Justin Timberlake Says He Looked 'Like a Moron' Back in His 'N Sync Days: Did He?

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?

    At that time, he looked just like any other boy band members in the whole music industry... I actually couldn't tell him apart from the others (or didn't care to) up until he started his solo career.

    The real problem with being in a boy band is allowing yourself to be a tool for some producers who aren't going to allow you to do anything other than what they tell you to do.

    If people are dressing you up like a trained monkey and make you sing and dance to their songs, it's not just what you are wearing that makes you look stupid.

    Everyone thinks that. I used to look at papers from when I was younger and think of how stupid I was. Like, "how couldn't you spell squirrel right?" It's just how it is. If you don't look back and find something wrong, then there is something wrong.

    Every decade that goes by has its own fashion. In 20-30 years we will look back at skinny jeans and the hipster trend now and think the exact same thing Justin thinks about his 90's look.

    Oh he looked like any other kid his age. We all look back at photos of ourselves and say "What in the hell was I thinking?!" We are always our own worst critics. He was cute then and he is cute now.
