Justin Timberlake will be part of the Super Sunday spectacle

  • Super Bowl LII

This time around, though, Timberlake assured the media that this time around, there will be no special guests joining him onstage.

TMZ caught up to Fatone before the January 14 playoff games and asked about the possibility of him and the other members joining their old band mate on stage.

"I mean, yeah, it's kind of like that thing where my main objective is that he become a great person", said Timberlake. 'And so that has been sort of the ethos of inspiration behind putting the set list together'.

Justin Timberlake was everything you thought he would be - charming, funny, and friendly - but he isn't giving to much away about his plans for the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show.

He refused to reveal any specific details about his performance, but said not to expect any special guest appearances from Janet Jackson or *NSYNC. The now-infamous wardrobe malfunction was the biggest news story for weeks, even at a time when the nation had launched into war in Iraq.

As the halftime entertainer, it's understandable that Timberlake would avoid picking a side in the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl halftime performer does not want his son ever playing football.


He fielded plenty of questions about his friendship with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who will lead his team against the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday's game.

Timberlake's press conference also covered his plans for his forthcoming halftime performance, which will be his third. He first performed in 2001 when 'N Sync performed alongside Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Mary J. Blige and Nelly.

As for Prince, Timberlake called him "the greatest all-around musician I can think of in popular culture (and) a huge influence on me".

"I actually texted Tom before the AFC championship game and said, "I'm going to the Super Bowl - are you going to the Super Bowl?' just to get him fired up", Timberlake said".

"I'd say he's on my list". "I get to walk the hallowed, sacred ground of Paisley Park".

The 37-year-old continued, but dialed back his adamance a bit.

"He will never play football", the singer told reporters on Thursday. "That's one thing I've enjoyed doing a lot". I've been running routes, too.
