Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins number 10. The word origin today
is wardrobe malfunction. All right. Let's take a look at the note
here. A wardrobe malfunction is an occurrence when someone's clothes slips,
falls, rips, etc. exposing someone's private parts or causing indecent
exposure. We see this happen to celebrities very often to be honest the
far majority of time I think it's usually female celebrities is where it
happens most of the time. All right. Let's continue. The origin of the term occurred
in Super Bowl 38. The term was actually coined by the singer Justin Timberlake.
So he created it. He came up with this term and it makes you wonder did he just
think of it then or was this planned before time. I don't know, but anyway he coined
it. He was the first one to say this. To, to try to explain what happened after
there was backlash from the incident. While singing the line \"Gonna have you
naked by the end of this song, \" Justin Timberlake pulled at Janet Jackson's
bustier which they claimed was supposed to leave her red lace bra on but of
course one of her breasts was exposed. Okay. So now remember this during the Super
Bowl, so the reason there was backlash was because this is supposed to be a family
event. So it's supposed to be a lot of young kids there and if this really was
planned a lot of people think that this was really not suitable at a family
event. So that's why there was a lot of backlash to this and that's why they
came out with this term try to explain it like her, her breast was not supposed
to be exposed. We do find out that even though, it was exposed and you could see
the whole breast the very, very tip where the nipple is supposedly there was a
nipple guard So there was a little something just very covering the nipple.
Some people may question that too because do they normally wear that ? Is
that natural ? It seems like something that would you'd probably only put on
unless you were planning this event. So that's why sometimes people question
whether this was truly really an accident and truly really a wardrobe
malfunction. If some people wonder was the first wardrobe, the first wardrobe
malfunction the term was used for, was it really a wardrobe malfunction or was it
actually planned ? Or was it really more like a publicity stunt ? That's a good question,
All right. But anyway, let's go on. So and also it's you know with the song \" Gonna
have you naked by the end of this song. \" I don't know you, you it does make you
wonder whether this was truly just really an accident or was it a publicity
stunt. But anyway the most important part here
is this is where the term came from. So once they started using the term for
this one, then in in the future when their other wardrobe malfunctions
whether they were real or planned I don't know.The term has often been used
for that. So let's continue, All right. So thus the term wardrobe
malfunction was born. It means it was created. That was the first time and has been
used countless amounts of times ever since. Yeah. It's kind of surprising
exactly how many wardrobe malfunctions there are. So does it does it make you
wonder I mean have they just increased a lot in recent years or are they just
reporting about them more than they used to. I don't know I guess they're both
possible or some of them natural I would think probably at least some of them are
natural. Are some of them staged ? That's the question. Who knows ? Maybe yes. maybe
no. Okay let's continue. There have been so many wardrobe malfunctions. We do have
some other ways of calling them, such as a nip slip.
So remember nip is short for nipple, so especially if it's a female and somehow
her nipple got exposed that they may jokingly refer to it as a nip slip like
the nipple slipped out of the dress or whatever the top that
the woman was wearing. Ass slip, I guess you know, maybe your pants falls down for
some reason. It could be an ass slip etc . Let's continue here. Some famous stars who have
fallen victim to wardrobe malfunctions include Mariah Carey, Nicki
Minaj , Heidi Klum, Ann Hathaway , Jennifer Hudson, Katy Perry etc. and really there's
many, many more you could you could look up this. They're too many too,
many to count. Anyway, let me know what you think ? You
can leave it in the comments whether you think some of these are, do you think
some of them are actually staged or do you think that they're all really
natural as they are reported ? Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank
you for your time. Bye-bye.
