Justin Timberlake is slated to return to the Super Bowl as the main performer for Pepsi's halftime show on February 4. Some fans thought that he might use the opportunity to give Janet Jackson her moment of redemption by inviting her on stage to perform with him again 14 years after the infamous wardrobe malfunction, but he recently claimed that they both “resolved the situation” in an interview with Zane Lowe.
