Janet Was Reportedly Blackballed Post Super Bowl Nip Slip By CBS Exec

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that CBS CEO Les...

After the incident, Moonves reportedly banned both Jackson and Timberlake from the 2004 Grammys broadcast, which aired on CBS the week after the Super Bowl.

The CBS chief executive, according to sources who spoke to me, was furious that Jackson didn't make a similarly contrite apology to him.

The 2004 Super Bowl halftime performance did not conclude so well for Superstar Janet Jackson, after singer Justin Timberlake ripped the fabric from her bustier, exposing her breast.

The Huffington Post's Yashar Ali describes Moonves as "obsessed" with damaging Jackson's career after interpreting the wardrobe malfunction to be a publicity stunt.

HuffPost added that Moonves "ordered Viacom properties VH1 and MTV, and all Viacom-owned radio stations to stop playing Jackson's songs and music videos".

Nadal advances to US Open semi-final
Within the quarterfinals, the Tandil native defeated American John Isner with a rating of 6:7 (5:7), 6:three, 7:6 (7:four), 6:2. Not only was Nadal two points from losing at 5-all in the closing tiebreaker, but he finished with fewer total points , 171-166.

CBS and the halftime show's producer, MTV, which were both under the parent company Viacom at the time, faced criticism and a $550,000 fine from the Federal Communications Commission. According to Huff Post's sources, Timberlake was later allowed by Moonves after he apologized for the incident tearfully.

Embattled CBS chairman Les Moonves has found himself at the center of controversy yet again. "The fallout from the incident inflicted significant damage on Jackson's career ― which until that point had produced 10 No. 1 hits ― and still reverberates to this day", he writes. He vowed to another source that heads would roll as a result but it's unclear if any ever did.

"How the f-k did she slip through?" a furious Moonves asked, according to a source.

Well Moonves is dealing with karma right about now as he battles his own controversy about allegations of sexual misconduct stemming from an eight-month investigation by Ronan Farrow for The New Yorker.

Seven years later, when Moonves got to know Jackson had somehow penned a deal with Simon & Schuster (which is owned by Viacom) for her book "True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself", all hell broke loose. Moonves is now facing sexual harassment allegations.
