Justin Timberlake Served Bugs at His ‘Man Of The Woods’ Album Listening Party

Many guests were grossed out when Justin Timberlake served bugs as part of the menu for the listening party of his new album, Man Of The Woods.

The menu, which was put together by acclaimed chef Rene Redzepi of Noma, featured two insect dishes: ants served with black garlic and rose oil, and aebleskivers (Danish pancake spheres) served with grasshoppers.

Redzepi is no stranger to cooking these critters, with dishes and even a food lab dedicated to showcasing the deliciousness of bugs. If there’s one guy you want to cook insects for you, this is THE guy.

Unfortunately, not many people who attended the party felt that type of way when it came to consuming ants and grasshoppers. Variety reports that many people at the party were “taken aback” when offered the insect hors d’oeuvres, some of whom posted their thoughts on social media.

When you go to a @justintimberlake @americanexpress #amexplatinum #amexmusic album party and it just happens to be catered by @nomacph. This is literally the best thing that has ever happened to you in your life. EVER. like winning the lottery. So you have no choice but to eat 6 uni and kelp pies and an equal volume by of black truffle flatbread because the minions filling the room are there to mingle with celebrities like a kid from Stranger Things and Shoshi, drink cheap prosecco and don’t eat 🐜. #mylifeiscomplete #worlds50best #oadtop100 #foodgawker #foodspotting #nyceats #eatnyc #traveleatnyc #nycfood #seriouseats #infatuationnyc #eatingnyc #eatingnewyork #timeoutnewyork #grubstreet #lefooding #gastronogram #gastropost #foodandwine #cntravelereats #buzzfeedfood #eater #spoonfeed #saveur #gourmande

Bugs are one of the growing fields in the food world, though, as more people search for protein alternatives to meat. While not everyone is quite down yet with eating them, if more celebs like Timberlake advocate for eating the critters, folks may be more receptive to consuming them in the future. Who knows?

Justin Timberlake’s ‘Braspberry’ Hack Is Taking Over The Internet

Pop singer and actor Justin Timberlake just gave a creative food hack a novel name, and the internet’s already flipping out over the newly-dubbed “braspberry.”

Braspberry…

A post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on

In a video on his Instagram feed, JT shared some deep thoughts on the hack, which is performed by jamming a blueberry inside of a raspberry.

“Is it a coincidence that a blueberry fits perfectly inside of a raspberry? I think not,” he said in the middle of the process. Timberlake then coins his fruit conglomerate with the name “braspberry,” eliciting some laughs from those in the background as he pops it into his mouth.

The video’s already amassed over 3 million views in under 2 days, with many people commenting on how awesome or ingenious the idea was.

“He’s a genius and this is why we love him.” – @drebarnhill

“Those are some real deep thoughts 😂😂😂” – @danielle_renee127

“@justintimberlake but does that braspberry fit into a blackberry to make a blabraspberry?” – @justmops

This isn’t an entirely new food hack, however, as anyone who’s played with their berries while bored has probably done this at least once or twice. Still, Timberlake’s fascination with the braspberry has suddenly turned it into an ingenious phenomena to the internet.

It also looks like an incredibly easy healthy party food that I’m definitely trying out this holiday season.

Watch Justin Timberlake Play A Washed-Up LIME In This Hilarious Tequila Ad

Lime-Timberlake

Justin Timberlake has always been a pretty solid actor. A rare selection of musicians can gracefully transition into acting with such ease, but the 34-year-old artist has time again proven his acting chops. Timberlake has since invested in tequila company Sauza 901.

Because of this, he inconspicuously appeared in an ad for the Sauza. The premise is similar to a “Where They Are Now?” documentary, featuring humanoid limes.

Check out the three-minute tequila ad chronicling the rise and fall of Timberlake’s anthropomorphic fruit.

Ladies and Gentlemen, This is What a Justin Timberlake ‘Suit & Tie’ Sandwich Looks Like [VIDEO]

Poor Justin, no matter how sexy he’s grown up to be or how catchy his music is, it seems he won’t ever be able to live down that awful instant ramen-inspired ‘90s haircut.

(Yep, still funny 15 years later)

Made by the same folks who brought us the Beyonce sandwich in February, this ‘Soup and Thai’ sandwich by HoopLaHa features five pieces of Bok Choy (one for each member of N’Sync), ramen noodles (of course) and (sexy) baby (back) ribs, all on a “Corn-Biel” bun (just go with it).

Watch the instructional video below, in which some dapper-looking gentlemen dances around kitchen all monochrome, as ‘Suit and Tie’ plays in the background. Granted, if you tried to do the same thing, you’d probably take at least twice as long as you’d need to and ruin your suit, but hey, at least you’d look fly while doing it right? That’s the important thing.
