The nearly-five-year wait for a followup to 2006′s FutureSex/LoveSounds may finally be over.
Justin Timberlake (a.k.a. the Wondrous Singing Booger, or should we say … Banksy?) told EW on last night’s Oscars red carpet: “I have not retired from music.” Though, he admits, “I am unemployed right now and that is very dangerous. It gets hard to motivate yourself to do anything besides golf.”
For more details on when and how he’ll be returning to the studio, see our piece in this Friday’s print magazine.
This is BIG news The Oscars who ?
I’ll get to rolling around in bed with Mila Kunis, but first I gotta tell yo that Justin Timberlake is bringing his music back.
The star of The Social Network just told me he’s getting ready to start recording new tunes.
“I think I may spend some time in the studio this summer,” J.T. said on the red carpet.
And he has a very good reason to do it.
“I’m unemployed right now,” said Timberlake, who looked awesome in Tom Ford. “I haven’t been hired for anything so I may hire myself to write some music…It’s right around the corner.”
As for that movie career, he has three flicks coming out, including Friends With Benefits with Ms. Kunis.
No surprise, I asked Timberlake what it was like shooting sex scenes with the Black Swan beauty.
“That’s an easy thing to do,” he said. “I think I could speak for all the men in the world when I say that’s the easy part.
“Honestly, it was a golden opportunity to find a lot of humor that maybe hasn’t been portayed in film—in bed and on film,” he continued. “We found a lot of jokes. We had a two-week block where we had interiors every day and it was all sex jokes.”
Work, work, work…

Stay tuned for more updates!
The brilliant Topman Ctrl is back for 2011 with a new TV show hosted by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens. Super talented lady Jessie J was filming down at the event last night where she revealed she is currently writing songs for Justin Timberlake. The talented lady also said she had written a song for Britney Spears but it had been scrapped at the last minute.
Britney, what are you playing at? Don’t you know how good Jessie is?!
Jessie J wrote Party in the USA for Miley Cyrus and originally wrote Do It Like A Dude for Rihanna, though she kept that for herself.
She’s also lined up a potential collaboration with Drake by simply walking straight up to the rapper at an event they were both at. She’s hoping her mega ballsy approach sealed the deal. She told BBC Newsbeat, “I think he is phenomenal – I went to see his show twice when he was here. Everyone else was just like tiptoeing around and I was like, ‘Bruv, you’re number one, I’m number two, do you mind swapping for at least a week?’ He turned and looked at me, and I was like, ‘Yeah?’”
Talented, confident and in demand. Drake, pull your finger out and get working with this girl!
What do you think she’ll write for Timberlake, sexy ballad or funked up pop extravaganza?
