Did anyone: just see Janet Jackson's boob pop out during the half-time show? It looked like she has a ring on her right nipple.... Justin Timberlake grabbed it and it popped out, she looked down, shocked, and then they cut to commercial. It was weird.

I saw that too!

Seems pretty convenient timing for a flub. And I rarely believe in such fortuitous coincidences.

i am pretty sure i could have gone through life without sharing that moment with my dad in the room. the song went "bet i'll have you naked at the end of this song!" and it looked like he was supposed to tear a cloth off her chest, but he got the whole pasty and there was boobage and dangling and bouncing for a brief awkward second and there were shocked faces and cut to commercial.

Jerseygirl beat me to it! :) Here's my capture: boob.jpg

Jeez, looks like I got the exact same frame as jerseygirl! The performance that came before it was so racy I almost thought it was on purpose.

Drudge Report is always good for a laugh, here is the headline at 6:25 pm PST: OUTRAGE AT CBS AFTER JANET BARES BREAST DURING DINNER HOUR; SUPER BOWL SHOW PUSHES LIMITS Who is outraged and how does Drudge know so quickly? Even in the age of the Internet, how can he know so quickly? But then, that's probably why the sentence isn't linked to anything. And it wasn't so outrageous that he didn't post the photo himself, nice and sharp.

I'm not watching the superbowl, but based on the video that I have seen (man, the internet is fast!), no breast is bared. She just has one of those sticky-bra thingies covering her nipple (kind of like Lil' Kim at that award show a few years back). So, basically, it was (very likely) staged.

Who is outraged and how does Drudge know so quickly? I imagine quite a few 'groups'.

posted by justgary at 08:53 PM on February 01

i think the word you are looking for is pasty.

posted by jerseygirl at 09:07 PM on February 01

She just has one of those sticky-bra thingies covering her nipple i don't know about that. doesn't seem to be a pasty there.

MVP: Justin Timberlake

I think Justin and Janet have now officially upstaged Britney and Madonna... Assuming it was an accident, Janet must be mortified - from the looks on their faces, I don't think either of them expected it...

posted by Joey Michaels at 09:51 PM on February 01

you can see the "pasty" here. As a plus, I've learned a new word.

posted by mkn at 09:51 PM on February 01

that's a small pasty. i wouldnt even classify it as a pasty. its like yarmulke for her nipple.

posted by jerseygirl at 09:52 PM on February 01

Did anyone somehow get a shot of the streaker just after halftime sinse CBS pulled away? Appearantly some guy on NE decked him when he tried to run away from police. Ouch. Oh, and from mkn's link, all I can think of is Queen of the Damned.

posted by jmd82 at 09:54 PM on February 01

that's a pasty? it kinda reminds me of a Borg implant actually.

posted by danostuporstar at 09:55 PM on February 01

Pictures?! Ha, try the video... If we're gonna see unintentional boobage, though, why not Christina or Britney?! Dammit....

Did anyone just see Janet Jackson's boob pop out during the half-time show? I think that was the mystery guest they kept hyping in the first half. From goddam's link:

"I am sorry that anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance of the Super Bowl," Timberlake said in a statement.

wardrobe malfunction? hahah. i hope snl parodies this.

posted by jerseygirl at 10:22 PM on February 01

Speaking of "begging to be parodied," what was up with that last Gillete commercial? My god, it made fun of itself. Also, how 'bout pop eating itself with Janet Jackson's "A Clockwork Orange" meme during her boobie performances?

Uck, sorry 'bout that! I'm in the process of switching to another host so I cancelled my paid account with them just last night, thus enabling pop-ups and disabling hotlinking.

im sorry for any nightmares you may incur. that's a scary piercing and not a pasty afterall. http://drudgereport.com/jjteet1.jpg

I'de heard about this dude before...I was wondering if it was him. guess this answers my question!

posted by jmd82 at 11:42 PM on February 01

if drudge eventually reports the piercing is, in fact, a cybernetic implant...can i get some bonus points for my abysmal SpoFi playoff pickem score?

I am sort of thrilled in an odd way that this topic has gotten over three times as many comments as the game itself. And here I thought it was an exciting game! ;)

So Janet had that beartrap installed on her nipple but it wasn't meant to be seen on the boobtube last night?

posted by rcade at 08:12 AM on February 02

streaker: it's a bare backside but it's on yahoo, so you know... it's not going to be that bad. use your better judgement on whether its safe for work. http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/afp/20040202/capt.sge.gjd49.020204071010.photo00.default-384x302.jpg

The New York Post's Phil Mushnick, who's sort of the Robert Bork of sports TV critics, weighs in on the incident. Funny how a guy who claims to be so appalled at the coarsening of the culture has no problem working for a Murdoch-owned tabloid, but anywho...

It's kinda like the time that JJ allegedly dropped the mic during a "live" concert -- and the singing went on uninterrupted... Whatta performer. You know, this might be just the thing (the only thing?) to revive a thoroughly moribund career.

So, who is the craziest Jackson? It'd be interesting to see the candidates and why people think they are the craziest of 'em all.

posted by garfield at 02:49 PM on February 02

I don't think Janet is crazy. Out of anyone in that family, she may be the most grounded, although that isn't saying much given the comparison. You get the idea though. Maybe she's a little bit of a freak-freak with the unusual nip piercing, but it's not like her nose is removable or she's riding around on her own personal rollercoaster with a monkey on her left side and a seemly 13 year old on her right.

check out Mr. Sandman Jr.'s link and look at the front of Justin's pants. I think he didn't fully shake things out when he tinkled before the show.
