Justin Timberlake admits to smoking marijuana

Pop star icon Justin Timberlake has admitted to smoking marijuana to relax.

When asked if he was a pot smoker during a recent interview with Playboy, Timberlake, 30, said "absolutely."

"The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking," said Timberlake. "Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high."

Timberlake began his career as a child actor in the Disney Channel television series The New Mickey Mouse Club.
