Justin Timberlake Reportedly Puts New Music On Hold Ahead of Janet Jackson’s Highly-Anticipated Tell-All Documentary

Posted January 9, 2022

Janet Jackson is finally breaking her silence and taking back CONTROL in her highly-anticipated documentary that has been billed as a TWO-NIGHT EVENT, set to air on both Lifetime and A&E Networks this month.

The iconic superstar will finally pull back the “velvet rope” and let fans and the world in on a number of topics including her high profile relationships, her life as a sister, daughter, and mother, the death of her brother, Michael Jackson, and more.

However, the topic that everyone has been waiting for her to address is the infamous Superbowl Nipple-gate incident, how it impacted her career, and of course, Justin Timberlake and his betrayal of the superstar.

As recently revealed in an extended trailer for the documentary, Timberlake and his team (after years of going unscathed and prospering in his career) attempted to reach out to Janet to have her join him at the 2018 Superbowl halftime show which he was invited back to headline–while Janet has yet to be formally apologized to or invited back.

Now, ahead of the premiere of the documentary, JT and his team reportedly are saying “Bye, Bye, Bye” to all plans to release new music from his upcoming project including a previously teased collabo with Justin Bieber, SZA, and more due to fears of backlash from the documentary.

The SexyBack singer’s team are preparing damage control strategies after it was announced that the first half of the two-parter, titled Janet, would premiere on January 28 in the US.

She has spent years working on the documentary, which is yet to be confirmed for broadcast in the UK.

It will take an in-depth look at very personal parts of her story — particularly the shocking moment during the half-time show at the 2004 American Super Bowl when Justin unwittingly exposed her breast on stage.

A source said: “To say that Justin and his team are worried about the documentary is an understatement.

“There was a major backlash against him last year after the Framing Britney Spears documentary was released and he was criticised for how he treated Britney when they split up in 2002.

“Now they are bracing for details about the Super Bowl story, which weren’t previously known, to come out.

“He has quietly been working on music but there is no chance he will be putting anything out any time soon with this hanging over his head.

“The pencilled-in dates for his next release have been pushed back because it could certainly harm sales.”

Justin apologised in February last year for the way in which he had treated Britney and Janet, following widespread criticism on social media.

He said he was sorry to the two women for “contributing to the problem of misogyny”.

He was slammed for his past comments about ex-girlfriend Britney, and the way he failed to stand up for Janet after the Super Bowl incident.

He said at the time: “I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right.

“I specifically want to apologise to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.”

Needless to say, we’re uber excited for the documentary and Janet’s long-overdue redemption! The two-night event begins on Friday, January 28th at 8/7c and continues the following night on Lifetime and A&E!
