Justin Timberlake’s Early Voting Selfie Could Land Him In Jail


UPDATE: All good. The DA's office confirms there's no active investigation after all.


UPDATE: That escalated quickly.

Justin Timberlake is under fire for posting a selfie in a voting booth in Memphis, TN because, according to TMZ, "Tennessee law prohibits voters from taking pics or recording conversations" in the rooms.

They say the Shelby County D.A.'s Office is reviewing the circumstance, which could land JT a 30 day jail sentence and a $50 fine.

An official from the election's board where Justin voted thinks it's ridiculous, saying he should be commended for urging young people to vote, not prosecuted.

How is Donald Trump not locked up then?

Justin Timberlake wants you to exercise your right to vote.

Pop music is urging young people to vote. Jennifer Lopez, Jay Z, Katy Perry, Madonna, Sia, Mary J Blige and Miley Cyrus are doing their fair share to promote Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and JT is next in line.

Early voting has kicked off in select places, and the prince of pop is taking advantage of it. He posted a snap on Instagram of him explaining his journey from LA to Memphis to vote.

"Hey! You! Yeah, YOU! I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote !!! No excuses, my good people! There could be early voting in your town too," he wrote. :If not, November 8th! Choose to have a voice! If you don't, then we can't HEAR YOU! Get out and VOTE! #excerciseyourrighttovote"

One lucky voter ran into JT, and her life was forever changed. Suzanne Jones, a candidate running for the Germantown school board, told the Commercial Appeal: "I said, 'I know you’ve done it a lot, but I’d appreciate a picture with you.' Someone was going to take it for me. But he said, 'No, I can take it. I do have gorilla arms, since I do this a lot.'"


King of voting early.
