It’s just so like him, isn’t it? Justin Timberlake is glomming on to Lizzo. Of course he is. Of course he had to flex. Of course he had to flaunt. He can’t f-cking help himself. And in doing so, it’s also confirmation that he needs Lizzo more than she needs him. That, I guess, is the silver lining here. Full Story

Nicki Minaj is in the news. Usually this makes me happy but Miley Cyrus has decided to speak on her to roll out three singles.
