As history goes, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake‘s narratives are intertwined – albeit controversially.
And while the pair largely avoid discussion about the other following the now infamous “wardrobe malfunction” at the 2004 Super Bowl, JT wasn’t shy to salute one of Ms. Jackson’s most celebrated dance-moves last night.

With his ‘Man Of The Woods Tour’ resumed, the trek’s latest show saw Timberlake break into Janet’s ‘If’ choreography.

While the connection and choreo reference was clear, it turns out the NSYNC’er was saluting the creator of the moves – Janet’s former choreographer Tina Landon who was in the audience and celebrating her birthday.
Color us extra, but we feel Justin must do right by Janet publicly and explicitly before we can look at instances like this with anything but a “boy bye” side-eye.
