The annual music festival, Global Citizen Festival, took place this Saturday in New York.
The mission of the festival is to end extreme poverty. Janet Jackson performed as did Janelle Monae, The Weeknd, Cardi B, John Legend and Shawn Mendes.

At the end of her performance, Janet Jackson said, I know about bullying. I know about verbal abuse. I know about physical abuse. I know about abuse of authority. I’m sick, I’m repulsed, I’m infuriated by the double standards that continue to treat women as second-class citizens.

Some felt that when she talked about the “double standards” that she was referring to her Super Bowl situation with Justin Timberlake. Justin walked away from the situation while she was punished for it.
