I’ve known Justin Timberlake for more than 20 years.
He’s my best friend, my best musical partner and my biggest fan.
We have so many things in common, but he’s also my biggest, most important fan.
The moment I met him, it was like we were instantly connected.
So I started talking to him and talking to people about what it was about his music that I liked.
He said, ‘I’ve got a thing for skinny jeans, so I like skinny jeans’.
I said, OK, cool.
And I kept it a secret.
But I never would have guessed he would become a part of this journey that I am now in.
He is the perfect ambassador for a new generation of young people who are inspired by Justin Timberlakes music, but also by other artists.
And we are now on the road to be a part to help them realize their dreams.
I want to be the ambassador for Justin Timberlands music, for what it is, and how we can do it better.
I am inspired by his confidence.
I’m inspired by the confidence of his fans.
I love the way he makes his music.
I hope I can inspire people to be inspired too.
When I met Justin, I was a young artist.
I was doing my first thing.
I had no idea that I would have to reinvent myself to be part of his music and for the people around me.
He knew exactly who I was and what I wanted to be.
So, for a long time, he was there for me.
But now, it’s time to be able to connect with his fans and show them what he has done.
And to be his ambassador, I want him to be my ambassador.
He has helped me grow.
He knows who I am and who I want.
And so I want Justin to know who I really am.
I know that I have to be humble and say, ‘OK, I’m here to help you and be your ambassador.
But that’s not me.
I don’t need anyone to know me.
I just need you to be there.’
And I have been.
That was the biggest thing for me in terms of growing as a musician.
When you see Justin Timberlovers music, you can feel it.
You can feel how much you care about this music.
When people see me, they see a young person who wants to give his best to be recognized and to be appreciated.
Justin has made it easy for me to say, I am not a celebrity.
I have never had to prove anything.
And as much as I love my music, I know what it’s like to be under the spotlight and have to prove myself.
He told me once, ‘You can’t be a celebrity and be in the spotlight all the time.
You have to do what you’re supposed to do.’
And that is to show people that Justin is not just a musician, but a human being who cares.
I feel like I have a great support system with him.
I think Justin is a great ambassador.
I appreciate him so much for putting his own face and his own voice out there.
And that’s how I want people to feel.
I need to be proud of my accomplishments.
I’ve been in music for so long, I’ve learned how to have a lot of fun and have fun in the moment.
I never think about what’s coming next.
But at the same time, I think it’s important to show my fans what they’re going to get with me.
Justin is my greatest friend.
He can be the face of my brand and I want that for myself.
So the next time I’m in a club or on a stage, I’ll just be like, ‘Oh, I have something to say!’
And I’m ready.
I got a message for you.
Let’s be more humble, Justin, and be a little more confident.
