Justin Timberlake Admits to Stalking Al Green

Justin Timberlake can do it all—singing, acting, dancing. But did you know he was also a stalker? Don’t worry, JT is pretty harmless. He was just a star struck fan who really wanted to meet “Let’s Stay Together” hitmaker Al Green while growing up in Tennessee. “I found out that the Reverend Al Green lived down the street from me,” Timberlake told guests at the White House’s “Soulsville, USA: The History Of Memphis Soul” event. “I drove out – 7 to 8 minutes from my house. Some might call that stalking; I just call it driving by to see where he lived.” The “Suit & Tie” singer even used to hang out at his local market in case the legendary soul singer would come by. “You used to go down the store just to see if the Reverend Al Green would drive by.” After all that work, JT did finally get to meet his idol in 2009 when the two performed together on the Grammy’s. Nice to see this tale of super fandom has a happy ending.
