Justin Timberlake Attends Marine Corps Ball with Fan
People reports that the Bad Teacher actor made good on his promise and attended last night’s 2011 Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, VA with none other than fan Kelsey DeSantis. DeSantis, a combat instructor, made headlines when she posted a video of herself asking JT out to the annual formal on YouTube.
“So, Justin,” she said in her online invite. “I’m going to call you out and ask you to come to the Marine Corps ball with me on Nov. 12. … And if you can’t go, all I have to say is, cry me a river.”
At a Friends with Benefits press conference earlier this year, Justin publicly announced that he accepted Kelsey’s invitation:
I’ll tell you what: I accept. But not because she shouted out one of my songs, which I do love, and not because she had all those beefcake military guys behind her to intimidate me. I don’t get asked out. Ever. So I was very flattered by that.
Not only did Justin take Kelsey to the dance, but he also thanked his date (and the rest of the guests) for a lovely evening on his blog! JT wrote on his site:
I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes. It’s funny too because a lot of them are SO younger than me.
