"I am sorry if anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance at the Super Bowl," Timberlake said of the incident. "It was not intentional and is regrettable."
MTV, which produced the halftime show for sister network CBS, issued a statement shortly after the game saying, "The tearing of Janet Jackson's costume was unrehearsed, unplanned, completely unintentional and was inconsistent with assurances we had about the content of the performance. MTV regrets this incident occurred and we apologize to anyone who was offended by it."
Jackson did not release an official statement after the game, but her representatives told MTV News that she apologizes for the incident.
Which part is more offensive of the public event: The continued over-sexualized nature of our culture as if women have no other part to their personality than their bodies and they can be groped by the whim of the male? or is it the bull@#$% lying that comes aftewards? We suck at relationships in our culture, WE SUCK AT THEM! Healthy relationships are the result of hard work, honesty and trustworthiness. Lying destroys all of that. Lying is our native tongue in America and its completley justified for $$. I hate it. I hate lying. It is destructive behavior and I can more easily explain Janet's misuse of her body than I can the acceptance of the justified lies. I have never bashed MTV, and I watch some of the programming, particularly the docmentaries. But they revealed themselves to have nothing to offer culture or art but cheap cliche and lawyer talk. Hey MTV, welcome to the world of being irrelevant. You just lost some stock in creative culture.
