YMMV: Justin Timberlake

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: "Dick in a Box". Just about everything he does for Saturday Night Live, really.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "Mirrors". So very much.
    • "Rock Your Body"
  • Ear Worm: "Like I Love You", "Sexyback", "My Love" still get played a lot in popular culture.
    • "Cry Me a River" proved that he would still be popular after leaving *NSYNC.
    • "Rock Your Body", especially after a... memorable Super Bowl performance with Janet Jackson.
  • Growing the Beard: Literally, FutureSex/LoveSounds onwards. Figuratively, it could apply to either said album or Justified.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In 2001, he and NSYNC recorded a cover of Janet Jackson's "That's The Way Love Goes" in tribute to the singer. Three years later, the infamous Super Bowl performance with Janet happened.
  • He Really Can Act: His work on The Social Network really turned people around to his acting ability.
    • Perhaps subverted in that several of his films (and performances) since then have earned lukewarm receptions, perhaps going to show that his effectiveness was due more to David Fincher's direction and Aaron Sorkin's screenplay.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "Carry Out", his song with Timbaland that consisted of nothing but food innuendos. Back in 2000, *NSYNC was the musical guest on SNL and their cameo on a sketch was that of a boyband who sang songs with food innuendos.
  • Ho Yay: Aside from his *NSYNC bandmates, he has a whole of this with Jimmy Fallon. So much that during Justinís impromptu speech at his wedding reception in front of 150 guests, Jimmy interrupted him with a joke from his seat, sparking an improv between the two of them that went on for a good five or 10 minutes and had all the guests roaring with laughter. Justin admits that if it was anyone else, he would have kicked their ass.
  • Narm: The spoken word in the final section of "Like I Love You".
  • Signature Song: "SexyBack".
  • Tear Jerker: "Another Song", "Losing My Way", "Until the End Of Time", "Worthy Of", "Never Again", "Rehab" with Rihanna, "Blue Ocean Floor", "Mirrors" (which suffers from massive Lyrical Dissonance).
