Justin Timberlake on new music: 'I'll tell you when I'm ready'

Justin Timberlake has said that he will announce his return to music when he is ready.

The singer teased his future musical plans during a preview of the revamped Myspace, in which he has invested.

Asked what will be on his own artist page when the social network relaunches next year, he replied: "I'm going to reserve a little bit of my answer, because I don't know yet, and I think that it could change from statement to statement, experience to experience.

"I don't want Myspace to be who I was last night through a bunch of drunken pictures in a drunken stupor, and I don't want it to be who I am right now or what I'm typing on the internet."

The star went on to joke with journalists that it was the media that announced his retirement from music, and not himself.

"You're the ones who stopped talking about me as a musician. You guys act like I said I've retired," Timberlake is quoted by MTV as saying.

"I can tell you this: when I'm ready to say something, you always know that I'll say it in the biggest way possible."

He added: "[My music] really comes from the heart. Making movies and making music, they have a lot of similarities, but I can tell you that, and while they both come from honest places, music for me is the thing that comes most naturally to me, and for me, I just don't take it for granted.

"I'm not dumb. I hear what people say. It obviously doesn't bother me. I'm really patient. It's not about them. [My music] comes from a pure place.

"If anything, I'm honouring it in the best way that I know how, but when it's time, I'll be ready. I'm not less inspired, I didn't give up, but until I have something to say, I was taught to keep my mouth shut. That's how my mother raised me."

A preview of the reworked Myspace was unveiled earlier this year, while the public were invited to apply for an invitation to test the beta version of the new site.
