“I’ve got a wish list of people. Number one on my wishlist is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of Rocket Man and he was superb.”

Elton John would really like Justin Timberlake to play Elton John in an upcoming movie about Elton John, to be produced by David Furnish and Elton John.

The Guardian reports that a movie based on the life of Elton John is all but inevitable—Why? Why does this need to be a movie, even?—but Elton promises it will be campy and surreal, “not just a factual look at my life, more in the manner of a Moulin Rouge.”

Oh. That sounds kind of cool, actually. Hey! If you wanted the movie to be extra surreal, you could cast William Shatner as the lead instead. You know, for obvious reasons.

Alternatively, you should go back to courting James McAvoy for the role, since that kid actually has the chops. No offense, Justin.

Justin Timberlake Manufactures New Music Groups, Continues to Disappoint Us

The new hip-hop group is called FreeSol, this is their latest single, and it’s been created by Timbaland and, of course, Justin Timberlake.

It’s also kind of mediocre. And honestly, it’s a pure Timbaland/Timbalake hybrid, because the music is straight-up Justin and the lyrical rhymes are straight-up Timbaland. So you’re probably wondering why the two didn’t just get together and hop up in the studio themselves and record the music. And I don’t have an answer for that. I tried a long time ago to fathom the workings of Justin Timberlake’s mind, guys, and it was like looking into the eye of a tornado. Or the brown eye of Kim Kardashian. Both are equally terrifying in their own right, and both are sort of lazy in their paths, yet destructive as hell. Which is where I’m starting to think Justin Timberlake is headed. (To “lazy,” not to “Kim Kardashian’s brown eye” that is.)
