Will Smith joins Instagram, teases Justin Timberlake about dangers of Super Bowl

When the NFL announced in October that Justin Timberlake will perform at halftime of Super Bowl LII, one of the actor-pop star's first promises was no wardrobe malfunctions, with or without Janet Jackson by his side.

Timberlake, 36, is expected next year to release his first full-length album since 2013, a project his Super Bowl performance will only help in generating buzz.

Over the weekend, West Philly's own Will Smith officially joined Instagram. It's a bold step for the 49-year-old actor, who previously relied exclusively on a Facebook page to reach his fans.

One of the first people to congratulate Smith was Justin Timberlake.

Smith, who already has 2.4 million followers, sent Timberlake a special message back.
