Justin Timberlake is back

Justin Timberlake performs during halftime of the NFL Super Bowl 52 football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots Sunday Feb. 4 in Minneapolis

National Public Radio music critic Ann Powers said Monday that Justin Timberlake embodies "white male privilege" and that his Super Bowl halftime performance on Sunday was not "right for this moment".

This was Timberlake's third appearance at the Super Bowl, following his 2001 performance with N-Sync and his 2004 performance with Janet Jackson (maybe you know it better as the Super Bowl "Nipplegate"). The tribute was in reference to Prince's 2007 Super Bowl halftime performance. To that, I riddle you this - Timberlake's half time show was never going to be great because his discography is, aside from a crowning gem here and there, mostly empty and forgettable.

Songs like "Breeze off the Pond" and "Say Something", which features verses by Chris Stapleton, interpolate laid back melodies, thoughtful vocals and rugged guitar riffs to create that backwoods sense that the album fashions. Shortly after Timberlake's tribute, a lot of fans aired their frustrations and disappointments on Twitter.

Let us start with the Super Bowl Halftime Show, in which JT ripped through seemingly every hit in his ever-expanding catalog. Many fans of Prince were showing concern, as the "Purple Rain" singer once said he did not want to be made into a hologram.

Before the show, : "I've been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song".

Pop star Justin Timberlake paid tribute to Prince and took selfies with fans during his Super Bowl half-time show. Those things are all well and good, and believe me, I'll get around to watching Jenner's announcement video.

I think I'd probably leave the street poles where they were, but my team didn't win last night, so what do I know?

"I thought it was very predictable", O'Sullivan said.

It suggested it could make three quarter-point increases to the key rate over the coming three years, with the first possibly as soon as May.

"I came back to the house and flicked on the PC and my inbox just filled in". The "Cry Me A River" hitmaker certainly pulled out all of the slinky dance moves and stage transitions anyone could ask for.

"I sat there waiting in anticipation for NSYNC, Britney, Janet, anyone", sophomore English major Gaby D'Annunzio said.

Halfway through his performance, a large sheet was lifted behind the piano and an image of Prince appeared as Timberlake switched the song to Prince's "I Will Die For You" for a few measures. "Our people show up in below-zero temperatures and work their butts off for two weeks or more", he says.

Timberlake was unscathed by the whole thing while Jackson's career was ruined.

Timberlake is not free from controversy or mistakes.
