The Pippys at the White House
Justin Timberlake was invited to the White House yesterday to participate in a workshop hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama on Soulsville, USA: The History of Memphis Soul alongside legends Sam Moore, Mavis Staples, and Charlie Musselwhite. The Photo Assumption in some of these pictures cracks me up. Look, in particular, at Moore and Staples, their expressions when Pipsqueak is speaking. To be fair though, they did include him in some camaraderie later, and it would have been dishonest of me not to include those images too. It’s just the other ones, if taken on their own, are so funny. Which is why Photo Assumption is such a great, if unreliable, game.
Anyway, Mrs Timberlake accompanied her husband to the event. She was not photographed because she was not on stage. She made sure to let us know though that she was there when she tweeted:
I hugged POTUS. I hugged POTUS. I hugged POTUS.
As for calling her Mrs Timberlake exclusively, well, this is what she posted on Instagram the other day:
Mrs Timberlake is Mrs Timberlake, that’s it. (Thanks Sabera!)
PS. JT should save whatever it is that he’s using on his hair for Bradley Cooper when he’s done with his perm. That sh-t is magic.
PPS. I love the way the President is looking at Sasha here.
