Looks like Justin Timberlake is ready to return to music again, which means my inner teen girl self is fangliring-the-hell-out of my office, flying to the clouds and chanting my fave JT lyrics over and over.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?!
Okay, now that that’s done let’s hypothesize. Justin sent out an elusive tweet this morning (Jan. 10) proclaiming his readiness for… something. #JT2013 quickly started trending on Twitter.
He attached a link to an elusive YouTube video on his Tumblr page, featuring shots of him walking to a recording studio, talking about why the time to make music is now. He says in the video:
Someone asked me the other day ‘So are you just done with music?’ It means more to me than anybody else in the world. Look, I’ve only done two albums in 10 years, that’s the way I really look at it. What does the next decade mean for me? I’m the one who sits and is obsessive about it before you even get to hear it. As close as I get to it, I don’t know if I could physically torture myself that much year in and year out and expect it to fulfill me the way that it does and the way that it is right now. I don’t want to put anything out that I feel is something I don’t love. You just don’t get that everyday, you have to wait for it.
After his monologue, the spotlight comes on for the zinger: “I’M READY.”
We’re totally ready too JT! It’s been over six years since the release of his iconic album FutureSex/LoveSounds — far too long. There’s also a countdown on his official website, which ends Sunday at midnight. Perhaps we’ll get a single? Considering he recently got married to actress Jessica Biel, I’m hoping for some mega-romance and lovey dovey tracks.
Whatever it is, we’re sure it will be epic. Even Justin Bieber tweeted about it: “@jtimberlake @Timbaland i have heard some stuff. u got a good reason to be ready. #greatmusic”
What do you hope to hear?
