No More Tours For JT?
Pop superstar Justin Timberlake says he’ll probably quit touring for good after one final global trek.
The singer-actor last hit the road for the FutureSex/LoveShow tour, spending almost all of 2007 performing across the globe.
He has since taken a step back from his music to concentrate on his acting career. Timberlake has yet to start working on a follow-up album to 2006’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds” and, although he hasn’t given up on music altogether, he says he can’t imagine touring for much longer since turning 30 in January.
Asked whether he plans to release another album soon, he tells Vanity Fair, “I really don’t know. I wouldn’t say I’m not going to put out another one. I would say that would be a bad bet, if you were betting. But I could see myself only doing one more big tour.”
Timberlake is currently enjoying a rare long break in his schedule and says he’s enjoying doing nothing because it gives him the space to do whatever he wants.
He says, “Right now, I’m not in the mood to work. I want to not have a schedule. I want to go to the Dodgers game if I feel like it. ‘Hey, do you guys want to play basketball today? Cool, let’s do that.’ I’ve never really given myself the opportunity to be spontaneous. I figure I can go on like this until the end of the year. I don’t have anything I have to do. The only job I have to do is promote the films that are coming out, and I’m really looking forward to that. It will be fun. I’ll get to go to a bunch of countries, hang out.”
