Justin Timberlake says he looked like a "moron" during his NSync days.

The singer and actor started off his career in the boy band - alongside JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone - but Justin admitted some of their outfits still embarrass him, 12 years after they broke up.

He told Details magazine: "There were many moments in my teenage years where I succumbed to, um, the weirdness of the group I was in. And in trying to conform - we're marionettes! - I ended up looking like a moron."

During his days in NSync Justin often sported a full head of curly hair but admitted these days his preferred style is a shaved head.

He said: "[I love] a shaved head. It's scary the first time you do it, because you don't know what's under there- you could have some weird knot - but a shaved head is just so easy."

Justin also likened MTV Jersey Shore star Pauly D's famously gelled hairstyle to "performance art".

He said: "I don't like when I see guys do too much hair gel. I don't mean Pauly D - because that's basically performance art. But when you use enough hair gel that your hair becomes a sculpture - and you wanted it to look that way? It's just weird."
