I can understand that he didn't want the massive controversy as he was starting his solo career off, but profiting from black culture without standing by black people was always going to come back and haunt him eventually.
"Rock Your Body" was a reject, everyone could have "bought" it. This way Rihanna also owns Britney one for "Umbrella" and Britney owns one to Kylie for "Toxic"... An influence doesn't mean an obligation imo.

Janet isn't that innocent either, let's not ignore the fact that she had decorated her nipple for the occasion.

Additionally, one can not simply blame JT entirely of profiting from black culture without standing by black people; he's most frequent collaborators (Timbaland, Pharell) are black people. Even as a featured artist or as a writer/producer he has collaborated so many times with black people (Beyonce, Rihanna, T.I.).

For the rest, i do not know what happened exactly back then (turning his back to Janet etc) so, i won't say a thing.

This should be great, he was brilliant at Eurovision last year and he is an entertainer. There is a great discography to pick from too.

THIS
Yes he doesn't deserve to do SB if Janet is blacklisted
but he also doesn't owe her any kind of apology
If anything, it was 90% Janet's fault

Ok, controversial question. How many of you think that nipple-gate was staged?

In that split second what could she do other than cover it? It was 100% Justin’s fault.

I believe it was Jermaine Dupri’s ghetto idea. Janet and Justin were just the pawns. However, they both played their part equally.

Just because she decorated her nipple doesn’t mean she was preparing for millions of people to see it :roll:

how did he know how to unbuttone just the nipple part??? like he definitely wasn't in Janet's dressing/changeing room when she was wearing that dress

Oh please, Justin Timberlake is like the epitome of a privileged white male.
He makes a career out of exposing his relationship with Britney Spears, talks about their intimate life on national TV, gets praised for it. He mocks her when she's in rehab and gets away with it, while Spears gets all the criticism.
He exposed a black woman's nipple on stage and the world blamed HER for it. He went on to get his awards and shamelessly moved on with his life.
During the Presidential election, he's taken a selfie from his Memphis voting booth, which was an illegal act that could lead to a $50 fine and up to 30 days in jail in the state of Tennessee and needless to say, he faced no charges. Instead, THEY passed a bill to allow selfie-taking in voting poll stations.
Want more? At the CMA, he performed with a country artist, no backlash. Then, Beyoncé performed alongside a country music act, and she's gotten tons of backlash! She and Timberlake are both from the South, the difference? She's a black female, he's a white male. That, my friends, is what privilege looks like.
Shame on me for changing.... no no no... shame on you for stayin' the same.

This.

Up to that point, Janet wasn't exactly shy about showing off her body. It was only a matter of time before it backfired.

It probably was arranged between them, but the issue is that a black woman's career was so easily compromised while her white male partner in the incident received next to no flack.

@LongingHeart Justin had a career before Britney, he's career did not start with his relationship with Britney as well as he didn't make a career after their relationship... The world blamed Janet because it was HER show, Justin was a guest. Beyonce performed with Dixie Chicks at the CMA and received all that backlash. She did it on purpose. She KNEW that Dixie Chicks had controversial history. :wink:

As of the selfie taken at the voting booth, i do not know a thing about what the law orders, but in case you're right, then he should be punished.
