Sorry to be the bearer of bad new but it looks like Justin Timberlake will be going it alone for his performance at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. TMZ talked to Joey Fatone outside a club the other night and he made it clear that there will be no much needed *NSYNC injection to dilute the 100% pure, raw and uncut JT performance. Joey says there will be no reunion! And no Janet Jackson either! But Joey! Will the Robin Williams-faced sex bot from the Filthy video make an appearance?!
Other than the fact that Joey is a 40 year old man out at the club wearing an *NSYNC t-shirt, he’s a perfectly reliable source. Joey says that it’s obvious there won’t be an *NSYNC reunion because if there was, he’d be somewhere rehearsing for it, not standing on the corner of Hollywood and Vine waiting for an Uber. Joey also shot down speculation that Janet might be an extra special guest. Ok, “speculation” is a stretch. I don’t think anybody ever really thought Janet was gonna make a surprise appearance but our collective need for poetic justice for Janet is powerful!
When asked if Janet might show, Joey responded “no” because Justin isn’t the controversial type and wouldn’t have Janet on just for the sake of getting tongues a-wagging. Joey said:
He’s not that kind of person. He’s not controversial like that. He is in a sense. But not in a sense that [he’d] do it deliberately.
Here’s the entire exchange.
No shit, Sherlock! Justin’s about as controversial as bowl of oatmeal with raisins in it but no butter. He’s a ramen packet that got over-boiled and the soup base got thrown out with the wrapper. Justin better have some kind of special guest up his sleeve or else its gonna seriously be the most insufferable Halftime Show since U2!
