Florence Welch Was 'Obsessed' with Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake attends “A Centennial Tribute to Gene Kelly” at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Thursday (May 17) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 31-year-old entertainer met up with Patricia Kelly, the Hollywood icon’s widow, who hosted the event.

Florence Welch recently chatted with Rolling Stone and revealed she had a huge crush on JT when she was growing up.

“When I was a teenager, we were obsessed with Justin Timberlake, so when me and Isa [bandmate Isabella Summers] started making music, we said, ‘The goal is, we gotta meet Justin Timberlake and get him to come to the studio,’” the Florence + the Machine lead singer shared.

Did she ask him when the two recently met at the 2012 Met Ball? “No, I was too shy,” she said.

    Either way she´d have no chance with him. He´s into real men, not manly looking ladies.

    I love Florence and the Machine but I couldn’t figure out she would see in Timberpussy. Like the above states he’s queer as a three dollar bill and just won’t admit it, cause know girl could like him. Major Douche Bag who thinks his s_it doesn’t stink and believes his own hype.
