Justin Timberlake Is Pretty Cool

Like the rest of the world, I had not cared enough to remember that Cpl. Kelsey De Santis of the United States Marine Corp asked Justin Timberlake (via YouTube) to be her date to the Marine Corps Ball after he encouraged his co-star, Mila Kunis, to accept a similar invitation. He could have just blew it off or made up an excuse that his caviar facial ran late, but he didn’t. Well played, Justin. People reports:

This summer, Justin Timberlake accepted a servicewoman’s invitation to attend the Instructor Battalion Marine Corps Ball, and Saturday he made good on that promise. Timberlake was combat instructor Kelsey De Santis’s date to Saturday’s dance at the Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Va. The singer was wooed to the ball via video, when his Marine, a champion mixed martial artist in her off-time, made her plea on YouTube. “So, Justin,” she said in her online invite. “I’m going to call you out and ask you to come to the Marine Corps ball with me on Nov. 12. … And if you can’t go, all I have to say is, cry me a river.” Luckily, she had nothing to cry about. One fellow Marine who attended the ball told PEOPLE, “We all brought sexy back! Justin seemed to have a good time, and it was great to see him there.”

We can sit here and say that he did this for publicity, but really, does he need any? This site exists for the sole purpose of calling out celebrities for dumb shit, but it’s nice to see one step out of their world of privilege and excess and do something human for once. Also, this site exists for me to talk about my penis. Just wanted to clear that up.
