Justins of the world unite! Justin Timberlake may be releasing his first album since 2006, but thanks to the emergence of Justin Bieber in 2008, we didn’t have to wait too long before having a second pop star Justin on the scene. In the Biebs’ early days, Timberlake shared words of praise…and now it looks like X Factor mentor Justin Bieber is doing the same for his fellow Justin!
We’ve been impatiently waiting for Justin Timberlake to give up the acting thing and get back to music since…well, since his last album came out back in 2006. And finally, finally, we received the good news in the form of a post on JT’s Twitter page: “To whom it may concern…I think I’M READY.” This statement was accompanied by a link to a video in which Timberlake explained the reasoning behind his long absence from music. “I don’t want to put anything out that I feel like is anything I don’t love. You just don’t get that every day. You have to wait for it…I’m ready.”
Justin Bieber also thinks Timberlake is ready, not that the older and wiser Justin was asking for permission or anything. The Biebs offered his approval in the form of the following Twitter post: “@jtimberlake @Timbaland i have heard some stuff. u got a good reason to be ready. #greatmusic.”
Justin Timberlake’s new single is set for release in three days. We’re sure the Biebs will have plenty to say again when this much-hyped video is released.
Do you agree with Justin Bieber? Does Timberlake have “a good reason” for being ready? Or is there too much hype surrounding the release of his next album? Feel free to tell us what you think in the comments section below!
