And no, I don’t know whether he’s sorry the video was MADE or if he’s just sorry that the news of said video got out to the commoners. I’ll have to get back to you guys on that one. Word on the street is that Justin‘s lamenting the existence of the “tasteless” video. This is what he has to say:
“I had no knowledge of its existence, [and] had absolutely ZERO contribution to it. I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video. Again, it was something that I was not made aware of. But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable.”
Oh, OK. As long as he’s holding himself accountable. I mean, yeah, I know that he (I guess, anyway) had nothing to do with the making of this film, or the exploitation of the homeless people involved (they were allegedly paid forty bucks a pop for their cameos, which is a pittance when taking how much the people in Justin’s circles probably earn), but doubtless it was something he found to be funny, and not at all sad. Because really, why should you be sad when it’s not you or yours?
Boo on this shit.

I’m not going to lie, this story really hurts. Because out of the five members of NSYNC, the best boy band of all time, only one showed up at Justin Timberlake‘s wedding. And that was Justin Timberlake himself. And that’s sad.
I always thought that whenever Justin finally married Jessica Biel, he would have four best men: JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick. I thought that they were brothers for life. But it turns out that only two guys were even invited to the wedding, and they didn’t show up. How wack is that?
From US Weekly:
Only two of Justin Timberlake’s four former *NSYNC bandmates –JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick — scored invites to his Oct. 19 wedding to Jessica Biel, sources told Us Weekly. Lance Bass and Joey Fatone didn’t make the cut.
“Justin thought a reunion would overshadow the wedding,” said one pal. “And Justin hates Lance now.”
I also heard that while Justin doesn’t “hate” Joey, he’s super embarrassed that he did that whole Dancing with the Stars thing, and apparently it was kind of a dealbreaker for him. Oh, and Justin and Jess only invited “close friends and family.” Sorry, guys. You just didn’t make the cut.
Oh, and here’s one last little tidbit of information: Justin didn’t allow anyone to play any NSYNC songs at the wedding. What a bitchy little diva. If it wasn’t for NSYNC, Justin never would have met Jessica Biel. He’d still be a guy with ridiculous hair just chillin’ down in Memphis, please.

That’s what Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel did at their wedding over the weekend they hung out in Italy, they had their wedding that cost 6.5 million dollars, and they went “ha ha, homeless people!”
Here’s a clip from a video that one of Justin’s close friends, Justin Huchel (a real estate agent, no less), put together to show at the wedding:
The actual video is about eight and a half minutes long, and, as you can see, features a variety of homeless people explaining why they just couldn’t make it out to Italy. Charming, right? “Let us sip on our fancy wines and liquors and dine on our thousand dollar meals whilst the less fortunate entertain us!” What assholes.
No, really, this dude, Justin Timberlake’s friend, is a real asshole. Gawker originally posted the clip, and here’s how they described the rest of the video:
“Greetings from Your Hollywood Friends Who Just Couldn’t Make It,” reads the opening title card, “Featuring Sid, Chuck, Robert, and More!” Sid, Chuck, Robert, and others appear to be penniless and living on the street. Some of them are obviously intoxicated, mentally ill, or both, and at least one of them is entirely incapable of speaking.
“Justin and Jessica, I haven’t seen you for a long time,” one toothless man tells the camera. “I hope the wedding goes fine for you. My gift is in the mail.”
A male off-camera voice, apparently Huchel’s, asks the man when he last saw Timberlake and Biel, adding, “Did you and Jessica mess around?”
At one point, after commentary from an apparently transexual man, Timberlake’s “SexyBack” is played in the background.
Another glassy-eyed apparently homeless man woozily tells the camera, in a lengthy and rambling monologue, “Jeez I miss you so much. I wish I could be there.” (“There” being the $1,000-plus a night Italian resort hanging out with guests like Jimmy Fallon and Andy Samberg. “Here” being behind what looks like a McDonald’s.) Others mumble unintelligibly in response to questions about when they last hung out with Timberlake and Biel. When one shirtless man says he saw them at the L.A. Coliseum, the male voice asks, “were you performing with them?”
That really drives it home doesn’t it? I’m somehow always surprised by the ability some humans have to be such utter pricks.

This is really lovely, isn’t it? For all the shit I talk about Jessica Biel, I’ve never denied that she’s a truly beautiful woman, and she looks just stunning in this picture. But I really, really need to see her dress. It’s pink, and I accept that, but I need to see it all. I’ve got my eye out, friends.
Oh, and Justin Timberlake looks like Justin Timberlake. That’s cool, I guess.
But seriously, about that dress. Can the world get on that, please?

Yup, they didn’t even bother to wait ’til this weekend, which is when everyone thought it was going to happen, even though we, at Evil Beet, already figured it was going down earlier this morning. Here’s the couple’s official statement, via People magazine:
“It’s great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends.”
Can’t wait to see these pictures, guys. Oh, and congratulations! All snark aside, what a beautiful, beautiful couple these two make.

From Blind Gossip:
Which troubled pop star flew to Las Vegas on the pretense of business, but really hit Sin City with the hopes of reuniting with her first true love? The only hitch is that the famous exes are both engaged – to other people!
So we all know how much Britney just loves her some Las Vegas. And we also know that Justin recently spent his faux-bachelor party there, under the watchful eye of Jessica Biel. Also, as far as “troubled” pop stars go, can anyone think of anyone more troubled than Britney? Rihanna comes to mind, of course, but Rihanna’s not engaged to anyone—neither is Chris Brown. But Britney? Well. She is. And so’s Justin.
Do I think there’s a chance in hell of this happening? No f-cking way. But hey. It makes for a good story, huh?
Let’s keep in mind that this was the last thing Justin’s ever said about Britney:
“We were two birds of the same feather—small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person. I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”
And this was the last thing Britney ever said about Justin:
“I’m still hurting but I am trying to see it as an experience. The worst thing is everyone wants to talk to me about it. Everywhere I go people are asking how I am. I am the type of person who can’t go from a serious relationship and then just start dating someone else straight away. It’s a strange feeling getting used to being single again but I suppose I’ll have to cope. I’m just starting to get the knack of it because ever since I was 15 I’ve been in a serious relationship.”
So. Wonder if Britney is still hurting after all these years—hurting enough to want to put the moves on Justin a decade later?
