With his new single selling well, Justin Timberlake is easing back into performing.
The actor/musician will be a special guest at DirecTV’s pre-Super Bowl “Super Saturday Night” event on Sunday, which will be co-hosted by Mark Cuban.
It’s unknown what Timberlake will perform, but we’re guessing his new song with Jay-Z, “Suit & Tie,” is up for consideration. Questlove will also be on deck to keep the crowd grooving.
Hip Hop artist Drake earned a leading 12 nominations today for the 2013 BET Awards, while fellow Hip Hop act Kendrick Lamar and rapper 2 Chainz earned eight each.
Drake was nominated five times in the video of the year category, which also features big names such as Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Lamar, Rihanna, 2 Chainz and Miguel.
It’s been close to seven years since Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, but it looks like the singer has no intentions of waiting that long to give fans a follow-up to his latest album.
The Roots’ Questlove, who spent quality time with JT during “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s” recent “Timberweek,” said via Okayplayer to expect the second volume of “The 20/20 Experience” later this year:
Billed as “the biggest night in music,” the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards has evolved since its start in 2001 into a major effort to celebrate the accomplishments of musicians, actors and sports stars.
All told, there are … persons/acts nominated to receive honors in 20 categories at the July 1 event, and the music category is loaded with the majority of recipients. Actor Samuel L. Jackson, declared the highest-grossing movie actor of all time, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, will be this year’s BET Awards host.
Once dominated by fair skin, fashion is an industry that is growing into a multicultural world embracing all nationalities, (although it may seem like a slow embrace). African American designers are among those moving toward the front of the fashion equality line.
These designers have proven they have what it takes to rise against the odds, and stand firm in a world driven by glamor, luxury, beauty and crossover appeal to the contemporary market.
