In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Bruno Mars kills it on SNL and Justin Timberlake didn’t invite N*Sync members Joey Fatone or Lance Bass to this wedding.
HIT: Bruno Mars on SNL
Unless you’re Justin Timberlake, having a musical guest also double as a host is a very risky move. Luckily, the writers were on their game this weekend as Bruno Mars capitalized on his singing skills in the Pandora sketch. Unfortunately, that sketch isn’t available online because of multiple copyrights attached the songs he sang (including Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend). If you do find it, treasure that moment forever. It’s a pretty great.
MISS: Justin Timberlake reportedly banned one half of N*Sync from his wedding
Speaking of Justin Timberlake, Celebs like Jimmy Fallon and Andy Samburg were just two out of 100 wedding guests at his wedding in Italy. You know who wasn’t there? Lance Bass and Joey Fantone. According to Us Weekly fodder, “Justin hates Lance now.” Well, you know what Timberlake? Boo you for not wanting the greatest boy band in the world in reunite. BOO YOU (as in displeasure, not in a ghoulish scream)!
HIT: Armie Hammer is a prince in real life
Armie Hammer can now join the “Celebrities can be heroes, too” club after helping a car crash victim in L.A. According to model Leeann Tweeden (who can join the club, too because she also helped), Hammer helped an old lady out of her smashed-up car during rush hour. What rare breed Hammer is: his charming face matches his thoughtful personality.

No, for real. Jersey Shore Shark Attack follows over-gelled guidos and guidettes on the Jersey Shore as they hunt for a giant man-eating shark with machine guns.
Here’s the background: in 1916 there really were a series of brutal shark attacks along the coast of New Jersey. Since then, the shark attacks have become part of American pop culture, though no one has quite done as much to tarnish the legend like this Jersey Shore Shark Attack movie. Nookie and his friends are just looking for a fun holiday weekend on the Shore but when a famous singer is eaten alive the shark hunt begins. Now the Preppies must work together while saving the inhabitants of the Shore. Gag.
The movie is Jersey Shore meets a B-list version of Jaws and even has cameos from Vinny Guadagnino, the Soprano’s Tony Sirico and N Sync’s Joey Fatone. I’m guessing it’s supposed to be a parody (or at least I hope) so the poor special effects and overdone stereotypes might make for campy, unintended comedy.
