that occured with one of the Jacksons and another star during the Superbowl Halftime show? I saw it on the news this morning. I'm shocked but not surprised. My DH thinks it was planned even though they say it was an accident.

I think it's a conspiracy so we forget about Michael Jackson's problems and focus on Janet....

Or, it's a conspiracy so the American people forget that winter is so darn cold and it's snowing again....

Or, it's a conspiracy so we forget that the President just submitted a $2.4 TRILLION budget to Congress....

OK - I didn't see it live, but it's pretty silly! MTV is full of tricks, but who knows!

Was the game that uneventful?

We watched Whale Rider and had popcorn! Not sports fans here.

Someone sent me the picture since I missed the whole event. LOL I said the same thing. Why would you wear a metal pasty on your nipple if you didn't intend for someone to see it? Just in case your shirt falls off in public some day? I think it was definitely planned, but they apologised when they realized the ruckus it caused. And it wasn't really a bra that ripped off, she was wearing a corset type thing with cups (kind of look like underwire) so it was one of the cups that ripped off. Each cup at a frilly red lining though so I wondered if when he ripped it there was supposed to remain a red sheer covering but instead the whole piece ripped away. I could see that happening, that he grabbed the wrong part of the fabric and tore the whole piece rather than the top layer. Still, it was pretty "fresh" for a family audience.

Personally it wouldn't bother me that much. I'd rather DD see Janet Jackson's breast than see someone being beaten or killed. But I think it was rather unnecessary.

My husband and I saw the whole half-time show. But we did not see that incident. We were shocked when we heard about it on the news. Apparently, as soon as it happened some screens blanked out or were turned up to the balloons (which is what mine did).

I saw Justin pushing and pulling on Janet and her pushing him out of her way constantly. I did not think they were getting along on stage, I even made the comment to my DH that she looked irritated at him. I just thought he looked like a clumsy bumpkin trying to dance. I never saw him grab her corset though.

I bet it was planned too. Come on. She was wearing a pasty on one side according to the news reports. UH HUH-how convenient that he exposes that particular side.

Um, according to my DH, who received a close up photo and fwd it to me...

It's a nipple piercing, not a pastie thingy. Yep, a bar bell holding a tribal sun. YIKES, that must have hurt. And, the photo also shows that there are snaps along the underwire of the bra/corset thing. Hm, easy access, easy on / off.

Hoo boy. Now the FCC wants to conduct an investigation...into what? Her breast?

What about all the erectile dysfunction commercials that aired during the game? Guess they all better think about what they're selling.

Just my humble opinion. ~Michelle
