Justin Timberlake On Las Vegas Residencies: “It Feels Like You’re Planning Your Retirement”

Published: Friday 19th Jan 2018 by Sam

Justin Timberlake may not be rustling up the charts with his new music, but he’s certainly rustling feathers.

While promoting new album ‘Man Of The Woods’ on Beats 1 radio, he made a comment about Las Vegas residencies that probably won’t resonate well with fans of former flame Britney Spears.

Find out why below…

After discussing the rigors of the road, as well as the challenges attached to prepping his upcoming tour, host Zane Lowe asked JT whether he’d ever consider Vegas – as the likes of Spears and more recently Lady Gaga have. His response was:

“It feels like you’re planning your retirement [laughs]

The person that did Vegas better than anybody was Prince. He was like “I’ll just show up when I show up and I’ll play 10 shows a year. It’ll be me because I’m the greatest that ever did it”

Peep the clip here:

It’s fair to say recent years have seen the likes of Britney, J.Lo, and co change the semantics of the “Vegas residency.” But ultimately we’re all entitled to opinions.

Do you agree with Justin?

    For those that have children it makes sense. Justin needs to humble himself. Gaga medical issues makes sense for her too.

  2. Memo January 19, 2018

    He better be ready because after this disastrous and flop of an era he will be begging for a residency

  3. Meme January 19, 2018

    No it just means your a veteran doing veteran things instead of trying to be young and hip. Dude grow up.

    • Fancy BISH January 19, 2018

      Exactly! And look at that picture of him at the top of the page! His wonky eye having asssss lol….isn’t it funny how he impersonated Steve Jobs but has yet to top Itunes or Apple Music streaming? lmao

  4. SMH January 19, 2018

    B*tch boy is still out there running his mouth subliminally disrespecting women, huh. That’s ok because Miss Karma is just getting started with his ass.

  5. MissImpartial January 19, 2018

    Why is he praising Prince all of a sudden after he dissed him in his song? ????

    • Marc January 19, 2018

      10 years ago. then, he even dedicated his concert film to him two years ago.

  6. stan January 19, 2018

    go back to the woods

  7. Marc January 19, 2018

    The fact that he didn’t shade anybody but That Grape C.u.m. still found a way to make him look evil. Vegas residencies are for aunties, he didn’t lie. I remember when Justin debuted with almost 1 million first week sales in 2013 and this site still found a way to shade him.

    • Haters Gon’ Hate January 19, 2018

      And yet just like JT – you stay talking smack. HOW is Lady Gaga an auntie???? She just barely half way into her discography. JT needs to watch his loose booty mouth because being a million unit seller in the past don’t mean nuthin’ today if people stop checkin’ for you because your material is wack.

  8. The Truth January 19, 2018

    BOY BYE! Good luck trying to remain relevant in Bruno Mars’ era.

    • Marc January 19, 2018

      with Cardi B even you can have a top 10

  9. StarXavi January 19, 2018

    who cares what he thinks…while he’s shading those people with Vegas residencies they are securing that bag

  10. Jess January 19, 2018

    Damm he’s ugly as hell ? That being said, he needs to stfu.

    • China January 19, 2018

      BISHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH i thought it was me, Justin use to be hot and have a hot body. WHAT HAPPEN TO HIS FACE?????? HE LOOKS DATED. BOTOX PLEASEEEEEE

      • MuchMore January 19, 2018

        LOL he’s now giving Mongoloid teas.

  11. justafan January 19, 2018

    only a flop would say this

  12. Stephy January 19, 2018

    He’s aging like spoiled milk…. Brad Bit would never!

  13. Jasmine January 19, 2018

    TGT is twisting his words here. The interviewer asked her (Justina Timberfake) how she feels about Vegas and she responded that it feels like planning a retirement. That comment has nothing to do with anyone else. Also, since when is it a negative thing to “plan your retirement”? To me that means Vegas is just a money grab so why not?

    • Caleb January 19, 2018

      Good point.

  14. Theman January 19, 2018

    Nah buddy Vegas is where the money is fool.

  15. Mark111 January 19, 2018

    Well his face looks like it’s close to retirement, so that’s that.

    Vegas is great for am artist with kids, I see Beyonce going there is about 7 years. It’s a new age, the old rules do’t apply anymore, get money anyway you can. Not everyone has a wife that out her career on hold to please old man face JT.

    • S****** Blonde January 19, 2018

      Nothing wrong with getting old, lucky the ones that get there, at least he’s not fat.

      • Haters Gon’ Hate January 19, 2018

        At least if he was fat he could diet – but his face is just plain BUSTED and broke down looking. Ain’t nothing he can do about that – so yes – at least he isn’t fat, because then he’d have options

      • Fancy BISH January 19, 2018

        @ Haters Gon’ Hate, SCREAMING! ? ? ?

  16. S****** Blonde January 19, 2018

    He said what a lot people think about Vegas residencies, y’all hypocrites know that is like this, y’all were shading Britney and JLo for doing it, Beyoncé would never blah blah blah, is he right?, of course not, but unfortunately a lot of people still think of Vegas as the place artists go when they’re not longer relevant. This JT hating campaign is really pathetic.

    • Bells January 19, 2018

      Stfu you racist clown.

    • Haters Gon’ Hate January 19, 2018

      Your bias and racist commentary is pathetic. Don’t think people will forget anytime soon. So if you don’t like what people are saying about “your boy” GTFOH Satan.

  17. Cough Cough January 19, 2018

    I really can’t stand this p****.

  18. Caleb January 19, 2018

    I think that used to be the case, but nowadays more current acts are taking up Vegas residencies.

  19. Liam January 19, 2018

    He needs to humble himself

  20. JET January 19, 2018

    Well, it seemed like the interviewer egged him on. I don’t think the comment was that serious, but I wouldn’t say that in an interview knowing that social media will run with this and run it into the ground.

    Humans continue to irritate me.

  21. DukeofDivas January 19, 2018

    You are not the greatest artist of your generation no matter how hard you try. Stop trying to be woke and socially conscious. You will never be Beyonce.

  22. Jamie January 19, 2018

    Beards tend to make guys look better, he still looks ugly.

    • Fancy BISH January 19, 2018

      Exactly lmao ?

  23. Highbrowthis January 19, 2018

    It’s becoming more and more apparent just how week he really is. The teeny boppers all had there moments and are fading in talent and authenticity. He will never be at the level of the greats. He should have and be doing a lot more. Pitchfork’s reviews are capturing his every pathetic move.

  24. Ropeburn January 19, 2018

    He really needs to keep Prince’s name out of his mouth.

  25. Jay January 19, 2018

    I mean….He does have a point, it’s almost like a farewell to the fans

    • eric January 20, 2018

      That’s a misconception. Boyz II Men, Celine, Backstreet Boys… all of them are still putting out new music and they were touring worldwide before Vegas called. They aren’t even thinking about saying farewell.

  26. The Alpha January 19, 2018

    I honestly don’t agree… Some ppl like consistency and when you have Kids or other plans and a family etc. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to stay in one spot. Justin better hope his s*** do numbers, At this point… His album is only goin to sell because of the “Hype” not the quality of his music.. Lets be real!

  27. eric January 20, 2018

    Good to know he has such a low opinion of artists like Celine Dion. The arrogance…

    • JOHNVIDAL January 20, 2018

      She is 20 times bigger than him. Says it all.

  28. XYZ January 20, 2018

    Isn’t it funny how normally everyone here says the same thing as him? I remember when some of the girls have announced their residencies y‘all were like „that’s like giving up your career“, „that’s reserved for older stars, she is too young“. But just because Justin said now and because the readers really seem to be against him, y‘all are now „no, it’s good money and makes sense, bla bla“

  29. dydy972 January 20, 2018

    Probably it was retirement plan 10 years ago but today it’s not perceived that way.
    If you want to take a break from all the travels and moving around, vegas can be a good place to make your money, have a place for a few years and plan your next moves.
    It’s the artist who decides what impact the residency will have on its career and not for others to judge.

  30. DanYiel Iman January 20, 2018

    Oh I mean isn’t that a stage act where most go to get those funds?!!

  31. JOHNVIDAL January 20, 2018

    Funny cause I remember how he hosted the monumental debut of Celine Dion first huge residency back in 2003 to national tv. He really wanted his name to be connected with that type of artist even so early in his career. Obviously she wasn´t retiring and she made Vegas what it is now. She decided to go after having the second best selling album in the world the year before. Vegas doesn´t have to mean that and has not meant it for a good 15 years now at least.

  32. CX January 21, 2018

    He lost me literally after his remarks about Scarlett.
