TAYLOR SWIFT AND JENNIFER LOPEZ AMONG PEOPLE MAGAZINE’S PEOPLE OF THE YEAR’ – (12/06/2019)
People magazine’s annual “People of the Year” double issue has four covers. Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez were among those singled out with their own covers, along with Jennifer Aniston and Michelle Obama.
“Our People of the Year issue celebrates the stars who have made an impact on our culture,” notes People Editor-in-Chief Dan Wakeford. “I wasn’t surprised that we ended up with an all-female foursome – this year has been dominated by strong women.”
Lopez “ticked every possible box as she turned 50 this year,” Wakeford says. “…Oscar buzz for ‘Hustlers,’ which she co-produced; a blockbuster music tour; a beautiful family; an upcoming Super Bowl appearance…”
Wakeford says of Taylor, “2019 was arguably the year Taylor Swift found her voice. She stood up to protect her creative rights, spoke out for what she believed in…and…her album ‘Lover’ became 2019’s bestselling record in just one week. Truly epic.”

SOCIAL MEDIA REACTS TO JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE’S APOLOGY TO JESSICA BIEL AMID PRENUP RUMORS – (12/06/2019)
After Justin Timberlake was photographed holding hands with his co-star Alisha Wainwright, the 38-year-old was widely criticized across social media. He took the unusual step of publicly apologizing to his wife Jessica Biel for a “strong lapse in judgement.”
“A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar,” he wrote in a message to his 56.8 million Instagram followers. I drank way too much that night and regret my behavior. I should have known better.”
Timberlake and Biel share one child.
He alluded to him later in the post: “This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that.”
Timberlake and Wainwright, an African American, are currently filming the upcoming drama Palmer, and many see a parallel in this drama to another incident in which many believe he threw another black performer under the bus.
Wrote one, in reference to his infamous Nipplegate incident: “What if Justin Timberlake were to escape scot free for all the public shenanigans caught on camera, and left a Black Woman holding the bag to have her career forever changed and reputation marred, without really ever coming to her defense? That couldn’t happen? Right?”
As many will recall, when Timberlake performed the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show with Janet Jackson, he accidentally pulled off part of her top and her breast appeared onscreen. Many believe that Timberlake’s failure to take any responsibility for the incident permanently marred her reputation and career.
JESSICA BIEL & CHEATING CLAUSE?
According to People, the Limetown star has accepted Timberlake’s apology, and believes he didn’t cheat.
“She will stand by him,” the source said. According to multiple reports, the pair may even have a prenup clause prohibiting infidelity. If it occurs, the person is penalized.

“We didn’t give to them,” Camila joked, adding:
[“I actually just get shy, weirdly. I feel like I would kiss him in the dress rehearsal, but then we are onstage and then something stops me.”]
Camila’s new album Romance drops today.
She will also be starring in her first movie, Cinderella, produced by James Corden – and she couldn’t be more thrilled, saying:
[“Even working on it so far I’ve just been having so much fun. I literally grew up being such a drama geek… I love anything to do with princesses and fairy tales, anyone who knows me, I want to live in that world so badly, I try to live in that world as much as I can.”]
