Who knows how many centuries the fortune under the eastern slope of Mount Davidson went untapped before the Grosh brothers happened upon it.

Timberlake’s appearance felt safe and bland, with the singer tackling “Rock Your Body,” which he cut short before the line that soundtracked the infamous moment he exposed Jackson’s breast to the world. View the entire performance above.

There were a lot of rumors about Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime show, and pretty much none of them turned out to be true. Janet Jackson wasn’t there (she said as much yesterday); there was no NSYNC reunion; and there was no Prince hologram. What we got instead was, well, a Justin … More »
Justin Timberlake’s halftime show at the Super Bowl won’t have Janet Jackson or NSYNC, but it apparently will have a fucking Prince hologram.
