10 ridiculous celebrity fails..

7. Janet Jackson – “Nipplegate” 



How can anyone forget the bare-all-boob performance by Janet Jackson at the hands of Justin Timberlake? During the Super Bowl XXXVIII Half-Time Show, Jackson and Timberlake took to the stage in Houston, Texas. They were singing Timberlake’s hit song “Rock Your Body” and totally engaged the crowd in their performance. After Timberlake sang “better have you naked by the end of this song,” let’s just say he meant it. He pulled at Jackson’s jacket exposing her nipple which was fashioning a sun-like nipple ring. Since the Super Bowl is live, viewers saw everything!

The infamous incident earned nicknames such as “Nipplegate.” CBS was sued for indecent exposure on national television by the FCC. Though the case was essentially thrown out, this incident marked the beginning depletion of morality on television by other broadcast stations. Timberlake never stated what his role was in this scandal, however Jackson was mortified. Her years of trying to make a comeback kicked off on a bad note and a bare nipple. On the plus side, video sharing became the next big thing and from what it looks like, Justin Timberlake is still on top with his career.
