Does Justin really care?

As I was looking up a restaurant I need to go to later this week on Google Maps, I decided (as I often do) to zoom in for a street view. I find this really helpful to get a visual of the exact area I am going to. I know that some time ago Google started blurring faces to better deal with privacy issues brought on by their street views. This is mostly an automated process, although I know that Google will sometimes remove information if specifically requested to do so as well.  Which brings us back to my street view, and what seems like a funny application of this technology:

I mean, was this really necessary? Did Justin Timberlake request it specifically? What about his name? We clearly know it is him. And why didn’t Mila Kunis get the blur treatment?
