By Shannon Carlin
After a big win some people go home and pop some champagne. Justin Timberlake, he would rather make a run for the border and pick up a Dorito Locos taco.
Last night (Jan. 8) at the People’s Choice Awards on CBS, Timberlake took home three statues including Favorite Male Artist, Favorite R&B Artist and Favorite Album for The 20/20 Experience.
In his speech the singer thanked the fans for voting for him, his parents for “continuing to instill in me that no dream is too big” and his wife, Jessica Biel. “I’d like to thank my beautiful wife for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dish washer,” he said. “It goes a long way — fellas, you’re welcome!”
Biel did not attend the show with her hubby, but tweeted a message telling the Internet to calm down with the breakup rumors. She was just watching the show from home.
Timberlake also gave a special shout out to his seat buddy for the night, Ellen Degeneres, who took home the award for Favorite Daytime TV Host, a win that earned her the title of the most honored woman in the show’s history with 14 awards. “I would like to thank Ellen for all the personal inspiration and the cookies — bakes a hell of a cookie,” he joked.
After the show, he made a pit stop for a soft taco at Taco Bell, taking pictures with the employees.
