Some are characterizing Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime performance as “underwhelming.” I’d go with “meh.”
Too bad, too, because if he had just listened to, I don’t know, EVERYBODY and brought Janet Jackson as a ringer tweaking us with the ol’ Nipplegate scandal in 2004, it would have been much more fun.
He denied it was going to happen. And then Janet herself said she wasn’t going it. But who really killed the idea? The league? NBC? Because JT has a new album to plug and she doesn’t?
There was also a rumour that because the game was in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis that the Purple One was going to make a hologramic appearance.
Nope. His Princeness, as you shall see, did show up (and his estate was okay with this) but the effect was if not exploitive then certainly opportunistic.
