Age: 28
Location: Perth, Australia

Favorite hobbies: I live and breathe music so most of my hobbies revolve around it, I’m a concert junkie so whenever I’m at a show whether it be a pop spectacle or at a club watching a DJ is when I’m truly happy

Have you met JT? Yes I had the pleasure of meeting him in 2007 at the FutureSex/LoveShow. When he came to Australia he donated $100,000 to the Australia Zoo and also ran a bunch of charity auctions for backstage passes and I was the winning bidder and took my sister with me who is also a massive JT fan. We got a backstage tour and also got to watch his soundcheck, after the soundcheck he came down from the stage to greet us and take a picture, he was super nice. The next night I attended the show again and he recognized me in the sexyback lounge and gave me that ‘hey I know you’ look

How many JT/Nsync concerts have you attended: I have seen him 7 times, once for the Justifed tour and 6 times for the FutureSex/LoveShow

Your favorite JT song: Too hard to pick a favorite but one that always stands out for me is ‘Losing My Way’, it helped me get through a dark time in my life a few years ago and it always inspires me when I’m feeling down

Your favorite JT album: FutureSex/LoveSounds. Its not only my favorite JT album but also one of my all time favorite, 2nd only to Xtina’s ‘Stripped’

Your favorite JT movie: its a tie between Alpha Dog and Friends With Benefits

Describe JT in 3 words: President of Pop

Your favorite JT feature: His eyes

Dream collaboration: Christina Aguilera. They are my King and Queen and there is nothing I want more than for them to do a song together, to be honest I’ll probably spontaneously combust if it happens.

A photo of your most personal/valuable / rare JT item: My most valuable item would probably be my photo with him, its blown up and framed and hanging on my bedroom wall and its one of the first things I look at every morning when I get out of bed. Its a constant reminder that dreams really do come true and if you are passionate and dedicated towards something anything is possible. Also during the whole backstage experience they let us go into his room while he wasn’t there and take pictures and look around and thats something most people don’t really ever get the chance to do so I have attached some of those pictures too and a few pictures from the sound check.

Help Cory get a Priceless Surprise from JT

Check out this emotional video of Lindsay and her husband Cory.

Cory suffers from a broken pelvis and a life threatening traumatic brain injury.

He is a huge JT fan and is hoping JT can visit him and give him a priceless surprise.

This is a very touching story and I think he really deserves to have his dream of meeting JT come to life.

So lets tweet/share this story to @jtimberlake and @Mastercard. Let’s keep Cory smiling!

Justin performs *NSYNC’s ‘Gone’ at Florida show!

Justin treated fans at last night’s (4th March) show at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to a rare performance of *NSYNC’s huge hit ‘Gone’

For those not lucky enough to be there last night (myself included over here in London), the wonderful Melissa Bates was, and recorded it for us all to enjoy :)

Justin states that the reason he is playing the song is because the BB&T Center (probably not called that back then!) was the last place *NSYNC ever gave an arena performance, forgetting the VMA appearance last year, of course.

He also gave a special mention to former bandmate Chris Kirkpatrick who was in the audience, and been on tour with Justin for a little while recently too…. I mean, why not? If you are friends with JT and can afford the time and money (not that he is paying?!) to go on tour with him, I definitely would!

Videos below, thanks Mel :)

Justin to produce The Idol Maker

Craig Brewer is in talks to direct MGM’s reboot of “The Idolmaker” with Justin Timberlake, Hawk Koch and Gene Kirkwood producing.

The original film, released in 1980, starred Ray Sharkey as a mercenary music promoter who takes on two boys with the intent of turning them into teen idols. The story was based on the life of the life of rock promoter and manager Bob Marcucci, who discovered and promoted Frankie Avalon and Fabian.

Marucci served as a technical advisor and Taylor Hackford directed “The Idolmaker,” which was the feature film debut for Peter Gallagher, Joe Pantoliano, and Paul Land.

“The Idolmaker” was one of the MGM library projects that were put into development in 2011 after the storied studio went through a pre-packaged bankruptcy in late 2010. It also began working at that point on reboots of “RoboCop,” which was released through Sony last month, and “Poltergeist,” due to be released next eyar through Fox.

JT to headline UK’s V Festival this August

Last night saw the announcement of the lineup for V Festival, a music festival that takes place in 2 locations in the UK each summer since 1996.

Guess who is headlining?! Yep – the man himself, Mr Justin Timberlake. He tops the bill alongside The Killers, which also features many different types/genres of artists including acts Ed Sheeran, UK dance duo Chase and Status, UK alternative band Elbow (one of my favourite bands!), and even dating back to classic 70′s/80′s acts such as The Human League, Chic with Nile Rodgers and Blondie.

The festival will take place on the 16th and 17th of August, with Justin headlining the Hylands Park (Essex) venue on the 16th and the Weston Park (Staffordshire) venue on the 17th.

Full line up so far:

lineup-2014


I for one can’t wait, and plan to be at Hylands Park for the duration of the weekend so luckily get to see him once again this year! I think this is Justin’s first appearance at a ‘proper’ festival here in the UK, with camping etc. (Wireless Festival doesn’t have camping or overnight stays!), so I’m sure it will be a great experience for him too!

For anyone wanting to buy tickets, you can get them here as of Friday 9am GMT.

Pharrell feat. Justin Timberlake – Brand New – EARLY STREAM

Girl


I know a lot of JT fans, especially me, have been waiting for this amazing collaboration to reunite for a duet for quite a while…. and its finally here.

As we all knew earlier last week, Justin features on Pharrell Williams’ new album ‘G I R L’ on a track called ‘Brand New’. As two of the biggest and best artists in the business at the moment (for a very long time!), and with their amazing history of producing music together, this was an exciting prospect that thankfully we now get to hear. I am so happy this has happened!

Pharrell has allowed his album to be streamed on iTunes a week early, which is exactly what JT done on both 20/20 albums. I am halfway through listening to it but wanted to get this up as soon as I could!

Listen to ‘Brand New’ here:

I personally love it, a classic harmonic bridge from the Kings of beautiful sounds. An infectious beat and a underlying message of love, what else did you expect but greatness? I’m imagining listening to this in the summer and blasting it really loud. I can’t wait.

What do you guys think? Let us know!

Enjoy!
