Brit’s former love, Justin Timberlake, had a similar night on Friday. After performing at Avalon on Friday night (and giving K-Fed a hug on the red carpet — is there a Federlake in the works?), JT was scheduled to perform at Clive Davis’ legendary pre-Grammy bash on Saturday, but had to cancel, citing a 103 degree fever. The folks who were out partying with Justin until five o’clock Saturday morning said he seemed perfectly healthy — albeit drunk — to them. Hm. Fox News said the newly single pop star actually showed up for sound check, but just couldn’t pull it together to perform.

The JT video for “What Goes Around Comes Around,” co-starring Scarlett Johansson, has hit the Internet. I’d comment on it, but after I’d watched for a minute or two, I was in too much pain to continue. I’d feel bad passing judgment without viewing the remaining seven freakin’ minutes. [POTP]

Ladies and gentlemen, Justin Timberlake is dating. Yes, that’s right, he’s dating. There is more than one woman in whom he is interested, and so he is spending time romantically with both of them. You’d think the media would be familiar with this concept, as they all watch Grey’s Anatomy, and Meredith laid the concept out pretty clearly a couple months back, but everyone still seems shocked. It’s not a committed relationship … but it’s not cheating … how do we frame this?
After frollicking around Sundance with Jessica Biel, JT was back in the arms of Scarlett Johansson in Miami. The two were spotted at a Super Bowl afterparty, where, according to witnesses, “they were talking, dancing, holding hands all night – it was very cozy. Then, as they left through the back, Justin was leaning against the wall and Scarlett came up, leaned into him and did a sexy, little dance, grinding into his body.”
I am really, really happy about this, mostly because Jessica Biel is certain to be really, really unhappy about this. I take great pleasure in the little things.

That said, I am a little confused by this news: Justin Timberlake will be hosting the Kid’s Choice Awards. I know what you’re thinking, “Hey, what the hell are the Kid’s Choice Awards?” Fair point.
But I bet they involve children, unless it’s some kind of weird pedophile buffet thing. In which case I bet getting sponsorship/televised would be a bitch. So JT and the kids getting together because he’s a kid-like role model style guy. I now present you some selected lyrics to “Sexy Back.”
You see these shackles
Baby I’m your slave
I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave
Oh crap, I appear to have misspoken. Later on in the song it says:
Go ahead child
Go ahead, be gone with it
And get your sexy on
Go ahead, be gone with it
Now I understand, the kids are meant to be sexy and also objects of sex. Dios Mios man. Was Guarini not available?
Take it to the bridge!
Justin Timberlake’s only been single a matter of weeks, and the classy and talented Jessica Biel has already made herself available to him for whatever it is he may need companionship for — snowboarding, dining, what have you. Biel made a special trip to Sundance, where she is not promoting a film, to spend time with Justin, who appeared in “bad Ricci-porn” Black Snake Moan on Wednesday.
According to Perez Hilton’s source, “Jessica was picked up in her chauffeur-driven Volkswagen Touareg car and instantly went to visit Timberlake when she got into Park City,” which begs the obvious question: why hasn’t Volkswagen’s PR team contacted me for a plug? The two spent time together snowboarding on Thursday and probably also doing any number of things I can’t write about here.
Biel, who recently split from baseballer Derek Jeter, was spotted backstage at a Timberlake concert earlier this month, and was rumored to be the cause of a Cameron/Justin blow-out at the Golden Globes.
Blech! Justin! If you want us to take you seriously as an actor, maybe you should stop hanging out with someone who read the script for Stealth and thought, “Here’s a can’t-miss premise.” Next thing you know, you’ll be starring in bad Ricci-porn!
