Pop superstar Justin Timberlake "despises" celebrity magazines who follow his personal relationships and turn them into a public soap opera.
Timberlake has had two high-profile romances, with singer Britney Spears and actress Cameron Diaz, and hates the way his private life is portrayed in the media.
He tells US magazine Details, "I despise what they do. They create soap operas out of people's lives.
"It's a spin game, and I choose not to take part in it."
And Timberlake insists he will never talk publicly about a past girlfriend.
He adds, "I would never say anything bad about anyone. I love a lot of those people."
