Justin Timberlake made sure to tell Details mag what he thinks of paparazzi and gossip mags. "I despise what they do," the popstar says in the mag's April issue. "They create soap operas out of people's lives... It's a spin game, and I choose not to take part in it." Not participating includes speaking publicly about famous exes Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears. "I would never say anything bad about anyone. I love a lot of those people." Of his stellar solo career, the former *NSYNCer says, "I tried so hard to be an R&B artist, and it was the pop album of the year... That's the last thing I wanted. But I was like, 'So everyone considers me a pop artist? I'm going to do whatever I want to do.'"
