Justin Timberlake Pays Tribute to Grandparents in New "Mirrors" Video

Justin Timberlake has been breaking hearts all over the world for years, and thanks to his new video, hearts are breaking again ... but for a very different reason.

On Tuesday, the same day that his long-awaited album "The 20/20 Experience" dropped, the 32-year-old superstar released the video for his second single off the record, "Mirrors."

The 8-minute long clip follows the trials and tribulations of a couple, from the time they meet as teenagers until the share their elderly life together. It's a sweet story showing the ups and downs of true love ... and was inspired by his grandparents.

The video opens with the tribute "For William and Sadie" (bottom middle), referring to JT's mom Lynn's (bottom left) parents who were married for 63 years before William died on December 29th of last year. We see their courtship mimicked, with it appearing that the elderly man in the video has passed on and his widow is remembering their life together, the good and the bad.

Eventually, the grandma drops her wedding band, only for Justin to catch it, possibly symbolizing his commitment to carry on their love through his own marriage to Jessica Biel. 

The singer had been close to his grandpa his whole life -- using his first name for Justin's "William Rast" clothing line, and even flying pieces of his wedding cake from Italy to Tennessee when William was too ill to attend the ceremony last October.
