'Justice For Janet': Super Bowl Fans Question Adam Levine's Nip Slip

Adam Levine showed off his nips during the Super Bowl LIII half-time show -- but fans couldn't help but remember what happened to Janet Jackson back in 2004.

While performing with Justin Timberlake, musical icon Janet Jackson experienced a wardrobe malfunction that got her music blacklisted on MTV and CBS.

Timberlake ripped Jackson's Alexander McQueen bustier off during the broadcast, exposing her breast to nearly 150 million viewers in the event known as 'Nipplegate'.

The "All For You" singer bore the brunt of the backlash, despite Timberlake being the one who was responsible for the nip slip. Jackson hasn't performed at a Super Bowl event since, while Timberlake was the headliner at last year's match.
