Looking back at past Super Bowl halftime shows

Looking back at past Super Bowl halftime shows

Ne-Yo stopped by the Blast and answered questions about Justin Timberlake's upcoming Super Bowl halftime performance. On February 1, 2004, he and Janet Jackson teamed up onstage, resulting in a mishap that made headlines the next day: in an incident now dubbed "Nipplegate", the singer ripped Janet's costume and exposed one of her breasts.

Fourteen years after that disgraceful moment on TV, the Parents Television Council has penned a letter asking Timberlake to make his performance clean.

Timberlake has assured viewers "That won't happen this time".

The Super Bowl Halftime Show is usually the most-watched musical event of the year with more than 117 million viewers in the U.S. alone last year.

"Our children are confronted with enough harmful and explicit content in today's entertainment media".

"The Super Bowl, and particularly its halftime show, should be the hallmark of entertainment that's both appealing and a safe place for the entire family".

Of course, Justin has no intention of repeating such an incident this year.

The comments come after Timberlake said of the disastrous wardrobe malfunction which occurred 14 years ago: "It's just one of those things where you go like, 'Yeah what do you want me to say?' We're not going to do that again". He previously performed at Super Bowl XXXV with *NSYNC and Super Bowl XXXVIII with Janet Jackson.

While many will be tuning into Super Bowl 52 for the actual game between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, some will be watching for other reasons.
