Justin Timberlake played around inside U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis ahead of his Super Bowl LII halftime performance here Sunday, but his son Silas won't be taking the field anytime soon.
Justin Timberlake right now is working with his 2-year-old son on his manners. The response was immediate: "He will never play football". "That's a big deal in our house. It's like, one thing at a time". "My band, the Tennessee Kids, are my special guests".
"Minnesotans have totally debunked the rumor that us Southerners thought that people from the north were not as nice as us, it's been great.I mean I wish you would turn the heat up a little for us, but it's been great", he said at the press conference.
Then, Pink will make her debut Super Bowl appearance when she takes America's biggest stage to sing "The Star Spangled Banner".
Another member of the entertainment media preempted his questions by leading a chorus of "Happy Birthday" for Timberlake, who turned 36 on Wednesday. "I don't think it's my job to do that because you value the relationships that you do have with people". "I'm not giving away anything else, so don't even try it", he said. After she got him to admit, "I love Tom Brady".
His first Super Bowl halftime show was in 2001 as part of 'N Sync. However, his initial response may be seen as a snub to the National Football League, who invited the Cry Me a River hitmaker to be their star performer 14 years after his controversial "Nipplegate" performance with Janet Jackson.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday to promote the highly-anticipated gig, he didn't get a question about the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction that rocked the world - but most certainly ruled out the possibility of the band hitting the stage together.
He added: "I always knew I always wanted to write a song for him, but I didn't know it was going to be a song to him".
