After taking home a handful of Video Music Award trophies, Justin Timberlake decided to give his fans a shout out. The former member of NSYNC has penned an open letter to thank thousands of people who have been supporting him and his music.
"The last time I wrote you an open letter, it was in January and I promised that it would be a 'Big 2013'," read the open letter, which was posted on Timberlake's website. "Since then, from The Grammys to the release of the first part of 'The 20/20 Experience' to the crowd's response at the VMAs, it's been a wild ride. I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have."
"This letter is to tell you that we're not done... Not even close," the letter continued. Timberlake then talked about her upcoming album, "The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2". "Since all these songs were written together over a year ago, it's been so hard to wait this long to release them," he said of the tracks in the second installment of his successful "The 20/20 Experience".
He revealed that he finished recording the 11 new songs for the new album in only 20 days. He also shared a video that sees him hitting the recording studio, talking about his passion for music and conceptualizing new ideas for the new project.
"So..below is a short clip of the recording of the experience so you can get a feel of what those 20 days were like. It was like no other time I've ever had in the studio," he added. "Catch your breath, TN Kids. We've still got the 3rd and 4th quarter to go."
Timberlake had a big night at MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night, August 25. In addition to winning several awards, he excited fans when bringing out all NSYNC members on the stage.
During an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Monday morning, August 26, former NSYNC member JC Chasez revealed that the reunion was Timberlake's idea. "It was just a matter of time. Everybody would ask us, 'When are you guys going to do something?' " Chasez said.
"First of all, it was the worst-kept secret ever, [but] Justin gave me a buzz and he said, 'Hey man, listen. I'm getting this award and they have given me a pile of time to perform and we started our careers at MTV and I think we should get the band back together,' " he added, referring to Timberlake's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Chasez said that once all the members gathered to rehearse the performance, no one felt that 11 years had passed since NSYNC broke up. However, he continued that he and his bandmates couldn't seem to remember their iconic dance moves, saying, "Everyone was going, 'Can we go through this one more time slowly?'... So that part was pretty funny."
Following their VMA performance, Chasez revealed that there wouldn't be NSYNC reunion tour. "No. It was just about five guys who were great friends who spent 10 or 15 years together touring and we... wanted to give that back to our fans, but we were there mainly to support Justin," he added.
