Back in November of 2019, Justin Timberlake was caught cheating on Jessica Biel while shooting a movie in New Orleans.
Or maybe he wasn't ...
We guess it really depends on what your definition of cheating is.
Whatever the case, we think everyone can agree that Justin was engaged in behavior that he knew his wife would not be happy about, which means he certainly wasn't entirely innocent.
As you may recall, Justin was spotted holding hands with his co-star Alisha Wainwright, and the photos created quite a stir.
(This was in a simpler, pre-coronavirus time, when something like a married pop star holding another woman's hand was enough to generate a month's worth of headlines.)
For several weeks, there were credible rumors that Jessica could no longer trust Justin, and she was on the verge of bringing their marriage to an end.
The tide began to turn when Justin issued a public apology -- a gesture that may or may not have been a response to one of Jessica's demands.
"A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar," Timberlake wrote in a statement that appeared on all of his social media pages.
"I drank way too much that night and regret my behavior. I should have known better," he added.
"This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that."
At the time, insiders say a combination of Justin's apology and all the time he's been spending at home due to quarantine were enough to save the marriage.
Justin and Jessica welcomed a second child last month, which was widely accepted as a sign that their relationship is more than okay.
(Even though Jessica was almost certainly already pregnant at the time of Justin's lapse.)
But now, a source tells OK! magazine that Jessica also made a major demand of Justin before she agreed to give him a second chance.
According to a new report in the tabloid, Justin and Jessica signed a new nuptial agreement that would grant her primary custody of their children and "a huge share of his money" if he cheats.
"If Justin was stupid enough to mess up, he’d make sure Jess had everything and more. but he says it’ll never come to that," an insider tells the magazine.
If Justin were really on the verge of cheating, would he stop and reflect on the potential damage to his bank account?
Probably not, but it's possible that the gesture was meant as a sign to Jessica of how seriously he intends to take his marital vows from here on out.
Hey, whatever arrangement these two agreed upon, it seems to be working for both of them -- just don't expect Justin to be standing anywhere near Alisha at the red carpet premiere of the movie they filmed together.
According to a shocking new report, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have welcomed their second child.
In related news:
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were apparently expecting a second child!
The Daily Mail has broken this unexpected story, reporting that Biel gave birth a few days ago to a son and is now caring for the newborn alongside her famous husband and their five-year old firstborn, Silas.
Neither Timberlake nor Biel has confirmed this arrival just yet.
We also cannot confirm the child's name or measurements at this time.
Timberlake and Biel have not been pictured publicly since March and are believed to have been staying at their home in Big Sky, Montana, since March 25.
No outlet out there even hinted over the past several months that Biel was pregnant.
But think about it:
It's not all that difficult to shield the world from your baby bump during a pandemic, you know?
On July 4, Biel shared a video on Instagram from 2019 showing herself and Timberlake learning how to throw axes at targets.
Both celebrities have also recognized the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement and push for both social justice and police reform.
Again, however: Good luck finding a photos of Biel's stomach out there at any point since mid-March or so.
The alleged birth of the couple's new son comes just eight months after Timberlake was caught getting WAY too cozy actress Alisha Wainwright during a night out in New Orleans, Louisiana.
In November, the two were seen holding hands while out and about after a day of filming a movie together.
Spokespeople for the actors said there was nothing romantic going on between them.
And Timberlake later issued a lengthy apology, admitting he was drinking the night the snapshots were taken... not that this was an excuse for his behavior.
"I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior," the singer wrote back then.
"I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son.
"I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that.
"I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it."
Biel seemingly accepted this mea culpa, too.
On Valentine's Day, she posted a photo of her husband and her son, along with the caption: "My valentines [heart emoji]. Love you guys to the [moon emoji]."
On May 10, she then posted another family photo, which appeared to have been taken in Montana, and which read:
"These two people make being a momma the greatest job in the whole world! The moments spent with you are truly the most precious and funniest and glorious times of my life."
So... Timberlake's inappropriate actions took place about 8 months ago?
And Biel seemingly just gave birth?
The math adds up.
Congrats to the couple on some passionate, unprotected makeup sex!
Earlier this year, Justin Timberlake was spotted holding hands with a female co-star while shooting a movie in New Orleans.
The situation presented a problem, as Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel, was at home with the couple's 4-year-old son at the time.
Needless to say, the public reaction to Justin's perceived act of infidelity was not favorable.
And no one was harsher in their assessment of the situation than hardcore Britney Spears stans.
Britney fans had a field day with the allegations, arguing that Justin had a history of infidelity and had been unfaithful to Spears on numerous occasions.
There's no evidence to support those claims, but internet fan bases generally don't concern themselves with such trivial matters as facts.
One might think that Brit's inner circle would join those fans in delighting in Justin's marital troubles, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
On Friday, Jamie Lynn Spears posted a throwback photo that many fans have taken as a sign that she bears no ill will toward Justin.
"Nothing like childhood memories...." she captioned the pic.
The image shows a very young Jamie hanging out with Britney, Justin, and Natalie Portman hanging out in the early 2000s.
For the most part, the reponse from fans was overwhelmingly positive.
“This is the cutest thing i have seen all day," wrote actress JoAnna Garcia.
"Iconic," added Jamie's Zoey 101 costar Chris Massey.
Of course, the Britney worshippers had their say, as well, and many pointed out that Jaime did not acknowledge Justin's presence in the pic.
“Mood: not tagging Justin,” one fan wrote on Jamie’s post.
It's worth noting, however, that Natalie and Britney weren't tagged, either.
For what it's worth, the Justin-Britney beef seems to be almost entirely invented by the public.
Both parties have commented on their rocky relationship and subsequent split, but it seems there's no lingering ill will on either side.
“I’ve been scorned. I’ve been pissed off,” Timberlake wrote in his 2018 memoir.
He also opened up about the genesis of his famous revenge ballad.
“I wrote ‘Cry Me a River’ in two hours. I didn’t plan on writing it.," he added.
"The feelings I had were so strong that I had to write it, and I translated my feelings into a form where people could listen and, hopefully, relate to it.”
For her part, Britney rarely mentions JT, but when she does, she always makes a point of singing his praises.
“Aerosmith [frontman Steven Tyler] seems really good and bright. He’s a genius, I think. He’s very rock ’n’ roll,” Britney said when asked about her dream collaborators in a 2016 interview.
“He sings from his soul. Gwen Stefani, I think she’s great. Justin Timberlake is very good.”
Now, there's a collab that would leave Britney stans with some very confused feelings!
As you've almost certainly heard by now, Justin Timberlake was spotted holding hands with actress Alisha Wainwright over the weekend.
We would be supportive of JT launching an on-set romance with his latest co-star were it not for the pesky fact that he's married to Jessica Biel, who was at home raising his child at the time of the scandalous hand-hold.
Needless to say, the people who comment on this sort of thing on social media were livid on Jessica's behalf.
A hand-hold might not sound terribly scandalous, but it's worth noting that Justin had removed his wedding ring (even though he and Alisha weren't filming at the time) and there was some light hand-on-knee contact:
“At one stage, he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee," one witness tells E! News.
"She then gently started stroking his leg. Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands.”
Stroking? Clutching?! Playing?!?!?
It's not hard to see why Biel supporters might be so upset by the description of this situation.
Biel herself has yet to speak out on the situation publicly, but we're guessing she has some words for the man who was all on his high horse in "Cry Me a River" and is now out there just getting his carress on in broad daylight!
Anyway, one person who's not keeping mum on the situation is Wainwright herself.
The acrtress hasn't spoken out on the situation directly, a rep for Wainwright issued a statement to Us Weekly on Monday:
“There is no validity to this speculation," the rep said.
"They are working on a project together."
Wainwright's team wants there to be no misinformation with regard to the actress' (strictly professional) relationship with Timberlake.
“There is nothing going on between them,” a source close to Alisha tells People magazine.
"The video may look a way, but literally, it was nothing. It was some friends, members of the team, crew and people like that," the insider adds.
"They all know each other and were hanging. Like, come on, they’re on an open balcony in New Orleans and he’s famous. It was nothing.”
To be fair to everyone involved, it's entirely possible that the physical contacyt between Justin and Alisha was entirely platonic.
That said, we can see why Jessica might have been less than thrilled by the video.
Justin Timberlake may be famous for bringing sexy back.
But multiple reports, and even damaging news photos, now allege that the beloved singer may have brought a sexy woman home with him this weekend.
And that woman was not his wife.
In photos posted by The Sun that have since gone viral, Timberlake was out in New Orleans on Thursday night with Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright!.
These pictures depict the singer and the actress on the balcony of The Absinthe House, a Big Easy bar on that city’s famously raucous Bourbon Street.
They are rather explicit and, as some are speculating, also rather telling,
Wainwright was spotted in the images with her hand on Timberlake’s knee — and they were also covertly seen holding hands under a table… with the artist appearing to NOT be wearing his wedding ring.
Timberlake, of course, has been married to Jessica Biel for seven years.
They have a son named Silas and have often come across as one of the more stable and content couples in Hollywood.
Just consider these anniversary tributes from the superstars to each other back in 2017.
Just under a year ago, however, we started to hear grumbling that a divorce could be nigh for the couple, although obviously there’s been no paperwork filed in the ensuing 11 months.
The Sun reports that Timberlake and Wainwright were talking and drinking in the aforementioned bar at around midnight and were smiling and laughing together.
There’s also a video.
It appears to feature the singer placing his arm around the actress’ waist and it also appears to feature Timberlake looking a bit unsteady, presumably due to extreme alcohol intake.
Here is a recent photo of Alisha Wainwright:
She and Timberlake costar in the drama Palmer, which is about a former college football star who goes back to his hometown after a stint in prison.
The actress has also enjoyed roles on Criminal Minds and Lethal Weapon before landing her breakout role on Freeform’s Shadowhunters.
She likes to box and is good friends with Michael B. Jordan.
Just this past June, Timberlake gushed about his wife while delivering a speech at the 2019 Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York City.
“To my wife, who is here tonight and who has given me the greatest gift of love,” Timberlake said, adding at the time:
“Our son is 4 now, and he’s dope too! I’ve written so many songs because of that that I’m so proud of and I just …
“I’m extremely humbled. I hope that I can represent this award for all of you.”
Biel. meanwhile, paid an emotional tribute to her husband earlier this year after he wrapped up his Man of the Woods tour.
“I would say that I’m so proud of you but I feel like that’s the understatement of the century and that somehow that I take ownership to what you’ve done this past year and a half,” Biel said in an Instagram video backstage at his concert in April.
“I just am in absolute awe of you every night to see you up there in your glory, doing what you’ve been put on this Earth to do.”
And Biel concluded this spring:
You make my heart burst with joy and love when I see you doing your thing, baby. I’m your No. 1 fan, I love you.
Justin Timberlake’s New Clothing Line with Levi’s Is Here – and It’s Available to Shop at Nordstrom Now
The singer teamed up with the denim brand for a 20-piece men’s collection called Fresh Leaves, available at Nordstrom today, His mission? To give Levi’s iconic brand staples (like the trucker jacket and 501 Slim jeans) a fresh and modern update. His line of jackets, button-downs, hoodies, jeans and beanies all range from $30-$158.
He took inspiration from Levi’s classics and thoroughly did his research to understand the design process. He visited Levi’s San Francisco Eureka Innovation Lab, the brand’s archives and the L.A. showroom, Haus of Strauss, to get a comprehensive overview and understanding of the brand.
“We immediately connected with Justin on creating pieces that blended the familiar with the unexpected,” says Karyn Hillman, Chief Product Officer for Levi Strauss & Co. “Inspired by the stories behind Justin’s music, we used classic materials – canvas, plaids, camo, flannels, sherpa and denim and put them onto familiar silhouettes and Levi’s icons but remixed them by infusing streetwear elements and hits of modernity.”
In an interview, Timberlake tells PEOPLE the collaboration just felt natural. “Levi’s has always been a staple in my life so there’s something incredibly authentic about it for me,” he says. “During the last tour , I wouldn’t come off stage and wear suits, that was meant to be on stage. Off stage, you’d probably catch me in some Levi’s.”
“I love fashion so I always try to do like a little bit of a swerve on whatever I’m , but style is not meant to be taken too literally; I try not to overthink it,” he says about his own fashion sense.
You can put your own “swerve” on your classic wardrobe staples by picking up a few pieces from Timberlake’s new line. Whether you’ll be buying for the man in your life or for yourself (ladies, the oversize trucker jacket is very in right now), it has something for everyone.
You’ll find select styles on all Nordstrom stores and the entire Fresh Leaves collection on Nordstrom.com. And to help get your shopping spree started, we selected a few of our favorite styles, below.

Justin Timberlake has Big Dick Energy because he has a big dick.
Patricia Clarkson confirmed as much on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live
Andy Cohen begins by asking Clarkson, “Who had the biggest chance of being your friend with benefits on the set of ‘Friends With Benefits’?”
To which Clarkson replies, “Hands down, Justin Timberlake. ‘Cause if we want to talk about big.”
Clarkson explains that she saw a naked Timberlake on the set of Friends With Benefits and confirmed that he is gorgeous. Cohen pressed, asking, “He’s gifted below the waist?”
Clarkson’s reply went a little something like this:
Cohen called it the biggest scoop in the nine-year history of the show. Clarkson was worried that Timberlake’s mom would kill her.
It wasn’t enough for Timberlake to be a talented musician and semi-talented actor. Dude just had to have a big dick as well. Leave a little something for the rest of us, ok Justin?
Somewhere, J.C. Chasez is crying even more than usual.

Prince would’ve been 60 today. Unfortunately, he’s forever 57. Which is a really odd number. Die at 60, it’s a much better looking number.
Anyway, Variety talked to a bunch of people who knew Prince to get some of their stories about him. Former Universal publishing exec Rebekah Alperin told a story about Prince’s indignity at sharing a bathroom with Justin Timberlake. It happened at the 2004 Grammys.
We were backstage at rehearsal the day before he played the  Grammys with Beyonce, and there were so many acts rehearsing that they had to share space. He suddenly came out of his dressing room and he looked straight at me and said in that low voice, “I’m sharing… a bathroom… with Justin Timberlake.” Nothing against Justin, of course, I just don’t think Prince was expecting to be sharing a bathroom.
Very different reaction from Timberlake. His reaction was “I’M SHARING A BATHROOM WITH PRINCE!!!” in a high-pitched squeal. Followed by a lot of hand clapping a la Brendan Fraser.
These two had a beef that was pretty mild, but it existed nonetheless. Evidently, Prince got miffed at Timberlake’s song, “SexyBack,” and harrumphed at an Emmys party: “For whoever is claiming that they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!”
That’s when Timberlake shot back at him in his song “Give It To Me.”
We missed you on the charts last week
Damn, that’s right you wasn’t there
Now if sexy never left, then why is everybody on my sh*t
Don’t hate on me just because you didn’t come up with it.
Now, Prince is dead and Timberlake is balding. Soo, I’m not sure who got the last laugh.
Let’s end on a good note, Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel.
Her caption should be: “Waiting for a job offer…”

Justin Timberlake performed a medley of his most beloved hits at halftime of Super Bowl 52.
Did you catch the dance-filled act?
Relive it HERE if not.
The 13-plus minute performance featured Timberlake belting out such hits as "Can't Stop This Feeling" and "Gone," but the focus a day later is on the minute or two during which he sat at a piano and played a cover of Prince's "I Would Die 4 U."
What a nice tribute to the late musician, who made his home in the Super Bowl host city of Minnesota, right?
WRONG, many Prince fans are now saying. So very, very, very, VERY wrong.
Scroll down and all around to find out why:
1. May He Rest in Peace
2. NO HOLOGRAM, JT!
3. Easy, Folks
4. Okay, Phew
5. And She Was Sort of Right
6. Did This Count as a Hologram?
Justin Timberlake rocked our bodies, cried us a river and made sure the feelings didn't stop at halftime of Super Bowl 52.
The beloved pop star was the featured act at the mid-point of the game between the Patriots and Eagles on Sunday night, as he was introduced by good friend Jimmy Fallon and started his act underneath the field.
"Haters gonna say it's fake," he then said many times, starting his performance with a brief rendition of "Filthy."
From there, Timberlake danced his way on to the field, rocking a red handkerchief around his neck that became the talk of Twitter.
He sang "Rock Your Body." He broke into "SexyBack." He sampled "Gone." He played all the hits, basically.
Then, at one point, he sat at a piano and covered Prince, who tragically passed away last year from a drug overdose and who made his home in Minnesota.
(The Super Bowl was played in Minnesota, it's worth noting.)
"Minneapolis, this one's for you," he said, prior to a few images of Prince being projected on a giant screen.
Impressively, lights across Minnesota then lit up in Prince's trademark color of purple. It was pretty cool.
The performance culminated in a rendition of "Rock Your Body," which found Timberlake jumping into the crowd and telling a young fan to snap a selfie of him and the superstar.
Overall, there was a whole lot of dancing, which is what Timberlake does as well as anyone, of course.
The sound was off nearly throughout the entire act, but it's possible this was even done on purpose... lest millions of viewers hear Timberlake wheezing for 20 minutes after essentially running a 5K or so.
There was no Janet Jackson, as had been rumored.
Much to the chagrin of NSync fans everywhere, Timberlake’s halftime show did not include a reunion with his former bandmates, either.
We didn't see Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass or JC Chasez.
How did JT stack up against Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and past halftime acts?
Give him a grade below:
And then watch highlights from the performance here:
Justin Timberlake, who recently starred in Woody Allen’s movie Wonder Wheel, was trying to be sort of funny on Twitter by asking for an explanation for the age old saying, “Having your cake and eating it too.”
Random question: Can someone please explain the saying, “You just want your cake and to eat it too.”
What else am I about to do with a cake??
— Justin Timberlake (@jtimberlake) January 23, 2018
Turns out killjoy Dylan Farrow came in with a real explanation.
The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time. You can’t retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. – retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. – eating the cake).
— Dylan Farrow (@RealDylanFarrow) January 23, 2018
Understandable considering she alleges she was molested by Woody Allen when she was a kid and Justin Timberlake wore a “Time’s Up” pin at the Golden Globes after working with Allen.
There’s really nothing Timberlake can say so he just ignored it and replied to someone else’s explanation.
— Justin Timberlake (@jtimberlake) January 23, 2018
Asked for comment, Timberlake said, “Dylan who? What’s Twitter? Where am I?!,” and then quickly ran off.
NEW JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ALERT!
In order to capitalize on his upcoming Super Bowl performance, Justin Timberlake is blessing us with a new album just two days before the big game. The first single is scheduled to drop this Friday.
— Justin Timberlake (@jtimberlake) January 2, 2018
Timberlake says this album, titled “Man of the Woods,” was inspired by his wife, son, and family. As opposed to all those other albums, which were inspired by wanting to be better than JC Chasez. He says this album is his most personal album yet, proving that every other album was created by an imaginary Justin Timberlake.
Based on the one minute teaser above, this totally looks like the musical version of The Revenant. If Timberlake isn’t eaten by a bear midway through the album, I’m going to be very disappointed by his effort.
As you can see in the video, Timberlake is working with Pharrell on the album. That automatically means it’s going to be a great album because Pharrell can do no wrong.
Max Martin, Shellback, and Timbaland are also collaborators on the album.
Timberlake hasn’t released an album since 2013 when he dropped The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – Part 2. His last single was “Can’t Stop The Feeling” off the Trolls soundtrack. That song continues to play to this day. Hopefully this new album means radio stations will stop infecting my ears with it. At some point, the feeling must stop.
The album will be released on February 2nd. Timberlake takes the Super Bowl stage on February 4th. That means you’ll have two days to learn all the words on the album, just in case he doesn’t perform a medley of hits and decides to perform track eight off this new album.
We’re two days into 2018 and Justin Timberlake has already stolen the year. Your move, JC.
Not every child star goes off the rails.
Sure, we know the stories of Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan, and even Miley Cyrus has certainly turned some heads at times.
But many child stars manage to maintain solid careers, become role models, and do some great work for charity.
Here are a few who turned out to be pretty respectable - and pretty normal.
1. Daniel Radcliffe
2. Mayim Bialik
3. Anna Chlumsky

While having an appearance on Sunday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Jenna Dewan Tatum cleared up a few things about her relationship with Justin Timberlake, after Lifetime’s terrible biopic on Britney Spears made things a little weird.
From The Huffington Post:
“We were, like, friends that then dated and we’re just really good friends now.”
Sounds pretty boring.
“We’re still good friends. It’s not as salacious as everyone thinks.”
If you missed out on that Lifetime biopic because you aren’t a middle-aged woman, it included Britney Spears and Justin having a pre-breakup dance-off.
Yeah. People actually were citing that like it was real. I can’t believe Jenna Dewan Tatum even had to spell out how full of shit that is.
“Okay, so this dance-off situation is … it never happened, people!” the actress told a viewer who phoned in to ask about the rumored incident. “It was in tabloids and everyone thought that this happened. And I really wish I could say that that happened because that would be the coolest story in the world. It would be so awesome. I wish I could say that, but no, it never happened.”
We've got some!
And to show it, the Memphis-repping singer took time out of his schedule Friday to pen a touching love letter for the actress' 35th birthday.
Ch-ch-check out the sweet message he shared via Instagram (below)!
You make me laugh. You make me smile. You make me LOVE. You make me want to be BETTER. Speaking of, it doesn't get any BETTER than you... Now, I know for sure that it's BETTER to be lucky than good. Ask me who the luckiest guy in the world is and I will tell you that you are looking at him. Happy Birthday, my heart. --JA post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on Mar 3, 2017 at 4:21pm PST
Please stay together forever, guys. Hollywood needs it!
No pressure or anything...

A lot of people hate kids because they make desperate grabs for attention when adults around them are trying to get shit done. All you wanted was to get directions from your friend, but can barely hear them over their kid doing their best impression of the end of the fucking world.
Multiply that by 10 and you have Justin Timberlake at the Oscars, a grown ass man who should really know better than to photobomb anyone within walking distance and fucking pop and lock it down the red carpet like a teenager loitering in front of a grocery store next to a boom box in 1989.
He inserted himself into Emma Stone‘s red carpet interview, and it’s honestly kind of painful to watch.
He then spent most of the night dragging his poor wife, Jessica Biel, around and weirdly trying to block her dress from view so it wouldn’t upstage him.
Bitch looked like a rusty Oscar with the hairstyle of a bottle of Mrs. Butterworth’s maple syrup. Pls.
He even made a show of trying to get on camera with Meryl Streep, who looks like she would straight up tell him to go pop and lock his way up his own asshole if she wasn’t such a classy bitch.

It was a delight watching Justin bop around in his Hitler Youth haircut. He must have interrupted his wife fifty times to make sure everyone knew he was singing the goddamn song from Trolls. And that we all had to see it.
Justin Timberlake Credits Son Silas for Hit ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’: Fatherhood ‘Changes Everything’
The Today Show
“It changes everything. I would have never written a song like ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling,’ ” he told Today‘s Willie Geist on Tuesday of being a father to Silas Randall.
Adds the actor and singer, 35, “I don’t know that it was directly inspired to be something that my son could listen to of mine — because there’s a lot of music he can’t listen to of mine, at least not yet.”

“You literally just like wake up and look in the mirror and go, ‘I have no idea what I’m doing,’ ” he says with a laugh, adding that he has a new appreciation for his son and Biel, 34. “It’s humiliating and it’s humbling at the same time.”
The singer is keeping busy with a Netflix concert film documentary, Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids, the lead voice role in the movie Trolls and a new album, his first since 2013’s The 20/20 Experience – Part 2 of 2.
“You watch her realize she has a gear she didn’t have, and then you go, ‘Whoa,’ ” he says.

It’s no surprise that Jessica Biel‘s household is full of laughs.
In an interview with Today held at her new restaurant Au Fudge during a Mother’s Day event with Tiny Prints and nonprofit organization Baby2Baby, Biel, 34, dished on exactly how her son Silas Randall, 13 months, is just like daddy Justin Timberlake.
“He is a ham, just like his dad — serious ham. He thinks everything is funny,” she says of Silas. “He thinks sneezing is really funny. He’s in that moment where he thinks bodily functions are really funny.”
Biel’s husband of 3½ years might have made his big break with a (still-hot) music career, but he has flexed his acting muscles quite a bit too — including with multiple hilarious stints on Saturday Night Live and appearances on The Tonight Show, hosted by BFF Jimmy Fallon.

About motherhood, Biel also told TODAY that she cherishes the simple moments she shares with Silas the most — kid-friendly yard work and play — and definitely feels the “invisible umbilical cord” now that she’s a mom.
“You’re still connected to that same person, even though you’re not in the same body anymore,” she says. “And that does not go away.”
And his humor isn’t the only way little Silas resembles Timberlake, 35.
“They’re like the same person,” Biel told PEOPLE last month during the Tiffany & Co. 2016 Blue Book dinner. “They like to sit and watch golf together. They just sit there on the couch staring at it. And they don’t communicate anymore. When golf is on, all the communication ends.”

“It was just a small family hang at the house,” Biel told PEOPLE at the Tiffany & Co. 2016 Blue Book dinner at The Cunard building in New York City on Friday. A-listers Reese Witherspoon (wearing a $10 million diamond necklace), Diane Kruger and Naomi Watts were also in the house for the starry (and sparkly) event.
Biel noted that she baked little Silas’s birthday cake herself. “It was a lemon pound cake, almost,” she said. “But it had zucchini in there.”
And what is the cutest thing that Silas and Justin do together?
“They’re like the same person,” said Biel, who was wearing a white dress by The Row and a $1.5 million Tiffany diamond bib necklace with over 2,500 individually set diamonds and a $300,000 Tiffany Blue Book diamond bracelet. “It’s like a mini version of him … They like to sit and watch golf together. The only TV that Silas is allowed to watch is the Golf Channel, which is really funny.
“They just sit there on the couch staring at it,” said Biel. “And they don’t communicate anymore. When golf is on, all the communication ends.”
Jessica Biel wants to eliminate the stress that comes with dining out for new parents — a feeling she’s all too familiar with.
“Since he’s so little still and I’m still kind of learning how I do it in a very smooth and like elegant way, it’s terrifying,” said the new mom, who shares Silas with husband Justin Timberlake.
She continued, “You get to a place, you want to make sure the diners around you are not being bothered, you’re full of anxiety, you’re trying to go as fast as you can — you don’t enjoy it at all.”
That’s why when it came to her own eatery, Biel said she wanted to “erase” those feelings from “a mom, a dad, a family, a nanny, grandparents bringing their grandkids here.”
The West Hollywood restaurant, which opens Thursday, has a dedicated space for its youngest diners and on-site au pairs.
“We just want you to feel stress-free about it and know that they’re playing with things that are safe, that we don’t use chemicals here, that there’s not just a bunch of plastic everywhere and we’ve really tried to think very thoughtfully about your family because it’s our family, too,” Biel said.
Biel previously told PEOPLE that she wanted “to have a place where I want to bring my kids, or I want to bring my girlfriends.”
She shared a similar sentiment with Extra‘s Terri Seymour, saying, “I think it really was my friends who had kids they couldn’t go anywhere that they loved. It was either the kids were happy or they were happy and I couldn’t really join them anywhere because they were at a ball pit or they were at a place that the food options were pizza or fries and that was sort of it, so that’s where the idea came from.”
“We all started talking about it and it was clear, this was what was missing,” Biel explained.
Her own experiences with Silas — who she said is “doing great” — have also colored the sort of foods she included on the Au Fudge menu.
The actress told PEOPLE last fall, “I have some good ideas about the foods that I want to put in my body and my family’s body. The menu is not just kiddie food!”

Sign of a country crossover move soon, perhaps?
The 2015 CMAs got a bit of a kick when Justin Timberlake joined “Best New Artist” awardee Chris Stapleton for an electric duet of “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away!”
Many stars expressed their love for the said number, which earned more than just standing ovations and smartphones in the air:
Meanwhile, his wife Jessica Biel was there to cheer him from the side, tweeting a picture of them together captioned “Date Night!”
As for the after-party, it’s not hard to guess what will happen. Go, JB!
“He’s wonderful,” the actress said of Silas, who will be 6 months old next week, during a Friday appearance on NBC’s Today. “He’s just a joy. It’s an amazing, amazing experience. Incredibly hard — the hardest job in the world, and I’ve never been more thankful and grateful to my own mother.”
“Oh my gosh, I just … I’m gonna call her right after this, actually, and just thank her,” Biel said of her mother, “because what you have to do for your kid — it’s an amazing responsibility and the biggest joy ever.”
“He is doing it all,” she said when asked if the pop crooner is ever on diaper duty. “He is in there; he’s in there deep.”

Biel, who’s starring in a series of online sex education videos in partnership with WomanCare Global, said she opted to get involved after realizing she was fairly clueless when it came to her own body.
“This was really personal for me,” Biel said on Today. “A couple of years ago, when I was thinking about starting a family, I started to realize, ‘Okay, well now you have to get off birth control and what happens? How exactly is it gonna go?’ I started to realize I had absolutely no idea what my cycle looked like.”

It was an emotional and funny night of firsts at the 2015 Emmy Awards, and it also took place on one of the hottest days in California. With temps on the red carpet rising to 99 degrees, and Jon Hamm in line for his last shot at an Emmy for his work on Mad Men, it was a night of excellent TV that celebrated excellent TV. Check out the highlights.
1. Andy Samberg’s opening number
Satirizing the fact that there are just too many TV shows these days to watch, Samberg began his hosting gig by descending into a bunker a la Kimmy Schmidt to watch weeks-worth of television. Emerging with a full beard, Samberg launched into a Les Miserables-inspired musical number, and disappointed us all by commenting that he and Justin Timberlake famous skit, “Dick In A Box” was not a possibility for this evening.
2. Jon Hamm finally won for Mad Men

This was Jon Hamm’s last chance to take home an Emmy for his work on Mad Men, as the show debuted its final season this year. Hamm won the award for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for portraying Don Draper, a category and role for which he was nominated many, many times. He gave a heartfelt acceptance speech about not deserving the award:
There’s been a mistake, clearly. It’s impossible to be named with all of those extraordinary gentlemen. It’s impossible to have done this show with this incredible cast, these incredible people, our incredible writers, our incredible crew. And it’s incredible and impossible for me, personally, to be standing up here.
Oh, and he also crawled up the stage in typical goofy Jon Hamm fashion.
3. Julia Louis-Dreyfus satirizes Donald Trump [and her own character on Veep]
Louis-Dreyfus quoted her Veep character, saying, “What a great honor it must be for you to honor me tonight.” She then added that Donald Trump actually said that before continuing, “It’s getting trickier and trickier to satirize this stuff.”
4. Modern Family didn’t win for Comedy Series
Modern Family broke their winning streak, instead handing off the torch to Veep.
5. Viola Davis won Outstanding Actress In A Drama Series
The star of How to Get Away with Murder became the first African-American to win this award, and she accepted her award by quoting Harriet Tubman:
In my dreams and visions, I seemed to see a line, and on the other side of that line were green fields, and lovely flowers, and beautiful white ladies, who stretched out their arms to me over the line, but I couldn’t reach them no-how.
Let me tell you something: the only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.
6. Andy Samberg’s jokes were pretty funny
Following earlier advice during the opening musical number to not be too “edgy,” Samberg kept the political jokes to a lighthearted minimum. He quipped at one point, “his is the [...]

Bass — now officially a member of The Meredith Vieira Show — bumped into Timberlake at the NBC studios on Wednesday while the latter was there to appear on The Tonight Show.
Bass, 36, later told Vieira it was the first time he’d seen Timberlake, 34, since JT’s son with Jessica Biel, Silas Randall, was born in April.

“It’s been five months, and it’s so amazing to see a friend go through this, because, you know, I grew up with him since he was 14 years old,” Bass said. “But to see this amazing dad now and all he wants to talk about is the kid.”
Timberlake has “completely changed,” Bass continued, adding, “You have to. I mean, I can’t wait to be a dad myself just because I would love to know what the selflessness feels like.”

The “Tunnel Vision” singer has been busy doting on his new mini me — just look at the adorable photos he shared this week and that cute Father’s Day Instagram — but fatherhood isn’t stopping Timberlake’s signature antics with his buddy Fallon. On Wednesday, the guys proved they can still dance like Beyoncé when they busted out their “Single Ladies” moves at the U.S. Open.

Baby Silas is shown in two separate photos — in the first shot with Timberlake, the baby boy (who has his proud papa’s eyes) smiles straight into the camera as his dad holds him up.
The second, presumably taken right after bath time, shows the new mom kissing Silas on the cheek as he is draped in an elephant bath towel.
The new pictures offered a rare glimpse of the couple’s first son. Since his birth in April, the new parents have only shared a couple of photos on social media of their bundle of joy.
The first came when he was just a few weeks old and wore a Memphis Grizzlies shirt, the second came on Father’s Day, when the little man was photographed in a coverall embroidered with the words “I love Dad” while snuggling up to Timberlake.

During her 1989 world tour, Taylor Swift is playing for thousands of people every night. She’s far and away from the intimate venues she first started out performing in. Of the challenge of connecting with her fans on this tour she told Time magazine, “the challenge with a stadium show is making those people in the very top row feel like they got an intimate, personal experience of me bitching about men.”
And while Taylor Swift does her fair share of “bitching about men,” she also surprises the audience with a few of her best friends, who of course also happen to be celebrities — that just happen to sing. It seems like at every major stop Swift is bringing someone new on stage with her that has her fans completely freaking out. It’s become such a “thing” in Swift’s fandom that it’s now a running joke.
When you have a fan’s parody video, which went viral, introducing everyone from Hillary Swank to the Blair Witch, you know you’ve made some kind of impact with your tour. Almost all of her guests have made headlines thanks to social media.
In case you missed it we decided to compile a top 10 list of the best guests that appeared on Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour..so far.
1. Selena Gomez & Justin Timberlake

It wouldn’t be a show without Taylor’s good friend Selena Gomez. The two are usually seen dancing it up together at every award show possible, so it was only a matter of time before the pop singer made an appearance on the 1989 world tour. She joined Swift on stage in the Staples Center stop on August 26 in Los Angeles.
These two are so close that Swift even gives Gomez dating advice. While on The Talk, Gomez divulged on her friendship with Swift, “She just kind of looked at me and was like, ‘Selena, if you’re the smartest person in the room, I think you’re going to be in the wrong room.’ She thinks I should constantly surround myself with people who are going to make me better — that are going to challenge and motivate me.”
During this show she also brought out on stage Justin Timberlake. The two sang his popular song “Mirrors.”
2. John Legend
During her Los Angeles show on August 25th, Swift pulled out John Legend, complete with a piano, to sing his hit song “All of Me.” Swift documented the moment on her Instagram, captioning the moment with, “ALL OF ME. JOHN LEGEND. ALL THE FEELS.”
3. Alanis Morissette
