Janet Jackson Issues Statement Confirming She Will NOT Be Performing At Super Bowl With Justin Timberlake

Published: Sunday 4th Feb 2018 by Sam

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.

Full story below…

In a statement issued today, Jackson (51) confirmed that – despite much press anticipation – she will not be taking part in JT’s Halftime Show tomorrow night in Minneapolis.


The pair infamously created waves like no other when their wardrobe malfunction during the 2004 Halftime Show dominated headlines worldwide.

As widely reported, the treatment Jackson and Timberlake received thereafter defined disproportionate and many had hoped the latter would seize the moment to right that wrong by inviting Jackson to join him during his spot. Needless to say, that won’t be happening.

Given that was what many had been hoping for, one has to wonder whether this will impact Justin’s viewership.

Your thoughts?

    I don’t blame Janet. She doesn’t need Justin at all

    • Bam February 4, 2018

      At all. She’s making a great comeback wave for herself and I couldn’t be happier.

    Like the Queen she is… she doesn’t need him or the Super Bowl. That being said you know if this were Madonna her ass would have been ready and willing. I love my Queen Janet!

      Nah Made would have demanded her own halftime show. If the NFL wants Janet back then they have to offer her a full halftime show. Why should a legendary artist be a lessor artist’s special guest when they should have their own show first before ever considering that?

      • RoyalKev February 4, 2018

        @ Jasmine well said!

        @Highbrowthis, Madonna would’ve jumped at this opportunity! … Real quick!

    IMO her whispering notes won’t be missed even though I’m not watching anyway #Kaepernick …

    • Me Again… February 4, 2018

      Shut your lame biiitcch as_s up! You say the same tired thing all the time. If you hate her so much, why comment on her post dummy??? Obsessed h0£!!

    • Jasmine February 4, 2018

      Danyiel is OBSESSED with Janet.

    Her fans need to let it go and move on..they claim they can care less YET I saw them on Twitter saying Janet should get her own slot for the halftime show..just MOVE THE FACT ON!!! & enjoy the little relevance she has left..just like the little life she has left in that melting nose.

    • Now CONTROL This. February 4, 2018

      And whilst she has “some” relevancy, you have none lol… *keep gagging*

    • RoyalKev February 4, 2018

      Janet should get her own slot! Period! There’s nothing wrong with being honesty about that! Btw, I’m enjoying the “little relevancy” she has – #1 album this decade, slayful tour and everyone reporting this story being disappointed about a halftime show she never signed up for!

  5. Fancy BISH February 4, 2018

    *Plays New Agenda* Yaaaas Miss Jackson! ??

  7. Yes. February 4, 2018

    Good, we don’t wannna see her tits again. I’ll be one of the 120 million watching the show!

  8. Haters Gon’ Hate February 4, 2018

    Well timed statement. Just when things aren’t looking peachy for him, she makes sure he doesn’t benefit from viewers tuning in with the hope she will perform. ????

  9. RoyalKev February 4, 2018

    Thank you Janet for setting it all straight! No need for me to see this one!

  10. Suicide Blonde February 4, 2018

    Thank God!

    • Jasmine February 4, 2018

      Shut up racist trash.

      • Mark111 February 4, 2018

        Hahahahaha! Y’all won’t let him live and I’m loving it. ? ?

    • KB February 4, 2018

      Shut B****! His performance was awful !

  11. Meme February 4, 2018

    I can’t believe this is not happening. I pray to god they are just doing this to hype up the surprise. Michelle did the same thing before Beyoncé’s performance.

    • Tori February 4, 2018

      Babe…it’s not going to happen. Please use your prayers for something more tangible.

  12. Aj February 4, 2018

    Well if this is true AND JT is planning a prince hologram (the purple one would never have performed with a lesser / knock off version of himself) and his album is bombing with critics alike then JT is finally getting what he deserves for not standing up for Janet and its correcting years of white male privilege

  13. G7Pat February 4, 2018

    She let her name trend all up until today then snatched those viewers away. Hoping she releases something during halftime. Maybe the documentary

    • @Nate February 4, 2018

      Hahahahahah! Savvy Janet! She should use this to release something!

  14. Vito February 4, 2018

    JT sales predictions 300-350 k pre Superbowl

  15. Moti February 4, 2018

    She really didn’t have to say anything. ? It’s the best way to show you’ve moved on

    • Bam February 4, 2018

      No she did. People were expecting her and she knows many were only gonna tune in for her so it’s great that she put out a statement.

  16. eric February 4, 2018

    Thanks. I’ll find something else to watch. What’s at Redbox?

  17. eric February 4, 2018

    If he’s smart, he will have arranged for her to at least make an appearance and apologize to her in front of the whole world. He turned his back on her when his support could’ve made a positive difference. He was only focused on protecting his own career.
