Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Father-of-one and former boybander Justin Timberlake opened up about fatherhood and why he left ‘NSync in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

‘NSync broke up early 2000s and Timberlake’s main reason for leaving the group was because he was growing out of it. He added, “I felt like I cared more about the music than some of the other people in the group. And I felt like I had other music I wanted to make and that I needed to follow my heart.” The other members of the boy band are Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez , Joey Fatone , and Lance Bass. The group went on a hiatus in 2002 but never regrouped.

After the hiatus, Timberlake wrote and recorded his debut album called “Justified.” He also made his solo performance during the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards.

The singer also talked about the first time that he got chased by teenager girls. Timberlake said he was around 15 or 16 years old and gave a concert in Germany during a festival. He added that they were in the tour bus when he looked out the window and saw these girls running after the bus.

As for fatherhood, Timberlake said that his new song “Can’t Stop the Feeling” is for his son and his wife, Jessica Biel. Their son, Silas, is now two years old.

More on being a father, he said, "You go through your life with your own traumas, big and small, and think, 'It's not that bad, I have a lot to be thankful for, my parents did the best they could.' But then you have a child of your own, and suddenly it opens all the floodgates, and you're like, 'No, no, no! That childhood trauma really did f— me up!'"

Timberlake continued to say that the adjustments regarding work and life as a father was difficult. The first eight months was very difficult as he did not know what to do. As for his son following his footsteps, he answered, “I haven’t been able to answer that question in my mind. If he wanted it bad enough, I suppose I could teach him a lot about what not to do."

He also revealed that he is not yet sure if the coming years will be spent on movie sets or on tour buses. He said that doing many shows is debilitating. He also got a little bit political as he said that the post-election jitters has affected him as to his second thoughts regarding doing movie or touring.
