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.

If Janet Jackson can’t ever perform at the Super Bowl again then Justin Timberlake shouldn’t be able to either 🤷🏾♀️

Justin Timberlake officially doing Super Bowl halftime. Dream setlist:
– 9-minute Janet Jackson apology
– "Gone" (w/ *NSYNC)

The NFL is committed to social justice so Janet Jackson will make a surprise appearance to expose Justin Timberlake's dick at the Super Bowl

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.
