"So basically, I knew that I wanted to end the performance with "Can't Stop the Feeling" just because I how people respond to that song", he said.

"I have the iPhone 6, and that thing's just slow, and it shut off, so that's when all the memes formed", he said.

Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl halftime show had been met with mixed reactions, but the event spurred a 534% sales gain for his music. For the February 9 episode, Ryan McKenna, AKA the Super Bowl selfie kid, stopped by to chat with Ellen Degeneres, 60.

Enjoying the perks of new-found fame, Ryan taped an interview for Ellen's Friday (09Feb18) show earlier this week, and spoke about the moment he got the snap.

Ryan became an internet sensation after he posed with Justin during the halftime show of the Superbowl and quickly focused on his phone rather than the superstar.

McKenna made his way down to Timberlake a few rows down. When Ellen joked that Ryan will now forever be part of Justin's life and "he'll send you money", the singer laughed before revealing a generous gesture which left the teenager in tears. "I'd like to invite you and your family to come".

The detention of Kotey and Elsheikh will end a yearslong manhunt by British intelligence and security agencies, as well as a U.S. The US official did not give any information on the condition of the two or what would happen to them.

As if the opportunity to take a picture with Timberlake during the Super Bowl and to receive a phone call from him while appearing on "Ellen" weren't enough, Timberlake then dropped the news that he was inviting McKenna and his family to see him perform live in concert in Boston.

And the 37-year-old hunk isn't the only one who gave the teenager a gift as National Football League continued to spread the love by giving him a VIP experience to a Patriots home game next season, as well as four tickets to a game, and four pre-game field passes.

"Oh my God, I can't believe this", Ryan said, tearing up the moment Justin called his name over the phone.

"Ryan, I look forward to meeting you and our second selfie together", Timberlake said before signing off.

This makes us question: When is Timberlake's TD Garden show, because we want to see his and McKenna's second selfie.
