Justin Timberlake's super-sized 'TKO': How many Hot 100 singles can you fit in it? PopWatch investigates!

Fans waited a very long time for Justin Timberlake’s return to music. And thanks to the length of his new songs, they can spend about the same amount of time listening to that music.

With a two-part album and songs like “Mirrors,” which has a run time of 8:06, and newest single “TKO” (7:04), Timberlake is quite literally squeezing every second of music out of his long-awaited return. But just how drastic are his song lengths? Are they that much longer than the biggest songs right now?

The short answer: Pretty much.

Below is a list of the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 along with the run time for each of the songs:

It's Beyonce's 32nd B'Day! Here are 32 lessons her lyrics taught us

Queen Bey knows what success feels like. She’s a successful businesswoman, a successful wife, a successful mother, a successful singer … basically, if you look up “success” in the dictionary, there will be a ridiculously gorgeous, uber glamorous shot of Beyonce’s face.

So today, to celebrate the 32nd birthday of the Queen of Pop, we’ve rounded up 32 important life lessons that we might never have learned if it weren’t for Bey belting them out (while also performing a challenging dance routine in high heels). Check out her best lyrical lessons below: READ FULL STORY

Boy Band Battle -- Results: And the greatest boy band of all-time is ...

I would start this post with “Backstreet’s back, alright!” but here’s the thing: They never left (hence the album titled Never Gone). The boys have been a part of our lives for the past 20 years, and now, after a week of debating the many factors that make up a good boy band — the look, the music videos, the dance moves, the vocal ability, and the live performance — it’s official: You all have named the Backstreet Boys as the greatest boy band of all-time.

The Boys started strong, beating out Boyz II Men, New Kids on the Block, New Edition, NSYNC and One Direction for Best Group Appearance (with 42% of the vote) on the first day of Boy Band Battles. On Day 2, they dominated Best Music Videos with 46% of the vote. They crushed the Best Dancers category with 65% of the vote, and continued their domination with Best Vocal Moments (50%) and Best Live Performances (39%).

So now, let us celebrate by discussing our favorite things about AJ, Brian, Kevin, Nick, and Howie: READ FULL STORY

Throwback Thursday: Remember when David Hasselhoff could fly? -- VIDEO

David Hasselhoff has been many things: A lifeguard, a dude with a really cool talking car, a music star (in Germany), a cheeseburger-lover, and even a highly desired cardboard cutout. But what is it about this man that makes him so popular? Well, we found one video that sums just about everything up.

You see, back when music videos weren’t as fancy as they are today, people were forced to get a little creative. For some, that meant intricate dance routines and outrageous outfits. For Hasselhoff, it meant the chance to fly and clone himself.  We have no idea what his inspiration was for his “Hooked On A Feeling” video, and we don’t care. We’re just so happy it happened.

Check out the music video for “Hooked On A Feeling” below: READ FULL STORY

'Forbes' names Madonna the highest paid celebrity of 2013

The Material Girl isn’t going to be short on materials anytime soon.

Madonna has been named the highest paid celebrity of 2013 by Forbes, which reports that the pop star brought in $125 million between June 2012 and June 2013. Not even an album flop can keep this woman down.

Behind Madonna is the king of movies, Steven Spielberg, with $100 million, the king of reality singing competitions, Simon Cowell, with $95 million, and the queen who gave us the red room of pain, E.L. James, also with $95 million. Rounding out the top five is Howard Stern — the king of awkwardness? — with the ever-popular intake of $95 million.

The first athlete joins the list at number 12, with Tiger Woods bringing in $78 million. And believe it or not, Oprah Winfrey sits at number 13 with $77 million. Luckily, that’s still enough money to give away a handful of cars if she feels the need.

Hey, Kelly Clarkson, it's time to release an album of cover songs

The time: More than a decade ago — 2002, to be specific — and it was Big Band Week on American Idol. Ugh, this week is going to suck, I said to myself, letting my distaste for the genre shine through. And I would have been correct in my assumption — had it not been for Kelly Clarkson’s rousing, fun-filled, and totally punchy performance of Betty Hutton’s “Stuff Like That There.” That was the first time I remember thinking, with 100 percent conviction, that Kelly Clarkson could sing anything — and it would be far from the last.

Fast forward to today, when I stumbled upon a two-week old YouTube video of her covering Mumford & Sons’s “I Will Wait,” which I’ve been rewinding Michael Scott-style on YouTube for the last four hours. READ FULL STORY

Is a vast hoard of 'E.T.' videogames really buried at a landfill site in New Mexico?

Atari-2600-ET.jpg

We may never find out if Big Foot exists, who Carly Simon wrote “You’re So Vain” about, or whether Leonardo DiCaprio is dreaming at the end of Inception. But there is one pop culture mystery which might be cleared up in the near future. For decades, it has been rumored that Atari buried millions of copies of its E.T. videogame at a landfill site in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Now, the Alamogordo city council has given the Los Angeles-based Fuel Entertainment permission to search the site for a film project and find out if one of the videogame industry’s most enduring myths is fact or fiction. “The dumping of the E.T. cartridges has always been one of the biggest urban legends in videogame history,” says Mike Burns, cofounder and CEO of Fuel Entertainment’s parent company, Fuel Industries. “We wanted to find out what’s really in there and put an end to the rumors.”

Cheyenne-Jackson-Clip.jpg

Cheyenne Jackson must have a busy haberdasher, because the man has been known to wear a lot of different hats: scene-stealing TV actor (30 Rock, Behind the Candelabra), theater thespian (Xanadu, Finian’s Rainbow), and — especially these days — musician.

Jackson’s set to release his debut solo album I’m Blue, Skies tomorrow, and you can watch the video for his single “She Pretty, She Lies,”co-penned by Sia, the singer (“Breathe Me”) and songwriter (Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” Christina Aguilera’s “You Lost Me”) exclusively here.

The clip, helmed by Peter Tokay, features a fully clothed CJ getting all wet, getting all drunk, and getting all destructive — and doing it all backwards, no less!
