Good news for all those that didn't have TiVo during halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII: Janet Jackson's boobs are coming back.

The singer, who caused a furor when she flashed a breast at the big game in 2004, appears bare-chested in her new video for the single "So Excited." Although nipples are never clearly visible, Jackson's clothes disappear in a number of shots and she quickly reaches up to cover her bare breasts.

Be Our Mommy!

This seems to be the opposite tact taken by Elizabeth Hurley these days.

"You'd think she'd have learned from that whole [Super Bowl] debacle," said a fan. "The girl just can't help herself."

And this is a problem because?

Meanwhile, Janet is saying that she's never seen herself as sexy, while blaming older brother Michael Jackson for her issues with her body.

"My brother Michael used to tease me," Jackson tells the new issue of Giant. "We're very close, but he was very adamant about the way I looked, the way I should look. He thought my butt was too big. Maybe he wasn't completely happy with himself, so he put it on me?

I'm just guessing here, but looking back now, I know that in adolescence your body changes, and he would always tease people left and right about something. When his own body started to change … he became a lot more introverted."

And insane.

Meanwhile, yes folks, Giant is a real magazine. It was started by Kate Bosworth in regard to how much of an anorexic she is.

In case you haven't heard, Kate Bosworth really needs to eat.

For a long time, however, this Janet Jackson had the opposite problem. Michael's sister gained approximately 60 pounds awhile back, an amount that still shocks the singer.

"I could not believe how big I was, how heavy I really was," Jackson, 40, told Extra. "I would see myself in the mirror, but I wouldn't look too often. I didn't want to get used to that image."

Jackson lost the weight through healthy eating and tough workouts â€" and she's offended by speculation that she went all Ashlee Simpson on her fans; i.e. had plastic surgery.

"It does drive me crazy," she says, "because I've worked real hard … and I think it's really easy for (the tabloids) to write it off as (surgery)."

She jokes, "It isn't hurtful â€" it just pisses me off. … I want to kick some ass."

Based on how she looks now - check out this Janet Jackson picture - we're pretty sure she could do just that to anyone out there.

Jackson does admits she had some cosmetic work done when she was a teen.

"It's no secret," she reveals. "When I was 16 I changed my nose. Would I do it again? I don't know. … I've seen a lot of women that have been pulled and snatched, and it's not too cute."

Ok, but let's get to the important stuff: Will Janet now follow in the rumored footsteps of Beyonce and get married? She's been dating producer Jermaine Dupri for years.

"I don't know," she says. "If that's God's will, then it will happen."

She'd have children with Dupri, she says: "I would love to … with him. Never thought I would. God willing, it will happen."

Just FYI: Janet Jackson doesn't have a problem with dating younger men.

In fact, she prefers it, the singer tells Vibe.

Janet Jackson Live

"I came to realize that younger men had less of a problem with who I am than older men," said the 40-year-old Jackson, whose boyfriend is music producer Jermaine Dupri, 33. "With the younger guys, there was less ego. Things were less competitive. They weren't threatened by who made more and who made less."

Dupri gives Jackson's self-esteem a boost.

"When I look at Jermaine, I see myself. I feel as if I'm looking in the mirror. The connection I feel with him I have never felt with anybody else," Janet said.

The couple, who have been together for five years, recently made headlines by hinting that they're planning to get married, possibly on September 26, the date Jackson's new album, 20 Years Old, hits stores.

"Everyone's been asking me about it," Jackson said of the wedding rumors. "And if it's meant to happen, it'll happen."

One thing she tells Vibe will definitely happen, regardless, is motherhood.

"I do and I will [want to have kids]. I didn't before, but with Jermaine I do," she said.

Whether she becomes Mrs. Dupri or not, Jackson doesn't plan to change her risqué image. The singer, who recently dropped more than 60 pounds, appears on the Vibe cover wearing nothing but bikini bottoms and a shell necklace. Will she ever stop posing provocatively?

"Of course," Jackson said. "When I'm 80. That's when I'll call it quits."

For all her success, Janet is perhaps best known nowadays for her famous Super Bowl halftime show performance, during which her nipple was exposed by Justin Timberlake in a controversial "wardrobe malfunction." See if you can top that this winter, Prince. On second thought, don't).

Jackson says she has put the incident behind her.

"It's just over and done with. It's old. It's the past. It's history. I'm onto something new. Everybody got their licks in -- those who wanted to -- and it's done," she said.

Putting supposedly trashy, popular icons such as Britney Spears to shame, Janet Jackson has set a sales record for US Weekly. The recent issue with this sexy songstress on the cover is the best-selling issue of the publication ... ever!

Revealing the secrets to her weight loss, Michael and Tito's sister is hopig for a career revival when her album hits stores in September. She even stopped by the US Weekly offices in Manhattan this week to celebrate.

Reports said that Jackson, typically shy except when her wardrope malfunctions, graciously posed for pictures, greeted fans and even offered staffers encouragement on their own diets.

Janet Jackson's new studio album, 20 Years Old, will hit music stores on September 26, according to inside sources. Its first single, "Call on Me," featuring Nelly, is preparing to bombard radio outlets starting next week.

Earplugs are reportedly flying off the shelves across the U.S.

Janet on Tour

As previously reported, Jackson's latest musical effort was produced by her boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, who is president of Virgin Records' Virgin Urban division. Longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis also produced the album.

20 Years Old is an apparent reference to the 20-year anniversary of the singer's 1986 smash hit album Control. Jackson last came out with an album in 2004, immediately following her Super Bowl halftime wardrobe malfunction. Which was pretty sweet, and probably helped boost the popularity of TiVo tenfold.

That record, Damita Jo, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 pop chart and has sold 987,000 copies in the United States, many of which have not been thrown out or sold on eBay.
