Anyway, seems that most of the attention has been on Janet's tit. For those who didn't see it, an mpg is here, and the Matt Drudge has a recap. Drudge's report is kind of interesting since it does mention that CBS approved the thing, while all the public statements have said they were disappointed and that MTV will not produce another halftime show.
Top CBS executives approved a musical skit where Janet Jackson would expose her breast during the MTV-produced Super Bowl half-time concert, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.I do think the link to the google cache of MTV is interesting too. Apparently, the article is no longer on MTV's site but includes this choice quote from Gil Duldulao, Jackson's chroegrapher:
"The decision to go forward went to the very top of the network," a well-placed source explained from New York.
"I don't think the Super Bowl has ever seen a performance like this," Duldulao added. "The dancing is great. She's more stylized, she's more feminine, she's more a woman as she dances this time around. There are some shocking moments in there too. It's a lot of pressure, there's so many creative people and creative artists, you want to make sure everything is different, and I think she's going to do that. She's doing her job well."(Emphasis added.)
Also interesting to note that she has a new album coming out in March or so that is being pitched as "easily the most sexy thing she's done."
The older secretary at the office was quite upset about the halftime, and wouldn't even say why she was offended, or why it was "just horrible." As another person said "she's a prude." The two people I talked with (both female) didn't see what the fuss was about. "It's only a boob." I would concur.
It's also funny that this attracted nearly twice as many Tivo viewers as any other point in the game.
