JT is in Paris promoting his new "club funk" sound. He did an interview with MTV to discuss the direction of his new album. What I like about JT (besides the fact that I am a sucker for a POP star) is that he really seems to take his career seriously. He is always passionate about whatever it is he is working on. We always look forward to anything JT may be doing in the future, including marrying Cameron. MTV reports:
Timberlake modeled himself after David Bowie and Prince, and describes "SexyBack" as Bowie and David Byrne covering James Brown's "Sex Machine." "That's the closest I could come," he said. "That's all of my influences for that song."
"SexyBack" doesn't qualify as rock or straight funk — and for now, Timberlake's happy with the description "club funk."
"I like that," he said. "Anything that I do and anything Timbaland does is going to be funky. That's a rule of thumb. And that's how the song got started, going more dance rock, club funk. There are people out there pushing the boundaries of music; Gnarls Barkley, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, they always push themselves. The most you can hope for is music that pushes your sound as much as they push theirs."
He could not be more right about The Red hot Chili Peppers. Their latest album is surprisingly amazing. Lots more images of JT putting on a show so
