A few weeks ago, rumor has it a man proposed to his girlfriend on the Long Island Rail Road. Inspired by the classic scene in Say Anything, this man played Justin Timberlake’s “Not A Bad Thing” to pop the big question. Having heard this, Timberlake enlisted two documentary filmmakers to search for the couple. The music video, in essence, doubles as a missed connection Craigslist ad.

The visual also features other couples sharing their thoughts on love, marriage and their relationships as well as putting their two cents about the unidentified engaged couple. Sadly, after scouring the streets of NYC with flyers and speaking to various radio shows, the film ends with an unsatisfying “To Be Continued” sign. JT premiered the clip on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Check it out below.

Earlier this week, Pharrell Williams streamed his entire album on iTunes a week before its release. Arguably, his duets with Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus are among the standouts on the 10-track LP. In all honesty though, everything on G I R L is fantastic including his other duets with Alicia Keys, Daft Punk and a hidden track featuring JoJo. But for the argument of this post, I’m keeping it just between JT & Miley’s collaborations.

Pharrell lets Timberlake kick things off on “Brand New.” It’s everything you’d expect from these two. It’s in the vein of their previous collabos. Meanwhile, Williams switches things up with his latest work with Miley. “Come Get It Bae” isn’t my favorite track from the duo, but it’s still catchy and will undoubtedly get some radio play if Pharrell chooses to release it. Check out both tracks below and weigh in afterwards.

Was it as good as Jimmy Fallon’s SNL Christmas episode from a couple years ago? No, but it certainly was one of the better shows of Saturday Night Live’s 39th season. Definitely a great way to end 2013.

Even though Fallon was technically the guest host, sometimes it felt like it was musical guest Justin Timberlake’s show. JT got almost as much face time as Fallon in sketches, and on the flipside, Fallon practically did as much singing as Timberlake. The two multi-talented showbiz pals have always worked well together and this was no exception.

With the combined power of Jimberlake, they brought with them a few big name cameos including Paul McCartney, Madonna, Barry Gibb, and New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. With regards to the latter, believe it or not, this was his first appearance on the NBC late night show. The best sketches for me were “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and “Do It On My Twin Bed.” Meanwhile “Waking Up With Kimye” was easily the worst. Check them all out below.

2013-amas-performances-winners

The 41th annual American Music Awards took place at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre Live on Sunday night with Mr. Worldwide aka Pitbull hosting. Random choice, right?

Heading into the evening, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had the most nominations with six. Even though they nabbed two AMAs, Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night. The 23-year-old singer won four awards – Artist of the Year, Favorite Country Female Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and Favorite Country Album for Red. It was her third time winning the year’s top prize!

The top male dog was Justin Timberlake who walked away with three statues. Other multiple winners were One Direction and Rihanna. The AMAs bestowed the latter with their first ever Icon Award which was presented to her by her mom. Adorable.

With regards to performances, Lady Gaga in my opinion stole the show alongside R. Kelly with their sexually-charged tribute to JFK and Marilyn Monroe. Other memorable highlights include Katy Perry’s Japanese-themed “Conditionally” number, DWTS’ Maks Chmerkovskiy tossing around J. Lo during her Celia Cruz homage, Miley Cyrus being accompanied by a giant kitty and Christina Aguilera’s beautiful duet with A Great Big World.

On the flip side, I was underwhelmed with both Ariana Grande and TLC. The former was fantastic vocally but a tad boring, while the latter served practically zero energy during their “Waterfalls” performance with Lil Mama subbing in for the late Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes. Check out all the performances and winners below.

GQ Names Its Men Of The Year For 2013

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan
justin-timberlake-gq-moty

It’s that time of the year for all those year-end lists. GQ magazine revealed their picks for their annual Men of the Year issue. Not surprisingly, Justin Timberlake is one of them. Dude had a killer comeback with regards to music by dropping not one but two hit albums. Sadly, in cinematic terms, not so much. Have you seen Runner, Runner? Here’s a partial list of accomplishments as to why GQ honored the 32-year-old entertainer.

  • Played a comeback concert on the eve of the Super Bowl with Jay Z.
  • Staged Timberweek with Jimmy Fallon—a five-night run of appearances on Late Night, most of them hilarious, some flat-out brilliant.
  • Released his first album in seven years and toured the world to support it.
  • Performed at the White House, coaxing the president and first lady into joining him on vocals for a few lines of Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay.”
  • Hosted Saturday Night Live for the fifth time—and got an Emmy nomination for it. (“I’m sore,” he tells me, arching his back and grinning. “Really sore. You have to be really flexible to get it done five times.”)
  • Reunited with the other members of ‘N Sync at the Video Music Awards.
  • Released that second album.
  • Starred in Runner Runner (a decision, by the way, that he doesn’t regret).

Check out the other covers below featuring the publication’s other Men of the Year. They are Kendrick Lamar (Rapper of the Year), Matthew McConaughey (Leading Man of the Year), Will Ferrell (Funny Man of the Year) and the late James Gandolfini. Just in case you were wondering, Timberlake gets the #Hashtag of the Year title. The December issue hits newsstands November 19.

Don’t mess with Riley Keough. Elvis’ granddaughter is one bad ass black widow. After engaging in a steamy session, girlfriend hits Justin Timberlake over the head with a frying pan. That’s not the worst of it. Let’s just say JT suffers a fate similar to that off Thelma & Louise.

The darker visual directed by Ryan Reichenfeld certainly matches the darker vibe of Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience sequel. Props to the both of them for not going the expected boxing route for the clip. That definitely would’ve been a cop out. Fingers crossed for Justin’s sake that this clip helps “TKO” finally crack the Top 40. It’s hands down his worst-charting single since his comeback.

Keough is certainly making a name for herself these days. Along with swapping spit with Justin, she was engaged to Alex Pettyfer and rumored to be shacking up with Robert Pattinson, post Kristen Stewart. Speaking of Stewart, Riley made her acting debut with K-Stew in The Runaways. The 24-year-old model/actress can next be seen in Mad Max: Fury Road. Watch Riley punish Justin below.

Movie Review: Runner, Runner

In: Matt, Movies

After last month’s Getaway I was really looking forward to a good movie to review. Unfortunately for Runner, Runner, this isn’t it. The gambling themed thriller doesn’t even live up to the genre, has a boring hero, an equally boring plot and an ending as predictable as rain in Vancouver.

The film is about Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake), who is a student and teaching assistant at Princeton University who gets all of his tuition money cheated from him by a poker website. Richie then heads to Costa Rica with proof that he was cheated to convince the site’s billionaire owner, Ivan Block (Ben Affleck) to give him his money back.

Do you have friends who suffer from excessive hashtagging, whether manually done or auto-generated? I have a few that immediately come to mind. Myself, I’m all about a few select hashtags here and there.

On Tuesday night’s Late Night, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake banter back and forth, prefacing each statement with the ever so trendy #. It’s what some Twitter convos would sound like if said in real life. Try taking a shot each time they say it. You’ll be drunk within five seconds of the video.

The skit was part of JT’s TimberWeek on his pal’s show. A similar stunt he used to promote The 20/20 Experience. Naturally, he came back and did it all over again for the sequel dropping next week.
