watching the super bowl halftime (the only part of the super bowl i watched), i, along with a 100 million people saw justin timberlake tear off janet jackson's costume to reveal a silver pastie at the end of their song and dance routine. thanks to tivo, we were able to rewatch the scene in delightful horror several times over. believing it was a sad attempt at recreating a madonna/britney moment and wanting to discuss the event further, i learned from wayne that it was not a pastie as originally suspected but silver nipple jewelry!
what mtv is saying:
HOUSTON, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
