Nasty, Nasty Boobs: Don't Mean a Thing

Janet's Boob - Not an Accident, Planned!: Of course Janet's breast falling out of her boddice was planned. For weeks, MTV had been saying they were planning "something outrageous" for the Super Bowl show. MTV is also owned by Viacom, which also owns CBS, so it's in effect like a parent telling a child "we can do whatever the hell we want to." Most obviously though, why else would Janet & Justin perform the song "Rock Your Body" unless it didn't have the lyric "Gonna get you naked by the end of this song."

More pics and analysis and conspiracy talk: "2. There are snaps on her outfit clearly visible, designed to be unsnapped."

Gothamist reports on Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction: "Justin was supposed to pull away the bustier to reveal a red lace bra underneath, but the garment collapsed."

The final word on all this madness was sent in by one of our readers and needs to be published:

I think the naked boob was definitely planned. There was no intention of having a bra there. I think many people in CBS and MTV knew what was going on. They are both owned by Viacom and all. I don't think the chief executives necessarily knew, not sure. I don't think the NFL knew. The No Fun League would have definitely axed the idea. Janet Jackson's new single came out yesterday by the way. I think the real winner in all of this is Timberlake. Any remnants of boy band pussyness still left over from the NSync days are totally gone. Girls will want him even more now and he's earned quite a bit of respect from guys. Michael Powell is going to spend millions of dollars investigating this? Fuck him, stop wasting my tax dollars.
