    Cool Justin Timberlake is writing more song with substance. He was a part of where is the love and now this. He must be happy to be a part of this project. I give Timberlake all the respect in the world. Haters you can hate on him all you want but his heart is in the right place. So go ahead and hate on him

    translation: Missy will write it, and Justin will put his name on it. and Timbaland will use one Aaliyah’s beats and try to pass it off as new. meanwhile, everyone will see it as just an attempt to counter Michael Jackson’s “What More Can I Give”

    His heart is in the write place? Yes, we see that by him writing songs for McDonald’s

    Haters what’s wrong with you people? Seriously, Justin can’t even do something charitable without you on his case. Anyway, that’s cool for him to do something like this. Justin has a big heart (even tho some people don’t want to admit that) I think this is gonna be a pretty cool song. Esp with Timbaland producing it

    I’m a big Timberland fan and I respect him and everything but he does have the habit of using the same beat. But I’m sure he will do a great job with this song. Timberland reuse the cry me a river beat on Bubba Sparxxx album but the song Timberland will produce for this project will be awesome.

    Kind of funny how people say Justin does stuff for charity…seems odd how he never seemed to do anything with his “Justin Timberlake Foundation”…all he did was get recognition from the president or whatever. Big f**king deal! What did he actually DO with his so-called charity foundation? At least the BSB put their foundations into action! Justin does stuff for charity? Yeah, and pigs can fly! *rolls eyes*

    Like I’ve said before, I think it is so great when celebrities come together and do things like this for charity. I can’t wait to hear the song. I bet its gonna be great.

    Actually Justin does a ton for Charity. Just because it isn’t highly publicized doesn’t mean it’s not there. He not only has personally paid for children’s heart transplants, he also goes to visit children’s hospitals in Europe and has for years since Nsync lived there back in 97 and if I remember correctly last Christmas he bought a ton from a toy store in Tennessee to give to the children in the children’s hospital. And then of course there is the Justin Timberlake Foundation, which is the only thing he talks about publicly in conjunction with Challenge for the Children as they need others to contribute. As far as I’m concerned it’s better when artists publicize their charity work, it’s saying look at me I’m an angel, be my fan. It’s self-serving and has an ulterior motive, so personally I’d rather Justin continue to do his personal charity work quietly instead of announcing it like a selfish git would do. Anyways, I’m really looking forward to this song, Tim is one of the only original producer’s in the mainstream at the moment and Missy & Justin make a good team.

    HIV is a disease that is still incurable today. We should always practice safe sex and also educate our people how to avoid the spread of this disease.
