Justin Timberlake has revealed he uses webcams to keep in touch with girlfriend Jessica Biel when he is away on tour.
He told Oprah Winfrey recently: “Technology is a wonderful thing sometimes. I find that to be really cool, when you can actually see someone’s face. I do it with my friends, as well, just to have a conversation back and forth. It just makes you feel closer, that’s all.”
He refused to name Jessica as his girlfriend: “But all I can tell you is she smells lovely.”
He added that he gets “pretty romantic around her” and frequently serenades her when they are together.
OK. He gets some measure of points for not going ape-shit, jumping on couches and laughing manically. Some points. But “Technology is a wonderful thing sometimes” and “But all I can tell you is she smells lovely” are pretty lame. Sure he’s smitten (and who wouldn’t be, Jessica Biel is blazing, son), but he can do better. Also, maybe it was too reactionary to the Tom Cruise Oprah show but he could have at least called her by name. We just hope that he has another SNL appearance soon. Also, it would be pretty awesome to have JT serenade you. We wonder if he uses new material. Or does he just use his old songs and slip her name into it like when Elton remade Candle In The Wind for Princess Di?
