Justin Timberlake has the time… halftime. The singer confirmed recent rumors that he will be performing during the Super Bowl LII halftime show in February. It will be the first time he's performed at the big game since 2004, when he exposed Janet Jackson's breast on live TV. Both Justin and Pepsi, the sponsor of the halftime show, tweeted the news on Oct. 22. Several people took to Twitter afterward to voice their displeasure that Justin has been forgiven by the NFL, but perhaps Janet hasn't. The hashtag #JusticeForJanet began trending after JT's announcement, with most people saying Justin still owes Janet an apology. There have been rumors for years that the NFL has "banned" Janet, but several reports said that's not true. Many are hoping Justin will bring Janet out on the halftime stage in February.

While most agreed that the message was in jest, many saw a double standard. "If a man made this joke, Ellen would lead the cries of 'SEXIST PIG!'" Piers Morgan said. Others stated similar things and some began calling her "Ellen Weinstein," a reference to the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal that has shaken Hollywood to its core in recent weeks.

Breast cancer battle
Model Jill Goodacre has revealed her secret battle with breast cancer. Harry Connick Jr.'s wife said she went in for a routing mammogram in October 2012. "They said, 'Okay, looks good. Since you have dense breasts, just go across the hall for your sonogram,'" she recalled of that meeting, telling People magazine. However, something was found during the sonogram. Turns out, she had Stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma and would need to immediately undergo a lumpectomy, a second surgery and radiation. She didn't have to undergo chemotherapy. After the treatment, she had to take a medication, Tamoxifen, that made the former Victoria's Secret model gain weight. "I've always been a pretty fit person, and so to be just rounder and heavier and not to really be able to do much about it — that's been hard," she said. "It's taken a lot out of my self-confidence." Why she is she only now revealing the news publicly? "It wasn't like we were superstitious, like if we said something about being in the clear we'd somehow jinx it," she said. "But we wanted to be well on the other side of things before we told everybody. The doctors all say that after the five-year mark, things look optimistic, so we're starting to feel pretty good."
