Janet Jackson Super Bowl Return: Joe Jackson Hints That It’s Happening

Published: Monday 20th Nov 2017 by Sam

With the world waiting with bated breath to see if Janet Jackson takes to the stage with Justin Timberlake at next year’s Super Bowl, the diva’s father is heavily hinting that it may indeed occur.

Dive below for details…

According to the NY Daily News, Joseph Jackson was quite candid about the possibility of his daughter returning to the controversial platform while in attendance at the Soul Train Awards.

As etched in history, the superstar’s 2004 Halftime headlining gig with then-guest Timberlake became the subject of global debate after their now infamous “wardrobe malfunction.” The aftermath saw Jackson unfairly blackballed for a time by media entities, while the equally culpable Timberlake’s career on unscathed. Their paths have not crossed since.

Speaking to the publication, the Jackson patriarch suggests that’s about to change. He said:

“Janet is ready to comeback and I think it will happen. The way I bought her up she was made for comebacks and this is no different.”

More than just conjecture, Papa Jackson, 89, poured more tea, saying:

“Janet always wanted to know she was not banned after what happened before.

We know conversations have taken place secretly, but no-one is daring to say too much publicly until contracts are signed.

We must not forget this show is about ratings. No one publicly is going to discuss that, but the world and media know that the NFL are in a sticky place over fans reactions to their players taking the knee and protesting the national anthem.

The audience are expecting a show and I feel that they are expecting to see her too. It is what they want.”

We’re cautiously optimistic.
Ultimately nothing is official until it’s official. But, it certainly doesn’t seem far fetched.
Like Joe says, it all boils down to ratings and a Janet Jackson Super Bowl comeback would break the internet twice over. It’s the stuff biopics are made of (see: redemption). What’s more, forget any friendship, it has clear business benefits for both JT and Janet in the short and long term.
We’re team “do it, Janet” here at TGJ. Are you?!

    They will still hate JT even if she decides to appear and perform with him, so 🤷🏼‍♂️

    • ??? November 20, 2017

      lol miss justine deserves any and all hate that he gets for his b*tchassness lmao.

      • Suicide Blonde November 20, 2017

        No, he doesn’t, it takes two to dance Tango, Janet has been playing the victim ever since the supposed incident happened, we all know it was a publicity stunt, yeah, she was blacklisted by radio stations and award shows but he was/is crucified by people for supposedly throwing her under the bus, and Janet is wrong for letting that happen, she is aware that she was the creator of such scandal, and still plays the victim and let people hate on Justin for something that he shouldn’t even have apologized in the first place, if anything they’re both should confess and apologize for their stupid stunt, unfortunately for his haters, his career has never been affected by their backlash, that’s the good thing.

      • Keith November 20, 2017

        Yes, Justin deserves all negativity his way for his cowardly actions in the aftermath. He had every opportunity to speak again and again – especially because his career took off as hers was obviously being railroaded. A real man wouldve used his platform thoughtfully and not for only his gain. Typical white boy bs….i dobt want her to do it but i will be her loudest cheerleader IF it becomes official.

      • NOW CONTROL THIS. November 20, 2017

        Sorry but “Janet’s been playing the victim???” Which part?

        JANET spoke about the Superbowl once on Oprah in 2006 >> two years after the event and hasn’t since…, so which part has she been playing the victim?

        You are part of the problem.

        JANET is the victim – Victim of a system and an industry that supports White Supremacy. (Black + Female) they did what ever they could to take away everything from Janet, Justin sat back, said nothing and benefited from that same system, he is part of the problem also.

    • G7Pat November 20, 2017

      Of course his career wasn’t affected. Good ole white boi. And he was and will as
      Always be lame af for acting like a lil bych afterwards.

    • Jasmine November 20, 2017

      Suicide the racist f a g g o t is back at it again. For the last time ugly troll Justina does not want you. He is looking for a top with money and not some broke diseased used-up sissy bottom. Go back to your meth pipe and keep dreaming GUTTER TRASH.

      Justin is a prime example of white privilege, while Janet being blacklisted. Do your research and you’ll see the evidence and facts. It doesn’t take away from his musicianship but I have no respect for him.

  2. G7Pat November 20, 2017

    If she does she will eat that stage alive

    • Its me gowrl November 20, 2017

      And shut the WORLD down!

  3. ??? November 20, 2017

    lol um no. first of all that way too many big words to have come from joe jackson lmao, he doesn’t talk that coherently. second, janet is not a charity case, and she’s not here to play second fiddle to some boy band b*tch. and someone like joe jackson would want her on that stage ALONE. sounds like the daily news’ wishful thinking lmao.

    • Keith November 20, 2017

      I hope youre right @???

  4. Coolio November 20, 2017

    I think janet it big enough to do it by it herself and have a serious comeback she can do it shes all about coming together she can bag this award show.
    But if she has to do it with jt then so be it she better snatch all wigs

  5. SMH November 20, 2017

    Not buying it. Like this says, this is all about ratings, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this story was planted by the NFL to draw ratings. They know what they’re doing.

  6. boatango November 20, 2017

    Don’t do that wack mf any favours

  7. MessyJessy November 20, 2017

    I called this from the day he was announced. She will perform with him. Also why doesn’t anyone use the Superbowl to promote new music? Like a new smash single could be performed at the end and the sales would go through the roof and guarantee a number 1.

    • NT November 20, 2017

      Beyonce did Formation but didn’t release it.

    • Caleb November 21, 2017

      Madonna used her 2012 performance to perform “Gimme All Your Lovin’” though many weren’t really feeling the song.

  8. Ashton November 20, 2017

    Shut up Joe before you ruin it!! 🤫😂

  9. eric November 20, 2017

    I don’t want to see Janet as Justin’s guest, but if she has to give up a little integrity in exchange for a career boost, so be it. The stage that took so much from her is the stage that can hopefully give it back.

    • SMH November 20, 2017

      Janet is not about to give up her integrity just to be someone else’s ratings draw. And any real fan of hers would NEVER want her to do such a thing.

  10. Haterz Gon Hate November 20, 2017

    It is so clear why this is going to happen. Janet is using the very platform that ruined her career to turn it back around and get back on top. Jimmy Jam said she recorded loads of new music after Unbreakable came out, we are supposed to get new music on the tour, that hasn’t happened, so a new album in 2018 with superbowl at the top of the year PLUS the rumoured Netflix documentary to chart her return to touring, weight loss and the spotlight all spells PR 101. She’s smart and has been moving back into public consciousness since the last tour started and then she got pregnant.

  11. DanYiel Iman November 20, 2017

    I’m actually over her whispering soprano tones IN GENERAL!!🤦🏽‍♂️

    • ??? November 20, 2017

      Lol and we’re over your bug queens goat screetching & idea stealing in general lmao

  12. SMH November 20, 2017

    You people are idiots if you think Janet is gonna sacrifice her dignity to protect that boy’s white privilege. And y’all seriously need to stop trying to make her do it.

  13. #TeamTinashe Stan (Major Announcement To Be Released Soon!! :).) November 20, 2017

    She needs to do it ALONE.
    Never should have shared the stage in the first place. And plus, how much of “Rhythm Nation” do we need in the world right now? Perfect timing for a Janet SB show.

  14. Justafan November 21, 2017

    If he has an ounce of integrity, JT should not perform unless Janet joins

  15. Brian Outlaw November 22, 2017

    F*** that, why should Janet save JT. He wasn’t there for her when she needed him. I know Janet is beautiful and kind so she just might do it to save his ungrateful sellout ass. He’s the one that pulled her top to head yet Janet got all the blame over a small accident. He threw her under the bus. Janet I love you so much but Justin doesn’t deceive to be saved by you. He’s not even worth being rescued. Let Karma beat the f*** out of Justin. Janet I know I sound mean right now but f*** that. How Justin did u was beyond f***** up.

  16. Boytoy1814 November 23, 2017

    Janet has a new album coming out in march 2018. I think she’s gonna perform w/JT 2 promote/market her new album. Over 100 million people will watch Superbowl. Perfect setup for new album launch. We’ll see.
