How timely it is. Justin Timberlake performed his billboard hit song “Sexyback” at the recently held Victoria’s Secret fashion show. The catwalk was a shimmering silver and SEXY spelled out in gold letters at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, the singer eyed celebrity supermodel Gisele Bundchen as she strolled down the catwalk wearing a lace push up bra, panties and lots of feathers.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is an annual event that is normally held in New York. In 2004 however, the show was cancelled following the outrage over the wardrobe malfunction at the Superbowl that year (called nipplegate by most) which Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson were involved in.? So yes, Justin Timberlake is helping bring sexy back.
Speaking of Janet Jackson, many listeners are wondering if Justin Timberlake new song “Give It To Me” is a dig at the female singer. The song is a collaboration with Nelly Furtado and producer Timbaland. It has some pretty pointed lyrics:
Could you speak up and stop mumbling?
I don’t think you came in clear
When you’re sitting on the top
it’s hard to hear you from way up there
I saw you tryin’ to act cute on TV
Just let me clear the air
We missed you on the charts last week
(Bleep) that’s right, you wasn’t there.
This is most likely in direct response to Jackson’s interview with Oprah last September. She discussed the incident at the 2004 Superbowl and pretty much said it wasn’t her fault that the accident happened (without of course stating thet it was anyone else’s fault).
Other than that though, Justin Timberlake is riding high these days. His song “Sexyback” is still in the top ten, holding tightly to the number ten spot . At the same time, his song “My Love” featuring T.I. is the current number one hit. Welcome back indeed Justin!
