I was going to RUN down the GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY of Justin Timberlake’s SuperB Bowl Halftime show. The GOOD was that it was only 13 minutes. The BAD is that it was safe and BORING, and the UGLY is that he accepted the GIG in the first place after 2004. He SKATED over the now INFAMOUS ‘wardrobe malfunction’ relatively UNSCATHED, while Janet was DEMONIZED–and for WHAT? ALSO another UGLY was him bringing Prince’s LEGACY into play when he-the PURPLE ONE–clearly EXPRESSED he was against such… BUT then I ran across an article that FULLY articulated just how Justin LOST the Super Bowl.

I have not been a FAN of Justin Timberlake since ‘Nipplegate’. I have expressed why on NUMEROUS platforms. In short, HIS PRIVILEGE allowed him to get off ‘SCOTT FREE’ for the wardrobe malfunction that he cause, while Janet Jackson bore the BRUNT of the CRITICISM and SHAME.
So my opinion maybe a bit HARSH to say the least. I caught the HIGHLIGHTS of this year’s HALFTIME SHOW. I was busy REPRESENTING #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay’ to bother to tune it. But I DID catch the HIGHLIGHTS of the performance. While it was a GREAT idea and fitting to TRIBUTE Prince–he is an ICON of the ages, and your are in his BACKYARD. It makes sense–in THEORY. But in EXECUTION, NO. Prince spoke in DEPTH about his DISTASTE for holograms and technology that ALTERS reality. Continue reading Critics are SLAMMING #JustinTimberlake’s #HalftimePerformance [vid]→
There have been ALL SORTS of RUMORS swirling surrounding Justin Timberlake’s SUPERBOWL halftime show. There was the RUMOR about him paying HOMAGE to Prince in his hometown with a HOLOGRAM. The ESTATE of the PURPLE ONE quickly shot that rumor CLEAR out of the sky. [If you missed it..revisit that story HERE].
Now there was a HUGE rumor that Janet Jackson was going to be a SURPRISE guest. First of all, she was a guest of his before and we all know how that worked out…[In case you MISSED it revisit JT’s HYPOCRISY HERE]
Janet is NOT here for the RUMOR or SPECULATIONS. SHE CLEARS THE AIR…from her own LIPS…well FINGERS…
It’s almost Super Bowl LII and what’s one of the best parts about the BIG GAME–the COMMERCIALS!
