Justin Timberlake continues to downplay *NSYNC

Justin Timberlake reveals he left *NSYNC because he felt like he cared more about the music than some of his band mates. 
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he adds that he also wanted to pursue a solo career and needed to follow his heart. Bye bye byyyyye, Justin. Your level of self-importance is absolutely astounding!

Dude once said in Rolling Stone that 'Justified' was better than anything by *NSYNC. Honestly, it annoys me how some people are ungrateful, and continue to shit on the forces that made them who they are today. Without *NSYNC, he would not have been given the platform to break out successfully. He would just have been a "cute" blue eyed white boy trying to put out R&B music. Maybe on par with Robin Thicke, in fact. Being the most fancied in the group (and having a very public romance with Britney Spears) did some serious wonders. *NSYNC is what gave him his core fanbase, which is all the more disheartening that JC didn't blow up because he was always the most talented member of  the group.
