And by week I mean year. Seriously, 2013 is going to be the year of JT (hopefully that rubs off on me since we have the same initials) and it is only March. Not even a full 3 months into the year and the hooplah over Justin is ridiculous. He will have to do something insane to wreck this for himself. I think at this point, even if his album flops, that’ll still be press that works in his favor.
So let’s review why JT is having the best year ever:
He got to debut his new single “Suit and Tie “with arguably the biggest rapper around, Jay-Z, at the GRAMMYs, and in black and white (obviously for TV purposes only. He doesn’t have THAT much power…or does he?)
Next, he hosted SNL this past weekend for the 5th time, and to make sure that it went well, since they heavily promoted it, they brought out the big guns. Chevy Chase, Alec Baldwin, Dan Aykroyd, and Steve Martin all made appearances. In fact, Dan and Steve reprise their roles as a couple of wild and crazy guys in the Dating Game skit. I for one have to admit that I am not a huge fan of Justin’s acting chops. He was alright in the Social Network, but whenever he tries to do the RomCom thing it seems forced. I felt the same way about his monologue. However, the Vegan-Ville skit was right on the money.
(There are a view curse words because it is SNL afterall)
I will now have the Harlem shake stuck in my head all day, which is the worst since there are not many words and it makes me want to flail around like a fish out of water. Annnnnnnd I’m listening to it as I write this. Thanks, JT.
What else is Justin doing this week? Oh you know, just hanging out with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night EVERY NIGHT. But, no one seems to mind. Is there anyone else that has been able to go from Disney to a super famous boy band to actor to ruler of the world? I can’t think of one. But the ladies love JT for obvious reasons (I mean he did bring sexy back. You thought I could go through a whole post without saying that?) and dudes want to hang out with him and have him as a wing man.
Like I said, there are 9 more months left of 2013. Let’s see what else Justin Timberlake has up his sleeves.
