Report: Justin Timberlake Finalizing ‘Super Bowl’ Deal

Published: Wednesday 27th Sep 2017 by Sam

Justin Timberlake appears to be one step closer to the Super Bowl. Again.

Details below..

According to Us Weekly, the performer is reportedly in “final negotiations” with the NFL to headline the 2018 Halftime Show on February 4th.

And while initial word was that he’d be topping the bill alongside JAY-Z, it appears Timberlake has been tapped to rock the stage solo in promotion of his upcoming new album.

Initial word of his involvement provoked outrage from many wondering why he’s allowed to appear while Janet Jackson – with whom he infamously performed with in 2004 – is “banned.” And, talented as JT may be, we can’t say we disagree.

Janet’s exposure was not caused by a gust of wind. It was Justin’s hand. Simple as that. There shouldn’t be one rule for one and something different for the other. That’s problematic and something folk are unlikely to let go of should his performance be confirmed.

Your thoughts?

    Smh.

    • ? + ✈ = ? September 27, 2017

      Hopefully he brings janet out

  2. Achooo! September 27, 2017

    Super Bowl will definitely have a decrease in viewership. They should have called Missy Elliott or anybody but Justin!

    • Angello September 27, 2017

      Missy already performed her hits, next

    • tyana jones September 27, 2017

      usher or chris brown and ne-yo.

  3. DanYiel Iman September 27, 2017

    Oh racist America is ready for Justin Timberlake especially since he exposed Janet Jackson breast implant…??‍♂️

    • Angello September 27, 2017

      She planned the stunt, nah

    • Cough Cough September 27, 2017

      He’s basic AF. Nobody cares Justina.

  4. Lol September 27, 2017

    I really don’t care if you think it’s problematic. If he moved on and Janet moved on then why do you care?? You’re gonna be writing about it anyway so you might as well deal with it. Plus this isn’t confirmation. This is coming from a tabloid. Shut up.

  5. China September 27, 2017

    JUSTIN AND JANET JACKSON WERE BOTH TO BLAME FOR THAT INCIDENT. BUT JANET GOT BLACKBALLED AND WHITE BOY JUSTIN …..FELT NO PAIN. THIS SHOWS AGAIN AND AGAIN ………………….HOW WHITE AMERICA IS. THE SLAVE MASTER IS OK TO RULE BUT THE BLACK GIRL IS TO BLAME. FU JUSTIN TIMBERFAKE.

  7. Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

    These lyrics are SO TRUE right now…

    Tired of injustice
    Tired of the schemes
    Your lies are disgusting
    What does it mean
    Kicking me down
    I gotta get up
    As jacked as it sounds
    The whole system sucks

    Peek in the shadow
    Come into the light
    You tell me I’m wrong
    Then you better prove you’re right
    You’re sellin’ out souls but
    I care about mine
    I’ve got to get stronger
    And I won’t give up the fight!

    With such confusion don’t it make you wanna scream
    You’re bash abusing victimize within the scheme
    You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize
    Somebody please have mercy ’cause I just can’t take it

    I’m tired of you telling, the story your way
    You’re causing confusion, you think it’s okay, damn it!
    You keep changing the rules, while I’m playing the game
    I can’t take it much longer, I think I might go insane!

    • dee September 27, 2017

      I hope that you did a copy and paste because child…. too much time on your hands!

      • Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

        BISH, what TF? Of course I did! And heffa, don’t worry about me and MY TIME…I’m doing GREAT…besides, it takes mere minutes to post a comment…and would take less if TGJ would get their ISH TOGETHER lol…bye HOEE

  8. Anne September 27, 2017

    The NFL has not to my knowledge set a permanent rule that Janet can never be invited again though in one of the years following the incident a certain panel member stated that she had been ruled out for consideration THAT year. Like any other business, the NFL is about money and PR. The media at large blamed Janet and claimed that the stunt was put together by her crew at practice and Justin was told about it at the last minute. Regardless, if the NFL believed that Janet would attract more fans/viewers then protesters they would invite her back in a heartbeat. But she has no hits and no longer has the fan base that she once had. How many headiners get reinvited? I can only think of two, Beyonce and Bruno Mars. I don’t see the big deal with Justin getting his FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO headline and hopefully get it right this time.

    • Anne September 27, 2017

      Correction: No recent hit songs.

      • Anne September 27, 2017

        One more thing, it would not surprise me if Justin features Janet as a surprise guest performer. He just might use the opportunity to acknowledge the fact that if he can be forgiven, then so should she. It would be a touching moment.

      • ??? September 27, 2017

        lmao sit your delusional ass down somewhere. timberb*tch doesnt have any recent hits except that trolls song. janet has 30 years worth of hits and would put on a show a million times better than this b*tch ass. stop trying to defend this punk lol.

    • Jasmine September 27, 2017

      She has plenty of hit songs multiple Greatest Hit collection CDs. Madonna has no recent hit songs yet she got to perform. Performing at the superbowl as a solo act is all about performing your hits. Bruno Mars does not have extensive hits but he got to perform. Thus, it is about the number of hits in your catalogue.

      • Anne September 27, 2017

        Madonna got to perform her old hits ONCE, she has not been reinvited based on the same old hits. That would not make much sense in my opinion.

      • Jasmine September 27, 2017

        @Anne I think you should watch Janet’s NFL performance in it’s entirety (including the other artists that performed). You are acting like Janet performed a solo spot when she never did that. She was part of a group of performers that were booked that night.

    • SMH September 27, 2017

      Wrong. You need to do your research. The NFL has stated that Janet Jackson is the only artist they have banned from the halftime show. Yes, they have officially stated this. So keep your bs defense of this boy not knowing until the last minute (lmao if thats not a crock of bullsh*t I don’t know what is) and the white privilege that is protecting his career. This is why the NFL is in sh*ts creek right now-their constant & blatant racist and misogynist disrespect of Black Americans. Janet Jackson is currently on a world tour that’s been selling out arenas with NO mainstream promo, recently topped the charts with her 7th number one album again with NO promo, and her greatest hits set from 8 years ago re-entered the top 5 on itunes-again, with NO promo. So your argument about her not having an audience is also bullsh*t. And if you think she wouldn’t draw in even bigger ratings than him you are sadly delusional.

      Bottom line, this boy is no innocent bystander like you and the rest of white america is still desperately trying to portray him as. It was HIS hand that pulled her top off. He had FULL knowledge of what was to take place in that performance. And pulled out his white privilege card when the sh*t hit the fan. And no amount of spin will change those facts. He should be banned for life as well, period, end of story.

    • pat September 27, 2017

      Please. This is the social media age. Controversy pulls in more ratings than a hit. Having Janet perform would set social media ablaze and increase halftime viewership.

  9. The Wig Snatcher September 27, 2017

    If y’all were really against Justina Timberlake, you would not buy his music, blog about him, etc. These “woke” Black queeer millennials are full of shiit. They wanna be “woke” and shiit, but fuss about Justin Timberlake being problematic on Twitter but still buy his music. These same crybabies fuss about Usher, R. Kelly, etc. and make sure no one else supports them. The hypocrisy is too fuuckin’ real.

    • ??? September 27, 2017

      lol chile shut up, its not black folks that are buying that tired queen’s music lol.

    • DS September 27, 2017

      For everyone reading these comments, I believe “Wig Snatcher” and “Jasmine” are the same person.

      • Jasmine September 27, 2017

        @DS No we are not the same person dear.

  10. Jasmine September 27, 2017

    What will Justina perform? She does not have a lot of hits under her skirt. Would have been better if they booked another male artist to perform. One with more hits.

    • Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

      LMAO yaaaaaaaas

    • gina September 27, 2017

      agreed. I can’t think of one song by him except that stupid trolls song.

    • Angello September 27, 2017

      Jasmine you ain’t fooling no one, you’re a man

      • DS September 27, 2017

        Either “Jasmine” is a self-hating gay man or a disgruntled woman with severely low self-esteem because she’s really b*tchy at everyone and constantly makes homophobic comments. I really do believe she is female despite her mannish ways.

      • Jasmine September 27, 2017

        @Angello Keep dreaming girl. If I was a man I would have more d|ck thirsty men (like you) than I could handle so obviously I am not a man. Nice try though dear.

      • Jasmine September 27, 2017

        @DS Yes, I am a woman. I’ll clarify since some men on here think they are women…I was born a woman and enjoy being a natural woman. I do not have low self-esteem and I am only b|tchy towards people that deserve it and sometimes what you might be perceiving as b|tchy is nothing more than SARCASM.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 27, 2017

      Jasmine is the most superficial individual on this blog. And she still feels entitled to call other people out about respect sometimes… hilarious.

      • Jasmine September 27, 2017

        @JOHNVIDAL Girl I have not said anything negative to you but yet you keep writing subliminal disses to me. Why don’t you go kiss that racist b|tch Suicide’s diseased @zz like you usually do and don’t come for me ok?

    • Facts September 27, 2017

      Preach Jaz! BTW girl, you’re one of my favorites on the blog. As for those haters below talking s***, fk them girl! They’re just mad because you gather their fav’s with facts.

      • Jasmine September 27, 2017

        @Facts Thanks facts I love all of your comments.

      • JOHNVIDAL September 28, 2017

        What facts? LOL

  11. Miss J September 27, 2017

    Justin Timberfake is not relevant in music in 2017. He has no classic song in his catalog. The only thing that will increase viewership is who his side act will be. His culture vulture team will more than likely go for a black artiste.

    • gina September 27, 2017

      Exactly.

    • Angello September 27, 2017

      nice try internet troll. he had the best selling song of 2016 in the US. the only vulture I’m seeing is your lifeless ass.

  12. NT September 27, 2017

    when was it confirmed that janet is banned has always been my question

  13. Suicide Blonde September 27, 2017

    I’m living ? But seriously give him a break, I’m pretty sure he’s planning something, maybe he brings Janet or have an statement to make, he knows that he performing at the super bowl is a big event, so let’s wait and see, but even if he invites Janet, I doubt that she accept to perform again there, so let’s wait, he’s one of the best performers alive, his halftime show could end up being the greatest yet, I think most people fear that, they wish him bad, besides, it takes two to dance Tango, it was a publicity stunt, it backfired badly on Janet’s career, they of course try to passed it as an incident but it wasn’t, everybody knows this, if anything Janet should apologize to Justin for letting people believe that it was his fault, always playing the victim, Madonna would never, she’s a b**** and proud of it.

    • ??? September 27, 2017

      lol chile shut up, nobody takes your racist ass seriously lol

    • gina September 27, 2017

      lmao exactly, i stopped reading his mess after he called timberfake one of ‘the best performers alive’. But what else do you expect from someone who’s fave is still pressed over Lady Gaga lol.

    • Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

      Suicide, please link me to ONE GREAT performance from JT…BY HIMSELF…without Lance, Joey, Chris and JC! Like my girl Whitney said, show me RECEIPTS lol

      • Suicide Blonde September 27, 2017

        Lol, don’t be delusional Fancy, I like you but I will drag your ass for that mothafucker, just watch his tour performances ??

      • Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

        Does he have tour performances on Youtube? Let ME link YOU to Bobby Brown’s AMA performance lol…just google AMA 90 Bobby Brown…now THIS is a performance! THAT EXCELLENCE THO… you see? RECEIPTS lol

    • Suicide Blonde September 27, 2017

      Y’all call me racist because I tell it like, you fools try to silence me with that racist b*******, don’t waste your time, I will continue to expose your favorites, from white wannabe Beyoncé to p*** Michael Jackson, lol, this is exactly why y’all hate me, I love y’all ? But seriously you fools think Beyoncé is the greatest performer ever but don’t think Justin Timberlake who is an amazing dancer and MUSICIAN is not one of the best performers alive, hypocrites.

      • Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

        I’ve never called you racist, ever…I said, I wanna see the RECEIPTS *Whitney voice* lol

    • pat September 27, 2017

      Madonna’s white privelege pass wouldnt’ have required an apology..lol

    • Subliminal September 27, 2017

      Justin Timberlake is one of the best performers? Hahaha. Janet should have apologized to HIM because everyone blamed him??!!! What the *** are you smoking? Janet was blackballed and blacklisted over the SB and never even said anything about Timberlake except once in an Oprah interview. He went on with his career scott free because he is WHITE while the black woman got banned and discredited. Then you have the nerve to say she should apologize to him? Girl, shut the **** up and get out of here with that deluded white superiority speech. One thing, Justin Timberlake is not a great performer and nowhere near in the league of the 3 artists he has ripped off most of his career: Michael, Prince and Janet. You can try to spin any way you want but their catalogues and legacies **** all over his. He will never ben in that league of a performer. Good bye and NEXT!

      • Facts September 27, 2017

        Preach!

    • Facts September 27, 2017

      Man stfu with your ugly mongoliod ass. No one takes anything you say out of your cesspool mouth seriously.

  14. gina September 27, 2017

    The NFL is a bigger mess than the trump administration nowadays. They may as well start preparing their spin for the lowest halftime show ratings in years if this is true.

    • Suicide Blonde September 27, 2017

      Lol, a JT halftime show will probably bring the biggest ratings ever, don’t kid yourself.

  15. Mase September 27, 2017

    I’m not here for him…

  16. Angello September 27, 2017

    There are a bunch of re-tards in the comments. I live. Probably 30 year old trans.

    • Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

      Well, you didn’t have to stop by…you coulda kept on driving! But you’re here, so fix a plate and find a seat BISH lol

  17. Nico September 27, 2017

    Boring ass performer i agree ….

  18. JOHNVIDAL September 27, 2017

    A mess. But I suppose they are not able to find any real performer left from the youngest generation since Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga already did it. They obviously cannot trust a Rihanna or a Milye Cyrus for this. Mainstream music is lacking so much.
    I still want, like suicide said last year, a change of direction and bring an older artist back and make it more about the music somehow, more relaxed for once. There are many older artists with epic careers who I´m sure many people would love to watch and remember. Look at how well Madonna did in the eyes of the public.

    • Angello September 27, 2017

      shut up old f*g

      • JOHNVIDAL September 28, 2017

        Lol Self-reflecting? Learn to read and chill. Educate yourself.

  19. Yes. September 27, 2017

    Who plays any Janet’s music now anyways? Her music is dated badly.barely anyone would know her music

    • Subliminal September 27, 2017

      Janet’s busy playing her music to sold out crowds of her fans and will be playing it to packed arena in Seattle tonight. Obviously, plenty know Janet’s music and still want to hear it. Bloop!

    • Jasmine September 27, 2017

      Your fav’s music is “dated badly”. You are obviously a moron. ALL of the best urban acts (current and old) have sampled Janet’s songs, worked with Janet, or were influenced by Janet / Michael’s dance moves. I have receipts:

      http://www.whosampled.com/Janet-Jackson/

      Where are your receipts?

  20. Cory September 27, 2017

    Wow. The only way this will be okay is if Janet Jackson comes out with him. Otherwise this is a BIG NO.

    • Fancy BISH September 27, 2017

      Yaaaaaaaas, clock him Caleb!

  21. TheRealDeal September 28, 2017

    Americans are such hypocrites.
    It’s a damn tit, which was covered up, get the F over it.

    Pink deserved her moment there.
    JT could have got it next year.
