I Have Loved Justin Timberlake Since 1997 Because…

Last night, Justin Timberlake hosted Saturday Night Live for the fifth time and completely rocked it. Not only did JT hit it out of the park, but he brought along tons of stars (Tom Hanks, Paul Simon, Alec Baldwin) to come and hang out with him at 30 Rock because everyone in Hollywood loves him. He sang. He acted. He looked perfect. Is there anything this man cannot do? He’s just too perfect.

I don’t want to brag or anything, but I knew that Justin Timberlake was something special when I was 8 years old. I was kind of ahead of the game when it came to everyone’s latest obsession. I saw the music video for “Tearin’ Up My Heart’ on MTV and couldn’t keep my eyes off of the blonde boy with the curly hair. Who was he?! He was perfect! He was my first crush. His picture covered every inch of my walls growing up. I would ride my bike to the drug store and buy Teen Beat, Teen Bop, and Tiger Beat just so that I could tear out all the pictures of Justin and learn that he loves pizza and the color baby blue at the same time. He was going to be my husband. We were going to get married.

There are so many amazing things about Justin that make him so crushable. His crushable status is way off the charts. How could you have any other favorite member of *NSYNC? If you were a J.C. fan, I don’t think we can be friends anymore.

I’ve compiled a list of reasons why Justin Timberlake is the love of my life and should probably be yours too.
