Former FCC Chairman Admits That FCC May Have Overreacted To Janet Jackson's Nipple Exposure
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.23.2014



In an interview with (via USA Today), former FCC chairman Michael Powell commented on the controversial halftime show at the Super Bowl ten years ago, in which Justin Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson's breast.

He said: "I think we've been removed from this long enough for me to tell you that I had to put my best version of outrage on that I could put on. Part of it was surreal, right? Look, I think it was dumb to happen, and they knew the rules and were flirting with them, and my job is to enforce the rules, but, you know, really? This is what we're gonna do?"

Powell and the FCC fined CBS $550,000 for the exposure, the largest fine in history at the time. MTV executive producer Salli Frattini, who oversaw the show, didn't know what had happened immediately.

Frattini said: "We were like, Uh, we're playing that back right now'. There was lots of chaos in the truck, and we played it back and we were like, Oh, [expletive]. What just happened?' "

Producer Alex Coletti added: "Her entire camp stopped answering the phones. I finally got to her tour manager, and they were already at the airport. No, she set us up and she's out of here. That was the last time I've seen or heard from Janet Jackson."
