Pop star Justin Timberlake made his debut performance at SXSW music festival this week. And though he's no music festival virgin, this may be one of the first he actually remembers, due to his past use of "substances." "I’ve been to Coachella many times, on many different, um, substances," says the singer in a recent interview with MySpace, "I’ve been to Coachella many times but not remembered a lot of it, I’ll leave it at that." But there are some moments he has not entirely forgotten. "I stood in an open field and one year I saw Nine Inch Nails and the next year I saw Weezer and I was standing in the middle of the field, you know, like tripping my mind out," Timberlake recalls. The breakout former member of 'N Sync has cut down on "substances" in general in recent years, thanks in part to Ashton Kutcher, who "punk'd" him on his reality MTV show in 2011. “I actually stopped smoking pot for nine to 10 months after that," said Timberlake. "I was so stoned. If you ask my friends, if they're honest they would probably say that's the only way to get me as dizzy as I was."
