Well here’s a memo to all the male celebrities on a PR quest to win back the love and adoration of the world: Just do something relatively nice mid-performance for a fan.
This week, Justin Timberlake stopped his show at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan, after he noticed a sign a woman was holding in the front row.
“I gotta stop the show for a minute. This is very cool,” Timberlake told the crowd, reading the poster the woman had made. “This says, ‘Will you help announce my pregnancy tonight?’”
The woman’s name was Darcell Baxtresser, and Timberlake took her sign and said: “Baby Baxtresser arriving November 1, 2018.
“Tell Papa B I said congratulations too!” he added.
On Facebook, Baxtresser wrote it was the “most unforgettable moment” of her life.
“This was the most amazing, magical, unforgettable moment I have ever had in my life!!! My first love to announce my pregnancy was crazy!!! A truly special memory I will forever cherish!! Thank you!!
