Jeanette Walls of MSNBC reports that with news of *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake collaborating with Mariah Carey on the romantic duet ‘Yours’, there is already talk that the two are an item. “Sure, she’s a little older, but he was also [romantically linked] to Janet Jackson,” who is 36, points out one source. Timberlake’s spokesman says the two are not romantically involved “as far as I know.” Carey’s rep says they are not romantically involved.
Timberlake Wins Over The British Public
October 15, 2002 – Contributed by saturn: Heat, the UK’s ‘Magazine of the Year’ reports, “As a rule, we’re a bit skeptical about American Celebrities. On TV they mostly come across as tedious and bland. So imagine our surprise when we saw Justin Timberlake’s brilliant appearance on Johnny Vaughn Tonight. In the past we dismissed Justin as just another generic boy bander or Mr. Britney Spears – but now we’re ready to hail him as King of Celebville. He’s about to release a brilliant debut solo single and he was bright, funny, and sarcastic with Mr. Vaughn.”
The article then goes on to say that the *NSYNC star had to pick which dessert baked by 3 different grannies he liked the best. He tried Clootie Dumpling (traditional Scottish dessert), Spotted Dick (yes, that’s actually what it’s called), and Queen of Puddings. The granddaughter of the granny who had the best dessert then got to meet Justin. Heat closes the article with, “Justin, we like your style – and you can take a bite of our hot pudding any day.”
