Justin Timberlake is one magnificent bastard.

I will admit this, but I don't want him to stop. I for one enjoy the fact that he is living out his dream and I find it highly entertaining to watch him do it.
 
2013-03-25 12:38:42 PM
I just can't not like him.
 
2013-03-25 12:38:52 PM
British guy looks like Hans Gruber.

Fixed that for me.

5 more shots and Timberlake might have been willing to toss him off a building.

To me he actually looks like a cross between Nic Cage, Tim Burton, and Stephen Fry.

I really, really WANTED to hate Justin Timberlake. I really did.

Pretty boy? Uh-huh. Boy band loser? Yeah. Dates beauty queens? Check. Decides he'll just waltz unfettered into acting since he's already famous, even while people who've made it their lives can't get noticed? Yup. Get a rope, right?

But then he has to go and be all funny, talented, self-deprecating, smart, and the sort of fundamentally-decent kind of guy you just never, ever seem to hear anything bad about...And I couldn't help myself.

God damn you, Timberlake. I guess it was just too hard to get busted with a dead hooker and a pound of coke in the trunk of a $500,000 car you crashed while drunk, huh? Why do you have to be so LIKABLE?!?
 
2013-03-25 12:42:46 PM
D*ck in a box made me a firm believer in him.
 
2013-03-25 12:45:39 PM
God that's hilarious. I want to hate that guy, but he's too awesome.
 
2013-03-25 12:47:28 PM
I will agree to the magnificent bastard but with one small caveat:  his music is ass.  Nothing manly about it, so I just can't enjoy it.

That's fine.  It is meant for chicks.  All that falsetto R&B stuff is meant to turn women on.  So I can fully understand why he does it and why a man would even have it available in his collection.  It's kind of foofy and swishy, but if it helps get ladies' panties off, it simply cannot be faulted.

A man that listens to it by himself though?  That is not a magnificent bastard.  Might be a magnificent gay bastard, which is also fine.

I hate to say it, but I'm yet to hear a song of his that I hate.  There are some that are "meh," but none that I hate.

Lends credence to my point.  Gay dudes like Timberlake's music more than straight dudes--as music instead of just something to pick up women with.  This is not to say that gay dudes don't also like harder rock and roll or rap or whatever has balls to it.

Of course, I am generalizing.  Big time.
 
2013-03-25 01:37:24 PM
He kinda is. He has taken his career back, and Gods love him for realizing that he can be a funny bastiche.
 
2013-03-25 01:46:13 PM
If you went back to 2000 and told me this is what Justin Timberlake's career would look like, I would laugh in your face.  So would everyone else you told that too.
 
2013-03-25 01:49:22 PM
i tried to hate him. i just can't. the guy is just so farking talented. I HATE HIM.

He's funny and really talented but I hate the shiat out of his music. I can't stand nonsense love songs sung in a prepubescent pitch. NPR amusingly bashed his new album last week Not that it sounds any different than his other work to me.

I don't know his actual music, but when he does stuff with Lonely Island it's pretty good.
 
2013-03-25 02:16:19 PM
If it really was good tequila, he wouldn't of taken shots. He either depreciated the value of his beverage on British tv or it really is mediocre to garbage tequila.
 
2013-03-25 02:17:13 PM
Everytime I walk by his oversized display at Target I try to think "Stupid Bastard" but it always ends up coming out "Handsome Devil". . . .
 
2013-03-25 02:17:45 PM
Yeah, I'll never hate on Timberlake, and this article is a reason why the only "late night talk show hosts" I make a real attempt to watch regularly are in Britain. Jonathan Ross and Graham Norton FTW.

I was no fan, either, until the Liquorville SNL skit. He committed so fully that the skit ended up being much better than the writing allowed.

I've said this for a while now too, in almost exactly those same words.

You want to hate the guy...he just makes it so damn hard.

Remember, gentlemen, the only reason Justin Timberlake hasn't taken your grandmother/mother/aunt/sister/niece/wife/daughter to his bed is that he hasn't got round to her yet.

The image that Justin Timberlake relies on to fill his money pit is not one of sipping and savoring fine tequila. The people who pay him do tequila shots, so he does tequila shots. Knocking back expensive tequila shots means that if you order expensive tequila shots at a club, you're rollin' like JT. Or something like that.

Don't care. I'd give him their numbers, and high-five him afterwards.
 
2013-03-25 02:26:54 PM
I'm a fan, just because of his wife and all his ex-gfs.

The talent is just a bonus.

2013-03-25 02:39:45 PM
What the hell?  That host is a sissy man.  You can't drink the hard stuff and act like it's something unless it's 150 proof or higher.  Or on fire.  Flaming drinks are acceptable to stomp around after downing.
 
2013-03-25 02:39:48 PM
Appreciate him more and more ... it's a start.
 
2013-03-25 02:41:25 PM

2013-03-25 02:41:31 PM
Look, Timberlake is cool and all, but it's hard not to do a Michael Caine impression when you've been drinking.

A couple of weeks ago, I was firmly in that corner as well. But then he did his week on Fallon, and one night he did a medley of his biggest hits. One part of the medley was his song "Cry Me a River," which in its original recorded state is an immediate channel switch for me.

But this particular time was performed as this sort of rock/gospel hybrid (with a full band of at least 12 people), and man... he knocked it out of the park.
 
2013-03-25 02:44:45 PM
Let me know when he starts touring with Slayer.

OMG, did he break out the "not-gospel-black-gospel-choir" to give his shiat sound more gravitas? I thought that got played out in the 90s. Pass me another Fruitopia!

It could happen. With Hanneman and Lombardo out, there's positions up for grabs.

/he's bringing Seasons back

Tori, can you bring out some things. The lacquered pork with that ginger confit, tuna tartar and lobster claws, that'll get us started. Christi, what do you like to drink?
 
2013-03-25 02:56:09 PM
Yeah. I can't dislike him either. He's funny. Not hard to look at, and his music is ok.

I'll say it.  I know I'll catch shiat for it but...

I like "Suit and Tie," his new single.  Reminds me of late 70's disco funk.  Groovy tune.

THIS, THIS, SO MUCH THIS!!!

I wasn't really expecting much, then I saw him in Alpha Dog and realized that he was the best actor in the movie... Next thing I know, he's hosting SNL, and I decide 'What the Hell, I don't have much else going on.', and found out the guy is funny as shiat! Damn the guy is cool... He's definitely one of my favorite SNL hosts.

Don't worry, this is fark, everyone will hate him soon enough. He'll become shallow and pedantic and everyone will turn on him.

Circle of life.
