Intro

1. Learn Vocabulary - Learn some new vocabulary before you start the lesson.

2. Read and Prepare - Read the introduction and prepare to hear the audio.

We watched Justin Timberlake dance and sing when he was teenager. We witnessed his break up with Britney Spears, and gasped at his racy Super Bowl performance with Janet Jackson. Then we watched him snuggle up and settle down with Cameron Diaz.

His new album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, is all part of that evolution from boy to man. You may not even recognize that it’s Justin Timberlake, but it is.

Listen to Erin and Amanda gossip about Justin.

Erin:  So, Get That Sexy Back, Justin Timberlake. Can you tell that it’s him?

Amanda:  No, you can’t. You can’t. It’s still pretty hot, though.

Erin:  Really?

Amanda:  And I just downloaded that and put it on my phone.

Erin:  I wasn’t a huge fan of him when he was in NSYNC, because it was a boy band, and he had the curly hair ’fro, but, and he would wear the bandana. But he’s definitely a white boy, he cannot pull off a bandana.

Amanda:  But do you agree that he can dance? If not sing, that he can dance.

Erin:  Ok, yeah. He can dance. And I do respect the fact that he has a lot of respect for, like, Michael Jackson, and Usher and those other people that, like…

Amanda:  Right. His inspiration.

Erin:  Yeah. Um, I’m glad he’s over Britney Spears. That’s probably the best thing he ever did.

Amanda:  He’s definitely moved up in the world, huh?

Erin:  Yes, with Miss Diaz.

Amanda:  They’ve been together for what, three, almost four years?

Erin:  Yeah.

Amanda:  And she’s always gone in public to say that she doesn’t believe in marriage, it’s not for her.

Erin:  Oh, really?

Amanda:  But, they were spotted in Honolulu, scoping out ballrooms,

Erin:  Oh?

Amanda:  Wedding venues?

Erin:  I thought I heard a rumor that there was a ring on her finger with a O sparkling diamond on it, which, I mean, you know, makes everybody think engagement ring?

Amanda:  So maybe a 10-karat…

Erin:  Oh, yeah, at least.

Amanda:  ...I’m thinking, from JT?

Erin:  Talk about a power couple.

Amanda:  Yeah.

Erin:  Her film success and his music?

Amanda:  They seem like they’re probably, like, really funny, and down to earth, and…

Erin:  They do seem down to earth. And real.

They down to earth!?Celebrities are celebrities, maybe they got only an image of being close to the people, but i dont agree celebrity really can be down to earth. But there're some expectations, but not them.
