You’ll remember that the last time he officially headlined was that unfortunate wardrobe malfunction with Janet Jackson, something that followed him around for a quite a bit. I thought it was hilarious af though.
Some people on Twitter are NOT having it, though.
Unless Justin Timberlake starts his set by introducing Janet Jackson with an apology and then continues watching quietly while she does 12 minutes of her catalog solo, the Super Bowl can keep this halftime show.

Ouch. That’s some #meantweets treatment right there, but I’m sure they’ll throw a nod to it in some chauvinist football “men make the decisions in the NFL” sorta way.
