We could take or leave procedurals as a television genre, but resistance against the Ripped From The Headlines trope has proven to be futile for us as viewers. Even though we generally don’t think twice about tuning into an episode of Law & Order: SVU (or any show in the L&O family, for that matter), when news first broke last week that the show was taking a cue from the volatile relationship between Chris Brown and Rihanna, we immediately went home and set our DVR.

Instagram and Twitter are the gift and curse to the lives of today’s celebrities. But in the case of Jermaine Dupri tweeting, “In the studio with @mariahcarey all night, 6am, sometimes it feels like, she’s the Rapper and I’m the Diva,” we’re happy they’ve chosen to share that moment with millions of followers.

Justin Timberlake And Jay-Z Compete To See Who Is Cooler In “Suit & Tie” Video

With a lyric video that already went above and beyond expectations, thanks to floating musical notes and  a slow-moving pan across some well-toned arms well-fitted tuxedos, Justin Timberlake‘s latest offering ups the ante yet again. If coaxing Jay-Z into lending a verse to “Suit & Tie” didn’t make it clear, Mr. JT is very serious about this comeback, and even further proof lies in the official music video’s director: David (Freaking) Fincher, an Oscar nominee and the man who is partly responsible for your latest Netflix binge.

Justin Timberlake’s New Songs: Heavy On LoveSounds, Light On FutureSex

Justin Timberlake Performs in New Orleans

While Beyoncé captivated our attention and manipulated all our senses there was other music to be heard in New Orleans over the weekend. Justin Timberlake was the entertainment of choice at bajillionaire Mark Cuban’s DirecTV party on Saturday night, jumping ahead of his Grammy performance by seven days because no one in this world likes to stick to previously announced dates. JT took the stage as a featured solo performer for the first time in years–excluding pop-up performances at his BBQ joint–debuting “Suit & Tie” live (with Jay-Z!) and revealing two more new songs from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience. Yes, the flawless, throwback wardrobe helps, but at this point it seems hard for Justin Timberlake to convey any other than an effortless cool (MySpace projects included).
