Justin Timberlake was born on January 31, 1981 in Memphis, Tennessee to Randall Timberlake and Lynn Harless. Justin grew up in the small town of Millington, Tennessee. He has one sister, Laura, and two half-brothers, Jonathan and Steven.
In 1993, he joined The Mickey Mouse Club, along with future singing stars Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and future 'N Sync band member JC Chasez.
After the Mickey Mouse Club ended in 1995, Timberlake formed a boy band in Orlando, Florida with aforementioned JC Chasez, friend Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Jason Watkins (later replaced by Lance Bass) called 'N Sync. The group had a strong fan following in the '90s until the early '00s. They went on to produce five albums, which each made a large amount of money. The band decided to take a break in 2002.
Not long after, he decided to pursue a solo career with his debut album, Justified, which sold 439,000 copies in it's first week, and later 7 million worldwide. Timberlake has since started his own clothing line called William Rast , opened up a couple restaurants called Chi, and acted. In 2006, Justin came out with his second solo album, called FutureSex/LoveSounds, with his debut hit, Sexyback - his most successful song to date. The album featured another hit called My Love.
He also will star in a number of films, such as Alpha Dog, Black Snake Moan, Richard Kelly's Southland Tales, and Shrek the Third, with his former girlfriend Cameron Diez, who he's been dating since 2003, when they met at the Nickelodeon's Kid Choice Awards during a burping contest. Timberlake plans on staying in the music industry, and continuing his singing career. Timberlake has been nominated for 7 Grammy Awards, winning only 2 of them (not including the 4 nominations for the 2007 Grammy Awards).
