Why did her husband say "First of all, you’re married"? Is it a joke?
Yes, that's correct! The speaker was complimenting Justin Timberlake, a singer, in front of her husband. He makes a joke, saying "first of all, you're married," to remind her that she shouldn't be too admiring of other men. "First of all" is often used to introduce a series of phrases, often to make a point about something. Ex: A: Should we have sushi for dinner today? B: First of all, all restaurants are closed because of the holiday. Second of all, you don't even like raw fish.
