Elsewhere in the Jackson family - more on the whole Justin Janet Super Bowl Scandal (to coin a phrase). Latest word from Janet's people is that while the duo did include a last minute 'garment tear' into their routine, Justin was only meant to remove one layer of Janet's skimpy top, revealing a red lace brassiere. The complete removal of the garment was a genuine mistake.
Presumably they will be sticking to that story when CBS undertake a thorough investigation into the whole routine later this week. You might think such an enquiry is going a bit far - and you'd be right - but to be fair to CBS the whole thing got a little commercial yesterday when the half time show's sponsor, AOL, announced it would not be putting its webcast of the event online as planned and hinted it may look for anything up to $10 million compensation for being associated with such a shocking TV moment. On that news Viacom - parent company of both CBS and the half-time show's producer MTV - saw its share price slip, making senior executives even more angry.
That anger may well be taken out of Timberlake and Jackson themselves. If the aforementioned enquiry finds the two artists responsible for the routine word is CBS bosses will demand the duo are removed from Sunday's Grammy Awards, which the US network screens. Timberlake is scheduled to perform with the Black Eyed Peas at the Grammy show, while Jackson is slated to be a presenter.
Either way, Timberlake probably isn't helping matters with some of his comments to media. Despite initially claiming the whole thing was an accident and apologising for it - he has subsequently been heard to say: "It was fun. It was quick, slick, to the point. No, I enjoyed it. I love giving y'all something to talk about!"
