T.I. and Justin Timberlake came together on a huge hit back in back in 2006 with “My Love,” and it looks like they may have another big collaboration in the works. Tip randomly showed up at the red carpet for the new Hunger Games film, and spoke to Clevver News about The JT feature, his acting career, and a party he may or may not have attended at Bieber’s house.
The ATL rapper began by listing the acting projects he’s got in the pipeline. “Right now, I’m currently filming the third season of ‘House of Lies’ with Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, and I’m co-starring along with Mekhi Phifer, and we’re just having a phenomenal time,” he said. “It premiers in January.”
When asked about his work with Justin Timberlake, Tip made sure to confirm that there was a record coming, but didn’t go into any more detail than that. “Well, you know, I just happen to have some,” said T.I. of new music with JT. “I just happen to have some, thank you for asking.”
As far as a recent party at the Biebz, T.I. was strangely tight-lipped about the festivities. “Well you know I will not have any mention of any of that,” he joked. “If I was there, I’m sure it was a good time, but I will not confirm or deny any allegations.”
Justin Timberlake and SAG-AFTRA have reached an agreement for the dancers on his 20/20 Experience World Tour to be covered by the SAG-AFTRA Touring Agreement, the union announced Friday.
Under the agreement, performer earnings count toward pension and health benefits eligibility. The deal also provides touring companies with what the union called “improved budget flexibility through direct negotiations with performers.”
SAG-AFTRA president Ken Howardapplauded Timberlake and the SAG-AFTRA dancers who worked to unionize the 20/20 Experience tour.
“This is a wonderful result for SAG-AFTRA members and Justin Timberlake. Justin was very open to signing the agreement and personally making sure the deal got done,” Howard said. “As a leading recording artist and actor, Justin’s support for his fellow SAG-AFTRA members in unionizing his tour was a key element in concluding this agreement. I thank him for taking the lead.”
This is the first time that member performers have successfully organized dancers employed on a specific tour under the SAG-AFTRA Touring Agreement. The agreement was previously utilized to cover touring back-up singers for James Taylor,Reba McIntire, Martina McBride, Blues Traveler, Josh Groban and Jefferson Starship.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, SAG-AFTRA national executive director David White called the agreement “precedent setting” and added, “I’m genuinely excited about this deal. We are expanding our presence in this area.”
Assistant national executive director for sound recordings Randy Himes also praised Timberlake and the dancers.
“The physical demands of touring are tough on our artist members and those members that tour with them,” Himes said. “I applaud the dancers for their dedication to this new agreement and give Justin the credit he richly deserves for stepping up and taking care of his elite dancer group. It’s just another reason why Justin continues to be one of the most respected performers in the media entertainment industry.”
yay another year on the list! woo hoo
If you need any idea of how hot JT has been this year, just know that one of his music videos came with a warning. Yep, the 32-year-old is on fire, popping up in commercials, selling out concerts, releasing two albums and two films and, oh yeah, finding time to reunite with ‘NSYNC at the VMAs and travel the world with new BFF Jay-Z. And let’s be real: He’s very easy on the eyes.
Jimmy Fallon will host the Christmas episode of SNL, and Justin will be the musical guest! Always love these two, and I have insanely high expectations for the show. Justin probably will appear in a couple sketches. I’m curious to know what songs Justin would choose to perform.

Justin Timberlake’s been all around the world, but he’ll never stray too far from his Tennessee roots.
In fact, Jessica Biel’s hubby might end up back in Nashville! J.T. brought his 20/20 Experience tour to Music City on Wednesday, Nov. 20, and per The Tennessean, it’s not a matter of “if” this Southern boy will move her, but “when!”
“I spend way more time in Nashville than people realize,” said Justin, who was born in Millington, Tenn., a small town just outside of Memphis. “I admire this town a lot. They take care of their own. There are not a lot of places in the world, much less America, that do that. It’s just a great place.”
“I think there could be a place for me here in the future for sure,” he said. “Absolutely I will work in Nashville. That’s probably the next move for me. The next move for me is to sink some teeth in here.”
But wait—that’s not all! Justin told Sirius XM’s The Highway, “I still got my eyes set on a Best Country Album. There is time for that.”
There is definitely time for that, and Tennessee will always be proud to welcome a true Southern gentleman like Justin back home!
