Don’t worry, you won’t ever find yourself wheeled into an emergency room and see Missy Elliott standing over you in head to toe Adidas scrubs, informing the closest triage nurse that she needs a team to assist her while she puts her thing down, flip it, and reverse it. Not that kind of doctor. It’s the honorary doctorate club, which Missy and Justin Timberlake are now members of.
Ariana Grande decided to gift herself–and I guess also us–with the gift of some sweet 90s nostalgia by bringing up four out five members of NSYNC on stage to perform at Coachella with her. Now it’s being rumored that there might be more to come. JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone are thinking about pulling themselves a Spice Girls-special and reuniting without…HIM.
Could it be that we finally have an answer to the age-old philosophical debate: Is Justin Timberlake necessary? Judging from the reaction of fans who watched Ariana Grande’s Coachella set last night, the answer is: Who? According to Vulture, as the headlining act for Sunday night, Ariana gave thousands of NSYNC fans the night of their lives by reuniting the band, sans JT.
For the past nine months, Justin Timberlake has been touring North America and Europe on his Man of the Woods Tour. Sadly, it looks like the only person who will be treated to Justin’s mugging in the foreseeable future is Jessica Biel, as he recently announced that Man of the Woods is about to become a Man in His House.
Imagine for a moment being Justin Timberlake. Of course there are some terrifying aspects of this scenario; you’re forever going to remind people of Top Ramen, Prince’s ghost will hate you for eternity, and you’ll have Wonder Wheel on your IMDB page forever. But the obvious advantage is that nobody will ever say “no” to you. Wanna rip Janet Jackson’s shirt off in front a worldwide audience? Sure! Want to write pop album but disguise it as a country album? Go ahead! Want to write a book called Hindsight: And All The Things I Can’t See In Front Of Me? Absolutely, Justin! That sounds like a great idea!
According to HITS Daily Double, next year’s Coachella will be headlined by Justin Timberlake, Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover), and current disaster in a red hat Kanye West.
