Jackson’s career never really recovered after the incident in 2004 —now known as “Nipplegate”— where Justin Timberlake during their performance ripped off a part of her outfit causing her right br*ast to spill out of the corset in front of over 140 million viewers.

The documentary, titled Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson” is being produced by FX and Hulu, the makers of “Framing Britney Spears” and its follow-up “Controlling Britney Spears”

According to Deadline: “The doc will examine the racial and cultural currents that collided on the Super Bowl stage, and explores how the incident impacted one of the most successful pop musicians in history.”

“It will feature rare footage and interviews with several people who were at the controls that night in Houston, including NFL and MTV executives, to reconstruct an incident that shook the country and explain how it shaped culture in the decades to follow,” Deadline also reports

While the “Cry Me A River” singer’s career continued to flourish, Jackson who was forced to apologise suffered a heavy setback due to his own mistake.

Many accused Justin Timberlake of not doing much to salvage Jackson’s career, an accusation he addressed earlier this year in an apology.

“I have not been perfect in navigating all of this throughout my career,” part of his statement read. “I know this apology is a first step and doesn’t absolve the past, i want to take accountability for my missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports.”

“Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson” will broadcast on FX and Hulu on 19 November 2021.
