JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE on being different and inclusion

“Growing up in school no one ever called me anything close to an innovator. They called me different, they called me weirdthey called me a couple other words I can’t say on TV. Thankfully my mother taught me that being different was a good thing…that being different meant you could actually make a difference.”

“I wrote this song [Can’t Stop The Feeling] because I wanted it to be about inclusion, about being together. If you are black or you are brown or you are gay or you are lesbian or you are trans — or maybe you’re just a sissy singing boy from Tennessee. Anyone that is treating you unkindly, it is only because they are afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are because being different means you make the difference. So f— ’em.” I Heart Radio Awards Ceremony

“I went through a lot of bullying in middle school and it made me so upset all the time. I hated my life. I hated everything. I live in New York City in a high building with a little terrace. I’d go on the terrace and I’d look off the terrace and I literally just thought about  jumping off because I hated living so much. It does make it so hard when your that age and everyone is being mean to you at school and you have to go to school every day and deal with people being mean to you. You feel like what you have to say isn’t important and that you’re not important. The way that I coped with it was making another group of friends outside of that group of people who were mean to me so that I had some sort of  support system. Then I focused all my energy on acting and dancing and singing and music so that I felt like I had a purpose that sort of took me out of it and made me forget about it a little bit and it made it a lot better.”

“Every single negative can lead to a positive. Any negative situation …don’t get too down about it – you’ll work it out. You learn it as you go along. You don’t get smart at 17. You just don’t unless you’re one of a billion. It will happen over time and it’s the getting there which will be the most fun.” Master Class/OWN TV

“If your self-esteem really does depend on how you look you’re always going to be insecure. There’s no way you can get around it because you are going to age. Even if you get that perfect body you’re going to get older and older and older. You can’t avoid it. So you have to somehow, at some point, take control and shift the focus and decide that who you are, what you can contribute to the world, what you do and say, is so much more important than how you look.” The Conversation

“You can never be too perfect, too thin, to curvy. I’m very confident and happy with
my body.” US Magazine

“It’s important to recognize your own self-destructive behavior and be honest about it.
You’re only hurting yourself or losing out on your truth and happiness. I’m not afraid to face
my own personal stuff. It’s so important to dig it up and figure it out and move on.”  Cosmo Girl

“I like my body when I have curves. We all come indifferent shapes and sizes, and this is
something to celebrate.”  Parade Magazine
