Justin Timberlake's "Justin Timberlake & Friends" concert on Saturday was a culmination of a week's worth of events supporting Shriners Hospitals for Children. It was a busy week for the singer: He planned the concert, hosted a charity golf tournament and met all manner of kids. He said the latter is the most rewarding part, as he gets to hang out with them and "act a fool," as he called it.
So it's no doubt that Justin had a lot on his mind when he met us in the press room to talk about the concert. As he finished his last interview, he realized there was one important thing he forgot to talk about. "TLC! I forgot to mention TLC, that's huge!" He jokingly blamed it on us, "the media." Of course, it was a big deal that TLC were performing their first full-length live concert in six years.
Justin realized that none of the outlets had him saying it on camera, which meant it probably wouldn't make it into any of the press coverage. So here we are, Justin, letting everyone know that you didn't forget T-Boz and Chilli.
Later, the ladies told us just how excited they were to support the charity — and Justin. "We've known him for so long," they said, noting that his manly stubble made him look "grown-up."
