Timberlake Dicking Around at the Emmys?

    Will Justin Timberlake be allowed to show his “Dick” at the Emmys?
    I hear there are ongoing talks for Timberlake and Andy Samberg to perform “Dick in a Box” on the big night (Sept. 16) at L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium.
    No surprise there, because they’re nominated for the skit, which originally aired on Saturday Night Live in December. Problem is, not everyone is a fan of the racy ditty.
    Taking its cue from early '90s R&B videos, the number features Timberlake and Samberg with wrapped presents attached to their waists. They sing about giving very special gifts to their ladies for Christmas. The song even explains how to do it:
    1. Cut a hole in a box.
    2. Put your junk in that box...
    I’m told executives at Fox—the network airing this year’s ceremony—still haven’t given their final approval.
    When it aired on NBC, “dick” was bleeped out 16 times! A few days later, NBC came under fire from conservative groups when the network posted an uncensored version on the SNL website and YouTube.
    Reps for the Emmys and Fox did not comment, nor did reps for Timberlake and Samberg.
    Considering Fox is home to The Simpsons, you’d think there would be no hesitation.
    It’s not like Timberlake doesn’t have experience handling controversial television performances, but let’s just hope he and Samberg keep their junk well hidden. The last thing they need to be worrying about is a wardrobe malfunction.

  2. If only he was allowed to.... :smile:
  3. They might let him do it. They would just bleep out the word 'dick.'
  4. Huh...

    Don't think it'll happen. He's already participated in the wardrobe malfunction heard (or seen??) around the world! Doubt they'll go for round 2!
  5. For the record, I think much too big of a deal was made out of Nipplegate. It was a NIPPLE. Big deal.

    That being said, I see your point.
  6. I laughed so hard I cried when it aired the first time, and I totally thought about getting that shirt for my bf, only I know he'l wear it EVERYWHERE, lol!
  7. I found that skit hilarious.

    I guess if they said "penis" instead of "dick" then it might be a different situation. I don't know. If it was a woman talking about her breasts, then I doubt there would be this controversay.
  8. ^^ Tits in a Box just sounds odd.

    Also, if there was a Saturday Night Live sketch about tits, it would be bleeped, too.

  9. lol, i LOVE this SNL skit... I watched it on YouTube sooo many times.. its hilarious:roflmfao::roflmfao:
  10. I remember wearing that shirt when I was in Savannah for St Pats and some dood, who was at least 50 years old, walked by and said "Did you see his shirt...it's the dick in a box skit!".

    I hope when I'm 50 I'm that hip to pop culture.
  11. To Caitlin1214: True, LOL, that does sound a little weird.

    To Charles: :roflmfao:
