Janet Jackson Boob Slip!

Recommended Posts

soloredd: I honestly don't give a **** what Kid Rock or Janet Jackson do, but I hate for people to be ****ing hypocrites. I was merely pointing out that if all these self proclaimed, easily offended, "moral & upstanding" people were so damn offended by seeing a tittie on TV, you would think they would be offended by flagrant disrespect of their flag on TV as well.

I personally don't consider myself "easily offended" or whatever (if anything, I'm most "offended" with this particular stunt by Timberlake's insulting "costume malfunction" claims after-the-fact)....but....

Frankly, Kid Rock appearing in a cut-up flag was a bit offensive as well. Yes, it's generally against "respectful practice" for people to treat the flag as such, and it was even a bit weird as he was singing about how he was proud to live in the USA or whatever the lyric was.

For that matter, I even remember when Bono had a jacket lined with a U.S. flag when he sang at the Superbowl shortly after 9/11, and even that took me back for a second.

U.S. flag's an interesting thing -- if anything, it can sort of increase in its "power" as people are, generally, free to ignore "guidelines" and treat it as they choose, even burn it publicly, frankly. Can make me raise my eyebrow at someone, but not a big thing I take as personal offense.

On the other hand, being flashed unexpectedly by someone (who's planned it in advance in violation of broadcasting legalities) when I generally think I'm watching an Americana sporting event fun for the whole family is a bit weird, though I was probably more offended by Janet's brief rear end grinding.

ANYWAY, ultimately, I think of everything, it's the stupid, insulting, cover-up lying after-the-fact about "costume malfunctions" that I find most insulting and offensive. There's some degree of tolerance I have for various expressions and things, but people knowingly pulling a stunt then turning around and pretending it was just an accident or something without responsibility *really* irks me.

My guess is that she did it just to prove that it wasn't her brother singing up there. Scary stuff.

Janet Jackson Got Nasty at the MTV-Produced Super Bowl Halftime Show

Jaws across the country hit the carpet at exactly the same time. You know what we're talking about...Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake and a kinky finale that rocked the Super Bowl to its core. P. Diddy, Kid Rock, & Nelly rounded out the halftime show in the midst of the greatest game on earth. MTV was Super Bowl central, so armchair quarterbacks, fair weather fanatics and fans of Janet Jackson and her pasties were definitely in the right place. So strap on those pads, keep your head down and get the full recap of The AOL Super Bowl XXXVIII Halftime Show produced by MTV.

It was planned. :yes:

haha that's exactly what I think. She looks too much like Michael to be considered hot. I'm not attracted to her at all.

That was staged.

She saw it coming long enough.

And those boobs are fake anyway.

The iron thing is a replacement for her nipple ;-)

And I do agree her being fugly.

Does it really matter? Japan pretty has next to no censorship and they have one of the lowest crime rates. Their society doesn't seem immoral or corrupt.

You people are acting like these kids are going to need years of therapy because they saw a nipple. Hell, if I was the age of 8 and I saw a nipple on TV, I'd be the most excited kid in the world.

Some are just too uptight. I say the world would be a better place if some nipple was shown randomly every once in a while...just not from Janet.

I can't believe all the talk over this. It's MTV, what the hell did people expect? It's Janet, she's a ######. It's Justin, he's a man slut. :huh:

If anybody still cares, I have basically a wrap up of the pics and the video on my web site (so long as it can endure the traffic :) )

You can find it on Links Removed

Definitely looks intentional. Of course they'll deny it... MTV directed the show, MTV is owned by Viacom, which is a sister company of CBS. The coffers run deep. If they admitted this was intentional, city, state, and church would sue like the dickens (no pun intended).

Not anymore. The horse is dead, and it's been beaten a few more times for good measure.
