A couple of weeks ago, sources in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, started spreading the rumor that Justin Timberlake had proposed to on-again girlfriend Jessica Biel while on a snowboarding trip. But if it’s true, we’ve heard nothing official since then. Maybe they didn’t want to get buried by all those other holiday love stories? But today, Us Weekly is hyping its new issue by citing “several insiders” who say the story is true.
“Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place,” one source reportedly told the magazine. Still, this brings us nowhere closer to an actual confirmation of the potentially happy news.
The story first came up when Tayloe Piggott, a jewelry store in the resort town, initially posted a note about it on Facebook, but they quickly denied any first-hand knowledge of the event, writing, “Again – our most sincere apologies to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. We cannot believe where this rumor, which started out as (seemingly innocent) news that had been circulating in Jackson Hole, has been blown into a massive gossip event. We hope that Justin and Jessica enjoyed their visit to our town and are so sorry that it has ended up with this fiasco.”
So, we know two facts: Jessica likes snowboarding. And the pair were in Jackson Hole. That’s something, we guess.
Honky cats, we don’t know how many times we have to tell you to get back, but we are not kidding around this time! Based on comments he made to the L.A. Times, Elton John is angling for his “number one” choice Justin Timberlake to play him in the upcoming biopic Rocketman, a film that is, according to the singer, “going to be a surreal look at my life, and not just a factual look at my life.” Well, this sounds like a perfect match for Justin. Singing? Check. Acting? Check. Wearing skin-tight ’70s bell bottoms while spiraling into a drug-filled vortex of debauchery? Oh, sorry, we just snapped our pencil in anticipation! The splinters, we can barely feel them!
If Elton John sounds a little biased, it’s only because he already knows Timberlake will look amazing in gigantic novelty glasses and a receding hairline; Justin portrayed Elton once before, in 2001. “He played me before in a David LaChapelle video of ‘Rocket Man’ and it was superb,” Elton added, though Rolling Stonegently points out that it was John’s video for “This Train Don’t Stop There Anymore” which starred a surprisingly convincing, adorably gap-toothed Timberlake. So what do you think? Should Justin Timberlake go full Elton, or does this have “fabulous disaster” written all over it?
Whoa now! Last we checked in with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, they were cordial ex’s who occasionally went on friendly bike rides together. Now reports are swirling that the ex-couple are now engaged! The Wyoming-area Tayloe Piggot Jewelry claims that JT popped the question to his on-again-off-again-apparently-on-again girlfriend at The Amangani, an upscale resort. “Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night,” the jewelers posted on their Facebook. “We’re picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool.”
New York PR agent Kyle Schaffler is adding fuel to the marriage flames. “I love that no media outlets know about the Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel engagement,” he tweeted. “Benefits of working in PR.” However, he says that it all went down at a different hotel, the equally swanky Jackson. But so far no one even remotely close to the pair have publicly commented. Which makes us wonder if the tales of a secret engagement are true, or just one big advertisement for Tayloe Piggot Jewlery and PR dude Kyle Schaffler. We’ll keep you posted.
There really is something about Cameron Diaz. The lovely leggy blonde has had dozens of leading men in her nearly 20 years as a film star, but she’s had almost as many in her personal life too! Cam has been romantically linked to such diverse (some would say “random”) dudes as Justin Timberlake, baseballer Alex Rodriguez, and even self-proclaimed Mind Freak, Criss Angel. But now it looks like she can add Diddy to her list of snuggle buddies.
Eyewitnesses told the New York Post that she and Diddy were mackin’ it at at the Dream Downtown Hotel on Saturday night. It was apparently after 1 a.m. when Diddy arrived at her table, and soon the bottles of Ciroc started flowing. “They were kissing and making out,” and being “very affectionate” as they danced before leaving together in the wee hours of the morning, the source said. Despite this, reps for both stars claim that the meeting was purely platonic. “They just friends,” said Diddy’s publicist, while Diaz’s agent insists that they were simply discussing a movie project. Sure…

Marine Corps Sgt. Scott Moore tweeted https://twitter.com/#!/theScottMoore/status/137643797956931585 on Friday, “Tonight is for you 7 Betio Bastards,” referring to the seven members of his unit, the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, who died in Afghanistan. But he might be forgiven if his mind wandered to his date once in a while. Mila Kunis made good on her pledge to attend the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, North Carolina, after his video asking her to the ball went viral.
“She gets credit and a lot of respect for coming here, not being part of this world and following through on her word,” Moore told People. She was “very nice and very respectful” at the ball, he said, leading us to wonder if maybe he feared she would slip into sarcastic Jackie mode during the event. Read more…
At last night’s party for the GQ Men of the Year, our friends over at MTV News asked a very important question: Who would win in a fight, GQ’s Men or People’s Sexiest Men?
“I’ll take on the whole entire cast of Parks and Recreation. I’ll leave Justin [Timberlake] to take care of Glee and Jimmy Fallon could karate-chop the rest of those guys,” GQ honoree Jay-Z joked. And Joe Manganiello, who made People’s list of 25 Sexy Chests to Be Thankful For (amen!), had the most brilliant idea: “I think we should do it for charity!”
There are multiple Marine Corps Balls, apparently. The one Mila is supposed to go to is scheduled for November 18 in Greenville, North Carolina. The pressure’s on for her to attend now, because Justin kept his promise and escorted Cpl. De Santis to the ball in Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday night. She met up with him at his hotel before going to the ball together, and Justin stayed through the evening. He looked pretty fine in his tux too, so that is one lucky lady.
He just doesn’t know how to quit you. He being Justin Timberlake, you being the corporeal embodiment of music, we guess. The point is, now matter how many dystopian sci-fi flicks he might star in or on-and-off relationships he might invest his emotional energy in, Justin promises that he will eventually make music feel sexy feelings again. “My idols as it were [Frank] Sinatra and Dean Martin and Gene Kelly, kind of the guys who could do it all,” Timberlake said during his Jimmy Kimmel Live interview last night. “And do it in a way that was authentic to them. I don’t think I could ever stop doing music.” Did you hear that, music? He wants to do you! Seems like our assumptions about Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s relationship preventing him from returning to his sweet, sweet tunes isn’t coming true! That Biel must be one open-minded woman!
Justin Timberlake‘s rooming with Ryan Gosling already made all of us squee enough for a lifetime. Just when you think it can’t get any better, it does. Ryan sat down with the The Independant and made some startling (and hilarious) confessions. He attributes his successes to the yin side of his personality — probably why he’s so great with women too, right? He admitted, “I think like a girl, I think. I was literally raised by my mother and my sister. And I just feel like I wouldn’t know how to think any other way.”
Ryan also discussed how he spent his time as a kid, revealing, “My sister was my best friend and my hero growing up. Because I was home-schooled I didn’t have a lot of friends and I did ballet, which was always just girls. All of that had an effect on my brain.”Â If you think the dancing is in the past, you’d be wrong. He added, “I practice whenever I can.” So now we may start trying to find him in L.A ballet studios. Just think about it: Ryan in a leotard. That’s something we could get on board with.
Justin Timberlake appeared on Ellen yesterday and dropped a bomb that will send fan fiction authors into overdrive. Apparently he and fellow mega-star Ryan Gosling used to be roommates! But before you let your fantasies wander, it’s probably important to note that this was when they were mere tweens, or “pre-hotties.” Little Ryan came to live with Justin when they were cast mates on The Mickey Mouse Club in the early ’90s. “His mother had to keep her job in Canada the second year that we were on the television show,” Justin explained, “and my mom was his guardian for like six months.” That’s how the bond between the two Mousketeers went deeper than most. “We were probably a little closer that the rest of the kids that were on the show just because we had to share a bathroom.”
