Justin Timberlake has stepped back into the public eye as one of the stars of Social Network, but when will the singer leave the movie set for the music studio?
The singer is playing coy about returning to the pop world, hinting to Entertainment Weekly that he’s frustrated with the pressures and time limits placed on him by music executives.
“Does a painter make a painting because he has to make it by December 21st? No, he doesn’t,” says Justin. “It happens when it pours out of him. That’s how music is for me….”
When asked if it’s wise to wait too long between albums, as Christina Aguilera did. Justin replies, “If you’re asking me, no. I never stop making music. I don’t know what else to tell you, except that I just don’t know [in] what capacity I want to be involved anymore.”
So is he retiring from making music? “No. All I’m saying is, in very simple terms, I’ll know when I know. And until I know, I don’t know,” says an enigmatic Justin.
