After the success of the documentary Framing Britney Spears, its producers Left/Right TV are planning to take the viewers inside the Super Bowl “nipplegate” controversy during the 2004 Super Bowl half-time show.

The world was left stunned due to Justin Timberlake’s humiliation of Janet Jackson, with Janet taking the brunt of the entire fiasco. During the halftime show, Justin Timberlake tore Janet Jackson’s costume and ended up exposing her breast, later branding it as a “wardrobe malfunction”. This one moment ignited a nationwide debate that talked about decency on television.

Left/Right TV produced an episode about Britney Spears’ conservatorship for FX’s documentary series The New York Times which was immensely popular amongst the audience. Due to this episode, the movement “Free Britney” gained traction which aims to get Britney out of the conservatorship.

This conservatorship doesn’t allow her to escape from a highly-controlled life and business with Jamie Spears, her father. Steps are in place to have Jamie removed as her conservator, an action that is awaited by many loyal fans.

A major chunk of the documentary Framing Britney Spears portrays her as a victim of patriarchy and misogyny. Due to the buzz surrounding the documentary, a new conversation struck which shed light on Janet Jackson, who suffered the consequences of the entire debacle.

However, it was recently revealed by Janet Jackson’s stylist during the 2004 Super Bowl that Justin Timberlake had planned this moment to steal the spotlight from Britney Spears. The intent was to overshadow Madonna and Britney’s Spears performance at the VMA’s which included the artists sharing a kiss.

After the backlash, Justin Timberlake released an apology towards both Janet Jackson and Britney Spears, whom he dated in the early 2000s.

He posted the apology on his Instagram handle in which he said:

“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right.”

He continues and specifically apologizes to both Britney and Janet, and shares that he cares and respects both of them, despite failing at his actions. He talks about the entertainment industry and how it pushes white men for success.

“I know this apology is the first step and doesn’t absolve of the past. I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports”

continues Justin.
