When news broke that Justin Timberlake was performing at the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime show, many people's first thought was the wardrobe malfunction incident he was involved in with Janet Jackson, back at the 2004 Super Bowl.
Fans of Jackson took to social media to say that Timberlake should issue an apology to the "Control" star, while he's onstage at the sporting event. Others suggested something else he can do to rectify the "nipplegate" scandal that caused Jackson much public backlash and Timberlake barely any. Some believe that Timberlake should invite Jackson to perform onstage with him.
One person tweeted: "Unless Justin Timberlake starts his set by introducing Janet Jackson with an apology and then continues watching quietly while she does 12 minutes of her catalog solo, the Super Bowl can keep this halftime show." Another Twitter user added: "Congrats on getting the Super Bowl halftime show, @jtimberlake. Invite @JanetJackson for a duet. You, uh. Kinda owe her."
Now, a source close to Jackson says that there's a possibility that this Jackson-assisted performance can actually happen. But, it's up to Timberlake to make the move. "The door is wide open,” an insider told Entertainment Tonight. “If Justin or his team did reach out, Janet would perform with him again in a minute."
Mr. Timberlake, get Ms. Jackson on the phone now! Let's make this happen!
