Justin Timberlake is tripping. No really, he said so.
While in Austin to headline a surprise show at South by Southwest, the singer told MySpace that while this was his first time at SXSW, it was not his first time attending a music festival. “I’ve been to Coachella many times,” he said. “On many different, um, substances.”
It’s no secret that the former *NSYNC star is a fan of illegal drugs — heck, half the lyrics on his new album, “The 20/20 Experience” are a reference to marijuana — but this is the first time the newly-married man has openly talked about other substances.
He goes on to say “I remember I used to go to Coachella a long time ago. I remember Coachella when there wasn’t, like, paparazzi and stuff there. Like, I stood in an open field and one year I saw Nine Inch Nails and the next year I saw Weezer, and I was standing in the middle of the field, you know, like tripping my mind out.”
We’re going to give our favorite boy bander the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he just means he tripped on something while in the field. It’s possible.
