Justin Timberlake breaks it down during the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show where the Philadelphia Eagles take on the New England Patriots during Super Bowl. Philadelphia Eagles defeated the defending Super Bowl champions New England Patriots, 41–33, to win their first Super Bowl, and denied the Patriots a record-tying sixth Super Bowl win.
Speaking of his fifth studio album in 2016, Timberlake stated, “I think where I grew up in America has a lot of influence. Growing up in Tennessee—very central of the country—Memphis is known as the birthplace of rock & roll, but also the home of the blues, but Nashville’s right down the street so there’s a lot of country music.”
In following interviews, Timberlake confirmed working with producers Timbaland and Pharrell Williams, while stating, “It sounds more like where I’ve come from than any other music I’ve ever made… It’s Southern American music. But I want to make it sound modern – at least that’s the idea right now.”
His fifth studio album Man of the Woods was released on February 2, 2018, two days before he headlined the Super Bowl LII halftime show in Minneapolis, Minnesota on February 4, where Timberlake performed a medley of his songs and featured a duet of “I Would Die 4 U” with a video projection of late singer Prince on screen.
Man of the Woods is named after his son Silas, whose name means “from the forest.” An accompanying tour of the same name shall begin the following month. Its first single “Filthy” was released on January 5 along with its accompanying video directed by Mark Romanek.
The electro-funk song has reached number 9 in the US and number 5 in Canada. The songs “Supplies”, “Say Something” featuring Chris Stapleton and “Man of the Woods” were also released along with music videos ahead of the album.

Fergie’s National Anthem rendition during NBA All-Star game is mocked by fans after the Former Black Eyed Peas singer performed a ‘sexed’ up version of the US anthem. The performance went horribly wrong with fans quick to call it one of the worst renditions ever.
The former Black Eyed Peas star delivered her own take on the anthem at the NBA All-Star game on Sunday leaving fans, players and the A-List crowd stunned at what they were hearing.
Many fans took to twitter to openly mock Fergie’s performance with a series of animated gifs and memes.
Fergie has since issued an apology, telling TMZ: “I’ve always been honoured and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”
Some of the viewers had a more positive view of the rendition. Speaking at half time, former NBA player Charles Barkley said, “I need a cigarette after that”, while Shaquille O’Neal defended Fergie’s performance, describing it as “different” and “sexy”
Among the stars in the stand was Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel who were seen to be snickering as Fergie was singing.
Chloe Kardhasian seemed bewildered by what was happening and took to twitter to share her feelings tweeting: ‘This All Star opening is confusing me. WTF is going on? Anyone?’
Beyonce and her daughter Blue Ivy were also among the crowd to watch the big game.

The ‘Team Lebron’ versus ‘Team Curry’ game itself didn’t disappoint with a close game with the former managing win the game with a close 148-145 score.

I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.
