If Justin Timberlake Doesn’t Invite Janet Jackson to His Super Bowl Halftime Show

If Justin Timberlake Doesn’t Invite Janet Jackson to His Super Bowl Halftime Show

If you haven’t heard the news yet, and the headline of this article hasn’t given it away, then let me be the first to tell you that former NSync-er and maker of entirely-too-long albums Justin Timberlake will headline the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show.

Which brings me to the one and only thing that needs to be said: if Janet Jackson does not appear on stage, there’s gonna be a problem.

Since the announcement, plenty of people have taken to Twitter to remind the internet that, 14 years after their appearance together at the Super Bowl, Timberlake and Jackson had opposite career trajectories. Timberlake went on to be one of the biggest pop stars in the country, and attempt to be in some films, while Jackson was blackballed because she gaps! has breasts.

As of Monday Morning, TMZ reports that an NFL spokesperson confirmed that Jackson is, contrary to popular belief, not banned from the most watched televised concert of the year. Therefore, it’s official: there’s no reason for Timberlake’s 15 minutes on national television, approximately the same amount of time as two of his long-ass songs, to not include Janet Jackson.

Your move, Timberlake.
