    Vincentr1: Publicity stunt, or accident?

    Does anyone think it was a "wardrobe malfunction"? ;)

    IMHO it's a shame that a breifly naked breast could cause such a stirr. Like no-one watching that game ever saw a bare breast before, WTF? My nine year old gigglesd and ponited his finger. Somehow I doubt that he's scared for life. Since when is the Super bowl such a sacred function as to be offended by Janet's bared breast? The cheerleaders were showing off theirs, Puffy's, and Neely's girls were showing off theirs. I'm a fim believer that if they didn't make such a big deal about it, it wouldn't happen again. First there was Madonna and Britney, then Madonna and Christina, then Christina nad Britney, Now Justin and Janet. Seems like a bunch of kids fighting for attention. What do you think would happend if the football players started flashing their penises and kissing for the camers? :eek: I bet everyone would forget all about Janet, Madonna, Britney and Christina real fast., And women and gay men would even start to watch footbal! Any thoughts?

    mindseye: Really; what would be the point of a pop-open flap covering her breast and no undergarments beneath the flap, if not to cause a reaction? MTV's comments before the game suggest that they knew full well what was going to happen.

    I'm not offended by a little booby. What *does* offend me is CBS's refusal to air MoveOn's spot -- while airing ads promoting alcohol consumption, Viagra, and the White House's dead horse war on drugs.

    Oh, that's how CBS is. They also wouldn't show a series on Reagan because it was 'liberally biased'. (That phrase has lost meaning ever since Limbaugh said that the New York Times was. With all their glowing reviews of Herrnstein and Murray.)

    It turns out that Janet was wearing a silver-colored pastie under that missing piece of clothing.  Why would she be wearing a pastie if she didn't know it was going to happen?

    The halftime program was a sorry one notable only for its questionable content.  Rappers glorifying drugs, Timberlake doing the lambada, Janet doing a strip and Kid Rock watching crotches and desecrating the flag.

    It should have come with a warning label.  They should have realized that the families that sit down together to watch the Super Bowl don't necessarily sit down together to watch MTV - as a matter of fact, responsible parents won't let their kids watch MTV unsupervised.

    CBS claims ignorance and blames MTV, which produced the fiasco.  

    Viacom owns MTV.  

    Viacom also owns CBS.

    Yet they feign ignorance?  Please!  ::)

    HungTeenStud: Actually she has a nipple piercing called a "shield". I'm fairly certain she wears that a lot since there have been pics in the past where you can see a outline of nipple jewelry through her tops...

    Is it really odd that Janet has a new album about to be released?

    Publicity, anyone?

    Well, I missed the whole thing during Janet's boobies. Justin Bimbofake was enough to make me change the channel.

    Sorry, Pecker. I think you forget that, unlike a lot of pop hacks in music today, Janet Jackson is one of few, albeit pop, stars to have endured, to demonstrate her incredible singing and dancing talent, and to have done so with considerable humility and thankfulness. I don't see the Britney Spears of the world remodeling and growing through their music. Britney's just wanting to be a little vocal about sex while faking her virginity. I don't think the girl had a single desire to even kiss a woman until Madonna said so, and even then, that was all stunt. Until Britney starts singing, pardon me, "wholesome" songs about real experience and deep down emotion, she's just thrusting and gyrating her happy ass into pop oblivion.

    Janet, if you call, was a big girl in a big thick black jacket who slimmed down, grew her hair out, thought it was okay to date again, went sultry and smooth without being overrated, and tried her hand in acting and did... decent, I suppose. She's got one hell of a story, and you know, Peck, you hear that kind of stuff when you quit making assumptions.

    Even Christina, someone else I'm not particularly fond of, has the courage and fortitude to sing about young women learning to appreciate their bodies and find confidence.

    But I'm in agreement that the Super Bowl halftime show was a pretty big letdown. I screamed at Janet's boobie, and most men in the restaurant did a double take. Sure. It was near-gratuitous nudity. Other than that, P. Diddy and Kid Rock and Justin and all were a big yawn, nothing new...

    I'm still sad that CBS didn't even bother to show the MoveOn -- hmmm, wonder why?!

    As for me? I think it was supposted to happen. i mean look at the silver shit on her nipple. why else would that be there if it wasn't intended? i'm sorry, i don't think that's any peircing...i think it was actually intended to be there for this exact thing that happened.
    and yeah, that's my 2 cents.

    C'mon, Dee, I'm well aware of the tough life Janet's had and that she's probably the most respected and talented of the Jackson clan. But we all make mistakes, and she made this one.

    The NFL's mistake was in hiring MTV for the halftime show.

    mindseye: MTV says it was an accident: "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." [Source]

    "Completely unintentional", they say. Janet Jackson herself says otherwise:

    "The decision to have a costume reveal at the end of my half-time show performance was made after final rehearsals." [Source]

    ...and what did Janet get as a reward for flashing the nation? An early release for her new record:

    "Jackson's label Virgin Records, capitalized on the attention, announcing that her new single 'Just a Little While,' was being delivered to U.S. radio outlets on Monday, ahead of schedule." [Same source as previous quote.]

    I got to say this before I forget it; Janet Jackson's probably the most normal of the Jackson family. While true enough she may've accidently flashed a bit 'o tit, and probably gotten named this year's half-time show the SUPER-BALL HALF -TIME SHOW what's the last outrageous thing she's done in the past?

    Aside from admitting that she and the wacko one are related, and have made a video together that is.

    Let's not make a mountain of a molehill fellas, uh speaking of which, she does have attributes better suited for more adult viewing........oh, uh HEF..........! ;D :D

    If anything comes out of this tawdry affair, I hope it's the greater use of 'Molehill' as an innuendo.

    That and increased sales of those nipple-shield things...that'll help the economy...

    Saying "Americans aren't prudes", is like saying "Football isn't VIOLENT". Both sayings are horseshit. Violence is acceptable in the US, but nudity or sex is not. Two things that are natural and instinctual (not to mention shitting and peeing).

    But yet most Americans are so conservative, they pee or shit in their pants when sex or nudity is shown. Hell, I remember the uproar in junior high when a teacher wanted to give a "sex education" course. OMG, parents went ballistic! So, we just grew up ignorant and learned about it thru friends and/or experiences. Teenage pregnancies were very common in my day.

    Do you know how long other countries, aside from the anal retentive ones (you know the ones), have shown butts and breasts on COMMERCIALS? Just look at the Benny Hill shows.... Have you ever watched foreign movies? Loads of nudity, because to them, its natural. Did you know their are people in the US, that the WHOLE family walks around naked? Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn is one of them.

    America is known for our violence in movies and TV, but conservative regarding sex and nudity. Cripes, look at football itself. A bunch of grown men ramming into each other like animals. Men flying in the air just to land on their head. How do explain THAT to your kids? Do you tell them that kind of violence is "normal"? Excuse me, but I never considered the Super Bowl a family event.

    Lets think a moment.... loads of stupid gross ads, commercials with half-naked women in snow, the famous BEER commercials and men ramming the shit out of each other. Ok, sure. I see where its considered a "family event". ::)

    I guess I'm not up to speed. I always thought it was a day for men to get together, get drunk, eat pizza and chips, yell, scream and shout at the TV. Testosterone city. And the women get together and laugh at the way these grown men act like little boys......Silly me.

    mindseye: This is original -- and you saw it here first. Beauty and the Beast fans will recognize the tune:


    Show your breast! Show your breast!
    Have your sidekick bare your chest!
    Then pretend it's a 'malfunction' and the whole thing was in jest!

    Flash your boob on the tube!
    Prove that Viacom's your rube!
    Why, that nipple silver plating's gonna top the TiVo ratings!

    I'll be blunt: What a stunt!
    (least you didn't show your [other breast].)
    The FCC is pissed, you might have guessed.

    You and Michael, I suppose
    need to both keep on your clothes.
    So stay dressed! So stay dressed! So stay dressed!

    goodboygonebad98: On the news they interviewed people that thought it was just horrible. Many of them stated that they thought that it should not have happened (if planned) because the superbowl is a "family show". However, I found it interesting that no one commented on the guys that kept grabbing their packages while they sang (lip sinked). ::)
    Somehow it is okay for the guys to grab their crotches/dicks/nuts on a "family show" but it is not okay for Janet to show a little clevage? Must be those guys just had to keep checking to make sure their dicks and nuts where still there and didn't go anywhere. Maybe if they were hung a little bigger they would be able to feel it hanging, and not have to touch it to make sure it didn't go anywhere. :D
    But that is just my point of view. 8)

    Oh, and to the ones out their that claimed the super bowl is a "family event" and what do you tell your children.... What the hell did you tell your kids about the erectile injections comercial? ?? ?? ??? ??

    Tell your kids that it is a womans breast used for feeding babies and that all women have one including your mother.. Simple as that...

    Sheesh people, grow up and get that prudish corn cob out of your butt....
