Details of comedy music group The Lonely Island’s next album The Wack Album have finally surfaced and it’s starting to look like a who’s who of music. But first up is the music video for their next big hit, “Spring Break Anthem.”
Disguised within a new episode of Between Two Ferns, the boys of The Lonely Island (Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg) get a little help from the show’s host, Zach Galifianakis, and his guest, James Franco, with a surprise appearance from actor Ed Norton.
While I would’ve been absolutely content with Between Two Ferns as Galifianakis sends out zingers like, “I don’t consider what you did at the Oscars hosting the Oscars,” this is much better. The guys all end up marrying each other because that’s the logical thing to do right in the middle of spring break (got to get all the crazy out of your system before settling down, right?).
On the music side, super heavy weights Justin Timberlake, Solange, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and T-Pain are set to appear on the upcoming The Wack Album. “YOLO” featuring Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar (which previously premiered on Saturday Night Live) will also be included in their new effort. The Wack Album is set to drop June 11.
Justin Timberlake is going on tour! The Mirror singer will kick off his 20/20 Experience World Tour (his first in six years) on October 31st in Montréal and will run through 2014. The tour will follow the heels of the international release of Timberlake’s follow up album on September 30th and which will feature 10 new songs. His tour will also bring him to Edmonton, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Pheonix, Atlanta, and more.

Looks like the cat community got jealous of all those goat videos getting all the attention recently because they are now making their own music.
In this video, Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” gets remixed and teams up with a few cats who offer up some great vocals in place of Jay-Z’s verses in the hit song. That video is called “Cat and Tie” and I only hope more of these will be made.
Today, is April 30.
Why is this important? Because tomorrow is May. What is so special about May especially when the weather refuses to be a friend to us? It’s the ramen noodle-haired Justin Timberlake’s internet staple.
Every May, Justin Timberlake circa N’Sync appears all over the interwebs. It’s all because he sang the lyrics “It’s going to be me,” but it sounded like “It’s gonna be May.” It’s one of those internet things that you don’t know how, when, or why it started, but since you can remember it’s been a thing, and it’s been hysterical.
So guys. Brace yourself for tomorrow because:

Figuring out the top 10 hottest guys of the 90s was a lot harder than I thought. I mean, I remember all the posters I had in my room and who was on them, but I needed some help from my friends to rank them. So here it is, the product of my hard research: the top 10 heartthrobs from the 1990s.
10. Chris Klein
I’m pretty sure this was one of the only reasons girls wanted to watch American Pie movies, after all, those movies were made for guys. Every girl I knew watched them, and we all had a poster of Chris in our rooms (Thank you J14 magazine). If you saw the latest installment, American Pie:Reunion, he might have a slightly different hairline, but the 34-year-old seems to have aged well. I mean, how could that jaw-line not age well?
9. Nick Carter
Being one of the biggest boy bands in the 90s, it’s only natural the Backstreet Boys’ resident heartthrob made this list. Nick Carter was the blonde babe that all the girls liked. Much like the Bieber’s haircut, Carter’s trademark ‘do was donned by every guy. Still not sure why we loved his style, but that’s the 90s for you. He is now 33.
8. Freddie Prinze Jr.
This hunk got his start in I Knew What You Did Last Summer but we all took notice when he starred in She’s All That and Summer Catch. It’s only fitting he marry an equally gorgeous 90s bombshell Sarah Michelle Gellar, making them the best 90s couple around. He’s still hot at 37.
Okay, I personally would have him as my number 1, but according to my highly “scientific” survey, he belongs in the number seven spot. Does anyone remember the song, “Nice and Slow”? I basically fell in love with him watching that video. Usher is pure sex, ladies.
6. JTT aka Jonathan Taylor Thomas
When it comes to hip hop covers, often than not you’re left thinking “why would they even attempt covering THAT song!?” But then there are those that cause you to begin dancing around your room with excitement.
But what’s most surprising is when those covers are done by non-hip hop artists. I don’t know if it’s the initial shock of “oh my god, this actually sounds good,” or the weird juxtaposition of when the song is done in another genre entirely. The bottom line, though, is that they’re good and all we want to do is listen to them.
Here are 10 of the best hip hop covers from non-hip hop artists.
Ed Sheeran and Passenger — “No Diggity / Thrift Shop”
A pretty recent cover comes from music’s most soulful ginger, Ed Sheeran, who teamed up with Passenger’s Mike Rosenberg during a recent visit to Australian radio to give us an amazing mash up of Blackstreet’s 90′s hit “No Diggity” and Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop.”
Ed Sheeran — “Empire State of Mind”
Ed Sheeran makes another appearance on this list with his cover of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State” of Mind for BBC Radio 1. Ed can do no wrong, so it’s no surprise that this cover (like everything he does) is nothing short of perfection.
Everyone’s favourite good looking leading man Ryan Gosling has said he is looking to take a break from acting.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Gosling said he has lost perspective since he was doing too much work.
“I think it’s good for me to take a break and reassess why I’m doing it and how I’m doing it,” he said. “And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.”
Gosling already has two films set for release this spring: The Place Beyond the Pines and Only God Forgives. He is also set to make his directorial debut with To Catch A Monster which is slated for release next year.
A little break is always a good thing, but in what world would audiences ever be sick of this:
Giggling over tea towels with his face on them
or an old photo of him and Mouseketeer co-star Justin Timberlake
Or when he was shirtless in Crazy Stupid Love
With his musical comeback in full swing, Justin Timberlake released the music video for “Mirrors,” the second single off of his The 20/20 Experience album, on Tuesday.
Timberlake appropriately dedicates the video to his grandparents William and Sadie as the video depicts their 63-year-old relationship with each other. The video makes us a little teary eyed as we watch their relationship evolve from their first meeting in the fifties to the present day, where video Sadie is recounting their years together without William. Timberlake’s real grandfather passed away last year.
How fitting is this tale of love considering Timberlake wants his audience to fall in love, just as he did with now-wife Jessica Biel, with his new record.
WATCH “MIRRORS” BY JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE BELOW”
Are you sick of Justin Timberlake yet?
“NO,” said everyone on the planet.
Ending his crazy, packed week with featured appearances on SNL and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Timberlake treated his fans with the fourth round of History of Rap with his partner in crime Fallon.
Covering the likes of Biggie, Missy Elliot, Jay-Z and Eminem, you can be sure that EPIC-ness ensued.
So instead of seeing me blab on about how amazing this is, just watch.
If you haven’t heard Justin Timberlake’s name at least once or twice this week, you’re definitely living under a rock. He is dropping his new album, The 20/20 Experience on March 19th (although there was a free stream of it on iTunes! Read our review HERE).
He practically lived in NBC’s famous 30 Rockefeller building. Right after his fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live, he celebrated his comeback by spending a week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Yes, we can say that it’s been a huge two weeks for him.
But in case you have been living under a rock, we’ve compiled videos of what he’s done this week. Can we just have him on Jimmy Fallon all the time, please?
SNL SKIT: Opening Monolouge
If you’re not overwhelmed by the amount of talent that is on the stage, you’re wrong.
SNL: It’s A Date
YES. Andy Samberg returns to SNL to reprise his and Timberlake’s famous “Dick in a Box” duo. It’s a bit lengthy, but I promise you that it’s worth it.
If Justin really did the advertising for a restaurant called Veganville, I’d be dashing through the door to try to get there first. Plus the Harlem Shake in the end was really unexpected. Who cares if the phase is over? Justin revived it for one last time.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, JT lights up the SNL stage, Britney Spears shows us her buns, and could this be the end of Miley and Liam?
HIT: JT rocks the SNL stage
Justin Timberlake hosted SNL for the fifth time last week. Decked out in his suit and tie, JT’s performance racked up some major views. His appearance earned SNL the most ratings they’ve ever had in the last 14 months. With a little dancing, singing and a sh*t load of lol moments, we were all glued to the screen. Here are just some highlights: JT reunites with funny man Andy Samberg for a duet, JT does the vegan shake and he props on a wig and impersonates Sir Elton John. If you missed Justin’s hilarious performance, ENTV has got you covered. Prepare to laugh!
MISS: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split?
Now we can’t confirm nor deny but these love birds could by flying the coup real soon. Miley’s partying ways and Liam’s wandering eyes are the main culprits for this alleged fallout. Speculations started when Liam was spotted leaving a party with vixen January Jones and when Miley was seen without her engagement ring. Well the wedding date hasn’t been cancelled just yet, we’ll keep our fingers crossed. Come on guys where is the love?

Justin Timberlake seems to be living at NBC’s infamous 30 Rockefeller building as he follows up his appearance on Saturday Night Live with “Justin Timberlake Week” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
We already know that Justin and Jimmy make a great team, having performed some hilarious sketches on SNL in the past. But seriously, it’s like the writers at SNL and Late Night save all the good sketches just for him, which is actually great because Timberlake can carry sketches all by himself. It must’ve been that Mickey Mouse Club training.
Thank the lord because here’s another winning skit from Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon. Just watch as they do a fantastic barbershop quartet (well, quintet now) cover of “SexyBack” with the Ragtime Gals. Let’s all just find downloads of this, shall we?
Although Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience isn’t available for purchase just yet, it was recently put up on iTunes on a stream…for free. The stream will stay up for a week.
It looks like Timberlake really wants to get us all really excited for the release of his first album in seven years.
After listening to the stream, I came to the conclusion that the album is everything I could have wanted and more. It’s a healthy balance of everything we love about JT (i.e. falsetto and sensual beats) and new styles we have not heard yet from Timberlake, like jazz (quick! Jazz hands!).
Timberlake has always been dapper, more so now as all his performances have been done in the obligatory suit and tie attire. This album is his white tie, top hat, and tails as it’s pop meets crooner, with a hint of R&B.
It really makes you respect Justin Timberlake and the amount of worth that went into creating his comeback. It’s very clear this album took a lot of time and planning as every track is perfect and lends itself perfectly to the next. Being able to hearing the album on stream gives you the full effect as opposed to hitting random on your illegal download.
I enjoyed each and every track as they’re all similar but different from the one before it.
“The 20/20 Experience” will be released March 19, and is available for pre-order.
Read our review of every track below:
Little Pusher Love Girl
Pusher love is the sexy song of this album with it’s smooth and sensual vibe. Just when you think you can’t love this song enough, Timberlake starts to rap — something I didn’t realize he could do. This song is just fun to listen to as it’s a mix of different sounds that just happens to work together.
Suit & Tie
We all know and love “Suit & Tie” already. It’s already a big chart topper and was the perfect single to release from this album. In a way “Suit & Tie” encompasses the whole feel of the album as it represents the album’s clean cut yet sexy sound.
Don’t Hold the Walls
During another one of his onstage rants, the ever so eloquent Kanye West took a little dig at Justin Timberlake as he said, “I got love for Hov (Jay Z) but I ain’t f***ing with that ‘Suit & Tie’.”
Well Kanye, Suit & Tie “ain’t f**ing” with you either. Justin Timberlake made that clear on Saturday Night Live this past Saturday when he made a not-so-subtle song change to Suit & Tie performance.
Too much? I think not. Timberlake didn’t “bash” the notoriously rude rapper as much as he simply stated a fact. Kanye West is a very dramatic person overall (seriously, Ryan Seacrest. Convince Kanye to wear a mic while on any one of Kim Kardashian’s reality shows). You can’t diss someone who didn’t really do anything to you and not expect some sort of reaction. Personally, I found Timberlake’s reaction hilarious and not all that offensive.
Poor Kanye. Timberlake is stealing his awards and his best friend/favourite collaborator. Do these moments of bro-hood between Jay Z and Justin Timberlake make you sad, Kanye?

Saturday Night Live hasn’t really had its fair share of quality TV moments this season. While they’ve managed to rope in some fabulous guests this year (Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lawrence, Adam Levin), the skits have erred a little on the boring side. Thankfully, Justin Timberlake must promote his return to music (yay!) and that means a return to NBC’s beloved comedy show.
While we may not appreciate his acting the way he would like us to, Timberlake is actually a great comedy actor. He has a great sense of timing, he’s always down for a good laugh, and most importantly, (potential hosts take note) he’s a team player.
For a refresher, here’s are just some of Timberlake’s best moments on SNL:
1. Dick in a Box
2. Singles Ladies
3. Liquorville Dance Battle Read more…
Rihanna just debuted her River Island Collection during London Fashion Week which officially gives her an invitation to the celebrity fashion designers club.
Celebrities can be great people to look up to when looking for style inspiration, but some celebs are a little bit easier to channel sartorially than others as you can purchase a little bit of them through their own fashion lines. However not every celebrity-turned-designer are as good as others.
Let us guide you through the messy world of celebrity fashion lines to see which celebrity fashion lines you should save your change for. We break down who’s worthy of becoming a fashion brand, who’s merely a hit, and who should keep their day job in one handy dandy list.
1) Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: The Row, Elizabeth & James, Olsenboye, StyleMint, and Mary-Kate and Ashley for Wal-Mart.
Where to begin with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen? The famous duo got their start in the entertainment industry at the ripe ol’ age of six month, when the fraternal twins took turns playing baby sister Michelle Tanner on Full House. That was only the beginning and they went on to build an empire worth over one billion dollars. Apart from the iconic role of Michelle Tanner and their many movies and other T.V. shows, the twins managed to create a name for themselves within the fashion industry.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen top our list because not only have they had a head start in the business than most celebrities, their many fashion lines have managed to boost their fledgling adult acting careers and have given them a new sense of purpose and career path. Their many successful fashion lines have been the envy of other celebrities since they are quintessentially the blueprint for other celebrity fashion lines. The sisters have all markets covered from luxury brand The Row, to mid-market brand Elizabeth & James (the Elizabeth is for their sister who has now become a in-demand actress herself), and Olseneboye which is an exclusive partnership with mass-market department store JC Penney.
So not only are their fashions available to everyone which score major points, but when other celebrities where your clothes then you know you’ve made it as a fashion designer.
Verdict: Major Fashion Brand- for their mass market and high fashion appeal and high-end and low-end price ranges.
2) Victoria Beckham: Victoria Beckham Collection, dvb, and Victoria by Victoria Beckham.
While as Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham wasn’t the usual centre of the attention as she had to compete with the more in-your-face members of the iconic girl group, the Spice Girls. But now that she’s been on her own, Victoria probably commands the most attention from the public than any of the other members of the Spice Girls. While she did attempt and ultimately floundered at a solo pop career, Victoria has maintained her A-list status as a major fashion icon– all thanks to her impeccable fashion sense, her superstar athlete of a husband David Beckham, and her trademark pout.
What makes Victoria Beckham’s fashion lines so successful is that she’s the best brand ambassador for her clothing. Wonder what she’s wearing in all those various paparazzi shots of her? Well she’s most likely wearing her own clothes! Other stars have taken notice as well, having been spotted and photographed wearing clothes from Victoria’s collections. (Other celebrities wearing your designs a major fashion coup!) The problem with celebrity fashion lines are that the celebrities hardly ever wear their own designs! While celebrity designers might don their own designs once in a while, they are never as consistent as Victoria Beckham.
Verdict: High Fashion Brand- for its high fashion appeal but unfortunately her clothes have high-end to mid-market price tags on them. So you better save up!
3) Rachel Zoe: The Rachel Zoe Collection and Luxe Rachel Zoe. Read more…
Justin Timberlake’s third solo album, ”The 20/20 Experience,” will be released March 19th. No one is more excited than ANDPOP. If you think you are, I dare you to challenge us.
As you already know, here at ANDPOP, we all LOVE Justin Timberlake. His dancing, singing, his everything is just perfection. His music video’s are always so suave and fun to watch. After the Grammy’s, we were also proved that no one can work a crowd quite like JT. We have his track listing, and the album is already available through pre-order on itunes. Our bodies are not ready.
Here are our ten reasons why we cannot wait for “The 20/20 Experience.”
1) His hair no longer looks like ramen noodles
2) More music videos of him singing into a mic passionately
3) We already love Suit & Tie
4) We already love Mirrors
5) His life performance at the grammy’s have us really excited for the release of “Pusher Love Girl ” Read more…
Justin Timberlake has put comeback to music on the fast track as the singer has just released the official video for “Suit and Tie” featuring none-other than Jay-Z.
Just like his Grammys performance on Sunday night, the whole video is shot in black and white with a few old school elements thrown in there. It’s a little bit unbelievable on just how quickly Timberlake has been releasing new material considering he announced his comeback just over a month ago.
Congratulations, Jessica Biel, on scoring the most talented guy round.
After watching Justin Timberlake class up the Grammys last night with his suited-up moves and one-listen-will-make-you-pregnant voice, I’d say JT is once again the hottest Justin the world. As we eagerly await his comeback album, let’s have our own 20/20 Experience into his old school days with these vintage pics and clips of lil Justin.
He’s a country kid
Justin Randall Timberlake was born in Memphis, Tennessee on January 31, 1981. His middle name comes from papa Timberlake, a church choir director who got Justin hooked on country tunes growing up. It didn’t take long for Justin to start belting Memphis saloon songs either…
His cute TV debut!
Before “Suit & Tie,” JT was all about cowboy duds and country twang. He made his TV debut at 11 on Star Search - a 90s American Idol for kids — in 1992. Even with a hat that looks like it could swallow him whole, he wowed the crowd with his take on the country tune “Love’s Got A Hold On You.”
He grew up with tons of celebs Read more…
“Mirrors” – Justin Timberlake
JT didn’t even give us enough time to finish swooning over “Shirt and Tie,” and he’s already come back with a new single. While “Shirt and Tie” was a more laid back R&B track, “Mirrors” draws on classic “Cry Me a River” style Justin. And get this, ladies, it’s eight minutes long. Yes, that means you get to listen to the sweet sounds of JT’s voice non-stop for eight whole minutes. Check out Justin Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience dropping March 19.
“Stay” – Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko (One-take version)
Okay, all I could say after watching this video was wow. Just wow. Rihanna took things to a whole new level with her new video for “Stay.” Shot in one single take, RiRi sits in a bathtub with no makeup, no extra editing, and no frills. It’s just her sitting there raw, singing the emotional ballad with some extremely convincing sad-face shots. The video is so astoundingly simple it’s just perfect. There’s another
