Singing and acting sensation Justin Timberlake proves he’s a man of his word by attending the Marine Corps Ball with 23-year-old combat instructor Kelsey De Santis over the weekend. People Magazine reported all the details.
After De Santis uploads a YouTube video a few months ago, begging Justin Timberlake to be her date for the big event, Justin Timberlake was eager to say yes. Justin’s Friends With Benefits costar Mila Kunis also got an invitation from a male sergeant to a similar event.
Justin Timberlake wrote on his personal website how blown away he was to attend the ball. The singer called it the most moving evening he’s ever had.
“I have to tell you, it’s not every day that I meet a 23 year old girl and she’s more worried about if I’m having fun or if I’m comfortable! It hit me all of a sudden that these were the type of people that look after us and our freedom… Humble, concerned for others before themselves… This was the type of person our Marine Corps was building. I was really blown away,” Justin wrote.
From reading his long, well- written and touching blog post, you can tell Justin really cares about the Marine Corps and all the people he met that night, including his date. Justin didn’t have to accept the invitation, and he didn’t have to write a follow-up blog post but he did because he felt like extending the love. Not all celebrities are are humble and sincere as Justin Timberlake. If you didn’t have enough respect for him before, you certainly will now.
“Last night changed my life and I will never forget it,” Justin wrote towards the end of his post, calling Kelsey De Santis his “hero”.
