Justin Timberlake Grants Wish to Woman Battling Rare Disease

Amanda&JT(PCM) It’s not every day that we are granted the opportunity to meet our idols, but Amanda Renneberg of Alberta, Canada turned her dream of meeting superstar Justin Timberlake into a reality this past Monday. Twenty-seven year old Amanda suffers from the rare and debilitating neuro-muscular disease, Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), which affects 15,000 people worldwide. Inspired by Timberlake’s lyrics to stay strong through her battle with FA, Amanda set out to meet her hero by creating a Facebook page to attract his attention. Her efforts certainly paid off; Timberlake personally called Amanda with the invitation to meet both he and his wife, Jessica Biel, backstage at his Edmonton concert.

“It was so surreal to have my JT ringtone ring, and then it was him,” said Amanda. Just prior to the January 13th concert, Amanda and her boyfriend of twelve years were granted the momentous opportunity to meet and chat with both Timberlake and Biel. During this encounter, Amanda made one final request; that Timberlake hold her as their photograph was taken. Of course, gracious Timberlake obliged. “I don’t really like my wheelchair in pictures so much because it’s kind of a new thing to me, and I just wanted him to pick me up,” Amanda explained.

During the duration of the concert, Amanda and her boyfriend watched the show from Timberlake’s mother’s table. The evening was concluded with yet another meeting in the lounge where Amanda was treated to exclusive Timberlake memorabilia. “I pretty much cried myself to sleep, like happy tears,” said Amanda.

‘N Sync Slated To Reunite At The MTV VMA’s!

nsync2(PCM) It appears now that the dreams of many N’Sync fans will come true as several sources are reporting that Justin Timberlake and ‘N Sync will indeed take the stage at this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards for a one-time only reunion.

The show will take place at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY and will mark one of the first times that the band has performed together since their split back in 2002.

The group also recently had a mini-reunion of sorts when they were spotted all together in the VIP section at the recent Jay Z and Justin Timberlake show in Miami, FL. Guess they have all put the past behind them and forgiven Justin for the lack of wedding invitations!

Justin Timberlake will be the recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, for his “pioneering and innovative impact” on music videos at this year’s award show and is also nominated for six other coveted moonmen statues including Video of the Year for “Mirrors”.
