Singer Justin Timberlake says he has “made peace” with Janet Jackson, after 14 years of the Super Bowl “wardrobe malfunction” incident.
In case you don’t remember this event, Timberlake ripped off part of Jackson’s bodice during Super Bowl XXXVII. Revealing her right breast to more than 14 million viewers. Although these artists apologized, Jackson was fined and blacklisted by US radio and MTV.
“I stumbled on that,” singer Timberlake told Zane Lowe about the consequences.
“To be honest, I had my cables crossed.”
“It’s something you have to look back on and go, ‘OK, you can not change what happened, but you can go ahead and learn from it.'”
The star was talking to the Beats 1 radio before his performance at this year’s Super Bowl half-time show on Sunday, February 4th. Lowe asked if he and Jackson had taken the time to “resolve the situation” and “make peace” after the incident with the singer’s wardrobe.
“Absolutely,” he replied. “I don’t know if many people know it.”
“I don’t think it’s my job to do that.”
Criticism for lack of support to Janet Jackson
Timberlake received severe criticism after his alleged lack of support for Jackson. In a television interview after his presentation, he seemed to suggest that nudity had been planned.
“It was fun, it was fast, slippery, to the point,” he told Access Hollywood.
Inequality for singers?
“Up to a point, yes,” she replied.
