I Obviously Inspired Justin Timberlake With My Mad Rapping Skills

Okay so a few years ago I was part of a mom’s forum and we had our on American Idol contest.  Now I will be the first to say I can’t carry a tune but I entered anyways because I am all for making a fool of myself.  Heck my kids got so used to it they would run around in their underwear paying me no attention when I was doing one of my infamous videos.  What was pointed out to me today made me realize I might be a little more inspiring than I thought.  When Justin Timberlake (along with the writers of a movie) are so inspired by your performance they mimick it in a movie you are flattered.

Inspired by me, oh yes they were!  How do I know this?  Very simply because Friends With Benefits didn’t come out until 2011 and my performance was done 3 years ago!  I should totally have gotten credit in the credits for the inspiration don’t you think…

My performance (2009ish):

So give credit where credit is due JT, you totally know I inspired you! ON a side note, this is exactly what I was talking about in my sharing things about myself post, I aim to embarrass myself just to make you laugh..or possibly shake your head.

*Okay so I don’t think I really inspired the scene in the movie but it is fun to think I did, so just pretend with me okay.
