Maroon 5’s Adam Levine Responds To Criticism Of Super Bowl Halftime Show

The last time nipples were seen on the popular American broadcast was the infamous wardrobe malfunction involving Janet Jackson in her onstage collaboration with Justin Timberlake in 2004.

Prinsloo capped things off with a sweet photo of a shirtless Levine embracing his wife, presumably at the end of the show, writing, "No words can describe all of this...."

As if the reviews of Maroon 5's Super Bowl 53 halftime show weren't bad enough, now social media is mocking the silky tank top sported by frontman Adam Levine.

As part of the choreography, Timberlake had attempted to tear off a section of Jackson's outfit but then accidentally removed her bra in the process. Her nipple, accessorised with a silver shield, had been exposed for less than a second but the FCC still went on to fine CBS $550,000 which led to a big legal battle.

Regardless of how you feel about football, or the Patriots and Rams in particular, it's likely you already know that the 53rd Superbowl took place on Sunday.

One Twitter user wrote: "Ok so I'm all for a shirtless Adam Levine.... but.... why are we ok with him stripping down and freaking when Janet has a nip slip?"

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight days before the Super Bowl, Levine shared that he'd thought a lot about taking the opportunity of performing at the halftime show.

Others saw the performance as a sign of progression.

Whilst some may not be avid sports fans, many will have tuned in to watch the Super Bowl Halftime Show to see what unbelievable moves were on offer from this year's act. We've come so far since Janet Jackson showed some nipple.

"YALL as soon as I saw Adam Levine's shirt I said it looked like some 70s home decorate hen facebook backed me up", one Twitter user wrote, sharing an image of a pillow being held up next to Levine on screen.
