The former Wham! star told Germany's Der Spiegel magazine he wanted to recreate Madonna's kiss with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera which stunned fans at the MTV Awards last year.
Michael, who is openly gay, said the sexy Senorita singer would make the perfect partner for a spot of tonsil hockey.
"I've already called Justin Timberlake, but unfortunately, he hasn't called back," Michael cheekily told the magazine.
Unlike Madonna, though, Michael said he would not seriously contemplate a collaboration with Timberlake or any younger music star.
"I couldn't bear people saying there's this old guy clinging on to a young talent," he said.
"Maybe I'm a little less worried that my star might fade than Madonna."
It is unlikely Michael's star will be fading anytime soon. The 40-year-old singer's new album Patience topped the charts in Britain and reached No.2 in Australia.
Last week Michael also revealed he regularly has sex with men other than his partner of eight years Kenny Goss.
In an interview with women's magazine,Marie Claire, George spoke candidly about his love life and said Goss also beds other men.
"Neither of us practices monogamy. Well, if one of you does, it's really sad, isn't it? And yes, it works", Michael said.
"There's no getting to know someone that you're sleeping with. There's no dining, there's no going about the social graces, whatever. You have people on the side when you need sex. Simple as that", he said.
The singer said neither he nor his partner were jealous over each other's sexual liaisons.
"I can walk out the door ... And there's not a piece of him that worries. And vice versa", he revealed.
Although a lively sex life may be keeping Michael young, the star is not in the least bit worried about growing old.
"I like a bit of grey on me and feel very comfortable being myself", he told Der Speigel. – Report by News.com Australia
