When it comes to Justin Timberlake’s career chronology, 2015 may become the year of redemption. When it comes to recognition at the Grammy Awards, he is up for two different awards, reported the Columbia Tribune.
One nomination represents his guest vocals on “Brand New,” which is from the Pharrell Williams album, GIRL. The other nod results from his involvement as a co-producer for “Partion,” which Beyoncé released.
But it may be his decision to share his wife, Jessica Biel‘s, pregnancy news that is propelling Timberlake’s increased recognition, according to Billboard. He soared into the top 10 on the Social 50, which is a ranking of the most popular artists on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Wikipedia, Myspace, and Instagram.
Included in the Social 50’s calculations are friends/fans/followers, artist page views, song plays, and reactions evaluated by music analytics company Next Big Sound.
As a result, when Justin celebrated his birthday by posting a photo of himself posing next to Jessica’s pregnant belly, he received 900,000-plus likes on Instagram. That amounted to four times the response as his other posts.
And Justin’s caption expressed his excitement.
“Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets”
As the Inquisitr reported, Jessica Biel has been following a healthy diet to stay healthy. She believes in the benefits of an organic, locally sourced food plan that’s modeled after the Paleo diet.
Biel relies on a home delivery company called Paleta, created by Executive Chef Kelly Boyer, to provide clients with a healthy version of haute cuisine. The ingredients are sourced from local farms, cruelty-free ranches, and responsible fisheries.
Jessica praised Paleta on Twitter.
“Thank you eatpaleta for making my life easy & delicious. 3 meals & snacks at my doorstep? Yes pls. #PaletaForLife.”
And it’s not just Biel who is dedicated to a healthy regime. Justin told Bon Appetit that he follows a carefully calculated diet and fitness program.
“I train in the mornings and I’ll eat two breakfasts. I’ll have waffles with flax seed and almond butter and one egg scrambled. Then I’ll work out and have a second breakfast–another egg or a protein shake. Within a half-hour to 40 minutes after a workout, that’s when you want to load up on protein.”
And there’s a method behind his fitness focus, confessed Timberlake.
“I mostly work-out so I can eat religiously,” he said.
