NFL Confirms Janet Jackson Is NOT Banned From Performing At The Super Bowl

Are you sitting down? Janet Jackson could make an appearance at the Super Bowl.

Justin Timberlake just confirmed he will headline the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show. Details are scarce, but it’s safe to assume he’ll bring on some special guests during the 12-minute stint, and if he chooses to do so, one of those superstar acts could be Janet Jackson.

It’s been rumored for years Jackson was banned from ever performing at the Super Bowl again because of her stunt with JT during their performance together in 2004, but TMZ Sports confirms that’s not true, saying “there’s no ban.” You read that right: Janet Jackson *can* perform at the Super Bowl. They also cautioned JT might opt for no special guests like Lady Gaga did earlier this year.

Can we expect Nipplegate 2.0? “That won’t happen this time,” Timberlake told NBC Sports anchor Mike Tirico on Sunday Night Football. “There was a little bit of that [discussion]. But no, Mike, that’s not going to happen.”

As for what we can expect from JT’s performance? Hopefully high energy. “I’ve watched a ton of [previous halftime shows] just to make sure that we’re not pulling out any gags,” he said. “People are flying, and Lady Gaga jumped from the top of the stadium or something [this February]. I don’t know, man. I’m 36 now. I don’t know how much of that I can do anymore.”
