The Evolution of Justin Timberlake
by Rachel Devitt | September 30, 2013
Once upon a time, there was a cute, curly-headed kid from Memphis who wanted to be a star. So he tried a little bit of everything: competing on Star Search, landing a spot on The Mickey Mouse Club and, ultimately, hitting the big time with a boy band that went on to become one of the most beloved and definitive representatives of its genre (admit it: that reunion was the highlight of the 2013 VMAs). But he still knew he wanted to try to do more. So he went solo -- and became one of the biggest pop stars of his generation. This is his story, as told by Mr. Timberlake himself in a playlist of his best, his brightest, his most beloved songs, from 'NSYNC to "TKO."
