Page 3 Profile: Justin Timberlake, Pop singer
Tuesday 30 October 2012
So the Trousersnake finally tied the knot?
Indeed. In true superstar style, JT wed actor Jessica Biel in Puglia, Italy, in a lavish ceremony that reportedly took a year to plan and cost $6.5m. In what we can only assume was the highlight, he serenaded his bride with a song so beautiful it reduced grown men to tears.
Wow. I wish I could have made it along to that one…
So did some of Hollywood's homeless, according to a video recorded by friends of the singer, 31. In the spoof tape, "Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn't make it", a toothless, elderly man mutters: "Justin, I haven't seen you in a long time. My gift is in the mail." Another, shirtless contributor says: "It's me, Herbert!"
That's pretty offensive.
It has certainly tainted the couple's big day. Timberlake made a formal apology on his pals' behalf, saying: "My friends are good people. This was clearly a lapse in judgment … But I don't believe it was made to be insensitive."
Did Timberlake get in trouble over the tape?
According to the singer, it was shot as a "private joke to be exhibited privately at the wedding". Regardless, he has opted to share out the punishment, saying he will get the film-makers to perform 100 hours of community service.
