Justin Timberlake: I did 'Yogi Bear' to feel better about myself

Justin Timberlake has a perfectly good explanation for why he decided to voice the character of Boo Boo in the recent "Yogi Bear" movie.

"Guilt," the 30-year-old singer said, according to the Daily Mail. "I’ve had parents come to me and say, 'My daughter really loves the song "SexyBack.'"' I say 'Oh great. How old is your daughter?' expecting them to say she goes to [college]. They say: 'She’s nine.'"

Jokes Timberlake, "That made me feel really bad as a person. And I felt it was irresponsible of those parents—my music is explicit. So I did this film so that I would feel better about myself."

It also didn't hurt that the "Social Network" star could relate to Yogi's little sidekick.

"I like to wear bow ties, I like the color blue, and I’m furry in places," Timberlake notes. "And I didn’t hit my growth spurt until late, so I was short for a large portion of my life."
