My first obsession was Justin Timberlake. I loved everything about him and N’Sync. I have all the albums, the unofficial or unauthorized books, magnets, posters, dolls, stickers, trading cards and any other product that had them on it. I recorded all of their television performances and I bought Darrin’s Dance Groove just so that I could dance to “Bye, Bye, Bye”. When my friends came over I made them perform N’Sync songs with me in the living room. I use to spend hours in the magazine section looking through all the teen publications. Then I’d beg my parents for subscriptions so that I could place posters on my wall. My room was a fire hazard. Every wall adorn with photos of Justin and his band mates. I even made an e-newsletter and sent out pictures and news on N’Sync to my friends.
But whom am I kidding, if N’Sync was to reunite and have a tour, I would probably shell out $500 for a fan package. I never got to see N’Sync in concert, tragic I know. I did get to see Justin in concert. When Justin was in the two summers ago filming “Friends With Benefits”, I walked around trying to find him based off of some tweets that sighted him in Midtown. SMH! Sometimes I visit Southern Hospitality in hopes that he might pop up and by the whole bar drinks. A girl can dream right!
My obsession is gone. I still love the guy, but it’s not as deep. However, sometimes I wonder what I would do or say if I were to meet him today?
