Who does Justin Timberlake think he is? Seriously. The life of the Memphian country music balladeer-turned-Mouseketeer-turned-pop music puppet-turned-MTV megastar-turned-sex symbol-turned-fashion icon-turned- salesman-turned-entrepreneur-turned-comedian-turned-thespian is taking yet another turn. He's turning 30.
He’s now lived half his life away from Memphis. But an informal survey of his hometown connections shows that through enterprise, generosity and deep roots, Timberlake remains a strong force here. The pop star has poured perhaps $20 million or more into creating Mirimichi golf course, and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars supporting Memphis music.
