THAT'S THE WAY THE LAW GOES
Janet Jackson admits she acted like a boob during Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show. In a statement released Monday night, the Nasty songstress admitted her breast-baring duet with Justin Timberlake was an escapade gone awry. "The decision to have a costume reveal at the end of my halftime show performance was made after final rehearsals. MTV was completely unaware of it," she said. "It was not my intention that it go as far as it did. I apologize to anyone offended including the audience, MTV, CBS and the NFL." Jackson's camp claims a red lace bra was supposed to remain when Timberlake tore off the black leather bustier. FCC chief Michael Powell, meanwhile, is investigating whether CBS violated any decency laws. (Fines could reach into the millions.) And CBS, which is launching its own probe into breast-gate, is threatening to ban Janet and Justin from Sunday's Grammy Awards if it shows the pair intentionally set the booby trap, the New York Post reports. If the network is looking for experts to weigh in on the matter, they need only turn to a TiVo subscriber. The company says Janet's flashdance was the most "TiVoed" moment in its history. The runner-up: Mary McCormick getting crushed to death by that big "C" on NBC's late, great Santa Barbara.
