I'm putting this under sports for lack of a better idea.
I was reading this FOX story about the half-time show:
The two singers were performing a flirtatious duet to end the halftime show, and at the song's finish, Timberlake reached across Jackson's leather gladiator outfit and pulled off the covering to her right breast.
The network quickly cut away from the shot, and did not mention the incident on the air.
Timberlake said he did not intend to expose Jackson's breast.
"We were extremely disappointed by elements of the MTV-produced halftime show," Joe Browne, NFL executive vice president, said. "They were totally inconsistent with assurances our office was given about the content of the show.
"It's unlikely that MTV will produce another Super Bowl halftime."
MTV issued a contrite statement, saying the incident was "unrehearsed, unplanned, completely unintentional."
Let's assume, for the moment, that I believe this was an accident.1 I don't know what made them think this was an appropriate ending even without the bared flesh. At the end of the song Timberlake came up from behind Jackson and started feeling her up. (I really know of no better way to describe it.) I was sitting there thinking, "I can't believe they're doing this. Don't they know this is supposed to be a family show?"
And then he rips off part of her top.
On another note, he was clearly trying to pull something off, so if he wasn't trying to expose her breast, what was he doing?
I've seen a lot of things done in bad taste, but this takes the cake.
1I don't. The only question for me is whose idea it was.
