A new documentary detailing the aftermath of Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction at the 2004 Super Bowl Halftime show is set to premier on Hulu, according to Hot New Hip Hop.
The one-hour-long documentary offers great insights into what transpired after the infamous incident that was seen on national Television as well as the impact it had on Jackson and co-performer Justin Timberlake’s career.
Jackson and her stylist had been reportedly working on a unique costume stunt for the show, but things took a different direction by the time the live performance came to pass.
According to TMZ, Les Moonves, CBS head at the time, “demanded a face-to-face apology from both Justin and Janet, implying if they didn’t, there’d be trouble.” While Timberlake reportedly sorted things out at the CBS office, Jackson refused to apologize.
Following the incident, Jackson’s career took a hit and she was banned from performing at The Grammy. Timberlake, on the other hand, went ahead and bagged the award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
The “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” singer has since apologized on multiple occasions. He issued a formal apology through his notes app in February this year, saying he was “deeply sorry.”
