In the spirit of actually using this blog that I pay for every month, I’m going to nonsensically post about what I did last night. That’s what blogs are for, right? Is this thing on? Am I internetting correctly?
So I had the opportunity to go to a private event at the Fillmore in Miami Beach last night, to see Justin Timberlake as a Priceless event for MasterCard cardholders. Jay Z and Justin had their last show for the Legends of Summer Tour at SunLife Stadium in Miami Gardens, and this Priceless event was an aftershow.
I have to say, I am old. I am ALMOST THIRTY. That is ancient, in Celisse years. Celisse years are kinda like dog years. Anyone more than a year younger than I am is a child, and anyone slightly older than I am is a fossil. Don’t ask questions, just love me for who I am.
Being old, staying up past my bedtime of around 12:30AM is a rare occurrence but, let me tell you, IT WAS WORTH IT to see Justin Timberlake in all of his glory.
The Fillmore is a pretty small venue to begin with. Coupled with the fact that it was being marketed as a small, intimate event, and the fact that I got there ridiculously early, I was able to grab my drank (a margarita, natch) and camp out pretty close to the stage.
Unrelated anecdote: Even though the event was 21+, I still got carded at the bar. HILARIOUS, AND AWESOME. The old turd behind me in the line yelled at the bartender, saying, “They checked our ID’s at the door! You don’t have to card her!” I just yelled back, “BUDDY I AM ALMOST THIRTY HE CAN CARD ME ALL HE WANTS.”
I am the most charming person alive. *hair flip.* ANYWAY.
J.Tim arrived fashionably late due to the Legends of Summer show being delayed, but there was a DJ at the show keeping the oldies dancing and the rest of us from falling asleep. Seriously, there were a lot of elderly couples making out at this show. It was a little awkward. Whateva, get it get it, I guess.
THREE SEMI-AGONIZING HOURS LATER, Justin finally went on stage around 2:30AM. AHHHH.
It was as magical as can be expected. Actually, it exceeded all expectations. I have to say, although I adore Justin Timberlake and have been a fan since his MMC days, I have never had much of a crush on him. I’ve just always wanted to be his very best friend and hang out on his yacht. Yeah. But A PARADIGM WAS SHIFTED DURING THIS SHOW, PEOPLE. I FELL INTO HIS TRAP. We must have made eye contact like, 3 or 4 or 18 times and, well, SWOON. I’m officially in love. Sorry, Jessica Biel.
Justin played all my favorite songs, which is mostly a whole bunch of stuff from FutureSex/LoveSound and Justified, and some from 20/20 as well. Overall it was just a super fun set that everyone could sing along and dance to.
Apologizing in advance for the quality because I am NOT a videographer by any stretch of the imagination, I’ll let the videos do the rest of the talking:
So, yeah. Great show and I’m so excited I had the opportunity to get up close and personal with a legend. THANKS, UNIVERSE!
