Justin Timberlake: I Looked Like a "Moron" in My 'N Sync Days

Justin Timberlake has come a long way fashion-wise.

In an interview with Details, the erstwhile 'N Sync star talked about his current grooming habits and evolution of style and, needless to say, there are some memories he'd love to say bye bye bye to forever.

"There were many moments in my teenage years where I succumbed to…the weirdness of the group I was in, and in trying to conform—we're marionettes!—I ended up looking like a moron," the 31-year-old Timberlake admitted to the magazine when asked about the "perils of pack dressing."

We presume he's referring to his days in 'N Sync when he donned cornrows and baggy pants with the quintet, tried out bleached curls and even wore matching denim outfits with then-gal-pal Britney Spears—looks the popster has openly regretted on multiple occasions ever since.

Timberlake said nowadays his preferred hairstyle is a shaved head.

"It's scary the first time you do it, because you don't know what's under there—you could have some weird knot—but a shaved head is just so easy," the singer-actor and future hubby of Jessica Biel added, while also knocking guys who wear way too much hair gel.

While Timberlake ponders his fashion faux pas, with the mega-success of such new boy bands as One Direction and The Wanted, rumor has it that he and his fellow 'N Syncers might get back together.

While he didn't comment on it in his sit-down, former bandmate and America's Best Dance Crew judge J.C. Chasez recently quashed the reunion speculation, telling the Hollywood Reporter, "It's just not in the cards.

"I'm sure that everybody in my group has been asked at one time or another—I know I get asked, I know the other guys get asked—but we're happy with what it was and we're happy to move on," he said.

The crooner added that it's not about making a ton of money; for 'N Sync to reform it would mean doing so "for all the right reasons."

"We did what we did because we believed we had something to offer the entertainment world that was essentially fresh, and until we feel that way again, it's not gonna happen," he noted.

So there you have it, 'N Sync fans. But at least you have the cornrows memories.
