The most famous wardrobe malfunction in the history of fashion made the lyrics 'Gonna have you naked by the end of this song' a scandalous reality for pop stars Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake in a shocking final act at the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show. When Timberlake yanked a panel off of Jackson's top, it revealed her bare breast to billions of viewers across the globe. The image flashed across screens for less than a second before CBS changed shots. More than half a million Americans filed complaints to the Federal Communications Commission, leading to record fines against CBS and a crackdown on TV indecency.
