Cannes: on Wednesday, Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick performed Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” for screaming fans — unplugged and acoustic. They were promoting the new Dreamworks film “Trolls” set for a fall release. Dreamworks chief Jeffrey Katzenberg introduced them, and there was quite a bit of “Trolls” footage shown.
Not interested because it’s for kids? The movie seems to overcome that problem– it’s quite ingenious. The animation is very, very complex and clever. Justin wrote new songs, too, including his current hit “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” which the deejay played when Timberlake and co walked the opening night red carpet.
Justin, of course, is a rock star. But Anna Kendrick remains an enigma. She has a great voice and has already had a chart hit with “Cups.” She sings a lot in “Trolls” and is terrific. She needs to make an album already!
