We could quibble about the difference between "support" and "approval" but that would be very Clintonesque of us dont you think?I guess I would still be very proud and supportive of them.
Too me your statement about Janet being over the top means her performance was great, in your opinion, yet in the second paragraph you say what she did wasn't appropriate. To me you can't have it both ways an "over the top" performance and an not appropriate preformance. Yes, we can be supportive of our children, no matter what age, however by showing support for acts that may not be appropriate, like bearing a breast on family television, we would be condoning that behavior. My point would be you can't have it both ways.Personally, I thought it was the most entertaining Superbowl halftime ever. Kid Rock was
actually singing live (which I think is a first) and the Janet thing was over the top. I think by
definition she wasn't technically nude due to the silver star shaped apparatus she had on
covering her breast. This star shaped thingy throws serious doubt on the claims that the
incident was an "malfunction" unless Janet wears these large metallic pasties 24X7. Who
knows, she's a Jackson and we all know how eccentric they are right?
For the record, I am not a supporter of censorship, and I think most of us Americans are
way over sensitive to nudity. HOWEVER even I think the Janet thing was inappropriate.
The Superbowl is billed as a family show and there were no doubt hundreds of thousands
of kids watching.
You can almost smell them lawsuits a cookin'..
You lost me Flosum. If the above questions were directed at me, my answers where yes, and yes.Do you think they should be fined, as being discussed, and held responsible for their actions? If it were your daughter, would you agree she should be held responsible for her actions and fined or barred form Grammy’s? (That too was talked bout but they decided against it but plan on going with a delayed broadcast.)
I did not see this as it happened, however have seen replays in slow motion. I have to agree with you baby, the depiction of a man tearing clothing from a woman is troublesome and degrading. There are too many woman in this country that are being victimized in this manner everyday, that using that type of imagery is sad. I guess I feel some pity for Janet Jackson feeling the need to pimp herself in that manner.I couldn't figure what it was about the Superbowl thing that bothered me. Wasn't really
the nudity. I used to watch MTV and every other Madonna or heavy metal video had
something like that. Then I realized it was the depiction of a guy tearing a woman's
clothing. That may seem harmless, but I'll say from the standpoint of someone who was
assaulted that whether the guy is even able to do what he intended or not is not the
