Back in 2004, something cray cray happened during the Super Bowl...
Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson were performing during the halftime show together. JT was singing his hit single "Rock Your Body", dancing around with Ms. Jackson onstage, when the big finale went incredibly left.
When Justin pulled on the icon's costume for what must've been a part of the act, the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" went down.
Since then, Jackson had been shut out from performing during the Super Bowl halftime show (something which the NFL denied years later), BUT... JT was invited back for this year's game between the Eagles and the Patriots.
And it looks like fans have something to say about it.
Enter: Janet Jackson Appreciation Day.

She made you realize that you don’t know what you got until it’s gone
She took CONTROL!

In 1997 Janet released an anthem to a friend she lost to HIV/AIDS called Together Again. It’s a beautiful and empowering song, and the video she released with it is stunning. #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay pic.twitter.com/erZxhrPjZO— Calvin (@calvinstowell) February 4, 2018
Today, let's all remember that the outrage was directed at a black woman instead of a white man. #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay— Pé Resists (@4everNeverTrump) February 4, 2018
What are you celebrating today?
The game or Ms. Jackson? Or both?
