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:

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…
Kelly, Michelle and Beyonce, I don’t think you can handle this? The fierce trio always sported matching outfits, and I secretly wanted to be the fourth member, even if that meant me being backup to Queen B (I totally wouldn’t care). The girls recently released a new song, with many fans rejoicing. Beyonce is set as a performer at the SuperBowl half-time show, causing lots of speculation whether the three of them will perform together then. Michelle Williams gave the disappointing news on a radio interview saying, “It is rumored.” Throwback to some of their best jams: “Say My Name,” “Bootylicious,” and “Survivor.”[beyhive1992]
Don’t tell me you never owned any of the the guy’s famous puppet dolls, replicated from their second studio album, “No Strings Attached.” If anyone else is waiting for some type of reunion to happen, let me know because I’ll actually do anything I can to make it happen. N*SYNC was actually my very first concert and Justin was my first crush (not Bieber). With Justin Timberlake now having his own musical comeback, the odds are slim that a reunion will happen anytime soon. Sigh… Throwback to some of their best jams: “Bye Bye Bye,” “Gone,” and “Tearin’ Up My Heart.” [nsyncishere]
Backstreet Boys Read more…
If you’ve ever compared the song titles on One Direction’s first album to some of the Backstreet Boys’ songs, you might notice quite a few similarities.
Serving as a guest host on TMZ, BSB’s A.J. McLean totally dissed One Direction for ripping off songs titles from the ’90s boyband.
In comparing ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ to ‘Makes You Different’ ; ‘More than This’ to ‘More than That’ and ‘I Wish’ to ‘One Wish’, AJ does have a point here.
But that being said, what do you really expect? These are pretty much generic boyband song titles and it’s not like the songs sound the same. Why can’t we all just enjoy the music?
And also, what’s with the BSB vs. ‘N SYNC rivalry? That’s so 90s!
And to be frank, I CAN name five AMAZING ‘N SYNC songs:
1. Bye Bye Bye
2. Dirty Pop
3. It’s Gonna Be Me (whoa sounds a lot like Gotta Be You to be honest….)
4. I Want You Back
5. Tearin Up My Heart
So, there you go Brian. I hope you’re applying cold water to your injuries because:
(I still love you BSB. Why can’t we all just be friends?)
2. Creepy shirtless Lance Bass fan art.
3. Look, a very little frog.
4. The Shining, starring Spongebob Squarepants.
5. True love
1. Mirror mirror…
Sleep tight everyone!
2. Somewhere over the rainbow
Hy Chalme snapped this pretty picture of New York City after the monstrous Hurricane Sandy came through. I wonder if Dorothy approves?
Someone came to work and found that their cubicle had been transformed into the cabin from The Cabin in the Woods. I don’t think I’d be able to last the whole day in that thing.
4. The failed escape
Just look at his face. It says I know I’m in trouble, but please love me anyway. I’m also pretty impressed by the fact that he could write a note. My dogs can’t do that.
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.

With all the comparisons between the two, we knew it was bound to happen, but we love it!
Growing up, I was a HUGE ‘N Sync fan (well mostly fangirling over Justin Timberlake) but either way, boy bands ruled the 90s and early 2000s. Nelly featured on the guy’s single, “Girlfriend,” with chill girls, choreographed dance moves and flashy cars. Fast-forward to the last few years and think of who’s been dominating the world with his ‘fever.’ It’s my new and everlasting love, Justin Bieber. When “Boyfriend” was released off his new album Believe, it made everyone come to terms that the little boy we all knew was actually growing up. I guess the cougars on the prowl snatched their tickets to his upcoming tour but hey, his fans are growing with him.
I don’t think there’s one negative thing to say about this mashup at all. YouTuber Raheemdaplayao4 commented on why he chose these songs in particular: “I genuinely wanted to mix these two songs because I knew they would go together so well.” I’m so glad he did cause this is going to be on repeat for the rest of the day!
Remember when Lance Bass once declared he wanted to go into outer space? The former boy band singer is once again on to peculiar pursuits.
According to The Advocate, Bass will be co-producing a theatre production about Hollywood Escorts. Hmm, does that mean Lindsay Lohan’s finally gonna get some work?
The play, The Fabulous Lies of Hollywood Whores, is written by Ben Deagle and will be produced by other stars alongside Bass including Jamie Kennedy.
The funny thing about this story is that Bass allegedly wants to cast Kirstie Alley as a pimp. I’m not sure what about the has-been actress with weight issues screams “Hollywood pimp”, but maybe we have to trust Lance on this one. I mean…this is the guy that once thought he could buy his way into a NASA space mission.
Pop Eater reports that JT was on-set shooting futuristic thriller “Now” when he hurt himself so badly he required crutches and rest. The film is on hiatus until Timberlake can get back on his feet and back into the action, which doctors are saying will take about two weeks.
He’s not completely incapacitated though – Timberlake appeared at the ArcLight theatre with his Social Network co-stars to answer some questions about the now infamous Facebook movie.
Until the MRI results give the “Now” crew the green light, the film will be completely ground to a halt.
Looks like “Now” may be a good time to start working on that next album, Justin?
Back when The Backstreet Boys and N’Sync were in the height of their popularity, most 15-year-old girls would have done anything to tour with them. But Mandy Moore, who did just that, told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday that it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.
“I don’t even think they knew I was there,” she said of her one-time tour mates. “I had a crush on a different guy every day of the week!” adding that Justin Timberlake was her number one obsession at the time.
Unfortunately, Timberlake didn’t exactly whisper sweet nothings to the “Candy” teenybopper. “He told me, ‘You have big feet for a girl,’” Mandy recalled. “I think he was trying to be cute.”
