Dear Justin Timberlake,
Can I call you JT? I ask you this only because I feel like I’ve known you for so long now. As a fan of your musical talent very early on, since back when you were a lead singer of N’Sync with curly blonde hair and interesting fashion taste, it saddened me when you took a leave of absence from the music scene. While I might have enjoyed your work in movies and television, I longed for new tunes from you, giving us that typical JT style, matching hard beats with soft lyrics. It had been a while and although they never got old, my iPod only had hits like “Summer Love” and “Bringing Sexy Back.” And let’s face it, I was in middle school then.
But then, almost out of thin air you popped back on the scene and I must say, it was about time! JT, if you could see me right now, I am standing up at my desk – laptop in front of me – giving you a round of applause for your work on 20/20 Experience. My goodness, it must’ve been like you were reading my mind, as well of the minds of your others fans, and in that instant the heavens opened up and rained magic notes of “Pusher Love Girl” and “Mirrors.” I admit, I was a little worried when I heard the songs were over 3 minutes long, but don’t worry, I fell in love with every second. The thing that we all admire, is that regardless of time, you’ve stuck to your same style. I can always count on your go-to guy, Timbaland being right behind you. And I know I’m going to get a variety of hits that make me want to get up and dance or ones that make me want to put cell phone light on and wave it back and forth.
It’s been a hell of a ride JT. And with the release of the second part to 20/20 and the unbelievable performance at the VMA’s you have definitely made 2013 a year to remember.
This letter sort of turned into fan mail, which I know you probably get a significant amount of. But in the off chance you ever stumble upon this, I just wanted to let you know to keep up the good work. Besides Beyoncé, there aren’t too many people who can make it this far coming from a background in the Mickey Mouse Club and boy bands. I’m not sure what’s next for you, but I know that I’ll have to buckle up because what ever happens next will definitely be crazy.
P.S. Tell Jessica Biel she is one lucky lady
