Justin Timberlake showed off his soft side during his recent concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. No, no, not because superstars like Beyoncé (who was there to watch her man, Jay Z, on-stage with the headliner) and Taylor Swift were in the audience; rather, it all went down when a boy looking all dapper in his suit and tie caught JT’s attention and the singer stopped the show.
There was a little back-and-forth between the 10-year-old super-fan — who had a gift for his idol — and Timberlake, who shared with the crowd what was going on.
“You’re 10, you’ve been watching me since you were two,” he laughs. Justin opened the gift to reveal a bowtie and JT got a little choked up when the boy starts to cry.
“Hey, man, greatest gift ever,” Timberlake says. “Because a gentleman can never have too many bowties… I might have to wear that on Christmas day.”
Justin adds: “I love you, kiddo,” before walking towards his band, needing a bit of a timeout. “Sh*t, that got me.”
And it’ll get to you too. Watch the video above (our apologies in advance for the neck pain you might get from the first half of it), but if you don’t want your co-workers to keep asking you “What’s wrong?” after you cry them a river all day, save it for home. Tear.
