Has Janet Jackson Finally Moved On and Forgiven Justin?

We all have heard about the incident that occurred at the 2004 Super Bowl halftime concert. Both Justin and Janet fired up the headlines afterward. The pop star tackled the repercussions of the notorious 2004 Super Bowl halftime concert alongside Justin Timberlake. She did so with the two-part documentary named Janet Jackson.

What is It all about? 

It premiered across Lifetime as well as A&E. Together in the self-recorded clip, Janet added, “Really, well the whole incident was exaggerated massively out of context. Obviously, it’s an unfortunate event that should never have occurred.” However, everybody is looking for anyone to accuse, but that has to end.” On the other hand, the pop star claims that both she and Justin are still friends. “Justin and I have been close pals, and we would always be close pals,” she continued. “We recently chatted a couple of days earlier.”

She said that she and Justin had moved on, and they want the rest of the world to move on as well. Janet bore the brunt of the backlash following the “Nipplegate” event and faced serious repercussions. Along with being banned by Viacom, she was also “blackballed” from the Grammys. Moreover, Timberlake’s fame flourished.

What Was Justin’s Take On the Matter? 

Janet stated that Timberlake questioned her whether he should come out publically amidst the outrage. “I remember talking with him once, so he said, ‘I’m not sure whether I ought to stand up and make a comment,'” Janet recounted. “‘Look, I wouldn’t want any trouble for anybody,’ I said. ‘The world is aiming everything at me,’ says the narrator. ‘If I had been you, I would still say nothing,’ I replied.

Timberlake’s management approached her about singing with him during the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show, but Janet refused. After the premiere of the Framing Britney Spears film in February, Timberlake delivered a formal apology to Janet and Britney Spears.

Justin Timberlake Wants Janet to Accept His Apology

He said that he wants to express heartfelt regret both to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. Moreover, he said that he respects and appreciates both ladies. He added that he has realized that he has made a mistake. He further added:

“I additionally feel obligated to answer. Since everyone concerned wants more, and, more significantly. This is part of a wider discussion that I sincerely want to participate in and develop. The system is dysfunctional.”

He went on to say: “It positions men, particularly white males, for achievement. This is how the world wants it to be, but it’s wrong. As a male in a privileged position, I feel compelled to speak out against it. I didn’t see it for what it is all because of my naivety while that was occurring outside my own existence, but I don’t want to benefit from those being brought down once more. I haven’t always done a great job of navigating all of this during my career. I understand that this apology is only a beginning step and that it does not exonerate the past.”

Janet gave the audience a sneak peek into the next stage of their renowned profession by playing a new tune titled “Luv I Luv,” written by Harmony Samuels, towards the conclusion of her documentary.
