At a recent MySpace event, Justin Timberlake had this to say about new music…

“You’re the ones that stopped talking about me as a musician,” Justin said when asked by MTV’s Kara Warner if we’d be hearing more about his musical side. “You guys act like I said I retired. Movies take time!” He continued: “I can tell you this: when I’m ready to say something, you always know I say it in the biggest way possible. But I’m just not the type of artist that feels like…you know. it really comes from the heart…Music, for me, is the thing that comes most natural to me. And I just don’t take it for granted. But when it’s time for me to say something…” he trailed off. “That’s all I can tell you. And for me, I’m not dumb. I hear what people say. And it obviously doesn’t bother me, I’m really patient. But I can tell you – it’s not about them. It comes from a pure place. If anything, I’m honoring it in the best way I know how. When it’s time, I’ll be ready. I’m not less inspired, or I didn’t give up. Until I have something to say, I was taught to keep your mouth shut. That’s the way my mother raised me.”

Okay everybody, let’s just Leave Justin Alone…for now.
