Janet Jackson May Have Low Key "Invented" YouTube

Remember the infamous wardrobe malfunction Janet Jackson had at the Super Bowl in 2004? Although people are still shaking their heads about that performance and what happened when Justin Timberlake snatched her shirt and exposed her breast, that incident may have been the reason YouTube was created.

The social media platform is one of the biggest with more than 2 billion monthly active users. And that performance at the Super Bowl sparked the creators of YouTube develop a platform where video content can be loaded and viewed over and over again.

So, are we going to give credit to Janet or nah? I mean after all, if her controversial performance back in '04 didn't cause such a stir, you think we'd still have YouTube? Well, maybe so, but I still think instead of her being ripped for what happened, maybe people should recognize that she is unintentionally responsible for creating the social media beast that it is.

And if you never got a chance to see Janet's wardrobe malfunction during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, you can check it out right now ... on YouTube of course.
