“A few weeks ago, I displayed a strong lapse in judgement—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my costar,” wrote the singer in his apology. “I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior… I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be.”

But instead of being moved, Midler wondered aloud why Instead, Bette wondered when Timberlake didn’t show the same remorse towards “Janet Jackson’s boob” back in 2004 after he exposed it on stage during the conclusion of their Super Bowl XXXVIII Halftime show.
