“We met and got talking. Afterwards I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out. My friend called Jessica and Jessica said yes, and so I called her. I did it the old fashioned way — by telephone. That’s something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather — that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn’t have to die with the birth of the internet. The way I see it, if you’re asking a girl out on a date, it’s only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes. But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed. … She’s a really, really, really special person. Plus, she’s really, really, hot!”
Wait. Is he kidding with that “I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes” thing? Because first, Justin Timberlake is hot. And he’s mildly charming. And I don’t think he’d have to work all that hard to get any woman to agree to date him. Also, we all know Jessica Biel‘s obsessive track record. Don’t you guys remember how she publicly said that she was the one who stalked Justin in the early beginnings of their relationship? Is this whole thing a joke? Are we being punked?
What the hell’s going on here?
