The fact that Justin Timberlake smokes marijuana on occasion is not surprising, but his candor in discussing the issue in a recent interview is unusual.
"Absolutely," the singer-actor tells Playboy when asked if he partakes.
"The thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high."
Pot or not, the Bad Teacher star says he's ready to slow down and chill.
"I'm just getting to a point in my life where I'm looking around, going, There's a lot to enjoy if I can sit still, actually stop and take more time."
Part of that time out means no new music on the immediate horizon.
"I don't have a single song ready to go," admits the pop star, who hasn't released an album since the 2006 smash FutureSex/LoveSounds.
"People keep asking me when a new song or album is coming out, and I don't know what to say. Music is not my focus right now. It may be someday."
