Press Play - Justin Timberlake

Thank goodness for Walt Disney's ever-lasting love affair with a rodent. If it wasn't for the animated Mickey Mouse, there'd be no affluent Disneyland and, more importantly, no Mickey Mouse Club. Then there'd be no Justin Timberlake.

Had JT not joined the club he wouldn't have been part of the successful boy band N'Sync. Then his second solo offering FutureLove/SexSounds would probably never have come into being.

For all we know, we'd be left with Borat to epitomise virility and titillate adolescent and adult minds alike. Not on my watch, ladies!

Thank goodness that Mr Pop himself, who decided to bring sexy back, looks the part. In this, his second video off the new album, two songs are squeezed into one. The video incorporates a lot of dancing, a cameo appearance by producer-extraordinaire Timbaland and the rap KING himself TI in, get this: a double-breasted penguin suit.

What's your flava?
Unusual: Justin adds a touch of class to his somewhat dubious (after the Superbowl saga) reputation by using dancers who are fully dressed, so we're forced to focus only on their dance moves. Usual: Minus ten points for including the Bunnies-inspired barely dressed babes who aren't part of the dance ensemble but merely pose with TI.

On point?
The dancing is well choreographed and the steps are in synch with the beat (Timbaland is a genius). The video definitely enhances the song's appeal . Exhibit A: Because the video draws you in so much, you end up singing the cheesy lyrics.

What's the story?
On Timberlake's part, I vehemently stress: there's no storyline. In TI's verse, however, he ignores (oh, the pretence!) the near-naked lass beside him, bound to him by an elastic band, and retells how he'd hate to cancel his vacation but if she doesn't come with he won't die. "Forget your face, I swear I will," he enthuses.

Minute man or marathon man?
Exhibit B: I'm standing in the lift. As the doors open, a dark-haired girl with a nose ring, clad in Goth-like black garb, enters. Her phone rings. Instead of a classic Marilyn Manson song, My Love is her videotone. She sings along for a while and with her "hello" I smile thinking JT has crossed over in a major way and that makes him a marathon man.

Pimped out or played out?
A rather minimalist approach is used. The dichotomy is enhanced by the constant shifting of light. The video is shot in black and white so the background always seems flawless. Even these "bad boys" look immaculate, similar to Snoop Dogg's Drop it like it's Hot.

Rewind that
The best shot is when TI carelessly throws his passport at the camera. In slow motion it rolls in the air and conveniently opens up just where his photo is, then freezes. By using the camera's deep-focus we see a close-up of the picture in the passport and TI with the "bunny" in the background, all in the same frame. I love that.

Justin Timberlake Shines at MTV Europe

Pop idol Justin Timberlake, host of the MTV Europe Music Awards, last night won the Best Male Artist and Best Pop Act awards.
The singer of "Sexy Back" took home two of the top prizes while pop diva Christina Aguilera won top female act.
Madonna who was up for three awards for her "Confessions on a Dance Floor" album, failed to take home any prize.
Kanye West took home the Best Hip Hop Act prize, and the English band Muse clinched the Best Alternative Act award.
The MTV awards show was created in 1994 as an alternative to the Grammys, the US music awards show, and is hosted by a different European city every year. This year it was hosted in the Danish capital, Copenhagen. It was attended by more than 8 000 people.

Justin Timberlake Wins Best Pop, Male Artist Crowns at MTV Europe Music Awards

Host Justin Timberlake grabbed the Best Pop and Best Male awards while the Red Hot Chili Peppers won Best Album at the MTV Europe Music Awards on Thursday.

Christina Aguilera was named Best Female artist and Kanye West took home the Best Hip Hop honor at the annual awards show broadcast live in 17 countries from the Danish capital.

"Well, it's nice to win for the most prestigious award tonight," Timberlake told thousands of screaming fans.

British band Muse won the Best Alternative category, which they also grabbed two years ago. Depeche Mode, the 1980s veterans whose signature sound has influenced many other artists, earned the Best Group award.

"Wow, guys, this is totally unexpected," said Rihanna as she received the Best R&B award. In September, the 18-year-old music star won the same category in the Music of Black Origin award in London.

The show was split between two venues: a convention hall on the city outskirts where Timberlake was in charge and an outdoor stage on Copenhagen's main square where R&B songstress Kelis introduced the artists.

Rapper Snoop Dogg, Australian band Jets and The Killers of Denmark had crowds jumping up and down in temperatures just above freezing at the outdoor venue.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers were nominated in four categories, but only won one for the album "Stadium Arcadium."

Best song went to Gnarls Barkley for "Crazy."

British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen entertained the audience with his English-mangling character Borat Sagdiyev, a Kazakh TV journalist, and poked fun at Madonna who is trying to adopt an African child.

"My only concern is that this singing transvestite will not be such a good father," Borat said in a mock videolink from Kazakhstan.

Other award presenters included R&B singer Cassie, Daniel Craig — the sixth actor to play agent James Bond — Fat Joe, "Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville and the Sugababes.

A contortionist dressed in a silver outfit presented the awards with her toe.

MTV's European awards are held in a different city every year. The winners are selected by fans across Europe.

Justin Timberlake: better singer than Robbie Williams

The pop superstar took a swipe at Robbie Williams when asked if his forthcoming tour would match up to the ‘Angels’ singer’s recent ‘Close Encounters’ world tour.
Justin said: “I’m way better than him.”
The 25-year-old singer, who is dating ‘Charlie’s Angels’ actress Cameron Diaz, also hinted at what makes his relationship so successful - a good sex life.
When asked what his secret talents were, Justin coyly replied: “Those sorts of talents I like to keep a secret.”
Despite boasting about his bedroom prowess, Justin – who is hosting the MTV European Music Awards in Copenhagen, Denmark, tonight (02.11.06) - insists he doesn’t feel like a sex symbol.
The ‘SexyBack’ singer – who previously dated Britney Spears - said: “I’m not going to say I haven’t created an image to go with these records. It is a part of the fun of being on stage.”

Justin Timberlake debuts his William Rast clothing line before a star-studded crowd

Pop star Justin Timberlake isn't your typical fashion designer. So the runway debut of his William Rast clothing line wasn't a typical fashion show.

Rather than show the collection at the official Los Angeles Fashion Week site, Culver City's Smashbox Studios, Timberlake took over one of Hollywood's hottest nightspots.

A runway and scores of bleacher seats were added to a section of Social Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard. The Boulevard3 club next door was used for the exclusive after-party, including a performance by Timberlake, the 25-year old Grammy-winner whose second solo CD, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," was released in September.

The impressive guest list included Wilmer Valderrama, Eve and Timberlake's girlfriend, Cameron Diaz, who gave interviews and posed for pictures before taking their front-row seats. Other A-list attendees included Paris and Nicky Hilton, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and Patrick Dempsey, aka Dr. McDreamy from TV's "Grey's Anatomy."

When the show got started, David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" blared as models with their hair styled into pompadours and makeshift mohawks previewed the spring 2007 collection dubbed "Street Sexy." Timberlake started William Rast less than a year ago with his childhood friend Trace Ayala. They named the brand after their grandfathers.
