Justin Timberlake attended a Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, Virginia over the weekend as the date of 23-year-old Marine Cpl. Kelsey De Santis.
De Santis had asked Timberlake to the event via YouTube request and, after the event, she tweeted that she had a great time:
“The ball was epic! Had a wonderful time.”
Timberlake added on his blog that he was impressed with the young lady:
“I have to tell you, it’s not every day that I meet a 23 year old girl and she’s more worried about if I’m having fun or if I’m comfortable! It hit me all of a sudden that these were the type of people that look after us and our freedom.”
De Santis’ request came after another Marine requested that Mila Kunis attend a ball with him. Timberlake encouraged Kunis and was later asked out himself by De Santis.
