Washington (ANI): Three years after Justin Timberlake pulled down Janet Jackson"s top to flash her breast at the 2004 Super Bowl, the incident dubbed 'Nipplegate" has topped a poll of the '25 Biggest Celebrity Scandals since 1982". According to Entertainment Weekly magazine which compiled the list, the incident gave enough ammunition to people already forming the opinion that 'Hollywood was polluting kids" minds". “With nearly 90 million people watching, many of them children, the incident became a flash point for family-values groups who had long argued that Hollywood was polluting kids' minds — and now they had proof," the mag states.

Coming in close on Timberlake and Jackson"s heels was Mel Gibson with his alcoholic anti-Semitic rant in July 2006. Gibson took second place on the list. Third place went to Sinead O'Connor who capped her 1992 SNL appearance by ripping a photo of the Pope live on TV. Hugh Grant getting caught by cops while indulging in ''lewd conduct'' with prostitute Divine Brown back in 1995 judged to be the fourth most scandalous event of the past 25 years. Rounding off the top five was the incident where Michael Jackson dangled his son Prince Michael from a fourth-floor balcony while visiting Berlin in November 2002.
