In just a handful of Saturday Night Live appearances, Justin Timberlake has already made more memorable moments than many A-list actors who’ve headlined the long-running sketch comedy show.

The latest water-cooler skit featuring JT aired last Saturday, when a leotard-clad Justin appeared as part of an all-male trio attempting to film a Beyoncé video, much to the displeasure of the superstar singer, who was the episode’s featured musical guest.

So when OK! caught up with Beyoncé at Tuesday night’s party in NYC for Gotham magazine, everyone just had to know: How did they convince Justin to do the skit?

"Justin actually came by, he just happened to be in town," explained Beyoncé, whose new album, I am… Sasha Fierce was released yesterday. "They talked to me about this skit. And I said, you know I’m not sure if I want to do it because I have to hone my performance, but the moment they called and said Justin Timberlake is going to be a part of this, I said I have to do this. He is hilarious, I’m so grateful, we had the best time; it was so difficult to not laugh."

Another person who Beyonce admires is President-elect Barack Obama. And, she said on Monday, you can look for her at his inauguration ceremony in D.C. in January.

"I know I’m definitely going to be there, I want to be there with him," she said. "I’m not sure if I’ll be performing, but I’d love to."

Until then, the newlywed singer has the holidays to look forward to. And for Beyoncé, that means some good home cooking with her family.

"For Thanksgiving my mother usually cooks," says Beyoncé. "It’s just like anyone else’s Thanksgiving. It’s actually my favorite holiday because it’s not about anything but giving back, giving thanks for all our blessings. Hopefully I’ll try to make some type of pie, I’m not the best cook, but I think I’m ready to try something."
