Justin Timberlake has proven time and time again that it is totally possible for an artist to take extended breaks between dropping albums, and still have massive success when they decide to make a return to the music game. The singer’s current single “Suit & Tie” is a massive hit on the charts and it didn’t even matter that rapper Kanye West dissed the song on stage in one of his most recent rants. Of course Justin did find a way to clap back at Kanye during his recent Saturday Night Live performance, but it was clear that Justin doesn’t feel like hanging on to the drama and would rather focus his attention on his upcoming tour with rapper Jay-Z. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s managed to sell almost one million albums (968,000 copies) just the first week alone with his current album The 20/20 Experience.

Perhaps Justin Timberlake is still on cloud nine with such massive first week album sales and tour sales because the singer openly admitted in a recent interview with Myspace to his past drug use. While discussing his memories of attending the Coachella festival, he suggested some of his memories are fuzzy because he was high on “substances” at the time. After making his debut at the SXSW Festival, Justin says:

“This is my first time here. I’ve been to Coachella many times, on many different, um, substances.

“I’ve been to Coachella many times but not remembered a lot of it, I’ll leave it at that.

“Like, I stood in an open field and one year I saw Nine Inch Nails and the next year I saw Weezer and I was standing in the middle of the field, you know, like tripping my mind out.”


  1. Can’t say I’m shocked. Most celebs are on drugs these days. When you’re surrounded by a whole bunch of “yes” people, you’ll get on drugs eventually. Well, most people would anyway.

    1. And they say people can’t sell records. I think the correct sentence is White people and Beyonce can still sell records.
