2004-02-01 09:09:00 PM  

I completely and totally did not see this coming. At all.
2004-02-01 09:09:04 PM  
thank you! finally!
2004-02-01 09:09:17 PM  
She's related to Michael, ergo, creepy in MY book.
The whole family is messed the F up!
Boobies or not!

funniest shiat ever on live TV
2004-02-01 09:09:42 PM  
WTF is going on here? What was he trying to do?
2004-02-01 09:09:53 PM  
Okay, from the Superbowl thread, I have a question: how many had their wives/gf/SO or whatever point it out first?

Or at least publically acknowedge they saw it?
2004-02-01 09:09:53 PM  
Niiiiiice :)
2004-02-01 09:09:59 PM  
Yay for live tv, first tony cursing and now miss Janet.
2004-02-01 09:10:06 PM  
Thank me later :)

right after that the pause button attacked Justin Timberlake

Didn't Lil Kim do something like that at the Grammys?
2004-02-01 09:10:37 PM  
best. super bowl halftime. ever.
2004-02-01 09:11:05 PM  
So wheres the HD captures? Need some scientists to get a close up, full screen, full detail. like a 2 meg jpg
2004-02-01 09:11:09 PM  
I think it is a fake flash...just a shirt or something to LOOK like a breast
2004-02-01 09:11:19 PM

HDTV capture. Enjoy.
2004-02-01 09:11:39 PM  
Wow. On the net in like, what, 10 minutes? Christ people.
2004-02-01 09:11:50 PM  
That must be the cause of all those "erections lasting longer than four hours"....

2004-02-01 09:12:10 PM  
i didn't watch the bowl? how did it happen?
2004-02-01 09:12:10 PM  
Was that on purpose or what?

At first I thought she was wearing a Lil' Kim style pasty over her nipple, hence the sparkling silver.

My friend told me that was just a nipple piercing.

I have no clue. It was awesome, regardless.

After 10 minutes of lip-syncing I turned it off...worst halftime ever, don't care about a single Jackson boob showing.
2004-02-01 09:12:15 PM  
am i the only person who saw the streaker at the start of the second half.....they cut away really fast. janets boob is stealing all the thinder
2004-02-01 09:12:20 PM  
Her breasts are not a piece of meat! She is a human being, her nipples are emotionally fragile and sensitive to bright lights! Oh the HUMANITY!
2004-02-01 09:12:21 PM  
..hmnn thought I saw a paste' (silver star) over it.. was it real boobage?
2004-02-01 09:12:27 PM  
My g/f noticed first... I saw them look down and the camera cut away...
2004-02-01 09:12:39 PM  
Remember when Michael just stood there for, like 5 minutes, before he sang?

If only she would have stood that long...
2004-02-01 09:12:56 PM  
You da man!
2004-02-01 09:13:05 PM  
I'm a girl and I saw it before my husband did.

That was quite a white boobie...
2004-02-01 09:13:16 PM  
What BillBrasky said, thanks Gangis!
2004-02-01 09:13:21 PM  
i didn't see it live, but all of the pictures and videos kinda make it look like it was planned.
2004-02-01 09:13:22 PM  
At least /SOMETHING/ interesting happened during the game.
2004-02-01 09:13:31 PM  
I am really impressed with the HD quality
2004-02-01 09:13:37 PM  
what the hell was he trying to do, anyway..
2004-02-01 09:13:44 PM  
I thought it looked like she had a little silver pastie on. Maybe not.
2004-02-01 09:14:04 PM  
Stompn_Tom: shirts don't flop around like her boobie did when you saw it live
2004-02-01 09:14:08 PM  
Yeah I saw and was like LOL OMG wtf
2004-02-01 09:14:21 PM

2004-02-01 09:14:21 PM  
My vote for "worst Superbowl ad" is the one by Gilette that just played ("yeah, you know that feelin', yeah...").

/missed the boobies :(((
2004-02-01 09:14:34 PM  
So is that on purpose then??
2004-02-01 09:14:35 PM  
It looked like she had a silver pastie over the nipple. I think it was for publicity.
2004-02-01 09:15:03 PM  
it's a pasty.. here's some high res pics:
2004-02-01 09:15:05 PM  
I knew I saw what I saw! HAHA! Intoxicated my arse!
2004-02-01 09:15:40 PM  
I don't get it.
It's a pasty that doesn't fit that wasn't suppose to be seen?

2004-02-01 09:15:49 PM  
Either it was a mistake or her acting is great. That was one hell of a suprised look.
2004-02-01 09:15:54 PM  
dang... I missed boobie 'cause I was surfin' boobies during halftime.
2004-02-01 09:16:04 PM  
The question is, was it planned to look like a mistake, or was it really truly a mistake. Or maybe Justin was stoned. She genuinely looked like "holy crap, I feel a draft!".
2004-02-01 09:16:11 PM  
That boobie was sporting a sparkly gold pastie. Its obvious. Cheers to all the guys out there. Sure got an eye full!
2004-02-01 09:16:55 PM  
Pasty. She had an aluminum pastie over it. And, thank God! That was enuf to make anyone blow chunx as it was.

I'd much rather have seen Aguilera on stage.... but we _have_ to have our affirmitave action tokens, now don't we?

Blech. Feh. Blarg. et. al-Franken.
2004-02-01 09:16:57 PM  
she sure looked surprised..maybe justin was getting back at her for something that happened in that very short time they dated? i mean I doubt those things are suppose to rip off so easily.. (obviously NSFW)

there's a nice slow mo version on that site
2004-02-01 09:16:58 PM  
My wife used Tivo to run it back about 10x. Her opinion?

Nipple ring.

My opinion?

Boobie pastie.
2004-02-01 09:16:58 PM  
Ya know, it is tragic when you are considered the less Wacko Jacko.
2004-02-01 09:17:12 PM  
My wife - and 6 year old daughter - were watching. With me. I have Tivo. She said - did you see that? I said no....but rewound it.

My 6 year old went to bed immediately.
2004-02-01 09:17:18 PM  
Yup. My lady saw it before I realized what happened. Wish she'd have taken a cue though, heheh.

Observation: Janet/Timberlake illustrates that apparently several members of the Jackson family have a thing for significantly younger males...

/had to say it
2004-02-01 09:17:30 PM  
I think she has one of those artifical metal nipples.
2004-02-01 09:17:34 PM  
Well, another historic half-time show has come and gone. And CBS has done itself proud by keeping this glorious tradition alive.

Let's see--we got insipid music, slutty cheerleaders, cheesy pyrotechnics, Nelly grabbing his penis, Kid Rock desecrating the flag, and finally Justin Timberlake pulling down Janet Jackson's top after some obscene bumping and grinding. And all that during their own self-named "family hour."

At least the wise leaders of CBS had the good sense to not bring unneeded controversy to themselves by running the MoveOn.Org ad during the game. They obviously follow a zero tolerance when it comes to advocacy ads--unless they're about drugs, or music downloading, or smoking, etc., etc.

Kudos to The Tiffany Network for maintaining it's high standards and values during these difficult times.

And be sure to join us in two years for Super Bowl XL in Detroit, where the CBS half-time MoTown Spectacular will feature several nude Temptations and Martha reeves giving Stevie Wonder a good old fashioned reach-around.

2004-02-01 09:18:13 PM  
Yeah, I reluctantly ended up watching the half time show because the friggin "Lingerie Bowl" started early. I was swapping back and forward the whole game.

Before I got up to get a drink I had the pleasure of seeing this little jewel. For those who didn't get to see the "Lingerie Bowl" you missed one great cat fight and some damn nice outfits!
2004-02-01 09:18:20 PM  
Go, justin! You just popped JJs boobie out on worldwide TV!
2004-02-01 09:18:41 PM  
Ah, another good decision made by a member of the Jackson family.

I'm guessing Mark Geragos has already placed a call.
2004-02-01 09:18:44 PM  
2004-02-01 09:18:47 PM  
OK, farkers unite. Let's see if we can figure out exactly what happened here before we get some sort of "official" word on it.

The facts:
1. Boobage coincided with the end of the song, during the lyrics, "Make me naked".

2. Ms. Jackson looked quite shocked after it actually happened

3. The camera quickly panned away

4. boobies

The pseudo-fact
1. Ms. Jackson had a pasty on her nipple (or a peircing?)
2. Ms. Jackson had a cyborg implant in her nipple

My guess: Timberlake was supposed to pull off some outer layer of clothing during the line "Make me naked", but something got snagged taking off too much. Anyone have a better idea? I have a hard time believing that its a publicity stunt, which many people are claiming already, since it is a family event and she knows this.

2004-02-01 09:19:01 PM  
Holy God, that was the most awful seven-or-so minutes of tripe I've ever seen.
2004-02-01 09:19:43 PM  
All I can say is thank God for TiVo.

2004-02-01 09:20:20 PM  
I'm sure it was planned. She's wearing a pasty. Isn't that the song where he says something like, "I'll have you naked by the end of this song."
2004-02-01 09:20:41 PM

2004-02-01 09:21:25 PM  
"slutty cheerleaders"

I agree with the rest of the stuff, but ain't nothing wrong
with "slutty cheerleaders" ;-)
2004-02-01 09:21:35 PM  
obviously staged...his line before he pulled it off was "gotta have you naked by the end of this song."

plus, it does have a pastie on it...
2004-02-01 09:21:43 PM  
You know, Bono and J-Lo tried to be do the halftime show...

2004-02-01 09:22:47 PM  
my theory

All for the publicity. The songs called "make me naked".
She's just a good actress (this time) and "looked" shocked.

Guess Britny was getting too much press.

Those Jacksons are all Media Whores anyway.

"Look at me! Look at me!"
2004-02-01 09:22:52 PM  
Gotta agree with VinDiesel above - that Gilette ad is probably one of the worst things ever seen on TV

Of course it was planned! That is why I tried to time my bathroom trips! The commercials were supposed to be the stuff, but Janet! Oh yeah! Ever since she made the big time she doesn't call me anymore.
2004-02-01 09:23:49 PM  
I have regained my faith in the internet. I said it would take an hour minimum. I was wrong.
2004-02-01 09:24:08 PM  

Last week the wheels are in motion (PR wheels) saying Janets UPCOMING ALBUM will be her "sexiest ever". That's a quote.


Totally planned, totally hyped, totally makes me gag. She HAS talent - why get in the ring wth the other pop sluts?

The boob showing had to be planned.

What I want to know why the hell she was picked for halftime? "Rythymn Nation" came out in 1989. That is a 15 year old song. What lame 50 year old cbs exec said this is what the young people will like?

Puhleaze. He ripped her cup off. She was wearing a star on her tit. It was meant to come off.
2004-02-01 09:26:31 PM  
Look at the Houston Chronicles web site. Her boobie was covered with a flesh covered thingy. They have a great pic of it.

Janet Jackson is the hottest thing ever and anyone who says otherwise would still sell a kidney for an hour alone with her.

When I saw her live she basically dry-humped a guy to tears on this cross contraption during that really kinky song on her new album. so hot.
2004-02-01 09:27:15 PM​52

That link makes it look like she's a victim.
2004-02-01 09:27:34 PM  
I turned the game off in the second quarter. There's a reason most people watch football only when they're either loaded with Official Beer Sponsor or they've got money on one of the teams.

/Freiburg 1, Bayer Leverkusen 0. Now that's what I call football.
2004-02-01 09:28:34 PM

Considering it looks like he intentionally ripped off the shirt... Yea, I vote for intentional.
2004-02-01 09:28:49 PM  
I personally want to thank those of you who actually endured the halftime show to bring me this wonderful footage. I'm really not a Jackson fan but, boobies are boobies.

There needs to be a poll of some kind for people to vote accident or staged.

IMHO, It looks like a pastie.
2004-02-01 09:28:55 PM  
gotta be a pasty. come on people its the superbowl. think about how much they (corporations) pay for 30 seconds of air time... Janet's back baby!
2004-02-01 09:28:58 PM  
Speaking of flashing, was there a streaker on the field right at the beginning of the second half?
2004-02-01 09:29:00 PM  
People, it was staged. An tight vinyl outfit like that doesn't just come apart by accident. Besides, it fit with the line Justin was singing (the one about having her naked).

The halftime show sucked - lip-synching, bloated pyrotechnics, and a line-up that would have been impressive five years ago. Aside from Brady's 52 yard pass, nothing too exciting.
2004-02-01 09:29:10 PM  
What about screen captures from the bikini bowl thing???!?!

Screw JJ,,I want the hot white girls!
2004-02-01 09:29:16 PM  
Janet Jackson looks like a dark Michael Jackson with a normal nose.

If you get off on that.. well, so be it.
2004-02-01 09:29:22 PM  
Ya, we need captures of the streaker right before the kickoff in the 2nd half...
2004-02-01 09:30:01 PM  
He ripped part of her costume off?? And she happens to have a "nipple shield"?? And she makes a face like it's an accident??

What little respect I had for the last remaining Jackson to have any talent is now gone.. Soon she'll be in porn with Britney, Christina and Maslutodonna.
2004-02-01 09:31:11 PM  
Her reaction is slightly convincing, but if you have any experience in stage acting, you can see how sloppily they get into their blocking, preparing for the song to end so he can do that. It's all way too sloppy and set up looking.

The covered nipple only helps support this. Her first reaction if this were real, you'd think, would be to double over--it's human nature. Instead she pantomime's over her shoulder, then forward then down.

That just looks too rehersed to me.

2004-02-01 09:31:17 PM  
2004-02-01 09:31:18 PM

Thank you very much Gangis :)

Is she wearing a pasty?!?

Maybe it was on purpose...
2004-02-01 09:33:51 PM  

yet another has been trying to sell her body becuase her music isn't good anymore. If she is promoting a new album, then why did she have to sing old stuff like rythm nation? Because the new album will suck, and nobody will care. Poor form for Janet, even worse for the Tiffany network.
2004-02-01 09:34:28 PM

vote Panthers punter Todd Sauerbrun MVP!
2004-02-01 09:34:34 PM  
That Houston Chronicle blog entry someone pointed to earlier is wrong. Look at all the other pics on the net. The "line" he's referring to is where her breast is being scrunched up by her hand. It seems obvious to me, and it's obvious if you look at all the other pics floating around that that *was* her real breast (though partially covered by a poorly-sized pastie).

Which leaves us back to the real question, whether it was on purpose. My wife thinks it was. I'm not so sure. Even if it was, heads ae gonna roll over it - it's just a question of if its network heads or Justin Timberlake's.
2004-02-01 09:35:23 PM

Ha! not a chance. You won't trick me that easily!
2004-02-01 09:36:15 PM  
unmeritedfavor, my vote is with you. This is what happens when we let native-born Americans perform at halftime.

also, I smell a really great Photoshop contest in this.
2004-02-01 09:36:33 PM  
It is "kinda" a pasty. Essentially it's a metal "ring" that clamps down on her nipple. Sort of the same effect you'd get if you put a ring on your finger. From the images, it appears the Janet has massive, thick nipples.

The ring had a "helios" pattern attached to it... like little rays or petals shooting out of the ring, towards her boob.
2004-02-01 09:36:42 PM

Drudge has an "exclusive" on this where he claims it was on purpose, and it was her real breast:

2004-02-01 09:38:48 PM  
Easily it was done on purpose. And this is how it went down at the half-time planning commision:

Stupid guy in blue shirt with one of those white colars: So we've got a bunch of pseudo-musicians lip syncing.
Crazy goth lady from MTV: And fireworks!
Stupid guy in blue shirt with one of those white colars: Hmmm, seems like it is missing ... something.

silence ensues...

Stupid guy in blue shirt with one of those white colars: fark it, let's show Janet's boobs.

You know what's a funny term?

"Nipple Slip."

Say it aloud. It's gigglicious.
2004-02-01 09:40:55 PM  
So was that the special guest they were talking about?
2004-02-01 09:41:27 PM  
Definitely on purpose.

No question, that's a real boob. Watch it bounce in that vid. No latex skin thing would do that.

Still wish I had seen it live. I always miss this stuff.

/I want to kiss you
2004-02-01 09:41:59 PM  
Of course it was staged. If it wasn't, you would have seen that nancy-boy getting his ass kicked on national TV. Janet (Ms. Jackson if you're nasty) would biatchslap him into next week.
2004-02-01 09:42:12 PM  
Boy: Did he just pull her boob off?
pmegan: What? I missed it?
Boy: No, I swear he just grabbed her top and it came off.
pmegan: Don't worry. If it happened I'm sure it'll be on Fark.

Come on guys, there have to be some better pics, though!
2004-02-01 09:42:14 PM

2004-02-01 09:42:52 PM  
Figures. CBS Standards & Practices thinks an issue ad that represents the beliefs of half the country isn't appropriate, but a boobie stunt is.

Feh, I say. Feh!

2004-02-01 09:43:22 PM  
2004-02-01 09:43:28 PM  
I vote staged. I think it's unlikely she would be wearing something that would cover her entire nipple unless she knew beforehand she was going to be exposed. I doubt Timberlake would have the balls to mess with someone with enough money and power to ruin his career unless he knew it was ok.

Look at how much interest it's drummed up on the internet. Is this a 50% larger sale on her next album? Double?
2004-02-01 09:43:51 PM  
That looks like a tape-device I've seen to give sagging breasts "a lift" on her boob, there. If it was meant to be seen, it's not the best choice for all the spotlights.

You aren't seeing metal. You're seeing reflections off of boob-packing tape.

2004-02-01 09:45:51 PM  
Janet's hyping a "sexy album." Timberlake wants to lose the juvenile rep and be a "grown-up recording artist."

It's a stunt. I'm sure it's legitimately her chest. She's supposed to have piercings somewhere, so that silver dohickey might even just be the sort of thing she wears all the time. But accidental? I think not.

Everyone will claim it's an accident, but it wasn't.

Halftime crap that the stuff that just transpired is the reason many people dislike American pop culture. It was almost self-parody. Kid rock comes on and embarrasses himself. Then Janet Comes on.

Looks like Michael. Dances like Michael. 'Nuff said.

Then Justin f'n Timberlake comes on? It was at this point that I picked up the laptop and started surfing.

Janet's boobies? Nobody cares.

Question for all you idiots saying Janet is disgusting:

Have you ever seen a girl naked?

That's what real tits look like, you freaks.
2004-02-01 09:49:11 PM  
Correct, faerystarrz... the only difference is that hers shield was a bit larger. :)

Still don't think it was accidental.
2004-02-01 09:49:35 PM  
Justin's a good actor. First his "reaction" to Madonna and Britney kissing and now this. What a joke lmao.
2004-02-01 09:49:38 PM  
According to Drudge: "The decision to go forward went to the very top of the network," a well-placed source explained from New York.

*raises her hand and asks about the streaker footage*

Come on people! Was it male, female? Ugly, hot? What?

I mean Janet's boobie was covered anyway. If they wanted to make it more interesting they would have put a dark brown pastie on it not metallic.

This stunt was totally planned! as if JT would actually think of ripping her cup off on the spot... nuurgh news article posted 28th of January
"Janet Jackson's Super Bowl Show Promises 'Shocking Moments'"

As the big game approaches, one of the top questions along with "Who's going to win?" is "What will Janet Jackson be doing at the halftime show?" But Janet isn't the only celebrity cutie who'll be catching eyes during the MTV-produced AOL Top Speed Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime performance Sunday. Jessica Simpson has just been added to the festivities.

"I don't think the Super Bowl has ever seen a performance like this," Duldulao added. "The dancing is great. She's more stylized, she's more feminine, she's more a woman as she dances this time around. There are some shocking moments in there too".

2004-02-01 10:23:08 PM  

-those costumes aren't likely to rip apart that easily (since Justin is such a pansy)
-she was wearing a pastie/ring/shroud to keep the nipplage down
-her reaction wasn't natural of a woman whose breast was accidentally exposed (she looked at her feet instead of grabbing her bare boob right away)
-Viacom will do anything for ratings

BTW, why does Drudge list Viacom as CBS's sister affiliate??? Viacom owns CBS. Jeez...
2004-02-01 10:23:13 PM

Actually, I think something might have gone wrong. If you look at the video here, keep an eye on Justin as it happens. Yes, I know it's difficult, but trust me. Watch his expression.

After he rips it off, you can see him do a subdued "oh fark" take. What I think was supposed to happen, is the outer black part was supposed to come off leaving the red part intact. Of course, Justin grabbed both layers and yanked them both off.

The nipple cover, of course, is suspicious and lends lots of credibility to it being a stunt. It's possible, however, that it was there as a safety in case something like this happened. Probably the only way they'd have gotten the network to go along with it.

Plus, Janet looks genuinely pissed in this picture.

Hook, line & stinker:

I can't believe you (somewhat intelligent people) are debating this was/wasn't part of the show, a climax, a stunt...

I can't believe Americans are so sexually and intellectually paralyzed/anxious that this is of interest (let alone exciting)...
I can believe, however, more now than ever, that "ya'll" (as isolationists) really are an intolerably conservative, mentally conditioned, and culturally immature/nascent country (borne every minute).
2004-02-01 10:52:31 PM  
Every time I see her, I'm reminded of Michael. Yet, I'm still a little turned on. Is that normal?

Heh....Justin certainly appears to be enjoying it (cough cough)
2004-02-01 10:54:34 PM  
Ok, logically speaking here. If CBS did not approve this, then why did Janet have a tassel on her hooter?

Then, I just have this to say.......How the hell did I miss that??????????
2004-02-01 10:58:34 PM  
If it was real, why the hell was she wearing pasties, and why the hell would one bra cup rip perfectly like that?

Definitely staged.
2004-02-01 11:04:03 PM  
just so you all know the thing she had on her nipple was a nipple shield. when you have your nipples pierced with a barbell you put a shield on first then the barbell holds it in place.
2004-02-01 11:05:30 PM  
For the sake of countering my own comments....

Ya know, after taking a good look at the hires photo, I'm not so certain it's a paisty. She's wearing a leather costume, and they make these little sticky things that cover up the nips to prevent chafing. There was an article on here a few months ago about Carrie Ann Moss and those things for her leather outfits for the Matrix movies. Awww who knows. Why the hell would Justin just reach over there and do that anyway. Prolly a publicity stunt anyway, but just an observation. I would much rather that have been Britney, but Janet will do.

it looks like this one shows that it's a piercing, in the shape of a star sun thing. so there. common sense tells you NSFW, and if you're working, GO HOME.

It's probably been stated but I don't want to read the entire thread. There was something covering it, just look for a large enough picture to be able to tell.

that thing was held on by two buttons... i'm amazed justin had the strenght to pull it off.

This is awesome. The geeks of the world re-unite. Im suppirsed we havent gotten any NASA pictures of this from thier rover.. or maybe a nice Hubble shot. Then we can all debate what it is. Looks like a 19 to me =) That last one though looks like an odd piercing or something like a nipple ring (similar to a cock ring)??

"If it was real, why the hell was she wearing pasties, and why the hell would one bra cup rip perfectly like that?"

It ripped perfectly because it's got snaps all around it. It was a bondage outfit and they're made with zippers and snapps and stuff in "the special places".

2004-02-01 11:37:03 PM  
Being pierced in my (admittedly male) nipple, I can imagine it might have smarted a bit if that shield got hooked at all on the cup, as he yanked it off.

...made me cringe.

*rewinds tape*

*watches entire half-time show*

Shiat man, I was ignoring the half-time show, and this is what happens. Then I waste my time watching the whole horrible show... should have just clicked on one of the many links, but nooooo...

And it looked like a ring to me.
2004-02-01 11:39:25 PM  
here you can see clearly that it's, as suggested, a nipple shield and *NOT* a pastie. I too am of the belief that justin was intended to rip _something_ off, but not the whole thing. The thing about nipple shields is they are pretty much permanent. they're secured by a nipple piercing, and typically worn to accent things like sheer blouses. I think Accipiter is on to something and the (probably sheer) red was supposed to remain behind.

If you look at the close-up picks where you can see the cup in Justin's hand, you can see that the red part is just a little piece of frilly trim.

This was completely on purpose, IMO.
2004-02-01 11:50:57 PM  
Not to add fuel to the fire, but in the last link above you can tell it's a nipple "ring" of some sort, not a covering at all.

I can't believe Americans are so sexually and intellectually paralyzed/anxious that this is of interest (let alone exciting)...

Amen, in most of the non-burka wearing world something like this wouldn't raise an eyebrow much less be the subject of Radio Talk Shows, FoxNews Pundents, and online discussions in the week to come.

It is now very very clear that she is not wearing a pastie. She does indeed have
a piercing with nipple shield.

That nipple shield doesnt really shield the nipple at all. It should be called and areola shield.

2004-02-02 12:07:20 AM  
OK, after some hi-res tivo images, that is NOT a pasty, it is full on nipple sheild. A barbell piercing with a shield that has a part that covers the areola.... this pic shows it really well.

oh and it was an accident like Timberfake sez, why is he HOLDING the scrap of fabric? just a thot.
2004-02-02 12:08:38 AM  
While my post of a nipple shield pic is not the same as what she is wearing I would also like to add that you can see the buttons on her outfit that make tear-aways possible.

Typical bondage type stuff... It's all over the outfit. Still hard to say whether or not it was intentional. We need video of what happened after the camera cut away. That would show us a good reaction.
2004-02-02 12:08:42 AM  
Its a breast. And an actual nipple too.

2004-02-02 12:15:33 AM  
Thats a nipple ring. Imagine a sun shaped piece of metal with a hole cut out. The nipple goes through the hole then a bar goes throuh both holding it on. Imagine the one below if it were star shaped...

2004-02-02 12:16:32 AM  
Please allow me to specify my last comment.

I meant that it was definitely on-purpose on the part of Janet and Pretty-Boy.

I can't really say about anyone else involved, like networks or show planners or whoever. I think the two got sneaky for publicity.

Maybe I'm giving them too much credit.
2004-02-02 12:16:37 AM  

from this pic, it wasn't intentional.

From watching the show. It was OBVIOUSlY intentional.
2004-02-02 12:17:40 AM  

Probably. And CBS probably didn't know about it. But that won't stop me from laughing in their faces.
2004-02-02 12:17:54 AM

Here are a ton of them.
2004-02-02 12:18:05 AM  
From the super-closeup, you can see snaps where the cover was attached, as if it were made to be easily detached.
2004-02-02 12:18:55 AM  

Best shot yet, thinking yet again bout a stunt gone wrong, damn that bar must have hurt.

This is the best look at it...there's nip there, but it's still not enough to really be a big deal. Could be publicity...Does she have an album coming out soon or something?

Justin's getting a reputation for grabbing girls he sings with...He stirred up the brits last year by grabbing Kylie Minogue's ass on a music awards show over there! Of course, I can't blame him for doing that, tho!

Justin better be careful, because Janet still has four other brothers than could probably whoop his ass pretty good!
2004-02-02 12:20:00 AM  
does wearing these shields hurt. i could see a lot of pain as my ninja star shield snags on my bra. perhaps just me being a pessimist. anyone with personal experience here?
2004-02-02 12:22:44 AM  
MTV has a photo on their website with the caption "see if you can find what's missing in this picture..." They're definitely not too ashamed of it happening.
2004-02-02 12:22:57 AM  
Not that anyone will see this and notice...

CBS's switchboard was bombarded within minutes of the incident? It's a farking nipple for christ sake! 99.99999% percent of the population have them. +50% of them have enlarged versions such as Janet here. It's a part of nature! It's a boob! Get over it! People are such prudes, I swear!
2004-02-02 12:23:21 AM  
A typical garbage halftime show.

The only good halftime show in the past 10 years has been U2... that was actually a great and meaningful production. Other than that, every year it's absolute scum.
2004-02-02 12:24:07 AM  
Look, dammit. It's a designer piece to match the outfit. Who's so damn gullible to think it was an accident? Networks work for ratings, not decency. The apologies were pre-written - probably for use "in-case" America responded in a way that warranted one. This was a good thing for all parties involved.

incidentally, speaking as the fashion police, her costumes sucked. the first one looked like she went to the ladies room and forgot to tuck in the rest of her wedding dress in her pants (knowhutimean?).

and incidentally #2, i do like the typo in this houston chronicle blog:
The steaker who kicked off the second half was captured by a linbacker, the Patriots' Matt Chatham, who tackled him. We know it must have hurt -- the guy wasn't wearing pads.

steaker. texas. heh.
2004-02-02 12:31:36 AM  
After seeing the nipple guard/whatever I thought maybe sqweak & Accipiter were right and the red stuff was suppose to stay behind but then I zoomed in on what Justin had in his hand:

[image from too old to be available]

As can clearly be seen, the red part is actually sewn into the top of the cup and isn't separate at all. So no, Justin didn't accidentally take more than he was suppose to.

No, that cup came off too easily for this whole thing thing not to be planned and there was no mistake in what was revealed.
2004-02-02 12:33:16 AM

2004-02-02 12:43:55 AM  
closest view

it's a piercing! and a nipple shield. not a pasty.

i think it was an accident. if it was a pasty... that would have been non-accidental. but i think ms. jackson would probably wear something similar most of the time. also, she doesn't have the most jawdroppingly gorgeous breasts - they're a bit saggy and floppy. that makes me think that it would be a better publicity move for her to not show them to 140 million people, especially because she's probably pissed off quite a number of the "think of the children" types. it doesn't make sense for her to be flashing people.
2004-02-02 12:47:08 AM  
You should see the flamers on her message board. Me thinks things are going to be very interesting in deed. LOL!
2004-02-02 12:47:36 AM  
you can also see that the thing he tore off was connected by buttons, as if it were meant to be torn off. i smell something fishy...
2004-02-02 12:51:04 AM  
sqweak, that shot kicks ass. makes me think this was at least partially a screw-up; they both have a severe, "Oh, fark" expression.

2004-02-02 01:01:59 AM  
From the close pictures, it is obvious that the cup had some sort of snap attachment. Why would you design an outfit like that if it wasn't meant to be torn away? Seems like allot of wasted seamstress time for a useless feature. On the other hand, makes for some nice PR. How many of us would be talking about Janet and Justin right now if it weren't for that stunt? Can't buy this kind of publicity.
2004-02-02 01:04:58 AM  
I dont care what her reaction was when it happened or what they were doing beforehand; if it wasnt meant to happen then why the hell would she even be wearing a pasty?

By the way, Drew, I think I singlehandedly managed to bring in about 12 new members tonight...
Sometime during a break in the 3rd quarter someone yells out 'go find those pics!'. They wanted to confirm whether it ws a pasty or not. Two girls go to the computer, theyre googling it for about 5 minutes or so, then I walk over and say 'move.' I type in and BAM! 'Janet Jackson flashes...'
I was a hero...everybody in the room is like 'omgwtf you found 'em in 2 seconds, where the hell did you go?', I say.

2004-02-02 01:58:33 AM  
For the last time people it wasn't a pasty!

My reading is that JT was supposed to expose the red bra only and simply grabbed too much. Matt Drudge was only partially right when he said that CBS had approved a shocking moment.

Unfortunately the stunt went wrong. The reaction pics completely tell the story.

Furthermore if JJ was planning to reveal her boob she would wear a proper pasty (a la Lil Kim) not an areola star contraption.

/feel free to debate me
2004-02-02 02:04:28 AM  
Bill Maher called it correctly a few days ago in his blog when he dubbed this one the "Boner Bowl" because the damned thing was sponsored largely in part by the new competing erection pills Levitra and Cealis...

Aand if that wasn't enough after commercials featuring a guy in a kilt cooling his nads over street grate a la Marilyn and Cedric getting his nether region bikini waxed I'm amazed at the concern over man-faced Janet's droopy boob. The whole thing was only missing someone talking out his penis and waving it. Apparently even the streaker was too uptight to do so.

Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes...

As to the Janet thing, my only question is why only one and not both? Or was that the 'malfunction' they were apologizing for?

Heck, I wouldn't have even known it had happened had I not cruised onto Fark before going to bed. Who watches the halftime show anyway?

To those of you exposing your children to the commercials and then being upset over the droopy boob shot, well, all I can say is I hope your kids grow up to be less uptight asshats than you.

Personally I thought the randy talking monkey commercial was the highlight of the night....
2004-02-02 02:05:28 AM  
In some of the clearer shots you can see clearly that it's not a tassel, a pastie or anything of that sort. It's clearly a areola shield. I'd call it a nipple shield, but you can see the nipple clearly in the middle. Only the areola is covered.
2004-02-02 02:12:37 AM  
Well, the nipple jewelry stock just went up a few more points, methinks.
