Justin Timberlake's son will 'never' play football, and he's not alone

Timberlake showed up at a news conference Thursday in Minneapolis to promote the halftime show during this nation's most spectacular football game of all time until next February.

Timberlake will be performing in the Super Bowl for the first time in 14 years since the Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction" incident.

The "Filthy" singer is set to headline the halftime show at the Super Bowl LII on Sunday, Feb. 4, at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He's been rehearsing inside the building throughout the week.

Justin Timberlake has just confirmed that there won't be an NSYNC or Janet Jackson reunion at the Super Bowl LII.

He did not give much detail on the performance itself, but hinted at some new heights for the NFL.

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 have three grandsons-and people may wonder why a retired player would be so adamant about concussions and making the environment safer-I don't know if they'll play football".

When Timberlake was asked about his son, he bragged about his speed, but had some thought about him playing football.

As the halftime entertainer, it's understandable that Timberlake would avoid picking a side in the Super Bowl. "But to top it off, I get to walk the hallowed, sacred ground of Paisley Park".

In an open letter to Justin Timberlake ahead of his return to the Super Bowl halftime show, the Parents Television Council says: "Break a leg".

In any case, Timberlake said he will not be joined onstage Sunday by 'N Sync, or Jackson. He also admitted he had a "man-crush" on Brady, the New England Patriots quarterback, complimenting his skills and hair. And I just wanted it to be honest.

But the infamous incident underlined how the halftime show and even the creative in-game advertisements have come to overshadow what is supposed to be a sporting event.

When the song was over, Timberlake said to him: "You get a little nervous when somebody's watching you sing, huh?"
