Justin Timberlake made a boo boo

5 Feb – "Parents, do not let your kids listen to Justin Timberlake's music if they are below 10 or 12," said Justin Timberlake in a playful manner after he shared a funny anecdote of his encounters with several parents who approached him and told him how much their daughters adored him, according to The Philippine Star website.

"In recent years, after my last album came out in 2006," he recounted, "I've had parents come up to me and say, 'My kids listen to your music. My daughter really loves SexyBack!' And I say, Oh, great! How old is your daughter? And I was expecting they will say, like, they went to NYU or something but instead they say, 'Oh, she's nine.' And I felt really bad as a person. I thought that was very irresponsible of that parent - my music is explicit!"

However those encounters are not the reason why he has not released another album since then.

The former member of 90's boy band N'Sync has been busy with other stuff besides singing and touring – he has been busy making movies.

He has made eight movies in four years, including his critically-acclaimed turn as the notorious Sean Parker, the millionaire founder of the music-sharing website Napster, in the Oscar-nominated film "The Social Network".

The Grammy-winning performer may not be singing a lot these days but that does not mean he has completely ignored his fans, particularly those young girls who like listening to his sexy voice because he stars as Boo Boo Bear in the cute Warner Bros. 3D adaptation of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon classic Yogi Bear.

"Yogi Bear" follows the misadventures of Hanna Barbera's loveable pic-a-nic basket stealing bear, Yogi (Dan Aykroyd) and his sidekick Boo Boo (Justin Timberlake) while helping Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh) save Jellystone Park and get the girl of his dreams, the environmentalist Rachel (Anna Faris).

Cinema Online's "Yogi Bear" guests recently got the opportunity to catch Yogi and Boo Boo's adventures at TGV Sunway Pyramid. After the screening, we asked some of our viewers what they thought of the movie, what they feel towards the voice actors compared to the original animation and how many stars would they rate it out of 5.
 
 


Colin Pang: "It was okay and surprisingly funnier than expected. The voices were quite close to the original series. 3.5 stars."

Jacquelyn Ho: "First time knowing 'Yogi Bear' through the movie but my friend said it's different from the TV series. I could hardly recognise Justin Timberlake's voice at all! 3.5 stars."



"Yogi Bear" plays in Malaysia starting 2 February 2011.
