Of all the ridiculous teen-pop choreography from the Trl era, the puppet dancing from N'Sync's "Bye Bye Bye" video could be the most (in)famous. John Krasinski paid tribute to Justin Timberlake and company's 2000 hit during Thursday's Lip Sync Battle, mouthing the words with zeal as he mimicked every last move.
"Jimmy Fallon thinks he's a real good friend with Justin Timberlake," the actor says to open the above clip. "But he ain't this good a friend 'cause I'm doing 'Bye Bye Bye.'" Donning a wireless microphone headset, Krasinski »
Shane West had what it takes to be a leading man in a Nicholas Sparks‘ film. (But not just any Sparks film, probably the most devastating one of them all, A Walk to Remember.) And the actor knows exactly why Sparks’ work gets the best of every emotion you never knew you had.
“He’s kind of batting a thousand,” West told Nick Lachey on Big Morning Buzz Live Friday. “He’s just very real with his stories, he comes from a real place. I think fans appreciate that.” He also reminisced about working with Mandy Moore and being on his first major press tour, which hit up Trl, obviously. “My biggest memory is no memory. I was so scared and intimidated. There were so many people in your face, screaming, laughing, smiling. It was chaos.”

It is humanly impossible to be excited by the idea of a new talk show. When's the last time you sat through an entire talk show monologue? Was it recently? If so, then why? What did you hope to achieve by hearing three jokes about current events? Don't you understand that the internet will compile any worthwhile talk show clips for you in the morning? Come on. Grow up. Luckily, James Corden seemed very aware of boring talk show tropes during his "Late Late Show" debut and did his best to circumvent them. The Tony-winning actor served up a modest but promising first show with the help of guests Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis, who were brilliant and utterly boring (respectively). Kunis spent what seemed like a fortnight on Corden's couch discussing her jewelry designs. Almost bravely dull. To Corden's credit, there were practically no other lowlights to his debut. »

The actress and singer signed her first record contract when she was just 15 years old and almost immediately began touring with *Nysnc and the Backstreet Boys.
"I went from watching them on Trl to...signing a record deal and six months later I was on the road with them," Moore said.
However, according to Moore, being the newbie backstage with the hottest boy bands in the world led to some embarrassing moments starring one Justin Timberlake!
"My favorite story is, I’m 15, I’m touring with this boy band at the height of their superstardom, we were all »
Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter on Saturday to share a hilarious, photoshopped version of that iconic Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears denim-on-denim moment - a version with Ryan's and Blake Lively's faces.

Dave Sirulnick, one of the chief backers of MTV’s news and documentary efforts over the past three decades, is leaving the network in the wake of cost-cutting efforts by its parent company, Viacom, according to a person familiar with the matter.
As executive vice president of news, documentaries and specials for MTV, Sirulnick may not be as well known as Gideon Yago, Kurt Loder, Tabitha Soren or SuChin Pak — all of whom have hosted news and themed specials on the network over the years — but he was involved in many of the programming efforts that made those on-air personalities important in the lives of MTV’s viewers.
Sirulnick has been an executive producer of MTV’s “Video Music Awards,” and ran signature programs like “Total Request Live” and “Week in Rock.” But he also made MTV a network that figured into the national conversation by linking the causes important »

Remember last decade, how you used to quote Mean Girls word for word while talking to your best friend on your Nokia cell phone? You wore low-rise jeans with tiny t-shirts and Rocket Dog sandals and spent your afternoons requesting music videos on Trl and learning the dance moves to "I'm a Slave 4 U." We'll be honest; we still quote Mean Girls and try to copy Britney Spears routines, but we look back on those days with equal parts dreamy nostalgia and sheer horror. We're taking a trip down memory lane with all the best (and worst) things about coming of age in the aughts. So here we go: you know you were a teenager in the 2000s if . . . Source: Getty »
From Janet's wardrobe malfunction to Prince's risque pantomime, the Super Bowl halftime show has featured moments that are sometimes more memorable than the game itself. On a massive worldwide stage, audiences have seen everything from a Destiny's Child reunion to a show-stopping performance from the King of Pop.
Here's a look at some of the Super Bowl's best halftime moments:
7. Bruno Mars Brings the Funk
The halftime show is using more about spectacle than musicianship, and while Bruno Mars certainly had plenty of flash, he and his terrific dancing band also brought some serious chops to their halftime performance at Super Bowl Xlviii in 2014. The feel-good performance got the crowd (and audience at home) on their feet and a cameo from the Red Hot Chili Peppers only sweetened the deal (even if their guitars were unplugged).
6. Diana Ross Takes Flight
