Diddy’ Combs, Christina Aguilera, *NSYNC star JC Chasez, Jane’s Addiction star Dave Navarro and wife Carmen Electra spoke with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet of the Grammy Awards about the controversial Super Bowl halftime show where Justin Timberlake exposed the breast of Janet Jackson — everyone sided with Janet.

If CBS Is So Concerned About Nudity…

CBS Goes For Wholesome Performers At Grammys
February 9, 2004 – Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Friday night, “I guess you heard – CBS is barring Janet Jackson from the Grammy Awards. I guess that CBS would prefer to go with more wholesome performers like R. Kelly, and Christina Aguilera, rappers who talk about their ho’s and bitches. … Because of Janet Jackson’s performance at the Super Bowl, the Grammy Awards will now be on a five minute delay. So they can take out any mistakes. Dick Cheney now wants to use the technology on President Bush’s speeches. … Even though Janet Jackson has been dropped from the Grammys, Justin Timberlake is still performing. I don’t know who Justin will be performing with at the Grammys, but I’m kinda hoping for Dolly Parton. That wouldn’t be any one handed deal.”
