It's been speculated that Jessica Biel is the inspiration behind Justin Timberlake's song "Mirrors" — and though the crooner hasn't confirmed it, his explanation of the song pretty much solidifies the rumors.
"'Mirrors' is a love song to someone that you feel like is, you know, sort of your other half," he shares in a new audio clip on his website. "And it became a play on that. Not specifically about looking into a mirror."

He continues, "One of the most valuable things in a relationship is being able to constantly change and be individual, but look to the other side to the person that you're with and and know that they're changing as well individually, but somehow you two can mirror each other and be the other half of that world that you both create."
The tune, which is the second song off his new album The 20/20 Experience, tells the tale of a person realizing they're losing the love of their life — and fighting to make it work.
It goes hand-in-hand with JT's real life love story: After dating for four years, Jessica and Justin split briefly in March 2011. Seven months later, they rekindled their romance and were engaged that December. The duo wed in Italy on October 19, 2012.

"I think a relationship, when it's working, is constantly evolving because we as individuals evolve," he shares. "You want to know that the person you're with is evolving with you. People change like seasons. We're always growing, always evolving, and to know that the other half of a special part of your life is, like I said, mirroring you, but also being an individual in their own way. That's the power of singing. That's really what the song is about."
