Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Want #Hashtags To Go Away

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon are good friends and have been for years – Jimmy even spoke did improv(?) at Justin’s wedding! – and they’re always doing stupid shit together. Of course, by stupid shit I mean funny shit. Last night hashtag skit on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon was no exception. I won’t even describe – you can just watch!

If Justin ever decides to give up his music and his ~serious acting~ careers, I really think he’d be a great comedic star. He’s got really good timing, isn’t afraid to be silly and is a total team player.

Also, the hashtag thing IS out of control. Seriously – one or two keywords about a trending topic is acceptable, but the overabundance of hashtags is a hot mess. What do you think – funny or not so much?

What Do We Think of Justin Timberlake’s ‘TKO’?

Justin Timberlake is set to release the second part of his 20/20 Experience album at the end of this month, but he’s given us another teaser of what we can expect with his new track ‘TKO’. It’s another whopper at over seven minutes long, but I guess that’s what ~artistry~ is all about… right? It’s been produced by Timbaland, of course, so it’s all very much the JT we’re used to.

What do you think? Were you a fan of The 20/20 Experience and will you get The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2?

Jay-Z Is Totally Down-to-Earth, Says Justin Timberlake

If Justin Timberlake could pucker up any harder to kiss Jay-Z‘s ass, he’d give himself a hernia. Sure, they collaborated on Magna Carta Holy Grail and they’re “friends”, but take it down a few notches, bro. Now Justin is insisting that Jay-Z is nothing like his on stage persona of some hardened thug or something (which… that’s definitely not his persona anymore) and he’s actually just a cool, normal guy and is actually acting when he’s performing.

From T Magazine:

“I try to talk to people about how much acting goes into music, how much of a character goes into what you put on stage.

“You ever sit down with Jay? He’s not the guy he is on stage. I’m not the guy I am on stage. I am a performer. It’s an elevated idea.”

Thanks, Captain Obvious. I mean… I dunno, am I missing something? Jay-Z is a great rapper and he clearly lives the lifestyle of flashing his money about and being a “boss” when not performing. So what? As for Justin, I don’t see a “persona” there, I see a singer… singing songs. It’s not like Lady GaGa or someone who puts on elaborate stage production and dresses up in wigs and costumes and shit, so I don’t know that this applies.

That being said, I like both JT and Jay-Z, I just kinda don’t get his point.
