Justin Timberlake was one of the main members of NSYNC. The band was composed by Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass, JC Chasez.
The name was created using the last letters of their first names. The NSYNC was the ultimate boy band of the ’90s. If you were born in those years, chances are that you probably still remember all of their songs.
The band sold at the time more than 2.5 million albums a week, breaking the record of the Beatles! As the band kept selling, the singers had a super-fast rise to fame.
Justin Timberlake was just a teenager when he became worldwide famous. His decision to leave the band was a shock for all the fans of the band and many wondered what the real reason behind this choice was.
Justin has recently explained what led him to leave the band. “We were on a stadium tour, and I just felt like the whole thing was too big. It started as a fun snowball fight that was becoming an avalanche.
And also, I was growing out of it,” revealed Justin. Not only the fame arrived too fast and too soon, he also didn’t feel like he shared the same creative taste with the rest of the band. He wanted to produce more music and give less importance to the appearances.
For this reason, teenage Justin Timberlake followed his instinct and left the band. Today, he couldn’t be happier with his choice. He just recently sang at the Oscars and made everyone dance!
