JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ANNOUNCES ‘MAN OF THE WOODS’ TOUR – (01/09/2018)

Justin Timberlake has announced a new 27-date North American tour in support of his upcoming fifth studio album, Man of the Woods. The tour begins March 13th in Toronto before wrapping up May 30th in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. Other stops include New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami and Dallas. Tickets go on sale for the general public starting January 16th through Ticketmaster. A pre-sale for members of The Tennessee Kids Fan Club and American Express cardholders will begin Wednesday.

The Man of the Woods album is expected to release on February 2nd, two days before Justin is set to perform during the halftime show of Super Bowl LII. Timberlake released the first single from the new album titled “Filthy” on Friday alongside an accompanying music video.

“The outdoors is the inspiration for a lot of these songs. That’s the main idea. The tour will be able to bring the outside in,” Timberlake says in a teaser video for the tour. “How can we bring that to life? I want people to see the inspiration for how it ended up sounding. I’ve never seen that done before – bring the outside in.”

Meanwhile, if you’ve ever wanted to have a beer with Timberlake, he’s offering fans the chance to do the next best thing on his upcoming tour. Among the VIP packages JT is offering on his tour is the “Stage Bar” VIP Experience. This allows you to watch the show from your very own bar stool, “right up against center stage.” You’ll also get a drink ticket to redeem at the bar, as well as a bunch of other goodies: access to a pre-show lounge, posters and prints, a special VIP gift, a laminate and priority entry into the venue. Availability is “extremely limited.” You also need to be of legal drinking age to redeem that drink ticket. Ticket prices for the VIP experiences will be announced Wednesday.

MARIAH CAREY STOLE MERYL STREEP’S SEAT AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES – (01/09/2018)

Mariah Carey is making 2018 a year to remember. Shortly after kicking off the New Year with a performance from Times Square in New York City, the singer attended the 75th Annual Golden Globes as a first-time nominee.

While Carey didn’t go home with an award for her song “The Star” from the movie of the same name, she left with a story she’s never forget: she stole Meryl Streep’s seat.

Carey was delayed by a trip to the bathroom during a commercial break and grabbed the first seat she saw when she returned. Unfortunately for the singer, the seat happened to be reserved for a very famous actress.

“Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break,” she tweeted. “Took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg. Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat…”

The pop diva profusely apologized to the legendary actress: “Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!! You can take my seat any time!”

Carey also praised Oprah and congratulated the Best Original Song winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul for writing “This is Me” for The Greatest Showman.

The tracklist for the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack has arrived. Sia, Julia Michaels, Bishop Briggs, Dua Lipa and Hailee Steinfeld are just some of the artists who will join Liam Payne and Rita Ora on the soundtrack for the highly anticipated third movie in the Fifty Shades series.

Actor Jamie Dornan, who plays Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades movies, will also contribute to the soundtrack with his take on Paul McCartney’s 1970 hit, “Maybe I’m Amazed.”

Director James Foley told the Daily Mirror in an interview last year that vocals from Dornan were coming, saying, “He is an incredibly good singer – he sang a lot on set. He sings in [movie] 3, but it’s a surprise.”

The Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack will be released February 9th.
