It sure is just like Janet Jackson‘s family is still salty about Justin Timberlake‘s role in her infamous nipple-baring 2004 Super Bowl halftime reveal performance … and you know what? Can’t blame them !!!
Janet’s fam is speaking out this week ahead of Justin’s upcoming halftime show performance at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, and the whole fam is adamant that maybe it’s Janet who should be get a shot at redemption here alongside Justin, too!
We’ve already covered the fact that Justin is apparently NOT going to include Janet in his Super Bowl halftime performance, but Janet’s father Joseph Jackson plainly thinks that’s the incorrect move( below ):
“If he’s such a gentleman, he’d make sure Janet[ Jackson] is there.”
Another unidentified family member told the New York Post( below ):
“Justin’s solo career took off after that and Janet was blackballed. He says they are good, but let’s understand him demonstrate it and bring her out.”
But as we are aware … that feeling hasn’t swayed Timberlake, who merely the other day opened up about how he’s not going to have any special guests at the halftime prove( below ):
“To be honest, I had a ton of grand notions about special guests. There’s a whole list. I imagine Vegas has a lot of odds on it, from’ NSYNC to Jay[ JAY-Z] to Chris Stapleton to Janet.”
And yet … nothing.
Guess we’ll discover for sure on Sunday, but it increasingly looks like Janet will not be afforded the same shot at redemption as Justin.
