Janet Jackson Outtrends Super Bowl On Twitter Ahead Of Halftime Show

Published: Sunday 4th Feb 2018 by Sam

Janet Jackson has been a fixture in the headlines in recent weeks. For, Justin Timberlake‘s selection as headliner for this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show has forced many to take a long hard look at the blatant disparity in treatment the pair received following the 2004 “wardrobe malfunction.”

Indeed, all signs pointed to Jackson being “banned” from the platform, while JT has been invited back with open arms.

The injustice has caused for an interesting development on game day.

A celebratory hashtag, #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay, has been erected and is exploding! So much so that it’s outpacing the #SuperBowl equivalent.

Full story below…

As at writing, the trend is #1 in the US and is besting the Bowl:

Update: It’s now hit over 100,000 tweets. Including many from celebrities:

The salute is spilling over to Instagram too…

    Wouldn’t it be crazy if after what is shaping up to be a very visible year for brand Janet – she was invited to do it next year as Headliner and got more rating than J.T. and brought out Missy, Qtip, Busta, and other guests from over the years as her special guest. #IsThatTheEnd?NO! #Janetappreciationday ?

    She’s finally getting the props that she deserves!!!! Too bad these same ppl on social media didn’t support her by buying “Damita Jo,” “20 Y.O.” and “Discipline” when everyone was on her case. 2 out of those 3 albums were really good and it’s a shame we didn’t get proper rollouts and tours for those records.

    But I guess this is the consolation. I know she’s looking at this outpouring of support on social media and feels loved.

      Right…I have my copies of all three and really love them but discipline was the weakest.

      • Caleb February 5, 2018

        I thought DS was referring to 20 Y.O. as the one that was the weakest?

    I just every one to know that we are celebrating Janet NOT having anything to do with this s***** g******** of a game or the poorly aged Justin, who all of a sudden decided that at the current time in America it was the perfect opportunity to come out as a white man. It’s not an actual holiday, but in true black America fashion, we made it one.
