Timbaland is ready to quit the music business. The super producer who masterminded recent hits for Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado - is planning to retire because modern music has become "stale" and "boring".
He said: "I just do music. It can easily get stale, so I'm always creating, innovating new stuff. I don't get into it that deep, I just do whatever I feel, it's real simple."I don't need to do anything for money. I'm just glad to have a job. But music is boring right now. I'm too innovative for the world. I've been doing it so long, I'm about ready to throw in the towel.
I 'm about to de-crown myself and pass it over to one of the up-and-coming producers under me. "They won't be able to be me - there's only one Timbaland - but there's a certain sound that I try to teach." The millionaire music mogul has also revealed that he started making records to try and bring happiness into people's lives. He said: "I like entertaining people. I can't make them happy - I'm not God, and only God can control your emotions and your moods. "I just like to be a part of their mood swings, that's what I like and that's why I love music."
