Justin Timerblake

Tuesday, Justin Timberlake had a listening party in NYC for his new album, “Man of the woods.”  The singer is taking his woodland/rustic feel VERY seriously.  So serious in fact, he served his guests insects.  Yes, bugs.  Such as, ants covered in black garlic and rose oil or grasshoppers paired with aebleskiver, a traditional Danish pancake.  While most guests had positive reviews of the party, one guest said she, “had to go treat herself to a pizza.”  To see more on Timberlake’s new album and listening party check out the link below:
