Just as we were giving Justin Timberlake a bit of credit for his sly comeback to Kanye West, the singer is already backtracking. In case you missed it during Timberlake's guest stint on NBC's “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend, he switched the lyrics to his hit “Suit & Tie,” which appeared to be a witty retort to West's diss of Timberlake's laid-back comeback record “My hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic,” Timberlake coolly...

Many poetic tributes have been made to Robin Gibb, the beloved singer who passed on Sunday after a long battle with cancer, including some 140-character thoughts from his Hollywood admirers. "We have lost a truly brilliant musician today. One of my idols. My heart goes out to the Gibb family in this time of sorrow...RIP Robin," wrote Justin Timberlake, who famously portrayed Robin several times on "Saturday Night Live" alongside Jimmy Fallon's Barry Gibb. An embattled John Travolta spoke out (despite his ongoing masseuse scandal)

On Wednesday evening musician/actor Justin Timberlake tossed off a mysterious tweet that said, simply, “Thursday, January 10th, 9:01 am PST.” With that little message, the online world erupted: Has the one-time N' Sync member, absent from the album charts for nearly seven years, finally decided to release new music? If so, it's certainly taken a while. The last time we had solo music from the superstar, George W. Bush was still president and "American Idol" (arguably) mattered.

Justin Timberlake's unofficial takeover of NBC continued Tuesday on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," where he's camped out all week long following his fifth "SNL" hosting gig on Saturday. On the second night of "Justin Timberweek," the singer performed a new song, "Mirrors," from his upcoming album, but it was his unusual rendition of "SexyBack" that was the standout moment of the episode. At the suggestion of a viewer, Timberlake teamed up with "The Ragtime Gals" -- "Late Night's" in-house barbershop quartet, known for their covers of raunchy songs like "It Wasn't Me" -- on a new version of the infectious 2006 hit single.

Another day, another component in the Justin Timberlake promotional juggernaut. Around the same time Tuesday night that The CW was airing a one-hour special memorably titled "Target Presents the iHeartRadio Album Release Party with Justin Timberlake," Vevo premiered the music video for "Mirrors," the second single from "The 20/20 Experience. " Timberlake's third solo album -- which marks his return to music following a six-year break -- arrived in stores Tuesday, though it had been available to stream on iTunes since March 11. On Saturday he performed at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, and last week he appeared for five nights straight on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

One of the key traits of Justin Timberlake's new “The 20/20 Project” is its length. The majority of its songs run longer than seven minutes, adding both volume and density. Produced by Timbaland with his longtime collaborator Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, the record's big, bold songs suggest a nod to prog-rock epic-ness. It's a notion that was confirmed during a recent conversation with Harmon, who has worked with Timbaland for nearly a decade, first as a keyboardist and now as one of his key co-producers.
