  • Twitter outraged for Janet Jackson after Justin Timberlake announced for Super Bowl halftime (tr)

    Justin Timberlake has been confirmed as the headliner for this year's Super Bowl LII halftime show — but not everyone is firing the confetti cannons. Folks haven't quite forgotten Timberlake's role in the supposed "wardrobe malfunction" at the 2004 halftime show with Janet Jackson, and how her career took a major hit while his star continued to rise. The incident, referred to often as "Nipplegate," occured when Timberlake exposed Jackson's breast, which was adorned with a nipple pastie, during the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVII. The planned nature of the performance was broadly debated, though Jackson's team said it...
  • Selena Gomez shows she's no Miley Cyrus during Cowboys halftime performance

    11/29/2013 7:50:14 AM PST · by Perdogg · 69 replies
    Grand Prairie-bred pop star, singer and actress Selena Gomez took the stage on her home turf Thursday as the halftime performer during the Thanksgiving Day football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. In part a product of the Disney Channel family, Gomez is clearly making a classier transition from adorable to adult compared to many of her peers (ahem, Miley). She was a vixen at center field Thursday, sporting a floor length skirt of leather fringe and golden, knee-high wedges. From hair and makeup to style and grace, Gomez exuded confidence and...
  • Obama Chases Cameras For Final Four Championship Halftime Show

    Continuing his pattern of appearing on every television show – and particularly, every major sporting event – that will have him, President Obama joined the halftime show of the championship game of the Final Four last night. There he was given a four-minute infomercial about what a great guy he was, in the guise of an interview with CBS’ Clark “Special K” Kellogg. If this wasn’t an in-kind contribution, nothing is. Did Obama talk about the game? Not really. Instead, he continued his obvious campaign to reach out to female voters with gems like this: "A couple of things. Number...
  • Halftime (email from Newt2012)

    Dear Rooster (that's my cat...he's a big Newt fan and supporter), Newt's senior adviser Randy Evans was on CNN this week explaining the delegate math that he outlined in his recent strategy memo . The bottom line is that halftime of the Republican nomination process is the Louisiana primary on March 24. Despite what the Romney campaign, the Washington Establishment, and the elite media want you to believe, this race is far from over. With no candidate remotely close to 1,144 delegates, the magic number needed to secure the nomination, the nomination will not be decided until the fourth quarter....

My "exposé" is meant to bring the rightful shame to the NFL & Goodell as they TARGET children...

    The Boss is owning up to a mistake. In an interview with Sunday's New York Times, Bruce Springsteen says he shouldn't have made a deal with Wal-Mart. This month, the store started exclusively selling a Springsteen greatest hits CD. Some fans were critical because Springsteen has been a longtime supporter of worker's rights, and Wal-Mart has faced criticism for its labor practices. Springsteen told the Times that his team didn't vet the issue as closely as he should have, and that he "dropped the ball on it." Springsteen went on to say: "It was a mistake. Our batting average is...

    NEW YORK - In the sensitive post-wardrobe malfunction world, some are questioning whether a guitar was just a guitar during Prince's Super Bowl halftime show. Prince's acclaimed performance included a guitar solo during the "Purple Rain" segment of his medley in which his shadow was projected onto a large, flowing beige sheet. As the 48-year-old rock star let rip, the silhouette cast by his figure and his guitar (shaped like the singer's symbol) had phallic connotations for some. A number of bloggers have decried "Malfunction!" — including Sam Anderson at New York magazine's Daily Intelligencer. Daily News television critic David...

    Rolling Stones Decry Super Bowl Censorship By DAVID BAUDER Tuesday, February 7, 2006 8:50 PM EST NEW YORK - Nobody turns off the microphone on Mick Jagger without a fight. Censorship of their songs during the Super Bowl halftime show was "absolutely ridiculous and completely unnecessary," the Rolling Stones said through a spokeswoman on Tuesday. The NFL, which produced the show seen on ABC Sunday night, silenced Jagger's microphone during sexually suggestive passages of two of the three songs the band performed before an audience of 90 million television viewers. The football league, still nervous over the Janet Jackson wardrobe...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 2, 2006 – Faith Jarvis, of Winston-Salem, N.C., traveled to the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, in Tempe, Ariz., to try to do her bit to support the United Service Organizations, a charity that has supported America's servicemembers for generations. She did help the USO, but Jarvis left with her own prize -- a diamond ring and a surprise reunion with her boyfriend-turned-fiancé, Army 1st Lt. Raymond Vera, a California National Guardsman with the 49th Military Police Brigade who has been serving in Iraq. Jarvis attempted to throw a football through a target 15 yards away. If she made it,...

    The other day, Sen. Zell Miller, the Right's favorite Democrat, gave a compelling speech in which he lamented the "deficit of decency" in America and pondered ways by which we might regain our moral bearings. During the speech he noted the many attacks on morality by the "Culture of Far Left America" and an out-of-control federal judiciary, remarking that it's happening in a number of areas "whether it is removing a display of the Ten Commandments from a Courthouse or the Nativity Scene from a city square" or "eliminating prayer in schools or eliminating 'under God' in the Pledge of...

    Most of us are well aware of what happened during halftime of the Super Bowl. The Federal Communications Commission is investigating, CBS is apologizing, and advertisers are asking for refunds. After the halftime display, shock and dismay circled the globe. Well, not really shock. The real surprise was that it wasn't that shocking. Did anyone really expect to have Janet Jackson, who resembles her brother Michael circa 1987, only more masculine and without the Cub Scout entourage, on stage, and not expect something controversial? Who would possibly think that P. Diddy, Puff Doodle, Pop Cheeto – or whatever he calls...

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Terri Carlin wants to make Janet Jackson's bare breast into a federal case. Carlin filed a proposed class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court this week against Jackson, singer Justin Timberlake, broadcasters MTV and CBS and their parent company, Viacom. Carlin alleges in the Feb. 4 suit that she and others who watched the halftime show during the Super Bowl were injured by the performers' lewd actions when Timberlake ripped off part of Jackson's costume, exposing her breast. In the lawsuit, Carlin charges that the exposure and "sexually explicit conduct" by other performers during the show injured...

    As Kid Rock finished screaming his part of the Super Bowl halftime show last Sunday evening and the camera faded away, he took the American flag that he had cut in the center and draped over himself like a poncho, and flung it to his drummer who dropped it on the ground where it stayed during the rest of the show. I thought about that this week and about how the whole fiasco was symbolic of where much of American popular entertainment is today. Except it's not lying on the floor, but rather lying in the gutter. The whole halftime...

    The chief federal regulator of broadcasting said Monday he is "outraged" by the Super Bowl halftime show which wound up with singer Justin Timberlake tearing off part of Janet Jackson's costume, exposing her breast. Timberlake blamed a "wardrobe malfunction," but Federal Communications Commission chief Michael Powell called it "a classless, crass and deplorable stunt." MTV, which produced the show, and CBS, which broadcast it, both said they had no idea that their halftime show Sunday night would include such a display. "CBS deeply regrets the incident," spokeswoman LeslieAnne Wade said. The two singers were performing a flirtatious duet to end...

    The Federal Communications Commission will investigate CBS's sleazy halftime show, Chairman Michael Powell said today. "I am outraged at what I saw during the halftime show of the Super Bowl. Like millions of Americans, my family and I gathered around the television for a celebration. Instead, that celebration was tainted by a classless, crass and deplorable stunt. Our nation's children, parents and citizens deserve better," Powell stated. "I have instructed the commission to open an immediate investigation into last night's broadcast," he said. A spokesman had earlier merely said the agency was launching a routine investigation because it had received...
