People Magazine released their idiotic wedding issue, with Justin Timberlake’s heel at his wife’s eye-level, replete with anecdotes about how he pulled focus from the bride walking down the aisle too because everyone was busy crying at the song he wrote for the occasion. And aside from it looking like a reject NSYNC album on which Jessica Biel is an afterthought, everyone is talking about Britney Spears appearing on the cover a decade after they split. Which obviously isn’t an accident. But I just thought People were gifting us with an early Christmas handjob because that cover is like all my Christmases coming at once. Except, not so much, it’s more like spite. The photos of Justin Timberlake at Justin Timberlake’s wedding, featuring Justin Timberlake as wedding singer with fashions designed by Justin Timberlake, were few, grainy, and poorly-lit, which angered the magazine who paid $300,000 for the rights to be left with a paltry selection. So they chose the worst of the bad bunch for the cover and stuck the knife in by adding Spears. Hello! Magazine bought the rights in the UK and I guess they’re p**sed too although they left his ex-girlfriend off the cover.
Word around magazine circles is that PEOPLE was not happy with the quality of the pictures that JT sent over. Rumour has it the lighting was s**t, they had little to work with, and, considering what they paid, they were disappointed with what they were sent… which is typical Justin Timberlake, isn’t it? You will take what you get. You will be happy with what I give you. Because I’m Justin Timberlake. You should just be grateful I picked you. Well, perhaps not as grateful as he expected. Because PEOPLE (PEOPLE! of all people! can you imagine what an intolerable d**k he must be if PEOPLE decided to f**k him over in return?) made sure that he shared his special day with Britney.
