Justin Timberlake

Pop Rocks


The cliché applies: Women want to date him; men want to be him. Justin Timberlake can do no wrong. Written off in his ’N Sync days as just another pretty-faced boy-bander, Timber­lake has craftily turned himself into a superstar—arguably the biggest male performer out there thanks to his second solo effort, FutureSex/LoveSounds, in 2006. Yet before anyone can pigeonhole him, he’s on the move: pop star, actor, designer, producer, record exec. His musical collaborations are just as forward-thinking—50 Cent one song, Duran Duran the next, and throw in a little Nelly Furtado. While men—stars or not—can only dream of the women Timberlake has seduced (Britney, Cameron, Jessica B.), they can at least rip a page from his style handbook: classic suits almost always worn with a tie and sneakers. Timberlake’s brought sexy back, and fun too.
