Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake have been invited back to Sunday’s Grammy telecast on CBS.

The only proviso: each of them must issue a one-sentence apology on screen about their actions at the Super Bowl half time show last Sunday.

The freak show returns.

It is obvious CBS wants to capitalize on the controversy TO GET RATINGS.

Freepers, find out the sponsor list and post it.

Start calling them now.

The sponsors for this show advertise on other shows you and your kids watch.

You parents pay for the products your kids buy from the sponsors of this show: candy, soda, clothes, music.

Tell the sponsors you are not going to buy their products, and follow through with it this time.

The Hollyweird beast is fed by your money Why do you choose to feed it, when you can actually make a difference this time?

Time to act, now...

Get ready for her fellow "artists" to come out on her behalf and give the finger to flyover country, concerning the whole thing.

I think a live sex act performed at halftime would be a fine expression of American freedom that we could all appreciate.

I'm guessing she'll agree to their terms, appear on the Grammys, and then pull a even more scandalous stunt.

I think "Friends" is over now, and besides, it would be more than "Friends" if they were humping anything.

Could we all appreciate it if it was Janet Reno and Donna Shalala out there doing the sex act?

I'm already boycotting CBS. The problem was that the idiots planning the half-time show let that trashy half-time show air to begin with. Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake actually did us a favor because now everyone knows how low our MTV culture has sunk.

Time for one of these maybe? It was effective in getting "The Reagans" pulled from CBS.

They see this as a ratings booster. This story is so popular, they think everyone will tune in just to see if they get flashed again.

The saddest part of all is, they're probably right. This will bring them huge ratings. They understand the dark side of human nature and they are one again exploiting it. Pitiful.

Or, maybe, just maybe, she and her little friends will use it as a chance to take a big swipe at President Bush.

"I made the mistake of believing that this was America. I forgot that we are living under a Nazi regime that, on a routine basis, executes American citizens for having a dissenting opinion. NO BLOOD FOR OIL!"

Hardly. In the amoral milieu of primetime, humping is just a way of saying "hello."

And, the fact that Janet threatened to sic Michael's new-found Nation of Islam buddies on them, if they didn't let her appear.

And given enough time the tide may completely turn. Don't be surprised to one day see Janet heralded as a visionary and trailblazer for this.

There is no need to apologize for a "wardrobe malfunction". Both of these "artists" have assured us that what happened was "in no way" intentional.

Please stop humiliating these "artists". Its like the communists making citizens admit to crimes never committed.

Who does CBS think they are kidding? This was the plan from the get-go. They had no plans to kick them off to begin with. The apology scenario was probably staged prior to the report that those two were being bounced. I'm glad that CBS thinks that an apology is all it will take to get over what was done. What's next? Letting murderers apologize for their crime(s)? It wouldn't surprise me in the least!

You're absolutely correct! After all, we are mere consumers, but they are the artistes and should dictate our consumer and moral preferences!!!

Gosh, I'm so ashamed of my judgemental attitude towards public decency and personal responsibility ;-)

Given what flopped outta Jackson's bustier last Sunday, "support" would be a good thing.

Its far more than just ratings and money, CBS has an agenda and also wants to flex its power, show that they can do anything they want to.

If people want to protest this the best way is to complain to McDonald's asking them if they want to have as a spokesman one that grinds women and rips off their clothes.

Use those exact words, especially if they hold some press conference or a stockholder's meeting. Make their new slogan "I love to see you squirm."

Bahahahaha! Did you ever have any doubt? <:D

This shows how "serious" they all were about their "apologies".

I was just on another thread saying that if this had happened in 1954 (50 years earlier), they would have probably been arrested, whereas now they're invited back!

Can they construct a full sentence?

Janet: "I'm sorry my dress was so ugly."

Justin The Ripper, "I didn't know, but I'm sorry."

I, for one, won't be watching the Grammys. I will, however, boycott the sponsors and protest, via email and phonecalls.

Interesting that AOL is one of the sponsors. They are also (along with Time Warner) Kerry's second largest contributer to his presidential campaign. Has anyone in the press called for a statement from him on this issue?

I submitted a complaint about McDonald's spokesman Timberlake on McDonalds website. I received this perfunctory reply today:

Hello Lisa:

Thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald's to share your concerns with us.

While McDonald's had nothing to do with the planning or execution of the Super Bowl's Half Time activities, there was obviously an inappropriate incident. Everyone involved has said it was an unfortunate mistake, and their apologies are certainly in order. However, we appreciate the time you've taken to contact us and want you to know your comments will be shared with our Marketing Department.

Again, thank you contacting McDonald's.

Linda
McDonald's Customer Satisfaction Department

Please do not reply to this e-mail. If you wish to contact McDonald's Corporation again, please visit our website.

Guess what? From now on, I'm going to Burger King!

goes to show just how seriously CBS is taking the FCC investigation. If they wanted to show any hint of being sorry the event happend there would be no question that neither JJ nor Justin would be on the Grammys.I hope the FCC considers CBS's actions as showing no remorse and nails 'em with the heaviest fine they can.

I will also no longer support McDonalds. Does anyone have a list of sponsors of CBS's Michael Jackson special?

We should also keep a pressure on FCC. They have the power to take action.
