14 YEARS AFTER the world lost its collective mind over a nipple, Justin Timberlake is set to return to the Super Bowl half-time show.

The 10-time Grammy winner will take centre-stage at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, a decade and a half after he was controversially involved in a “wardrobe malfunction” with Janet Jackson.

The incident, which involved Timberlake exposing Janet Jackson’s nipple during their half-time performance at Super Bowl XXXVIII, prompted a wave of controversy with the FCC introducing a crackdown on “indecent material” on TV in its wake.

A Tennessee based banker even launched a class action law suit against the pair, which she later dropped.

However, it appears that all is now forgiven for Timberlake as reports emerged today that the 36-year old is finalising a deal for next year’s show.

Last week, Jay-Z ruled himself out of the gig.
