6 Weird Celeb Food Habits and Diet Tips

When recording artists host listening parties for journalists to preview their upcoming albums, guests might expect to be served a couple of finger foods and a drink at best. But Justin Timberlake is no ordinary recording artist, and his forthcoming Man of the Woods album, due out February 2, will be his first album to be released since 2013's The 20/20 Experience.

So he threw a fancy listening party with fancy food in New York City and took the party people by extreme surprise... because the tasting menu included insects. They were gussied-up insects, of course — ants served with black garlic and rose oil and grasshoppers served with Swedish aebleskiver pancakes.

Cameras and phones weren't allowed in, but that didn't stop the menu from leaking out later.

While this was a shocking menu for JT, it was almost par for the course for its creator Rene Redzepi from the internationally acclaimed restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, who loves to play with different preparations of ants on his tasting menus presented at pop-ups around the world for triple-digit prices.

The party might not have fit everyone's definition of bringing sexy back... but, shall we say, it was sure protein-packed?
