Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl incident: anybody remembers which was the song?!
It's been 13 years now but we still can't get over it.
If someone says “Janet Jackson”, our thoughts go to that American Super Bowl.
It was during the halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII, the 1st February 2004, when Janet Jackson's right breast was exposed at the end of her performance, after Justin Timberlake pulled off a piece of Janet's costume.
The day after, today in 2004, TV network CBS apologized for its broadcast of the American Super Bowl, as well as all the parties involved did.
"I am sorry if anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance at the Super Bowl," Timberlake said of the incident. "It was not intentional and is regrettable."
MTV, which produced the halftime show for sister network CBS, issued a statement shortly after the game saying, "The tearing of Janet Jackson's costume was unrehearsed, unplanned, completely unintentional and was inconsistent with assurances we had about the content of the performance. MTV regrets this incident occurred and we apologize to anyone who was offended by it”.
We know, Super Bowl is a huge window for adverts as well as for artists that every year take part in the show.
Do you think that the 72,000 fans in Reliant Stadium and an estimated 100 million watching around the world remember the song of that performance or Janet Jackson's right breast?
