Star: Jessica Biel ‘begged’ Justin Timberlake to help launch her singing career

Poor Jessica Biel. I do feel sorry for her sometimes, genuinely. She’s so pretty… and that’s all she’s got. She doesn’t have a great style eye, so her efforts at becoming a Fashion Girl have fallen flat. She’s a really flat, uncharismatic actress so her career is pretty blah. But at least she’s married, right? Justin Timberlake will take care of her. Except Jessica doesn’t want Justin to just take care of her – she wants him to help launch her music career!! Oh, God.

Justin Timberlake is a multi-talented artist, but he doesn’t want to share the love with his wife, Jessica Biel. Although Justin, 32, leaned on Jessica for help to build his acting career over the years, Timberlake is reluctant to return the favor now that Jessica wants to become a singer.

“She begged Justin to record a duet with her,” divulges a source. “But he’s refusing. He thinks it will look bad.”

Despite her husband’s harsh reaction, pals say Jessica is determinded to find success.

“With or without him, she plays to release a single,” the confidant adds.

This will be one of those rare times when I find myself on Team Timberlake. Granted, we don’t know if this true, but I wouldn’t put it past Jessica to think “Maybe I’ll start a music career now that I’m not getting movie roles and I’m married to Justin Timberlake.” I have no idea if she can even sing. I would guess that she probably doesn’t have much of a vocal talent, although that hasn’t stopped other people from becoming successful pop stars. But I do think JT is right to refuse her – it would be seen as nepotism at best and cringe-worthy cheeseball at worst.

Here are some photos of Jessica out and about at the Farmer’s Market earlier this week. Do we need to start Bump Watching her or can we just say that her shirt is baggy? Also, I had those jeans. When I was 9. They totally had the zippers on the sides too.

    Awww, poor Jessica..I thought being Mrs. JT was her ambition.

      Ha,the sandals are driving me crazy – I would probably like them on the store display, but it looks like the beaded(?)detail is too close to the front end of the sandal and would be constantly rubbing against your toes and toenail polish as you walked, in a really uncomfortable way.

  2. Anna says:

    Jessica Biel needs to stop trying to make Jessica Biel happen. It is never going to happen!

  3. Mary says:

    I think she is really pretty, but she’s just so, so boring. And not just in films, she looks boring in pictures too. I just can’t understand how someone so pretty can be so boring to look at.

  4. mzizkrizten says:

    I love her jeans. Her butt looks good. She was the best thing on Seventh Heaven. What happened?!

  5. lady mary. says:

    forgive me but. aha ha ha ha ha

  6. Rhiley says:

    Justin needs to start shaving his head again. This new, bend-it-like-beckham hair poo does not suit him at all.

  7. Lucrezia says:

    I want a Biel/Timberlake version of Especially For You. (The corny 80′s love song recorded by Jason Donavon and Kylie Minogue when they were dating.)

  8. Yellowshaba says:

    Jessica needs to realize her station in Hollyweird. Shes a pretty girl with a bangin body, but shes horrendiously dull. Her acting is dull and lifeless as would be her singing career. Shes forever C list and will forever now be known as JT’s wife. Look, Jessica Alba who had the same problems finally figured it out and moved on to other ventures.

    i’m sure she wouldnt be the first bad singer to sleep her way to a recording

  10. Bonfire Beach says:

    What, exactly, is wrong with her jeans? I have them with the zippers too.

    And that’s all I got because she’s so meh.

  11. Yelly says:

    Okay, since when can she sing? And he really needs to quit it with the relaxer and embrace the curliness.

  12. Emma says:

    She needs to (re-)launch her acting career first.

  13. shannon says:

    Didn’t she sing on Broadway at some point? I think she can sing, but that’s no guarantee that she will ever be a pop star.

  14. truthful says:

    oh. I forget about her..

  15. NANALU says:

    She is a pretty girl – though needs a boost other than J.T.

  16. Jenna says:

    “Although Justin, 32, leaned on Jessica for help to build his acting career over the years,”

    Someone in Jessica’s employ might have seriously gotten her screwed with that ‘leak’. She helped HIM build his acting career? Really? I don’t like the guy, but he started out on Disney as a very young child actor and I rather doubt her wooden performances, flounces and eyerolls were a master class in acting for him. (She was the original lipbiter, but without the massive movie franchise Kristen Stewart at least has in her back pocket!)

    Trying to make it sound like it was her amazing acting chops that got Justin into movies is going to, at best, make for a few chilly nights at the dinner table, I can’t help but think.

    You know things are bad in your career when your partner has a better career at a profession that they did not even start initially.

  18. diva says:

    This needs to never happen. Seeing her off beat dancing in the audience to Justin’s performance at the Grammy’s was extremely painful.

    Can somone tell me what htis article is about…I fell asleep when I clicked on it! Ciffs notes…thanks!

  20. phlyfiremama says:

    Isn’t he having great difficulty relaunching his OWN singing career again??? I think after he whined about Janet jackson and her wardrobe malfunction and was such a little punk about it, his career hasn’t been the same.

  21. Bijlee says:

    Why is everyone’s comments italicized?

  22. NoU says:

    Not that I like her to begin with, mostly because my husband thinks she’s one of the hottest chicks alive (hahaha, yeah right). What’s wrong with how she dresses? She dresses like a NORMAL person. I dress the same way: shirt, jeans and flip flops. Just because she doesn’t dress in overrated designer clothes doesn’t mean she has no fashion. Fashion is what you feel comfortable in. As for her singing career, well, eh… I think she should stick to trying to be a regular person. Nothing wrong with being regular.

  23. MsLDG says:

    I found a vid of her singing on Jay Leno, she stalls a bit and starts at 3:00

    And apparently she was in musical theatre a few years ago

  24. LilyT says:

    I thing a BIG part of her appeal for JT is that she will Never outshine him.. Or even come close… Ever. And he wants to keep it that way.

  25. LilyT says:

    Also, not a fan of the boob-squishing dress.. she has great ones.

  26. TOPgirl says:

    They are such an ugly couple. Not sure if its Justin or Jessica that’s so boring to look at. Maybe it’s both together.

  27. Marianne says:

    She sang in the movie Easy Virtue. She’s not a bad singer. She’s pleasant but not anything to write home about.
