You could argue it's because the nudity in the Timberlake video is a little more "artistic," and the lyrics aren't nearly as explicit as those in "Blurred Lines"-- you're talking about "I look around and everything I see is beautiful/Cause all I see is you" vs. "I know you want it/But you're a good girl/The way you grab/Must wanna get nasty." But as much as I wish neither video existed, and that anybody could think of a way to use women in music videos without turning them into objects
"Tunnel Vision" may be the next Justin Timberlake destined to get stuck in our heads, following "Mirrors" and "Suit & Tie" off the artist's latest album The 20/20 Experience. And with that single comes a racy bit of cover art, which we've embedded at the bottom to give you time not to scroll down as it's a little bit not-safe-for-work. It contains nudity… kind of. The image depicts the silhouette of a naked woman set over Timberlake's face, so the skin involved is all his, but it's all about the tunnel vision here.
Justin Timberlake is still at the top of his game. The singer has been doing well with his newest single, “Mirrors,” but he’s had even better news this week in the realm of album sales, where the 32-year-old has managed to top David Bowie’s new album in sales in the U.K. and is expected to be the #1 title this week. Just a few days into its official release, The 20/20 Experience has debuted as the quickest-selling title of 2013.
The CW made an event of the debut of Justin Timberlake's new album The 20/20 Experience with The iHeartRadio Album release Party with Justin Timberlake, an hourlong special that featured performances by Timberlake, along with the world premiere of the "Mirrors" music video (above), which Timberlake dedicated to his grandparents William and Sadie. I like to think I'm not the only person who teared up the first time they watched it. Or the second time.
Justin Timberlake jumped the gun earlier this week, ntroducing The 20/20 Experience early on iTunes. Hard copies of the one man wonder’s newest release will hit shelves tomorrow, but according to Questlove, the man has another round coming in November.
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are up to their old tricks again, documenting the "History of Rap" with an excellent rap medley. The above video, which comes from Friday night's episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is the fourth of the musical segment, and according to the musician and late night talk show host, it's the last one… until the next time they do it, of course.
And we thought Timberlake looked good in a "Suit & Tie"? The segment on the NBC late night comedy showed us that the artist can rock a colorful striped suit, a bow tie and a boater hat nearly as well. Timberlake sang his hit song off the 2006 album FutherSex/LoveSounds with a ragtime barbershop quartet, which included the musically and vocally gifted talk show host, Jimmy Fallon, himself. I think Fallon was actually the most active with the dance moves and gestures.
Hot off the heels of his well-received fifth hosting stint on Saturday Night Live, Justin Timberlake has decided to jump the gun ahead of his album’s March 19 release date and make the LP’s ten tracks available to stream on iTunes. As of this morning, The 20/20 Experience, is available to fans, and if initial reaction is any indication, the music is extremely satisfying.
Last night, Justin Timberlake joined a small and elite group of men and women who have hosted Saturday Night Live five or more times. To celebrate the occasion, many of Timberlake’s fellow five-timers appeared including Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Candice Bergen and Alec Baldwin. Not surprisingly, ratings for the extravaganza were through the roof and fortunately for all involved, early reviews of the show from both fans and critics have been largely positive.
After weeks of teasing a tour and a potential partnership, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake have announced they will embark on a short and sweet tour together in North America. Of course, the two men both have a little bit of cockiness in their respective attitudes, and will be calling the tour The Legends of the Summer tour.
Today’s been a big day for concert news, with Morrissey creating a vegetarian venue and this year’s Bonnaroo lineup getting announced. Those are both headlining stories, but probably not quite as exciting as the official word that Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z are both performing this summer at the same festival.
Most musicians are content to quietly roll out a music video and hope it gets some airplay. Not Justin Timberlake. He put up a countdown on his personal website, released the audio from his song “Suit And Tie”, announced Social Network director David Fincher would helm a live action clip and this morning, finally churned out said clip for Valentine’s Day. Given all the hoopla, his fans have every right to be extra critical, but luckily, the footage lives up to the hype.
Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake recently teamed up for Timberlake’s single “Suit & Tie,” and now the two men may be taking the show on the road. If you watched this year’s Grammy Awards, you’ve gotten a taste of what the two men will present if and when they tour together.
David Fincher and Justin Timberlake are getting back into business together. The Social Network director and actor are collaborating on a new project: the official music video for Timberlake’s musical comeback hit, “Suit & Tie” from his upcoming third studio album, The 20/20 Experience.
As part of his return to music, Justin Timberlake has been lining up some live gigs. He’s starting with a Super Bowl event this weekend and on Wednesday Grammy affiliates announced Timberlake would return to the big event to perform for the first time in four years—which is pretty fitting, considering the man has won six of the awards throughout his career.
