Re: an outlet..

This was an example of extreme marketing of the type Madonna has popularized. It's true that Janet Jackson is out of style these days. It's also likely that not many kids knew who she was prior to last week end. However, they all know now. :)

I gather that Janet it releasing a new album, and it would be interesting to follow up and see if this episode has increased sales. The problem, of course, is that she happened to pull off the stunt just as the FCC was cracking down on broadcast media to reduce "obscenity."


P.S. What did your kids think of the show?

Regarding the Super Bowl halftime show, I was in TV mode, had the kids all
squared away, snacks made, the whole thing, ready to enjoy the game, the
commercials and the half time show.

I have totally enjoyed them in the past. So, I watched.

I liked Nelly and P. Diddy......can't help it. Kid Rock was cool too. For
the life of me, I couldn't understand why the hell Janet Jackson was invited
to perform. She isn't even popular these days is she?? With all the mess her
brother is in, she should just stay home and not risk bring more attention to
that freaky-ass family. But, since Justin Timberlake was with her, I felt
obligated, in the most juvenile way, to watch.

The two of them did not seem to have any chemistry. The energy was so low,
they both looked out of breath and uncomfortable. By the time it came time for
him to flash her boob, I had written the performance off as being a waste of
time and apparently missed the best part!

I vote for Roger and Pete to do the half time show next year.  Everyone
agree!!  yeeehaaaa!!!!
