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

Justin Timberlake has been famous since he was a kid. But the release of his latest CD, Future Sex/Love Sounds, has given him a much wider audience.

His appearance on the long-standing American late-night show Saturday Night Life a few months ago was hilarious. It showed he could not only sing and dance, he could act. In fact, he has acted in a couple of movies and made appearances in the videos of other singers.

Just as public as JT’s career is his personal life. We have all seen the photos and heard the gossip about his relationship with Carmen Diaz. And now they have broken up.

Listen to Mason and Amanda gossip about Justin Timberlake.

Mason:  You know who I freakin’ love these days? And it’s a big thing for me to admit this.

Amanda:  Boy or girl?

Mason:  Well, it’s not a sexual love, but it’s a dude.

Amanda:  OK.

Mason:  Uh, Justin Timberlake.

Amanda:  JT?

Mason:  He’s my man.

Amanda:  All of a sudden?

Mason:  He’s…

Amanda:  He’s been around.

Mason:  I know. But, like, I… It’s, like… I just realized how awesome he is, you know?

Amanda:  He’s pretty talented.

Mason:  Um, and I gotta say his emancipation from, uh, Cameron Diaz?

Amanda:  Mm hm?

Mason:  I think it’s, uh, it’s gonna do nothing but good things for him.

Amanda:  Why do you think that? She was the best thing that ever happened to him.

Mason:  What do you mean? Wha…?

Amanda:  She’s gorgeous. She’s talented. She’s older. She’s mature. She was gonna take care of him.

Mason:  OK, look, I’m gonna say this…

Amanda:  Keep him grounded.

Mason:  I’m gonna say another thing I thought I was gonna say… never gonna say… I, I love Cameron Diaz but she’s.. it’s like, she’s, she’s over. You know, what has she done lately that anybody cares about, you know, and…

Amanda:  You mean since Something About Mary?

Mason:  No. Uh, gosh, what was even… I mean…

Amanda:  In Her Shoes?

Mason:  Even the Charlie’s Angels ones were fun. Like, that was cool. Um, I don’t know.

Amanda:  I’ll be honest with you. It breaks my heart that they’ve gone their own ways. It really does.

Mason:  It, it seems to be the doom of all celebrity relationships, right? Like, if you’ve got one person that’s on the rise and the other person’s kind of, maybe stagnant...

Amanda:  Right.

Mason:  ... or even going down. How, how can that, uh… How can it survive?
