Justin Randall Timberlake (born January 31, 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, and actor. Born in Memphis, Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child. In the late 1990s, Timberlake rose to prominence as one of the two lead vocalists and youngest member of the boy band NSYNC, which eventually became one of the best-selling boy bands of all time.
During the group's hiatus, Timberlake released his solo studio albums Justified (2002) and FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006); the former spawned hits "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body", while the latter debuted atop the U.S. Billboard 200 and produced the Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles "SexyBack", "My Love", and "What Goes Around... Comes Around". With each album exceeding sales of seven million copies worldwide, he was established as one of the most commercially successful singers of the decade. From 2007 through 2012, Timberlake focused on his acting career, effectively putting his music career on hiatus; he held starring roles in the films The Social Network, Bad Teacher, In Time, and Friends with Benefits.
In 2013, Timberlake resumed his music career with his third and fourth albums The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, exploring neo soul styles with the song structures of 1960s and 1970s roc


NEW DELHI: Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the NDA government of "killing" the Land Acquisition Act brought by the UPA and said Congress will fiercely resist within and outside Parliament the attempt of "suit-boot ki sarkar" to "grab" farmers' land.

"This government is in a hurry to pass this bill... It will not happen so easily. If we are not able to stop it here (in Parliament), we will hit the streets against it outside," the Congress Vice President said in Lok Sabha during a debate on the land bill.

He drew a parallel between a daylight robbery and the proposed law, saying an economist had told him that thieves wearing suits now strike during daylight.

Rahul's repeated jibes at the Modi government invited running protests from the treasury benches.

Hitting out at the bill, he termed it as an attempt by the government to acquire land, whose price has been rising, for industrialist "friends" and crony capitalists.

"This government wants to give land to crony capitalists and its industrialist friends because it's a 'suit-boot ki sarkar'," he said.
