Looks like JT’s Halftime Show is facing some controversy #JusticeForJanet

It’s been less than 48 hours since it was confirmed that Justin Timberlake was confirmed as this year’s Superbowl Halftime Performer …. AND already… a controversy. 

 

The hashtag #JusticeForJanet has gone viral.  Basically, many are suggesting Justin Timberlake, being asked to return to the Superbowl Halftime show, 14 years after the infamous “wardrobe malfunction,” is another example of white male privileged in our society.  Proponents of the hashtag are suggesting that there is a double-standard.  JT got off way easier from that scandal than Janet did.  Which……… may very well be true, but even the feminist in me would have to agree that Justin Timberlake is also a far more successful artist these days.  

The Superbowl Halftime Show is the biggest stage in the world.  Reserved for the biggest artists.  Justin Timberlake fits this category. Janet sadly doesn’t to me.  

Will Janet be back too?  Maybe, but I doubt it.
