Justin Timberlake Explains Why He Was Afraid to Do 'Trolls'

Justin Timberlake is featured in The Hollywood Reporter‘s new songwriters roundtable issue alongside some other big names and he explains why he was initially afraid to do the music for his animated film Trolls.

“I think I was afraid to go into Trolls because I was like, ‘Well, there’s probably going to be more frivolity to it than substance.’ But then I looked at the story and I’m like, ‘Wait, hold on, we have a female protagonist that has a belly, crazy hair,’” Justin said. “‘That’s so important.’ And what a cool way into getting them into the theater — ‘I wanna be like Princess Poppy, not Barbie.’”

Also featured in the issue are Alicia Keys, John Legend, Sting, Pharrell Williams, and Tori Amos.

Alicia on recently not wearing makeup: “…We’re so brainwashed even as women that it gets confusing. It gets really confusing as to what’s inner beauty, what’s outer beauty? What’s the dance between the two? But the most important thing, obviously, is that you honor yourself and understand what is important to you as a person, and that has nothing to do with makeup…”

John Legend on Donald Trump: “Trump is saying Hitler-level things in public. The world and America have done some atrocious things in the past, and we could do it again if we had the wrong leadership and if people of conscience don’t speak up.”

Tori Amos on the DSA: “We all have to deal with the DSA, the Divided States of America. We have to deal with the emotions.”

    1 year ago I decided to resign from my office job and i couldn’t be happier now… I started working from comfort of my house, over a website I stumbled upon on-line, for several hours daily, and I make much more than i did on my previous job… My last month paycheck was for Nine thousand dollars… Awesome thing about this is that now i have more time with my family… http://secure84.com
