You may have been sitting in your living room watching the 2004 Super Bowl on TV, or you were out with friends at a bar, or you saw it online the next day, but you definitely saw Justin Timberlake tear off part of Janet Jackson's clothing at the end of the half-time performance, which exposed her breast.

Whether the incident, famously known as "Nipplegate", was faked or not, it sparked public debate. Soon after, CBS was fined more than half a million dollars and the FCC enacted a five-second broadcast delay during all live performances.

Jackson described the moment as "truly embarrassing". Rumors surrounding her ban from the Super Bowl started to circulate. However, these rumors were disproved by Timberlake, who said there is no ban.

Fast forward 13 years, Justin Timberlake has confirmed that he'll perform at the 2018 Super Bowl half-time show.

But not everyone is happy about this announcement.
