The New York Times Presents Season Notes
In 2004, a culture war was brewing when the Super Bowl halftime show audience saw a white man expose a Black woman's breast for 9/16ths of a second. A national furor ensued. "If the culture wars could have a 9/11, it's February 1st, 2004," said one observer. The woman was Janet Jackson, and her career was never the same. The man was Justin Timberlake; his stardom only grew. The New York Times examines the racial and cultural currents that collided on the Super Bowl stage, and explores how the incident impacted one of the most successful pop musicians in history.
"Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson" features rare footage and interviews with several people who were at the controls that night in Houston -- including N.F.L. and MTV executives -- to reconstruct an incident that shook the country and explain how it shaped culture in the decades to follow. With new reporting by The Times, as well as insights from music industry insiders, cultural critics and members of the Jackson family, the film illuminates the extraordinary fallout, and CBS executive Les Moonves's role in it.
