Did he go against the late singer's wishes?
Justin Timberlake's eagerly anticipated halftime show at Super Bowl LII has become the subject of some controversy after his tribute to Prince seemingly went against the late singer's wishes for his legacy. It wasn't the hologram that was previously suggested, but it came close.
When fans heard that Justin and his team were thinking of a holographic tribute to the deceased legend for the halftime show, given that the Super Bowl LII game was being held in his hometown of Minneapolis, there was an outpouring of opposition towards it. Drummer Sheila E., a close friend of Prince, was one of the most vocal about it.

Justin Timberlake has admitted he has accepted being known as a pop artist, but it motivated him to make music that just feels right to him
Justin Timberlake admitted he was inspired to be open with his music after realising he may not shake his 'pop star' label.
The 'SexyBack' singer was initially a little disappointed when reviews for his 2002 debut solo album 'Justified' kept him in the more mainstream genre despite his efforts in pushing for a more R&B-influenced sound after his time with boy band Nsync.
Speaking with Zane Lowe on 'Beats 1', he said: ''I was like, 'Wow I really made an R&B album.' I really wanted to make an R&B album.

Timberlake was involved in the infamous Janet Jackson 'wardrobe malfunction' back in 2004.
Ahead of his upcoming headlining spot at the Super Bowl half-time show, Justin Timberlake has recalled the infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’ incident with Janet Jackson that happened the last time he took part in it.
In a hilarious but rather shocking incident during the 2004 Super Bowl’s half-time performance, Timberlake ripped off the right panel of Janet Jackson’s bodice costume, but instead of showing a red lace bra, the choreography went wrong and her breast was revealed to a stunned audience of 14 million viewers – and that was just in the States.
Although both artists apologised profusely for the incident, infamously branded a ‘wardrobe malfunction’, it was Jackson who got heavily fined and then blacklisted by American radio and MTV.

He releases the first set of tour dates for 'Man of the Woods'.
With the release of his fifth studio album 'Man of the Woods' coming next month, Justin Timberlake gives his fans a taste of what to expect from the following world tour - which begins this Spring - in a video clip showing him doing some preparation.
The singer has already spoken about how his Tennesseean roots have had a huge impact on his latest record, and that is something he's eager to demonstrate in his forthcoming live shows. It seems he wants to create a visual spectacle, reflecting the outdoorsy theme of the music.
It's nothing like the country vibe we were anticipating.
Whatever we were expecting from Justin Timberlake, it's safe to say we weren't expecting this. Far from a departure of his usual pop sound, the singer has reverted to type with his brand new song 'Filthy' - and it's about as far away from the country sound he hinted at as you can get.
'Filthy' is very much 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' Justin Timberlake rather than the country-focused sound we were expecting from his forthcoming new album 'Man of the Woods'. Co-written by Timbaland, Danja, James Fauntleroy and Lawrence Dopson, the track comes alongside a very futuristic video.

Timbaland has suggested he had to win over some of Justin Timberlake's team when he worked on the production for his chart topping 2006 single 'SexyBack'
The super producer was behind the desk for the singer's lead single - taken from his second album 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' - and while he immediately believed in the track, others weren't so sure.
Speaking to the 'Complex's Blueprint' video series, he said: ''I knew it was a feeling. Everybody was like, 'That ain't it.' I said, 'Yes, it is, that's the one' ... The beauty of a hit is not knowing it's a hit but you know it feels good.''
