Justin Timberlake is VMA bound!
The Pop maestro will not only be taking to the stage to perform at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards next Sunday, he’ll be taking home one of the night’s most coveted Moon Men.
Details after the jump…
As well as taking to the stage in support of new album ‘The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2)’, the former NSync’er will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award – an honor bestowed on Madonna, REM, and The Beastie Boys in prior years.
The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards will also feature live showings from the likes of Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, and Miley Cyrus.
In keeping it 100, we’re struggling to see why JT (at this point of his career) is being touted in such a legendary context. A megastar he may be, but his solo impact still needs more mileage to be granted such a hefty honor. Especially, with icon Michael Jackson’s named attached to it. Still, “congrats” are in order, we guess? This will no doubt serve give quite the boost to ‘part 2’ of ‘The 20/20 Experience’ when it arrives on September 30th.
