Local DJ tries to meet Justin Timberlake

MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A local Memphian has made it her mission to meet Justin Timberlake.

"I'm going to tweet him a reason everyday for him to meet me," said Michelle Lewis.

He does not even have to wear a suit and tie. Lewis became what some are calling a "stalkarazzo"

Lewis is using Twitter to try and entice Timberlake into a one-on-one meeting.

Lewis, a DJ on FM100, got the idea to meet Timberlake.

"It was a joke. I was sitting in the office with my boss," explained Lewis.

The joke has snowballed.

With support from people like Memphis Mayor A C Wharton and the Grizzlies, she is even riding in race cars.

Lewis, from New York, has been in Memphis not quite a year. She figured Timberlake would be available in his own hometown.

"I hear such phenomenal stories about how he's pro-Memphis, a good ole Southern Boy, and a gentleman," stated Lewis.

While there is not a doubt about that, Timberlake is not too keen on doing interviews.

"All we're really looking for from him is ... Okay, just film the reaction of him walking into the room, giving me a hug, looking at the camera, and going she did it Memphis. I'm going to kill it at the FedExForum tonight," said Lewis.

When asked if Timberlake had responded yet to Lewis' deluge of tweets, her answer was clear.

"No answer on Twitter. No nothing," said Lewis.
