Justin Timberlake: ‘Some people are just better high’

Former N*Sync man praises smoking pot

Justin Timberlake has praised smoking weed as a means for relaxation.

Speaking to Playboy, the former N*Sync member said that the drug helped him to clear his mind.

When asked if he smoked marijuana he said: “Absolutely,” before adding, “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.”


Timberlake, who was promoting his film Bad Teacher said that he was not thinking about making music again.

“I don’t have a single song ready to go,” he said. “People keep asking me when a new song or album is coming out, and I don’t know what to say. Music is not my focus right now. It may be someday. It could happen next month or next year, but right now it’s not where it’s at for me.”

His last album was 2006’s ’FutureSex/LoveSounds’.

The singer also had some career advice for Lady Gaga. He said: “I’d love to see her come out with another record a couple of years from now that’s completely different, maybe something Tori Amos could do.

“If I were Lady Gaga, I’d do whatever I wanted, which it looks like she’s doing. She’s just plain old good. But I don’t know what the future holds for her. Her sound is so big. She’s got the outfits and she shocks you, but you kind of wonder how an act that big stays around forever. That’s why I’m curious to see her mix it up a little. I think she’ll continue to make interesting music.”
