Beyonce Nip Slip During Super Bowl?


By Daniel Gates



Beyonce’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday is being analyzed from every angle — and now the inevitable nip slip debate has started.

It was Janet Jackson’s infamous nipple baring at the 2004 Super Bowl that first popularized the phrase “wardrobe malfunction,” guaranteeing that any provocative routines on television’s biggest stage in the ensuing years would be highly scrutinized.

Of course, there was nothing subtle or ambiguous about Jackson’s notorious incident — and the “evidence” of a Beyonce nip slip, surfacing on sites late Sunday and early Monday, seems inconclusive at best.

While a purported, possibly altered “screen shot” appears to show an exposed nipple during Beyonce’s performance, the real-time video footage is much less definitive.

If anything, it looks like a strand of her hair has fallen into Beyonce’s cleavage, or that there are some tricks of lighting and shadows.

Do you think there was an actual slip — or is this much ado about nothing?
