Justin Timberlake recently received an Innovation Awards at the iHeartRadio ceremony. In a speech, he thanked his wife Jessica Biel, who is currently pregnant with their first child.
“You can’t have innovation without creations, so finally I want to thank my best friend, my favourite collaborator, my wife Jessica at home who’s watching,” he told the audience. “Honey, I can’t wait to see our greatest creation yet. Don’t worry, Daddy’s headed home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on.”
Justin, 34, became emotional when he saw the tribute video and expressed his love for everyone who spoke in it.
“If you’re a young person, like I used to be, and you’re at home watching and you’re being called weird, or you’re being called different, or whatever the hell you’re being called, I’m here tonight to tell you, your critics do not count. Their words will fade. You won’t,” he empowered them. “Stay foolish, stay hungry. Dream, work hard and who knows, maybe someday, you’ll find yourself standing on a stage and maybe someday somebody will be giving you an award calling you an innovator.”
