I mean the reason Janet Jackson isn’t invited is because it’s 2017 and she’s Janet Jackson.  All the respect in the world for what she’s done but do people think Janet Jackson is on “Super Bowl halftime show performer” level right now?  The shortest of the short lists of current superstars?   You honestly think if Janet Jackson was a mega star the NFL wouldn’t lift her ban to let her perform too?*  Nipplegate isn’t what’s keeping Janet off the stage.

And you can say the media criticism back then was unfair.  That was definitely true.  I’m sure everyone knows that we here at Barstool fully support wardrobe malfunctions.  If we were blogging back then it would have been the most pro-Janet Jackson media outlet on the planet, but unfortunately it was before our time.   But who are these people saying it ruined her life? That JT owes her a 12 minute apology?  What?  She dropped albums in 04, 06 and 08 that all did well, she had a #1 NYT bestseller book in ’11, married a billionaire, had a child, has a 56 city tour going.  Janet Jackson did just fine.

Also these joints still go.

*Funniest part – Janet Jackson is not banned from the Super Bowl.  It’s just a common perception that the Twitter crew ran with.
