Back in July, Cpl. Kelsey de Santis posted a video on youtube inviting Justin Timberlake to the Marine Corps Ball, because that was all the rage back then. And a few days later he accepted, though he seemed like he might try and back out by adding, "If my schedule works out."
But he didn't. The ball was Saturday night in Richmond, Virginia, and true to his word, he went. And not only that but yesterday he wrote a long and seemingly sincere entry on his website calling it an "honor and privilege".
"I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes. It's funny too because a lot of them are SO younger than me. The evening wound down for me as, I had to catch a plane. But, I have to say that I had so much fun with Kelsey and her crew of friends. They were just really nice people... Classy Marines but, not without a great sense of humor. Real individuals but, not without a sense of community."
Well... fuck. Justin Timberlake is a spoiled little dick, and I really like calling him that. But this was astoundingly cool of him. It ruins everything. I feel like he did this just to spite me.
