Anheuser-Busch announced Thursday that it had hired the actor and musician to be the “creative director” for its Bud Light Platinum brand.
What exactly does that mean? It’s not entirely clear, but the company said in a statement that Timberlake would “provide creative, musical and cultural curation for the brand,” and will appear in a Bud Light Platinum commercial set to air on Sunday during the Grammy Awards.
“Justin Timberlake is one of the greatest creative minds in the entertainment industry, and his insights will help us further define Bud Light Platinum’s identity in the lifestyle space,” Anheuser-Busch (BUD) vice president of U.S. marketing Paul Chibe said in a statement. Timberlake said Bud Light Platinum “brings a refined, discerning aesthetic to beer that plays well with what I’m doing.”
Timberlake is the latest in a series of musicians to snag “creative director” gigs with big companies. Last week, struggling smartphone maker BlackBerry (BBRY) tapped singer Alicia Keys to be its creative director, a title given to Lady Gaga by Polaroid and to will.i.am by Intel (INTC, Fortune 500).
i’m more of a coors light drinker…. but if he’s sellin bud, I guess I’ll switch lol
Rumor has it Justin might be on Saturday night live on March 23rd, with Tina Fey hosting? nothing confirmed just a few people talking. so if its true…. we dont know, but at least we have something to think about
Justin Timberlake doesn’t have much of a track record with album titles. His solo debut was a pun on his name, and the follow-up was a surreal word collage. His new record is called The 20/20 Experience, but what does it mean? Is he particularly driven by ABC news magazines? Deeply concerned about marksman-quality vision? Establishing a bar that is exactly half as awesome as Jay-Z’s 40/40? Is it a reference to the fact that the whole experience of creating the album consisted of 20 songs in 20 days?
Timberlake revealed the science behind the name this morning on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. “It more or less came out of I was playing some of the stuff for my friends and they would come in and out of the studio and I’d say, ‘What do you think of this?’” Timberlake explained. “And my best friend said, ‘This is music that you can see,’ and for some reason that stuck with me.”
So there you have it: Justin Timberlake’s new album is a concept record about synesthesia.
Seacrest also got a few other details out of Timberlake. He also noted that the famous teaser video that Timberlake unleashed a few days before the unveiling of his new Jay-Z-assisted single “Suit & Tie” is actually from another project entirely. “That little piece of footage is from a documentary that we sort of started working on throughout the making of the album,” he told Seacrest.

Justin Timberlake’s music comeback appears to be a very well orchestrated and highly calculated production, but he’d like you to believe it’s just sort of falling together.
JT caused the Internet to nearly implode when he posted a mysterious YouTube video to Twitter with the words, “I’m ready,” accompanied by an unexplained countdown on his official website. OMG you guys, Justin is back in the studio? Nope, he’s already done in the studio and about to drop an album.
The countdown marked the date Timberlake would release “Suit & Tie,” (featuring none other than Jay-Z), marking his first single off “The 20/20 Experience,” the long-awaited follow-up to his 2006 album, “Future Sex/Love Sounds.” Then came word David Fincher (of “The Social network” fame) would direct the “Suit & Tie” video — news that was followed by a teaser for the video, which was succeeded by a holdover lyric video. Exhausted yet? Just wait.
Timberlake made his live concert comeback on Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans, with a little Britney Spears drama tossed in for good measure, and this weekend music fans will gather ’round the flat screens to see JT rock the Grammy stage.
Now today comes the “whoops, I accidentally leaked some big news” moment, when Justin calls in to Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show. “Not to give too much away, because you know I like surprising the fans,” Timberlake says, referring to the teaser video that ignited the hype machine, “but that little piece of footage is from a documentary we started working on throughout the making of the album, which started last June.” (Well before his wedding to Jessica Biel — you know, the one she kept telling everyone she didn’t really have time to plan.)
So, along with a new marriage, a comeback album, and a rumored world tour, the world will be graced with a Justin Timberlake documentary. Seriously, could this machine be any more well-oiled? JT tells Ryan, the “I’m Ready” video “was more a little excerpt from [the doc], which I kinda thought about afterwards. Like, oh, people don’t know about the documentary. This seems a little weird.” Uh huh, totally.
Speaking to Seacrest, Timberlake also paints his days-away Grammy performance as an afterthought. “I’m still in the process of figuring all of it out,” he says. “That was kind of a whirlwind; we got a phone call, got confirmed … I’m like ‘oh wait, I should put something together.’ So I’m the process of doing something right now.”
So there you have it, folks. Now that everyone will be scrambling for more info on this top secret project, we’re guessing the next announcement will involve some fan-baiting news about who’s helming the film. We’ll also be watching this last minute, slapped-together-on-a-shoe-string Grammy performance that will inevitably present yet another newsworthy music moment.
Any predictions for how JT will oh-so-spontaneously wow us on Grammy night? It’s at least a safe bet he’ll be wearing a “Suit & Tie.”
The 20/20 Experience isn’t the only thing fans have to look forward to from Justin Timberlake. It seems like the “Suit & Tie” singer will be releasing a documentary around the making of the album, and you probably didn’t realize that you’ve already seen a sneak peek.
The countdown video Timberlake released last month added suspense to his long-awaited return to music, but turns out, it’s part of Justin’s bigger plan.
“Not to give too much away because you know I like surprising the fans, but that little piece of footage is from a documentary we started working on throughout the making of the album, which started last June,” Timberlake told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Monday (February 4). “So it was more a little excerpt from that, which I kinda thought about afterwards. Like, oh, people don’t know about the documentary. This seems a little weird.”
But fans have fully embraced Timberlake’s comeback. He took the stage for the first time in a few years over Super Bowl weekend, and despite some rumor-sparking Britney Spears comments, it seemed to be the perfect practice run for his next big gig: the 2013 Grammy Awards.
“I’m still in the process of figuring all of it out,” Timberlake said about his Grammy performance. “That was kind of a whirlwind, we got a phone call, got confirmed … I’m like ‘oh wait, I should put something together.’ So I’m the process of doing something right now.”
Even though Timberlake didn’t want to give too much away, he did say to be prepared for “some stuff you haven’t heard.”
In addition to perfecting his upcoming Grammy performance, the former boy bander is also putting the finishing touches on his much anticipated album The 20/20 Experience, due out March 19.
“It more or less came out of I was playing some of the stuff for my friends and they would come in and out of the studio and I’d say, ‘What do you think of this?’” Timberlake said about picking out the album title. “And my best friend said, ‘This is music that you can see,’ and for some reason that stuck with me.”
Timberlake also revealed that most of the album was recorded before his October wedding to Jessica Biel and that it will be somewhat reminiscent of his 2006 FutureSex/LoveSounds album.
“We touched on the last album with the interludes and the pieces that connect the song to another song we’ve really gone deep on that part of the process a lot of the songs are really two-in-one,” Timberlake said. “For instance, when you’re putting a song out like “Suit & Tie,” it’s kind of two different things happening at the same time. I know that there aren’t many R&B dance records on the radio and I think we kind of felt, it seemed fresh to Tim [Timbaland] and I and obviously Jay we just felt like yea let’s put it out. I love the record.”
By now you’ve done a little two step or rolled your eyes at Justin Timberlake‘s return. If you’re one of the two people on earth who doesn’t care about JT’s “Suit and Tie” comeback then you’ve likely burned out already of all Justin everything. He dropped two new songs after the Super Bowl, he’s performing in LA at the Grammys and has a show immediately following the Grammys. JT season is upon us.
He called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to discuss all things The 20/20 Experience, but music queries quickly turned to a wedding planning conversation. The timing of his marriage to Jessica Biel didn’t interfere with the making of the album because most of it was already complete. Besides he did what most men would do: Leave it in the hands of the woman. “I think the men can speak for me by saying that type of process you really just say ‘Whatever you want, honey.’” Oh come on guys, women want their male partner to be active in the decision making…as long as he mostly says yes to what she wants. “Every photo, everything that you saw… I was riding shotgun. I said, ‘Whatever you want, honey.’”
Justin Timberlake took inspiration from his new single, “Suit and Tie,” when he performed his first show in almost five years Saturday night. He took the stage on Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans “all dressed up in black and white,” as the song says, down to his two-tone shoes. Backed by the Tennessee Men, a similarly dapper 15-piece band, Timberlake adopted a classic style down to the bowtie, cufflinks and part on the side of his slicked-back hair. He presided over the AXS TV/DirecTV Super Saturday Party with the ease and amusement of someone who seems entertained by the trappings of his own fame.
When he performed “Suit and Tie” late in the set, he was joined to little surprise by Jay-Z, who had been sighted in New Orleans earlier in the week. The good-natured vibe of the show extended to their chemistry, as Timberlake and Jay-Z grinned and goofed with each other, obviously enjoying their moment together.
“Suit and Tie” was the third song of the night from Timberlake’s upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience. Icy keyboard-generated strings introduced “Pusher Lover Girl,” which used drug and addiction language to explore a romantic relationship over a loping mid-tempo groove, while “That Girl” was a throwback to an easy, summertime cruising R&B jam with the chorus “I’m in love with that girl / don’t be mad at me.”
The set was geared to the party atmosphere, though, so it was shy on ballads and went easy on the unfamiliar. Shortly after 11 p.m., a red curtain rose to reveal his big band, complete with four backing vocalists and a four-piece horn section, and Timberlake rolled through such crowd pleasers as “Cry Me a River,” “FutureSex/LoveSound,” “Rock Your Body,” a dreamy “What Comes Around” and the closing “SexyBack,” with a guest appearance by Timbaland. He also covered INXS’s “I Need You Tonight” and the Jacksons’ “Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground),” bringing his backing vocalists to the front of the stage for some retro choreography that included a breakdown to “shovel the funk.”
As he and the singers did a dance step that resembled digging a hole, the moment – like the show itself – presented Timberlake as somebody so comfortable with his art that he doesn’t have to take himself too seriously. His Saturday Night Live appearances certainly made that clear, and on Super Bowl weekend, he danced with a bouncy grace that was all his own, but he could also play it old school and be assured the audience was with him.
Timberlake didn’t forget the occasion for the party, though – something easy to do on a night when Stevie Wonder, Lil Wayne and Rascal Flatts were also playing parties in New Orleans. He asked who in the audience thought the Baltimore Ravens would win, and who thought the 49ers would win. He then asked the Niners fans, “How many of you are just following the bookies?”
