10 Reasons Justin Timberlake Should Keep Making Music

Justin Timberlake is loving his new acting career. So much so that he says he doesn’t know if he wants to make another album. Like, ever. “I really don’t know,” he said when asked about it. “I wouldn’t say I’m not going to put out another one. But I would say that would be a bad bet, if you were betting.” Nooooooo!

Justin, I loved both Justified and FutureSex/LoveSounds. The prospect of no more JT original music, well, it scares me. After the jump 10 reasons you should keep making albums.

  1. Now that Michael Jackson is dead, we need someone on the scene—besides Usher—who can actually dance.
  2. Don’t you love being referred to in articles as a “triple threat”? “Single threat” just doesn’t sound as impressive, does it?
  3. Songs like “Cry Me a River” let you comment on your personal life without actually commenting on your personal life. Just think about how much you’d miss having that outlet.
  4. You singlehandedly made backs hot again with “Sexy Back.” Who’s going to stick up for forgotten body parts?
  5. If you give up music, critics will start judging you by actor standards. There won’t be anymore “surprisingly good for a pop star” reviews.
  6. We need you to do more videos with famous friends, like “What Goes Around” with Scarlett Johansson, so that we can speculate about whether you are hooking up or not.
  7. Bottom line: singing and dancing is how we first got to know you. You don’t want to forget your roots, do you?
  8. You gotta maintain your skills in case your career ever takes a nosedive and you’re forced to do a MeN*Sync tour. Yes, I’m imaging Menudo and N*Sync on tour together a la NKOTBSB.
  9. Because if the future of male pop stars is Justin Bieber, well, I’m outta here.
  10. Not so many guys in pop music have a good falsetto. It’s your responsibility to rep for the high notes.

If nothing else, maybe you can at least write a song for one of the movies you’re in?
