With sunshine in his pocket, Justin Timberlake made dreams come true for one deserving group of children. On Friday afternoon, the superstar musician took a break from his “Man of the Woods” tour to visit a lovable group of cancer patients, nurses and families at the Methodist Children’s Hospital in San Antonio, Texas.
Earlier this week, Timberlake fans at the hospital posted a video dancing to his song “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” campaigning for the star to come see them ahead of his Saturday concert at the AT&T Center. Unbeknownst to the spirited young patients, Timberlake caught wind of the now viral video online and stopped by around 3 p.m.
According to Annabella Lugosi, a mother who’s been taking 4-year-old son Jackson to the Methodist hospital for cancer treatment since he was 3 months old, the singer “took time with each individual child in his or her own room.”
“He was so humble, and you could really tell that this wasn’t for publicity or anything like that,” Lugosi told TODAY. “He genuinely wanted to be a bright spot in these kids’ lives for a day.”

In October when Justin cancelled his Madison square garden show, fans thought it was just a security measure due to activity going on in Manhattan that day, little did they know it was actually something that would not only effect that night’s show. One by one each show that followed was postponed as well, and the only thing that had been official mentioned to fans was that his doctors put him on a silent break, no stain to the vocal chords for the time being.
now it’s December…. and while most fans pretty much knew he wouldn’t be back on stage just yet, some were hopeful that the money they spent on travel would not go to waste.
Today Justin broke his silence, …. and typed a message to the fans on IG informing them that the man of the woods tour is over for the rest of the year due to his condition.
Tour is officially called off for the rest of 2018
While searching for some old Nsync photo sessions (which I still haven’t found) I came across a funny blog post so I decided to share!
This blogger remade Justin’s man of the woods promotional photo shoot using the Justin marionette, and it’s quite adorable.

Donald Glover may be hanging up the Childish Gambino personality soon, but if the recent report from HITS Daily Double turns out to be true, Gambino will be going out with a bang as next year’s Coachella headliner alongside Justin Timberlake and Kanye West. The music industry trade publication is usually unable to reveal its sources, but has generally turned out to be very reliable as a source of impending or unconfirmed music news.
According to the report, Glover will close the show on Friday, with Timberlake on Saturday, and Kanye on Sunday. While none of them are strictly considered to be as big as Beyonce or Eminem, this year’s headliners, all three of the proposed artists have had huge cultural moments during 2018, from Gambino’s “This Is America” video debuting during his well-received appearance on Saturday Night Live, to Justin Timberlake’s meme-generating Super Bowl Halftime performance and dance-pop return Man Of The Woods. Kanye West, of course, had his own SNL performance go viral, albeit for different reasons, and has promised a follow-up album to the much-hyped Ye and its accompanying releases from the rest of his GOOD Music label artists.
And while some may view these headliners as a step back after 2018’s lineup pretty prominently featured women as headliners — most notably, Beyonce, who stole the show with her “Beychella” stage — there is still plenty of time to build out the lineup around two of three huge legacy acts with more younger acts and women as well.

Memphis plans to start its basketball season on a high note in its first year under Penny Hardaway.
The university’s annual Memphis Madness event will be held on Oct. 4 at FedExForum, and plenty of popular artists are rumored to be in attendance. Justin Timberlake, Drake, Yo Gotti, Moneybagg Yo and Blocboy JB will reportedly be at the event, according to John Martin of 9.29 FM ESPN.
It would be no surprise to see Yo Gotti in attendance, considering he has performed at the event in years past. Yo Gotti even invited Hardaway on stage during his sixth annual birthday bash at FedExForum in June.
Timberlake, a Memphis native, will be performing at the FedExForum in January on his “Man of the Woods” tour.
Memphis Madness is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET.

“What. Why are you staring? I look perfectly normal… is there someone behind me?!”
When Justin Timberlake began recording his fifth solo studio album “Man of the Woods,” he already had a special themed Air Jordan in mind. Following the popularity of the “Legends of the Summer” PE collection in 2013, Timberlake was ready to take it up a notch and design a colorway that would bring his album to life on his feet.
As soon as the heartfelt tribute to his wife “Higher Higher” was created, Timberlake was already thinking of how to combine the ideas “Higher” and “Air.” “When we had the idea to make a product for every song, we knew making an Air Jordan would have to be what we did for ‘Higher Higher,’” says Timberlake. The answer was an Air Jordan III, one of Timberlake’s all-time favorite sneakers.
Beyond being a touching love letter to his wife, “Higher Higher” also includes a universal message that Timberlake wants everyone to understand: “It’s really about the idea that no matter what we have in life, our relationships are the most important thing. Money, fame, success are all fleeting, whereas a real relationship will last for the long haul.”
Another relationship Timberlake holds close is the one he has with Jordan Brand. This close bond is what led to a conversation with legendary designer Tinker Hatfield. While Timberlake had already started concepting how to bring the project to life, Tinker had something else up his sleeve: the original AJIII sketch. The first version of this meeting of the minds debuted in front of millions during Timberlake’s half time performance at the big game last February. The “Two Minute Warning” AJIII JTH sold out instantly, leaving everyone wanting more from the man of the woods
The “Air Higher” colorway delivers that by swapping out original materials to translate the theme of the album onto the iconic silhouette. “The album’s premise was really about making things in a handmade and artisanal way,” says Timberlake. “The same way the album is filled with live instrumentation, we wanted the shoe to have the same feeling of being premium and made by hand.”
