PUBLIC OPINION > Justin Timberlake's Return to Music Is Fantastic

Music 2012/05/24 22:00:00
Justin Timberlake has been absent from the music biz for quite some time now. After his 2006 Grammy-winning sophomore album, he moved on to film and television, where he was met with a good deal of success, but fans have been wondering when he'll come back to his first love. Well, the time has come. The former 'NSYNC singer is recording the soundtrack for "The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea," starring his fiancée Jessica Biel. We asked the public if his return is anticipated.

Believe it or not, Mr. 'NSYNC has quite a few fans. Nearly two-thirds of respondents are excited to have him back. Yes, he did come from a made-to-sell boy band from the '90s, but as it turns out, he's a remarkable musician in his own right. He can sing, he can write, he can produce -- and that's just music. Some still equate him with other bubble gum acts, but they were a minority. Most people agree the guy's got talent.

Men Don't Like Him Very Much

Male voters don't particularly dislike him, but the majority of support definitely came from females. They were 24% more likely than men to express excitement over Timberlake's return to music. However, it should be a testament to his talent that nearly half of the male vote was for him, given that he started out on the same level as Justin Bieber.

Only Popular With the Youth

He may be talented, but that doesn't mean his music is for everyone. Timberlake fans were relatively common up through the mid-40s, but after that there was a huge drop in support. When 'NSYNC blew up, it was 1998, when 45-year-olds were about 31. Basically, most people who were too young to have kids who were into 'NSYNC are down with JT's music. He probably also won over some older fans with his "SNL" appearances.

Conservatives Don't Care

Timberlake doesn't particularly involve himself with politics, but there was still a pretty big divide between conservative and liberal votes. It could be related to age, but the political margin was even wider than the age gap -- liberals were 51% more likely than conservatives to look forward to Timberlake's return.

    JT is a "fallen angel" to me. A personality with so much potential though he never reaches it, be it music or acting.

    I think he can do so much better, I see that flair in him.

    I do love JT. But it's a soundtrack. I want a whole new album with a different sound. He has gone through a lot of experience since then. So come on man get to that studio.

    My opinion of him in any way is : Yuck!
  • tobe 2012/05/25 00:12:46
    he's alright as an actor but as a musician I've got that boy band scar tissued into my brain as far as timberlake goes. he was mediocre in black snake moan, he was alright in social network. i would have liked him more in social network if it weren't for being distracted by all the makeup they used to make him look younger.
