Janet Jackson--Super Bowl - Page 3

post #61 of 81
Caught Janet Jackson's statement, on the morning news. The stunt WAS planned, during rehearsals and she says that CBS and MTV didn't know about it, ahead of time. She also "apologizes".

The Chairman of the FCC was on, too and he says that he is disgusted.

With all of the lewd, crude, rude, obnoxious behavior and foul-mouthed lyrics, these days, is it any wonder that I listen to country and oldies rock-'n-roll?

I agree with you Hissy, that is so true!!!!

So Ms. Jackson has nipples! I don't think anyone is surprised and I don't see it corrupting the youth of the world as they also have nipples.

Mind you I think her and Mr. Timberlake's music stinks and I can see why they went for publicity over content or talent.

In the immortal words of a close Brazilian friend, who was asked, "so what is with men's fascination with breasts?"

(you have to picture the suave Brazilian accent)

"Ahhhhhh....the breast....it's life, it's love....it's everything!"

Couldn't agree with you more, Cindy. (Well, except maybe the part about 'country' ).

I wish the entire Jackson family would take permanent leave of anything even remotely close to the public eye. Woo, isn't she sexy? More like hard up for publicity. Yuck.

I'm certainly not a Jackson fan, but I have to say I respect Janet a lot more than Justin for how she handled it. She at least had the juevos to come out and take responsibility for it. I'm sure there was a "wardrobe malfunction", but quite frankly as a performer, what did they expect doing it without rehearsals? (If that is to be believed..) I still think MTV knew what was going on before the performance.

Interesting development.

A Tennessee woman has filed a proposed class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court today against Janet Jackson, singer Justin Timberlake, broadcasters MTV and CBS and their parent company, Viacom.

She alleges that she and others who watched the halftime show during Sunday's Super Bowl were injured by the performers' lewd actions when Timberlake ripped off part of Jackson's costume, exposing her breast.

In the lawsuit, it is charged that the exposure and "sexually explicit conduct" by other performers during the show injured viewers.

For details see

Maybe we can get another thread going about "the Law is an ass." :-)

Cheers,

Jim

Let me guess, the injury was that her eyes popped out of her head?

Lets all go and sue Janet!

ROTFL!
Eeeek, a breast! Run for your lawyers!

Yes, the conduct was lewd & crude (I think the lyrics of that song were offensive, too), but lawsuits like this make a mockery of our courts, and devalue legitimate lawsuits. Consistent abuse of lawsuits places our system of legal redress for legitimate wrongs in jeopardy.

Maybe her husband tripped over while staring at the tv and bruised her ego?

tux-these are one of the reasons why no one is respected in the courtroom...she has her right but she is also ABUSING it!

That's ludicrous - we're talking about a bit of fatty tissue with milk ducts and a (covered) nipple being exposed here! Going by that woman's standards, we could be sued because our (castrated) cat uses his penis to urinate on the bushes in our backyard. As far as I've been able to discern, the vast majority of males have penises and testicles, and almost all woman have breasts, vaginas and clitorises, so what is so shocking about the fact that J.J. has breasts? Granted, that little exhibition was in poor taste, but who could seriously be "shocked" by the fact that she has a "protuberance" from her chest?
While I can understand that many people find the open display of primary or secondary sexual characteristics "objectionable" or "embarrassing", to claim that the same is "shocking" or "injurious" is really riduculous. We all have sexual organs, and use them. It is totally unnecessary to flaunt that fact, but why in the world should it be proscribed/penalized? Just to give you an example: A "current" politician I studied with once admitted that he was an avid reader of "National Geographic" as a kid, because of the naked breasts of African women shown. Once elected to public office, he railed against the access to such magazines as "Hustler" and "Playboy" to teens. I still fail to see the difference.

All I saw of the Superbowl was the half time show this year. And I was at work which made it all the more uncomfortable. It was after the plane had left and I went in the lounge for the Qantas club members to switch the TV off. My instructor/trainer also came in. We were going to discuss a new area of work when we glanced at the screen.

Both of us thought it was rather tacky and sadly quite indicative of the entertainment industry worldwide. The ending of the show was proof of that.

And as for injured by seeing a breast on television? Well what the pornographic material out there? How much injury does that cause?

I just had a rather nasty thought. I wonder if Attorney General John Ashcroft watched the Super Bowl? He was so offended by statues of nudes at the DOJ that he had them draped - if he saw Janet Jackson, he must have had a stroke, or at least fainted!

Oh heaven forbid! What if he sues too!

Due Ms. Jackson's overexposure, the Grammy Awards will be on a delay, this Sunday. CBS does not want any more repeats of boobenfloppen.

Looks like everyone is keeping abreast of this situation and milking this thread for all it is worth-


(said tongue-in-cheek) in case you couldn't tell!

LOL, Hissy!
We should get away from the boob tube, shouldn't we?

Just in case you thought it couldn't get any worse, tonight ABC News reports:

"Shops and distributors around the country are reporting a surge of interest in nipple piercing and adornments since Janet Jackson's breast-revealing performance at the game's halftime show."

Details at http://abcnews.go.com/wire/Entertain...0207_1035.html

What we hear of the "real world" out there makes us even more pleased that we have dropped out and become beach bums.

Cheers,

Ann, Jim, Miss Kitty and, soon, Samwise, on a Texas beach

I saw a close-up picture of one of those nipple shields and an explanation of how it is attached. I have one word:



OWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
