I was a giant fan of NSYNC. I mean, my room was decked out in all sorts of posters and anything that had the faces of Chris, Lance, Joey, JC, and Justin. I don't really remember being upset that they stopped making music (probably because I still have ALL of their albums and STILL listen to them). But, I was probably more upset that I never got to see them in concert.
I also have to admit that I was never a big fan of Justin as a solo act. Probably because my taste in music changed and I was no longer listening to pop, boy bands. My parents were most likely very happy about this. I just never listened to his stuff, not even Cry Me A River which, I admit, I only made fun of.
Then, JT was silent.
Then, I saw him in Trouble With The Curve.
And then came, The 20/20 Experience.
His first album in 7 years.
I have to admit that I wasn't a big fan of Suit & Tie when it first came out and was played ALL OVER the radio.
But, JT in a suit and tie? That's a different story.
And then I heard, Mirrors.
And I fell in love all over again. I decided to give the whole 20/20 album a chance and I have to admit, I like it. It took me a few listens of the whole album, but I think it's great.
So, you can imagine how excited I was when he was pretty much THE best thing to happen to the VMAs. (Not too mention the short, but sweet, reunion of our beloved NSYNC) And how Jimmy Fallon got to present a major award to his friend, JT. It was so much fun.
Anyways, all of this to say, that I am now a fan of JT, the solo act. I'm glad he's around and making music and films and making people laugh. I think he's great.
Oh, and how could I forget to mention that he is now married to another one of my favorites? Mary, from 7th Heaven anyone? Jessica Biel. And they are cute. Yes, it's true.
All that to say, that what I'm listening to right now is Justin Timberlake. I'll leave you with some of my favorites from the newest album(s).
What are you listening to?
