KCBS TV in Los Angeles spoke with *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake about exposing the breast of Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl in Houston on Sunday. “I do understand how unfortunate this is,” Timberlake admitted. “I do understand that there were a lot of people that were completely offended by what happened, including my family.”
Timberlake reveals he has been on tour when the request for him to do the Super Bowl came. He says he initially turned down the gig, but accepted when he got a personal call from Janet. Because he was busy in Spain, Timberlake says he couldn’t attend most of the halftime rehearsals. He had one day’s notice of Janet’s plan to do a “costume reveal” and says he was under the impression that the move would only expose a red bustier. “When what happened happened,” says Justin, “I was shocked and appalled. I was completely embarrassed.”
As for CBS’ decision to add a video delay to the Grammys, Justin says, “It’s a great idea.” The interview airs on CBS2 in Los Angeles during the 4PM (PST) newscast.
