Since there has been some speculation about Justin Timberlake working with Duran Duran in the media, we can confirm that ever since Justin presented the band with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Brits in 2004 they have all expressed an interest in working together. To that end, they recently met up with Justin and Producer Timbaland to start work on new music for their next album on Epic/Sony Records. This association is still in the early stages and nothing is finished yet.

23 – Reichen posts to his MySpace: LASER SURGERY!–and the Dixie Chicks
So I’ll keep you updated on my Laser Surgery adventure. I’m a pilot and have been talking about getting my eyes fixed for years. This past Wednesday, the 20th, we went in for my consultation and got the green light on my getting laser surgery. It was pretty painless other than that they had to dilate my pupils to look at my retinas.
The rest of the night left me sort of blinded. That day happened to be a special day for me and my boy, and we celebrated…he took me to the Dixie Chicks show, which I was actually able to watch through very brightened eyes. I’ll never do a press line again with dilated pupils. Talk about pain… However, I’m now the Dixie Chicks’ biggest fan and can’t wait to see what they do in the upcoming election. I love people that aren’t afraid to speak out politically.
Looks like I’ll have the procedure done this next week and will have to stay inside for 2 days wearing funny glasses. I’ll let you know how I can see when it’s all done.
[Pure speculation from me. “Special day” = six month anniversary?]

I nearly teared up, and there wasn’t a camera to be seen.
