Justin Timberlake 'Tunnel Vision' Ban Lifted From YouTube

Justin Timberlake's new single, "Tunnel Vision," is back on Youtube after the music video was briefly banned for violating policy terms for nudity and sexual images on video sharing site.

"Tunnel Vision" is off of Timberlake's latest release, The 20/20 Experience.

The video is now available to Youtube users who have to login to verify their age after a brief warning from the site.

"While our guidelines generally prohibit nudity, we make exceptions when it is presented in an educational, documentary or artistic context, and take care to add appropriate warnings and age restrictions," a Google spokesperson told ABC News. 

The 32-year-old singer warned fans of the video's content when he posted the link last Wednesday.

"Check out the new video for Tunnel Vision and be ready…it's explicit," Timberlake tweeted.

"Justin Timberlake is known to be a trendsetter with impeccable taste, but his latest decision has many wondering what the 'Suit & Tie' singer was thinking. It's a bit jarring, and more than a bit odd," the Huffington Post wrote.

Robin Thicke's latest music video, "Blurred Lines," also features nudity and explicit content forcing it to be taken down as well. It has not been reinstated.

Timberlake has sold roughly one million copies of The 20/20 Experience and is well on his way to selling a million more.

The singer announced that The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) will be released in September.

In addition to music, Timberlake may also be focusing on starting a family with his wife Jessica Biel.

''Now that they're married and Justin has made it clear he is devoted to Jess, there is no reason not to start a family," a source told Star Magazine.

"I'm not against the idea at all, but I think I still have some time ahead of me. Let's leave it to fate," Timberlake said according to
