OK, Justin, it's your turn for this question; do you believe in psychics ?
Justin: I don't know. I think that there is a certain degree to which the mind
can tap into. I mean it's sad to think that we only use 10 percent of our brains.
I think some people can tap into another part of their brain. I believe the mind
is more powerful than anything in the world and I believe that if we were able
to use our full minds we would probably destroy ourselves and the world. I also
believe that people can move things with their minds and really utilize their
TEEN: What about horoscopes? Do you ever check yours?
Justin: I don't look for my horoscope but if I'm flipping through a magazine
and I see it I'll read it for fun. They're so vague that you can always relate
it to something. I've never had a tarot card reading before but, one time, we
were shooting this thing for MTV and I got my palm read and she was pretty dead
on and I was pretty amazed.
TEEN: Cool. Now on to the tough questions! How long to you think you'll remain
single? And, what, if any, future plans for marriage and family do you have?
Justin: I think I'd make a good daddy! I was brought up really well by my parents
and I think that one day I'll make a good daddy, not anytime soon.
TEEN: Are you currently single?
Justin: I'm half way single. I'm dating. It's tough to really carry on a serious
relationship with somebody, especially when every move you make is followed by
the media...particularly the tabloids. I've learned from watching other people
that if you do have a serious relationship with somebody, it doesn't do any good
to totally publicize everything you do. I heard just that from Matt Damon's mouth,
and I heard it from Ben Affleck's mouth. I firmly believe that you have to have
some personal life. Right now I'm still playing the field and figuring out what
I really want and there are a couple of girls that I date and they remain nameless.
TEEN: Do the girls you're dating know about each other?
Justin: I'm always honest when I'm dating somebody. I don't play games.
TEEN: That's a good quality to have...Do you see yourself settling down at
some point though?
Justin: It's tough for me right now. I am really a one-woman type man. This
has been the first time in my life that I've really played the field. When
I was younger, although I guess I'm still younger, I was always with one girl
at a time, I never tried to date two girls at once. It wasn't the way I did
things. If I'm interested in somebody, I figure out what they're all about
and I go after that. I'm also totally honest with the person from the get go,
I don't play games at all -- I don't believe in it.
TEEN: How about marriage...do you think that's in the cards?
Justin: You can't answer that. If it comes along and you're in love with someone,
that's when you know. But until then, we're all searching. I think when you
meet that certain person you'll know it.
TEEN: What kind of boyfriend are you?
Justin: Loyal. I'm a hopeless romantic...when I fall for somebody, I fall hard.
It takes a lot for me to fall for someone, but when I do, it's over, that's
when I give them everything.
I think I've learned sometimes women need to chase men. I think there's a lot
of give and take that needs to happen. I've been cheated on numerous time by
ex girlfriends. It's hard for me to trust somebody, but on top of that I think
I gave too much and it was so overwhelming that they took it for granted and
thought that it would be there when they needed it. That's where I went wrong.
TEEN: What kind of girl do you like?
Justin: A confident one. Confidence is sexy to me. Not overwhelming, not sassy
stuck-up types, but someone who knows themselves and is comfortable with themselves
and has a good sense of humor.
I like girls who really go for it, who are not afraid. Someone that's balls
out - a girl that just goes balls out and lives life to the fullest. Be your
own person. I think the main thing about teenage romance is that people try
to get to know somebody else before they really know themselves and they end
up with a whole other personality that's not them.
You start dating someone and you start acting like someone you're not and that's
because you probably don't know yourself yet. I know that the first impression
I give off is a little intimidating. I don't talk that much when I first meet
people. I'm kinda quiet and reserved and I study. I study people when I first
meet them. They might think "he doesn't talk too much and he's rude" but
it's really that I want to study people before I start conversing with them.
The fact that somebody can just come up and start talking to me and be comfortable
with themselves and not worry about anything else, that turns me on.
TEEN: What's the best way for a girl to approach you?
Justin: Just talk to me as a person. That's all I am, just a person.
TEEN: A pretty popular person! On to your career...What do you think will happen
with your it 2000?
Justin: 2000 is gonna be our year. "No Strings Attached" is gonna
be huge... our goal is to keep stepping forward, moving forward.
TEEN: So where do you see 'N SYNC's career in the future?
Justin: I think we're just going to grow with our audience. We want to evolve
with the crowd that's with us right now -- and hopefully they'll stay with
TEEN: And where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Justin: Hopefully just happy doing what I'm doing.
TEEN: Is an acting career in the picture?
Justin: I'm open to anything. I'm just having fun doing what I'm doing. If
I suck at it I'm sure the critics will tell me how much I suck at it and it
wont matter because I'll be having fun.
TEEN: How will you challenge yourself in the future?
Justin: All of us have already started writing songs. Half of the new album
was written by us. Music comes naturally to all of us.
TEEN: It sure does! We're on our last leg so here are those "hard-hitting,
must-know" questions... What's in your fridge?
Justin: Milk. I eat a lot of cereal. Cap'n Crunch, Raisin Nut Bran, Applejacks.
TEEN: And... your most embarrassing moment was...
Justin: The most embarrassing thing is when you're at a party and the music's
really loud and all of a sudden it cuts off right when you're saying something
TEEN: Now, last but not least...what's your most prized possession:
Justin: I think possessions end up possessing you. It's fun to have toys- I
buy a lot of jewelry, I wear necklaces, diamond watches. I like to have fun,
I don't have anything that's stuck with me. I think my most prized possession
is probably my voice. I try to take care of it as much as I can.
