Justin Timberlake & Janet Jackson performing at the 2004 Superbowl

Apparently Justin Timberlake & Janet Jackson Have "Made Peace"

The year was 2004 and the halftime show belonged to Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson. Unfortunately their performance didn't go as planned and ended with Timberlake "accidentally" ripping part of Jackson's shirt exposing her breast.

Fast forward 14 years and here we go again....

#JusticeForJanet started trending online once it was announced Justin Timberlake would return to perform at the Superbowl halftime show this year. According to Justin, the two have"absolutely" made peace. I think someone might want to ask Janet about that.   

Beyonce Knowles, Jay Z, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West

Has a $21,000 Baby Gift Mended a Major Power Couple Feud?

Nothing like money to mend feces right? Apparently Beyonce & Jay Z sent the West's a $21,000 custom-made, diamond Lorraine Schwartz bracelet to celebrate the birth of Kim & Kanye's newest bundle of joy. 

Jay Z and Kanye West

In case you forgot, Jay Z and Kanye were super close & then back in October of 2016, Kanye slammed both Jay Z and Beyonce during one of his shows making all sorts of claims like their kids don't play together,  a Tidal music dispute was responsible for the tension between the rappers, and the Carters didn't bother to call and check in after Kim's Paris robbery incident. Kim apparently begged Kanye to mend the relationship, shockingly he didn't listen, and then days after the crazy on stage rant he checked himself into UCLA Medical Center for a reported "mental breakdown."

But now the world seems to think with the offering of this super expensive olive branch, the power couples may be back on track. We shall see.
