Justin Timberlake doesn't think his children will like his music because he never liked the songs his parents listened to

Justin Timberlake doesn't think his children will like his music.

The 32-year-old singer-and-actor was never a fan of the artists his parents liked when he was a child, so he expects that when he and wife Jessica Biel have kids of their own, they won't follow their tastes.

Asked if he wants his future children to like his music, he said: "We'll have to wait and see. If I'm anything like my parents were with me, I'm sure I won't like any sort of music that they like, but that's how it goes."

Justin shot to fame aged just 12 as a member of 'The All-New Mickey Mouse Club', and was touring with *NSYNC in his teens but doesn't regret the fact he missed out on a normal college experience as he got older.

He said: "I don't think I would have enjoyed college much, to be honest with you. I probably would have gotten into more trouble than gotten anything much done. When I was 17 and 18, I was touring the world and that was an unbelievable opportunity."

And the 'Runner Runner' star credits advice his mother gave him when he was still a child for keeping him grounded now.

He explained in an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine: "When I was very young my mother sat me down and said, 'I think you have a gift for singing and I'm going to help you discover how far that gift can take you because I think it can change your life. But always remember that music is only one part of your life and it doesn't make you a better person in any of the other parts.' I've never forgotten that."
