They still have Video Music Awards on Mtv? I thought Mtv was just reality shows nowadays.

The VMAs are a reality tv show.

Well it's scripted but then so are most reality shows. I just didn't think there were that many music videos anymore that would warrant an awards show. But then the last time I turned on Mtv was when Beavis and Butthead briefly returned. Before that it was some time in the '90s, so what do I know.

They should say they signed an exclusivity contract and show up on Colbert a month later.

NSync is nostalgic enough for a reunion?

In 2000, my then 12 year old wanted to see them. We saw them and it was a great show. When your well behaved, shy, smart daughter wants to do something, you do it. Thanks to her I saw Hanson too. Not as great, still kinda cool. These were the only concerts that I wore earplugs too, and I saw Deep Purple, Zep, Stones, and Queen from near front-row in the 70s. 20,000 screaming tweens is a phenomenon that should be weaponized.

Got dammit.  Nobody told me the VMAs were down the street from me.  I could have made a point of indignantly avoiding them rather than just not knowing about them.

Twelve years ago I'm sure you'd be hearing, "YOU A-HOLE!," from the majority of Farkers here, myself included, as well as several calling him a lucky SOB for banging Britney.  Twelve years later we all still think NSYNC is horrible, but Timberlake is a genius, and Britney has teh crazy bug.

/and to this day the video to 'Cry Me a River' is probably the closest we'll ever get to seeing what kind of video Lindsey Buckingham would've done back in the days of his most infamous breakup
 
2013-08-20 01:27:05 PM
This is just a quick thing.  The Timberlake brand is still very profitable.  He needs a flop album and tour to really get into an 'NSync reunion.  You know.  For the fan$.

Nope. Timberlake is still a boy-band shiatmaker, you're just a sucker for packaging. You're the one who can be trained to think anything so long as you're convinced you're not alone in thinking it. Care to try out these magic beans I picked up?

NSync is no better or worse than any other pop crap from Justine Beiber to the early Beatles. It's all the same shiat.

The teenager buried deep, deep within my psyche is very, very excited about this for some reason.  My sister and I, back when we were much younger than we are now, were fans of 'NSYNC, even saw them in concert a few times.  I went because she wasn't old enough to go on her own, but they still put on one hell of a show.  I would think though, it's going to be quite awkward for the other guys, only because Justin Timberlake is so goddamn huge, it's going to be more like he's the main act and they're the back-up dancers/singers.

I love that he did his own voice, even with that being the joke.

If Justin can actually get them to do "Dick in a Box" on stage, that would actually be funny.  Otherwise, no thanks.

years ago read how that band was flown around the world on New Year's Eve so fans could ring in the celebration with their favorite band, time zone to time zone. i felt bad for them, that must have been exhausting. for all the work they did i hope those guys have mad money in the bank.

Lip-synching and dancing a 20 to 30 minute, tops, choreographed routine 4 times with travel breaks in between is hard work?

The rotational speed of the Earth is roughly 600 miles per hour at the latitude of Edinburgh and Moscow. The further south one goes, the faster the rotation is. London, 652 mph; New York, 783 mph; Los Angeles, 860 mph. At the equator the rotational speed is 1032 mph. So unless they were in a Concord, there aren't any passenger planes capable of "keeping up" with New Years, even if all the appearances were on the tarmac at each airport.

How much time did he spend reminding them he gets to go home every night and bury his face into Jessica Beils ass?  'Cause I'd be saying that every five minutes.

My favorite piece of 'You're shiatting me" trivia is still the fact that Sephiroth's voice lines in Kingdom Hearts 1 were done by Lance Bass. Seriously.

Chris and Joey still live in Orlando and are very, very nice. They're very cool guys and definitely did not let the fame get to their heads (or they're grateful that people still think of them as celebrities). I have nothing bad to say about them.

They were less cookie cutter than most boy bands of the day. Still not my music type, so 14-year-old me hated them, but 31-year-old me thinks they were at least less grating than the rest, which is probably why their popularity endures with the "likes top 40" set. Timberlake's solo work is also maddeningly catchy. I mean, who here DOESN'T know what "I'm bringing sexy back" sounds like?

Oh, and Timberlake is a respectable actor. He's no Gary Oldman or even Guy Pierce, but his acting is believable and completely un-wooden. For all the problems In Time had, Justin's acting wasn't one if them.
