Move aside Frank Sinatra! Here comes Justin Timberlake!
The Mirrors singer was caught in the recording studio with Jay-Z, Nas, and Timbaland, all thanks to an Instagram photo posted by Def Jam’s Lenny Santiago!
Better yet, Lenny captioned the pic with a reference to the Rat Pack. He wrote:
A musical celebration of women the world over?! Hells yeah!
Pop Empresses Beyoncé & Jennifer Lopez will be headlining a summer concert called Sound of Change Live, and all proceeds will benefit various initiatives — more than 120 projects — that aim to assist/help women and girls in over 70 countries!
Electro-pop darling Ellie Goulding, smooth crooner John Legend, beatmaster Timbaland, ethereal songstress Florence and the Machine, and other to-be-announced acts will perform at the event, which takes place June 1st at London's Twickenham sports stadium.
Lady Bey said in a statement:
Yeah, Justin Timberlake has that much swagger!
While we listen to Mirrors on repeat and wait not-so-patiently for the November release of the second part of JT's 20/20 Experience, we've just gotten word that it's already basically done.
So why is the pop mastermind making us oh-so-painfully wait for those sure-fire smash hits?!?!
Even though he has plenty of unused tracks to throw out to the masses, he also wants to make even MORE musical magic in the studio.
Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon — who collaborated with 20/20 producer Timbaland— spilled:
It seems like Jay-Z has something to say to all those who have been criticizing his recent trip to Cuba…
So obviously, the music icon is delivering his comments in a style fit for the ruling King of hip hop!
Take a listen to Open Letter, featuring Timbaland and Swizz Beatz (above)!
Ohhhh, so Jay went to Cuba cause he really likes smoking cubans! It all makes sense now! LOLz.
Nah, it seems that this lyrical genius is simply trying to say don't succumb to the narrow, spoon-fed view of the world that we are often taught, and that it's SILLY that he had to call in a favor from his bestie Barack Obama so that he could go visit another country…
Especially one that we historically tried to capitalize on.
And if that IS somewhat the message of this track then TRUE THAT, dude!
And the shady saga of Timba’s stolen watch continues…
The producer, who filed a lawsuit against American Home Assurance Company back in January, clearly wants the money “owed” to him for his missing watch after having claimed that his two-year old daughter found and misplaced it.
And yet, it seems A.H.A.C. has no intention of writing any check out to Timbaland. According to the insurance company’s legal docs on this case, they claim several reasons of suspicion regarding Timba’s story:
Holy SH-T, you guys!
It sounds as though that this is only the BEGINNING of Justin Timberlake's musical comeback in 2013!
With his new album, The 20/20 Experience, dropping Tuesday, the singer has apparently been planning to follow it up with a SECOND part, featuring ten more, previously-unreleased songs, this November, many of which could very well feature Jay-Z!
Producer Questlove, who performed with The Roots and Justin all week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, broke the news, revealed on his music forum website:
Is Jessica Biel wearing pants that were crocheted by her grandmother??
Because that's what it looked Thursday night when she arrived with hubby Justin Timberlake at NYC's Southern Hospitality for Timbaland's Black Tie Birthday Bash.
From the waist up, Jess was impeccably dressed in her Peter Pan collar, black coat and cute ponytail, but as you start to scan down, all you see is a big crocheted blanket wrapped up to look like a pair of pants.
And those granny panties slash shorts underneath aren't helping either!
Thankfully Justin's dashing good looks along with his charming suit and matching fedora were welcome distractions from Mrs. Timberlake's granny couture.
We're glad you're feeling more confident now that you've found your partner and all, Jessica, but this is just all sorts of wrong. Next time leave nana's afghan on the couch and put on some big girl pants!
