Justin Timberlake: 'My son will never play in the NFL'

Justin Timberlake: 'My son will never play in the NFL'

Timberlake is in Minneapolis for Sunday's Super Bowl, 14 years after he last appeared during American football title match and triggered one of the halftime show's most notorious moments.

Timberlake said he has one goal for the game: to get people dancing.

During a recent press conference, Timberlake reportedly nixed the idea, and added that only his band The Tennessee Kids would be joining him on stage. I am not deemed a "trustworthy figure" amongst the Shadowy League Figures who organize this massive endeavor; as such, the halftime show is as big a mystery to me as it is to you.

Asked if he would support an NFL career by his son, Timberlake replied without hesitation: "He will never play football". "It's kind of like that thing where my main objective is that he become a great person", Timberlake clarified. However, when questioned about his two-year-old son Silas, the 37-year-old singer's response was surprisingly not so keen.

"Right now, we are just working on our manners", the singer said. Other rumors suggested that Janet Jackson - Timberlake's partner from the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" episode in 2004 - might make an appearance as well.

Superstar crooner Justin Timberlake will take the stage during halftime of Super Bowl LII in Minnesota. That's a big deal in our house right now. The NFL's handling of player concussions and the emergence of condition chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease resulting from contact sports such as football and boxing, has seen the organisation come under increased scrutiny over safety.

As for Prince, Timberlake called him "the greatest all-around musician I can think of in popular culture (and) a huge influence on me". The commercials weren't memorable, and the halftime show, performed by Lady Gaga, was fine.

Is he lying? We'll find out Sunday. Maybe, maybe not, but I know it'll definitely break into the top five.

Timberlake is one of the most popular and talented musicians in the industry, so there's no question this Super Bowl's halftime show is going to be incredible, but will it top the following five shows? It's part mountain man, part burning man, and part midtown banker man-finished off with a pair of Nikes no less-which is really all the vibes Timberlake's given us so far in his Man of the Woods-related music videos. "There, I said it", he joked.
