Justin Timberlake Tops The Latest Pop Power Rankings

FILE - This June 2, 2012 file photo shows actor-singer Justin Timberlake accepting the troops' choice for entertainer of the year award at the 2012 Guys Choice Awards in Culver City, Calif. Timberlake is apologizing for a video that shows homeless people offering congratulatory wishes to the pop star and his new bride, Jessica Biel. Timberlake posted an open letter on his website Friday, Oct. 26, saying he didn’t know about the video or contribute to it in any way. He calls the video “distasteful” and says he’s deeply sorry to anyone offended by it but acknowledges it was made by well-meaning friends. The 19-second video titled “Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn’t make it” shows three people who obviously don’t know the famous couple greeting them with wedding wishes.
