Tom Brady: Janet's Wardrobe Malfunction Was 'A Good Thing'

Tom Brady Says Janet Jackson’s Infamous Wardrobe Malfunction Was ‘A Good Thing For The NFL’

With Tom Brady (once again) embracing retirement, it looks like he’s going to be spending more time on his podcasting grind. However, during the latest episode of his Let’s Go! podcast, the former NFL player made a comment about Janet Jackson’s on-air wardrobe malfunction that didn’t go over too well.

Specifically, Tom proclaimed that the notorious incident—which went down at the end of Janet and Justin Timberlake’s 2004 Super Bowl halftime show performance—was “probably a good thing for the NFL.”

Tom Brady Admits He ‘Didn’t See Anything’ During The Incident

The subject came up as Tom and his co-hosts, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray, innocuously chatted about whether Brady used to watch the halftime shows while playing.

In response, Tom initially simply responded, I’d much rather not see it when I’m playing.”

He proceeded to mention the 2004 Super Bowl, which saw the New England Patriots go up against the Carolina Panthers. Tom specifically mentioned that, as he was preoccupied with the game during Janet’s wardrobe malfunction, he “didn’t see anything.”

“Even I remember when we beat Carolina…We came off the field and that was when we had the wardrobe malfunction with Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson. [The media was] asking me about that. I couldn’t even understand what they were telling me about. They said, ‘Did you see the halftime show?’ and I said, ‘I didn’t see anything.’ I was thinking about the game.”

He Says Janet’s Mishap ‘Was Just More Publicity’ For The NFL

However, Tom didn’t stop there, as he then spoke on how Janet’s wardrobe malfunction was “probably a good thing,” as it produced “more publicity” for the NFL.

“I think in the end, it was probably a good thing for the NFL because everyone got to talk about it, and it was just more publicity and more publicity for halftime shows. Is any publicity bad publicity? That’s what they say, so, who knows?”

We should note that, during a 2006 sit-down with Oprah, Janet spoke on how “all the emphasis was put on [her]” as opposed to Justin, who was the one who exposed her breast. As a result, she was “blacklisted” while Justin “went on to have a flourishing career.”

Additionally, in her 2022 documentary, she also noted, “I have moved on and it’s time for everyone to do the same.”

As a result, people simply weren’t here for Tom Brady’s commentary. Check out some reactions down below.
