Justin Timberlake Teases Super Bowl Set In Behind-The-Scenes Video, Releases 'Supplies' Video

Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime show is one of 2018’s most anticipated musical events and, in collaboration with show sponsor Pepsi, Timberlake has made a video teaser that provides a taste of what his set will include.

The clip opens with career footage of Justin performing hits like "Sexyback" and "Cry Me A River." Then we see Timberlake exiting a black SUV at a performance or rehearsal venue. He describes how high the stakes are when millions of people are watching.

"I am getting an opportunity to have the stage to myself. I believe it’s also the place where there’s nothing wrong with giving people what they want," he says. During the preview, Justin is seen circling up with his backup dancers, surveying the stage and carrying a guitar. "For 12 or 13 minutes, we’ll have a really good time," he says.

Super Bowl LII will air on February 4th from the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Meanwhile, fans may still be waiting on Timberlake to apologize to Janet Jackson after the uproar over their 2004 Super Bowl appearance, but he says it’s all good. He talked to Beats 1 radio about the aftermath of his Super Bowl halftime performance in which he accidentally exposed Jackson’s breast. The incident has become one of the sporting event’s biggest controversies and resulted in Jackson disappearing from the scene for a while after the negative publicity that followed.

When it was announced that Timberlake would be the performer for the upcoming 2018 Super Bowl, many on social media took him to task for seeming to abandon Jackson amid the scandal and not publicly apologizing. Timberlake told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe that naturally the incident came up during discussions about him returning to the Super Bowl.

"To be honest, there wasn’t too much of a conversation, just one of those things where we go, ‘We’re not gonna ...,’" he said. "What do you want me to say, like, ‘We’re not gonna do that again?’"

The singer said he "stumbled through it" the first time at the Super Bowl. "You know, to be quite honest, I had my wires crossed," he said. "And it’s something that you have to look back on and go, like, ‘OK, well, you know, you can’t change what’s happened, but, you know, you can move forward and learn from it.’"

He answered "Absolutely" when asked if he and Jackson were afterward able to "kind of resolve the situation, like, were able to make peace of the whole thing?"

"Yeah, and I don’t know that a lot of people know that," Timberlake said. "I mean, I don’t think it’s my job to do that, because you value the relationships that you do have with people."

In other news, Timberlake has released his new single "Supplies" and its accompanying video, which features an appearance by Pharrell Williams.

The track is the latest from Timberlake’s highly anticipated studio album Man of the Woods, due out on February 2nd.

In the futuristic video, Timberlake sits and stares at a wall of television monitors broadcasting news clips about racism, misogyny and violence. He wanders a street filled with costumed, white-painted people, alligators and a man with a necklace made of handguns. Timberlake accompanies these powerful images with a love story depicted by warm embraces, face-stroking, and circles of fire spinning around him and his lover.

Andy Grammer Takes Fans For A Ride In New 'Smoke Clears' Promo Video

Andy Grammer goes undercover as a ride share driver and helps some unsuspecting people learn how much they mean to their best friends in a new video promoting his single "Smoke Clears."

Andy explains, "My song ‘Smoke Clears’ is extremely autobiographical; it’s about me and my wife being there for each other through some of the toughest times...so this song is about riding the highs and lows with your ‘ride or die.’" He adds, "I’m gonna be picking up friends and we’re gonna get into a little conversation about what makes someone a ‘ride or die’."

A montage shows Andy picking up various people, who describe who their best friends are and what their "ride or die" qualities are. Then Andy picks up the friends.

The video was made in conjunction with SoulPancake, actor Rainn Wilson’s media and production company. Wilson appeared in the innovative video for Andy’s first hit, "Keep Your Head Up."

"Smoke Clears" is from Andy’s latest album The Good Parts.

Then, she went to the Downtown Women’s Shelter, where she handed out care packages to the residents.

The shelter is the only LA organization exclusively dedicated to addressing the needs of women, whose mission is to provide permanent supportive housing and a safe and healthy community fostering dignity, respect, personal stability and to advocate ending homelessness for women.

Ingrid Michaelson Making A 'Stranger Things'-Inspired Album

Ingrid Michaelson is so obsessed with the Netflix sci-fi drama Stranger Things that she’s recording a collection of tunes inspired by the show, called Stranger Songs.

"Finding your connection to another’s art isn’t something I’ve ever built a record on but I feel so inspired by the world Stranger Things has created," Ingrid says. "This show brings me back to a place of safety and comfort when everything seemed simple," she adds. "Especially after losing my parents, the idea of living in that space, even for an hour at a time, is not only intoxicating, it’s necessary."

She adds, "I started writing poems inspired by the show and I realized how connected I was to it and my childhood and to that innocence lost."

The new album will reportedly be released to coincide with Stranger Things’ season three premiere, which has yet to be announced. Season two of the hit Netflix show debuted in late October.

Ironically, Ingrid has a development deal with a Netflix competitor, Hulu, to write and star in a comedy series called The Way I Am, which is loosely based on her own life.

Michaelson made her film debut in the indie feature, Humor Me, which opened January 12th, in which she played a recovering drug addict opposite Jemaine Clement and Elliot Gould. Last summer, she made her Broadway debut in Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.

Michaelson has charted with both "The Way I Am" and "Girls Chase Boys."

Justin Bieber Reunites With His Mom Pattie Mallette On Vacation

Justin Bieber’s back on good terms with his mother, Pattie Mallette. Justin is spending time with his mom in the tropical Maldives, which is huge, considering they’ve been estranged for years.

"I’m so proud of the amazing young man you are, and the young man you are becoming. None of us are perfect and never will be, (so we will always need patience and grace for each other), but your genuine growing relationship with Jesus is evident in the choices you are making daily and the good ‘fruit’ you bear," she wrote.

"I admire your character and integrity. You are maturing beautifully and wise beyond your years. You are so funny that I find myself laughing out loud when I’m alone, remembering of something you said or did. And your heart is gold. I love you to the moon and back. #lovemom Ps. Did I mention I was proud of you?"

Katy Perry Says Social Media Is Responsible For 'The Decline Of Civilization'

Considering she’s the most popular person on Twitter, with 108 million followers and counting, it’s ironic that Katy Perry thinks social media is a bad thing. But as she tells Refinery29, she sort of wishes it didn’t exist.

"A lot of us are living for that picture, and then the currency is the ‘like,’" Katy explains. "It’s hard because I’d rather not care about that and just live my life. We buy clothing and products or pose a certain way or go to an event to get a picture – it’s not good for us as a society."

"I think it’s actually the decline of civilization if we’re going extreme about it," she adds. "We have to find a balance, and I’m trying to find my own personal balance with it because I’m just as much a victim as everybody else."

In fact, last month, Katy tweeted, "i can’t wait till instagram culture is over so we can all be ourselves again." Of course, that’s not keeping the singer from promoting her new line of CoverGirl lip gloss on Instagram.

"With all my collections, I always try and push the boundaries, to try new things," Katy said. "This one has all the colors you want, but I’ve also got a really interesting blue and a white that looks great on all skin tones...Trends change so fast, so it’s all about going out on a limb.

Meanwhile, Katy uploaded a video on herself flyboarding for a "#tbt" on Instagram yesterday. She thought she was looking pretty cool riding high over the ocean – until she landed right on top of a jellyfish.

"#tbt to when I thought I was winning 2018 and then fell into a jellyfish. kewl," she captioned the post. The next photo is the aftermath of her painful injury.

Selena Gomez Calls Out Nick Jonas For Double Date Gone Bad

Selena Gomez called out Nick Jonas for a date gone wrong many years ago. Nick was making an appearance on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show where he played a game of Heart Rate Monitor with host Nick Grimshaw.

Nick was hooked up to a heart rate monitor and special guests, including Selena, Joe Jonas, and more try to get his heart pounding.

"Hello Nicholas, it is Selena Gomez," Selena said in the video message to Nick. "So I know what you’re doing and I would like to remind you of a time where we all went to Central Park together, it was definitely over 10 years ago. I was wondering if that brought up anything for you, I know Central Park was really beautiful, it was actually my first time."

"So this was at a time when my brothers and I were a boy band and we were in Central Park and we were very private about our relationship. And she was unhappy that her Central Park experience was ruined by the fact that I walked about 20 feet away from her," Nick explained. "Even though they were taking pictures of us and obviously we were there together it was like, ‘It would be better if we stand about 25 feet apart.’ So it ruined her Central Park experience, so her and Taylor Swift, who was dating my brother Joe walked 25 feet behind us as we walked through the park by ourselves," he continued.

It definitely made Nick sweat; with the end of every sentence from Gomez, his heart rate visibly increased.
