While most of the talk concerning Justin Timberlake recently has revolved around a botched NSYNC reunion at the VMA’s people stop to think that Timberlake really does seem like a decent guy. While other mega celebrities are getting into trouble and drawing unwarranted attention to themselves, Justin at least is in touch with humanity.
In the middle of a media tour Timberlake decided to stop the entire thing because of a conversation he had with a mother whose daughter just survived major brain surgery. Apparently on his way to do a live radio show in NYC, Justin was being rushed through the building when he met Tina DeLascio who told Justin her daughter Giana is a “Make-a-Wish” kid who underwent brain surgery last year to fix a serious blockage in her pituitary gland.
Timberlake was so moved by the conversation that he asked to meet Giana and stop his entire tour in its tracks. Giana was waiting outside the building with her brother. Tina grabbed her daughter and brought her inside to meet Timberlake. Tina told TMZ that Giana and Timberlake chatted for several minutes upon which Giana said that he was “the next Michael Jackson.” The two took a picture together which is now Giana’s smartphone wallpaper. You can see the pic at TMZ.
It’s rare to see a celebrity of Timberlake’s status do something like this and it puts a smile on our faces.
