Did Questlove also approve your shiatty piano bit while standing on Prince's shoulders, too? Or that goddamned camo/plaid suit? Or the lack of Left Shark?

Or how about the fact that, even though you're the asshole that tore off Janet's wardrobe during the "wardrobe malfunction," she was banned even as your mediocre ass was welcomed back, after spouting some mealy-mouthed diatribe about "stumbling through" it:

"I stumbled through it, you know, to be quite honest," Timberlake says in the interview. "I had my wires crossed and it's just something that you have to look back on and go, like, 'Ok, well you know, you can't change what's happened but you can move forward and learn from it.'"

Yeah. It's convenient that you got to "stumble back" to the Super Bowl but she's somehow still banned, right? I guess being this generation's "Vanilla Ice" makes that OK, whereas she's always going to be black and female.

Fark you, Timberlake. Go back to comedy.

I think he should have had Janet come in just so he could tear off part of her top again - but underneath is just a picture of Trump

Do you want to turn all the men in America gay?  Because that would turn them off boobies forever.

Timberlake is a coont. What piece of shiat.

Deleted a recorded episode of Super Mansion I was watching this afternoon and caught a little bit of The Talk on as the DVR did its thing. One lady referred to that abomination of a getup as "Duck Dynasty chic".

Personally thought it captured it perfectly.

Wow. One headline managed to include three "performers" who I care absolutely nothing about.

Really should've had Janet there.  If anyone decides that Miss Jackson (I'm nasty) needs to be whiteballed, I'm available

Timberlake is undeniably talented.... but i'm still allowed to say that he's a cornball in true life, without sounding like a hater, right? 

He just comes off like a guy who didn't have any buddies who busted his balls, growing up.   Its probably by virtue of being famous since a young age, so, its not his fault per se, but being constantly surrounded by yes men results in you not having an accurate perception of the worth of your personality.   Getting your balls busted by asshole friends is important, growing up.

I actually liked him MORE after last nite, because i was reminded that there is talent there.  I just think he's sort of a dork.

Trust me, Prince did more in his career than you'll ever accomplish posting banal, stupid comments on a news forum.

Questlove gave me a pair of drum sticks once (after a show in Athens Ohio). I didn't take as a sign to put on some crappy performance.

Each of these "performers" affect more peoples' lives in a single day than you will in your entire miserable lifetime, and one of them is dead.

I suspect Timberland was offered the gig before he asked where it would be. There's one recognizable star from Minneapolis, he didn't have a choice.

You have zero basis to criticise anything, ever.

Duets with the dead always come off looking like you're saying, "I'm nowhere near as talented as this dead person, but I'm sure as hell gonna ride those coattails as far as they'll take me."

The halftime show should be about long enough to cover "Land Speed Record"

Here's the truth from a guy who knows absolutely nothing about it:

Timberlake was feeling a bit full of himself having a record on the charts back when he was twenty something so he overreacted like an immature brat regarding an offhand comment from Prince, who was in no way attacking Timberlake.

The much older Timberlake now wishes like hell his young self had never spouted off and he sincerely admires Prince.

That's the trouble in today's world. You could spent 99 percent of your life just absolutely worshipping someone but if you said one bad thing in a tweet that got noticed you're stuck with that being your opinion until the end of time.

yea it's quite likely the Prince thing wasn't his decision and he had no say in the matter.

Wait, so people still think the Janet Jackson floppy titty thing was real and not staged/planned?

AND REHEARSED!

That's one of the things that truly pisses me off about Timberlake's little "oopsie - we good, dog?" interview bullshiat. He gave a tongue-in-cheek reply - remember, he's the asshole that actually coined the term, "wardrobe malfunction", to the press - when confronted.

Janet Jackson's banned for life from the Super Bowl, and this asshole, the one who was on-stage with her, the one who rehearsed that number with her, the one that was just as much to "blame" for scaring the Moral Majority with a brief flash of be-pastied mammary, is the one that gets to come back to the Super Bowl with an exploitative number based on a true artist that Timberlake shiat all over while the artist was alive.

Combine that with the NFL pulling a bait-and-switch for the National Anthem to prevent players from visibly protesting, and you realize that, maybe, just maybe, Colin Kaepernick's got a goddamned point.

I wish I could credit the Farker who described JT's halftime show as (paraphrasing) "the musical equivalent of beige". Nailed it. I watched it today, not ....horrible, not good. It was just there.

/ a little splash of color from the undisputed greatest halftime performer is probably the only reason anyone remembers who played this one

He's a truly talented individual, and he and the wife are genuinely nice to the help as far as I'm concerned, so I like him. Haters gonna hate.

Right because the entire cup of even a cheap bra won't tear the way her red bra tore unless it's been manipulated to do so.  She absolutely knew both pieces of cloth were going to come off. But when I look at his face after they came off, I'm not quite as sure that HE knew.  Maybe he did or maybe he didn't.  But she knew.

I love Janet Jackson and personally don't care that she flashed her boob. But her boob...her responsibility to either keep it covered or flash the pasty and accept the consequences.

I can't believe people are still debating Nipplegate when it happened 14 years ago and affected nobody.
