What good is going to a music festival if you don’t go to a music festival high? Psshhh. I wouldn’t know. But only because I’ve never been to a real music festival. Justin Timberlake has, though! He’s attended Coachella a few times, and he’s gotten pretty high more than a few times. So I guess this is the part where people act equal parts outraged and “Yeah! Right on!”
“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. But I remember I used to go to Coachella a long time ago. I remember Coachella when there wasn’t, like, paparazzi and stuff there. 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.”
I’m guessing he’s talking about substances other than marijuana, otherwise I’ve smoked some pretty tame weed in my time. But this isn’t the first time TimberCakes has admitted using drugs (if you count marijuana as a serious drug, in which case… get that stick out of your ass, man).
Apparently, his album The 20/20 Experience is filled with marijuana references. During a 2009 interview with Playboy, JT explained that, like most musicians, weed helps him relax and get to a place of creative genius:
“The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high.”
And some people get really hyper, paranoid and giggly. And you want to punch them, but you’re just too relaxed to really care. I mean, so I’ve heard.
Let’s just hope he keeps it clean if he’s starring in Annie. That could potentially get unnecessarily creepy.
