At 30, Justin Timberlake’s Career Continues to Rise

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – He’s ascended to the highest ranks of music and pop culture, but now at the age of 30, Millington native Justin Timberlake shows no signs his career is peaking.

It could have been dismissed as one of the cuddly cute child performances you’d expect from an entrant chosen in Memphis for the wildly popular pre-American Idol talent extravaganza known as “Star Search.” Except young Justin Randall, as he was known then, a pre-teen, showed the kind of poise even older performers could only dream of having. Now 30 years old, Justin Timberlake is the embodiment of an old entertainment tradition self-molded into a versatile 21st century superstar performer.

“[It's] that kind of all around entertainer that we were used to seeing, 25, 30, 40 years ago, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and I think for Timberlake that serves him well having that kind of… well, having that kind of background,” observed Commercial Appeal music critic Bob Mehr. “I also the way he comes across, there’s a kind of ease with his celebrity.”

With millions in record sales, sold out concert tours, acclaimed television appearances either as a host or guest, movie roles, his own record label, his own clothing line, the Millington native turns toward the second decade of his entertainment career near the top of the heap. He’s done it by shrewdly mixing his own entertainment savvy with a grasp on the pulse of every aspect of technology and the social network it’s created worldwide.

“I think that Justin has come up with a way to pull today’s current internet technology and social media into the older model of the CD release and the big record deal,” said Ralph Sutton, a music producer with the Stax Foundation.

“He always seems like everything he does is the right move,” added John Hornyak, Executive Director for Memphis NARAS. “It’s always really hip with the new music he comes with or the things he associates himself with, the movie roles he takes.”

But, music pundits warn any comparisons of Timberlake at 30 to say, Elvis, who at 30 had reached his movie peak with the movie release Viva Las Vegas the year before, or Jerry Lee Lewis who at 30 was finding his name more on the country rather than rock charts, would be an apples to oranges debate of styles and times.

However, it’s sustaining through the ups and downs his predecessors experienced which may provide Timberlake with valuable lessons on career longevity.

“The perception of Elvis and Jerry Lee having sort of gone down, but then they came back up. I think it’s different. It’s important to maintain a level. I think it’s important to do that,” said Mehr.

“Somebody with a skill set like Justin Timberlake, he’s going to be able to do both. He’ll be able to be a good executive and then he’ll also continue to be a really good entertainer,” said Sutton.

SAG Awards 2011 Seating Assignments

On the evening of Jan. 19, EW exclusively went where no press outlet had been been before: to the meeting where Screen Actors Guild Awards producers decided who sits where during the glitzy show, airing live on TBS and TNT this Sunday, Jan. 30. EW watched the SAG team figure out where to put 716 folks (mostly large, boldfaced casts from the nominated movies and TV shows) on the ballroom floor of the Shrine Exposition Center. How do they decide where everyone sits? “We try to be fair,” explains producer Kathy Connell. “If people were all the way in the back last year, we’re going to try to move them up this year. And vice versa.” Here are some tidbits from the night’s decisions:

• The Social Network: With a star-studded cast — Jessie Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Rooney Mara, Max Minghella, and Justin Timberlake — Network gets a prime spot right up front, to the left of the stage. Producers decided to put presenter and SNL alum Amy Poehler at the same table so she could be near fave SNL host Timberlake. Minghella is attending with actress Kate Mara (127 Hours), sister of Network‘s Rooney Mara.

For a full breakdown of where the stars will be sitting at this Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards — including deets on where Natalie Portman and her Black Swan cohorts will be, and why Mariska Hargitay, Hilary Swank, and Hugh Laurie are all sitting together — pick up the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands Friday, Jan. 28. (The SAG Awards will be simulcast live on TBS and TNT at 8 p.m. ET.)

Justin on Jessie J’s debut album ?

Jessie J

Jessie J is a british singer/songwriter who worked with Justin last year on tracks from her debut album “Who you are” set to be released on April 12.

The tracklisting for the album was recently revealed and by the looks of it, it doesn’t feature a collaboration with Justin, BUT the video below hints he will probably have a cameo in one of the songs.

Check her out working with producer James Fauntleroy at the 5:39 mark on a song where Justin is  “trying to move your a$$ girl”.



This song sounds very hot. Hopefully it make the cut on the album. Thanks mistertimberlakejustin for finding the video
