first off, Just wanted to say I deeply apoligize for not updating all week, my best friend since first grade is moving across the country today so Iwanted to spend a lot off timee with her before she leaves.
There’s a reason expectations are so high for Justin Timberlake’s fifth outing as Saturday Night Live host: The guy is funny. Like, really funny.
If you’ve somehow forgotten just how good he is at hosting SNL, look no further than this week’s promos — which manage to pack more laughs into two minutes than entire sketches can in seven. Would that JT could steer the show every week… and run the cameras… and take care of the sound. Sigh! Check to make sure you’ve got your suit and tie, then watch the magic happen here:
Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors” became his first solo U.K. No. 1 single for six-and-a-half years on Sunday’s new sales charts, as Emeli Sandé’s “Our Version of Events” stayed atop the album survey.
Timberlake’s one previous chart-topping single in the U.K. was “SexyBack” in September 2006. That came after three of his releases peaked at No. 2 (“Like I Love You,” “Cry Me A River” and “Rock Your Body”), as would another straight afterwards, “My Love” featuring TI. He’s had two other singles bestsellers as a collaborator, on Timbaland’s “Give It To Me” in 2007, with Nelly Furtado, and Madonna’s “4 Minutes” in 2008, also featuring Timbaland.
“Mirrors” outstripped south London band Bastille’s “Pompeii” by some 13,000 sales last week, according to the Official Charts Company.
“Pompeii” follows Bastille’s No. 21 success last October with “Flaws,” and both tracks are on their debut album “Bad Blood,” released in the U.K. today (Monday). One Direction’s Comic Relief single “One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks),” which topped the chart last week, fell to No. 3.
East London rapper Wiley scored a third top ten hit with “Reload,” featuring Chip (formerly known as Chipmunk), at No. 9. Pink’s “Just Give Me A Reason,” featuring Nate Ruess, climbed 16-10.
Sandé’s album sales had advanced to 1.66 million by last Saturday at midnight, as “Events” spends a 55th consecutive week in the U.K. top ten. That’s second only for a debut album behind the Beatles’ 62 weeks for “Please Please Me” in 1963 and ’64, a record Sandé is on course to overtake at the end of April.
Mumford & Sons held at No. 2 on the new chart with “Babel,” with the “Les Miserables” score album back up 5-3 and Island’s Ben Howard steady at No. 4 with “Every Kingdom.” Four new titles started inside the top ten, led by “Amok,” the debut album by Atoms For Peace, featuring Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, their producer Nigel Godrich and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers.
West End musical star and show tunes vocalist Michael Ball debuted at No. 8 with “Both Sides Now,” his 18th chart album and sixth top tenner in an album chart career dating back to 1992. Josh Groban, meanwhile, made the U.K. album top ten for the first time with “All That Echoes.”
Former Smiths mainstay and widely-travelled collaborator Johnny Marr made his chart debut in his own name with “The Messenger,” a new entry at No. 10.
London indie band Palma Violets just missed out on a top ten debut at No. 11 with “180.” Further down the chart, there was a No. 24 start for “Lost In You” (Sony), a new studio set by 80-year-old veteran entertainer Petula Clark.
Modern-day progressive music figurehead Steven Wilson, of Porcupine Tree, entered at No. 28 with his solo set “The Raven That Refused To Sing.” UMTV/Universal’s “BRIT Awards 2013″ collection started a second week atop the compilation chart.
they tied the knot in a romantic Italian ceremony back in October of last year.
And it seems Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are still in the honeymoon period as they were spotted popping out for a romantic lunch for two on Monday.
Perhaps inspired by being back in a European location – this time Paris – the couple did what every couple should do in the City of Love, they wandered the streets looking loved-up.
He’s bringing sexy back to Fenway. Twice.
Due to overwhelming demand, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s Legends of the Summer tour has been extended to include a second show at Fenway Park on Aug. 11, piggybacking on its originally scheduled Aug. 10 performance.
Fans will be able to access tickets via two pre-sales: one for Citi cardmembers on March 4, and another via a Facebook pre-sale on March 7. LiveNation mobile app users will also have access to the March 7 pre-sale. Text LNAPP to 404040 to download the app. If you miss those early opportunities, regular tickets go on sale March 8.
Tickets to the rest of the tour, including the first Fenway show but excluding New York’s Yankee Stadium stop, went on sale today.
Boston’s famous ballpark is the only venue on the 12-city tour to have two scheduled dates so far.
Justin Timberlake and Marcus Mumford have hit the studio together, Timberlake revealed in an interview with the UK’s Capital FM.
“I did work with Marcus Mumford on the soundtrack,” Timberlake said of the Coen brothers’ upcoming Inside Llewyn Davis, which also stars Timberlake and the Mumford & Sons frontman’s wife, Carey Mulligan.
The pair’s work will also feature the Punch Brothers and production from T Bone Burnett, who also helmed the Coens’ multi-platinum O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack.
The upcoming film is a more recent look at American music, focusing on the ’60s folk scene.
“I don’t know any other world where we would get the opportunity to collaborate like that but it was so much fun,” Timberlake said. “Not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic.”
CBS Films has acquired the movie, which does not yet have a U.S. release date.
With his own album due March 19, the “Suit & Tie” singer also explained why his The 20/20 Experience tracks will be longer than radio might expect from the pop star.
“When we were making the record, I said, ‘If Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin can do 10-minute songs and Queen can do 10-minute songs then why can’t we?,” he said. “We’ll figure out the radio edits later.”
Last night i gave you screen captures and the videos from the interview and performance, but here are some High Quality images from the show.
