Janet Jackson at the Superbowl

Rumors were circulating all week of a surprise cameo appearance at the Superbowl halftime show, supposedly Janet Jackson was going to sneak Michael onstage, to the horror of NFL execs.

But evidently the cameo Janet was planning was for her right breast? It appears Justin Timberlake "accidentally" rendered Miss Jackson pseudo-topless while serenading her with "Rock Your Body" ("have you nekkid by the end of this song").

I'm listening to the game on the radio (no cable), so after reading all these frantic postings online I was a little disappointed to find an amount of nipple coverage that indicates this was staged. Still made a nice splash with it so far though, if they were trying to one-up Britney/Madonna/Christina they may have pulled it off.

EDIT: I'm going with the theory that this was Justin and Janet's protest against CBS' refusal to run the moveon.org ad.. "Oh we've got your controversial public policy issue... right HERE!"

ANOTHER EDIT: Upon closer inspection, I retract my assessment of the nipple coverage. It was still staged though.
