Justin Timberlake, Then and Now

So Justin Timberlake released the music video for his new single "Can't Stop the Feeling" on Tuesday, and our very first thought was: "Why doesn't this have more of Justin Timberlake dancing?" And then our second thought was: "This really is ‘Happy' 2.0, but in a good way."

But then our third thought was: "Hot diggity damn, Justin Timberlake has never looked hotter."

Seriously. JT is truly like a fine wine, in that we want to uncork him and drink him in slowly while lounging in a fancy chaise on a sun-drenched veranda as a team of servants continually reminds us how awesome we are. This metaphor went of the rails a bit but you get the point.

When we were teenagers, we thought Justin was at peak hotness when he was part of 'N Sync and sporting that bleach blonde ramen-noodle hair and white tank top. Basically, our sexual awakening came in the form of the "Drive Myself Crazy" video.

Oh, yeah. That's the stuff.

But we now see that we were wrong. Is it the fact that he's a sexy dad now? Or is he using some kind of sorcery on the world? Who cares?! We get to watch it happen.

Here's definitive proof that Justin Timberlake has only gotten more and more attractive as the years pass:

He started at the aforementioned "Ramen Noodle Hair" hot:

Then came "Movie Star" hot, which lasted a long time. It's still happening, actually:

Then it was time for "Flawlessness is 20/20" hot:

And then he moved onto "Husband and DILF" hot:

And finally, we're here. This is officially the "How is it possible that you manage to get hotter every year?" stage:

Teach us your ways, Timberlake. Or don't. We'll just watch (and lick our lips) from afar.
