JANET JACKSON: Tour Conflicts With Super Bowl
Janet Jackson won't likely join Justin Timberlake for the Super Bowl halftime show.
A source claims that Janet’s State of the World Tour will take her out of the country during Super Bowl weekend on February 4th, 2018.
This insider told E! News, (quote) “She is happy to hear J.T. is performing and thinks he'll be great -- as always! She wishes him a great performance. They had some great memories.”
Of course, their relationship soured following the 2004 Nipplegate controversy. Janet took all the criticism for exposing a breast during the Super Bowl halftime show. The so-called “wardrobe malfunction” required Justin to yank on her costume. Somehow, he never got blamed for being the co-conspirator.
HARVEY WEINSTEIN: Matt Damon and George Clooney Talk About the Scandal
Matt Damon and George Clooney are spilling the beans on Harvey Weinstein.
The two stars talked about the scandal with GMA's Michael Strahan during their press tour for the upcoming film Suburbicon.
Matt said he never saw Harvey assault anyone, but knew about Gwyneth Paltrow's incident through Ben Affleck, who dated the actress. "You had to spend about five minutes with him to know that he was a bully," Matt said. "But this level of criminal sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on." He added, "You had to spend about five minutes with him to know that he was a bully, he was intimidating — that was his legend. When people say everybody knew, yeah I knew he was an [a-hole]. He was proud of that."
George said, "Harvey would talk to me about women that he'd had affairs with. I didn't necessarily believe him quite honestly, because to believe him would be to believe the worst of some actresses who were friends of mine."
George added it was "beyond infuriating" that Harvey was silencing women, and revealed that wife Amal Clooney has also been the victim of sexual harassment. (Hollywood Reporter)
