Morris Day Says "Prince Would Be Proud" of Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl Tribute
Morris Day co-signs JT’s performance
Other than the actual game, Prince was the biggest pop culture story of Super Bowl LII. On Saturday morning, news leaked that Justin Timberlake was going to use a Prince hologram during his Super Bowl halftime performance.
