Justin Timberlake

STOPS MEDIA TOUR

For 13-Year-Old Brain Surgery Survivor

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Timberlake has a new biggest fan ... a 13-year-old brain surgery survivor ... who's so impressive that JT stopped his entire media tour yesterday to spend some quality time with her.

JT was being rushed through an NYC building on his way into a live radio interview Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Tina DiLascio -- who told Justin her daughter Giana is a "Make-a-Wish" kid who underwent brain surgery last year to fix a serious blockage in her pituitary gland.

Justin was so impressed -- he stopped in his tracks -- and asked if he could meet Giana, who was waiting outside the building with her brother.  We're told JT waited patiently as Tina grabbed Giana ... brought her inside ... and introduced the two.

Tina tells TMZ ...  Giana and Justin chatted for several minutes. JT asked if she watched the VMAs and she lit up, telling Justin he's "The next Michael Jackson" ... to which JT bowed his head and said, "Thank you."

Giana asked if she could take a pic with Justin, who agreed ... but only under one condition -- "Only if you make it your screen saver!" 

Eventually, JT had to leave ... but not before giving Giana a big hug and telling her to "be well."

And in case you're wondering ... the pic IS her screen saver now.

That's a classy dude. Don't like his music but that's just a nice act of kindness for a fan.

Nice gesture , but what would anyone else do if someone with a Make A Wish Child was asking to meet them,
And how lucky for him , she supposedly said he would be the next MJ.
Isnt that what JT has been trying to get people to say for years.
I think the proper response would have been
"there is only one Michael Jackson" and JT has been imitating his moves for yrs

"a 13-year-old brain surgery survivor ... ... who's so impressive that JT stopped"

TMZ, please check your grammar. This should read:

"...who's so impressed.."

JT, I think, is a good guy. Back in his N'Sync days, my older daughter was a huge fan of his. Now that he has matured, I actually like his music. He has always been very talented, and at the same time, wasn't ever really out causing trouble like many of the other BOYS that young girls crush over today.
