As the clock counts down to Justin Timberlake‘s headlining slot at the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show, debate continues to rage about why he got the gig in the first place.

Indeed, given his integral role in the infamous “wardrobe malfunction” during Janet Jackson‘s 2004 performance, millions are still unable to rationalize how he has been asked back and she is reportedly “banned.”

Even Jackson’s industry peers are weighing in. Case in point, actress Bette Midler who did not hold back about the matter on Twitter.

After months of speculation, Janet Jackson has shut down the rumors. Per the Pop queen herself, she will not be performing at the Super Bowl with Justin Timberlake.

‘Scandal’ is back for its 7th and final season.

Over the years, the Kerry Washington led show has boasted some of the most dramatic twists and turns in TV history and its swan song promises even more.

Forming a central part of the revived TGIT (Thank God It’s Thursday) block of programming, the political drama looks set to go out with a bang. A consolation, no doubt, for fans sad to see the show go.

Watch a sneak peek preview of episode 11, titled ‘Army Of One’ below…

ABC hit ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ is back for a firework filled-fourth season.

The legal drama, which stars Emmy winner Viola Davis, follows a group of ambitious law students and their brilliant criminal defence professor.

It all makes for a riveting watch. And like millions, we’re all sorts of hooked hooked!

As we reported here, nearly as week after the 60th annual Grammy Awards aired the show is still very much a hot topic.  Initially, viewer complaints harped primarily on the lack of diversity among winners, specifically a poor celebration of nominees that were female and/or people of color.  However, once the Grammy president – Neil Portnow – weighed in on the backlash with some interestingly worded remarks the fallout shifted to him directly.

Taking to press, Portnow indicated women needed to ‘step up’ in order to see more inclusion – a statement most believe insinuated he thinks their contributions were less worthy of recognition than their male counterparts.  Sending shockwaves throughout the industry, female artists like P!nk, India Arie, Katy Perry, and Vanessa Carlton immediately sprung to action, with the latter even promoting a petition which aims to see him relieved of his leadership position in the Recording Academy.

As if that’s not enough, female executives – including some of Portnow’s own cohorts – are calling for similar action. Details inside:

Toni Braxton wins again at Lifetime!

Just two years after raking in major ratings with the network’s made-for-TV adaptation of her autobiography, ‘Unbreak My Heart:  The Toni Braxton Story,’ the Grammy winner flexed her acting muscle and lured in top viewership by bringing another important female figure’s story to life via film.

As his latest top 10 single, ‘Filthy,’ proclaims…”haters gon’ say it’s fake, but it’s so real.”

That’s right, jaws dropped at news Justin Timberlake‘s new album – ‘Man of the Woods’ – is set to deliver the lowest first week sales of his nearly two decade long solo career.  Preceded by the cuts ‘Filthy,’ ‘Supplies,’ ‘Say Something’ (featuring Chris Stapleton), and its title track, the album is his first to only produce one top 10 single among its first quartet of singles.

Add to this the tunes’ respective poor performances on streaming charts (while faring fairly well on the sales side of the coin), industry analysts have used that information – in conjunction with its reported sales after the first 24 hours of its availability – to predict how many units the project is set to shift by next week’s end.

If their predictions ring true, ‘Man of the Woods’ will go down as the singer’s worst first week sales performance ever.  See the info inside:

How she’s generating interest in the set?

I swore I washed it off in the waves . I wish I was sorry, damn, I wish I was sorry That I don’t know how to stay away.

Justin Timberlake‘s “back to my roots” album ‘Man Of The Woods’ seems set for a big first week bow – thanks to his media machine and the colossal Super Bowl platform.

However, response to the music housed on the LP has been far from endorsing.

Early signs suggested as much based on the lukewarm response to much of the pre-release singles serviced in the weeks preceding.

Yet, it’s the critics reviews that have perhaps been most scathing.

See what we mean after the jump…

Tomorrow night will see the Pop superstar Justin Timberlake return to the Super Bowl fourteen years after his legacy-altering showing with Janet Jackson at the event.

His return has unfortunately revived talk on how racism and sexism served his career and scorched Janet’s career following the event.

Here at TGJ, we’re keen to focus on the positive.

So, today’s Retro Rewind sees us celebrate JT’s run as an actor by revisiting his brilliant performance in the box office smash ‘The Social Network.’

In it, Timberlake portrays Sean Parker who founded Napster and support Jesse Eistenberg who played Mark Zuckerbeg, the founder of Facebook.
