What should we do about bare breast?
Janet Jacksons publicity stunt during the Super Bowl has had its desired effect: People are talking about her again. Outrageous conduct by people in the entertainment industry is a tried and true method of attracting attention.
My advice to people who are offended by her conduct, is to ignore it. You give the act more credence than it deserves. Its just a 5-second flash of a mostly bare womans breast. Its not the apocalypse. So just relax.
My advice to the big egos in the entertainment industry (as if they care or listen) is that mainstream America doesnt really think that this was appropriate on TV during a Super Bowl. Publicity stunts should be seen for what they are, and laughed at, then ignored. People speak volumes with their wallets.
Frankly, the most insulting part about the whole thing was the performers reactions: It was an accident, or a wardrobe malfunction ... Hollywood thinks were stupid. Americans shouldnt stand for that crap. Turn them off and tune them out.
