Justin Timberlake’s infamous 2004 Superbowl halftime show with Janet Jackson came to be known as “Nipplegate.” The shocking moment the former boyband singer exposed the older Janet’s breast led to lasting changes in procedure – with the FCC implementing a five-second broadcast delay during all live performance.

Justin will once again front a halftime show, although he insisted the moment ‘won’t happen this time’ during an interview on Sunday Night Football. And it has emerged that there’s still an outside chance Janet could join him, with NFL officials saying ‘there’s no ban’ on the All For You songstress.

 

Twitter was quick to come to Janet’s defense with the #JusticeForJanet hashtag trending on social media.
