Pictured above is Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake performing at the 2004 Super Bowl halftime performance. This is such an iconic photo for me because it was right after Justin Timberlake accidentally ripped off Janet Jackson’s garment on her chest, which ended up exposing her chest and causing so much controversy. I lived for this moment especially because it was live and unfiltered and who doesn’t love that? Many said that this was a planned publicity stunt, but hey! Any publicity is good publicity right?
In 2007, Britney Spears went through a phase let’s say… Which caused a widespread discussion. This photo was one that stood out to me a lot because I don’t think a lot of people realize how it must feel to always be filmed and followed all your life. I feel like all of that fame somehow led to her public mental breakdown. This was obviously a very crucial moment in her life and it was just interesting to follow and see her hit her lows and somehow rise above it all.
