Jackson Regrets Apologising For Super Bowl Incident

More than two and a half years after her breast was exposed to nearly 100 million viewers during the Super Bowl, JANET JACKSON has finally spoken out about the debacle and insists she shouldn't have apologised. The ALL FOR YOU singer taped an appearance on the OPRAH WINFREY show on 7 September (06), where she discussed the fiasco for the first time. Jackson apologised for the "wardrobe malfunction" days after the event occurred, but now says she regrets saying sorry because it made her look guilty for something that was an accident. The 40-year-old star told Winfrey she has not spoken with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE since their performance on 1 February 2004, when he infamously ripped her costume, leaving her partially naked. When Winfrey asked if she felt betrayed, Jackson would not answer directly, but said cryptically, "Loyalty comes first to me." Jackson, whose appearance on Winfrey's show will air on 26 September (06), claims she doesn't hold a grudge against the SEXYBACK singer and still considers him a friend.

"Loyalty comes first" Let's see how that fits with these two scenarios:1) 2003 - Justin Timberlake backs out of a (remixed) single release with Mariah Carey because he doesn't want his name linked with her then career troubles. His girlfriend (widely reported to have had 'issues' with Carey in the past after she snubbed overtures made by Diaz' [then] boyfriend Matt Dillon) praised his decision to hang Mariah Out To Dry.2) 2004 - Timberlake goes to extreme lengths to distance himself from Janet Jackson after their Superbowl performance and the nasty backlash that shortly ensued; immediately hanging Janet Out. To. Dry.2005 - After Mariah Carey's return to prominence, Justin tells anyone who would listen how much he would love to work with her again for his upcoming album and also how keenly receptive he would be to the release of their previously recorded duet.2005/6 - In keeping with the traditional promotional buzz, Justin aims for a more 'bad boy' image, and repeatedly refers to his part in the 2004 Superbowl incident he was previously so determined NOT to be considered a part of."Loyalty comes first" JDJ? I think it's clearly evident that a 'loyal' theme runs through Justin's career and life all right; his 'loyalty' to HIMSELF.
