Despite the crowd looking like they were watching a funeral sermon, Janet Jackson‘s performance at this weekend’s Global Citizen Festival was nothing short of amazing. She performed hit after hit after hit (see setlist below.) MSNBC won’t be forgiven for rudely interrupting her one hour performance with two commercials. Ugh. Janet uses the platform to call for better treatment of women and condemns the double standards she’s faced in her career. In 2004, Justin Timberlake exposed her nipple during their joint Super Bowl halftime performance. While Timberlake got to walk away unscathed, Janet’s career encountered an epic blacklisting.
