Justin Timberlake is back! I mean, he never really left, right? But he’s back in original JT form, as a singing dude, with a Not At All Contractually Obligated record, The 20/20 Experience. “Suit and Tie” and “Mirrors” (which I think sounds like terrible ’90s era boy band soft rock) are both blowing up the airwaves, and he’s also on the new Jay Z record, so therefore, he’s everywhere at the moment. But you didn’t think we forgot about Justin Timberlake’s long pop culture history, did you? Or the fact that he owns a small soul food restaurant chain (aptly named Southern Hospitality). Plus, he’s got another restaurant named Destino to keep him warm.
After the jump, eight more things you may have forgotten (intentionally or otherwise) about Justin Randall (!) Timberlake:

Noted women’s rights activist and ex-Curly Girl Justin Timberlake has released the full single off the forthcoming second half of the 20/20 Experience. Having teased us on Wednesday with a brief 30 second snippet of his poorly titled single “Take Back The Night,” Timberlake unleashed the full version of the new single, which meanders along nicely, with Michael Jackson-inspired synths, a spoken word interlude and lots of upper-register pleading to “take back the night!” Is this Justin’ coming out as an ally? Not quite! It seems JT was just informed of the internationally-known sexual assault awareness campaign the same name, and released the following statement: Keep reading »
Dear the movie “Adore,” starring Naomi Watts and Robin Wright,
Let me start by saying that I’m not here as another social media troll who just wants to make fun of your semi-absurd plot. That would just be too easy. I know that you didn’t just turn the satirical “Mother Lover” into a pouty, melodramatic screenplay. After all, I just Googled that your director is French and your writer is British, so they could have been clueless to its existence. However, because we are friends here, I feel it’s only fair to warn you that you’re going to eat a lot of shit for this. I mean, a lot.
You see, if you’ve been on planet Earth lately, you know that the “Saturday Night Live” music video starring Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake went viral a few years back. In it, they don bad ’80s garb and monstrous chin straps while cheering on each other on their crooning quest for mother loving. Keep reading »
If conservative moms and diehard feminists thought Robin Thicke’s was sexist for featuring naked ladies prancing around on camera, wait until they get a load of Justin Timberlake’s NSFW music video for “Tunnel Vision.”
The racy clip, which dropped Wednesday, features the fully-clothed crooner belting out his third single off The 20/20 Experience while three topless females contort to the music, letting their uncensored breasts all hang out.
At one point, footage of Timberlake’s frequent collaborator Timbaland – who is also dressed for the duration of the near-seven minute clip — is super-imposed on the dancers’ bodies. Read more on Celebuzz…
Are you over screaming goats yet? It’s okay, neither are we. But in the event that you’d like a new hilarious animal sound/pop song mashup, we present to you Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” with kitten backup singers. Who knew JTims sounded so much like an angry cat? [HyperVocal]
But not quite, of course. Sure, I ran 12 city blocks — in heels — to stand next to him in front of Whole Foods. Yeah, I’m working on a rom-com screenplay about my crush on him. And I definitely am alone in having to suffer through a Goservention. But still, it has come to my attention that I — okay, and tens of thousands of regular folks — am not the only one who has a major boner for Ryan Gosling. Quite a few celebrities — including otherwise straight men — have a special place in their hearts (and spank banks) for the Gos. Read on for some unadulterated Gosling worship… Keep reading »
Jamie Lynn Spears, younger sister of Britney, tweeted something vaguely ominous to Justin Timberlake — and then deleted it. She posted a photo of her, JT, and Brit Brit in a car, while alluding to knowing that his song “Cry Me A River” was written about her sister. Thankfully someone screencapped it before it was lost into the vortex of time. Read more on Evil Beet Gossip…
One of my favorite songs on Justin Timberlake’s just released album, The 20/20 Experience – which is growing on me! – is “Mirrors,” which also happens to be the latest single. Justin released the music video for the song yesterday, which he dedicated to his grandparents William and Sadie. The video — which doesn’t even feature Justin until towards the end — tells the story of his grandparents’ 63-year marriage and, damn, if it didn’t make me get a little teary. I’m still waiting for Justin to bring sexy back again, but tugging at my heartstrings will do for now.
