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."

Yeah he needs to feel better about himself after rippin Janet's shirt off and exposing her breast. People forget it was at his hands that that happened! JERK
That was a setup by ugly janet so we could all see her ugly nipps. What an ugly female. When I saw it I threw up in my mouth a little.
