Justin and his fedora headed to Southern Hospitality to wind down after his performance at MSG last night. We bet that his grandmother's pecan pie makes for a yummy late night snack. Lately Justin's been super busy with his new restaurant when he isn't on stage, but somehow new collaborations with other artists just keep emerging as if from nowhere. The latest is "Nature" with Talib Kweli, which you can listen to here. He may not be the most modest of men, but it can't be denied that JT definitely works his butt off.
Just as I expected, Biel scurried in after her movie premiere to catch the tail end of Justin's restaurant opening party. The two were seen ducking out of Southern Hospitality together and into the awaiting car, with Biel rocking JT's fedora. This morning Justin learned that he has even more reason to celebrate -- his SNL digital short that launched a million parodies, "D*ck In A Box" was nominated for an Emmy! Random! Though I must admit, my vote in the category of Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics has to go to "Guy Love" on Scrubs.

Justin may be done with his UK tour, but he's still got some work to do before bringing his SexyBack stateside. Final order of UK business, finishing up in the recording studio with Madonna. This time they had a few extra hands on deck including his right hand beatmaker Timbaland and Keisha Buchanan. No Gogol Bordello in sight this time. Keisha is a new one for us - apparently she's the lead singer of British Girl Group called the Sugababes. If JT, Timbaland & Madonna are into her, she's gotta be excellent. I've been hot and cold with JT recently, but one thing's for sure -- this collaboration is going to be sick.
More pics of JT, Madonna & co., so just read more
Justin was spotted looking rather annoyed again in Notting Hill the other day. While many of Hollywood's hottest celebrated the 4th of July in Malibu, JT spent the holiday on stage in the UK. We now hear he may be making a surprise appearance at Live Earth this Saturday! All this time in Europe doesn't mean he's forgotten about his home and the country he loves. During his show on the 4th, he said, "Because it's American Independence Day, I propose a toast... This one goes out to our troops fighting for our freedom."
JT also sounded so pleased to be so successful. He said, "When I was a little boy, I never thought that I'd ever play one show in London, let alone five! You've made a country boy's dream come true." Now this humble Justin is the performer we fell in love with as opposed to that cocky guy who came out this year. Now if only he could get that cute smile back on his face.
The long awaited JT single is out and I could have waited longer. SexyBack is the first song off his new album and so far I am not liking the new sound. You can barely tell it's him singing. Take a listen here.
TMZ has a video clip of JT, Cammie and Drew in Paris.
UPDATE: listen here for a much clearer version which sounds better but still not my favorite JT song.
So much for the break up rumors. JT may have been partying solo but the split was officially denied by the couple and now JT and Cameron were seen getting ready to fly away together. Justin will supposedly be in Barcelona to film his video for the first single off his new album. The song, "SexyBack," will be out July 7 unless it is "leaked" online earlier (and I don't mean a 15 second clip that doesn't tell us anything).
Not sure whether or not to believe this story but Page Six is saying JT and Cammie are over. We know JT has been seen out solo a lot recently. He is also gearing up for a big return to the music world as well as breaking in to the movie world. Could his busy schedule be an issue or was Cameron just too clingy? Page Six reports:
JUSTIN Timberlake has shown Cameron Diaz the door, so he can sow his wild oats. The hit-making horndog axed his love of three years because, "he's poised to leave on a world tour and he wants to be free," says veteran gossip Janet Charlton, whose new Web site, janetcharltonshollywood.com, debuts today. She says Timberlake made his decision after he and his pals went on a stag weekend to Las Vegas and Cameron "went chasing after him. She was just too clingy." Diaz, said to be "devastated," has had bad luck before. Her past flames include Matt Dillon and Jared Leto.
