Janet Jackson NOT Banned from Super Bowl Halftime ... NFL Says

Janet Jackson NOT Banned from Super Bowl Halftime ... NFL Says

Both Timberlake and Jackson insisted later that it was an accident, with a representative for Jackson adding in a written statement: "Justin was supposed to pull away the rubber bustier to reveal a red lace bra".

The NFL also posted about Timberlake's upcoming appearance: "Global superstar Justin Timberlake will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show on NBC at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018, it was confirmed tonight". The 36-year-old Grammy victor will return to the biggest stage in the country's most-watched TV show for the first time since his infamous "wardrobe malfunction" moment with Janet Jackson in 2004. Corporate sponsors of the show were unhappy with the incident, and the Federal Communications Commission received over half a million complaints about Jackson's indecent exposure that lasted just 9/16ths of a second.

Other recent halftime performers have included Katy Perry with Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott, Mars with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beyonce with Destiny's Child and Madonna.

He made the announcement Sunday on Twitter and ahead of NBC's Sunday Night Football broadcast in a humorous video in which he appeared alongside Jimmy Fallon, his longtime friend and frequent collaborator.

In February of this year, Lady Gaga performed during the game's halftime show.

As for what he hoped to achieve with his halftime show, Timberlake said it would be a success if it "feels like it unifies". The singer previously performed at Super Bowl XXXV in 2001 and Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004, which is when he performed with Janet Jackson and grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons.

"What I really want to do is take the opportunity to put together a performance that feels like it unifies", Timberlake said.
