Michael Jackson may have been 'N Sync's Yoko Ono, according to Justin Timberlake -- who says the King of Pop pushed him to take a shot as a solo artist. Justin, whose recently unearthed duet with Michael on "Love Never Felt So Good" is climbing the charts, says he actually hoped to get Jackson to cover "Gone," which he'd written for 'N Sync. Michael thought that was a good idea -- on one condition.

Justin's interview on Oprah's Master Class airs on Sunday on OWN.
