Britney Spears' Director Never 'Forced' Her To Over-Sex 'Work Bitch'

britney-work

Britney Spears whipped everyone into shape in her "Work Bitch" video. To get the behind-the-scenes scoop on the video, MTV News spoke to director Ben Mor, who not only revealed how Brit learned to use a whip, but also weighed in on some rumors floating around since its release earlier this week.

First off, he shot down speculation that the video cost upward of $6.5 million. "There's such bullsh-- out there. I wish! The thing... I shouldn't say it but it's not even a fraction of that. It's 200 percent absolutely false and it's almost embarrassing to say. The video absolutely did not cost that much," he said. "It's just a lot of misinformation."

Lauryn Hill Celebrates Prison Release With New Single



After serving a three-month sentence for tax evasion, Lauryn Hill is being released from prison later today and is marking the occasion with a new single called "Consumerism."

Hill speed-raps through a laundry list of societal ills over a chaotic rhythm that's more Death Grips than "Killing Me Softly." Her pointed voice brutally targets "corporate greed in Jesus’ name," decrying ageism, sexism, racism, fascism, "compromised commercialism," and "neo-McCarthyism."

Hill's release follows a controversial three-month sentence for failing to file tax returns on over $2 million in income over a two-year period beginning in 2005. Leading up to her incareration, she cited historical racism as one of the bigger reasons of her tax woes. On a brighter note, she recently inked a deal with Sony and a new record is reportedly in the works.

Check out Naya Rivera's engagement ring!



Collapse )

The half-Puerto Rican beauty looked chic wearing a low-cut camisole tucked into black silky trousers with her wedding bling.

Naya spent the afternoon promoting her debut single Sorry featuring her 25-year-old fiancé.

Meanwhile, the two-time Grammy nominee - born Sean Anderson - was 2,500 miles away performing at his concert in Toronto.

Rivera and Big Sean first went public with their relationship at the 42 film premiere last April, but they first connected over Twitter.

'Every morning I wake up, I look over at her and be like, "I'm winning so hard,"' the Hall of Fame hitmaker told E! News.

'He's awesome, and I'm really happy, and I feel like I'm in a really good place in my life,' Naya gushed to E! Online in May.

'So yeah, we're doing really well.'

Nina Dobrev Poses Topless ... for Obamacare?



Erhm ... That's one way to show some support!

Nina Dobrev joined the ranks of fellow celebs Olivia Wilde, Amy Poehler and Lady Gaga on Thursday, Oct. 3, when she showed her support for the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare). Unlike her famous peers, however, the Vampire Diaries actress doffed her top for the Instagram pic.

"Im Canadian. We have healthcare for all," the 24-year-old TV star explained in the caption. "If you dont have insurance go to http://say.ly/cdi6TN2 and #GetCovered ,Because w/o it, youre naked."

In less than 12 hours, Dobrev's nude shot received more than 88,000 likes.

Other celebrities who have posed with homemade #GetCovered signs include Emily VanCamp, Rosario Dawson, Kate Bosworth, Josh Hopkins, Connie Britton, Pharrell Williams, Kerry Washington, John Legend, Brian Baumgartner, Jenna Ushkowitz, Nick Wechsler and Torrey DeVitto.

Kween Tilda Swinton Wins An Award In Germany + New 15-Second Scene From "Only Lovers Left Alive"



Her creative and fashion sensibilities are similarly avant-garde yet minimalist.

And Tilda Swinton suited up in all black to accept the Douglas Sirk Award in Hamburg, Germany on Wednesday. The 52-year-old Oscar winner wore pleated trousers, pumps, a jumper featuring a necktie, and a blazer adorned with a diamond brooch. (OP: The menswear-inspired look is from her close designer friend, Haider Ackermann)

The actress rocked her usual blonde short haircut with little make-up aside from a striking red lip. Tilda was also at the Cinemaxx Dammtor for the Hamburger Filmfest premiere of her film Only Lovers Left Alive. The undead romance - helmed by Jim Jarmusch - centers on Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton), a vampire couple who've endured centuries together.

The not-so-typical love story will also screen at the New York Film Festival on October 10 and it will have a wider release next year. Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, and Jeffrey Wright also appear in Only Lovers Left Alive.

"The life and work of Tilda Swinton can be described as interdisciplinary, bold, assured in their style, committed, political and much more," the festival director Albert Wiederspiel said in a statement. "As an icon of today’s cinema scene, she was destined to win the Douglas Sirk Award."

Madonna Chats with Bestie about Stuff, then Scrubs Dirt



Instagram link of Madonna being mad at the dirt, not you.


(CNN) -- Madonna wants you to start a revolution.

The superstar spoke to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday about her new project, Art for Freedom. With it, she is inviting fans to submit original video, music, poetry and photography to fight oppression, intolerance and complacency through art.

Through Art for Freedom, she explains, "We have created this platform to give people around the world an opportunity to answer the question: 'What does freedom mean to you?' "

"I'm encouraging other people, whether they're professionals or not, to use their creativity to express themselves, to get a conversation going, to get the party started, really," Madonna told Cooper.

In September, Madonna revealed what was then only known as #secretprojectrevolution in 10 cities, including Los Angeles and New York City. Those in attendance were treated to a "call to action" film the singer created with photographer Steven Klein, in partnership with VICE Media and BitTorrent.

Cooper caught up with a relaxed Madonna, who joked that she was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after a grueling workout. But the artist was clearly passionate about the subject and even asked her son Rocco to wait a moment while the interview ran long.

Cooper and Madonna had a wide-ranging conversation, touching upon her favorite quote from author James Baldwin ("I don't separate the human spirit from the artistic spirit") to what ever happened to that Boy Scout uniform Madonna wore to the GLAAD awards earlier this year. (Each of her kids claimed an article of clothing, but "I kept the combat boots," Madonna said. "I'll need those for my revolution.")

Here are some highlights from the interview:

Anderson Cooper: I've heard you call this project the most important thing you've done, besides raising your children.

Madonna: Yes. Obviously, I feel a great sense of responsibility being a good parent and raising my children. I don't take that job very lightly. Who they are, what they become and what they contribute to the world is very important to me. No slacking in that area, thank god, but the same goes with this film. I've put in I don't know how many man hours, I've poured my own money into it. Steven Klein has done the same.

Collapse )

Imagine if someone like John Lennon or Bob Marley, Sid Vicious, Picasso, whomever, were doing their work and some corporation, some CEO, some branding entity was saying to you, well you can do that, but you've got to remove this aspect of your work. There would no longer be that purity anymore. We wouldn't have their gift.

We wouldn't learn from what they had to share with us. I'm all for noncensorship and freedom of expression.

Chad Michael Murray, Kenzie Dalton Call Off 7-Year Engagement



Chad Michael Murray split with his fiancée Kenzie Dalton after an impressive seven-year engagement.

According to his rep's statement, the longtime couple 'quietly parted ways earlier in the year' despite being photographed as recently as last month.

Back in 2006, the 32-year-old actor proposed to the One Tree Hill extra with an oval-cut sparkler while Kenzie was 18 and still a senior in high school, and while he was still legally married to Sophia Bush.

It was another eight months before the Fruitvale Station actor's divorce from co-star Sophia Bush was finalized.

Dalton, who played Cheerleader #1 on the teen soap, was first runner-up in the 2005 Miss North Carolina Teen USA pageant.

Murray had previously referred to the blonde 25-year-old as 'my best friend.'

'I'm the original voice of Siri'



Her name is Susan Bennett and she lives in suburban Atlanta. Apple won't confirm it. But Bennett says she is Siri. Professionals who know her voice, have worked with her and represent her legally say she is Siri. And an audio-forensics expert with 30 years of experience has studied both voices and says he is "100%" certain the two are the same. Bennett, who won't divulge her age, fell into voice work by accident in the 1970s. Today, she can be heard worldwide. She speaks up in commercials and on countless phone systems. She spells out directions from GPS devices and addresses travelers in Delta airport terminals. Until now, it's been a career that's afforded her anonymity. But a new Apple mobile operating system, iOS 7, with new Siri voices means that Bennett's reign as the American Siri is slowly coming to an end.

Albuquerque Paper Publishes Walter White's Obit: "He Will Be Greatly Missed"



If you're like us, then you're still mourning for the end of Breaking Bad—or perhaps obsessing about all the possible alternative theories about the finale. But while Norm MacDonald is dealing with the Walter White-shaped hole in his heart by retweeting literally everyone, a group of fans decided to pay tribute by placing an obituary for White in today’s Albuquerque Journal.

“I’ve been a humongous ‘Breaking Bad’ fan since the beginning,” David Layman, a Los Lunas science teacher, told the Albuquerque Journal. “I was actually in the pilot, and putting the obit in the paper was fitting, because the series was based in Albuquerque and it provides some of us some closure.” By us, Layman is referring to himself and members of the Facebook group “Unofficial Breaking Bad Fan Tour,” who pooled together for the obit.

“Of course, there are a lot of us sad to see the show and Walt go,” he added. “But being able to see that part of Albuquerque and the local talent was wonderful, and many of us could feel some pride.” We particularly like the understated description of his death and his side career: "White was a research chemist who taught high school chemistry, and [OH YEAH] later founded a meth manufacturing empire." Personally, we would have ended the obit, "Breakfast won't be the same without him."

I’m trying to raise awareness that way.”

Meanwhile, Jack’s wife Lisa has continued blogging after losing recently losing their baby.

Her last blog post reads: “We’ve all been there. You’ve played peek-a-boo, played with the dogs, swung outside on the swing set, ate lunch & breakfast, watched a cartoon, & exhausted all of your toy options to the point of BOREDOM. Your child appears bored, and you start feeling like a lame mom for not being able to keep them entertained.”

Madonna Harper’s Bazaar Cover Revealed [November 2013 issue]


#secretprojectrevolution maverick Madonna, Queen of Everything, graces the glossy cover of Harper’s Bazaar this November.

Though she’s been teasing the photo shoot for months on Instagram, this is the first time we’ve actually gotten a glimpse of the real deal.

A picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, many of those words are “YASSSS, MADONNA! YOU LOOK SO GOOD! OH MY GOD, YASSSSS!” She looks like the baddest boss bitch in town. But then, doesn’t she always?

The cover story will undoubtedly focus on Madge’s newly founded Art For Freedom project, which encourages up-and-coming artists to flaunt their politically-minded creative works in the name of freedom, as well as her successful Hard Candy Fitness franchise across the world. She’ll probably toss in a reference to Kabbalah at some point, some probable kale talk and, hopefully, maybe even some music. (Who knows? Perhaps she’ll even share her thoughts on Cher too.)

All hail the Queen.

It’s Official! Aaron Johnson Cast As QuickSilver in ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’

aaron_johnson_shirtless

It’s official cool kids. The deal closed.

Aaron Johnson will play Quicksilver in Marvel’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Sam Jackson confirmed that Elisabeth Olsen will play his sister the Scarlet Witch.

Johnson recently told Total Film recently about the character:

“There’s years – over 50 years – of backstory on him all there to use, and I like doing that. Him and his sister [Scarlet Witch] have been abandoned by their parents and their father, and they grew up in Eastern Europe defending and looking out for themselves and each other. His sister really is his guidance – emotionally she’s the one who looks after him, and vice versa. He’s very overprotective physically – he doesn’t want anyone touching her. He has real anger frustration – I like that. I always thought it’d be quite funny if you saw him eating loads and people asked him why and he’d explain it’s because he’s burning so much energy all the time. Or ideas that you’d see him come back round – but he’s already nipped out and got his lunch somewhere else. He just got bored – his attention span is so fucking quick.”

In terms of how Johnson is going to approach the character, he added:

“That’s what we’re in talks about really, right now – how I could become that character and not feel forced. I might not look right with white hair, and the accent may be wrong… it just doesn’t work like that.”

Avengers: Age Of Ultron drops in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Billboard: Justin Timberlake Should Have Scrapped 20/20 Part 2



"Too much of a good thing” isn’t a phrase I subscribe to. If there’s something good to be had, I’ll have it. Then I’ll take more, if available. So when Justin Timberlake announced that "The 20/20 Experience” -- his massively successful (currently double platinum) comeback album -- had another half to come, my reaction was, "Yes, please.” Though not as adventurous and racy as the 2006 "FutureSex/Lovesounds" album that preceded it, "20/20" is a delight with cuts that charmingly morph from Ginuwine-esque R&B into Sergio Mendes-like Latin jazz.

I looked forward to loosening up my belt and gluttonously taking in "The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2." And then I heard it. Good grief, it’s bad.

American Horror Story: Coven to get a spinoff? + Emma on the set

Creator Ryan Murphy screened the first episode to a group of reporters Thursday, and revealed that, given the show's anthology (one season and done) storyline format, he's already having casual discussions with FX President John Landgraf about continuing Coven somehow beyond this season.

"[Coven] is my favorite season that we've done so far," Murphy told us, "Every season, I get very sad when I say goodbye to and we tear down those sets. But John Landgraf, to be quite clear, and I have always spoke about that this is a show that's sort of right to spin things off. To do something different. So we are talking about it. Because I mean, I love it. I love this season, I love the cast, and I love what it's about. I love that set more than life itself... I mean, I already know what next season is and it's not witches but maybe something will happen. We're talking. It has to get on the air first, I think."

Marc Graboff on Updating 'Idol,' Paying 'Friends' Cast With Private Planes



Marc Graboff had a front-row seat for negotiations that brought Survivor to CBS, kept the Friends cast on NBC and moved Jay Leno from 11:35 p.m. to 10 p.m. (and back). Now, one of TV's most respected dealmakers is leading Core Media Group, best known as the parent company of Fox's American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance.

You're now looking at broadcast networks from the outside. What's their biggest challenge?

There's so much inertia. I think it's going to continue for a while, but you're seeing more and more cracks in the facade. Drama development at the broadcast networks is slower this year. If I were a writer of a serialized, edgy one-hour show that's darker, why would I go to a broadcast network? So the networks have a real challenge to attract those kinds of writers. The biggest selling point the broadcast networks have is that they still attract scale; when you hit on a broadcast network, you hit big. The other is that a typical network spends over $100 million a year on development and pilots. That's a lot of money to launch six shows, times four or five networks. And how many of them work? Those guys are playing at the $10,000 blackjack table. We don't want to play at that table.

Given the money being thrown at the host and judges, coupled with shrinking ratings, at what point does Idol not make financial sense?

Fox still makes a very nice profit from the ad revenue alone, and it helps them command a bit of a premium in the marketplace. There are a lot of intangibles. Think about what it does for their retrans negotiations and as a promotional platform. You've got to think about how many hours of television Idol provides for that network, too, so the unit cost per hour goes way down as a result. That said, the show's expensive. At what point does it not make sense? When the ratings fall below a certain point, if we can't read just the cost of the show, there could be a problem. But I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Madonna reveals rape horror ....


Madonna's life has been an open book for just about 30 years now. But in a cover story essay for the November issue of Harper's Bazaar, the pop legend, now 55, revisits an old trauma some fans may have forgotten about: Shortly after arriving in New York City as a scrappy unknown from Rochester, Mich. with enormous dreams of stardom, the singer was a victim of rape."New York wasn't everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back," writes Madonna, who adds that she "had my apartment broken into three times. I don't know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time."As Madonna acolytes know, back in 1978, the future megastar dropped out of the University of Michigan, where she had a dance scholarship, to move to the Big Apple.Arriving in New York, she says, "wasn't anything I prepared for," she writes. "Trying to be a professional dancer, paying my rent by posing nude for art classes, staring at people staring at me naked. Daring them to think of me as anything but a form they were trying to capture with their pencils and charcoal," she continues. (Some of those nudes later made their way into Playboy magazine after Madonna became a star.) "I was defiant. Hell-bent on surviving. On making it. But it was hard and it was lonely, and I had to dare myself every day to keep going."

Alexa Vega on fiancé Carlos Pena Jr: 'He's the opposite of my type'

Alexa Vega has revealed that fiancé Carlos Pena Jr is nothing like the men that she usually dates.

The Machete Kills actress announced her engagement to the Big Time Rush singer on Instagram in September.

Speaking to Access Hollywood Live, Vega revealed that Pena proposed while the couple were on a cruise.

"Carlos was the exact opposite of what I would go for. All the other guys I've ever dated were over 6'3," Vega explained.

She went on to say: "The guy I dated right before Carlos was 6'9 and they were all tall, lanky, white guys and never actors.

"And Carlos is a small, Latin, hot, fiery man. He's amazing and he really pushes me to best level, which is very important."


Vega was previously married to Sean Covel for two years. They finalized the terms of their divorce last December.

"Royals" by Lorde Is Not Racist



(follow-up to this post)

I'm guessing by now that you've all heard of Lorde. She's a 16-year-old pop sensation from New Zealand whose song "Royals" has taken American airwaves by storm. She's precocious, the song is ridiculously catchy, and the New York Times raved about her live show. So, naturally, someone had to come along and take a big, steamy poop on her immaculately coiffed hair. Veronica Bayette Flores of a blog called Feministing seems to think that "Royals" is racist. Her reading of the song's meaning couldn't be more simplistic:

While I love a good critique of wealth accumulation and inequity, this song is not one; in fact, it is deeply racist. Because we all know who she’s thinking when we’re talking gold teeth, Cristal, and Maybachs. So why shit on black folks? Why shit on rappers? Why aren’t we critiquing wealth by taking hits at golf or polo or Central Park East?

Could it be that there aren't any songs on the radio about golf or polo that 16-year-old girls listen to? Why would anyone assign their own cultural baggage to someone who isn't even old enough to buy cigarettes in America? Also, are "Jet planes, islands, [and] tigers on a gold leash" or "Blood stains, ball gowns, [and] trashin’ the hotel room" black things?

Flores goes on to say that "several, no, many people listened to this track, and saw no problem with it at all." Hmm. Interesting. I wonder why? "I don’t have to explain why wealth operates differently among folks who’ve grown up struggling." Actually, maybe you do. Hip-hop used to be about the celebration of the struggle for black people to escape the ghetto. It was about "making it." Now, it's about what you do after you make it. That's all fine and great, but does a teenager from New Zealand relate to that? Of course not. Maybe she'll understand Veronica Bayette Flores's dime store cultural criticism better after she's... gone to college.

Why should anyone be surprised that the proliferation of pop songs about conspicuous consumption would get tiresome eventually? I don't care what your race is, the number of people in America that have even seen a Maybach (or can pronounce the word properly) is miniscule. "Royals" is not racist.

UK's Powerful Daily Mail Faces a Political Storm

Britain's Daily Mail newspaper will tell you that many things you eat can give you cancer, global warming is probably bunk and the British way of life is under threat from pernicious Eurocrats in Brussels.

The Mail is Britain's most polarizing paper, and one of the most powerful. To fans, it's the voice of old-fashioned British values and the enemy of meddling bureaucrats and stultifying political correctness. To critics it's a sensationalist, small-minded rag that demonizes feminists, foreigners and the poor.

To politicians, the Mail is a formidable force whose blessing can help deliver crucial swing votes and whose wrath is best avoided. It's not the paper's conservative bent that bothers them — in Britain, unlike the United States, newspapers are expected to have a strong political stance that comes through in news coverage as well as editorials.

But many feel the Mail went too far when it angered Ed Miliband, leader of the left-of-center Labour Party, by running a story about Miliband's late father, a leading socialist intellectual, headlined "the man who hated Britain."

Eurogamer Expo: Joint statement released absolving comic/presenter of p. much everything




EUROGAMER EXPO 2013 - JOINT STATEMENT FROM LAURA KATE DALE AND FRASER MILLWARD

7 hours ago

Laura Kate Dale and Fraser Millward have come to agree that the situation which took place at the Xbox stand at Eurogamer on Sunday 29th September was an unfortunate misunderstanding on both sides. It has now been made clear that Fraser did not refer to Laura as an 'it' or a 'thing' or a 'he', and these claims have now been fully retracted by Laura and she is sorry for the hurt this caused. Fraser caused offence to Laura on stage when he publicly misgendered her by addressing her as 'this person'. Laura was also upset by statements which she saw as suggesting that she was not female. Fraser is sorry he said this, and for the pain he inadvertently caused Laura. Both parties wish to put the situation behind them and consider this matter now resolved.

Reboot is Getting a Reboot

The beloved '90s cartoon "Reboot" is getting a reboot.

B.C. animation studio Rainmaker Entertainment announced this week that it has renamed its TV division Mainframe Entertainment and launched development of a sequel to the first-ever fully computer-animated series.

You heard that right. Bob, Dot, Enzo, Frisket and Megabyte are coming back.

The announcement coincided with the 20th anniversary of the show's debut in -- this is going to make you feel really old -- 1994.

The original incarnation of Mainframe Entertainment, which Rainmaker acquired in 2006, was also responsible for the popular "Transformers" spinoff "Beast Wars" (BRING THAT BACK TOO).

Geeks were quick to rejoice at the news that Reboot is returning after a more than 10-year absence from the airwaves;

NME: Miley Cyrus Mocking Mental Illness Is Unacceptable



Collapse )

But whether O'Connor should've doled out advice or not, Cyrus's response to the letter was deplorable. Writing on Twitter, Cyrus compared O'Connor – who has openly battled with mental health issues – to the actress Amanda Bynes, who was hospitalised after a mental breakdown earlier this year. "Before Amanda Bynes.... There was..." she posts before an image of Tweets sent previously by O'Connor asking for psychiatric help.

By implication, Cyrus is saying that because O'Connor has had mental health problems she is not in a position to comment or hold an opinion. Would she say the same if O'Connor suffered from a broken leg, or cancer? Mocking mental health in this way exacerbates stereotypes that depression - and specifically in O'Connor's case bipolar depression - makes a person less-than and a social pariah. Cyrus has 14million Twitter followers, a quarter of whom will probably experience mental health problems at some point in their lives. There is no bigger pop star in the world than her right now; after the VMAs debacle she has trended on Twitter almost every day. Her influence is considerable. Let's hope her comments won't have forced closed any mouths of people who need to get help.

The charity Time To Change, a programme working against discrimination faced by people who experience mental health problems, have called for an apology. As they say, stigma and discrimination ruin lives. Cyrus should do the right thing, though I fear the damage has already been done. It's shocking and sad that someone in 2013 holds such a backwards view.

✰King Rob struggles with weight loss :'((( ✰


Health experts say that men lose weight more easily and rapidly than women, but Rob Kardashian is the exception to that rule.

Like Janet Jackson, Rob Kardashian’s weight has yo-yoed up and down over the last few years. He was in fighting form in 2011 for his stint on “Dancing with the Stars” but he’s been chubba-chubba since 2012.

Earlier this year, Rob seemed to be on the right track as he was enthusiastically making an effort to exercise and train with the Game.

But more than six months later, Rob Kardashian is still undeniably fat as the latest pictures prove.

The Daily Mail highlighted Rob’s latest attempt to get fit but apparently, he’s downgraded from going out on runs to just walking. While something is certainly better than nothing, Rob is gonna have to kick it up a notch if he hopes to make a dent in his Pillsbury Dough belly anytime soon.

If Rob’s considering another reality TV stint, maybe he should look at joining the cast of “Biggest Loser”. Oh, and he might want to skip going for seconds this Thanksgiving too.

Glee perpetuates biphobic nonsense, water is wet



Oh, Glee. So much to say, so little of it good.

To get through an episode of Glee you have to set your bar pretty low if you don’t want to spend an hour being offended by something. The show is regularly racist, sexist, ableist, and, really unexpectedly given the basic facts of the show, homophobic.

Today we’ll add biphobic to the list. [Wait, it's always been biphobic. Kurt said bisexuality is something gay guys made up so they could hold hands with girls and feel normal or something bye.]

The 30 Best Boy Band Songs



There should be a chapter on boy bands in every Sex Ed textbook. For many pre-teen girls (and boys), the boy band provided an important first foray into the wild world of hormones. Some boy band members are teenagers, others could be teenagers' fathers. Yet individual members of their underage fan bases can each find something "sexy" in each individual boy band member: the rebel, the teen dream boat, the emo one, the ugly one.

But there is much more than fantasy to the prescribed functionality of the boy band. As the personalities take their shape, leaders emerge, and sometimes, these teeny-bopper bait-traps end up yielding a solo star who wins a more mature audience—the "Beyoncé" of the group, someone who's able to shed the skin of their choreographed-dance-sequence past and go onto greater things. Ricky Martin, Bobby Brown, Justin Timberlake attest.

The former NSync'er Timberlake is about to deliver the sequel to this year's colossal The 20/20 Experience album with The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2. In honor of JT's glorious history, Complex revisits some of the biggest hits from boy bands dating back to the '80s up until now. So grab your neon shoelaces and puff paint t-shirts and revisit some modern classics. The 30 Best Boy Band Songs. No I.D. required.

6 Movies You Won't Believe Started Iconic Fashions

Every so often, a trend will take off with a force so powerful that consumer demand drives manufacturers to rush knockoffs into production, like how every person wore a "Thriller" jacket in 1983, no matter how ridiculous they looked.

Hollywood has always had a hand in shaping popular culture and taste, so it should come as no surprise that its influence on the fashion decisions people have made throughout history has been enormous. But with so much pop culture to consume and content being churned out at such a fast pace these days, it's doubtful these super trends will ever have as much sway as they did in the past. Unfortunately, that means we'll probably never again experience moments like when ...
