Apology Rejected

Fox News is reporting that Janet Jackson turned down an offer to appear on the Grammys provided she apologize on the air for her nude boob. Roger Friedman (who's so far ahead of the pack on Jackson news it's mindblowing) says brother Michael played a key role in her decision. "What do people want from this woman? Blood?" he writes. Actually, I think it's a pound of flesh. No, wait, that's what got her into trouble in the first place.

Justin Timberlake is going to take his lumps on the air and apologize, which is the least he can do given the pass he's gotten from the brunt of the backlash. That dorfy interview he did with KCBS last Wednesday was anything but contrite. I wish at least half of the outrage directed at Janet could be deflected to her co-conspirator.
