Justin Timberlake hits Taco Bell after People’s Choice Awards


Justin Timberlake declared himself the “People’s Champ” Wednesday after taking home three People’s Choice Awards. So how does an A-lister ring in said honors? Indulge in a little food of the people too.

“What do we do after we win 3 PCAs?!?! Easy... Go to Taco Bell!! People’s Champ, baby!!” the “Mirrors” singer wrote, captioning an Instagram photo of himself behind a Taco Bell counter with his three awards set up in front of a register.

We’re pretty sure Fergie’s hit song “G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S” has a lyric about this kind of behavior. Talk about a serious endorsement.

“Ok . . . One more. #PeoplesChoice,” he wrote on another shot of himself with the fast food employees. “Thank you so much to everyone who voted!! I’m feeling like the People’s Champ tonight!! Can’t wait to see you all on tour. #PeoplesChoice,” he also tweeted.

The pop crooner was presented the favorite album award by actress Jessica Alba on Wednesday at the Nokia Theater. In a cute bit, TV host Ellen DeGeneres, who was seated next to the ‘N Sync alum, went up to accept the award on his behalf. She made her way up the stage and he summoned her back with a kiss before he took the stage himself.

“Wow, sit down,” said Timberlake, who also won favorite R&B artist and favorite male artist.

“I would like to thank Ellen for all the personal inspiration and the cookies -- bakes a hell of a cookie,” he quipped.

“No, I would to thank my parents for continuing to instill in me in that no dream is too big. I would like to thank my team for putting up with my ridiculous neuroses all the time. I’m sorry, but not really ‘cause, look at this,” he added, holding up his award. “I’d like to thank all the fans who voted. I’ll take it, people’s champ, love it.

Then the actor-singer-songwriter gave a shout-out to his wife, actress Jessica Biel, who was not in attendance.

“And I’d like to thank my beautiful wife for teaching me patience and the little things and just putting the dishes in the dishwasher. It goes a long way. Fellas, you’re welcome,” he laughed.

DeGeneres did have her moment in the limelight that night when she accepted her 14th People’s Choice Award.
