The NFL has really taken shit to the next level, since apparently Janet Jackson is STILL banned from the Super Bowl 10 years after that fateful “wardrobe malfunction” in which she slipped a little nip, like it actually matters.
Several pop acts are apparently on the shortlist at the moment to perform at the upcoming game – people like Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay – but when TMZ reached out to ask if they were at all close to a decision, here’s what they said:
TMZ Sports reached out to the NFL to discuss possible acts at Super Bowl XLIX (49) in Arizona next year — and while the league wouldn’t say who’s in the running, they did issue the following statement:
“As for potential acts — we have only ruled out Janet Jackson.”
No word on how Justin Timberlake escaped the ire of the NFL — considering he played a key role in the infamous “wardrobe malfunction” that day — but if he’s NOT banned, BOOK HIS ASS!!!
Shaking my head at the woman having to take all the heat here, and also at America’s uptight bullshit about female nudity. Newsflash: Women have breasts. Your mother has breasts. It’s only sexualized when you make it so.
Let’s all just be honest and say that Janet Jackson wouldn’t be in the running because she hasn’t done anything interesting in the past decade, NOT over some bullshit Nipplegate crap.

Janet Jackson is batshit crazy, but even nutters deserve happiness. With that in mind, Janet has finally confirmed her marriage to Wissam Al Mana in answer to the “rampant rumours” that have been going on for weeks, apparently (this is the first time I’m hearing anything about this).
From Entertainment Tonight:
Rumors that Janet Jackson is planning her wedding to Wissam Al Mana have been flying fast and furious for weeks now. There’s only one problem: they’re already married!
In their first joint statement as a couple, Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana confirm the news exclusively to ET, saying, “The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony.”
“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet”
I love how insistent they were on letting everyone know that they didn’t do anything lavish. Y’all know I don’t feel weddings all that hard, but if I had to have one, you’d better believe that shit would be on fire! Literally – I’d have a giant, six level cake with sparklers and probably some jugglers doing their thing with fiery swords or something. (I wouldn’t, really.)
In any case, best of luck to them, I suppose. He’s either as insane as she is or finds that sort of thing endearing. Either way, good luck to the happy couple.

Remember Emily told you guys about a “physical” incident that occurred within the perimeter of the Jackson Estate? It was between that fiery fireball, Paris Jackson, and her auntie, Janet. IT’S ON. From TMZ:
Sources who were there say two SUVs with Randy, Jermaine and Janet inside, followed a car driving Michael Jackson’s 3 kids inside the gates. We’re told Randy, Jermaine and Janet did not have authority to enter.
Once on the grounds, we’re told MJ’s 3 siblings tried to strong-arm Paris, Prince and Blanket. Their mission was to get them in an SUV and take them to Arizona, where Katherine has been staying.
Our sources say at one point Janet tried to grab a resistant Paris’ cell phone, a scuffle ensued and Janet slapped the teenager, screaming, “You’re a spoiled little bitch!” We’re told Paris fired back with her own slap and told Janet, “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f**k out!”
At the same time, we’re told Trent Jackson, who was at the house, tried to stop an aggressive Randy and Jermaine. We’re told Trent put Randy in a headlock and punched Jermaine in the mouth.
Oh man, the classiness of this entire situation is amazing. Also, can I say that, while I’m slapping the official “I don’t condone violence of any sort” label on this entire post, I’m thrilled to pieces that Paris slapped Janet back? Because wow. I don’t even have the right words to convey to you the … I guess the absolute glee I feel knowing that there’s someone out there who won’t take shit from someone like Janet Jackson, and doesn’t even need to give their reaction a second thought.
I don’t know what’s going on with this family, but I’m glad to know that the “lesser” Jacksons aren’t taking any shit.

And I’ve got a myriad of photos to prove it!
Well, OK. No, not every celebrity known to man, but a bunch that allowed themselves to be photographed. I mean, it is New York City after all, right?

Some celebrities cop to drug abuse in order to deal with life’s traumatic events and others head for the nearest seedy bar to drown their sorrows.
However, neither is the case for Janet Jackson — her poison of choice after her brother Michael
was murdered passed away was food.
Janet opens up in a recent interview regarding her deceased brother and stated that food was more of a comfort to her than anything else during that dark period in her life:
“It’s stress. When I’m feeling down, I do turn to food. Normally people don’t eat; they don’t have an appetite… [For me] It’s just the opposite; you eat everything.”
I can totally understand where you’re coming from, Miss Jackson. I am for real when I say that I’m right there with you. When life makes me bum, I have to do my best to fend off stress or else I just end up spooning with Ben and Jerry in bed … or forking a big-assed plate of pasta.
It’s alright, though, babe. You’re still amazing in my book.

After first canceling a shitload of U.S. dates due to “vertigo,” Janet Jackson has now postponed the Japan leg of her Rock Witchu tour, citing “the impact of economic crisis.”
This is the most non-euphemistic euphemism I can think of to say “no one was buying tickets.” I mean, seriously, Janet, next time, just blame sushi.
