Justin Timberlake 'chomped painkillers' to get through VMA rehearsals

London, Sept 27 (ANI): Justin Timberlake has admitted that he had to chomp painkillers for his MTV VMAs performance.

The 'Sexy Back' hitmaker said that he is so old that there was a lot of pill-popping to get him through rehearsals for 'NSync's comeback at the music awards, the Daily Star reported.

Timberlake also said that getting ready for the show wasn't as easy as when they first shot to fame, as there were more breaks in their rehearsals. (ANI)
