Justin Timberlake’s New Book ‘Hindsight’ Details His Rise to Fame

Justin Timberlake may be used to putting his thoughts into lyrics, but in his new book, the singer is putting pen to paper, revealing some of the biggest moments — and missteps — from his career.

Out this Tuesday in bookstores and online, “Hindsight: & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me” is a collection of anecdotes and reflections that touch on Timberlake’s rise to fame, his celebrity friends, and how he’s juggling his constant search for perfection with his role as a husband and father. Mixed in throughout the book are hundreds of candid images from the singer and actor’s personal archives.

“These are my memories, these are my thoughts in the middle of the night, these are the images I see as I close my eyes to go to sleep, [and] these are the stories I will tell my son as he grows,” Timberlake writes in the introduction to the book.

Coming in at just under 300 pages, “Hindsight” is less an autobiography or memoir as it is a curated personal scrapbook of observations, memories, and photographs. Timberlake’s editor, Elizabeth Sullivan, calls it, “experiential” and says “it’s a highly designed mix of stories, memories, musings, and personal images. You can open it up anywhere and read a vignette or look at a series of photographs or wild graphics. But in the end, the elements come together to create an exciting portrait of an artist and human being.”

One of the more telling passages captures the drama behind the scenes as Timberlake was writing his hit song, “Cry Me a River” (long rumored to have been about his ex-girlfriend, Britney Spears). Then just a 21-year-old on the cusp of releasing his first solo album, Timberlake says he finished the song in two hours because he had “been scorned” and “been pissed off.” “The feelings I had were so strong I had to write it,” he says. “People heard me and they understood it because we’ve all been there.”

Known for his Southern-bred charm and charisma, Timberlake is using the book to reveal a different side of him: one that has “struggled,” in his words, “to find an inner calm and strength.” Speaking candidly about his high-profile relationships and new fatherhood, Timberlake says he’s been working to identify the things that make him tick, in order to block out distractions and re-focus his attention on the things that matter. “With hindsight, I can see that, of course, I’ve made mistakes along the way.” But, he writes, “I find courage in the idea that our mistakes can empower us. Big or small, the moments we create lead us forward, over a new threshold.”

Though he started out as a teen heartthrob, Timberlake says, “it’s no longer just about me. I have a wife (actress Jessica Biel), a child — a family. It’s terrifying. It’s invigorating. It’s more meaningful than anything I’ve ever been a part of.”

The book does feature moments of levity as well. Timberlake dedicates a section of the book to his friendship with Jimmy Fallon, calling the “Tonight Show” host not only a great collaborator, but a close friend. “We’re nonstop when we’re together,” Timberlake writes, in a page subtitled “Bros Being Bros.” “We just take turns being fire and kerosene.”

For her part, Biel, Timberlake says, calls his relationship with Fallon the “fastest game of ping-pong she’s ever seen, almost impossible to keep up with.”

In a video posted to Instagram this week, Timberlake shared his excitement about the book launch and teased a special section about the making of his viral hit, “D— in a Box.” Fans of the multi-hyphenate can also expect stories from some his favorite roles on TV and in film (including “The Social Network” and “Friends With Benefits“), along with backstage photos from his concert tours and performances.

“Hindsight: & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me” will be released on Oct. 30 on hardcoverthough Harper Collins. It’s already shot to No. 1 on the Amazon best-sellers list. The new book arrives on the heels of Timberlake’s clothing collaboration with Levi’s, “Fresh Leaves,” which hit stores and online earlier this month. The “Say Something” singer is also wrapping up his “Man of the Woods” tour, which finishes its run at the end of January.

Cleveland review

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Wanna know how words get made up? Go to a Justin Timberlake show.

When the former Mousketeer’s “Man of the Woods” tour stopped at Quicken Loans ArenaTuesday night, it wasn’t quite a concert. There was way too much dancing and theatrics for that.

But it wasn’t quite a dance recital or a revue, either. There was way too much singing for that.

What to do? What to do?

Ah, here we go: The two-hour sensory blitzkrieg, featuring a serpentine stage that spanned the width of The Q floor, laser lights and a stunning collection of musicians, was a “concital.”

That’s never going to get past Merriam Webster or the even tougher judges, copy editors at The Plain Dealer. But dang it, that’s what it was.

The gifted Timberlake has the moves of Michael Jackson, the charisma of Cary Grant and the aww shucks of Mickey Rooney’s Andy Hardy. Not that anyone from this era knows who that is. Look it up, you whippersnappers. It’s the truth

Justin Timberlake Brings Us Into The Woods

My earliest memory of music came in 1998. My sister and I watched rising boy band Nsync perform on the Disney channel; the performance that brought them to stardom. From that day forward, I was hooked on Justin Timberlake.

I believe Justin Timberlake is the modern king of pop. You haven’t seen anything until you have seen JT destroy the stage. Say what you will about his most recent album, Man of the Woods, but this man knows how to perform.

Timberlake is no stranger to Minnesota. His halftime show performance was iconic in its own right. On his first night of a two night run at the Xcel, Timberlake pulled out all the stops and brought a Super Bowl level performance and then some.

The goal of the this tour was to bring the outside in. Timberlake and his band achieved this through building a completely immersive stage experience. From the runway stages to the incredible lighting with drop down screens, this in the round experience made every seat the best in the house.

Timberlake is a machine as he hardly broke a sweat throughout his nearly 2 hour set. Effortlessly mixing songs from different eras in his career, Timberlake presented a cohesive performance with flawless transitions. There was never a dull moment in this show as every song JT performed was a hit.

His backing band and contemporary dancers were equally on point as they kept the crowd on their feet. JT played double duty as singer and dancer, showing off his classic boy band moves to the audience of mostly 30 year olds who fell in love with him as a teenager.

There were so many highlights of the night. My personal favorite chunk of the show was when JT played Cry Me a River and Mirrors back to back. It should be illegal to play so many hit songs in succession because I was absolutely destroyed.

Another high was when the crew got a quick break and sang around a literal campfire; it was very intimate and allowed for the back up singers to get solos.

Opening for Timberlake tonight was Francesco Yates, a Canadian singer who reminded of a young Timberlake. Alongside him was the generically named DJ Free Style Steve who, if given enough time, could’ve easily made the wait for Timberlake unbearable.

JT was my first love in music. Growing up, my sister exposed me to Nsync and would later neglect to take me to their 2001 show. She has since made it up to me over the years as this was our second time seeing the king together. Justin proves time and time again why he is the best there is.
