Justin Timberlake serenades Jessica Biel at wedding reception -- What song would you want to hear?

Sorry gals, it looks like love. While performing at his wedding reception, Justin Timberlake reportedly debuted a new song for his ladylove, Jessica Biel.

Us Weekly reported the news, and if true, this means that the man whose music career has been on hold since 2006 actually took the time to pen some lyrics for his betrothed. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.

Since the ceremony consisted of an intimate gathering of friends and family, I doubt there’s any shaky camera footage of the performance out there. (Not that we didn’t try combing YouTube.) There’s no word on whether Timberlake will release the new tune, but in the meantime, let’s debate which Timberlake song we would have wanted him to sing to us? READ FULL STORY

'Cry Me A River': Justin Timberlake isn't married to you

Well, the moment anyone who ever perfected a “Bye Bye Bye” dance dreaded has finally arrived: Justin Timberlake is officially hitched. Alas, he didn’t marry you; he married Jessica Biel. Best wishes to them, of course. But Twitter informs me that some women are just a wee bit upset at hearing the news that the guy they’ve been planning to marry since they were 13 has gone and rudely tied the knot without them. I just received an email from a friend “jokingly” asking if we could cancel our plans tonight, as she would be inconsolable for at least 24 hours.

In honor of the new chapter in his life – and then end of a chapter in yours — check out some of our favorite moments that have had us crushing on Timberlake over the years.

He Displays Some Model Behavior:
For many, this was where the crush began. If the movies have taught us anything, it’s that the only thing between you and your favorite celebrity falling in love with you is physically being in the same space. That’s certainly the story when Jason (Timberlake) falls in love with a real-life, ordinary high school girl. (Start the video at 6:00 for maximum Timberlake swooning). READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake's Myspace 2.0 looks surprisingly awesome -- VIDEO

For years, Myspace — which does, in fact, still exist — has been nothing but a punchline, a goofy cyber relic on par with Friendster or Pets.com. But a new video indicates that the nine-year-old social network might not be down for the count after all — thanks to a spiffy revamping and help from Social Network star/co-owner Justin Timberlake. Lying down and letting Facebook take over the world isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? A [billion] relaunches.

Myspace 2.0 boasts a clean, modern interface that fuses the best of Google+ and Pinterest, displaying tons of content without seeming cluttered. It seems designed for tablet use, which could set it apart from its competition — if those sites weren’t also doing the same thing. Here, check it out:

'Trouble With the Curve' ending: The one moment it was subtle?

SPOILER ALERT! If you’ve read Lisa Schwarzbaum’s review of Trouble With the Curve, you know she found it a tad predictable. And she’s right: We knew the nice kid was a big league pitcher in the making from the moment he threw those peanuts to the totally unlikable hot-shot hitter being scouted for the Braves by Clint Eastwood’s Gus. We knew Mickey (Amy Adams), Gus’ lawyer daughter who was along for the ride because her father’s eyesight is going, would eventually fall for Justin Timberlake’s Johnny, a pitcher once recruited by Gus who blew out his arm when he was traded to the Red Sox and then became a scout for them. We knew even though Gus told the Braves — and Johnny — not to select the hot-shot because he couldn’t hit a curve ball, the Sox would believe Johnny and pass on him and the Braves wouldn’t believe Gus and take him. We knew Johnny would get fired and end his budding romance with Mickey, thinking that she and Gus had planned to steal the No. 1 pick all along. We knew Mickey would, in the end, bring the nice kid for a tryout with the Braves and he’d strike out the hot-shot. We knew Mickey would quit her job at the boys’ club law firm that wouldn’t make her partner and become a sports agent — and get back together with Johnny (who’d be waiting by his car like he was Jake Ryan in Sixteen Candles, because what thirtysomething woman wouldn’t want that?).

On the scene: Braving the waterworks at the Stand Up to Cancer telethon

They wanted to move us. And oh, did they know how.

The highlight of the Stand Up to Cancer telethon helmed by Gwyneth Paltrow and a cast of A-list celebrities Friday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles was Taylor Swift’s ode to a cancer victim, a 3-year-old boy named Ronan.

If you’re not getting emotional yet, Swift did it for you. The 22-year-old country singer struggled to hold back tears as she sang the touching ballad she wrote after reading a mom’s blog about losing her little boy to neuroblastoma last year. The song begins, “I remember your bare feet down the hallway, I remember your little laugh…”

The audience of Hollywood elite, cancer survivors, and fans choked up as they listened to this and other testimonies aimed at inspiring donors to give funds to the Stand Up to Cancer organization.

Watch out, Channing Tatum: Is Justin Timberlake lobbying to be our most shirtless actor?

Justin Timberlake once promised to have us naked by the end of this song — but more often than not, he’s getting naked before the end of his movies. Check out the trailer for the multitalented performer’s new film Trouble with the Curve, and you’ll notice the clip pointedly includes a scene in which the man who brought sexy back strips to his skivvies. This moment is just the tip of the naked iceberg.

The trend began in 2006’s Alpha Dog, JTim’s very first feature film. In it, the onetime Mickey Mouse Club member disrobes to reveal a taut torso covered in fake tattoos. Shirtless scenes with Christina Ricci in Black Snake Moan (2006) and a goofy ’70s ‘stache in The Love Guru (2008) followed. (Man, remember The Love Guru?) Heck, Timberlake even took it off in The Social Network (2010), his breakout “serious” role. And for the record, Boo Boo, the character he voiced in 2010’s Yogi Bear, doesn’t wear a shirt either.

What is your damage, Justin Bieber?

Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies (see page two). Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!

What is your damage, Justin Bieber? How dare you grow up, ditch the wind-blasted bangs, and turn into The Lady of Shellac?

Forgive me for piling on, Justin Boyfriend, but you are everywhere. Songs from your album Believe (out June 19) are leaking every two minutes. NBC’s airing an hour-long documentary called Justin Bieber Believe: All Around the World on June 21. I cannot escape you.

Guess where it’s hardest (to escape you)? IN BED. That’s what I said. READ FULL STORY

'Saturday Night Live' recap: The welcome return of Maya Rudolph... and Amy Poehler... and Justin Timberlake

Saturday Night Live fans are a fickle, often divided bunch. You’re typically either of the variety that believes the show’s heyday has long since passed or you’re part of the group that will staunchly defend the current cast and the show itself until the very end. But it’s not as though those two groups can never intersect or see eye-to-eye on the long-running series. In fact, last night’s hysterical and edgy episode of SNL may have been the ultimate unifier: A fusion of greats from the show’s past effortlessly blending with the new.

Much like when Jimmy Fallon hosted back in December, Maya Rudolph‘s first time as host since being a full-time cast member was a heartfelt, energetic, and consistently funny affair. When a former SNL player returns to the stage at Studio 8H and they say they’re thrilled to be back, you can tell they really mean it. And much like a joyous Jimmy Fallon, Maya brought her A-game. She brought it all the way from her lively opening monologue,  in which she sang a little ditty about her promiscuous days on SNL (complete with appearances from Lorne Michaels, Paul Simon, and — yay! — Stefon) until the very last minute of the show.

Best of 2011: The Year in Memes

After 2011, will the word “occupy” ever mean the same thing to you again? Can you ever deny the omnipotence of Ryan Gosling? (He’s a gentleman and a feminist scholar!) A Californian taxidermist and a Pop Tart-shaped cat with a catchy theme song suddenly had relevance, and everyday folks like you and me suddenly had a chance for a date with the likes of Justin Timberlake.

These are just a sampling of the most memorable memes to overtake the World Wide Web over the last 12 months. We’ve got one for every month. Check them out after the jump! READ FULL STORY

Best of 2011: Viral video edition!

The first 10 years of the new millennium brought us Christian the LionAntoine Dodson, and some formerly floppy-haired Canadian kid you may have heard of named Justin Bieber, so how has the first year of this decade shaped up, virally speaking? Well, let’s see… hydrangeas were pronounced hateful (or, to be more accurate, loathsome), Beauty and the Beast got the West Hollywood treatment, a respected newsman collapsed into giggles over a Frenchman’s urine, a teen shot to stardom by serenading a day of the week, and… well, we could go on and on. Instead, we’ve posted all that’s fit to embed over the next several pages. Get ready to lay your emotions bare like the girl in this 2008 viral fave, then click through!
