Life & Style Weekly reports that Gwen Stefani is expecting a third child at age 43. Editor Laura Lane also chatted about Robin Thicke’s alleged extra-marital affairs and Rihanna’s relationship with Drake on “The Ralphie Show.”

Justin Timberlake is set to release The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 on September 30. The album is the second installment of a group of songs that the superstar created over a year ago. At the time, there was a chance that the material would never see the light of day.

“Tim and I went in (to the studio) over a year ago with Rob Knox, Jerome Harmon… a bunch of great producers,” said Timberlake via telephone on “The Ralphie Show,” referring to producer Timbaland. “I just told them, I said, ‘Look, I don’t have any expectations for this music even coming out. Let’s just write a bunch of music and have fun doing it and keep it to ourselves.”

Joking that the group prevented leaks by simply taking their hard drives or threatening people, Timberlake and company went to work. They produced 30 songs in 20 days without even a murmur that something was brewing. The result is The 20/20 Experience, and an experience in creating music that pushed Timberlake in to a new mindset.

“I actually think taking such a conscious break from FutureSex/LoveSounds up until last year… you recharge your brain in a way where you come in with all of these ideas for songs,” he reflected of the process. “I think that’s why we ended up with so much material.”

Originally The 20/20 Experience was to consist of 10 tracks on each of the proper, standard releases with bonus material on deluxe editions. The second LP now includes 11 songs on the final track listing because Timberlake simply wanted to share what he created. With the album and supporting solo tour on the horizon, the singer agreed that this entire year back in music has reinvigorated his interest and desire to write, record, release, and tour behind albums.

“I would go even further to say yunno, it’s always been my first love,” Timberlake noted. “I feel like now we have something to say, and that’s why we decided this was the year to do it.”

Timberlake also had a thing or two to say a few weeks ago during his performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. During his 15 minute medley, the singer replaced a line in “Sexy Back” with the adlib, “I still run this bitch!”

“Um, yeah… we get amped up some times,” Timberlake said of the comment. “That’s all I can say.”

When asked about watching performances from Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, and Kanye West before taking the stage and making the comment, he elaborated.

“I think all of those people you mentioned, on stage and off, we’re different versions of ourselves,” Timberlake explained. “It’s meant to be taken with a grain of salt but if there was ever a time I guess I could proclaim that, it would be when you’re mentioned in the shadow of Michael Jackson.”

Following the performance, which also included a brief reunion of ‘NSYNC, Jimmy Fallon presented Timberlake with the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.” The “Suit and Tie” singer took home four Moonman awards in all.

The energy at the MTV “Video Music Awards” reached a new height when the briefly-reunited ‘NSYNC broke in to “Bye Bye Bye.” Justin Timberlake exchanged pleasantries with his former band mates and strutted back to center stage as the notes of “Suit and Tie” blared through the sound system. With the VMA set in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center, could this be Jay Z’s moment to grace the audience with his presence?

It would not be. Justin explained why to 95.5 PLJ.

“We talked about it, maybe, but also I just thought that this would be a nice moment to share with the guys from ‘NSYNC,” Timberlake told “The Ralphie Show.” “You can’t give me this award without saying, ‘Look at what the group accomplished.’”

The superstar reiterated over the phone a fact that he cited Sunday evening: around half of his Moonmen were won with the quartet. Jay Z would not make an appearance at all during the show, but he and Timberlake linked up later in the evening at an after party.

Timberlake’s full interview with “The Ralphie Show” will air Thursday, September 5.
