As you know, Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, his first new album in years, drops in March. Another song, Mirrors, has been released online. This is the one you can sing at/to your friends in the car in the summer. This is the one Mrs Timberlake sings to herself when she’s in her car by herself. This is the one that validated, for her anyway, all the betrayals, all the waiting, all the clinging, all of it that came before he jumped on her head on the cover of PEOPLE. This is the one for her. Every time she sees Olivia Munn, this is what she’ll hear:
Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The biggest ? in my heart
There’s a space, but now you’re home
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me (Source)
That’s exactly what happened, right?
He came back to her once he figured it out.
Will this be the song he performs next year at the Grammys where he’ll undoubtedly be nominated for the most awards, and probably take home Album of the Year? JT’s been nominated for Album of the Year before, but he’s never won. Can you imagine Shelfy’s face if he owns the Grammys in 2014 with a song written for her? She might never grow out her fringe.
In other JT news, rumour has it, in support of The 20/20 Experience, he and Jay-Z will be going out on a 10 city stadium tour. Mrs Timberlake doesn’t appear to have a lot of work scheduled so she can ride along...backstage with Beyonce? B’s touring too so probably not, although that doesn’t mean she won’t be namechecking Beysus at every opportunity. It’s the birth of a new crew:
Beyonce, Gwyneth, and Shelfy?
