Justin Timberlake wore a blonde wig to receive his Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Award from Harvard University.

The 'SexyBack' singer looked comfortable in the tightly permed hairpiece as he received the honour during a ceremonial roast from the prestigious American university's Hasty Pudding Theatrical group's producers Stephen L. Rola and Kelly M. Conley on Friday night (05.02.10).

Justin - who was accompanied on/off girlfriend Jessica Biel - laughed as he was told: "This year's Man of the Year is a triple threat. He sings, he dances and he goes straight to DVD."

The 29-year-old pop star also had to endure a succession of 'people from his past' as spoof versions of Madonna, former 'N Sync bandmate Lance Bass and a fat-suited, pigtail-wearing Britney Spears took to the stage at Harvard's New College Theatre.

But Justin - who walked away with his silver Pudding Pot wearing a bra with two gift boxes attached to the cups as well as his wig - took all the jokes in good spirit, even the jibes at ex-girlfriend Britney.

He said: "Funnily enough, every time I've hosted 'Saturday Night Live' I've ended up in drag at least once. I love stuff like this."

He also described winning the prize as "cooler than any Grammy or Emmy".

The annual award from the prestigious Massachusetts college is given to entertainers who have made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment".

Previous recipients include Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Bruce Willis and Christopher Walken.

Anne Hathaway received the women's honour last month.
