Janet Jackson set off a Super Bowl XXXVIII firestorm in 2004, when her right breast was bared during her nationally televised halftime show duet with Britney Spears’ ex-squeeze, Justin Timberlake.
Michael Jackson’s little sister ended Timberlake’s “Rock Your Body” with the heartthrob ripping off the leather cup that covered her breast as he sang, “Gotta have you naked by the end of this song.”
Timberlake later apologized, blaming the televised peep show on a “wardrobe malfunction.”
The split-second exposure, witnessed by up to 100 million viewers, revealed what appeared to be a sun-shaped metal ring atop the 37-year-old entertainer’s nipple.
Shortly after the show, a streaker with the Web address of an Internet gambling site written on his body delayed the start of the second half by running onto the field, causing players and security guards to tackle him.
NFL officials said they were “extremely disappointed by elements” of the show.
