Joe Jackson hints at Janet Jackson Super Bowl ‘comeback’

'Janet is ready to comeback and I think it will happen,' says the Jackson family patriarch

The jury is still out on whether or not Janet Jackson will join Justin Timberlake onstage at the upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show, but her father, Joe Jackson, is offering up his two cents.

“Janet is ready to comeback and I think it will happen. The way I brought her up she was made for comebacks and this is no different,” he told New York Daily News.

Sounds like he may be privy to some inside information.

“Janet always wanted to know she was not banned after what happened before. We know conversations have taken place secretly, but no one is daring to say too much publicly until contracts are signed.”

He also suggested that its in the NFL’s best interest to have his daughter back after her controversial turn in 2001.

“We must not forget this show is about ratings. No one publicly is going to discuss that, but the world and media know that the NFL are in a sticky place over fans reactions to their players taking the knee and protesting the national anthem,” he said.

“The audience are expecting a show and I feel that they are expecting to see her too. It is what they want.”
