Janet invited JT as a special guest performer during her Super Bowl Halftime performance in 2004. They performed his hit "Rock Your Body." During the moment in the song where JT sings, "I'm gonna have you naked by the end of this song"—he rips of her breastplate. He exposed her right breast, which was covered with a nipple shield for a few seconds.

The incident was deemed a "wardrobe malfunction," but created a controversy now referred to as Nipplegate. Although Janet addressed the incident numerous times, she was blackballed by the NFL and other media organizations. Janet's music videos and singles were pulled from music channels and radio formats. On the other hand, JT distanced himself from Janet and "apologized" for the incident.

Janet is regarded as a pop legend and the Empress of Pop. While she still found success in later years, her career hasn't been the same since the controversy. JT's career thrived following the incident. Many critics have called out these double standards. While JT had been forgiven as a white male entertainer, the incident continued to follow Janet as a black female entertainer. She's banned from the Super Bowl for life, while JT is the next performer.

The JanFam ain't having it. They are demanding #Justice4Janet. Some critics aren't going to watch a JT performance. Others are encouraging him to apologize and bring out Janet during his performance.

But JT is excited. He's even using the hashtag #AlMichaelsShakeYaBooty, in honor of Janet's brother Michael. Timberlakers can't wait!
