We can thank Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake for the term ‘wardrobe malfunction’ when Timberlake ripped off the fabric covering Jackson’s right nipple on a live broadcast of the 2005 Super Bowl.
Prior to that, we’d never used it. Now we can’t escape it.
It seems celebrities on both side of the spectrum, entertainers and athletes suffer malfunctions like clockwork.
It’s almost reason enough to watch anything live. There might just be a malfunction worth the tears of laughter you will shed when it happens.
