Justin Timberlake is set to headline this year's Super Bowl half-time show on February 4 — and the internet isn't pleased.
In 2004, Timberlake ripped open Janet Jackson's shirt during their Super Bowl performance, exposing her bare breast. The enraged public immediately slammed the pair for the "inappropriate" display and demanded apologies from both Timberlake and Jackson.
Timberlake gave a "half-assed" apology and was able to move past the incident without compromising his career; Jackson's career, on the other hand, never fully recovered.
Nearly 14 years have passed, and the internet is *still* waiting for Timberlake to give a true apology to Jackson before returning to the stage.
Timberlake, however, claims he and Jackson have already put the controversy behind them.
After receiving backlash for signing onto this year's Super Bowl, Timberlake quickly tried to set the record straight.
In a recent interview with radio host Zane Lowe, Timberlake admitted that the performance had a number of issues.
"I stumbled through it," Timberlake noted. "I had my wires crossed. I can't change what happened but I can move forward and learn from it."
Timberlake claimed he was hesitant to acknowledge the incident because he "values the relationship" he has with Jackson, but he insisted that they both have moved past it.
Fans noted Jackson has yet to publicly share her thoughts about the performance. Therefore, they can't confirm that she's as "over it" as Timberlake claims.
If they really *have* made peace, the internet wants to hear it from Jackson herself.
