When Jessie J let the cat out of the bag that she wrote nine songs with Justin Timberlake, nobody knew what to think. Timberlake has been so jittery whenever a journalist would confront him for banishing his music roots. At times he’d get a little defensive, or hide behind a flourishing acting career.
