Dan Aquilante of the New York Post caught up with *NSYNC star JC Chasez and asked him about the fallout he suffered after his bandmate Justin Timberlake exposed the breast of Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl. “Yeah. It wasn’t fair,” JC said of his Pro Bowl removal.
“I know it was a sensitive situation, and I understand why they did it. What (Janet and Justin) did was a big deal, but it wasn’t as big a deal as everyone made out,” JC argued. “Some people claimed emotional distress because of it. Give me a break. Compared to the average news broadcast, with reports about terrorist bombings, war and death, how harmful is one naked breast? It’s really comes off as hypocritical to me. Did that boob harm anyone? No.”
Asked what he thought was more important than Janet Jackson’s nipple, Chasez responded, “Well, we’re in a year when we are electing a new president. How about that? We’re in the middle of a war. There isn’t enough money for schools. The list of what’s important is really long, and America was worried about a nipple. Our priorities are all out of whack.”
