Justin Timberlake has apparently asked longtime girlfriend Jessica Biel to marry him. After an on-again, off-again relationship spanning four years, the celebrity couple were engaged in late December, according to Us Weekly

Timberlake popped the question while the couple were vacationing in Jackson, Wyoming, an insider tells the magazine. "Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place," the source said.  

"He knew it was the right time to propose," another source told Us Weekly.

Timberlake, who starred most recently in Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz and Friends With Benefits with Mila Kunis, is set to play the lead in Spinning Gold, a biopic of Neil Bogart, the late founder of Casablanca Records. Biel appeared most recently in New Year's Eve and The A-Team.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
