Justin Timberlake opens up about what his ex-girlfriend Jessica Biel means to him, his past relationship with Pop star Britney Spears (who he says he hasn’t talked to in “9 or 10 years”), and what it was like being a teenage superstar in the upcoming July 2011 issue of Vanity Fair Magazine. JT, who hasn’t released an album in 5 years, also spoke on the possibility of an upcoming album and revealed that he would like to only do one more “big tour” in his career.
Check out Justin’s quotes below:
On Jessica Biel:
“She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life… In my 30 years, she is the most special person.I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me—for instance, her. ”
On Britney Spears:
“I wish her the best – that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years…We were two birds of the same feather – small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense….I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”
On being a superstar at a young age:
“It was exciting that we were having so much success and we could do whatever we wanted. And I mean that about everybody: Backstreet Boys, ’NSync, Britney, Christina…At that time, we could literally go, ‘Oh, man, let’s go to Bali,’ and we’d be on a plane to Bali. We were little kids with big toys. Some very big toys. You do the math—that’s not going to last.Ryan [Gosling] and I used to steal golf carts and go driving in the middle of the park to get milk shakes, and we never got in trouble for it. We thought we were big shit.”
On touring and making new music:
“I wouldn’t say I’m not going to put out another album. I would say that would be a bad bet, if you were betting. But I could see myself only doing one more big tour.”
