Justin Timberlake: Fatherhood “Changes Everything” (VIDEO)
Justin Timberlake discussed music, fatherhood, and his new movie during an interview on Tuesday’s “Today” show. He noted being a dad “changes everything” he does, including his music. Watch the video below!
Timberlake collaborated with award-winning director Jonathan Demme to produce the Netflix concert film, “Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids,” which begins airing on Wednesday documents his 20/20 Experience World Tour. The star revealed he was nervous about the release of the film, which followed his every move. “You’re always nervous about going to a premier,” admitted Timberlake, who explained to “Today” show anchor Willie Geist, but “this isn’t [like] hiding behind a character.” “It’s just that moment when you’re like, other people are going to see this,” added Timberlake. “There’s something personal about the way Jonathan captured us, [and] the people I shared the stage with were so important to me.”
When asked about his musical journey, Timberlake confessed he thinks about it “every day,” noting the “imperfections are the best part, because that’s what you’re going to remember the most.” Geist then told the singer and actor that Demme referred to him as a “funky Frank Sinatra… if he could dance, too.” “He said that?!” responded Timberlake.
Naturally, Geist asked Timberlake if being a father has altered his writing style and the way he looks at music. “It changes everything,” acknowledged Timberlake. “You literally just wake up and look in the mirror and go, ‘I have no idea what I’m doing.'” Timberlake pointed out that his hit song, “Can’t Stop The Feeling, was “directly inspired to be something my son could listen to, because there’s a lot of music [he] can’t listen to.”
