HOMELESS PEOPLE GIVE JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE THE LOLZ

I have been avoiding mentioning last weekend's wedding of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel  for two reasons: 1) because they bore me and 2) because I'm sure it'll be on the rocks by year's end and this will all have been a waste of my rapier wit.

But now this whole homeless-mocking business has come out and, well, now that's something I can get worked up about.
Apparently JusticaBielberlake (that's my offering for a celebrity name meld; it's no Brangelina but it'll do) spent a whopping $6.5M on their nuptials in Italy, a flagrant sum that makes me want to throw up just thinking about how many other more important things could have been done with that money.  

Presumably as part of his gift, Justin's pal Justin Huchel made a tasteless, hen-headed video for the blessed event. And you'd think, since Justie was throwing money around like confetti, he might have spared a little of it for a sensitivity adviser. Because then the conversation might have gone like this: 

Justin H: "Hey, I know! How 'bout we film a video of a bunch of grubby homeless people congratulating you and Jess on your $6.5M wedding!" 
JusticaBielberlake: "Teehee! I love it!"
Adviser: "Are you out of your fucking mind?"

Instead, apparently, it went like this: 
Justin H: "Hey, I know! How 'bout we film a video of a bunch of grubby homeless people congratulating you and Jess on your $6.5M wedding!"
JusticaBielberlake: "Teehee! I love it!"
Justin H: "I'll go find some street urchins!"

In the video, which TMZ reports was shown at the wedding, a homeless man grins toothlessly and says, “Justin, Jessica, I haven’t seen you in a long time. My gift is in the mail.” TMZ says he was paid $40 to read the pre-written lines and had no idea who the video was being made for. Indeed it was probably never intended to be seen by the hoi-polloi, but now that it's been leaked, Bielberlake fans are outraged by its tastelessness. As well they should be.

EDITOR'S NOTE: So much for bringing sexy back.

MY NOTE: Yup.
