Strawberry haze is pretty awesome to…JT on Fallon

It’s been a beyond-crazy week for Justin Timberlake. Just mere days away from the official release of The 20/20 Experience (March 19!), Justin’s been celebrating “Justin Timberweek” every single night this week on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” (we’re tired just thinking about it), complete with live performances of “Mirrors,” “Pusher Love Girl,” and the classic “SexyBack” (with a barbershop quartet!).

Now Justin’s debuted another new track from The 20/20 Experience (maybe you already read about it in our GIF album review?), “Strawberry Bubblegum.”

Decked out in varsity baseball-style jackets, Justin and his backup singers shook and finger-snapped their way through the R&B-tinged make-out anthem “Strawberry Bubblegum.” Then, building upon the performance’s sports theme, some additional backup dancers joined Justin onstage in full baseball uniform regalia. Why all the baseball hats and striped pants?? We can’t be too sure… Could it have something to do with baseball players and their penchant for chewing gum? If that’s the case, shouldn’t the song actually be called “Chewing Tobacco”? Er, never mind — all that matters is Justin can shimmy around the stage singing “My lips are strawberry strawberry bubblegum” ALL he wants — whether or not the costumes make sense is besides the point. Check it out below! And for goodness sake, stream The 20/20 Experience already!

Justin Timberlake Says He is ‘Absolutely’ a Pot Smoker

By Jeremiah Vandermeer, Cannabis Culture – Tuesday, June 14 2011

CANNABIS CULTURE – JT loves his MJ: Teenie-pop sensation turned rising Hollywood star Justin Timberlake says he is “absolutely” a pot smoker, and that “some people are just better high.”

In a recent interview with Playboy, the former ‘N Sync frontman couldn’t have been more upfront:

PLAYBOY: You’ve talked openly about using drugs, smoking marijuana. Are you still a pot smoker?

TIMBERLAKE: Absolutely.

PLAYBOY: Is it a creativity booster? I read you were stoned for much of the time you made Justified.

TIMBERLAKE: The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high.

It’s an interesting interview, and JT seems like a pretty cool guy. Hollywood seems to think so too: JT is playing starring roles in the upcoming Bad Teacher, Friends with Benefits and other films.

This isn’t the first time JT has talked about his herb-smoking habits. I thought he looked baked on that episode of Punk’d!

I was starting to wonder if Timberlake had been hot-boxing the studio with the boys from The Lonely Island after seeing these hilarious collabo music videos from Saturday Night Live. I’ve been getting high and watching these for a month:

The guys from The Lonely Island – Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone – feature Snoop Dogg on the title track of their new album, Turtleneck and Chain, and just told MTV what they learned while hangin with the Doggfather:

“Weird thing about Snoop, we found out: Snoop doesn’t smoke weed,” Taccone said.

“Yeah, he doesn’t smoke weed,” Samberg picked up. “He smokes weeeeeeeed. He smokes weeeeeeeed. He does not smoke weed.”
