If you're a frequent reader of this blog then you know I'm a huge Janet Jackson fan and I have been since I was about six years old. I will do my best to refrain from using profanity in this post despite the fact I'm mad as hell! Does that word count?

Many of you may already know that Justin Timberlake was tapped to host this years ESPY Awards in Los Angeles and always the consummate performer he decided to joke about the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" from the 2004 Super Bowl.

Not funny.

Obviously "Timberfake" thinks because four years has passed and he apologized swiftly in order to receive his first Grammy award as a solo artist that it's appropriate to joke about an incident in which he participated in and came out unscathed. Meanwhile Janet's career has suffered greatly and has yet to fully rebound.

Fortunately for Justin Janet has class and has never publicly called him out for leaving her to take all of the heat.

I never understood why the public was so quick to forgive and forget about the role Justin played in this incident. This stunt he pulled at the ESPY's in an attempt to generate laughter in my opinion was in very poor taste.

But I guess when black artists, producers, and black music consumers continuously shower Timberlake with praise for his musical efforts (which are so reminiscent of Elvis Presley) then he gets a ghetto pass to behave as he chooses, even when it comes to disrespecting a black female artist who happens to be a living legend.

I'm sure a lot of people found his little act funny but I wasn't one of them.

Check out the clip below as well as the recent federal court ruling on the FCC fine against CBS. Looks like Janet will be having the last laugh.


Thanks Jeff!

Darian PLEASE don't get me started on this devious little double agent.

And we KNOW why Janet was attacked and Justin was given a pass. The same reason why America reveres Thomas Jefferson and dismisses Sally Hemings.

Well Justin was given a pass because he apologized for what was obviously a poor stunt on both their parts !!!! Janet still maintains that it was an accident ! hhahah that is a joke .

I honestly think it was Janet's idea to do the stunt, and it was a mistake... a distasteful mistake, but I mean Janet has always been provocative, and we love her for it!

Justin I feel was just part of the plan, but not the masterplanner. If anything Janet should get most of the fault... but NOT as much as she should have.

Janet has joked about it on many occasions, and I guess Justin can to... I think fans are just really still bitter about it.

Justin was given a pass before he apologized. No one really truely knows if it was a stunt or an accident. All you can do is assume and you know what they say about people who assume.

First of all the entire incident would have been far less of a debacle if the incompetent Bush Administration and the FCC led by Colin Powell's son had not made it so! Making this stunt into a national outcry on broadcast decency was merely a distraction from the misguided fucked up atrocities they are responsible for in Iraq. While I am no fan of Justin Timer-flake I really don't think he nor Janet (nor their camps) anticipated what would follow their performance. As for Justin's mockery on the ESPY awards, it just further displays just how far his head is stuck up his own ass. He is so marginally talented its not even funny. His movie bombed, his super bowl joke bombed...maybe he needs to go back and get a fabulous house Negro producer to give him some slave beats and a spear. Lawd. Timberland, I only have one question...how do you challenge the white dick you're sucking?

Lonell,

EXCELLENT analysis!

In regard to Timberland:

He DOESN'T challenge it at all, but he does JUSTIFY it: "Look at all this money I'm making!"

This probably won't get posted since it has to go through the blog author first and since this comment clearly doesn't favour Janet Jackson I'm going to assume it won't be posted but I'm going to say it anyways. First of all, I'm pretty sure Janet Jackson's career was going downhill before the whole superbowl thing happened and it was probably a stunt for that reason exactly, attention. And it's definitely not the reason why her career has yet to rebound, it's because she's no longer popular. Justin's career on the other hand has stayed intact because he is a talented performer. The height of their success has nothing to do with a little bit of nipple shown at one superbowl half time show, it has to with talent and popularity. Janet Jackson just needs to admit she's a hasbeen and move on. And why is everyone hating on Justin for apologizing? Aren't we taught to apologize when we do something wrong? We don't know whether it was sincere or not but why not give him the benefit of the doubt. And I'm sorry but when did Justin every leaver her to take the heat??? Janet Jackson, however, is the one with her "head so far up her own ass" that she thinks she's too good to apologize. And for the record if it was an accident on her part why the nipple tassle? Don't try and tell me she wears nipple tassles everyday...

I'm sure you know what they say about people who assume. And for the record Janet did apologize.

It was Janet's idea, but she got lucky and didn't have to pay the fine!!

Don't forget about the bit that was not aired. His overtly racist comment failed to make a big laugh and was not aired. Do some Googling you'll see what I am talking about.
