It's Janet Jackson Appreciation Day Which Might Just Be Shade On The Super Bowl

*Plays Rhythm Nation: 1814 on repeat FOREVER*

Before these two amazing queens came to power, there was...


Janet Jackson is a legend, a massive talent, and a straight up national treasure.

And perhaps it's NOOO coincidence that today, on the eve of the 14th anniversary of her "Nipplegate" Superbowl performance with Justin Timberlake, Twitter has designated today "Janet Jackson Appreciation Day."

So what's that about?

So yes, fans are showing up to support Ms. Jackson-if-you're-nasty.

On this glorious #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay I want to THANK whoever started this Petty party! You are appreciated…

They're coming out in droves.

#JanetJacksonAppreciationDay trending on Justin’s Super Bowl day is the type of petty black history month magic I I…

Celeb fans are showing up, too. Like Laverne Cox.

And Jussie Smollett.

They're sharing their conspiracy theories.

And even if it IS nothing but a coincidence, it's never a bad time to recognize EVERYTHING that Janet's achieved.

So yeah, anyway, what Superbowl?
