(AllHipHop News) Pop superstar Justin Timberlake is set to be the halftime performer at this year’s Super Bowl. Previously, JT was part of the mid-game extravaganza in 2004.
The Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show is mostly known for Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” which was caused by surprise guest Timberlake pulling off her nipple shield. The former NSYNC member spoke about the infamous moment during an interview with Beats 1 Radio.
“That’s something that we talked about,” revealed JT. “It wasn’t too much of a conversation. It’s just one of those things where it’s like, ‘What do you want me to say? We’re not going to do that again.'”
Nipplegate became a national controversy. While Janet was routinely slammed in the media, many observers believed Timberlake was not publicly criticized nearly as much as his collaborator. He also faced backlash for what was perceived as timid support for Jackson following the negative response.
According to the “Filthy” singer, he and Janet have spoken since the incident. Timberlake stated, “I don’t know if a lot of people know that. I don’t think it’s my job to do that because you value the relationships that you do have with people.”
