SOME COMMENTS FROM THE NEWS ABOUT HALFTIME SHOW
Gosh, that was quick. The denial and outrage has been given by all big wigs involved and the performers are calling it a mistake. Here are some comments:
CBS and the NFL disavowed a Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday night that concluded with Justin Timberlake baring Janet Jackson’s right breast.
The incident was so upsetting to the NFL that it suggested MTV won’t be permitted to produce another halftime show.
“We were extremely disappointed by moments of the MTV-produced halftime show,” said Joe Browne, NFL executive vice president of communications. “They were totally inconsistent with assurances our office was given about the content of the show. It is unlikely that MTV will produce another Super Bowl halftime.”
CBS, a sister of MTV (both are owned by Viacom), also appeared to be taken aback by Sunday’s show.
“CBS deeply regrets the incident that occurred during the Super Bowl halftime show,” a network spokeswoman said. “We attended rehearsals throughout the week, and there was no indication this would happen. It did not conform to CBS broadcast standards, and we would like to apologize to anyone who was offended.”
Timberlake said he did not intend to tear the cup off Jackson’s black leather bustier, exposing a nipple piercing shield.
“I am sorry that anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance of the Super Bowl,” Timberlake said in a statement. “It was not intentional and is regrettable.”
If it was a wardrobe malfunction, what was supposed to happen when he reached over there?
