Justin Timberlake has denied rumours that he has sidelined his pop career for a new life in films.
Timberlake recently appeared in the Cameron Diaz movie Bad Teacher, and also has the lead in new sci-fi thriller In Time, sparking a number of reports that he has turned his back on music for a favoured career in film instead.
Talking to Radio 1, Timberlake replied “I really don’t put anything on the backburner,” when asked if he had done that with music.
“I go from project to project and if something comes up that’s inspiring and feels like it makes sense and is authentic to me then I’m just going to try and continue to be inspired.”
Timberlake’s last album release was back in 2006, and although he has recently expressed a wish to work with Brit George Michael, he has also been linked to the Coen Brothers’ new film, and stated his desire to star in a musical someday.
Seems like he’s a busy boy indeed.
