Watch Justin Timberlake diss Donald Sterling at Billboard Awards

Singer thanks 'everybody on Earth -- except Donald Sterling'

Justin Timberlake is a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies, so he won't have a say on whether or not Donald Sterling gets to keep the Clippers. Only controlling owners will get to vote on that matter.

Still, Timberlake made his position perfectly clear while accepting his Billboard Music Award for top performer Sunday night.

"I wanna thank everybody on Earth, everybody on Earth," Timberlake said, "except Donald Sterling."

Wow, so that means Kim Jong Un, all the Kardashians and even the members of the Backstreet Boys can all take part in Timberlake's jubilation.

But not Sterling, who has already been fined $2.5 million and banned for life from the NBA for making racially insensitive comments during a recorded conversation.

Let me know how all that turns out — I'll still be at Timberlake's party celebrating the success that apparently even I played a part in. I'll be the one holding court between Bill Clinton and Bruce Springsteen. See you there!
