Here Are 10 Reasons (In GIF Form) Why Justin Timberlake Should Make Music Again

Then he made himself a legitimate actor by being very selective with movie roles and poking fun at himself on SNL. But as much of a quadruple (quintuple?) threat as he is, it’s interesting that he seems to need to take on his various projects one at a time.

Whereas other celebrities are in the studio recording their next album while also starring on a TV show or splitting time between the red carpet and the tour bus, JT comes across as very singleminded. With his movie Trouble With the Curve coming out tomorrow, of course people had to ask if he’s gonna be putting out another album anytime soon. After all, it’s been six years since SexyBack! But Justin was rather vague, telling the media, “For me, personally, when I do sit down and decide to do it, it’s just a special thing. I don’t know that I can pump [an album] out every year.”

While we agree that JT shouldn’t attach himself to awful Auto-Tuned singles just to get on the Billboard Top 100, we still miss his goofy, sexy, often outrageous music. (Come on, you remember when “I’m bringing sexy back” were the most ludicrous lyrics you’d heard all year.) So, here are ten reasons why Justin should lend his lovely voice to more than just a rendition of “Closing Time” in Friends with Benefits.

He always looks pleasantly surprised when he puts out a new song:

Even more than movie roles, his music videos let him play with different personas:

Why would JT stay away from something he obviously loves so much?

    Justin is just an overrated celebrity who uses britneys breakup and dating celebs to get ahead. His acting and singing voice sucks and I dont know why people are so fascinated with him he was in a boyband for god sake and he wasn’t even the best singer in the group.

    I agree, JT is overrated. I was only interested in his song Cry Me A River because the media said it was about Britney. Like JLO, she was a B rated actress until she dated P. Diddy, she has became A list celebrity since then.
