Justin Biography

Born January 31, 1981, Justin Timberlake has easily become the most popular individual of all the 'boy bands'. Even from his childhood days, the popular singer from Memphis, Tennessee was performing. His first television appearance was on Star Search, and then as in most of his younger days, he sang country. His big break came in 1992 when he spent two years in Orlando with Disney's Mickey Mouse Club. On MMC he had the opportunity to showcase his talent with future bandmate Joshua Scott Chasez, Christina Aguilera, and rumored love interest Britney Spears. He returned home after that two year stint but his desire to perform brought him back to Orlando. From there the two joined forces with Pittsburgh native Chris Kirkpatrick and New Yorker Joey Fatone. Later the group added Lance Bass to create 'N Sync (now called *NSYNC after their lawsuit settlement). Today they are on top of the world, having sold more albums in their first week with No Strings Attached than any artists ever, though Timberlake thinks respect is more important than sales, saying "Call us what you want. Call us the first real boy band, if you want. Just don't disrespect the fact that we're musicians. We're not just trying to sell T-shirts, you know?"
