Justin Timberlake Reenacts Hilarious "It's Gonna Be May" Meme in Song
Can someone turn this into an SNL sketch already? Just a couple of weeks after Justin Timberlake got in on the "It's Gonna Be May" meme joke as the month approached, the "Mirrors" singer was back at it again, reenacting the meme on a UK radio station in song.
When Timberlake made an appearance on Capital FM Tuesday, he sang the lyrics from NSYNC's "It's Gonna Be Me" that sparked the meme. The Runner Runner star went on to explain why he originally sang the lyrics that way, saying co-writer of the song, Max Martin, told him to. "In my defense, Max Martin made me sing 'me' that way," Timberlake said. "I just wanted to throw Max Martin on the chopping block for that one, but thank you Max because now we have the meme of the century," he said with a smile. "I think he just wanted me to sound like I was from Tennessee."
As if seeing Timberlake sing "It's gonna be me" in the flesh wasn't enough, the hosts of the show took things a step further and got him to play an "It's Gonna Be Me" game. The first question was "What's a horse's favorite food?," to which Timberlake sang out, "It's gonna be hay." He went on to answer "What noise does a horse make?" with "It's gonna be neigh," and more.
Last month, when the meme kept popping up everywhere, Timberlake got in on the joke, tweeting, "Everybody... It is ACTUALLY GONNA BE MAY! #canyoumemeyourself Probably not, right?"
