When he wasn't accepting Grammy Awards, Justin Timberlake was apologizing for his role in Janet Jackson's breast-baring Super Bowl halftime performance.
Timberlake, who apologized Sunday night as he accepted the Grammy for best pop male vocal performance, had earlier apologized to 'N Sync bandmate JC Chasez.
"He called me the other day and he just said, `Man, I'm sorry. I never in a million years thought that something I did onstage would ever have affected you,"' Chasez said before the Grammy Awards show.
After Timberlake tore off a piece of Jackson's top, exposing her right breast during the Super Bowl halftime show, the National Football League cut a halftime production number by Chasez planned for Sunday's Pro Bowl in Honolulu because Chasez's song contained the words "horny" and "naughty."
"I don't think that it's his fault that I'm not performing," Chasez said. "I think it's just some people overreacting a bit." ___
And the Grammy for the shortest acceptance speech by a Grammy winner goes to ...
OutKast's Andre 3000, accepting the award Sunday for best rap album, stepped to the microphone, said simply, "Thank you," then hustled back to his seat in the audience.
Dave Navarro hit the green carpet at the Grammys with wife, Carmen Electra, and a lit cigarette in tow.
But not to worry, the Jane's Addiction guitarist, who married the former "Baywatch" actress in November, had no intention of getting busted for smoking inside the Staples Center during the Grammy show. "Frankly, we're going to go home and watch it on TiVo. We're just mingling about here," he said.
Meanwhile, Navarro couldn't resist pointing out the difference between the couple's MTV show, "'Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen & Dave," and the network's other reality show featuring newlyweds Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica." "Carmen is 10 times more beautiful than Jessica and Nick is 10 times more handsome than me, so we're doing a twist on things," he said.
