USA Today -- He's certainly scrubbed up well, with that pretty wife and suit and tie and enviable career.

But Justin Timberlake still has some edge. Even if that edge is a little fuzzy.

Timberlake tells Myspace in a new interview that all those times he chilled at Coachella? He was high on some unnamed - but psychedelic-sounding - "substance."

"I've been to Coachella many times, on many different, um, substances. I've been to Coachella many times but not remembered a lot of it, I'll leave it at that. But I remember I used to go to Coachella a long time ago... Like, I stood in an open field and one year I saw Nine Inch Nails and the next year I saw Weezer and I was standing in the middle of the field, you know, like tripping my mind out."

These mysterious "substances" seem to still be in his, uh, musical repertoire. There's a reason some tunes on his new The 20/20 Experience album, like Strawberry Bubblegum and Blue Ocean Floor, sound, well, trippy: Their only inspiration was "our own substance abuse while we were making (those songs)," JT explains.
