OK, if you non-Tivo people ever needed a real example of why Tivo rules, now you have it.

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.

CBS says YES boobie, NO - what a bunch of idiots!
2004-02-01 11:53:05 PM  
You see why we need the Superbowl in Houston every year?
2004-02-01 11:57:55 PM  
Looks like the deal where a nipple barbell holds the star like shape on,...better than a pastie...
2004-02-01 11:58:52 PM  
This plus Kid Rock dancing around wearing the US Flag makes me ask what the Fark were the producers thinking? I guess they wanted a little controversy for the media.

That titty is pretty white, though. Maybe she caught vitiligo from her brother but only has it in her chest. Ha!!! Titiligo!!!!
2004-02-02 12:02:29 AM  
Don't complain about the tit, people. It was magnificent!
2004-02-02 12:02:32 AM  
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.
2004-02-02 12:03:31 AM  
I say on purpose. Who on earth would designa tear-away costume that would come off that easily if it was not going to be on purpose. I love this kind of stuff...anything to push peoples sensibilities that little bit more.
2004-02-02 12:05:25 AM  

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

GIS for nipple shield...

I'm thinking screw up!

2004-02-02 12:05:40 AM  
I hope people don't feed the publicity monster by starting to buy Janet's albums.
2004-02-02 12:07:08 AM  
That nipple shield doesnt really shield the nipple at all. It should be called and areola shield.
2004-02-02 12:07:17 AM  

CBS = Craven Boobie Specialists
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.

/still wondering why this is a big deal
2004-02-02 12:09:47 AM  
RE: MoveOn ads vs. Janet's pierced boobie....

Please, just move on. Airing the ad and skipping Miss Jackson's revealing act wouldn't have demonstrated any better decision making ability on the part of CBS.
2004-02-02 12:11:08 AM  

Still hard to say whether or not it was intentional.

Give me a farking break. Why did Timberlake GRAB her boobie RIGHT AT THE VERY END?
2004-02-02 12:12:19 AM  
Pinhead wants his outfit back.

I'm just wondering how much the FCC is going to fine CBS. There's no way something that blatant is going to get past them, especially after they just dropped $500,000 worth of fines on Clear Channel recently. Powell Jr. is already in the fining mood...
2004-02-02 12:12:34 AM  

Oooooh... just that they were trying to "avoid controversy".
2004-02-02 12:13:39 AM

obviously, from this pic, it wasn't intentional. that star thing doesn't cover as much as you think (NSFW)
2004-02-02 12:13:57 AM  
just goes to show you how the media is deteriorating the minds of youth
2004-02-02 12:15:11 AM  
wow, i learn something new everytime i fark. nipple shields. who knew? not i.

it ain't a pastie, go with the muchosucko photo. poor jt. gay guys don't even look that horrified looking at breasts.
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...

Just one mans opinion at this point due to the way that these attention whores plead at times. All I'm saying is that the vote is still out for me.

So Step Off!
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.

2004-02-02 12:30:58 AM  
If they want me to watch the next Pepsi Vanilla Sunshine Cola Halftime show they better bring back U2 as the performer. They were amazing.
2004-02-02 12:31:09 AM  
Why would she be waring a pasty tassel if she did not know here boob would be exposed?
2004-02-02 12:31:10 AM  
Such a poor way to show her breast. They created enough buzz for sure. I mean come on... it just flopped out there like a soggy sponge.

"Sponge Janet Floppy Boob"
2004-02-02 12:31:13 AM  
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  
best resolution yet
2004-02-02 12:33:20 AM  
planned planned planned planned planned. like someone else said, at least SOMEthing interesting happened.
