Singer Justin Timberlake has confirmed that he wears glasses because he needs them, not because they are a fashion statement.
He told television host Jimmy Kimmel that he is short sighted and needs to wear his glasses, reported Javno.
Mr Timberlake had been spotted wearing glasses last week and confirmed that it was not because he was trying to be fashionable.
He told Mr Kimmel he had "embraced" his poor vision and "made a commitment with these glasses", adding, "I"m good."
Demonstrating his restricted vision, the singer told the host that while he could see him, he could not see the audience.
