SELFIE KID TOPS MOST-TWEETED ABOUT MOMENTS OF JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE’S HALFTIME SHOW – (02/06/2018)

There were a lot of tweet-able moments from Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime show last night, but the most-tweeted moment involved #SelfieKid.

According to data from Twitter, Justin performing “Can’t Stop the Feeling” in the stands of Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium – and taking a selfie with a young fan – topped the list of most-tweeted about moments. The fan has since been identified as a 13-year-old Massachusetts native named Ryan McKenna.

Looking awkward in front of the cameras, he fiddled with his phone. The result was a string of memes. McKenna was actually shooting a video of Timberlake, but when the megastar slid up next to him, he was a little tied up. Specifically, he was trying to launch his camera app to document the moment. Unfortunately, he had equipment issues. “At first I tried to get a selfie with him, and my phone died, and then it turned back on,” he explained to ABC.

The second most-tweeted moment was Justin playing piano and singing “Until the End of Time” alongside a projection of Prince. Coming in third was Justin performing “Suit & Tie” with a full marching band.

During the live performance, between 8:10 p.m. ET and 8:40 p.m. ET, there were a total of 1.8 million tweets about the #PepsiHalftime show.

McKenna described the “crazy” viral moment on Monday’s episode of Good Morning America. According to the young breakout star, McKenna “didn’t really know” the Timberlake selfie was going to happen. “There was a Super Bowl halftime lady and she, like, said that we were in a special section,” he explained. “He just came up, and I just, like, jumped right in there with him. And he stopped right in our row so it was perfect.”

KYLIE JENNER DEBUTS CHICAGO WEST IN BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT – (02/06/2018)

Multiple mysteries solved, for the price of one. On Sunday, when Kylie Jenner made the surprise reveal that she’d given birth to a baby girl, she also introduced her sister Kim Kardashian West’s infant daughter, Chicago, to the world.

The 20-year-old lip-kit mogul provided fans with a note that explained why she’d kept her baby with Travis Scott under wraps, and provided everyone with a mini-documentary about her pregnancy.

  • In the video, the still-pregnant Jenner can be seen cradling Chicago. “She looks completely different,” Jenner says in the video. “She’s so little.”
  • During the special moment, Jenner’s BFF asks Kardashian if she’s decided on a name. “I think we’re gonna go with Chicago,” Kardashian says.
  • There were also other revelations made in the video, including insight into how motherhood had been her plan for a while. Her friends said she’s actually wanted a baby since she was 15, and Woods gave fans a deeper insight into Jenner’s mindset. 
  • “When you’re 20 years old, you’re just figuring out your life,” Woods says. “You don’t know what you want, you’re an indecisive teenager and you’re just becoming a young adult, and there was one thing that your mom knew for sure, and that was you.” 
  • Meanwhile, Jenner has not revealed her baby’s name, but internet sleuths are pointing to a post momager Kris Jenner made on the day after her daughter was born (she was born February 1st): “So cute! One of my favorite @kyliecosmetics shades!! Posie K is launching as a limited edition trio set to celebrate the second anniversary! Feb 5 on KylieCosmetics.com,” she wrote.
  • Viewers think that the girl’s name may be Posie or Mariposa, which is Spanish for butterfly.

KRIS JENNER BREAKS CHRISSY TEIGEN’S TABLE: Whoops! As Kylie Jenner’s baby news took over the internet, her momager Kris Jenner was whooping it up over at Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s house, watching the big game. But it looks like Jenner may have had a little too much fun. Teigen shared a shot of a broken brown table on Snapchat, explaining that Jenner fell into it. She also showed a shot of the 62-year-old icing her arm after the incident. Very extremely valuable right now. If anyone is willing to make a bid on this we’re willing to let it go,” Kris quipped.
