Justin Timberlake Breaks Down 'The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2'

Justin Timberlake described the sound of his highly-anticipated forthcoming LP The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2 during a recent chat with The New York Times' T Magazine. He undoubtedly piques the interest of his adoring fans and may raise an eyebrow or two with his description of the project he refers to as the,

“hotter, older evil twin sister” of “20/20". If you could imagine you’re 16 and she’s everything you thought. She’s Marilyn Monroe and then you meet her older sister; everything that’s dark and wrong about her at that age is why you become infatuated with her.”

With little else to go on at this point, it is clear that JT is still concerned with bringing sexy back. He also broke down his feelings about the gray area; the point between the absolutes of black and white where the true evolution and action of life actually occurs.

“You get to this point, which I’ve done in the last five or six years, where you become less worried about success and failure, I’m sure there’s some self-help cheese-ball book about the gray area,” he says, “but I’ve been having this conversation with my friends who are all about the same age and I’m saying, ‘Y’know, life doesn’t happen in black and white.’ The gray area is where you become an adult . . . the medium temperature, the gray area, the place between black and white. That’s the place where life happens.”
