So, so many girls (and boys) will be devastated to hear this news, but it’s reportedly real: Justin Timberlake is having a baby…with someone who isn’t you.
The 20/20 Experience Pop Prince and Motherlover‘s first child with Jessica Biel is on the way, according to an exclusive from Us Weekly. “Right now they are just enjoying the news for themselves…they just want a happy baby,” says ‘an insider’ to the magazine. In the meantime, Justin’s still touring through the next few months, while Biel recently just guest-starred on The New Girl with Zooey Deschanel.
No word yet on whether it’ll be a Señorita or the future heir to JT’s pop throne, but in any case…congratulations, you two lovebirds! We’re already excited to see the inevitable playdate photos with Blue Ivy. More »
Beyonce has been rumored to be releasing a four-disc reissue of her 2013 self-titled album. Now, a photo of that release’s tracklist has surfaced online. If this is to be believed, then the reissue’s physical release, here titled BEYONCE – The Complete Edition, will feature ten new songs with accompanying visuals, plus a DVD of her and Jay Z‘s On The Run special. Featured artists would include Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake and Rihanna.
Complex points out that this document appears to be fake for few reasons. It says that the reissue’s release date, November 25, falls on Monday — it’s actually a Tuesday. Plus, a song called “Good In Goodbye” is already a lyric from 4‘s “Best Thing I Never Had.” What’s also worth noting, though, is that two of this reissue’s songs are registered on ASCAP: “DONK,” co-written by Pharrell and The-Dream; and “Cherry,” written by Timberlake, Timbaland and Jerome Harmon.

At this Sunday’s (August 24) MTV Video Music Awards, Pharrell
will be the one male facing off against female pop forces Beyonce
, Miley Cyrus
, Iggy Azalea
in the Video Of The Year category
. And of course we all know those names today, but who remembers that Panic! At The Disco
once waltzed away from the VMAs with a Video Of The Year moonman? Or what song Green Day
nabbed the award for in 2005? Or what year Britney Spears
emerged victorious in the category?
Ahead of the latest staging of MTV’s annual extravaganza, we decided to flash back through the past decade, all the way back to 2004, to refresh our memories on exactly which artists and songs won the big prize on VMAs night. We then compiled snippets of all the winning clips into one two-and-a-half-minute video, which you can watch above. More »
Pop stars are really getting behind the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
, which raises money for the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease. Participants donate $100 or have a bucket of extremely cold water poured over their head. (To their credit, most celebrities have elected to do both). As a result, social media is buzzing with videos of soaking wet divas and shirtless singers. Bless.
As a part of the challenge you have to nominate three other people to take part. Taylor Swift picked Selena Gomez before undertaking her group-soaking with a bunch of friends and Drake passed the baton to Beyonce, who is yet to participate. (It’s surely only a matter of time). He used the opportunity to show off his rippling six-pack, as did Justin Bieber and Calvin Harris. Watch a selection of the best ice bucket challenges after the jump. More »
paused his set during a recent 20/20
concert when he heard the crowd yelling at him. One fan in particular, an autistic boy named Julian
, was turning eight years old – and all he wanted was for Timberlake to wish him a happy birthday, as a recent video shows.
The video was first posted by Julian’s mother, writer Marika Rosenthal Delan. “Things started to unravel quickly in my mind as I looked around, giving way to my worries about Julian’s obsessions, his volume, his repetitiveness, his clumsiness, if he would spill someone’s drink and if they would be unkind to him…. basically all the things a parent worries about when they have a child that is easily misunderstood,” she wrote, in a concert recap for the blog The Manifest Station.
Throughout the show, Julian tried to capture Timberlake’s attention: “It’s my birthday! This is my present!” As the video shows, and despite Delan’s initial worries, the crowd of 25,000 didn’t mind. On Timberlake’s count, everyone joined in to sing “Happy Birthday” to Julian. Watch the adorable footage below. More »
