Metal Pasties and Plausible Deniability

Okay...I'll lighten it up a little after two reasonably heavy political posts.

I watched the SuperBowl with friends yesterday, and it was an exception football game, even though I'm not a huge fan of the sport.

But during halftime, we flipped around, hoping to find something more interesting than Janet Jackson. We watched about 20 minutes of Independence Day, you know, the part where they go to Area 51.

So we missed seeing Justin Timberlake rip the flap off JJ's outfit to expose her bottlecapped booby.

Video is here (via Luke McKibben).

Now, CBS issued an apology, and so did Justin Timberlake:

"I am sorry if anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance at the Super Bowl," he said. "It was not intentional and is regrettable." anybody buying this bullshit? Have a look at the clip, preferrably in slow-mo. Any idiot can see that it's intentional.

And from MTV:

'The tearing of Janet Jackson's costume was unrehearsed, unplanned, completely unintentional and was inconsistent with assurances we had about the content of the performance," the statement said. "MTV regrets this incident occurred and we apologize to anyone who was offended by it."

Now FCC violations are about as subjective as Pass Interference calls, but this one's a no-brainer. It was planned, and intentional, and rehearsed. And if the FCC's going to be consistent at all, Janet, Justin, and MTV all ought to receive a hefty fine.

Which I would then suggest donating to a worthy cause (such as breast cancer research).
