments, Shure, Universal Audio, and Korg) donating state-of-the-art equipment and gear. Though a figure was not officially confirmed, the value of the lab is estimated to be in excess of $200,000.

After the huge success of this album, accompanied by a worldwide sell out tour, JT decided to take a break from music to pursue his acting career. Apart from the huge single ‘4 Minutes’, in which he collaborated with the legendary Madonna, Timberlake took a large step back from the industry. During the time he starred in box office hits including ‘Bad Teacher’, ‘Friends With Benefits’ and ‘The Love Guru’ whilst establishing himself as a style icon worldwide.

Following the incredible success thus far of Justin Timberlake’s global The Man Of The Woods Tour, Live Nation has confirmed an additional Phoenix show on November 29 at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

Addressing the media speculation regarding Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s relationship, we are confirming that they mutually have decided to part ways,” the statement released to People read.

The Millington-born pop star and the San Francisco-based clothing company recently added Memphis and Stax to the roster of institutions benefiting from the Levi’s Music Project, donating a songwriting lab to the South Memphis music school.

At every U.S. stop on The Man Of The Woods Tour there will be a VIP Verizon Up section, putting customers up close and personal to the stage and JT. Verizon Up, the company’s loyalty program, is all about thanking customers through everyday rewards and exclusive experiences, like getting closer to the artists they love – including Justin Timberlake.

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Justin Timberlake reveals that he has new music with Lizzo, SZA, and Meek Mill on the way. It’s a huge shift from the wilderness aesthetic he donned for Man of the Woods, but after the backlash following his previous album , the man who fashioned his career off traditionally Black music like R&B and soul, is returning to collaborate with some of hip-hop’s boldest voices. It isn’t the first time in his nearly 20 years as a solo act that Timberlake stands to gain credence from his proximity to Black artists. But it’s surprising he’s pivoting back to Blackness so quickly, especially given the way he marketed his last album.

Just because you’re an A-list star or fashion model doesn’t mean you’re immune to pranksters. Just ask Justin Timberlake and Gigi Hadid – who both recently had to deal with Paris Fashion Week crashers.

Timberlake has been here rehearsing since 8am, and as he decompresses backstage I take time to walk the labyrinth of tunnels carved out behind the fields of hard plastic seating. Although it’s obvious guests have made at least some effort in the wardrobe department, the sparkle of the hired-out penguin suits and Vera Wang frocks is completely lost among the armfuls of sweaty cheeseburgers, deep-pan pizzas and tubs of Diet Coke everyone seems to be slurping from. Caught up in the fast-food melee, I get the feeling the top brass of the entire music industry was on its way to a bells’n’baubles dinner at Mr Chow’s but then decided to take a diversion to a college ball game instead. Even with my golden VIP ticket, the Grammys feel about as glamorous as a Jackass movie trailer.

Timberlake was born in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1981. His first attempts at singing was on the TV show Star Search. He performed under the name of Justin Randall and sang country songs. In 1993, he joined the cast of The Mickey Mouse Club, along with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Two years later, he joined ‘N Sync and became an international superstar.

Man of the Woods may have been marketed with southern aesthetics, but helmed, as it was, by frequent collaborators like Pharrell and Timbaland, it was as influenced by the sounds of Blackness as Timberlake’s music had always been, save for the presence of a Chris Stapleton feature where a Jay-Z or T.I. would typically have been. His decision to market the album with the kind of symbolism (like the perceived masculinity of the outdoors ) usually associated with whiteness is enough to raise the question: why is he going back now, and specifically with artists as unapologetically Black as Lizzo, SZA, and Meek Mill? As anticipated as this new music may be, it’s hard to see past what it means for Timberlake, or any artist, to pick and choose when they want to participate in Black culture.Justin Timberlake

The evening marked the launch of the 12-piece Levi’s x Justin Timberlake fall-winter 2019 Fresh Leaves collection (the musician’s third collaborative capsule line) featuring new takes on his signature hooded shirts, trucker jackets, cargo pants and a reversible down vest ($78-$380) with plaids and an orange camouflage pattern in the mix.

Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk , who describes himself on Instagram as an “Entertainment Hollywood Reporter,” grabbed Timberlake’s right leg as he approached the show, held in the courtyard of the Louvre. Security guards quickly pulled Sediuk away, and Timberlake and Biel appeared to laugh off the incident as they continued walking.

Justin Timberlake has recently been busy working on new music, but he’s also found time to help launch a songwriting lab at the Memphis Stax Music Academy. The actor-musician and the Levi’s Music Project have announced plans to install the lab to help students foster their songwriting talents. Not only that, but he’s debuted a new fall capsule collection with the fashion brand.
