Speaking exclusively to rock bible ROLLING STONE, who named the singer one of their People of The Year, Timberlake reveals he isn't planning an 'N SYNC reunion anytime soon.
His remarks conflict with those of bandmate Lance Bass, who revealed to fans late last month (NOV03) he was penning new tracks for the next 'N SYNC album.
But Justin says, "I think that whole time I was living in some small shape of oblivion. I thought, 'They're just putting that teen-pop label on us because they don't understand.' I look back now and realise that that's exactly what it was.
"I've had some of the greatest experiences with those guys, but do I think that what I've done with JUSTIFIED is 10 times better than anything 'N SYNC has ever done? Yes I do."
