The Top 15 Boy Bands Of All Time
All girls look to the guys in boy bands to help them get through their awkward preteen years.

Acting--The One Thing Justin Timberlake Can't Do?

June 16th, 2011 11:15am EDT
Justin Timberlake
I have been…well, I’ll call it an extremely passionate fan of Justin Timberlake since Dec. 8, 1998. I remember the exact date for two reasons: my mother actually let me go to the 'N Snyc concert on a school night, and because I went in mocking the then booming boyband craze and I left positively infatuated. Being a pop culture maven in training, I marveled at 'N Sync's bleach blond, beatboxing youngest member, Justin. I knew then what has been proven to be overwhelmingly true now: Justin Timberlake is one of the most talented and business savvy stars in the eccentric universe that is Hol...
