Biography
Justin Timberlake was a member of the popular 1990s boy band, 'N Sync, and was considered a teen idol. The group formed in 1995 and started their carreer 1996 in Germany and hit it big in the States two years later in 1998, eventually releasing the fastest-selling album of all time, No Strings Attached in 2000. In 2002, after the completion of their Celebrity Tour and release of "Girlfriend", the third single from their 2001 album Celebrity, the group decided to take time off, at which point Timberlake began work on his first solo album. He hoped the album would shed him of his squeaky-clean boyband image in favor of a sexier, more mature look and sound. Around this same time, in March of 2002, Timberlake split from long-time girlfriend and fellow popstar Britney Spears.

On August 29, 2002, after months of recording the album, Timberlake gave a performace at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, where he premiered his first single, "Like I Love You." The song became a hit, reaching #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following the successful release of the single, Timberlake released his debut solo album, Justified, on November 5, 2002. The album was also a success, despite selling considerably less than previous 'N Sync efforts. It debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 album chart, selling 439,000 copies in its first week of release. It eventually went on to sell over 3.5 million copies in the U.S. and over 7 million copies worldwide. The album spun off hits throughout late 2002 and 2003, including the top ten singles "Cry Me A River" and "Rock Your Body". Timberlake supported the album by co-headling the Justified/Stripped Tour with Christina Aguilera in the summer of 2003.

In February 2004, during the halftime show of the Super Bowl XXXVIII, Timberlake performed with Janet Jackson before a television audience of over 140 million viewers. At the end of the performance, Timberlake tore off a part of Jackson's black leather costume in a "costume reveal" meant to accompany a portion of the song lyrics, "gonna have you naked by the end of this song". Part of the costume became detached, and Jackson's breast was briefly exposed. Timberlake apologized for the incident saying that he was "sorry that anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance of the Super Bowl... It was not intentional and is regrettable". The phrase "wardrobe malfunction" has since been used by the media to refer to the incident and has entered pop culture.

As a result of the controversy, Timberlake and Jackson were banned from the 2004 Grammy Awards unless they agreed to apologize on screen at the event. Jackson declined. Timberlake attended and issued a scripted apology while accepting the first of two Grammy Awards he received that night (Best Pop Vocal Album for Justified and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Cry Me A River"). He had also been nominated for Album of the Year for Justified, Record of the Year for "Cry Me A River", and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Where Is The Love?" with The Black Eyed Peas.

He released his second solo album FutureSex/LoveSounds, on September 12th. The album debuted in the number one position on the Billboard chart, selling 684,000 copies its first week. Producers on the album are Timbaland, will.i.am, Rick Rubin, Da Young 1, and Timberlake himself, features guest vocals by Three 6 Mafia, T.I. and will.i.am. The lead single, "SexyBack", began receiving radio and Internet play on July 7, 2006. It shot to number 1 on August 31, making it his most successful single to date. "My Love" is his second single release. It is also produced by Timbaland and features the rapper T.I. He performed the track as the opening performance at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.

In 2007, Timberlake won two Grammy Awards for songs on his FutureSex/LoveSounds album: "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration Rap" (My Love (with T.I.)) and "Best Dance Recording Dance" (SexyBack).

In February 2008, Timberlake was awarded 2 Grammy Awards. At the 50th Grammy Awards Ceremony, Timberlake won the Male Pop Performance Award for "What Goes Around,Comes Around", and the Dance Recording Award for "LoveStoned/I Think She Knows".

Timberlake and his production team The Y's, along with Mike Elizondo, produced and co-wrote the song "Don't Let Me Down" for Leona Lewis's second studio album, Echo, released (in the US) on November 17, 2009.

Timberlake also co-wrote and performed on "Carry Out", the third single from Timbaland's album Shock Value II, released on December 1, 2009.

From 2010, Timberlake increased his acting work. He played Sean Parker, the founder of Napster, in the acclaimed film The Social Network (2010). He also appeared at the 2010 MTV VMAs on Sept. 12, 2010.

In 2011, he starred alongside Cameron Diaz in Bad Teacher and then alongside Mila Kunis in Friends with Benefits, and played Will Salas, the protogantist of In Time, a science fiction film by Andrew Niccol. He directed and made a cameo in the Free Sol music video "Hoodies On, Hats Low" which was released in August 2011.

On October 7, RCA Music Group announced it was disbanding Jive Records along with Arista Records and J Records. With the shutdown, Timberlake (and all other artists previously signed to these three labels) will release his future material on the RCA Records brand.
