NFL denies banning Janet Jackson from Super Bowl almost 14 years after ‘wardrobe malfunction’

On Sunday, Timberlake announced his return to the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show, but there was no mention of Janet Jackson. That is, until her fans, angry about what happened the last time they performed together, forced the NFL to issue a statement saying she hasn’t been banned from the Super Bowl.

In 2004, the former *NSYNC band member was performing his hit song “Rock Your Body” at the Super Bowl with Jackson when he said he unintentionally pulled off Jackson’s nipple guard, briefly exposing her right breast. A national uproar then ensued.

“I DO have the time. Half the time…#PepsiHalftime #SBLII @Pepsi @NFL @JimmyFallon @FallonTonight,” Timberlake, 36, tweeted the news that he would be the next halftime performer along with a video featuring Jimmy Fallon.
