In a Hollywood Reporter interview, Timberlake discussed his initial struggles adapting to fatherhood, and why 'NSYNC disintegrated so suddenly all those years ago.
The 36 year old singer became a father in April 2015 to son Silas, whom he shares with wife Jessica Biel. While he loves being a parent, he admitted in a new cover interview for The Hollywood Reporter that it took him several months to adjust to his new role.
“At first, it broke me down,” remembered Timberlake about the weight of responsibility. “Those first eight months felt like those old shows where people are balancing spinning plates on poles — except if you drop one, they die.”
All five members of the band came together for JC Chasez's 40th at The Nice Guy in Hollywood on Monday night.
Justin Timberlake joined in with a very special one-off reunion of the Backstreet Boys as the second oldest member of the band, JC Chasez, celebrated his 40th birthday on Monday (August 8th).
35 year old Timberlake had his phone on standby to snap a photo of the momentous event, uploaded it to Instagram the following day. He captioned it: “JC’s 40th… And, if you don’t know now you know…”

Tell us this isn't an April Fool...
If a horde of zombies attacked your town, who would you have thought would be most likely to come to your rescue? The Backstreet Boys probably don't make it on to your list, but this Spring such unlikely heroes will be saving the world from the undead in 'Dead 7'.

The album is also the first album to sell more than three million copies in a week in Nielsen history, and only the second to surpass two million sold in a single frame. It is also just the 20th album to sell at least a million copies in a week.

The awards usually provide someone with a boost, and this year was no different
It’s the same with any high-profile award ceremony; a spike in sales always welcomes the big-hitters. This year, Justin Timberlake’s reunification with the band that made him, Nsync, saw the band’s fortune rise just a little bit.
Justin Timberlake and NSYNC at the VMAs
Continue reading: So, What Have The MTV VMAs Done For Sales?
Ladies and gentlemen, we've been hoping since 2002. Finally, it came true at the VMAs.
Ok, the Miley Cyrus… thing happened and it’s unavoidable, but let’s focus on a positive side of the VMAs – the ‘N Sync reunion happened! After weeks of teasing, the prospect of a VMA performance by the boyband was wrought with more will-they-won’t-they tension than any given Sex and the City episode. And oh boy, did they ever.
Lance Bass expertly confused the media about the upcoming reunion.
For those of you, who missed it for whatever reason (we trust it was of vital importance) and don’t want to watch one of the many poor quality, not-entirely-legal recordings online, we’ll do a quick recap – a play by play, if you will. First we saw JT pop up on stage, in full suit and tie garb and with enough strobe lights to fit the occasion. Then, after a light solo from Mr. Timberlake, the rest of N Sync – Joey, JC, Lance and Chris, appeared in silhouette, before the band burst into a spot on rendition of their hit, Girlfriend, prompting cheers from the crowd (and from Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, watching intently from the front row.) Then the music moved smoothly into a remix of Bye Bye Bye, a personal favorite of many a 90s kid. The lads definitely proved that they can still not only harmonize like they used to, but they have the moves down pat as well.
N'Sync has twitter and will be performing at the MTV Video Music Awards tonight (25th August). But are the group reuniting?
N'Sync are performing tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards. A possibility of their reunion has been fuelled by their new Twitter account, one which links the pop group's singers together.

The group joined the social networking site yesterday (24th August) and have already gained over 120 000 followers. The group have tweeted once writing, "mic check, mic check one.. two... is this thing on?!"

Even Lance Bass himself can't quell the reunion rumours.
'N Sync reuniting at the MTV Video Music Awards. Well, 'N Sync might be reuniting at the MTV Video Music Awards. After the band reunited offstage in Miami to attend Justin Timberlake’s gig at the Sunlife Stadium, the internet went mad with rumours. As it usually happens, the good folk of Tumblr were at the front of the nostalgia-fuelled furor. Of course, Twitter wasn’t far behind either. However, rabid 'N Sync fans (hey, there’s no shame in it!) might want to cool their jets at this juncture.
Those sneaky 'N Sync guys might be planning a reunion in the very near future.
Everyone has almost forgotten Justin Timberlake’s 'N Sync days by now, so naturally this is the perfect time for a reunion – frosted tips hopefully not included. According to the New York Post, the former boyband will perform at the MTV VMAs in all their well-aged glory. So far, MTV has only announced a performance by Timberlake himself, however according to the Post, the one-time onstage reunion is being set up as a special surprise.
Maybe Justin won't be going solo this time.
While it won’t be much of a surprise now, what 90s kid wouldn’t love to see the band back together for once (just once, we’d like to specify). This according to an unnamed source and the news that on Friday, former bandmates J.C. Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick were all spotted in the VIP section of Timberlake’s Miami gig at Sun Life Stadium.
It's only been available to buy for a week but Taylor Swift's fourth album 'Red' has managed to sell over 1.2 million records, which makes it the highest first week sales of any album since Eminem's 'The Eminem Show' in 2002 (which sold over 1.3 million), reports Billboard.
She'll have to double that number with her next album if she ever wants to beat the artist at the top of the list; N*Sync who sold over 2.4 million records in the first week of 'No Strings Attached' in 2000. That year also saw the highest selling female artist, Britney Spears and her album 'Oops... I Did It Again!' Making Justin Timberlake (then a member of N*Sync) and Britney Spears, who were in a relationship at the time, the ultimate pop-power couple.
So, what makes a record tip over the 1-million in a week mark? Well, Swift had a range of publicity deals as well as an 'exclusive' deal with the US's store Target. Buying 'Red' from Target meant you got 6 bonus songs not available anywhere else. She also had a promotion with Papa John's pizzas who had her face as their main topping- covering their pizza boxes, they were also selling her album alongside pizzas at a discounted rate. Swift will be touring with this album alongside Ed Sheeran next year- no doubt when tickets go on sale then, she'll break some more records as has become a bit of a Swiftian tradition.
Taylor Swift's fourth studio album Red sold 1.2 million copies in its first week, the biggest debut sales since Eminem's 2002 record The Eminem Show, which sold 1.32 million copies. The current all-time debut-week sales record is still held by N-Sync, who set the mark in 2000 by shifting 2.4 million copies of No Strings Attached.
Nevertheless, Swift's feat is nothing to be scoffed at, especially in the current climate. As well as being her second straight album to top 1 million sales, Red's success means Taylor Swift is the only female artist to have successive albums sell 1 million since SoundScan started keeping track of things in 1991. Tweeting today, Swift told followers, "They just told me Red sold 1.2 million albums first week. How is this real life?! You are UNREAL. I love you so much. Thanks a million ;)" The country-turned-pop star is now behind only Britney Spears in terms of the biggest album debuts by a female artist. Spears' Oops! I Did It Again sold 1.32 million units in one week in 2000 (co-incidentally when she was dating N-Sync's Timberlake).
The release of Taylor Swift's Red comes after a clever marketing campaign that has seen fans of the country star able to snap up customized sneakers featuring her image. You could even get a pizza from Papa John's that featured Swift's image on the box.
