Justin Timberlake, fresh from releasing an album that's troubling and pandering and most of all just a bit shit, will play the Super Bowl LII halftime show at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, tomorrow afternoon. This, fans and critics suggested, might be a good opportunity for Timberlake to bring out Janet Jackson, whose career nosedived after a "wardrobe malfunction" (and Timberlake) exposed her mostly bare breast in the middle of the halftime show in 2004, at Super Bowl XXXVIII.

The same Prince The same Prince who put together the greatest halftime show of all time (fight me) at Super Bowl XLI in Miami 11 years ago. The same Prince who remained fiercely protective of his music and image until his untimely death in April 2016.
Fuck everything. The Patriots are going to win anyway and the world is on fire.
