In case you never realized it before, Justin Timberlake is a bit of a metrosexual. In the May issue of Details magazine, he opens up about his grooming rituals and admits he looked like a moron back in his 'NSync days. (See a ridiculous shot of Justin at :17 in the video below.)

"There were many moments in my teenage years where I succumbed to, um, the weirdness of the group I was in. And in trying to conform -- we're marionettes! -- I ended up looking like a moron," he admits. Today, he's not only improved his wardrobe, he also has a beauty regimen that would make any woman jealous. "Going to an actual barbershop -- the whole hot-towel, old-school experience. You sit there and get your hands massaged while getting a shave? Nothing wrong with that," he reveals.

He also dishes: "The one trick that works for me is to keep the mustache above the lip trimmed neater, so I really don't have to worry about the rest of it. That changes everything." And he's very particular about his dental hygiene. "I broke out my Sonicare two years ago, and my dentist is way more complimentary now. And some Crest Glide floss, with the Scope mint. You gotta clean your gums, man. Talking about it makes me want to floss right now."

But don't come near him with the hair gel. "When you use enough hair gel that your hair becomes a sculpture -- and you wanted it to look that way? It's just weird." Do you think Justin TImberlake looked like a "moron" back in his 'NSync days?

    Bit of a metrosexual, what ever that means, Sounds like he is rather pamperred and bet he doesn't have any calluses on his hands. I shave and shower and put on some Body Spray Deodorant so I don't stink like a skunk. DA THAT'S ALL FOLKS http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_1ZB...

    Not much different from his look today, however. Soooo, I guess he's still a moron?

    I can't believe he said that!!! OMG he was one of the reasons i loved NSYNC!!! US 90s girls would have been pissed if he had looked like he does now. (not that he's not gorgeous now;)

    Yep, so did most of us compared to where we are now, fashion wise. That's the way it goes - we create fashion so hideous we have to change it every season. If you embrace it once, chances are you will cringe later. I guess that is where the people who always like "the classics" win out. Their pictures are more moderate later =D

    Anybody who takes a look back 10 years would think the same of themselves. Justin Timberlake was THE "hottie" of that time, no matter how terrible it was, admit, you loved him too!

    I think he's adorable, either way...
    Times have changed, and with that comes changing fashions, ideas, haircuts, colours, and everything else. The past will always look ridiculous to people in the present.

    He just looks young and still discovering who he is and how he fits into this crazy world. He doesn't even look nerdy.
