Not a Bad Thing

Justin Timberlake launches a search for love in the video for “Not a Bad Thing,” the third single off his album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.

The video, which premiered on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” is based on a true story of a guy who proposed to his girlfriend on the Long Island Rail Road using Justin’s song. The clip is less music video and more a documentary about finding love, and doesn’t feature an appearance from Timberlake.

In their quest to find the lovers, a search party plasters signs around town and gets the word out on the radio and Twitter using the hash tag #haveyouseenthiscouple.

There is also commentary from couples who found true love, giving insight into their relationships.

Will their search prove successful? Watch them keep romance alive.

During the singer’s show at Seattle’s Key Arena on Friday, Macklemore ran up to the stage to take a selfie with Justin as he was performing “Human Nature.” A security guard, who didn’t recognize the “Thrift Shop” rapper, tried to grab the camera before JT waved off the bodyguard.

Beyoncé Earns Praise from Justin Timberlake, Pharrell in ‘Self-Titled Part 5. Honesty’


“The glue that ties this record together is honesty,” says Beyoncé in Part 5 of her “Self-Titled” documentary. The pop icon reflects on getting her start at the age of nine and how she’s changed as a 32-year-old woman.

“Now I’m in my 30s, and those children that grew up listening to me have grown up, and I always felt like it was my responsibility to be aware of kids and their parents and all these generations,” explains Bey. “And I felt like it stifled me. I felt like, in a sense, I could not express everything.”

One of the most liberating songs on her self-titled album is the Timbaland-produced “Rocket,” which she co-wrote with Justin Timberlake and Miguel.

After recording the track, Timberlake was blown away. “There’s something wrong with you,” he tells Beyoncé.

She explains that the younger Bey wouldn’t have the confidence to record that. “I kinda dropped that fourth wall and I did it,” she says.

Pharrell also bows down to Queen Bey. “You set women free,” he declares. “I’m trying to tell you, that record is a phenomenon.”

The five-and-half-minute clip also features commentary from her collaborators including Jake Nava, Melina, Boots, Jonas Åkerlund, and more.
