TUE 3rd FEB: THE TROUBLE WITH JANET

It's interesting to see what goes on with the Janet Jackson Super Bowl 'cover-her-up-quick'.

Ms Jackson releases a statement today saying that "decision to have a costume reveal at the end of my halftime show performance was made after final rehearsals. MTV was completely unaware of it".

So how is it that MTV released a press release before the weekend promising that Janet Jackson will bring 'shocking moments' at half time and also said "one of the top questions along with 'Who's going to win?' is 'What will Janet Jackson be doing at the halftime show?'"

So MTV must have made the decision to go ahead with it. The reason I bother to comment is that I can just imagine a pathetic marketing department at MTV searching for answers for what went wrong - wondering why Madonna could get away with it on an awards show. Well maybe the answer is (a) we all know and expect Madonna to shock in the name of publicity and (b) MTV awards are so tacky this sort of behavior just enhances the show. Now, try the same stunt with a troubled aging diva and the nations favorite family event and what do you expect......
