Madonna Won't Do a Janet Jackson At The Super Bowl
On February 5, Madonna will be the halftime entertainment at the Super Bowl, doing the impossible by turning a sports game into a Gay Olympics event.
Her guest star will supposedly be Cee Lo Green, and Madge will probably also be joined by her recording co-stars Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.
But she won't do a Janet!
As Madonna told NY1, she won't be planning "anything naughty."
"I'm planning something super-entertaining," she explained.
"You don't have to show nipples to be interesting.
"It doesn't necessarily mean you're cutting edge if you do, right?"
I hope she was just being cute in referencing that tired, old incident.
I'd hate to think Madonna the provocateur has belatedly joined the fundamentalist family-values crowd in dissing poor, beleaguered Janet for the least harmful act in pop history.
As this commentator noted, "Holy shit, is she serious? Does she not recall the things she did in the '90s?"
Good point -- but I guess showing your nibbly bits is not the same thing as showing your nipples, lol!
