ART IMITATING LIFE Basketball is one of Justin’s favorite sports. Perhaps that’s why one of his first-ever performances was a cover of Lil Bow Wow’s “Basketball.‚ singer during an appearance on MTV! Not surprisingly, the friends like to do normal stuff on the rare occasions when they see each other, whether it’s shootng hoops, skateboarding, playing video games, or just hanging out. Of course, being the friend of a megacelebrity has its perks, too. Justin has introduced his Stratford friends to some other big-name recording artists, including Eminem. Unfortunately, the friends don’t get to chill as much as they’d like. Being on the road as much as he is, waking up in a different city or even different time zone from the day before can wreak havoc on a routine. But Justin tries to keep to a schedule as best he can.
