|Justin Timberlake was asked about a bromance with Tom Brady John Carlson Jersey , a possible `N Sync reunion and serenaded with ”Happy Birthday,” but the superstar didn’t get a question about the wardrobe malfunction that rocked the world during a press conference Thursday to promote his return to the Super Bowl halftime show.
Timberlake ruled out any chance his former boy band `N Sync would join him Sunday or other potential special guests would show up – including Janet Jackson herself. Timberlake revealed only that his band, The Tennessee Kids, would join him onstage and predicted a show that will include things ”never done before.”
”It’s a moment where you have the opportunity to bring so many people together through what I think is the greatest art form, which is music,” he said. ”And so that has been sort of the ethos of inspiration behind putting the set list together.”
”And, you know, I like to make dance music so I hope everyone is dancing,” he added.
Timberlake is returning to the halftime show 14 years after the ”wardrobe malfunction” with Jackson caused a national controversy. He was not asked about the incident during the press availability.
Timberlake was Jackson’s special guest during her performance when he ripped off a piece of her clothing and revealed her bare, pierced nipple. Timberlake later described it as an unintended ”wardrobe malfunction.” CBS, which aired the Super Bowl that year, drew a $550,000 fine from the Federal Communications Commission that was later overturned.
During his 20-minute press conference, Timberlake mentioned Jackson’s name when he spoke about who people thought he would invite as a guest during the halftime show. He also named Jay-Z, Chris Stapleton and `N Sync.
He also admitted he had a ”man-crush” on Brady, the New England Patriots quarterback, complimenting his skills and hair. But when asked if he was rooting for the Patriots or the Philadelphia Eagles, he punted: ”Go, Pack, go Authentic Alexander Radulov Jersey ,” he said, referencing the Green Bay Packers, who didn’t make the playoffs at all.
Timberlake will be making his third Super Bowl musical appearance – a record. He first performed in 2001 when `N Sync performed alongside Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Mary J. Blige and Nelly.
He praised Minneapolis-born Prince, calling the late superstar ”in my opinion, the greatest all-around musician I can think of in popular culture.”
”He’s a huge influence on me. … The time that I got to spend around him, with him, talking about music – those are memories that I will take with me forever because he’s always been such a big idol of mine,” Timberlake said.
Timberlake has a new album, ”Man of the Woods,” out Friday and will host a listening party Thursday night at Paisley Park, Prince’s old estate.
”There’s a lot of bucket list things that are happening this week for me and that’s definitely at the top of that list,” he said. ”I get to walk the hallowed, sacred ground of Paisley Park.”
Timberlake turned 37 years old on Wednesday, and some of the media serenaded him by singing ”Happy Birthday” at the Hilton Minneapolis’ Grand Ballroom.
When asked if he would let his son, Silas, perform at the Super Bowl and follow in his footsteps, Timberlake said, ”I’d rather not think about it because he’s about to turn three.”
”But (Silas) did come to rehearsals yesterday and I was shocked at how quickly he could cover 100 yards Braden Holtby Jersey ,” he said.
”Speed runs in our family. I’ve been running routes, too. I just want to throw this out there to (Patriots coach Bill) Belichick, `If all of your receivers go down I’ll be ready, so shoot me a text.”’
Morris Claiborne's T-shirt had three words printed on it that represent a new era in the New York Jets' secondary.
"New Jack City" is etched in sharp black letters and framed by a whited-out Manhattan-like skyline, closely resembling the artwork from the soundtrack to the 1991 hit action gangster movie.
It's the nickname defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson gave his group before last season 鈥?and it's the identity by which the likes of Claiborne, Trumaine Johnson, Buster Skrine, Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye want to be known.
"We want people to fear us when we walk out," Claiborne said after practice Tuesday. "We're going to walk out, we're going to talk noise and we're going to play on the edge, but not hurt the team. We're just going to go out there and leave it out there, from me to Tru to every guy in that room, Buster, everybody 鈥?we have the same mindset, and that's to go out and perform at a high level."
The Jets have struggled the past few seasons in the secondary, finishing 21st in pass defense last year.
Those days, this group of DBs is convinced, are over.
"We've just got to go make a statement," Claiborne said. "Each and every game, we've got to go out and make a statement. Control the airways. That's the best way I can put it."
Seattle had its "Legion of Boom" secondary with Richard Sherman leading the way Jamie Benn Jersey , and there have been lots of other colorful and intimidating defensive nicknames in the NFL over the years.
Steel Curtain. Doomsday Defense. Monsters of the Midway. Orange Crush. Purple People Eaters. New York Sack Exchange.
These Jets have a long way to go before getting anywhere close to securing their place in NFL lore.
"I feel like it still hasn't made it yet, but we're pounding away at it," said Claiborne, who added that all the defensive backs have the shirts. "So, for us right now, it's going out and laying it out there on the field. Put the name out there and let the people judge to see if it sticks or not."
The first step, though, is having the nickname itself.
"It's just a brotherhood that we have in our secondary, our camaraderie," Maye said. "It's the way we hang out with each other, the way we play with each other, just the style of play we have and just the type of attitude and mentality we carry."
The safety tandem of Adams and Maye is already considered one of the most promising in the league, with both looking to build off solid rookie seasons.
"You definitely have to have that swagger out there," Adams said, "that energy, running to the ball and just playing with that nasty mentality."
Adams has already established himself as a team leader, a guy who leads with emotion and intensity. He finished third on the Jets last year with 83 overall tackles and had two sacks, but is still searching for his first NFL interception.
Maye is bit quieter than Adams, preferring to lead mostly by example. He was fourth on the Jets with 76 tackles and had two INTs.
"He can be phenomenal," Adams said of Maye. "I think everybody can. As long as we continue to work at the little things John Tavares Jersey , continue to take to the coaching, the sky's the limit."
Maye is coming off offseason ankle surgery and has been gradually worked back onto the field. He's hoping to play some against the Giants on Friday night in the team's third preseason game, usually the last extensive action starters see before the regular season.
"I'm definitely itching to get out there," Maye said.
Claiborne was mostly solid as the Jets' No. 1 cornerback last season and re-signed with the Jets on a one-year deal. He'll likely be more of a 1-A this year with Johnson now in the mix.
After six seasons with the Rams, Johnson came to New York in March when he signed a whopping five-year, $72.5 million contract that included $34 million guaranteed. He was the Jets' biggest free-agent signing of the offseason, and he'll be expected to perform like an elite cornerback.
"Another playmaker in the back end, man," Adams said. "A lot of energy."
Johnson has 18 career interceptions, including a career-high seven in 2015. His presence gives coach Todd Bowles the luxury of having two experienced cornerbacks with good track records of covering other teams' top receivers. It will also allow Skrine to play more often as the team's nickel corner and in the slot, a role in which he has excelled during his career.
It's unclear how Johnson and Claiborne will be used in terms of coverages, but Claiborne is certain of one thing.
"I do know that we've got two corners who can match up with anybody in the league," he said.
Well, they've got the catchy nickname and the confidence to match.
In a few weeks, the Jets' "New Jack City" defensive backs will get their first chance to live up to their own lofty expectations.
"We're loaded with talent in the back end," Claiborne said. "It's all (on) what we do with it. We have all the pieces. We just have to find a way to put it together and go get some wins."
