Janet’s wardrobe malfunction was ‘a good thing’
With Tom Brady retiring (yet again), it looks like he’ll be spending more time on his podcast grind. However, during the latest episode of him Let’s go! Podcast, the former NFL player made a comment about Janet Jackson’s on-air wardrobe malfunction that didn’t go over well.
Specifically, Tom proclaimed that the infamous incident — which took place at the end of Janet and Justin Timberlake’s 2004 Super Bowl halftime show — was “probably a good thing for the NFL.”
Tom Brady admits he “saw nothing” during the incident
The topic came up as Tom and his co-hosts Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray chatted harmlessly about whether Brady had been watching the halftime shows while playing.
In response, Tom initially simply replied, I’d rather not see it when I play.”
He mentioned the 2004 Super Bowl, which saw the New England Patriots take on the Carolina Panthers. Tom specifically mentioned that since he was busy with the game during Janet’s wardrobe malfunction, he “didn’t see anything”.
“Even I remember when we beat Carolina… We came off the field and that’s when we had the wardrobe malfunction with Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson. [The media was] ask me about it. I couldn’t even understand what they were telling me. They said, ‘Did you see the halftime show?’ and I said, ‘I didn’t see anything.’ I thought about the game.”

He says Janet’s mishap was “just more publicity” for the NFL
Tom didn’t stop there, however, as he then discussed how Janet’s wardrobe malfunction was “probably a good thing” since it produced “more publicity” for the NFL.
“I think in the end it was probably a good thing for the NFL because everybody could talk about it, and it was just more promotion and more promotion for halftime shows. Is advertising bad advertising? That’s what they say, so who knows?”
We should bear that in mind during a 2006 session oprahJanet talked about how “all the emphasis was put on it [her]’ as opposed to Justin who was the one baring her chest. As a result, she was “blacklist‘ while Justin ‘had a flourishing career’.
Also in their year 2022 documentaryShe also remarked, “I’ve moved on and it’s time for everyone to do the same.”
As a result, people just weren’t here for Tom Brady’s comment. Check out some reactions below.
Janet Jackson faced public humiliation and open misogyny, which led to her being blacklisted by the former CEO of CBS, but Tom Brady thinks that’s all fine because all publicity is good publicity. Sick.

Tom Brady makes these comments about Janet Jackson but is so ignorant he can’t even understand that for years she was ratted out, shoved out of the spotlight and shamed for it despite being Micheal Jackson’s little sister. Mr bffr.
