Justin Timberlake's Teen Choice Speech Is Something We All Need To Hear


Justin Timberlake is now society's Mr. Feeny.

On Sunday night, the former *NSYNC star was awarded with the Teen Choice Decade Award, the teenage equivalent of a lifetime achievement award seeing as once you've reached 35, you've already lived your entire relevant life in showbiz as far as teens are concerned.
