Wardrobe Malfunction

Post placeholder image

Until today, I have not talked about Janet Jackson exposing her breast to the world during the half-time show at the Super Bowl last Sunday. Yet, people keep coming here and leaving comments. I wonder if they realize that they are commenting on a post I wrote about last year’s half-time show. Oh well. As for what I think about the whole ordeal, I think it was intentional and not a wardrobe malfunction. I also think others beyond Janet Jackson knew what was going on; yes even Justin Timberlake. He is not being real by pretending to be upset and shocked by the exposure. That’s not how he sounded in an interview shortly after he came off stage. Something tells me he’s just trying to cover his ass as he’s afraid of what the backlash might do to his career. Finally, while I think that the act was in poor taste, I think the whole controversy is overblown. Damn, it was just a breast! And oh yeah, don’t give me that crap about turning a wholesome event into a strip show. At its core, football (a sport I like) is a sport where grown men beat the crap out of each other. There is nothing wholesome about that. Particularly when you find out that quite a few of these men go home and abuse either their spouse or children. So instead of calling to complain to the FCC about what happened, people need to be calling to request that the agency not waste the taxpayer’s dollars investigating. Really what is there to investigate? Just hand out a fine that would deter future stunts like this and move on. Daytime television (i.e. soap operas) with its almost daily episodes of simulated sex is more detrimental to the youth of today (who trust me are watching), than a half a second glimpse of Ms. Jackson left breast.

    It probably wasn’t intentional. I mean, JT was as surprised as everyone else. If it was intentional then why did Janet looked surprised? Soon as it happened she looked left and right and then down to her uncovered breast. Afterwards, she immediately folded her arms. If it was intentional then why did she cover herself up like that.
    People say that she wanted to do that to boost sales of her new album, but why would she need to do that? Has she ever needed to put her breast on the line to boost sales. C’mon, think about it, this is Janet Jackson we are talking about, not Michael.
    Oh and Justin looked stunned when it happened. He was like, “Damn! Janet you have some nice breasts, I mean breast.” He looked mesmerized like Britney never flashed him or something.

    Amen. Can we move on to the next scandal of the year? This is ridiculous.

    I wouldn’t say “quite a few” players beat their wives and kids. Where do you get that from?
    JT looked like an ass saying he was shocked and offended. That was clearly not an accident, and he didn’t seem to shocked at the time.
    If there wasn’t such a public backlash, I doubt the NFL would have done anything about it. They are, after all, a league sponsored by erection pills and scantily clad Coors twins.
    I feel bad for JC who has become a victim of guilt by association.
