This Friday on Hulu, The New York Times releases the Super Bowl documentary Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson.
That may not be the worst news for Justin Timberlake, who expects to take a drubbing in this documentary. A rumor emerged this week from Atlanta where Justin is making a movie. He might be cheating – again – on Jessica Biel. He supposedly got drunk last weekend and hooked up with a random woman. (Remnants of his New Orleans infidelity with his co-star. Almost two years ago, exactly to the day.)
The Hulu documentary, Malfunction, focuses on Justin stripping off Janet Jackson’s top during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show and exposing her boob. Janet’s career never recovered while Timberlake seemingly skated free. One week after the Super Bowl, the Grammys honored him with an award but she was banned from attending!
Malfunction reconsiders the moment to “understand what people did, who was held accountable, and interrogate the lunacy of calling it a ‘malfunction.’” Justin Timberlake is in the center of those crosshairs.
Following a pair of scathing Britney Spears documentaries by the New York Times, Justin said he felt sorry. (quote) “I fell short in these moments and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism. I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson because I respect those women and I know I failed.” (The Daily Beast)
