Singer and actor Justin Timberlake has been talking about the effects that fame has had on his life, claiming that it has led to many people coming in and out of his life. Justin says that all of the things around him began to change, which led to people believing that it was actually him who had changed, which was not the case.
During a conversation with Rolling Stone magazine, Timberlake explained, “The older you get, the more you realise people come in and out of your life and you realise that person changed or that person wasn't exactly who I thought they were.”
He added, “And I found with friends, close friends that have come and gone in my life, they're like, 'Oh, you changed.' Everything else around you changed, you're still the same person. If you want to say that I didn't have to worry about a paparazzi following me around in my car has made me change, then yeah, sorry, I've changed, but I didn't know what that was like before.”
Justin continued, “I was just a young person trying to express myself. It's just a crazy world that we live in. I don't want to paint a picture that's jaded or anything because I'm super happy to be back and doing it and I have a great time wherever I go. But the things around you change the older you get and that's just life.”
Justin Timberlake took a rather extended break from his music career, in which time, he has gone on to prove himself as a very accomplished actor, appearing in a number of impressive roles. Justin has now returned to his singing career but he still has a number of movie projects lined up. Timberlake can next be seen on the big screen in the movie Runner, Runner, which is released on September 27.
