Broadcast on this very day in 2004, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake closed – what was otherwise an epic Super Bowl showing – with a five second incident that literally changed the face of television forever.  Not only television, but the career of the show’s leading lady.

While Timberlake arose from the media ashes unscathed and enjoying even higher successes some ten years later, the misadventure led Jackson, a pop icon whose catalog and stage presence combined have arguably yet been matched, down a road to blacklist of almost unrecoverable heights.

By now, you know the story of “Nipple-gate,” as it was affectionately coined, in its totality.  So, instead of focusing on the enormity of its backlash – a backlash, mind you, that’s still seeing its repercussion directly or indirectly impacting decisions made today regarding live television – let’s focus on words from the horses’ mouths.

As we prepare for Katy Perry‘s sure-to-be-epic Super Bowl showing, let’s rewind to 2004 to hear Janet and Justin’s thoughts on “Nipple-gate” and the event that birthed the phrase “wardrobe malfunction”:

Sales of her new project ‘Reclassified’ may have been less than stellar, but it seem it’ll take more than a commercially unsuccessful EP to kill Iggy Azalea‘s chart vibe.

For, those who laughed at her supposed struggle to sell albums should think twice before doing so at her success on a singles front, especially now that her latest effort ‘Beg For It’ has risen 14 spots on the ‘Billboard Hot 100‘ in the last week!

Beyonce Rep Remarks On Fake Re-Release Tracklist Featuring Rihanna / Suggests Future Releases Won’t Use Surprise Tactic

beyonce-2015-a-thatgrapejuice

As fan fiction goes, it appears it’s a case of the bigger the star, the more elaborate the story.

Just ask Beyonce.

The mega-seller found herself at the centre of a fake-tracklist storm last week, after well-executed line-sheet – supposedly featuring new songs from the re-release of her self-titled album – begun doing the rounds.

Featuring collaborations with the likes of Rihanna and Justin Timberlake, the image gained ample traction and was covered by a multitude of outlets – including many of the major variety.

We, however, held out for official confirmation, which materlized just a few days later and featured none of the alleged new numbers. Instead, two fresh cuts – ‘7/11′ and ‘Ring Off’ – were confirmed along with remixes featuring the likes of Kanye West and Pharrell Williams.

With the dust from the confusion settling, a rep from Bey’s team spoke with Billboard about the episode, as well as plans for the singer’s future releases.
