Please explain to me why this is such a big deal. Is it because we still haven’t accepted that—gasp—women have breasts? Is it because she’s famous and it’s exciting to see a famous semi-naked breast that isn’t attached to a porn star and/or Demi Moore? Didn’t we already know Janet was augmented and pierced? Is it really that big a deal that we got to see proof? Is this getting so much coverage (no pun intended) because it’s been a slow news week and Madonna is holed up penning another children’s book?
What annoys the crap out of me is the claim that it was “an accident.” Give me a break. It was a staged display of semi-nudity (if you can tear your gaze away from Janet’s silcone-and-metal-enhanced breast, you will notice the snaps on the outfit that allowed the baring of her boobage) designed to stimulate some talk about the careers of a flagging pop star and one trying to change his baby-faced image. Yawn. Boring.
I want equality. I want Justin’s (or better, Nelly’s) pants to have a rip-away front. I want men to realize they are being marginalized because they insist on wearing baggy, unattractive clothing that leaves everything to the imagination. It’s time for you guys to take a stand! Strip down! Go public! Make the news! The poor guy who danced around in his g-string didn’t get any attention at all. That’s just wrong. Next time, he should ditch the g-string. Carrying Janet Jackson across the field might increase his air-time, too.
Now, who wants to talk about the truly accidental nudity after the playoff game a couple weeks ago? Oh… don’t know about that one, huh? I wonder why?
