Despite denials and apologies, music fans believe Janet Jackson planned to bare her breast at the finale of the now infamous Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show, according to a Billboard.com poll.
Of 8,307 voters, 65% say they considered the revealing incident a publicity stunt from the moment it happened.
A 35% minority believes that while something was planned, Jackson’s resulting exposure at the hands of Justin Timberlake was an accident.
Both performers have apologized for the controversial “wardrobe malfunction,” as has halftime show producer MTV and broadcaster CBS. The Federal Communications Commission has promised an investigation.
