CBS STRIPS JANET JACKSON FROM THE GRAMMYS (Hollyweirdos contempt for middle-class values)
NY POST ^ | February 7, 2004 | LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Posted on 02/07/2004 4:29:24 AM PST by Liz

THE ISSUE: CBS's decision to ban Janet Jackson from Sunday night's Grammys.

I'm so glad that CBS is giving Janet Jackson the boot from the Grammys ("Grammys Boot Janet - Shamed CBS Execs Can't Bare to Put Her on Again," Feb. 5). She certainly hasn't done her brother any good with her disgusting actions. I think the whole Jackson family has some screws loose - particularly that Jacko nut. That Justin Timberlake is also a joke. Does he actually think anyone believes that he didn't know what would happen at the halftime show? Ruth Lindemann Colorado Springs, Colo.

Betcha Hollywhacked liberals are sitting around, sipping Cristal, cluck-clucking that their "precious rights" are being infringed.

Hollyweirdos again demonstrate their utter contempt for middle-class values.

The fact is their "precious right" to engage in offensive behavior stops where the eyes of America's children begin.

Hollywarped denizens stoop to depraved performances in order to hype their sorry careers.......but it is at our expense.

We, the people, are expected to let the Hollywarped crowd corrupt our culture and scandalize the children so that they can profit.

Better think again, Follywood.

Liz, I saw the funniest report on Channel 11 last night. They had an interview with the designers of Janet's bustier, which she had purchased from their shop here. It looked like a high-end S & M boutique. Anyway, these girls were mightily offended that the whole event was being referred to as a "wardrobe malfunction", and they insisted that the bustier had been altered after it left their shop. Specifically, when they designed and made the bustier, there were no snaps in the bra cups.

They just wanted to tell the world that they made a quality product that didn't "malfunction". (And they wanted some press, too, but why shouldn't they)

I so wanted to post that here, but the article wasn't on WPIX's website when I checked, and I couldn't find anything on a search.

With each pasing a day, another author, actor, sports figure, or musician says or does something that renders them moot in my book. Liberal Hollyweirdos, just dont see the damage they are doing to themselves, or to the country. But I think people are starting to wake up. A connection can be drawn from our spiraling downward morality and 9-11. There was a time when people took what la-la land said as Gospel. Not anymore it seems..

You should have seen the clueless J.C. Chasez (former NSYNCer) on CNN yesterday having himself a pity party with the help of the CNN anchor. This kid was bemoaning his being dumped from the Pro Bowl by the NFL. He wasn't dissing the NFL really, just viewers who were all upset over nothing really, who were impinging on his artistic freedom (he has a right to get paid you see, not just produce). The CNN chick who was interviewing him was ever so sympathetic. Talk about the blind leading the blind.

Thanks for the "inside the bustier" info (snicker).

Of course, the whole thing was staged. I didn't watch the Super Bowl but I saw the halftime vidoes repeated over and over.....and it was clear Dumberlake calculatedly pulled off Jackass' leather cover to expose her boob. This brainless jerk Dimmerlake actually claimed he didn't know what had happened.

It's infuriating---and a plusperfect example of Hollywarped's contempt for our values and for America's innocent children---that Hollyweirdos actually thought we'd believe the stunt wasn't planned.

You should have seen the clueless J.C. Chasez....on CNN ....having himself a pity party with the help of the CNN anchor.

Bad enough, but MSNBC's Pat O'Brien made a complete a** of himself. A FReeper posted this tidbit.

O'Brien of "Access Hollywood" on MSNBC commented on comments he captured from Timberlake right after the NFL Boob Peel, when he caught Timberlake smirking how the two artists just wanted to give people "something to talk about."

Flash forward: The young dimwit Timberblank realizes he's in trouble and on the spot he invented "wardrobe malfunctions" and "red bustiers underneath."

O'Brien had an explanation for MSNBC. O'Brien claims he shows Timberlake is not a liar, but is telling the truth. Are you ready? Pat O'Brien stated on MSNBC that he thinks Justin Timberlake DID NOT REALIZE JANET JACKSON WAS STANDING THERE WITH HER BREAST EXPOSED! Yes, dear children. Pat O'Brien thinks the idiot Timberlake's inane comment "something to talk about" referred merely to the generally risqué theme of the performance (as if that makes a difference), and that O'Brien does not think Timberlake would lie.

O'Brien actually thinks? O'Brien says he thinks Timberlake realized sometime later after people told him and he saw a tape of the performance what had happened. Rarely have we seen such idiocy-on-parade via O'Brien's craven celebrity suck-up. Usually it's a bit more subtle. O'Brien is easily the biggest celebrity sycophant out there.

My response is that audiences don't like to be used, to be manipulated by depraved career-obsessed entertainers with CD's to sell,who expose themselves on primetime to hype their sorry careers......and then lie about it. This is not about "exposing just one breast." It's the co-opting of audiences for personal profit as Jackson and Timberlake did.

Obsessed, success-driven entertainers are so depraved, they would do anything to boost their careers. If Jackass and Dumberlake thought fornicating a dog at half time would sell CDs, they'd do it in a nanosecond. If CNN, O'Brien and the rest of the brain-dead libs continue to defend Jackass and Timberlake's lies, we should notify the FCC.

"....cluck-clucking that their "precious rights" are being infringed...."

I wonder whether we will be treated to jokes and snide comments (as well as loud, raucous rounds of applause from the audiance to those verysame comments) by the presenters at the Grammy-podium about the 'publics' prudishness.

Last I heard both Jackass and Dimmerlake had both been pulled from the Grammys.

But then you never know about these disturbed, mentally challenged Hollyweirdos.

They're liable to replay the halftime vid at the Grammys just to show how "tolerant and compassionate" they are (puke).

As I posted above, you never know what these disturbed, mentally challenged Hollyweirdos will do. They're liable to replay the halftime vid at the Grammys just to show their (puke) "tolerance and compassion."

However, I would say to Hollywarped....." better not declare war on America b/c you have everything to lose."

Don't even bother with their views. I have an actress niece who is so incredibly silly that she spouts her adament disdain for the right and everyone who is conservative. However, when you ask her why, or challenge her position with facts, she cannot back up her stand.

Of course, this is a girl who didn't know that Taiwan is an island off Mainland China and thought it was "sort of" around Hawaii.

Most of them are complete and utter ninnies.

My questions are why are these people such a force for public policy? Why are the politicians listening to them? And finally, why are Americans so willing to lay down their responsibility to foster good citizenship and protection of our progeny, and allow their silliness to pervade the country?

BTW, I think the exposure of her breast as viewed by them as a shocking moment, was so childish as to be beyond my comprehension.

It was akin to a child urinating in the snow with his penis to spell his name.

They are too silly, too vapid, too immature, too self-absorbed, too ego-ridden for words.

Perhaps I am like my parents who complained loudly about Elvis on Ed Sullivan, but it did not seem that Ms. Jackson's boob was the most objectionable thing at the Super Bowl 1/2 time show. The bumping, grinding, lyrics, etc were terrible. I am certain that the Grammy Awards Show will be full of that stuff. If I want porno, I can download it on my computer and presumably get the real thing rather than the stuff that is just as offensive, but with clothes on TV.

So long as we watch this trash and so long as we buy the goods of the advertisers who sponsor it, we will be bombarded with sleaze.

I didn't watch the halftime show but I'm sure your review was accurate. I did see the boob vid and to me it looked calculated and planned to shock. Career junkies Jackass and Dimmerlake got what they wanted .....their names splashed all over the media.

Funny thing is, even before the Janet/breast thing I left the room in disgust, so I missed it anyway.

I didn't want to be there when they rolled out the golden calf.

Too many disturbed people revere the cult of "celebrity." Hollywarped forcefeeds its acolytes with vapid TV entertainment shows. Broadcasting the Grammys and the Oscars also sedates the celebrity cult. Hollyweirdos encourage putting braindead celebs like Jackass, Madonna, and Britney on pedestals b/c it sells tickets and CDs, etc.

On Fox someone said that Janet's outfit was from a place that caters to the S&M crowd and they are furious that it was claimed "wardrobe malfunction" and maintained that their clothes do not malfunction. I don't know if this is true or was supposed to be a joke since I missed the beginning.

What is as bad as seeing a grown man cry is to see a grown man with a job like yours.

Hey Pat we are mocking you and your silly career (oops wrong word}. Some of us would prefer to bag groceries rather than be just another pop culture pimp.

Dude I am embarrassed for you.

Janet the Bare-Breast Jackson
(Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer melody)


You know Micheal and Marlon and Jacko and Tito
Randy and Jermaine and Rebbie and LaToya
But do you recall the most famous Jackson of all
Janet the Bare-Breast Jackson, had a very shiney nipple
And finally when she beared it, you would even see it’s pierced
But Janet’s father Joseph, use to scream and steal her Toys
He never let poor Janet, sing with all the Jackson Boys.


Then one foggy super bowl day, MTV came to say
Janet with your breasts so big, won’t you play our half-time gig
Then how the tabloids loved her, and they shouted out with glee
Janet the Bare-breast Jackson, your career is history

Janet Jackson gets dumped for showing a breast and apologizing for it? Timberlake lies and stays on? Like a typical man, he saved himself first.

The first point is good. The second ("like a typical man") is misandristic garbage.

Who thinks this woman ought to spend a few days with the troops in Baghdad?

How many here have heard or seen any outrage at the way hollywood female celebrities parade before the cameras during the Oscars, emmys, golden globe awards with half of both breasts exposed, or wearing see through gowns that plainly show their boobage and rear ends? Has the outrage against them been anywhere near that which has been expressed against Janet?

Why all this fuss now? What does anyone expect from hollywoood? So far I haven't heard anyone banning or suing Madonna and Brittany for practically sucking out each other's lungs. That behavior was clearly as repulsive as the Janet and Justin show.

And why is Janet seemingly getting most of the blame? Justin was just as responsible. Even if he claims that he didn't expect that the entire garmet would tear away, just the idea that he meant to only pretend that he was going to tear the material away from her boob is just as tasteless.

I'm absolutely, positively convinced that if Nelly had grabbed at Brittany's breast (especially after grabbing his crotch), he may not have gotten out of that stadium alive, and Brittany would have been characterized as the victim, and Nelly would have been pilloried. A double standard for sure.

The public would absolutely not tolerate a black man tearing at the breast of a white woman, especially on TV. I recently saw a movie about a free black man (the movie was set in the 1870s or so) and a white female school teacher who fall in love. They share a very chaste kiss in the school room that was observed by a local. Of course the black guy was caught and shot to death. The school teacher was beside herself with grief and asked the sheriff why did they kill him? After all, they were just kissing. The sheriff told her, "Ma'am, we didn't kill him because you kissed him, we killed him because he kissed you." In other words, "black man, keep your hands off our white women or your carcass is history."

What about Justin Timberlake? If they're letting him stay, they're just making Janet Jackson a scapegoat and aren't sorry about a damn thing (except that they "got caught" by public opinion).
