Biography: Justin Randall Timberlake ("Justin"), born January 31, 1981 is high-spirited from Memphis, Tennessee, and the youngest member of 'N SYNC. He has has been performing since he was seven years old. He loves to sing and dance and is quite the comedian. (He will do just about anything for a laugh!) He began his professional career at the age of 12 when he landed a spot on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club ("MMC"), where he also acquired a love for acting. This blonde haired, blue eyed, Aquarian (January 31) also loves sports, especially basketball. He is 6'0" and growing.
Justin says that his best quality is making people laugh and that his most prized possession is his voice, but you can bet that he wouldn't part with his autographed SHAQ jersey. Justin is a huge basketball fan and the Orlando Magic is his favorite team. Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway (who is also from Memphis) is his favorite basketball player. "I watched Penny come up through the ranks at the University of Memphis, so I was a big fan of his before he came to play for the Magic," says Justin.
Justin's favorite singer is Brian McKnight. "It was such a great thrill to get to meet Brian when he came to do a guest spot on MMC. He has the most amazing voice and I admire him so much. He is a very cool guy!"
When he's not singing or going to school, Justin loves shooting hoops and in-line skating. He is still in high school but he is fast tracking through an independent study program specifically designed for performers and competitive athletes. "It's hard to make myself study when the other guys are hangin' out and having fun, but I want to finish school as soon as possible so I can focus my full attention on my entertainment career," says Justin.
Justin loves to be on stage. "I love that feeling when you're up there singing and the crowd is getting into what you're doing. I love to see the smiles on their faces and know that I had something to do with that."
