Look at that photo. Is Jennifer Lawrence not the luckiest girl in the world? Who cares that she won a Best Actress award, she got to stand between Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper! We’re so jealous we could explode!
But the “Suit & Tie” singer and Silver Linings Playbook star weren’t the only hunks who cleaned up extra nicely for the event: Glee’s Darren Criss looked sleek and sexy, Les Misérables’ Eddie Redmayne put a twist on the classic tux and Ben Affleck was Ben Affleck. Which means really, really handsome.

Tip tells MTV News he did ‘two or three records’ with JT and Timbaland, including one tentatively titled ‘Goodbye Homey.’
Now that our long wait for new music from Justin Timberlake is officially over and his new “Suit & Tie” single is breaking records, it’s only a matter of time before we get our hands and ears on his brand-new full-length album, The 20/20 Experience.
So who else will be involved in Timberlake’s passion project? Well, “Suit & Tie” producer Timbaland will likely contribute to more songs (or potentially all of them, for that matter), and T.I. told MTV News that he worked on a handful of songs with Justin and Tim.
“Yeah, I spoke to JT. Me, him and Tim was on the phone,” T.I. told MTV News while promoting his new movie “Identity Thief,” starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. “I did a record for them at the end of last year. They were working on a record together, and I had the pleasure of assisting them on their particular record,” he said, before revealing the tentative title of one of the songs. “I think it’s called ‘Goodbye Homey,’ one of them is, and then there is another one; I did maybe two or three records with them.”
T.I. and Timberlake first collaborated on “My Love,” from 2006′s FutureSex/LoveSounds. Tip is just as excited as fans are about the new direction of Justin’s music, as evidenced by “Suit & Tie.” “It’s just great that he’s back into doing music. The record he has out with Jay right now is phenomenal,” he said of “Suit & Tie.” “It was definitely a sound that was missed.”
The rapper/actor didn’t go into too many specifics of his tracks with Timberlake and Timbaland but did explain the idea behind “Goodbye Homey.”
“Well, ‘Goodbye Homey’ is really, it’s saying goodbye to something that is very special to you,” he said. “Not necessarily a person; it could be a time of your life, it could be an experience, it could be a relationship, it could be a friend that’s passed on. ‘Goodbye Homey,’ it has so many meanings and definitions. So when you hear it, you absorb it, and then whatever it means to you is what we intended.”
Now we’ll just have to wait and see if “Goodbye Homey” or any other T.I. collabos end up on The 20/20 Experience. The album doesn’t have a release date just yet, but Timberlake promised it would drop this year — and the fact that he just booked a Super Bowl weekend gig could mean we’ll see it sooner than later.
Looks like “Suit and Tie” is bringing SexyBack in a big way. On Friday, Jan. 25, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z got together to film the music video for Timberlake’s new hit single, his first since 2006. And in keeping with the song’s lyrics — which include references to designer Alexander Wang and fashion couture — they sported some seriously stylish duds for the occasion.
The superstars redefined dapper in matching black tuxes with casually undone bow ties. Timberlake, 31, accessorized his suit with black and white dress shoes, while Beyonce’s husband, 43, opted for a classic black patent pair. However formal their clothing was, though, their attitudes were anything but. The pals were photographed goofing around between takes and laughing at each other’s silly antics.
“Suit and Tie,” produced by Timberlake’s longtime collaborator Timbaland, dropped on Monday, Jan. 14. On Thursday, Jan. 24, the singer debuted the song’s lyric video, which features Timberlake wearing — surprise! — a suit and tie while alternately smoking a cigar, driving, and drinking. Jay-Z, who raps a guest verse for the single, does not appear.
Timberlake, who wed Jessica Biel in October, recently revealed in an open letter that the hit song would be part of his new album, a follow up to 2006′s FutureSexLoveSounds.
“What I came up with is something I couldn’t be more excited about!” the ex-boy bander gushed of his third solo effort, The 20/20 Experience. “It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I’ve discovered along the way.” The recording sessions, he added, were “probably the best time” he’s had in his career, because they were about “creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.”
Justin Timberlake’s decisive celebrity moment, it appears, is very much upon us. Sure, he got married last year and he’s never really left the cultural spectrum, but in February he arrives to actually good filmmaking (sorry, In Time) with the new Coen brothers movie, and a month later his much hyped first album in seven years will drop. We’ve been getting dribs and mostly drabs of what each track of his career might look like this year — including the new Coen brothers trailer today — but let’s break down which is really bringing Justin back.
The Burgeoning Acting Career
Timberlake’s performance in The Social Network as Sean Parker made people think that maybe this guy could really become a bonafide “actor” as opposed to an “actor who was once a singer.” But there been some iffy choices: He did a tepidly received sci-fi action film and a tepidly received serious drama. Today we got our first look at Inside Llewyn Davis, the latest from the Joel and Ethan Coen. The trailer mostly focuses on Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, and John Goodman. But! There are a couple shots of Timberlake, rocking some 60s sweaters:
We have high hopes for this. Not only do the Coens come with an established pedigree, but they’ve done fine work with American folk music before in O Brother, Where Art Thou? (There is obviously a distinction between the two types of music in these movies, but sixties folk is a descendant of the traditional music in O Brother.) We don’t see much of what Timberlake does in this trailer, so we can’t comment on his performance, but consensus so far is that the film looks really good for this dead time of the year in movies:
When Justin Timberlake recently announced plans to release his first solo album in nearly seven years, fans of the “SexyBack” singer weren’t the only ones who were surprised. The singer-turned-actor’s former ‘N Sync bandmate, Lance Bass, says the group was unaware Timberlake was once again making music.
“He’s been so busy and even hid from us that he did an album, so I was as surprised as everyone else that he released this new music,” Bass, 33, told Us Weekly at EMA’s Green Works event at Sur in L.A. Jan. 23. “He’s been busy with that, so we haven’t really been able to catch up.”
Even so, Bass admitted he’s a big fan of “Suit & Tie (feat. Jay-Z),” Timberlake’s first single from his upcoming third album, The 20/20 Experience. “I love it!” Bass raved of the mid-tempo R&B track. “I think it’s something that no one expected him to do. I think everyone was expecting him to do a crazy [dance track], but he went back to his roots and I like it. It’s very nice!”
Like Timberlake, Bass is working on his own solo album, his first ever. “I’ve waited 10 years to be able to do it, and now I finally found the time this year,” said Bass, who had competed on Dancing With the Stars in 2008. “I just needed a break from music. When you do something as big as ‘N Sync, you don’t get so burnt out of it, but you need a different direction and my mind needed to go somewhere else.”
Bass’ album will be inspired by his Southern roots. “It won’t be a crazy, full country album,” the Mississippi native told Us. “I’d love to come out with some pop record that has that essence of rock ‘n’ roll and country.”
Though ’90s boy bands New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees and Boys II Men are joining forces for a summer tour, Bass doesn’t see ‘N Sync reuniting on the road. “We’re all just very content with what’s happening in our lives right now and we don’t want to get burnt out again,” said Bass, who’s been dating actor Michael Turchin since 2011. “Hopefully in the next few years we can do something, but I think right now isn’t the time for us.”
It doesn’t seem Timberlake is too eager to hang out with the band, however. When he wed actress Jessica Biel in Italy on Oct. 19, 2012, he didn’t invite his former bandmates Bass, J.C. Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick. “From what I know, it’s because he didn’t want all of us there making it about a reunion rather than a wedding,” Kirkpatrick said in a previous radio interview. “It was [Jessica's] day. She’s amazing, so we wanted to make sure it was about her.”
