Justin Timberlake may return to the Super Bowl halftime stage in February. What could be hotter in Minneapolis?

How about a reunion with Janet Jackson?

“Us Weekly cites an unnamed insider as its source and follows an earlier report that Timberlake is Pepsi’s Super Bowl LII show,” said The Washington Post. “Although Jay-Z was named as a co-star, a report on The Source.com recently stated that he has turned down the opportunity.”

Us Weekly’s insider said, “As of right now,” it will just be Justin. “No surprise performers.”

What? No surprises?

Michael Jackson’s little sister would be a perfect partner, showing she had put behind her the 2004 “wardrobe malfunction.”

As the Post recalled: “Timberlake ripped off a piece of Jackson’s costume, exposing her right breast. CBS quickly issued a statement, The Post reported the next day, saying: “The moment did not conform to CBS broadcast standards, and we’d like to apologize to anyone who was offended.”

The expressions “wardrobe malfunction” and “nipplegate” came into common usage after that snafu, for which the Federal Communications Commission fined CBS Corp. $550,000.

However, a federal appeals court threw that out, the Post noted.
