Mrs Carter: Justin enjoyed his date with Corporal Kelsey De Santis.
Last July a YouTube video of Corporal Kelsey De Santis went asking Justin Timberlake to the Marine Corps Ball went viral and when Timberlake heard about the offer from Kelsey, he happily accepted the offer, saying that he rarely gets asked out on a date.
On Saturday night Timberlake made good on his promise to escort De Santis to the Marine gala at the Greater Richmond Convention Center out in Richmond, Virginia. Timberlake posted a message on his blog on Sunday outlining some of the Marine Corps Ball highlights. He said;
“I’ve always been very vocal about my support of our Armed Forces. I’ve always felt like they offered us the opportunity to live our lives freely without the fear that so many other nations have to endure still to this day. And, they do it without asking for anything in return. I had this very feeling walking into this dinner.”
Justin said that he had an incredible time at the event and was happy he had gone with DeSantis who he said was ‘very cool’ and ‘humble.’ He said;
“She seemed to me to be so humble and honest… Very cool. She also simultaneously seemed like she was nervous about the whole evening and if I was going to enjoy myself… 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… Humble, concerned for others before themselves… This was the type of person our Marine Corps was building. I was really blown away.”
“Thank you Corporal Kelsey De Santis. Thank you for inviting me. And, thank you for being my hero.”
This is just one more reason why women around the globe are crazy about Justin Timberlake.
