Not a big deal

I think that this Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake thing is being blown out of proportion. It was a very fleeting thing, and from what I've heard and seen, it was just a mistake. Hey! It's LIVE TV. Things go wrong.

And I bet most people didn't even see it. I missed when it was live, and I went back to look at my TiVo, and (recorded at MEDIUM quality) you really couldn't see anything, plus they cut away really fast. I suppose that the folks who had invested in HD TV sets for the game got a return on part of their investment, but on regular TV, no big deal.

CBS probably had to apologize just as good form, but I hope they don't take it any further.

I wonder what the reaction would have been if Janet tore away Justin's pants and showed his goodies?

Yeah, I hope this doesn't turn into some sensationalistic story... oh, who am I kidding, of course it will! Here's my theory... it was planned! Celebrities like to get in the news. They act coy after the fact, but so often these sensationalistic scenes are planned out.

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I think it was Justin's tit for tat (that pun was just there!) to get the publicity back from Madonna & Britney's kiss. Don't forget, after Justin and Britney broke up, Justin dated... Janet!

Yes, mistakes happen all the time in live performances, but I don't see how this could have been a mistake. Justin actually pulled on material that came off of her costume that he held in his hand. It's not like he jokingly pulled on a strap that accidently broke, he removed part of her costume... I suspect it was velco that was built to tear off.

When I saw it live, I assumed it was a mistake and wasn't sure that she was actually exposed. But it was obviously a planned move on his part to pull on her costume, so if it wasn't intended to expose her, I guess we'll hear what was supposed to happen with her costume when he pulled on it!

By the way, I have already read online that CBS has admitted that it was planned... but it was on the India News site... hmm... is that a reliable source for celebrity news?! I don't know. :-)

Ahhhhh. What do you expect from somebody named Jackson? ;)

Whats the big deal...they sometimes show that much on movies that are supposedly "edited for TV". Who cares anyway?

I did not catch this event live either and first herd about it this morning. Of course it ws not an accident!!!

It is to get people talking, no big deal Beth, but there are already five comments on it just on this web page ?????

Yes and its all they are talking about at work...what about talking about the superbowl.

Okay, so maybe I am naive, but whatever was "exposed" was the wrong color. Think about it.

Posted by: Sherman on February 2, 2004 02:44 PM

Color looks okay to me. And if you notice, she's got a nipple ring covering up her nipple. That, and the song lyric ""I'll get you naked by the end of this song," that Justin sang just before the revealing -- proves to me that it was intentional. And again, I complain that Janet should have retaliated -- where's the Justin nipple?

Leave it to the gay boys to have this pic posted almost immediately after it happened.

I guess we should have a Mom alert on this.;read=8239

i think this whole thing is way out of proportion! i mean come on you see this kind of shit in movies! i bet if janet and justin were to make a movie and he pulled off *an article of clothing* it wouldnt be that big of a deal! shit comes and goes... who cares if justin pulled off some of janets clothing.. and you really think that they did it to get attention?? come on they get attention all the time! im sure it was just a mistake and they werent planning it! and im sure all the guys enjoyed it anyways! they got to see JANET JACKSONS BOOBIE!! :O

Posted by: sherry on February 4, 2004 07:24 PM

and someone was to busy looking at her nipple!! cause i sure as hell didnt notice no nipple ring/covering!!!

Posted by: sherman on February 4, 2004 08:30 PM

Sherry -- I think you are about the only person left that still thinks it was accidental.

I saw the ring in the still pictures.

And movies aren't television because you can (supposedly) restrict young impressionable minds from seeing movies that show tit. And yet, they let small children ride in a car with Ms. Toad.
