Group asks Justin Timberlake to keep halftime show 'safe'

Justin Timberlake is headlining the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, and he's pumped.

The New England Patriots will be playing the Philadelphia Eagles at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This year, Justin Timberlake will be making history as the first performer to appear at the half-time show three times. The incident was dubbed a wardrobe malfunction, and all parties involved apologized, but the National Football League subsequently banned MTV from producing another halftime show, while CBS was fined $550,000 by the FCC.

Although the game is being played indoors, the number of times the outdoor temperature will be mentioned during NBC's telecast is also up for betting.

However, The Parents Television Council felt it necessary to remind Timberlake one more time that there will be children watching this weekend, so to keep things as PG as possible. He recently discussed the incident with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio.

"I had my wires crossed and it's just something that you have to look back on and go like, OK, well you know, you can't change what's happened, but you can move forward and learn from it". Timberlake has nobody to blame but himself and ex-dance partner Janet Jackson for that.

And he doesn't. Instead, Timberlake reunites with longtime collaborators The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams" production duo with Chad Hugo), Danja and Timbaland, the brilliant minds behind much of the "NSync juggernaut's early solo material. "I don't think it's my job to do that, because you value the relationships that you do have with people".
