Look at the cover of Janet Jackson's new album, "janet." (Virgin 87825, arriving in stores Tuesday), and what you'll see seems at first to be a simple statement of identification. There's a head shot of the singer, holding her hands atop her head and staring straight into the camera with the barest hint of a smile. Add in the title, and what the front of the album appears to say is, "This is Janet. Period."Flip the jewel box over, though, and you get a different perspective on the star. What this side shows is her hips, snug in a well-worn pair of jeans, with a long key-chain slung to one side and the fly open just enough to exhibit the shapely musculature of her middle.

The corporate mea culpas from CBS, MTV and Viacom Inc. took up more time than their infamous and seemingly eternal halftime show at the Super Bowl last week. That, of course, was when, for a fleeting moment, one of singer Janet Jackson's breasts was exposed. This prompted a torrent of protests ranging from official Washington to shrill talk-show hosts to viewers to, of course, an indignant National Football League, even though it has never tired of trying to make the Big Game bigger than life itself.
