The ‘SexyBack’ singer – who has been dating Jessica for over a year – was seen shopping for engagement rings at famous New York jewellery store, Tiffany and Co.
An onlooker said: “Justin was really taking his time looking round the rings. He made the staff get a couple out of the cabinets so he could properly look at them.
“He didn’t buy anything but told the manager he would think about it.”
Jessica recently revealed she and Justin much prefer snuggling up with the board game Scrabble than going out drinking and dancing.
She said: “We do a lot of dinner parties and we play board games. I absolutely love Scrabble!”
Justin and Jessica have been reluctant to speak openly about their relationship.
15 – BYE, BYE, BYE: The Backstreet Boys may be reuniting, and rumors may abound about a possible get-together ahead for the New Kids on the Block — but don’t bother entertaining the idea of an ‘N Sync reunion. J.C. Chasez of the hit boy band says fans can say “bye, bye, bye” to any such hopes — at least “at this point in time. I think everybody’s really excited about their own projects. Joey (Fatone) is doing a great job hosting these television shows. Obviously Justin (Timberlake) loves what he does and he’s super successful at it, and rightfully so.”
He continues, “When we were doing it, we said, ‘We want to be as big as we can be. We want to put on the biggest shows. We want to sell the most records,’ and we did, and we’re proud of that fact, but now there are other things that we want to do. I’m excited about the things that I’m working on. I think that everybody in the group feels that way. If that changes at one point and we all decide to do something, then so be it.”
Besides focusing on his music career, Chasez is busy being a judge on “Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew,” which has the country’s top hip-hop crews battling it out each week. “I’m so excited to be bringing music and dancing back to MTV. It’s music television, but it has been submerged with so many of those reality shows, which is a sign of the times, and it’s good for what it is, but I was really happy to see MTV take the initiative to put a show together of such high production value that encompasses music and talent.”
