Pop star Janet Jackson's explanation for exposing her breast at 2004 SuperBowl, that it was a "wardrobe malfunction", has entered an English dictionary.

Contactmusic.com reports that Jackson, who was performing during the SuperBowl's half-time show, was embarrassed when her stage partner Justin Timberlake ripped open her bodice, revealing a breast. It was seen by more than 90 million people and the term "wardrobe malfunction" was coined.

The phrase will now feature in the latest Chambers English Dictionary.
