Janet said they both laughed at the time but the taunts left a lasting impact on her.

She discusses her weight issues in the 2-part docu-series, "Janet," which airs January 28 and 29 on A&E and Lifetime.

The 55-year-old pop singer opened up about allegations of child sex abuse made against her brother, saying she was shocked and devastated.

Janet also talks about her marriages and relationships with James DeBarge, Rene Elizondo Jr., Jermaine Dupri and Wissam Al Mana, the father of her 5-year-old son, Eissa.

Janet Jackson's infamous Super Bowl "Nipplegate" scandal is getting its own documentary.

Janet was blacklisted in Hollywood following her dramatic 2004 Super Bowl halftime wardrobe malfunction when singer Justin Timberlake ripped off part of Janet's costume to expose her breast.

The embarrassing moment, which was witnessed by 100 million viewers at home, will be revisited in a new documentary series later this month.

FX and Hulu bosses will feature Nipplegate in its factual series, The New York Times Presents.

Network heads previously partnered with Times editors on two hit series earlier this year - Framing Britney Spears and Controlling Britney Spears.

The documentary, titled Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson will debut on November 19.

The new series will include footage of the scandalous moment, as well as new interviews with many of the behind-the-scenes players.

Conspiracy theories abounded about the big reveal, with some experts suggesting the stunt was orchestrated because - just before the big reveal - Justin sang, "I'll get you naked by the end of this song."

And Janet's then-boyfriend Jermaine Dupri promised a big surprise during the halftime show.

Producers will also detail the effect the shocking X-rated moment had on the careers of both Jackson and Timberlake, who initially distanced himself from the controversy. But he has since apologized for his role in the scandal.

Criticized online for the way he has treated the women in his life following the release of the Framing Britney Spears documentary, Justin said.

"I've seen the messages, tags, comments and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the time in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism."

Justin added:

"I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed. I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from."

If you missed Colin Kaepernick's new Netflix series, "Colin in Black and White," you didn't miss much. The series is getting terrible reviews.

Sports journalist and culture critic Jason Whitlock called the series "absolutely embarrassing."

How bad is it? One critic said Kaepernick "Continues to show time and time again that he is one of the biggest scumbags in all of the world."

Netflix

The series is about Kaepernick coming of age from a mixed race baby adopted by white parents to a failed NFL quarterback. Actor Jaden Michael plays young Colin.

The series was developed by Kaepernick, co-creator Ava DuVernay, and showrunner Michael Starrbury.

They attempt to portray Kaepernick as a modern day civil rights hero, but they fail miserably because he can't get out of the way of his own gigantic ego.

Kaepernick is still bitter that no NFL team wants to sign him to a contract.

In one episode, Kaepernick compared the NFL combine to the slave trade (yes, he went there).

"What they don't want you to understand is what's being established is a power dynamic," he said.

"Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respected. No dignity left intact."

Then a group of players walk off the field and line up near an auction platform.

A bit overly dramatic? Yes, but we're talking about Colin Kaepernick. This series exposes Kaeprnick for who he really is: an unrepentant narcissist.

Wendy Williams claims she was date raped by 1980s singer Sherrick. Wendy made the shocking revelation while promoting her upcoming Lifetime biopic, "Wendy Williams: The Movie."

Wendy, 56, says the effeminate singer "mesmerized" her with his "twinkling eyes" during an interview in 1988.

"His name was Sherrick [and] he was a one-hit wonder, remember the song. It was called 'Just Call' and it was number one on the R&B charts and an overnight sensation," she told The NY Daily News.

"He was in D.C. I was a cute radio DJ. He'd asked me did I want to accompany him to his album release celebration in D.C. and I said 'yes.' I got off the air and went back to his hotel room with him," said Williams.

"He said he wanted to shower and freshen up and introduced cocaine to the scene," she added. "I was already familiar with cocaine so I was continuing to party while he was in the shower. And I was sitting on the bed minding my own business."

The harrowing rape scene is played out in graphic detail in the biopic, starring Ciara Peyton as Wendy, and actor Nykeem Provo portraying the rapist.

Wendy fought back tears as she recalled the incident.

"I left after that and went home and scrubbed my skin off, cried and that was that," the Asbury Park, N.J., native recalled. "I never told anybody. I just handled it and that's it."

Sherrick is best known for his single "Just Call," which peaked in the Top 10 on the Billboard R&B singles chart.

Sherrick, real name F. Lamotte Smith, was a former member of Motown R&B group Kagny. His biggest claim to fame was being featured on the soundtrack to "The Last Dragon."

Sherrick, who was an alcoholic and drug abuser, died in 1999 of unknown causes.

Marc Lamont Hill's ex dream hampton is set to direct a series about the Tulsa Race Massacre, an act of racial violence that occurred nearly 100 years ago.

The 49-year-old writer/filmmaker who stylizes her name in all lower caps, says the time is right for such a compelling series about race relations in America.

Hampton, pictured below with activist Tarana Burke, says she's inspired by the persistence of Black people from Tulsa.

"Black people from Tulsa have refused to let the Greenwood District Massacre be erased from history. I'm so inspired by their persistence to lift up the stories of what North Tulsa was before the massacre," hampton said in a statement on Monday about the burning of Tulsa's Greenwood District, dubbed "Black Wall Street" for its collection of successful African American-owned businesses.

Over 300 Americans were killed and thousands more were displaced from their homes as the Greenwood District was torched by white supremacists.

"As the centennial approaches they are still searching for a mass grave they believe contains the bodies of the victims of the Black Wall Street Massacre, and they are still demanding reparations. I'm inspired to learn this history from them, and to tell their ongoing story," said hampton.

The award-winning filmmaker was once entangled in a love triangle with another woman for Marc Lamont Hill's affections.

Their squabble over a cheating man got so heated that the other woman emailed your auntie to put hampton on blast.

When your auntie did the responsible thing and reached out to hampton for her side of the story, she pleaded with me not to publish the woman's email because her minor daughter (at the time) was old enough to read the blogs.

Kevin Hart's long-suffering wife Eniko Parrish-Hart breaks down in a new trailer for his 6-part docu-series called "Don't F**k This Up!".

In the trailer, Eniko tries to shed a tear (no real tears fall) as she explains how her husband betrayed her while she was pregnant with their son in 2017.

"You publicly humiliated me," says Eniko, addressing him directly. "I just kept saying, 'How the f--k did you let that happen?'"

If you recall, Hart, 40, was filmed in a hotel room with model Montia Sabbag while on a business trip to Las Vegas in 2017.

If you believe Montia, the whole thing was a set up by Kevin and his co-conspirator, J.T. Jackson, to boost publicity for Kev's project at the time.

Montia sued Kevin for $60 million, claiming Kevin and J.T. hid a camera to film their rendezvous for their financial benefit.

Kevin didn't actually cheat on his wife if it was just a publicity stunt. But Kevin has a 6-part Netflix documentary that he needs to promote.

Eniko never got over the public humiliation of Kevin's alleged affair. Her body language tells the true story in every photo they take together.

But it was her tone of voice in a 911 phone call the night of Kevin's accident that reveals her underlying rage towards Kevin.

Who can forget Eniko telling the 911 dispatcher to "come get him" as Kevin lay unconscious, his back broken in three places. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
 

Linda Fairstein, the former New York prosecutor who racially profiled the so-called Central Park Five, says director Ava DuVernay concocted a "basket of lies" about her in the new Netflix Series "When They See Us."
