NEW YORK (AP) - CBS apologized on Sunday for an unexpectedly R-rated end to its Super Bowl halftime show, when singer Justin Timberlake tore off part of Janet Jackson's top, exposing her breast.

"CBS deeply regrets the incident," spokeswoman LeslieAnne Wade said after the network received several calls about the show. The two singers were performing Rock Your Body, a flirtatious duet to end the halftime show. At the song's finish, Timberlake reached across Jackson's leather gladiator outfit and pulled off the covering to her right breast. The final lyric of the song goes, "Going to have you naked by the end of this song."

The network quickly cut away from the shot, and did not mention the incident on the air.

Timberlake said he did not intend to expose Jackson's breast.

"I am sorry that anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance of the Super Bowl," Timberlake said in a statement. "It was not intentional and is regrettable."

Well, that was certainly a shocking halftime show, wasn't it Boys and Girls?

Was this deliberate? Or was it truly an accident?

Could this be an attempt to take the heat off of one Jackson and put it on another?

As they say in football lore.....

Well given the picture at Yahoo.news I am inclined to call it delibrate, unless Ms. Jackson always wears pasties.

Woooo Janet Jackson's breast appeared on screen for a split second . . . I think it was probably deliberate, but I really don't see why it's such a big deal . . . I thought it was pretty funny actually. :)

It's just a cheap thrill to draw attention. There was probably tons of skin shown at the Lingerie Bowl, so perhaps this was their way of making up for it. ;)

This will be talked about more than the Adam Viniateri Field Goal to win the game at the end. And it'll be on every late night talk show tomorrow night. You just watch.

Publicity stunt, pure and simple.

The stunning stunt appeared to have been planned all along, with Jackson sporting a strategically placed star over her right nipple, which had been exposed to the watching millions as the duo sang Timberlake's hit Rock Your Body. 

Later it was confirmed that CBS, which broadcasts the Super Bowl and half-time show, had approved the tear-of strip, but were forced to apologise to their audience after a flood of complaints from family viewers about the smutty sing-along.

I'm not suree why anyone cares. That picture of ms. Jackson isn't exactly a flattering one in any respect.

Oh, it was an "MTV-produced" halftime show. That explains why it sucked so bad.  :barf:

Good grief, what were they thinking? Obviously it was planned.

Anyone who believes this is painfully naive. And Timberlake is a jerk for even trying this excuse.

Of course, I certainly don't expect people like those halftime performers to have any sense of propriety. They're of a different class than the rest of us. They're trash.

I actually thought the rapper who could not seem to stop grabbing his crotch was in worse taste, but what do I know?

We thought maybe he just had to pee, and that he should have taken care of that before halftime.

By the way, is there anyone here who knew who all those people were without relying on the captioning and the names in big flashing lights? I would have recognized Janet Jackson, but I had no clue who the rest were.

Nelly? Hmmm. I remember when Nelly was a girl's name.

And I found the "wardrobe malfunction" excuse to be laughable!

I think some of the outrage is due to the fact the the Super Bowl audience is not confined to the usual NFL weekend sports fans. It's become the "Big Sports Event" with families and even church and school youth groups having Super Bowl parties.  So, if the NFL wants to continue to be the country's "Big Sports Event"  the half time entertainment may have to take into account a broader viewing audience. And, that would mean coming in line with less edgy material.

Personally, I just found the whole thing tasteless. Janet's exhibition capped off a stream of crotch grabbing rappers, S&M clad dancers, and Kid Rock wearing a flag as a pancho. And, no. I'm not buying for one minute that lame "costume malfunction" story!  :rolleyes:

Our church group had a party for the occasion. Though most of the kids were in another room playing with the kid-herders, there were a few watching with us.

"Why is that man wearing a corset and garters?"
"I don't know, honey. Don't you want to go play with the other kids? Like, . . . right now?"


Though we did decide that one couple who is expecting a baby boy in June should consider "P. Diddy" as a possible name.

Somewhat offtopic, but last year's show w/ Gwen Stefani and Sting doing a duet on "Message in a Bottle" was absolutely fantastic.  Too bad this year's show didn't have anything remotely approaching that level of coolness.

Guaranteed MTV won't produce another halftime show for the NFL.

Loved Kid Rock's Old Glory poncho.

I'm sure it pissed off Pat Buchanan and those of his ilk.

No down side. :D

It was a silly half time show.  The ONLY good performance by the singers in this Super Bowl was the really well done tribute to the astronauts.  That was really beautiful and touching.  Everything else was silly.

So didn't you feel like it was a sort of bait-and-switch? Really classy tribute at the start, really crappy half-time show?
