Super Bowl selfie kid already set for interview on GMA
When Justin Timberlake decided it was selfie time at the end of his halftime show at the Super Bowl, he turned one teenager into a viral sensation.
Ryan McKenna, a 7th-grader from Hingham, Mass, saw Timberlake coming and got his phone ready for a once-in-a-lifetime moment and snapped a selfie with the performer:

McKenna spoke with the St. Paul Pioneer Press after his viral moment and says his phone is nearly dead from all the attention.
“It’s been so crazy,” McKenna said. “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,” McKenna added. “I’ve gotten so many notifications. I’ve got like 36 Snapchats, like 21 DMs, and like 150 follower requests on Instagram.”
McKenna is already set for an appearance on “Good Morning America,” which could delay his return home and back to school. That’s a pretty cool reason for missing class.
