Justin Timberlake has spoken out about his musical partner Jay-Z, revealing that he’s not the same person you see on stage.
The Mirrors singer - who has collaborated with Jigga on both Suit & Tie and the critically acclaimed Holy Grail - told T Magazine that a lot of what fans see of Jay is acting.
JT explained: "I try to talk to people about how much acting goes into music, how much of a character goes into what you put on stage.
"You ever sit down with Jay? He's not the guy he is on stage. I'm not the guy I am on stage. I am a performer. It's an elevated idea."
The pair recently played shows around the US with their Legends of the Summer Tour ahead of the sequel of Timberlake's highly successful album, The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, which will also feature Jay.
The former NSYNC star is due to embark on a world tour next year with UK dates expected in 2014, as well as an upcoming slot at the iTunes Festival in London (September 29).
The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 is due for release September 30.
