It's safe to say Justin Timberlake isn't dieting in the New Year.
The 32-year-old "TKO" singer picked up the award for "Favorite Male Artist" at the People's Choice Awards in L.A. on Wednesday, Jan. 8, and he celebrated in the only way he knows how: hitting up his favorite fast food joint. Naturally, he took pictures with employees and shared them via Instagram. "What do we do after we win 3 PCAs?!?! Easy... Go to Taco Bell!! People's Champ, baby!!" he captioned.
Timberlake, who once had an endorsement deal with McDonald's, also picked up the awards for "Favorite R&B Artist" and "Favorite Album" for The 20/20 Experience at the show; he lost "Favorite Pop Artist" to his ex-girlfriend, pop princess Britney Spears.
The "Take Back the Night" crooner attended the event with pal Ellen DeGeneres, who jokingly attempted to accept the "Favorite Male Artist" award on Timberlake's behalf. "Thank you! I would like to thank Ellen for all the personal inspiration and the cookies—she bakes a hell of a cookie," Timberlake said. "No, I'd like to thank my parents for continuing to instill in me that no dream is too big."
He also gave wife Jessica Biel a shout-out from the podium; for unknown reasons, the actress was M.I.A. at the star-studded event. "I'd like to thank all the fans who voted. I'll take it—people's champ, I love it," he continued. "And I'd like to thank my beautiful wife for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dish washer. It goes a long way. Fellas, you're welcome!"
Post-show, Timberlake continued to express his gratitude via Twitter. "Thank you so much to everyone who voted!! I'm feeling like the People's Champ tonight!!" he wrote. "Can't wait to see you all on tour."
This is the second consecutive awards show that Timberlake has attended without Biel. After missing the American Music Awards on Nov. 24, 2013, the Hitchcock actress explained her absence on Twitter.
"I'm watching from home tonight," Biel tweeted at the time. "Calm down, internet."
No word yet why the 31-year-old actress skipped the People's Choice Awards.
