The salient points

  • When Justin Randall Timberlake was a child he co-presented The Mickey Mouse Club with some people you may have heard of, namely Christina Aguilera and future 'sweetheart' Britney Spears.
  • He went on to become the face, voice and hair of globe-straddling boyband *NSYNC who released a handful of very amazing singles including this one.
  • Around the release of 'Justified' - his Neptunes and Timbaland-produced debut solo album - the UK press started calling him "trousersnake" for reasons we're too innocent to understand.
  • (It was something to do with his penis.)
  • He touched Kylie Minogue's bottom once.
  • In 2006 he brought "sexy back" and not a moment too soon.
  • His amazingness is summed up succinctly in these 9 minutes and 22 seconds.
  • He's a big fan of golf and serious acting.
  • In fact he enjoyed acting so much that he bid the music world a cheery "fuck off" and decided to do films full time.
  • But then in 2013 he came back to music (HURRAH) and released his first single in six years, 'Suit & Tie' (BOO).
  • Luckily this was followed by 'Mirrors', which is an undeniable feast of amazingness.
  • The rest of 'The 20/20 Experience' was a bit patchy and overly long, but overall it was nice to have him back.
