Janet

Regrets Apology for 'Wardrobe Malfunction'

9/21/2006 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

janet2_superbowl_getty_300-1It has been over two and half years since Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake had their infamous 'wardrobe malfunction' at the 2004 Super Bowl and for the first time Janet is speaking out about it to Oprah Winfrey.

During an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," to air on September 25, the singer has now said she regretted saying sorry because it made her look guilty for something that was an accident.

She also hinted at dissension between her and Mr. Timberlake during the interview, saying she has not spoken with Justin since their performance on February 1, 2004. When Winfrey asked if she felt betrayed, Jackson would not answer directly, but said cryptically, "Loyalty comes first to me."

Please don't insult our intelligence. The build up of Justin grabbing at your chest to reveal what - a "Peace" patch over your nipple. Get real - own it - you were going for the shock value.

No matter who you like or dislike, BOTH individuals KNEW this "malfunction" was going to happen. They did it for shock value, but ended up looking like FOOLS.

Football is supposed to be family entertainment, not boob tube. Aren't porn stars (Jenna Jameson) supposed to be at the next Superbowl for the half-time show? Yup, won't be watching that, either. If people are going to freak (including myself) over Jackson and Timberlake's fiasco, wait until the hype on that show comes out.

Love Jenna, but keep that in the bedroom, not on a family show!

Ms. Jackson is not a loser and neither is J. Timberlake....Madonna has done a whole lot worse and then some and you people can't get enough of her. Janet just got a lot of flak because she is black...yes I threw the race card out there because it is true. I wish she wouldn't have apologized for it.

i have one thing to say about this i have been a Janet fan for years and i'll be damned if i'm going to sit here and listen to you people talk trash about her. you know things do happen and i truely believe it was an accident! Janet is not that type of person to get up there and pull something like that! And for you people to sit here and call them names(losers,wacked out floozy) i think you all need to take a long hard look at yourselves, where are your morales in calling someone that? they make more money then you people will ever see!!! Don't hate on Janet or Justin!! They were simply doing what they practiced in their routine and the outfit malfunctioned... it could happen anywhere to anyone REMEMBER THAT!!!!!

i honestly believe that it was an accident. i saw the half time show and at the end she looked totally shocked. but when it all comes down race played a factor b/c no one was saying anything to justin, he's just as guilty as janet and the way she was treated afterwards was wrong. but maybe its the color of your skin b/c when Madonna and Britney kissed at the VMA's was inappropriate for young viewers to watch whether it was on a cable network or not, my child saw it at 7pm. so how come they didnt get the 3rd degree like janet? And now MTV wont even show any of Janets videos.

No, I don't agree with the "race card" theory. In regards to the VMAs (more garbage) that's society's fault for allowing 2 chicks to kiss; people look the other way, unfortunately. You have to admit it would entirely unacceptable for 2 guys to kiss on the same program; the mass majority would flip out, me included.

I don't like chicks kissing chicks, guys kissing guys, breasts exposed, or chicks in lingerie waving their goods. It's NOT APPROPRIATE FOR FAMILY TV.

IF you would have seen the entire performance, you would ahve seen Janet being very embarrassed. If that ws planned she wouldnt have reacted the way she did. You say this shouldnt be n family TV, what about adds for condoms, birth control, periods? Those are facts of life just like a breast but no one seems to mention those kinds of commercials. No ones mentioning the baby magazine showing a close up of a baby nursing from his mother. Just get over it and deal with it. Its2006 and things are different from 5 or 10 years ago and they are going to continue to change. If you dont like what you are watching, then change the channel or turn off the TV

I don't know what possessed you to put phlebotomyqueen as your name. I'm sure you're cleverly trying to insult the rest of the people on the comments here that you don't agree with you. How dare they huh? Nice grammar there btw. We all love reading run on sentences with punctuation where-ever the hell people like to put it. Anyway, who the fuck cares about this? So Janet feels betrayed. My heart goes out to her. pffft. Why is it relevant that they make more money than anyone commenting on here? I really needed that pointed out by you. They are so much better than us because they make so much money and that's why we shouldn't criticize them out of envy? I don't care if she did it on purpose or it was an accident. It happened 2 1/2 years ago... get over it.

Janet should have thought that with the act of ripping off a piece of clothing material from her breast could have caused the possibility of a malfunction, so why did she risk that? My theory on her shocked reaction: she could have been "acting" shocked; she does have acting experience, and to act shocked is not a difficult thing. And Janet or Justin are not moral role models, so they lie too. Also, the way Justin was behaving right after the incident, made me suspicious as well. But the main point is that type of act is inappropriate for family tv time, malfunction or not.
