Janet Jackson not banned

Some fans questioned why Justin Timberlake was allowed to perform again after the incident when Janet Jackson is still banned from Super Bowl. Pictured: Jackson and Timberlake perform during the halftime show at Super Bowl XXXVIII between the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers at Reliant Stadium on February 1, 2004 in Houston.

"We are not going to comment on any speculation regarding potential guests", the league said. The two performed the half-time show together and at the end of Timberlake's "Rock Your Body", he sings, "Bet I'll have you naked by the end of this song" and he sure did.

The "All For You" singer, however, is happy for Justin Timberlake and even promised to cheer for him. "He's the ultimate global superstar who we know will put on an entertaining and unifying show that will appeal to the massive worldwide audience". The disaster, which was later dubbed as the "Nipplegate", forced TV networks to cut a significant portion of the live show, and prompted five-second delays for future live performances. Subsequently, CBS was fined $550,000 by the Federal Communications Commission. She was banned from that year's Grammy Awards show, and Viacom blacklisted her singles and music videos. In fact, sources close to the singer say that she has yet to receive an invitation from Timberlake to join the performance.

This year's show will take place on February 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and sources tell Entertainment Tonight that Jackson wouldn't rule out appearing with him on stage.

Timberlake also assured viewers on Sunday Night Football that "Nipplegate" was a one-time occurrence.

"That won't happen this time", he said. While one insider said she is not planning on performing at the Super Bowl, another added that she has time conflicts due to her tour scheduling.
