I feel a little bit like a fly on the wall and like I’m listening to conversations I’m in no way a part of. But Justin Timberlake started it.
After he went to a Garth Brooks show on Thursday (Dec. 4) — the first of Brooks’ four St. Louis shows — Timberlake posted an Instagram photo from his meet-and-greet with this caption:
“One of my IDOLS. Garth … You are a MASTER of your craft. I am in awe of you, still.”
(And right after that, the people at Eskimo Joe’s — Stillwater, Oklahoma’s Jumpin’ Little Juke Joint Servin’ Up Smiles Since 1975 — retweeted Brooks’ tweet. Because if you look closely, he is wearing one of their hoodies in the photo.)
Timberlake, who has been a fan (and imitator) of Brooks since he was a little boy, was able to catch the show on one of his rare nights off. He had a show in Dallas on Wednesday and one in Oklahoma City on Friday.
And Timberlake created a pretty serious stir as he watched/sang/danced from the second row, as opposed to hiding away in a private box somewhere in the arena. Lady Gaga and her boyfriend, Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney did the same thing, opting for regular seats in the house when they saw one of Brooks’ Chicago shows back in September.
There’s just so much mutual love and respect between Brooks and Timberlake. They seem to literally be people loving people, so I think they should collaborate on a song in the very near future.
And technically j is up for two

Justin Timberlake is no Drake. While there are numerous differences between the two musically, we’re here to talk about sports.
When people accuse Drake of being a “bandwagon fan” (i.e. he reps random teams as long as they win), they might be on to something. Or maybe Drake just has a lot of athletic friends.
But when people accuse Justin Timberlake of bandwagoning, well, it’s a different story — especially if it’s about the Memphis Grizzlies, Timberlake’s hometown team, which he partly owns. One Grizzlies fan may not have had all that information, though, when he called out the former ‘N Sync star of less-than-genuine behavior after Timberlake posted a celebratory tweet about Monday night’s 119-93 smackdown on the Houston Rockets.
Justin Timberlake is famous for a lot of things, including his sweet crooning and frosted tips as a member of the quintessential ’90s boy band N’Sync (see also: Brittany Spears), his turn as an actor (he notably played Sean Parker in The Social Network) and his SNL hosting prowess.
In addition to all this, Timberlake is quite the businessman. Over the years, the singer/actor/host has invested in a long list of ventures, all with varying degrees of success. He is the owner or co-owner of asocial network (MySpace, so that one clearly didn’t pan out), tequila brand (which is doing well), barbeque restaurant chain, golf course, professional basketball team and fashion line. (removed all the a’s before each venture)
Today, he officially added another venture to the list: The audio-technology company AfterMaster — which makes “any audio source dramatically clearer, fuller and louder” — announced that Timberlake is joining as a co-owner.
