There are a ton of actor-singers who can’t dance (Gwyneth Paltrow, Jamie Fox) — and the list of singer-dancers who can’t act is endless (Madonna, Britney Spears). But these multi-talented megastars manage to do it all, and well! Now Hollywood, please give us a watchable musical…
And what is Emma Stone doing in Brooklyn? All this plus new photos from The Bling Ring and casting news for Divergent in this morning’s “While You Were Sleeping”.

Superstar Justin Timberlake hosted Saturday Night Live last night for the fifth time, thus putting him in the elite “Five-Timers Club”. He also reunited with Lonely Island cohort Andy Samberg, impersonated Elton John, stood next to the Three Amigos, and brought us all down to Veganville.
Oh, and he sang two songs from his new album, too.
This Sunday night, we get to celebrate the second coming of Justin Timberlake’s music career with what’s destined to be a show stopping performance during the 2013 Grammys! It’s been a long cold musical winter since he dropped his last album (2006′s FutureSex/LoveSounds), during which time we had to make due with a whole host of pop prince pretenders (we’re lookin’ at you Taio Cruz).Well no more! JT has returned to us, and now it’s time to feast on the bounty of his new tracks. Sadly we have to wait a few more days before we can hear his tunes, so for now let’s feast our eyes on his best award show fashion of all time!
Here’s what we think we know about what Justin Timberlake said on Saturday, when he performed at DirecTV’s Super Bowl-eve bash in New Orleans: Reports from attendees, such as a HollywoodLife reporter, say that he told the crowd: “Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out that she is just some bitch!” And then he launched into “Cry Me a River,” the song he’s admitted was about his breakup with Britney Spears.
So he’s calling Britney “some bitch,” right? But on Sunday evening, he tweeted:
OK, so that means he wasn’t talking about her “personally,” just generally, before singing one of his most personal songs, that he wrote maybe possibly after finding out that Britney maybe possibly cheated on him with dancer Wade Robson. He ws speaking generally about all those other major breakups he’s had (Cameron Diaz?). We get it. #Respect. Just keep on singing, JT. And don’t try to enter politics, please.
Because we love this hint of bitterness, though, we put this question to you:
Today may be Justin Timberlake’s 32nd birthday, but he has certainly been celebrating all month long. The object of all female attention debuted his new single “Suit and Tie” earlier this month, and after seven long years – we have the blue pigmentation on our faces from holding our breath to prove it – has announced the release of his third studio album, The 20/20 Experience (March 19). But that isn’t all! Justin and his team clearly were not satisfied until we all died of excitement because it has been confirmed that Justin will join the growing list of artists to perform at this year’s Grammy Awards. Well, may we all rest in peaceful bliss!
But let’s not forget! Before this talented hunk needed to a poncho to protect his suit and tie from the drool of females everywhere, he shined as a child star on The Mickey Mouse Club, and dominated the boy band scene as one-fifth of N*Sync – all while perfecting his synchronized dance moves and making girls swoon. So, in honor of his birthday, we’ve put together a gallery of Justin’s journey into all of our hearts, from his Mickey Mouse Club member past to his very sexy present. Check ‘em out!

Celebrities — they’re just like us, right? By which we mean, our stars arrive as a mixed bag: We have our American sweethearts, the class clowns and, of course, the bad seeds. Even if it’s normal for a former Disney teenage star to flash her crotch in public these days, Santa does not approve. And yet other A-listers used their stardom in 2012 to rise above the fray, display their philanthropic ways, and prove there are menches in Hollywood. Their hard work does not go unnoticed, and we know those little elves (a.k.a., their agents) are stuffing some A-list gifts in their stockings. Because we all know that Justin Bieber really needs another hoodie. And maybe we need the Lindsay Lohans out there to make us appreciate the Matt Damons even more. Here we’ve broken down our list of our naughty n’ nice celebrities of 2012.
1. Chris Brown – I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Brown brawled with Drake in a club, rekindled a romance with the woman he abused and tattooed an image of a battered woman on his neck. Ah, Chris Brown. You never fail to prove you are the biggest douchebag there ever was. Not only will Santa be skipping your house this year, but I can assure you, Dancer, Prancer, and Rudolph will send you a stocking filled with their droppings.
2. Amanda Bynes – The former child star who rose to fame with All That and The Amanda Show is now giving audiences a different kind of Amanda show — one filled with hit and runs and DUIs. Santa may not think you’re all that this year, but hopefully you can take that as a sign to get it together for 2013. Put down the booze, get some help, and nab a supporting role in an indie comedy to reboot your career. Or, if you’re really retiring from acting, take a break from making headlines too. We’re rooting for you, Amanda.
3. Nicki Minaj – Nicki needs to learn to respect her elders … and the divas around town. She and Mariah Carey have been at it since auditions of American Idol this year, and we’re placing blame on the rap star who allegedly threatened to “shoot” Mariah in an argument. There’s no need for that kind of drama in the search for America’s next pop star, is there? Coal for you, Ms. Minaj.
Taylor Swift is holding hands with Harry Styles of One Direction, Lindsay Lohan is partying down and stealing the sweatshirt of Max George from The Wanted. Boy bands are back in a big way, and they’re stealing some of the brightest lights in tinsel town! But then again, who could blame them with their cool hair and cool clothes and…other cool guys with cool hair and cool clothes around them. Gah, sometimes is really does pay to travel in groups!
Tay and Lilo are definitely not the first famous ladies who have been swayed by the charms of a boy-bander. And chances are high that they won’t be the last either! Sure, everyone knows about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but remember that time he hooked up with Jenna Dewan? They obviously didn’t last, but we guess she made out ok in the end by marrying Channing Tatum and all. Before her punch-filled love triangle, Halle Berry stepped out with New Kid on the Block Danny Wood. Joe Jonas can count Camilla Belle and Taylor Swift among his suitors, whereas Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus preferred his brother Nick. Head down to the gallery below to see the boy-band hookups that you totally forgot about!

Jessica Biel‘s landed Elle‘s January 2013 cover, and as you can see above, we don’t know what takes precdence: that necklace or her bangs! She poses with a number of our favorite designers in the spread, including Giambattista Valli, Jean Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaïa, but the interview is all about her wedding to Justin Timberlake, and what it’s like being Mrs. J.T. She’s also talked about the now-famous pink wedding dress she wore, saying, “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink. It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream.”
Another super cute moment is when she talks about Justin’s domestic side — he really has one, people — revealing, “He bakes pies. He’s Southern, so he’s got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie…and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn’t happen all that often, thank God. Otherwise, it would be a big problem.” And does anyone else think their idea of marriage sounds adorable, but kind of sexy? Her idea comprises, “It means always having someone there to open the pickle jar…to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing.” He bakes and goes skinny-dipping — do not let this one go, Jessica.

If anything was going to convince us that newlyweds Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had nothing to do with that horribly tasteless homeless video his friends made, this was it: Just home from their glam wedding in Italy and secluded honeymoon in Tanzania, the couple headed out to hurricane ravaged Far Rockaway, New York, on Saturday to hand out supplies. Of course, we assume that if your home has been destroyed by floods and you haven’t had power in two weeks, the last thing you care about is who the person is handing you a backpack full of much-needed supplies, even if they have perfect bone structure. Still, we know relief efforts still need every helping hand they could get, so we hope that the sight of makeup-less Jessica and low-key JT laboring away for three and a half hours inspires a few of their fans to get out there and help too. Also, this might be the best collaboration ever between Timberlake and Timbaland.
