January 2, 2018

Justin Timberlake's New Album + Super Bowl performance In Chinese culture, 2018 is the year of the dog but in American culture, it's the year of Justin Timberlake. Not only is JT putting out a new (possibly country music inspired) album after a four-year hiatus, he's also returning to the Super Bowl stage for the first time since he accidentally and infamously exposed Janet Jackson's breast on live TV in 2004. Let's hope he doesn't sing "and I'll have you naked by the end of this song," this time around.   3. The Final Fifty Shades movie A wedding, a high-speed car chase, more fun in the red room of pain and a pregnancy? That's how you cap off three movies! The final installment of the Fifty Shades trilogy hits theaters on Feb 9th! Get those Valentine's Day reservations in! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V08Gu1DOgE   4. A Royal Wedding  Meghan Markle is kissing her acting career and TV series Suits goodbye in exchange for some princess duties! She and Prince HArry will tie the knot in a televised ceremony at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in England on May 19th and you better believe all eyes will be on her! Did I mention she'll be the first American marrying into the royal family? Big. Deal. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bc9qWgCAXiD/?hl=en&taken-by=kensingtonroyal   5.
