Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott, Alex Lacamoire to receive honorary degrees from Berklee

Berklee College of Music will award degrees to some pretty big names in music this spring.

Grammy Award-winning artists Justin Timberlake and Missy Elliott will receive honorary degrees at the college’s commencement ceremony on May 11 at Agganis Arena, as will Grammy- and Tony Award-winning Berklee alum Alex Lacamoire. The orchestrator is known for his work on Broadway shows such as “Hamilton,” “In the Heights,” and “Dear Evan Hansen.”

“This year’s honorary doctorate recipients are being recognized for their achievements and influences in music, and for their enduring global impact,” the college wrote in a press release.

On May 10 students will pay tribute to the honorary degree recipients by performing music associated with their careers, also at Agganis Arena. Both the concert and commencement will be closed to the public.

Berklee awarded its first honorary degree in 1971 to jazz legend Duke Ellington. Other past recipients include Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, B.B. King, Smokey Robinson, Carole King, Willie Nelson, and former Berklee students Quincy Jones and Esperanza Spalding.

Bai lawsuit dismissed

(Whoops I must have missed the initial statements as I wasn’t even aware this was a thing 🤷‍♀️)

Justin Timberlake has scored a big win in the lawsuit accusing him of deceiving customers who bought the beverages he hawks after a judge dropped him from the case.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a federal court judge has dismissed all claims against Timberlake in the class action lawsuit filed over the ingredients in Bai Brands Beverages, which JT has endorsed

The judge ordered that the claims against Timberlake were filed in the wrong court and, as a result, the singer will be dismissed.

As The Blast first reported, Timberlake was sued as part of a class action lawsuit that alleged Bai was deceiving consumers with false and misleading labeling, saying they contain only natural ingredients and are flavored only with natural ingredients when they actually contain undisclosed artificial flavors in violation of state and federal law.

Justin Timberlake was dragged in for being the celebrity spokesperson and starring in their 2017 Super Bowl advertisement.

The singer denied all allegations of wrongdoingand sought for the case to be dismissed, arguing he didn’t know what is in the beverages he hawks.

The singer claimed there is no evidence he had a role in the design, manufacturing or distribution of the Bai drinks.

The court docs noted that despite the fact JT was given a promotional title of “Chief Flavor Officer,” it did not mean he actually was an agent of Bai.
