Timberlake has already teased to MTV News that the second half will be the “more dangerous” older sister, saying, “The first half the sun is out the second half the moon is out, I don’t know.” In addition to new music, Timberlake will soon hit the big screen in “Runner Runner” alongside Batman himself, Ben Affleck. “It’s an exciting movie it’s a lot of fun too.

It’s smart and it’s got a lot in it.” The same day he appeared on Seacrest’s radio show, the “Today” show teased a part of their upcoming interview with the pop star, where he weighs in on Miley Cyrus’ headline-making VMA performance, which he previously likened to performances from Britney Spears and Madonna . “I don’t know that I have definitive thought in one direction or the other about it. I think she’s really smart, and I think she’s really talented.
