Justin Timberlake put out an official statement defending the title of his latest song, “Take Back The Night.”
The single, which dropped last week and is featured on The 20/20 Experience-2 of 2, shares a title with the Take Back the Night Foundation, a group that looks to create safe communities and respectful relationships through awareness events and initiatives.
“Upon the release of my new single ‘Take Back The Night’, I was made aware of an organization of the same name called The Take Back The Night Foundation,” Timberlake wrote in an official statement obtained by Radio.com today (June 15). “I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organization.”
For over 35 years in the United States, Take Back The Night has been focused on eliminating sexual violence in all forms. In the last decade, thousands of colleges and universities have created their own chapters as a way of keeping students protected against sexual violence.
“As I’ve learned more about The Take Back The Night Foundation, I’m moved by its efforts to stop violence against women, create safe communities and encourage respectful relationships for women–Something we all should rally around,” he said. “It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause.”
Katie Koestner, Board Director of Take Back The Night, hopes that this debacle will also bring more light to her cause. In an interview with Radio.com today (July 15) following the release of Timberlake’s statement, she explained that because the organization trademarked their name back in 1973, entities looking to use the name must check in with them first.
On Friday (July 12), the organization’s legal department sent Timberlake a letter explaining to him what it is that they do and also expressed some dismay over the song’s lyrics. Koestner said her, along with organization, have no problem with songs that speak about sex, as long as it is consensual, citing a statistic that one in four women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. Left up to interpretation, lyrics like “The way you move, you go crazy, that’s incentive for me,” can cross the line from being sexy to dangerous. “We’re not anti-sex,” Koestner explained. “We’re anti-sexual assault.”
While Koestner was saddened to hear Timberlake hadn’t heard of her organization, she took it as a sign that Take Back The Night needed to work harder to get their name out there. “It’s a really important issue that needs to gain visibility,” she said. “We need to shed light on it.”
Her hope is that the organization will be able to gain notoriety among stars of Timberlake’s caliber, who can send the message, not just in a statement, but on a regular basis to their fanbase.
“In an ideal world, our pop culture icons will speak out more about healthy relationships in front of large groups of people or on Twitter,” Koestner said. “But I’ll start with a sentence.”

All together now: Awwww! Justin Timberlake gushed about married life with Jessica Biel to Ellen DeGeneres on her eponymous talk show on Thursday, April 25.
Noting that Biel, 31, recently admitted she loves “being able to say ‘my husband’,” DeGeneres asked the “Suit and Tie” crooner, 32, what he likes most about his wife and their six-months-strong marriage. “I don’t know,” Timberlake began.
“Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn’t see me looking, and I have this moment where I’m like, ‘If you never make a good decision . . . if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life. You made one really good decision.’”
After nearly four years of dating, the couple tied the knot last October in southern Italy at an intimate but star-studded bash. Continued Timberlake: “Because she’s just like . . . it’s nice to marry your friend. It’s nice to marry your best friend. It suits me.”
DeGeneres agreed: “Yes, it does. It does suit you. I’m very happy for you.”
The couple’s most recent joint appearance was this past Monday, where Biel was Timberlake’s companion at the Time 100 Gala in NYC; the magazine honored the singer-actor in its annual list of most Influential People in the World.
Back in November, Biel similarly gushed to DeGeneres about newlywed life. “It’s weird because it feels like almost nothing has changed, yet something that you can’t really describe, or something that isn’t tangible, has changed . . . It just feels incredible.”

Justin Timberlake is tripping. No really, he said so.
While in Austin to headline a surprise show at South by Southwest, the singer told MySpace that while this was his first time at SXSW, it was not his first time attending a music festival. “I’ve been to Coachella many times,” he said. “On many different, um, substances.”
It’s no secret that the former *NSYNC star is a fan of illegal drugs — heck, half the lyrics on his new album, “The 20/20 Experience” are a reference to marijuana — but this is the first time the newly-married man has openly talked about other substances.
He goes on to say “I remember I used to go to Coachella a long time ago. I remember Coachella when there wasn’t, like, paparazzi and stuff there. Like, I stood in an open field and one year I saw Nine Inch Nails and the next year I saw Weezer, and I was standing in the middle of the field, you know, like tripping my mind out.”
We’re going to give our favorite boy bander the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he just means he tripped on something while in the field. It’s possible.

Justin Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience is now on a pace to sell a whopping 800,000 copies during its first week on sale, which ends March 24th. Billboard reports that 20/20 is expected to top its albums chart, which would make it Timberlake’s second Number One solo album. (His first solo album, 2002′s Justified, peaked at Number Two.)
The growing sales count will also score Timberlake his best sales week ever, topping the 684,000 copies his previous LP, 2006′s FutureSex/LoveSounds, moved during its debut week. The biggest sales seem to be coming through iTunes, with Target – the only retailer carrying a deluxe version of the album with two exclusive bonus tracks – also quickly moving its stock.
With original estimates placing sales at around 500,000, the album is now on track to become 2013′s best selling record, surpassing Mumford & Son’s Babel, which despite its 2012 release, has sold 631,000 copies so far. (Coincidentally, Timberlake and Marcus Mumford recently collaborated on new music for the Coen brothers’ upcoming film about the 1960s folk scene, Inside Llewyn Davis, which co-stars Timberlake.)
Should 20/20 live up to these new estimates, it would mark the biggest sales debut for a male artist since 2010 when Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV pushed 964,000 its first week. Taylor Swift was the last artist to sell more than 750,000 copies, when her 2012 effort Red bowed at Number one with 1.2 million sold its first week.
