    Justin Timberlake is taking a break! The singer, who has enjoyed a whole other world of success as an actor (and a funny one at that), is planning to slow down, put the brakes on and be spontaneous and do things like travel!

    Timberlake, 30, told Esquire magazine, "I think you can work and work and work and never really live. The plan is to have no plan. I'll probably travel, but I'd rather be spontaneous. I feel like I've earned at least a little bit of time to do that… There were times I was motivated by the fact I wanted to be the biggest music star in the world. Maybe it wasn't a conscious thought, but it was an underlying theme. I've spent a lot of time feeling like I needed to validate so much of who I was by what I did."

    Then he turned 30 and his 'tood changed significantly.

    "After I turned 30, I started asking myself questions why… The only validation I crave now is to be inspired in the same way I've always been. That's all I really owe myself at this point. If I stopped now, I could look at everything I've done and be so proud," he said.

    Come back soon, JT! We'll miss you and your SNL skits.
