Justin Timberlake, born Justin Randall Timberlake is a multi-talented actor, musician, performer, and member of hit boy band group ‘N Sync.
Justin was born on January 31, 1981 in good ole Memphis, Tennessee where he would live until 1993 (age 12), when he infamously joined the Mickey Mouse Club. The Mickey Mouse Club was responsible for launching the careers of many other musicians and actors / actresses including JC Chasez, Ryan Gosling, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and many more! In 1995, after the Mickey Mouse Club had officially ended, Justin Timberlake reached out to fellow Club-member JC Chasez to ask if he was interested in forming a group. This group, under the guidance of Lou Pearlman would eventually come to be known as the world-famous ‘N Sync.

This is when things got really crazy for a then young Justin, as he saw his career blossom and grow incredibly fast. The group, which formed in 1995 was already touring Europe in 1996. By 1998 after releasing their debut album ‘N Sync, the group went on to sell 10 million copies in its first year alone. This album and follow-up tour is also one of the reasons N’ Sync has now become the #3 top-selling boy-band group of all time.
From 1995 until their initial hiatus in 2002 ‘N Sync continued to make many more records, three full studio albums, and four world-wide tours. When ‘N Sync took its hiatus in 2002, Justin Timberlake began constructing a project of his own to launch his all new solo career.
