The most awkward 22 minutes of Justin Timberlake's life took place Thursday morning in Minneapolis when he answered a bunch of strange questions during a press conference previewing the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show.

Here's the video, with some of the awkward moments and JT's responses below. 

How Tom Brady's man crush on him affects his bromance with Jimmy Fallon

"Nothing could ever come between Jimmy and I."

Does he have a man crush on Tom Brady?

"I'd say he's on my list. The feeling is reciprocated... if you want to make this official." 

When a reporter started singing Happy Birthday to him

"This is very nice," Timberlake said with an awkward laugh. 

Then another reporter sang a different version of Happy Birthday

"That's a good one," he said before looking in the complete opposite direction.

That same lady then called him a "child star"

"I'd rather you not call me that." 

What the line "I love your pink, you like my purple" in his new album means

"That's none of your business, sir." 

When a reporter whispered in the microphone trying to get him to root for the Patriots

"Go Pack Go," Timberlake muttered. 

In addition to the awkward moments, Timberlake praised Minnesotans for their kindness and said Prince is probably the "greatest all-around musician" he's ever seen.
