Janet Jackson doesn’t have time for mess. She especially doesn’t have time for the gawky turd who betrayed her and caused her to be blackballed from the entertainment industry! 2004’s Super Bowl halftime show featured a guest appearance by Ms. Jackson’s nipple and the world lost its shit. Whether is was a “wardrobe malfunction” as stated or a deliberate attempt to titillate America, it was a misfire. A misfire along the lines of the Hindenberg Disaster, New Coke, and our last presidential election.
Justin Timberlake returns to the Super Bowl today as the halftime show, and Ms. Jackson wouldn’t set foot in U.S. Bank Stadium if her life depended on it!
There’s been speculation that Janet would be the surprise guest during Justin’s performance (he claims they’re ok with each other now) and maybe they could have publicly buried the hatchet during a duet of “So Excited” (Justin can do Khia’s part). But Janet left her “NOPE” on Instagram last night.
“I WILL NOT” is pretty final. It was classy of her to go with “I WILL NOT” instead of “FUCK THAT.” Janet let Justin off pretty easy despite the backstabbing. But Janet’s family still bears a grudge. Janet’s bridge troll of a dad and an anonymous Jackson (I hope it was Rebbie) spoke to Page Six about their continuing displeasure with Former Ramen Head.
“If he’s such a gentleman, he’d make sure Janet [Jackson] is there,” Janet’s father Joseph Jackson said.
An “unidentified family member” feels that Justin climbed to the top on Janet’s back.
“Justin’s solo career took off after that and Janet was blackballed,” added another unidentified family member. “He says they are good, but let’s see him prove it and bring her out.”
Well, Rebbie, Janet says that won’t happen. (America will have to settle for a probable NSYNC reunion. Hopefully Joey Fatone will be in something skimpy.) But if she were to broadcast an impromptu performance of the entire Dream Street album from her home just as the halftime Show starts, millions of people would totally switch over to her livestream. Superbowl ratings would drop. And that silly Man of the Woods bullshit will reek of failure! Think about it, J.
