Not completely like Justin Timberlake, anyway. She says she doesn’t want their son, Silas, to grow up and be a “struggling” musician.
Jessica says “I already have this image of him as a struggling musician and that’s like, ‘Oh my God!'” She sees Justin Timberlake, even now, struggle to put out great material. Justin is obviously amazing at what he does, but even after all the hard work he’s been putting in for his whole career, it’s still difficult and takes a toll. Sure he has access to the studios, the reputation of success, and he can really call any producer that he wants to work with and start making music, but it’s hard to stay on top of the game when you are one of the best already. You have to keep innovating and creating, and that takes a lot of time, energy, and sacrifice.
I would like our baby to inherit Justin’s charm and his sense of humor. There are many qualities I’d love him to get from Justin. But there’s one thing I don’t want for him. I really don’t want him to be a musician.
Jessica says she’d rather see Silas grow up to be “an engineer or a doctor, something like that.” Those are certainly attainable career paths, but considering that both parents come from show business, and I’m not saying it’s impossible to pick another career, we’re sure Silas will be a natural-born entertainer, and very likely will do well in the business, if he were to enter.
