Janet Jackson Shoots Down Super Bowl Performance Rumors

  Janet Jackson Shoots Down Super Bowl Performance Rumors Less than 24 hours away from the Super Bowl and there have been a flurry of rumors circulating. One of the big ones was that Janet Jackson was going to perform during NFL’s biggest game of the year. Unlike the other rumors making their rounds on the Internet, Janet — Miss Jackson if you’re nasty — officially put hers to rest. The music legend took to Instagram to shoot down the rumors saying, “To put to rest any speculation or rumors as to whether I will be performing at the Super Bowl tomorrow; I will not. Thank you for your support and I do look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Ice dancer Yura Min nearly saw her Olympic debut go down in infamy on Sunday, as a wardrobe malfunction threatened to derail her routine in the team competition.

"Five seconds into the routine, my hook came undone," Min, explaining the unfortunate mishap to Jeff Seidel of the Detroit Free Press, said of a clasp on the back of her outfit.

"I was like, "Oh no!'. If that comes undone, the whole thing could just pop off," she said. "I was terrified the entire program."

Min, who skated alongside partner Alexander Gamelin, had to alter her routine on the fly; had she brought her arms together, as the original choreography had planned - multiple times, no less - her top would have dropped completely.

"This is my first Olympics, our first program and if my top were to come down, that would have been a disaster" Min said. "I was very nervous that the entire thing was going to come off."

Stopping her program to take care of the issue wasn't an option, either.

"I went from the beginning to the end. I didn't stop because you get a deduction if you stop in the middle of a program. In my head, I was thinking, 'Is it better to stop and fix it and get the deduction or keep going?'"

As she tells the Free Press, nothing will be left to chance for their marquee event: they're planning on sewing the outfit together.
