Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine's tank top steals show, becomes meme

Adam Levine likened to an 'awkward stripper' during Super Bowl performance

Superbowl Viewers Note Nipple Double Standards As Adam Levine Goes Shirtless 15 Years After Janet Jackson Controversy

Adam Levine 's shirtless Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show performance didn't sit well for the people of Twitter (for a multitude of reasons, but for this article's sake we'll keep it focused on one).

Underneath: a cubist chemise of sorts, featuring multiple shades of the color brown.

Levine's top, described by The Huffington Post as being from fashion designer Dries Van Noten, had a pattern on it that big game watchers reported owning on a variety of home goods.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight days before the Super Bowl, Levine shared that he'd thought a lot about taking the opportunity of performing at the halftime show.

Amine seemed puzzled by the double standard, tweeting, "A$3 ye if janet can't show skin why can adam?" "Just asking. @SuperBowl", asked actress Rosie Perez.

At that time, the singer faced huge backlash for the nip slip.

Similarly, 'Okay. Hold up, ' Oscar-nominated actress Rosie Perez tweeted: "Are they going to go in and penalize #AdamLevine for showing his t**s like they did @JanetJackson?"

The incident dubbed "nipple gate" went down as one of the biggest controversies in Super Bowl history.

"When we accepted the responsibility to perform at the [Super Bowl halftime show], I took out my pen and just wrote", Levine said on his account.

Getting a major artist to perform in the halftime show was an arduous task for the NFL, due to the fact that multiple musicians vowed to boycott the show in solidarity with national anthem protester Colin Kaepernick. Travis Scott IS the new punk rock. These are all pretty silly rules we made up, but while we're on nipples, one fan couldn't help but notice a hidden message in Levine's many tattoos. We thank our fans for making our dreams possible.

"Janet Jackson's good reputation was tarnished for 50 percent less nipple than we saw today", another user added.

"When you look back on every single Super Bowl halftime show... it's this like insatiable urge to hate a little bit".
