CBS chief executive was reportedly fixated on “ruining” Janet Jackson’s career after Super Bowl

It's no big secret that Janet Jackson's career suffered tremendously after Justin Timberlake tore off her bustier at the Super Bowl in 2004. But a new report describes Les Moonves, the chief executive of CBS, as playing a particularly vengeful role in the fallout. The Huffington Post's Yashar Ali describes Moonves as "obsessed" with damaging Jackson's career after interpreting the wardrobe malfunction to be a publicity stunt.

Moonves banned both Jackson and Timberlake from the 2004 Grammys, which aired on CBS that year, but eventually allowed Timberlake to perform after an emotional apology. Jackson, he perceived, was not "sufficiently repentant," and he insisted that all Viacom properties (including MTV, VH1 and countless radio stations) stop playing her music.

The report goes on to describe Moonves's reaction upon learning Jackson signed a book deal with Viacom-owned Simon & Schuster in 2011: "how the fuck did she slip through?” Moonves is currently on the outs at CBS following an extensive report by the New Yorker exposing multiple allegations of sexual harrassment against the executive. Jackson recently dropped her first single in years, "Made For Now."

I guess karma reared its ugly head. He is getting what he deserves. Smh

And now he's OUT (reportedly without his golden parachute) woot!

-

Yup. Do you think Janet should sue him for sabotaging her career since more evidence has come out or should she leave it alone and allow him reap what he's sown for himself without getting involved?

-

I'm sure she doesn't want to revisit the worst moments of her career and probably doesn't want to remind the public of it either. But there could also be recompense for purposely sabotaging someone's career for failure too.

I absolutely think she should. In this era of #MeToo, it would send a direct message and show that she's taking a stand not only for herself but for the women he's asserted his power over for all these years.

Chen was expected to announce her exit Tuesday.

“She has decided that her main focus needs to be clearing her husband’s name from accusations made 25 to 30 years ago and tending to her son,” a source told CNN of Moonves’ wife’s decision to step down from her role as co-host on the CBS daytime talk show

To be fair, it's not about her. She has a family. Her husband was the one who did wrong, she didn't. This is the problem with the media. People expect someone to do something, when they don't have to do anything. It's her right to act the way she does, she didnt do anything.

Right, but for her to say with a straight face on The Talk that Janet never offered an apology (she did) and that Justin did offer one, which resulted in Justin being able to attend the Grammys that year, is a lie. What happened was Janet didn't call her husband crying, sniveling and contrite, and thus she was dis-invited and blacklisted. Add to it that Julie now looks like a hypocrite after pretty much saying that Weinstein's wife and Camille Cosby should leave their husbands, all the while adding the "Moonves" professionally to her name when she has never done such in all the years she's been married to CREEPves. To me, that "Chen-Moonves" announcement was a dig and a big FU to the women coming forward against her husband.

Opinion: Janet Jackson returning to the spotlight while Les Moonves gets exposed is poetic justice https://hellogiggles.com/...s-justice/

Author Michael Arceneaux discusses the fall of Les Moonves who, in addition to being an alleged sexual assaulter and harasser, was revealed to have engineered Janet Jackson’s blacklisting after the 2004 Super Bowl.


For the first time in nearly a decade, Janet Jackson is engaged in a traditional promotional rollout for a new project.

It’s only for a single, “Made For Now” featuring Daddy Yankee, rather than for a full-length album, but the heightened visibility of the legendary pop star cannot be understated. She has returned to late-night television in order to perform the new track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She is gracing the covers of mainstream magazines like InStyle and Billboard. She is doing numerous radio interviews for stations across the country—a practice that many artists could stand to return to. But considering Jackson’s stature, it’s somewhat surprising that she would.

There is also an increasing amount of homages being paid to precious Janet, including at events like BET’s Black Girls Rock. She has been noticeably more active across social media—amassing a team that realizes Jackson needs to meet her sizable fan base where they are, and engage them. The same can be said for her performances at festivals throughout this recent summer.

The success of Jackson’s “Made For Now” has already been questioned by some, but as far as Janet Jackson’s legend and legacy are concerned, it hasn’t been this good for her since February 1st, 2004—the date of the infamous Super Bowl halftime show ...s nipple was exposed, resulting in Jackson’s effective blacklisting.

For those of us who love Janet Jackson and respect her contributions to music throughout her storied career, it is rewarding to see her once again dominate the platforms and garner the praise she deserves. It has always been unsettling to watch a nipple negate the status of an artist who twice in her career commanded the biggest recording con...f all time.

And while many long suspected that there was an intentional effort by powerful people to silence Jackson, the world has only recently been provided with a clearer picture of just how intentional those efforts were.

In an exclusive for HuffPost, reporter Yashar Ali revealed that Jackson “became a years-long fixation” for Les Moonves who, up until last week, was the CEO and chairman of CBS.

With respect to the “wardrobe malfunction,” Ali says that “Moonves has been open about the fact that the incident caused him embarrassment, and he told sources who spoke to me that Jackson, in his mind, was not sufficiently repentant.”

And because Jackson did not offer the sort of tearful apology that Justin Timberlake did, he retaliated. This included Moonves ordering “Viacom properties VH1 and MTV, and all Viacom-owned radio stations, to stop playing Jackson’s ...sic videos.”

This all but doomed the release of her 2004 album, Damita Jo. But as we’ve come to learn, the damage to Jackson’s career lasted for several years.

As fate would have it, Moonves’ own career is all but over in light of Ronan Farrow’s report for the New Yorker, which described the multiple allegations leveled at Moonves for sexual assaul...misconduct.

Farrow’s follow up story, published on September 9th, included six more accusers and led to Moonves’ ousting from CBS. Presently, Time’s Up is calling on CBS to donate Moonves’ $120 million severance package to groups that combat sexual harassment.

The fact that he is even in the running to receive such a payoff should make people of decency alarmed.

To wit, in the New York Times piece, “Threats and Deception: Why CBS’s Board Turned Against Leslie Moonves,” you learn that, frankly, many of the CBS board members knew what kind of man Les Moonves is—and they wanted him to remain in power all the same. He is only gone now because, in light of Farrow’s reporting and the number of women stepping forward to talk, there’s no way for him to remain CEO without the network facing substantial backlash.

Before I could even wonder who else had their success disrupted by this man, Linda Bloodworth Thomason—one of CBS’s biggest hitmakers—revealed in a piece for The Hollywood Reporter that Moonves ruined her career. Thomason, who created Designing Women, once had the largest producing and writing contract in the history of CBS. But for seven years, as she notes in the op-ed, he kept all of her shows off the air. Thomason wrote: “People asked me for years, ‘What happened to you?’ Les Moonves happened to me.”

She then paints a grim albeit realistic picture: “The truth is, Les Moonves may never be punished in the way that he deserves. He will almost certainly never go to jail. And he has already made hundreds of millions of dollars during his highly successful and truly immoral, bullying, misogynist reign.”

If it were up to me, Les Moonves would spend the rest of his life in a lonely prison cell gargling his own spit for amusement as he contemplates the fact that he wasted the precious gift of life on Earth by being an alleged abusive, mean, vile, disgusting predator. But as Thomason writes, it is far more plausible that he will spend the rest of his life in leisure.

That’s why, as elated as I am to see Janet Jackson’s success resurface despite efforts from Moonves—and as powerful as it is to see creatives like Linda Bloodworth Thomason speak out—I’m haunted by how many more women are surely waiting to tell their stories. And how many more men have pushed those women into silence.

That said, Thomason did end with a promise to the latter: “We are not going to stop until every last one of you is gone. We don’t care anymore if you go to jail or go to hell. Just know at some point that you are leaving.”

The sooner, the better.

It would be great if some former or current staffer @ CBS, Viacom or Clear Channel/iHeart Radio could make public emails, texts or phone calls that captures his vendetta against her. I read somewhere just yesterday that Ashley Judd is now suing Harvey Weinstein for defamation.

ok, was at the grocery store yesterday and heard faintly a song that seemed to be janet but i couldn't tell for sure. it was a groove heavy slower jam, but not a 'bedroom ballad' that she is known for. hard to describe it, but it had a recurring drum kick with wispy vocals on it. i made a beeline to my car to see if i could find it on the radio. but no such luck. it had "hit" all over it, but i am not 100% sure if its her. if not, best imitation ever. i know with made for now just out, it SHOULDN'T be time for a new song, but maybe this is what she's shoppping to BLACK radio (hate to say that), IF its her.... HELP!!!!

It was fun seeing that, I remember it. But it was just a lipsync. Blah. I liked the remix they did for the video to make it look live. I think they did the same with "What Have You Done For Me Lately" or something. Jimmy mentioned they redid some song on another show to make it feel live. Either way, that video and a couple of others around that time are such a great part of her history. It's Janet finally coming into her own as an artist in charge. She worked her ass off for it, too.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

OMG I was obsessed with this performance as a kid. Watched it over and over, learned every move, and forced my mother to watch me re-enact it on a nightly basis. This and the WHYDFML performance from the Grammy's, when she got all skinny for a minute. Classics.
