Justin Timberlake: ‘I’ve Done Way Too Many Drugs’

Justin Timberlake has added a dash of dirt to his generally clean image by admitting he’s used drugs. “I’ve done way too many drugs already,” he told the U.K.’s Observer Music Monthly. “I’ve already inhaled and I’ve already…who knows.” The singer, in Europe to promote his second solo album, SexyBack, set for an August 28 release, was responding to a question about whether he might consider running for President of the United States.

While Timberlake didn’t reveal exactly which drugs he’d tried, he did admit that he sometimes gets “completely plastered,” and that “I’ve done my fair share of drugs and I’ve been caught places with my pants down; it’s just I make sure there are no cameras around.” But Timberlake isn’t exactly a junkie, or even a boozehound. “I believe you don’t do anything to excess,” he said. “They always say too much of a good thing could be a bad thing. I try to live my life in a well-rounded manner. We all make mistakes.”
