Don't you just love a good reunion? Justin Timberlake and the Selfie Kid have once again reunited right here backstage at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival. Ryan McKenna, better known as Selfie Kid has surprisingly made a name for himself after the epic shot he snapped of he and J.T. during his halftime performance at the 2018 SuperBowl. McKenna, who is a Massachusetts native, admitted that he certainly did not expect to have such a cool moment with the "Can't Stop the Feeling" singer that night.
"I just thought to myself, 'I'll never get this opportunity again in my whole life," he said during an interview with St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I just went for it."
McKenna went on to add that after the initial selfie, his phone was ringing off the hook!
"I don't even know what to think. All my friends have been texting me and stuff. It's insane. My phone is almost dead. I've gotten so many notifications. I've got like 36 Snapchats, like 21 DMs and like 150 follower requests on Instagram."
The photo which instantly went viral was definitely the talk of 2018.
The backstage reunion tonight was nothing short of amazing. At this point, we think Justin should just expect to put on his best fit and run into the selfie at major events.
The two took a moment to catch up on what we presume life is like in 8th grade for Ryan and Justin's super cool performance with Shawn Mendes tonight. Either way, we're happy to have been there and caught the special moment between the two. Can we be invited to the next reunion guys?
