At home Scribe took out Album Of The Year for 'The Crusader' and the biggest selling single….was…wait for it… Ben Lummis!

There was the infamous wardrobe malfunction between Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake during half time of the Super Bowl, Janet claimed she never meant to flash her nipple to a global audience of over a billion people.
