LOS ANGELES, July 14 (UPI) -- Lauren Conrad opened up about her childhood crush while speaking to Us Weekly at the Mondrian South Beach in Miami Beach, Fla. last week.

After revealing that her bedroom walls were once covered in Justin Timberlake memorabilia, the former reality TV star said her crush dated back to the time the singer was "in his prime."

"Like, the hair, license-plate-around-the-neck Justin in his prime," she explained.

Conrad's revelations come almost six years after she admitted to being disappointed in the "Suit and Tie" singer after he dissed reality television during the MTV VMA's 2007.

"The biggest letdown was Justin Timberlake," Conrad told Us Weekly at the time. "I have always loved him, and he was a disappointment at the VMAs. Whitney [Port] and I presented him with an award. We were so excited, and he wouldn't even take the award from us. Then he went up to the microphone and insulted reality television on MTV. We were standing up there smiling, and I felt so stupid."

In 2012, Conrad revisited the subject telling the publication that Timberlake's remarks marked "probably the end of my love for him.''

Conrad traveled to the Sunshine State last week to host the Malibu Spiced Summer Soiree on Wednesday.
