Justin Bieber Bonds With Jennifer Aniston And Justin Timberlake Backstage At “Ellen” 2000th Episode (VIDEO)
The three superstars had a run-in backstage at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where the talk show host was celebrating her 2,000th episode. Bieber was on hand to continue “Bieber Week,” which has him on every show this week in anticipation of his album, Purpose, being released on Friday. Aniston and Timberlake, meanwhile, came out as part of a big surprise for the host.
DeGeneres had no idea either of them were at the studio, but both were chosen because they had appeared on her first and second shows, respectively. “This is crazy,” exclaimed the comedienne, who revealed she wasn’t allowed to leave her dressing room so the surprise wouldn’t be ruined.
With the help of Warner Bros. Television president Peter Roth, it was then announced Stage 1 on the lot would forever be known as “The Ellen Stage.” DeGeneres cried over the honor, and Aniston seemed to become a little misty-eyed, too.
As for Bieber, he didn’t join Aniston and Timberlake on stage, but shared special moments with both behind-the-scenes. On Instagram the singer posted a selfie with Aniston, a picture actually reminiscent of ones she’s taken with his ex, Selena Gomez. And on Twitter, Bieber wrote to Timberlake, “Good seeing you and thanks for the kind words. Means a lot.”
Timberlake replied, “You too. Keep up the good work, lil’ bro.” Now if only there we were privy to those conversations! Instead, check out the videos below!
