Justin Timberlake is Back and So Am I

I still remember when I first realized I had fallen in love with Justin Timberlake. It was about a decade ago, and I still lived in Houston, Texas. I was about 22 years old, fresh out of college. I was single and ready to mingle…and Justin Timberlake was just the music to get me moving.

There was a party in the Montrose area of Houston, which is known for its arts and culture. I remember walking up to the house, the Houston cityscape towering in the background. Music bumped from the inside, a keg pumping out Shiner Bock on the front lawn. This was the time when all the hip kids were drinking that Sparks stuff, but I never liked it. Me, I brought my own bottle of vodka and just needed to find something decent to mix it with.

I remember walking in the front door with a few friends, realizing that I barely knew anyone at the party. But good God, there sure were a lot of indie-looking kids shoved in that little old house with their red lipstick and black rimmed glasses. I remember thinking that I wasn’t sure if I was cool enough to be there, but I shook that thought off and found some Sprite to mix with.

Before I knew it, I was mingling and chatting it up. Flirting—you know. What young twenty-somethings do. I remember looking out in the living room where the dance floor was and only seeing a few kids dancing.

But as the night rolled on and drinks flowed freely, everyone loosened up. And then it happened. “Rock Your Body” by Justin Timberlake came on the stereo and the place erupted. Suddenly drinks were raised in the air and every single person in the house was dancing their asses off.

I remember looking around and feeling the music. I remember thinking, “God, this is the best night ever.”

And it was right then that it happened. I fell in love with Justin Timberlake.

JT and Me Today

Fast forward a decade. I’m no longer a recent college grad. No longer a single twenty something. No, I’m 32 years old with a 4 year old and a husband. Life is very different. It took some unexpected turns, but I have no complaints.

But the days of house parties and staying out all night dancing and drinking are long past, replaced by wine with dinner and early to bed nights. After all, who has the energy to party with kids? Not this girl.

However, recently, something has awakened inside of me. See, Justin Timberlake has returned with a new album. Like an old boyfriend, coming around and stirring up old emotions. I know I can never return to my old life, but it doesn’t mean I can’t relive some of those beautiful, exciting, old memories.

So he’s here, new music and all. And to make matters worse (better), he’s on tour. That’s right. He’s coming to see us. Dubbed the 20/20 Experience World Tour, Timberlake is heading out on a world tour that’s going to “Rock Your Body.” And mine too.

I’ve already cleared this with my husband. For one night in 2014, I’m going to relive my twenties. I’m going to see JT live. I’m going to drink. I’m going to dance. I’m going to swoon like I’m 22 again (But I won’t flirt like I’m 22 again. I love my husband!)

What Can We Expect From the Tour?

It’s already underway, and not to spoil the surprise or anything, I’ve been reading up on it. And I have to say, it sounds fabulous.  See, Timberlake has an added advantage over many other musicians. Not only does he have an amazing voice, but he can dance better than pretty much anyone. On top of that, he’s a great actor (as we have learned over the last few years). All of this means two things:
  • He has the skills to throw together the best entertainment experience you can ever imagine
  • He’s so big that no one is going to tell him what to do—he will put on the show he wants to put on
And it sounds like the result is simply amazing. Other highlights include:
  • The Tennessee Kids—the band he has put together for the performance sounds amazing
  • They have embellished old songs to make them larger than life
  • His crowd interaction—he’s not one of these guys who is too big to talk to the fans

Jennifer Wilson used to work in an ad agency in Houston, Texas. However, she has since started her own business as a freelance writer. And in case you didn’t figure it out, she’s also a diehard JT fan who is really really REALLY excited about his comeback.
