Justin Timberlake Says Hi To Your Mother

Ray LaMontagne Brings “Trouble” To A Rocky SNL

SNL continued to surprise me with its music picks by inviting backwoods troubadour Ray LaMontagne to join Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson at Studio 8H over the weekend. Ray would have been a perfect fit during the show's earliest years (think Joe Cocker, Levon Helm, Van Morrison), whereas booking the raspy singer/songwriter in 2009 seems somewhat… More »

The Roots, Van Morrison, Justin Timberlake Help Cover The Demographic Spread On The Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Debut

Add Robert De Niro and you've got yourself an opening night bill trying to please everyone on a show that's otherwise clearly about targeting young men and their twitter accounts. So maybe the Astral Weeks-pimping Van Morrison fit on the show about as well as he did that silly suit (although "Sweet Thing" is and… More »

Liveblogging The 2009 Grammys

Welcome to the Grammys 2009, which promises to be a very special night in which Radiohead will perform with the USC marching band (proof!) and Robert Plant & Alison Krauss will win all the awards.

New Lonely Island Video – “Jizz In My Pants”

Andy Samberg pulled Lonely Island writing partner Jorma Taccone on cam (also Justin Timberlake, Molly Simms, and Meadow Soprano) for an orgasmic digital-short song on SNL this weekend. It's the first single from LI's forthcoming album Incredibad (out 2/10). If ever an LP earned a Premature Evaluation, it's one with a song called "Jizz… More »

Justin Timberlake Steals The Spotlight On SNL

As the official host it was Paul Rudd's job to undress for Andy Samberg, but JT stopped by this weekend's SNL too, and went bottomless as one of Beyoncé's backup dancers. He's also bringing turkey back. More »

New Madonna Video (Feat. Justin Timberlake & Timbaland ) – “4 Minutes (To Save The World)”

Madonna wears a belted bathing suit like (too) few others. She gives us additional wardrobe malfunctions in the video for Timbaland-produced, JT-accompanied "4 Minutes (To Save The World) (which is just about how much time you likely have to watch this thing before Warner removes it from YouTube). In the clip, Madonna… More »

New Madonna (Feat. Justin Timberlake) – “4 Minutes (To Save The World)”

Madonna's new single was leaked by a French DJ a couple days ago -- and now it's popping up everywhere. Like here. A lot of fun, oui? For their part, Warner's been really vigilant about folks YouTubing or otherwise uploading it. They issued a copyright claim post haste, but nobody should be surprised that… More »

New Gnarls Barkley Video (Feat. Justin Timberlake) – “Run”

Forever pop culture savvy, the odd couple of Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse draft Justin Timberlake (who's showing a lot of his kebab online today) to play host of a TV dance party soundtracked by the tune's retro party soul. Given, we couldn't have asked for another "Crazy," but this is pretty damn good. More »

Lou Reed, Justin Timberlake & Tom Hanks To Help Rock ‘N’ Roll Congratulate Itself

Good news, gang: now the list of people you didn't give a shit about getting into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame has a slightly less give-a-shittable list of people inducting them! Madonna will be honored by the legendary Mickey Mousekateer/actress/box-fucker Justin Timberlake; the Dave Clark Five will be inducted by iconic… More »

Justin Timberlake’s Superbowl Commercial

How many slurps of Pepsi does it take to get Justin Timberlake into your backyard? We lost count. But in this commercial for Pepsi and Amazon's MP3 Store, the journey includes one of the creepier Andy Samberg cameo's on record along with Tony Romo in an SVU sans Jessica (and yet this is still… More »

Beyoncé & Sugarland Perform “Irreplaceable” @ AMAs

If you tuned into the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted American Music Awards, on top of that of Montreal T-Mobile spot and a wiseass JT-via-satellite, you might have caught Georgia country crew Sugarland and Beyoncé fiddling through a bluegrassy "Irreplaceable." Sugarland's been doing the cover in concert for at least six months, but never with Beyoncé. Which… More »

Inside Andy Samberg & JT’s Box: A Dick And An Emmy

Hope neither Andy nor Justin are packing too much heat; now they have to make room for some real hardware in that little box. The AP reports that "(Blank) In A Box" took home the Creative Arts Emmy (honoring technical and other achievements in TV -- file this one under "other") for best original… More »

Liveblogging The 2007 VMAs

You've been waiting patiently all weekend, so let's get this thing going. Welcome to this year's MTV Video Music Awards, this year featuring three whole awards dedicated to videos! We've been hypnotized by John Norris's amazing new wig, Kanye's plastic-looking facial hair, and Paris's wonky eye. But all that's behind us. Live blog begins ... More »

New Duran Duran (Feat. Justin Timberlake & Timbaland) – “Night Runner”

Best way to teach an old dog new tricks? Get a new dog! That's the route of the much ballyhooed Duran Duran/Timberlake/Timbaland collab, anyway (we don't condone puppy replacement). Far afield from the halcyon "Rio" days, DD get a typically chunky/funky throwaway Timba beat (and contractually obligated Timba vocal) on "Night Runner," while Simon Le… More »

New 50 Cent (Feat. Justin Timberlake) Video – “Ayo Technology”

Turns out Elton John's not alone: 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake hate the Internet, too! Although, honestly, we can't imagine Sir Elton belting, "I'm tired of using technology / Why don't you sit down on top me." (Or maybe we can?) The rest of the neo-Luddite manifesto includes finally appointed mansions, dope suits, fast… More »

Hipster’s Delight: Justice Remix Justin Timberlake

Basic math, kids: something x something = something squared. So ... Justin x Justice = cool to a higher power? Well we'd love to supply the snark, but those French electro kids are on a hot streak and it's straight fire on this one. "LoveStoned" never struck us as a great choice for a single… More »

New Ryan Adams Video – “Halloweenhead” & “Off Broadway” Live

Mr. Adams has prepared his first vid from Easy Tiger, now showing at Yahoo. And though it's mostly a bag of cutting snark for Interpol's clip earlier today, at least "The Heinrich Maneuver" consisted of original footage. Ry's offering for "Halloweenhead" comprises nothing but frames taken from a vintage Scandinavian disco dancing instructional… More »
