The iHeartRadio Music Awards people gave Justin "I'm so old" Timberlake their Innovator Award on Sunday, and, in return, he talked for six minutes. Pretty fair tradeoff, if you ask me.

In his super-sweet acceptance speech, J.T. managed to thank a whole bunch of people, including Tom Ford, who makes a surprisingly energetic presenter. He quoted Teddy Roosevelt. He told us weird kids it's okay if people call us names because we're awesome. He said this about Jessica Biel: "You can't have innovation without creation, so finally, I want to thank my best friend, my favorite collaborator, my wife, Jessica, at home, who's watching. Honey, I can't wait to see our greatest creation yet (opens in new tab). Don't worry, Daddy's heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on." He also wore a bright blue suit the entire time.
