I apologize for taking forever to do this but better later than never right? JT’s fans are so awesome so for me it was very hard to choose a single fan of the month, so I decided to have 2 once again. And this time around it’s time for the girls to take the spotlight again!
For November I decided to feature fans that will do just about anything to go to a JT concert. So without further ado. Your JT fans of the month:
Melissa Bates: Melissa travels all across the United States to attend every possible JT concert . She can go broke but that wont stop her from attending a Justin show. I admire that a lot.
BJ Cogley: The shocking thing about BJ is that during a Shriners concert she tattoed a picture of JT on her back and made JT sign it. Now how outrageous and cool is that? She has a Sexy Back now…literally. (I posted about this before btw)

Favorite hobbies: I’m a live music junkie, so my favorite hobby is concerts. I’ve already done over 20 this year so far. Seeing so many shows is where my love of concert photography started from. I love capturing a moment in a show that most would forget about and that one single image can remind you of the entire show! Other than music, I’m an obsessed Scandal fan!
Have you met JT? Yes. I’ve met him a few times at a few different events. A moment to remember was in NYC at “The Living Room.” I was there to see Matt Morris and long story short I turned around and he was standing right there. It was one of those moments that you have to do a double take because you are sure you saw someone you have known for forever, and bam there he was. There was also that moment he stole my sharpie at the Shriner’s event, and after he was done signing autographs for everyone he returned it to me!
How many JT/Nsync concerts have you attended: I would guess around 20! Only one down, but at least 5 more to go this year!
Your favorite JT song: Picking a favorite song depends on my mood really. “Gone” will always be one of those well written songs that let’s be honest started his solo career. But a song that always forces me to stop and take in both the lyrics and the music is “Until the End of Time.” It’s just simply beautiful, especially live.
Your favorite JT album: FutureSex/LoveSounds. I don’t think any album, by anyone, could top that masterpiece.
Your favorite JT movie: Friends with Benefits for obvious reason, but as far as acting goes his best role to date, The Social Network.
Describe JT in 3 words: Smart. Talented. Wise.
Your favorite JT feature: Can anything top that smile? Okay maybe those blue eyes!
Dream collaboration: I want a power ballad with someone like Kelly Clarkson or Sara Bareilles.
A photo of your most personal/valuable / rare JT item: A friend of mine took the photo I have with him and had it put on a notebook that says, “Dreams come true…” That item says more to me than just an image of Justin and I on it. It reminds me of all the things that I want to do. It’s like combining my love of music with the reality of making dreams come true.
Location: Pasadena, MD
Hobbies: watching sports (Go Ravens!), keeping up with all of JT”s projects whether it’s music, movies, tequila, restaurant, clothing line, cologne line, Memphis Grizzlies, MySpace, tv interviews, radio interviews, tv performances and of course jamming out to his music all the time
Have you met JT: after a long 15 year wait entering every contest and even emailing Ellen and Oprah over the years I finally met him in Vegas Oct. 1, 2011. I’ll never forget that anniversary.
Fav song: Before I met him I was in the VIP section at one of his shows and he came over and grabbed my hand during LoveStoned so that automatically became my favorite lol.
Fav album: FutureSex LoveSounds
Fav movie: Runner Runner
JT in 3 words: life’s greatest treasure
Fav feature: how can you pick a favorite when he’s absolutely perfect in every way?? Ok if I have to choose I’ll say his well kept manicured hands (not many men have such nice looking hands)
Fav JT moment: meeting him and having him sign my tattoo!!!!
Dream collaboration: Bruno Mars
Most valuable item: would my signed tattoo be a valuable item? If I have to pick something not attached to me then I’d have to say the sharpie he signed my tattoo with

I couldn’t be more proud of these nominations however I’m also VERY disappointed in the Grammy’s for not nominating JT in the most important categories which are : Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Record of the Year. I just can’t believe it. Some of the nominees in these categories are a joke. It is what it is I guess. But let’s see the bright side of this. Congrats JT!
Inside Llewyn Davis is released today in Limited cinemas (NYC and LA). The movie will be released nationwide in the USA December 20.

Enjoy the movie and make sure to share your reviews with me over at @JTfansite (twitter) or firstname.lastname@example.org (I might post some of them)
Justin Timberlake is filming a new video with Pharrell! Yes, you read that right! Pharrell Williams!!!!!!
Yesterday an instagram clip leaked online, in which you can see JT grooving to the song during the filming of the music video.
As you might remember, last February JT confirmed to Capital FM that he was working on stuff for Pharrell’s new album. So I’m betting this video is for that project.
Or is it for Timbaland’s next album? Since he is also involved on the song? Well…#youneverknow !
From the little we can hear, the beat sounds sick, and I like the way JT is grooving to it. We need this song in our lives like NOW!
Enjoy the instagram clip below:
In Joel and Ethan Coen’s upcoming film Inside Llewyn Davis, Oscar Isaac plays the title character, a struggling musician in the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early ’60s. He has a hard time getting gigs, has no home of his own, and keeps losing a cat. It’s an unsentimental movie, but also a frequently beautiful one, thanks in no small part to the sensitive, layered work of its star, who performed all his own music.
There’s an Oscar Isaac/likely Oscar nomination pun to be made, but I’m not gonna make it. Instead, I’ll direct you to the conversation I had with the congenial actor, who was calling from London the night after joining Marcus Mumford, Jack White, the film’s music supervisor T Bone Burnett, and others in a concert of the film’s music at Manhattan’s Town Hall.
Did the Coens discuss how they wanted you to approach performing these old folk songs?
It was funny: When I was going to audition, I knew the part was kind of being based on [New York City folk singer] Dave Van Ronk, and the one song they had sent for the audition was his “Hang Me.” I learned that one and then, because I’m obsessive that way, I listened to everything Dave Van Ronk ever recorded, and I read his book The Mayor of MacDougal Street, and I started playing his songs. So when I came in to audition, I’d learned three other Van Ronk arrangements. However, I don’t have the same voice he has — he’s got this growl, and he knows how to howl. My voice is quite different. I knew that I had to be true to that and not try to put something else on it too much.
There’s a scene in the film where your character is watching the competing folksinger Troy Nelson sing in this really mannered style, which is sort of the opposite of how Llewyn Davis sings. And Davis says that Nelson “doesn’t have any higher function.” Did you sit and down and distinguish between your character as being more emotional authentic than the other singers in the film?
I didn’t, man. What’s amazing is that there’s a strange phenomenon with the Coens where they don’t really tell anybody how a scene needs to be. The emotion is just somehow infused into the writing and the people that they cast. The tone emerges; it gets teased out and coaxed out by all of us. It’s a really weird thing. I was expecting that T Bone was going to put me through boot camp, and it was none of that. I showed up to T Bone’s place and he was like, “Hey, have you heard the new Tom Waits album?” and put on the record and left the room for an hour. And then he’d come back and be like “Want to play a song?” and I’d play a song, and then we’d go take a walk and we’d come back, and he’d say, ‘Play it again, you’re really good, maybe change that to a C instead.” It was all very easy. But you look at the movie, and it seems directed within an inch of its life, because the tone is so specific and right on. It seems so precise, and yet that precision — it happens, and I don’t really know how.
You sing in the movie with your co-star, Justin Timberlake. Was that intimidating?
Yeah, it was incredibly intimidating. Justin has near-perfect pitch. It was very, very intimidating.
Did he do anything to put you at ease?
Yeah. He was just himself, and that put me at ease. He’s really easy-going and really funny and just incredibly supportive and excited to be there.

As you guys have seen during this tour, JT has been very interactive with his fans. Always talking to them, encouraging them to “git up” lmao and complimenting them on their birthdays (He even gave a shot of 901 to someone in Vegas for their bday) So its only natural that the fans are always full of love for him.
During the show in Phoenix, a fan gave JT a beer. It was such a cool moment. And after that he starts playing “Drink you away” Perfect:
Note: If anyone has pictures from this show, please share. Credit will be given as always!
Update #2: LOL….. I LOVE YOU JUSTIN. When JT began his opening number for the show (Pusher Love Girl) he thought he was still in Vegas instead of Phoenix. Its so hilarious lmao. Check it out:

Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ December 03, 2013 — Currently on a world tour, Justin Timberlake made his stop in Phoenix last night to a sold out crowd at the US Airways Center. Now in his second month of touring, Timberlake lost track of the city he was in.
“Las Vegas!” he exclaimed when addressing the audience. Timberlake’s last stop before Phoenix was in Vegas, where he played for two consecutive nights.
He immediately realized his mistake by saying, “Wait, where we at? We’re in Phoenix tonight!” before singing his first song of the night, “Pusher Love Girl.”
The three-hour concert consisted of 33 songs and ceaseless dancing by Timberlake. The singer incorporated well-known choreography by fans of his earlier hits such as “Rock Your Body” and “Like I Love You,” along with new routines for material from the two albums he released this year.
“Phoenix, let me see you shake your ass!” he said to a happy-to-oblige crowd. But Timberlake didn’t only entertain with impeccable singing and dancing. The multitalented musician also played piano and guitar.
His show wasn’t the least bit hackneyed for someone that’s been performing professionally for most of his life.
The personable singer interacted with the audience and was clearly focused on making the night memorable. When a fan offered him a cup of beer, he declined by saying, “I already forgot where I am tonight. I don’t need to get any more drunk.”
After some peer pressure from his band and the entire venue chanting, “Chug! Chug! Chug!” he accepted the beer, chugged it on stage, and proceeded to proudly belch into the microphone.
“This crowd is crazy!” he said as he segued into “Drink You Away.”
In a commendable effort to be up-close to as many fans as possible, Timberlake’s catwalk ascended above the audience with the singer making his way to each side of the large venue. Complete with frequent stops providing fans with photo ops, he then performed songs at the back of the venue for a far-reaching experience.
With a thrust of the pelvis, he covered Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel” and then “Human Nature” by Michael Jackson. During “SexyBack,” with a crotch grab and a declaration that “I still run this bitch!”, it was obvious he’s reached the same level of stardom as Presley and Jackson.
The closing number of the night, “Mirrors,” was met with so much force from the crowd singing along that it induced ear-ringing. The visually stunning components of the concert including a laser light show and Timberlake’s musicianship made “The 20/20 Experience” unforgettable.
Before leaving, Timberlake saluted and blew a kiss to the crowd.
“I love you,” he said.
With fans continuing to scream long after he was gone, it was obvious Phoenix loves him, too.
Next time you need advice, look to the stars — Hollywood stars, that is. Over the past year, we’ve been taking note of celebrities’ most inspirational moments, gathering wise words from actors and musicians like Drew Barrymore, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Aniston, and more. Poignant and clever, romantic and funny, these thoughtful celebrity quotes are the perfect words to pin and save for later. Some of these stars’ creative comments may surprise you, so take a look, and pin your favorites to look back on when you need some words of wisdom.
Check out JT’s quote below which I think is very smart. With these words he teaches us that we should fight for what we believe.
Another thing this quote stresses is that we need to experience all types of emotions/feelings, to understand how this complicated thing called life works. And JT’s advice illustrates that point quite well.
Thanks JT for your enlightening words:
I think this photo is proof enough that he is a huge JT fan and will always be.
He was at JT’s concert last night in Vegas rocking a very elegant fedora (JT style) and a kick ass JT t-shirt!
Jordan may be a bit crazy sometimes and intense (Britney stan after all) but I know for a fact that he has always been a fan of JT and has huge respect for him. I also know he has done some sarcastic posts about JT in the past but hey it happens sometimes.
Exhale (his forum, not his opinion) is the one who hates JT, not Jordan.
So, LEAVE JORDAN ALONE!!!
Superstar singer Justin Timberlake is a singing, dancing and sex machine, and he is hands down one of the best live entertainers in music today.
Timberlake brought his “The 20/20 Experience” world tour to MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday night (he’s back tonight, as well), and it was nearly three hours of nonstop singing (his falsetto and overall range are fantastic) and dancing (Timberlake is still a fantastic dancer after all these years post-’N Sync).
And fawning, too. Timberlake is the picture of 007 charisma in a white tuxedo jacket with a silver-and-gray checkered bowtie and black pants, then, after a 10-minute intermission(!), all-black attire, including a black jacket. His very presence onstage is captivating, and his crotch grabs made fans scream. Men want to be him; women and gay men want to be with him.
Timberlake took the stage with the repeated question, “Tennessee Kids, are you ready?” Then “Las Vegas, are you ready?” (Tennessee Kids is the name of the band of Timberlake, who hails from Memphis, Tenn.)
A few surprises and standouts from Friday night (the concert started on time at 9 p.m., and the applause for him throughout the evening was thunderous):
One of Timberlake’s great attributes is his willingness to dip into various musical genres — pop, soul and R&B, hip hop, EDM and country — and he soars in all of them.
The accompanying video for “Tunnel Vision” was especially racy, as it included numerous images of topless women. Topless!
Timberlake’s tributes — to Michael Jackson with “Human Nature,” Elvis Presley with “Heartbreak Hotel” and Bel Biv DeVoe (now you know) with “Poison” — were some of the standout performances in an overall stellar night. His vocals and dance moves of the greats before him were spot on.
While Timberlake is not the first to do this, the elevated stage that rose from the front and then moved over the crowd on the floor to the back — a “flying bridge” — was used to great effect (and an opportunity to snap Timberlake up close with cell phone cameras), but let’s hope neither Timberlake nor his backup singers and dancers has vertigo.
He ended the evening with “Sexy Back,” then an up-tempo “Mirrors.” Timberlake is probably tired of singing “Sexy Back,” but it’s one of his biggest and most-well-known hits. That said, “Mirrors” was a great way for Timberlake to take back the night.
One quibble: Timberlake’s vocals were drowned out by the band and music throughout the evening. The band — and backup singers and dancers — are absolutely terrific, but Timberlake is the star, and his singing should be heard loud and clear.
Friday night’s more-than-30-song setlist included “Pusha Love Girl,” “Rock Your Body,” “Don’t Hold the Wall,” “FutureSex/LoveSound,” “Like I Love You,” “My Love,” “TKO,” “Strawberry Bubblegum,” “Summer Love,” “LoveStoned,” “Until the End of Time” at a white Yamaha piano, “Holy Grail” leading into “Cry Me a River,” then the unexpected 10-minute intermission.
Then “Only When I Walk Away,” “True Blood” (styled as tribal EDM), “Drink You Away” (a country-ish song about alcohol with his jam band), “Tunnel Vision,” “Seniorita” at the keyboard, “Let the Groove Get In” (as a Latin number mixed in with a little “Conga” by Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine), “That Girl,” Elvis’ “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Not a Bad Thing” and Jackson’s “Human Nature.”
And “What Goes Around … Comes Around,” “Cabaret” (with, appropriately, cabaret dancers), “Take Back the Night” (with “the roof is on fire” chant and a little “Jungle Boogie”), “Murder” (with dripping-blood imagery on the big screen), BBD’s “Poison” with the signature dance moves, “Suit and Tie,” “Sexy Back” and “Mirrors.”
DJ Freedom was the opening act.
