Rumor Alert: Justin Timberlake & Jay Z To Headline 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fmemberdata.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fhi%2Fhitsdd%2Fphotos%2Fhitsdd_photo_gal__photo_1688510677.jpg&hash=088fd41a257feb28959ae7795ddbd7f5Informed sources say discussions are underway for Justin Timberlakeand Jay-Z to perform together at halftime during Super Bowl LII (52) at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on 2/4.

It would be a huge look for RCA superstar Timberlake’s forthcoming album, due in early 2018.

JT and Jay-Z appeared together on the former’s smash “Suit and Tie” and the latter’s huge “Holy Grail,” and joined forces on the top-grossing Legends of the Summer Tour in 2013.

Timberlake's 20/20 Experience Part 1 debuted at #1 in March 2013 with 980k; it was the year's biggest debut and release; it’s racked up nearly 3.6m SPS. Part 2 hit later that year, bowing at #1 with 348k. The Complete Experience set, meanwhile, has amassed about 2.7m SPS. The accompanying tour earned more than $230m in ticket sales.

JT was of course part of the infamous halftime “wardrobe malfunction” at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004. In case you’re too stoned to remember, Timberlake tore away Janet Jackson’s costume during the show and—whether it was intentional or not—the exposure of her bare breast on global TV was treated as an apocalyptic event. The FCC fined CBS a record $550k, though this was later voided in court.

Though our moral guardians promised in the immediate aftermath that neither artist would ever perform at another Super Bowl, only Jackson was subsequently blacklisted by the NFL and not considered for any subsequent halftime bookings, while Timberlake was apparently let off the hook.

After the Grammy snubs that saw 20/20 and its singles left out of top-category nominations, Timberlake has since shown little inclination to perform at the Grammys xclear.png.pagespeed.ic.zaZh-vXmDi.webp, which in 2018 will go down on 1/28 in NYC.

Speaking of wardrobe malfunctions, these pants used to fit, we swear.


Rumor Mill - WILL TIMBERL... TOGETHER?

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

If Justin Timberlake steps on that Super Bowl stage AGAIN after Janet was blackballed in 2004, NO ONE cannot tell me that the blacklisting of Janet JACKSON did not have anything to with racism, being a Jackson and a woman. The fact that he is being considered proves that.

I find it TOTALLY disrespectful and disgusting that Justin Timberlake would EVEN agree to perform AFTER the way NFL treated Janet AND especially when HE was the one that tore of her shirt and exposed her breast. He was just as MUCH as apart of that performance as Janet and he did NOT receive NO backlash. Justin is a FAKE and a fraud but I don't expect nothing less from the new age white golden boy aka 2017 Elvis. He is White so he has the skin complesion for the protection despite being mediocre. Jay Z tap dancing HOUSE NEGRO ass ain't no better and if he was really "about that life" he would not be apart of this knowing how the NFL treated Janet compared to Justin. BOTH of them are frauds, JOKES and establishment pawns so I am not surprised if this is true. They are both going to continue to do this despite the way NFL treated Janet? None of them obviously have any dignity and self respct and Jay Z's faux deep rhetoric is just fake marketing bullshit.Fuq them and fuq the NFL. I will NOT be watching. I am proud to say I have not watched a half time performance since Prince performed, God rest his soul. The NFL like many have said in that other thread is DONE. They always choose the same boring ass people to perform due to under the table politics. They act like only 5 performers exist. They could ask Rihanna, Pink, Bieber, Taylor etc or anybody else who hasn't done it yet.

I wouldn't mind that. But it would be the third time he's played the halftime show. And if Bey shows up just because, it'd be her third time, too.

I'm really surprised Taylor Swift rumors haven't popped up. She released a Kanye diss today, and an album is due in November.

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

I'm "meh" on Justin but cool with Jay; decent combo if true. Even though they weren't my first choice (JT at least), they're a better choice than bland, boring acts like Bieber or Ed Sheeran.

They both knew what was going to happen when he pulled on her clothes. She gave him the permission to do so and it backfired on her.
This could be a good show, but nothing will beat Prince's halftime show.

.

How does it prove that? It was not Justin's TIDDAY nor did JANET Jackson sue or accuse or reinforce the fact that SHE did NOT want this to happen OR that she did/didn't PLAN for this to happen. The FCC took actiona against CBS NETWORK for LETTING this happen. Is she a VICTIM or did her stunt BACKFIRE? Or was it a MISTAKE? All we know is it was HANGING out during primetime while millions of Americans were eating hot dogs and burgers with their families. Where's the racist, Jackson hating, feminist part? If it were Justin's DONG for instance CBS would have been sued but would that be racist, Jackson hating and anti-feminist?

if it was just a dream, call me a dreamer 2

Janet was black balled as a result of the backlash and JT was also apart of that performance but he did not experience anything, nothing. If Janet is banned from the NFL and can never perform again , Justin should not be able to perform again either. He was ALSO apart of that performance. Janet was not up there by herself. Whether it was Janet who wanted him to rip her clothing off or whether it was his idea is irrevelant because HE did it and was apart of the performance so he should receive the same equal consequences as Janet but we know why he won't. He is white and has the skin complexion for the protection. Her black balling and blacklisting has everything to do with her being Black, a Jackson and a woman. If Justin was Black, he would have received harsh back lash too. Its disgusting he is being up for consideration.

Not only that, he threw her under the bus and said he had nothing to do with it.

I guess it would not have been a issue if they weren't friends BUT he was someone that Janet considered a friend which makes his comments even more problematic and backstabbing. He is clearly a fake.

yeahthat

.

Maybe to promote her new tour and her head to toe coverage?

.

I still don't think its racist or anti-women or anti-Jackson, its more anti-boobage on primetime TV. It could've been anyone's boobs, even Madonna's. Speaking of Madonna, M.I.A. herself was sued for her middle finger and no ones calling that anti-women or racist and fingers aren't even a "private part".

Exactly, why would she want to do it again after it ruined her career? She is banned from NFL so she can't do it again anyway and I doubt Janet would even want too. Her half time wasn't even included in their half time memoriam in 2016.

She's right, and as far i remeber the media did not attack Justin the same way the did with Janet, or they didn't attack him at all.

if it was a stunt and it backfired there were still 2 people on that stage, there were 2 people performing,so if she is banned by the nfl for life he should be as well.

Yuuuuup and I don't recall the Grammys showing her 1987 performance on any of those best of shows either sad Wasn't she also given a life-time ban from them as well?
