Throwback: Justin Timberlake's Laughable Apology for Super Bowl Wardrobe Malfunction
It's not even a contest: Far and away the most scandalous thing to ever happen at the Super Bowl Halftime Show was Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" in 2004. Aided, of course, by one suddenly solo star Justin Timberlake.
For this week's Throwback Thursday, we're looking back at Justin Timberlake's laughable apology at the Grammy Awards, where -- after deservedly winning best male pop vocal performance for his Britney Spears kiss-off/No. 1 song in your breakup playlist "Cry Me A River" -- Timberlake took a moment to recall the incident. Take it away, JT.
"I know it's been a rough week on everybody," he said with a wry smile to audience cheers. "What occurred was unintentional, completely regrettable, and I apologize if you guys were offended."
Ignoring the fact that "unintentional" seems, um, unlikely, let's rewatch this just in time for the Super Bowl. Also, think about how this speech would have played in the era of 24/7 Twitter culture (let's just say Janet Jackson would have come off a lot better).
