The 10-times Grammy winner last performed at the Super Bowl back in 2004 when he infamously ripped off part of Janet Jackson’s garment during their halftime show in Houston and briefly bared her breast. The incident coined the phrase “wardrobe malfunction”.
Just in case you forgot :
The Super Bowl is the most-watched event on US television, drawing more than 100 million viewers. Previous halftime headliners include Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Madonna.
It’s gonna be a great show !
