JT pays homage to Barney Stinson via Suit & Tie

suitupNo no I am positive Justin Timberlake did not set out to write a theme song for Neil Patrick Harris‘s character, Barney Stinson, from the show How I Met Your Mother…but he did.

I’m sure by now you have all heard the new Justin Timberlake single on the radio “Suit & Tie” which I love by the way. I’m a Justin Timberlake fan and am happy he is releasing a new album, it’s about time!

anne-hathaway-justin-timberlake-160207405And wearing in a plaid suit at the SAG Awards, come on! How awesome is he, I mean seriously, not everyone can pull off that look but he totally rocked the 50s “Down With Love” suit at the award ceremony. (Let’s point out quickly, I never agree with who wins those awards, ridiculous. The only one I agree with is Tommy Lee Jones and that’s just because he is an amazing actor regardless of the role he plays and it stinks he was not at the ceremony).

Back to JT.

Justin’s album The 20/20 Experience will be released March 19. It has been, what, 8 year since he released FutureSex/LoveSounds? Too long! I know he has been pursuing other things, like acting and getting married, but I’m sure I’m not the only one thrilled to know we have a new album to look forward to mid-March.

Quick run down on the Grammy’s

Train won their third Grammy Award last night as the iTunes Session version of their hit song “Hey, Soul Sister” took home the award for Best Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Train’s iTunes Session EP features original performances by the band available exclusively on iTunes. This award marks the first Grammy win for iTunes original content.

Train frontman Pat Monahan said, “It’s been beyond our wildest dreams to have the success we have had this past year, and a Grammy completely takes it over the top. We can’t thank our fans enough for always sticking with us.”

I for one love their latest single “Marry Me,” which has been certified “gold” so far. The song continues its ascent up the radio charts, and is currently reaching 24 million people in audience.

Lady Antebellum, on the other hand, picked up five prizes, including song and record of the year. It marked the second consecutive year that a country act dominated the event, after Taylor Swift grabbed the Grammy glory in 2010.

The members of Lady Antebellum said they were left in tears backstage by their unexpected wins, which also included three awards in the country field, all generated by their album “Need You Now.”

“We’ll probably never have one of these moments ever again in our career,” said singer Charles Kelley. “You’re not going to win five Grammys ever again. We know that, we’re realistic. So we’re gonna try to soak it up.”

The number one prize of top album of the year went to Arcade Fire. Awesomeness.

Flamboyant pop singer Lady Gaga and rapper Jay-Z won three awards each, both of them beating Eminem along the way.

Kate was at the Grammys to support boyfriend – and future baby daddy – Matt Bellamy, who won Best Rock Album with his band, Muse.
