Justin Timberlake has been crooning his way into the hearts of Americans since he was just a young boy. Now, the star is hotter than ever. In the 1990’s, it was Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club that made him a household name.
He recently announced that he would host the Super Bowl half-time show. While most of the world is happy, many cannot forget what happened 14 years ago. Being a part of Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction was an epic moment in the game’s history.
The complete wardrobe malfunction was said to be just a malfunction. However, the FCC and millions of Americans watched in horror as Janet Jackson bared her breast in front of millions of viewers. The 2004 halftime show went down in history. The duo was singing and dancing to “Rock Your Body” and having a good time.
The problem occurred when they got to the part of the song that stated: “gonna have you naked by the end of this song.” In a moment that seemed all too fitting, Jackson was suddenly exposed. More than 90 million viewers watched as her pierced nipple was uncovered on live television.
Fans will watch, if for nothing more, just to see if he tries any tricks of this nature. The star stated that this mishap was more than a decade ago and he will take special precautions to ensure such an event doesn’t happen again. What can groupies expect to see from him this time around?
Well, he has some big shoes to fill. Since the last time he appeared on that stage, big names like Madonna, Lady Gaga, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and others have performed. Though Vanity Fair first reported the story last month, Timberlake visited the set of pal Jimmy Kimmel to announce that he would be doing the show on the famous talk show on October 22nd.
The fun video skit was a great way to announce that he would once again be doing this epic show. The Super Bowl LII Pepsi Halftime show will be grand. Wonder if he will ask Janet Jackson to join him on stage once again. Some say that it would be a great time to show fans that the duo could perform in a “G-Rated” manner. However, Jackson has been out of the limelight for some time with the birth of her child.
Timberlake is an excellent option for the show as he has quite the fan following. He is also a beloved star who has rebuilt his image after his split from N’SYNC.
