Justin Timberlake claims he isn’t ready for marriage, but he may be thinking about it a bit. Just a tiny bit.

Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, Timberlake did more than merely sing his hit song, “SexyBack.” He commented on the lingering issue of popping the question to girlfriend, Cameron Diaz.

After the performance, DeGeneres brought up “the rumor that you and Cameron are engaged.”

“The only reason I need to know,” DeGeneres said, “(is) I need to know, should I get a bridesmaid dress now or not?”

“Know what?” Timberlake said. “Go ahead and reserve one.”

As the crowd burst into cheers, DeGeneres asked when she’d get to wear it. The answer was about four years shorter than Diana Bianchi has been alive.

“The only thing is,” Timberlake said, “you’ll have to stay the same size for the next 15 years.”

Ok. But are they at least engaged at the moment? Nope. “We’re not engaged,” JT replied, before joking, “She hasn’t given me a ring. I’ve waited for her to get down on one knee and ask.”

Timberlake also spoke about his ‘N Sync bandmate Lance Bass, who recently came out.

“That must’ve been a huge thing for him,” said DeGeneres, noting that Bass kept his being gay a secret for fear of jeopardizing the group’s success.

Said Timberlake, “Let’s all be honest. I don’t think we didn’t know. Lance is one of my greatest friends. I’m more happy for him than I’ve ever been. … He gets to live his life the way he wants to live his life.”

Just don’t get him started on Taylor Hicks.
