We watched the Super Bowl – who didn’t – and were paying a fair amount of attention to the halftime show, but never even had a hint that anything “peculiar” had happened until I ran downstairs and did a quick check of Blogcritics. We were getting 5,000 visitors an hour. This was noteworthy. The Janet Boob Bomb had hit. The fallout continues to reverberate through the media, the political sphere, and has forced a discussion on the state of the culture:

WARNING: Several of the stories below include images of near-nudity, or link to images of near-nudity (on the other hand, if you haven’t seen the Janet footage by now, welcome back from Mars!):

About Eric Olsen

  • http://www.casperbass.com/ Casper

    What am I, chopped liver (he says, with tongue firmly planted in cheek…)?

  • Eric Olsen

    Sorry dude! I searched by “Janet Jackson” instead of “Super Bowl” – now rectified.

  • Robert

    Well, so much for calling Janet the “only normal” Jackson. I guess the only “normal” Jackson was Andrew Jackson!

  • Eric Olsen

    There’s always Tito!!

  • http://www.resonation.ca Jim Carruthers

    (raising hand) I didn’t watch the Superbowl, never have, and probably never will. Football is for fags (like John Wayne, this one time I was in Brentwood, and he came to the front door in a frilly pink dressing gown), now Sumo, that’s a real sport.

    Plus we don’t get the commercials up here.

    However there was one point I wanted to make. I noticed on teevee shows from the US, they sometimes have a disclaimer along the lines of:
    “may contain nudity or violence”

    Yet, in Canada, on non-US shows they say:
    “contains nudity, sex, coarse language and/or violence” (and in the case of Fashion TV usually give you a teaser clip in the bumper so you know what you’re going to get).

    So what’s with the pussyfooting in the States. Is this thing just a cover your ass bit of legalese? I want a guarantee, dammit!

    Which is why I watched Russ Meyer’s “Supervixens” last night.

  • Patricia Jay

    The breast exposure and crotch grabbing during superbowl halftime was cheap, sleazy and totally inapropriate. I don’t believe that the exposure of Janet Jackson’s breast was a fluke ……why wear a nipple cover…… After that and some of the other tackless sexual bundary pushing on prime time TV, I am really affirmed in my father’s opinion, (He worked for ABC TV in Chicago for 30+ years)that it is mostly crap pandered by money-hungry, power-drunk people who are whittling away at our moral fabric. I thought he was so wrong about that when I was a teenager……..If I want to go see what someone considers they are doing possibly art, I will choose to go to a gallery or museum or appropriate venue. But I will not have someone shoving it in my unsuspecting face or slipping it in disguised as entertainment appropriate for the entire family!!! You are very responsible for this CBS just as much as the Artists were! Wake up.

  • Chris Wilson

    Ok Jim,

    Thanks for the John Wayne expose. I’m sure you will make great headlines with that. I will forward on to National Enquirer.

    As for Janet Jackson’s now-legendary boob debut – isn’t she performing on the Grammy Awards next Sunday? Isn’t she one of the highly advertised performers on that program? Isn’t that program also going to be broadcast on CBS? Just watch the ratings roll in. I expect CBS to continue “apologizing” throughout the week, at least until the Grammy presentations.

  • http://www.foliage.com/~marks Mark Saleski

    like John Wayne, this one time I was in Brentwood, and he came to the front door in a frilly pink dressing gown

    In poor taste is an understatement…it was inappropriate for any time, much less a football game half time show….I have emailed CBS, and every other organization I can think of stating my opinion..which, thank God, is my right…but I am so disappointed that it had to happen in Texas….I’m just disappointed in the way it was all handled…my opinon only..

    criminy, was there such a big uproar when lil’ kim did this during the grammys (or whatever lame awards show that was)?

    Who cares ? The whole half time show should have been naked. We as Americans need to stop acting like little children. (OOOHHH LOOK BOOBIES)

    Give me a break ya loosers

  • CN

    I agree with Erik, grow up…

  • Mel

    After seeing the clip a few times I think that this was all a publicity stunt. The way Justin grabbed the clothing peice on her breast it definitly did not seem like an accident. If it was a publicity stunt it was extremley tacky.

    By the way Dammit Janet is a very cute touch (Rocky Horror Picture Show)

  • Carolyn Wilkins

    I know that you have heard it all today but this was without a doubt the most horrible half time show ever. Who does Kid Rock think that he is wearing the American Flag like that especially when our men and women are losing their lives everyday for our country. As far as I am concern that was terrible that he even had the nerve to wear our flag. As far as Janet Jackson goes I was disgusted about this show. As far as I am concern I was totally shocked and disappointed that this took place. How did this happen? What is our country coming to. Does no one have deciency anymore. The whole half time was a joke not a show. Who decided that this show was okay. I am really saddened by all this. Its just so sad that people feel that they have to go to these extremes to think that they are entertaining and then we wonder why our children are doing all the things that they do. I just don’t know what to say except that I was embarrased by all this and horrified when I saw it take place. It makes me very sad.

  • http://macaronies.blogspot.com Mac Diva

    Yawn. Do yammering, ill-formed Right Wingers with no grasp of what is truly horrible (war, perhaps?) never get tired of posting banal, self-righteous screeds? (I don’t mean just Carolyn, but her entire tribe.)

    My take on this tempest in a teapot can be read here and at Blogcritics.

  • Eric Olsen

    I think the whole thing is hilarious and while I think Kid Rock is a dolt, he is totally pro-war and patriotic and I am certain he meant no disrespect by wearing the flag.

    We were watching and didn’t even notice what had happened with the boob – how bad could it have been?

  • Cyber Bum

    Erik, CN, we must let our guvmint be our “protector” telling us what we can’t see, read, eat, think..we must be protected from our own horrible thoughts, actions and deeds. I say let the Catholic church lay down the law of the land, how could they be led astray, they could show us all the “right” way…

  • kevin holtsberry

    I find it ironic that Mac Diva is one of the most arrogant, condecending, and judgemental posters/commenter I have come across. No matter what the subject she always manages to insult the person, claim the subject bores her, include the term Right Wing, and then refference her own far better work.

    What a tired old schtick. You can’t through a stick at a state university without hitting a 20 year old who thinks like this, talk about yawn.

    Maybe a taste for immature, untalented, and offensive people is a sign of adulthood . . . but it used to be the other way around.

  • http://www.foliage.com/~marks Mark Saleski

    Who does Kid Rock think that he is wearing the American Flag like that especially when our men and women are losing their lives everyday for our country.

    boy howdy! can we have a flag-burning discussion?! those are always so much fun!!!

  • http://macaronies.blogspot.com Mac Diva

    It does annoy me that some people believe in bromides. Football is wholesome. The American flag is sacrosanct. Whatever an authority figure says is ‘the truth.’ Even cursory examination of thoughts like that should be reason enough to make a person question them. I’m not saying they have to agree with my take. But, at least, think.

    Hiya, Kevin. Do you have any new ‘conservatives’ to recommend to the blog reading public? Matt Hale, perhaps? Oops. He’s . . . busy. David Duke, ditto. But, Kirk Lyons is not behind bars, yet. I’m sure you can find reason to promote him.

  • kevin holtsberry

    Oh I get it conservatives are racist, that is funny and original too! I bet you couldn’t give an intelligent history of conservative thought to save your life. For all your blather you are surprisingly ignorant of your enemies.

    Spare me the intellectual pose, you are a just another comments troll dressed up like a journalist. Please explain how insulting people and their motives involves thinking . . .

  • http://www.foliage.com/~marks Mark Saleski

    well, most racists certainly lean to the right…but the logic doesn’t work the other way around.

    but here’s a tangential thing: what’s the deal with conservative talk radio? i listened to jay severin (boston) once and he spent a lot of time talking about how the ‘wetbacks’ were causing our country so much trouble. it reminded me of savage and his ‘turd world nation’ stuff.

    What’s his face said:

    . . .you are a just another comments troll dressed up like a journalist.

    Actually, I had just taken a shower and was naked when I wrote that.

    (Sitting back to await outrage. Naked commenting. Naked blogging can’t be far behind. Then naked journalism. No wonder the country is goin’ to Hell in a handbasket and all that.)

    Yes, Pam Anderson is Canadian, and the sad fact is she should have made Kid Rock a better man.

  • http://macaronies.blogspot.com Mac Diva

    Jim, I have a feeling you may have already crossed the line into (gasp!) naked blogging. Feel free to go on and admit it.

  • http://www.resonation.ca JimC

    Of course, with some beaver tails and maple surup I’m sure I can make MacDiva (now that she’s nekkid) a better woman.

    This news report: Pastor Mansbridge just said:
    George Bush Just Did An About Face

    I’m going under the covers until the noodle house next starts tomorrow, because if the noodle house is in business that is good.

    I think it really was an accident. Initially, it looked like she was wearing a pasty, which would imply it was planned, but re-viewing (and re-viewing, and re-viewing – hey, we can have fun with this all day) the video, it’s clear that it’s actually an exotic sort of piercing.

    Here is the video, for those who want to re-review it too!

    Should this be on prime-time? Nope, probably not, the USA just isn’t ready for it, clearly – or we wouldn’t all be so abuzz here about it!

    There’s a huge disconnect here people. It’s not the boob, it’s the way they got it some air time. It’s becomming common to do anything you want now days, regardless of the laws, and then either claim it was an accident, or just pay the fine and move on. If you could just pay the fine for murdering your ignorant boss, wouldn’t you? It’s a boob this year. Next year I predict Kid Rock takes out his shlong and shakes it at us. Oooh it’s just a dick. Haven’t you seen a dick before? Half the population has one, 2/3 of the population are one.

    Great breast coverage, Blogcritics! Congrats on the traffic mileston yesterday :)

  • Eric Olsen

    Thanks TD! Right place at the right time with the right people.

    BTW, for those who believe Justin Timberlake, I don’t buy for a second that this was ‘accidental’.

  • http://www.resonation.ca Jim Carruthers

    I don’t know which is worse, the faked outrage in the media about this, or the apparent fact that the head of the FCC doesn’t watch teevee. He wasn’t aware that women have tits. And don’t you try to change his mind, because he’ll sue your ass off.

    Yep, proof that breasts are like toy trains — they’re made for kids, but dad winds up playing with them all the time.

    Here’s what all this whatnot about the Superbowl flapdoodle made me do in the bathroom.

    Oy, my nuts!

  • http://www.resonation.ca Jim Carruthers

    Y’know since the whole Super Bowl is just about marketing, and all about marketing, how come nobody has said:

    Got Milk?

    I meant to link to this, but it didn’t take.

    It’s just Larry David running around with his pants round his ankles, I’ve sometimes felt like that. Except not rich and all. Just pant’s and in pain. Actually most of the time, pant’s and in pain.

    This link shows the true, insidious nature of the alleged “nipple shield”.

  • Eric Olsen

    Nice one, comrade.

  • Bartikus

    If I show my testicles to your kids as they are coming out school…..what will happen to me?lol

    Will it be the end of the world?

    Will it be the death of us all if I were to go to jail?

    Apparently it would be if Janet met the same fate!

    LOL Free Speech my ass!

  • Ned Richards

    Andrew Jackson? Normal? I guess being a genocidal eccentric backwoods nutso IS more normal (especially when he was president) than MOST of the Jackson family…

  • TWEETIE

    what the difference in janet’s covered up nipple and everyday videoes that has ass and titties hanging out as well as usin the words shake the ass whoe or phrases like show them titties.a breast is something we all have and one will ost likely see rather itis our own or someone elses. she was once vote to best the woman with the most beautiful breast now she is being looked down on for what she did at the superbowl. Just think maybe she did it to take some attention off her brother. and to mtv and the grammies this is the UNITED STATES THE LAND OF THE FREE AND BRAVE.

  • Tishelle

    What’s the difference between this and all the other nudity on TV? Basically, it’s awareness or a warning. I’m not particularly uptight about it. I just think that something like ‘the halftime show will contain nudity – parental discretion advised’ would have made a world of difference. I would not make a habit of watching MTV with my kids in the room because I think they’re too young to witness some of what goes on. They’re 7 and 9 and I don’t delude myself into thinking that their innocence will last forever, but I’d like to let them stay children a little while longer. They really didn’t need to see that. My son plays tinymite football and we figured he would enjoy watching the Superbowl. I did not expect my kids to witness what would, in reality, amount to a sexual assault. What’s done is done though. Make them pay a fine or whatever and hope that it won’t hapen again.

  • Eric Olsen

    Very sensible Tichelle, I agree with your perspective, and a warning like that before the halftime show would have diffused the “violation” aspect of public outrage.

    Of course in theory MTV didn’t know what was coming.

  • marcel swaby

    i think that the live showing of the halftime show should have been delade becuse of the showing brest and thing like that

  • ankhsenaten

    I’m sorry…are there actually people who think that was an accident??? LMMFAO! And what’s with the Xena warrior princess nipple hubcap?

  • Eric Olsen

    Obviously the “action” wasn’t accidental, both Timberlake and Janet have stated they planned it. But I do believe her when she says the red material was supposed to stay in place.

    That anyone thought any aspect of it was a good idea is still pretty hard to believe.

  • kurt

    i love see them and most man do . like to see more if i can

  • jim

    janet is just another [edited] like her child molesting brother.money and fame has to many people kissing your black ass to prosicute you;

  • Melinda James
