Justin Timberlake plans to get back in the studio

Justin Timberlake is about to give his music career a little tune-up: It sounds like the singer is finally ready to head back into the recording studio.

"I'm unemployed right now," Timberlake, who has focused on films since releasing his last album, 2006's "FutureSex/LoveSounds," tells E! Online. "I haven't been hired for anything so I may hire myself to write some music."

It's quite a turnaround for "The Social Network" star, who told Entertainment Weekly in October 2010 that he wasn't sure when, if ever, he would make another record.

"Does a painter make a painting because he has to make it by December 21st? No, he doesn’t. It happens when it pours out of him. That’s how music is for me," he told EW at the time. "I never stop making music. I don’t know what else to tell you, except that I just don’t know [in] what capacity I want to be involved anymore… All I’m saying is, in very simple terms, I’ll know when I know. And until I know, I don’t know."

Well, now he knows.

Timberlake tells E! Online, "I think I may spend some time in the studio this summer."

Are you looking forward to another record from JT?

    Some people...first off.. "sings nasal"? Do you even know what that means? I'm guessing not or you wouldn't have put that. I have heard singers that do have a nasal sound to their voice, and he is by far not one of them. And to all the "gay" comments.... first off, it wouldn't really matter if he was, because honestly, it has not a thing to do with his music, and secondly, if someone gets laid more often than "you" that would have to make them gay right? I mean, its not like, maybe you might be jealous? No... couldn't be that... I'm thinking, some people should just grow up. If you don't like his music, don't listen to it, and don't buy it. Obviously enough people do, because it always sells. And please... get off the whole brainwashing theory. People have ears, as do you. People listen to what they like.

    people..... if you keep buying CRAP, then it only encourages the music industry to keep making more. Resist the subliminal programming, don't get fooled into keeping JT on the airwaves!!

    I hate it when artists forget where they came from. I realize peeps wanna branch out but u wouldn't be where u are if it wasn't for music. They wouldn't know who u are if not for that. Just don't suck on this new album.
