Justin Timberlake covers the latest issue of T Magazine, the New York Times’ style publication. The singer transforms into a brooding fashion icon, while talking about his career and how he’s managed to stay relevant across generations, without giving up his art.
“You get to this point, which I’ve done in the last five or six years, where you become less worried about success and failure,” Timberlake tells the magazine of his latest album, “The 20/20 Experience“. “I’m sure there’s some self-help cheese-ball book about the gray area, but I’ve been having this conversation with my friends who are all about the same age and I’m saying, ‘Y’know, life doesn’t happen in black and white.’ The gray area is where you become an adult . . . the medium temperature, the gray area, the place between black and white. That’s the place where life happens.”
After going on something of a music hiatus for the better part of the last decade, Timberlake rejoined the music industry earlier this year, and has even more in store for fans when he releases “The 20/20 Experience Part 2″.
Timberlake calls the new album the “hotter, older evil twin sister,” to the album he released in March of this year.
“If you could imagine you’re 16 and she’s everything you thought. She’s Marilyn Monroe and then you meet her older sister; everything that’s dark and wrong about her at that age is why you become infatuated with her.”
