Janet Jackson Shows Lots of Skin, but No Nipple

What Everyone Is Talking About

By Published on .

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Vibe won't show you Janet Jackson's nipple, but it's quite happy to show you the rest of the newly svelte singer/scandal maker.
There wasn't much of a wardrobe to malfunction for the 'Vibe' cover shoot of Janet Jackson.

The singer packed on the pounds after the now infamous Super Bowl halftime show where she suffered a "wardrobe malfunction" that resulted in most of America seeing her bare nipple. She shows off how she's lost the weight by appearing nearly naked on the cover of Vibe's September issue -- but is careful to cover her breasts with her arm.

And she makes it clear she wants to put Nipplegate firmly behind her. "It's just over and done with. It's old. It's the past. It's history. I'm on to something new. Everybody got their licks in -- those who wanted to -- and it's done," she tells Vibe.

CBS, however, wishes it too could be done with the incident. The FCC fined 20 CBS-owned stations $27,500 each, a total of $550,000. CBS agreed to pay the fine just last month, but said it was only doing so in order to be able to appeal the decision.
