"The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking,” the Bad Teacher star explains. “Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high.”

High or not, Timberlake says he’s ready to slow down and chill. “I feel I’m just getting to a point in my life where I’m looking around, going, There’s a lot to enjoy if I can just sit still, actually stop and take more time.”

Part of that time out means no new music on the immediate horizon for the platinum-selling singer. “I don’t have a single song ready to go,” admits the star, who hasn’t released an album since 2006 smash FutureSex/LoveSounds. “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.”

This is why drugs are bad.

Honestly, I can't blame him. The guy does a lot of stuff. And you know what? He's a good actor, so I'm okay with him taking a break from music for a while.

I don't know what Pot has to do with it. It is not like he has not been productive in the mean time. He has just shifted his focus.

Yeah, he shifted his focus from "making awesome music" to "smoking drugs".

When you reach a level of super celebrity like Timberlake, I always find it odd that they never take like six months off and just bask in it. Spend a shit ton of money, travel the world (Which I guess already happens when you're on tour but still), take a load off.

Or maybe he just decided to shift his focus like Jason said. Since 2006 he has been in Alpha Dog, Black Snake Moan, Shrek the Third, Southland Tales, The Love Guru, The Open Road, The Social Network, Yogi Bear; in 2011 he's been working on Bad Teacher, Friends with Benefits and In Time. I guess I could see how you would rather he force out some new music that he doesn't really want to work on instead though :p

I think most of the world would agree that 90% of that was a waste of time.

It takes a certain kind of personality to attain that though. You don't normally turn it off just because you got there. You normally see the next peak, and want to go there too.

FutureSex/LoveSounds was a rad album. I haven't heard all of Justified but there are definitely some cool songs on there too. I would much rather hear new JTLake songs than see him in some rom-com. He was good in The Social Network, though.

I don't think Steve is saying that it is a hard drug. He is saying weed makes you ok with doing nothing. He wants Timberlake to make some more music.

I remember hearing an interview on NPR with him around the time Social Network came out and he sounded like he wasn't interested in music. Something along the lines of him feeling like he wasn't super talented at anything and if he didn't do too much of one thing no one would notice.

In his defense, I believe he did the McDonald's commercial in between "Justified" and "FutureSexLoveSounds".

Deep down I think Justin just wants to be a cast member on SNL. But if you're going to hang on that show you're going to have to graduate from pot to blow.

And it's not just the next peak in terms of success, it's in terms of artistic and personal goals, as well. I highly doubt he sees any of his movies as a waste of time because he most likely learned something new about the acting craft and working on a film set and with different directors with each ones. He'll then take those things learned and use them to make his performance in his next film better, ect. He obviously loves acting, that's why he keeps doing it, so I see nothing wrong with someone doing what they love. Power to him.

You know what Steve, the more I think about it, any perceived problem that pot created must have already been there. In fact, I have never even seen Justin smoke pot. For all I know he could say he is smoking because it is cool to do so. Now this guy below? I know he has smoked pot and that did not stop him from working hard.

The white guy who got fucked out of his 3some by Justin Timberlake was the best. The girl who had considered jerking of to Justin Bieber before realizing he was too young was a close runner up.

On a more serious note, how did this video get made without consulting Steve?
