Here's the latest on 'N SYNC'S status at JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE'S wedding . . ."Us Weekly" says Justin DID invite CHRIS KIRKPATRICK and JC CHASEZ. JC couldn't make it because his brother was getting married that same weekend. And it's still unclear whether Chris was there. But Justin did NOT invite JOEY FATONE or LANCE BASS . . . because he's OVER THEM . . . whatever that means. A source says, quote, "Justin thought a reunion would overshadow the wedding. And Justin hates Lance now."
LOL, nothing more awkward than when you can hear your neighbors ehhh...well check this out: JOHN MAYER may have experienced SEXUAL NAPALM when he was with JESSICA SIMPSON . . . but it sounds like things are going just fine with KATY PERRY, TOO.

If you were offered the choice of HAVING SEX . . . and listening to QUEEN'S "Bohemian Rhapsody" . . . you'd put your iPod down, right? Well, according to a new U.K. survey, you might regret that decision. 2,000 "music fans" were polled, and more than 40% of them . . . or two in five . . . claimed listening to music is "more arousing" than well...yeah
The music psychologist who conducted the survey says, quote, "From neuro-scientific research we know that music can activate the same pleasure centers of the brain that also respond to much less abstract rewards such as food, drugs or sex."
So, what kind of music are we talking about here? Well, Queen songs for one. Respondents were asked to choose songs they considered better than sex and "Bohemian Rhapsody" topped the list. Three other Queen jams made the Top 20.
Here are the Top 20 songs that the respondents considered "better than sex":
1.) "Bohemian Rhapsody", Queen
2.) "Sex on Fire", Kings of Leon
3.) "Angels", Robbie Williams . . . (--Again, this IS a British survey.)
4.) "Bat Out of Hell", Meatloaf
5.) "Livin' on a Prayer", Bon Jovi
6.) "My Heart Will Go On", Celine Dion . . . (--Can I request an explanation?)
7.) "Set Fire to the Rain", Adele
8.) "Agadoo", the British "Euro pop" band Black Lace
9.) "Comfortably Numb", Pink Floyd
10.) "Don't Stop Me Now", Queen
11.) "I Want to Break Free", Queen
12.) "Insomnia", the British electronic group Faithless
13.) "Just the Way You Are", Bruno Mars
14.) "Mr. Brightside", The Killers
15.) "Paradise City", Guns N' Roses
16.) "Viva La Vida", Coldplay
17.) "Who Wants to Live Forever", Queen
18.) "Your Song", Elton John
19.) "Anything", Luther Vandross
20.) "Born in the U.S.A." or "Born to Run", Bruce Springsteen . . . (--It's unclear why these songs are grouped together like this.)
Okay, while we're on that topic, check this out:
