As you all know, Justin Timberlake gave up singing in the end of 2009 after having gotten a taste for acting. These last few years he has spent some hard work on relaunching himself as an actor and more recently as a rapper in the band FreeSol, but now he has apparently decided to quit everything all together! Justin recently told Esquire magazine that he wants to step out of the spotlight indefinitely so he can in his own words, "travel and be spontaneous."
Justin said, “I think you can work and work and work and never really live. The plan is to have no plan. I’ll probably travel, but I’d rather be spontaneous. I feel like I’ve earned at least a little bit of time to do that…
There were times I was motivated by the fact I wanted to be the biggest music star in the world. Maybe it wasn’t a conscious thought, but it was an underlying theme. I’ve spent a lot of time feeling like I needed to validate so much of who I was by what I did.
After I turned 30 I started asking myself questions why… The only validation I crave now is to be inspired in the same way I’ve always been. That’s all I really owe myself at this point. If I stopped now, I could look at everything I’ve done and be so proud.”
Do you support Justin's decision to leave showbiz, or do you think that it's way too soon for him to be retiring? Personally, we would have preferred for his cute face to stick around a little longer!
