it was clearly a choreographed movement of them both.
You're an expert choreographer yourself, I take it, to be so sure of that?
I'm no choreographer or detective. Swordsman, yes. Choreographer, no. She didn't react to his hand going there, and there's no way she didn't know it was there, but whether she expected the tear-off or not isn't clear from that. She reacted as soon as it happened, but she'd have noticed him tearing off more than he was meant to or tearing off clothing he wasn't meant to damage at all, either way, so again it's not clear.
Jackson's publicist stated the performance ending was only supposed to reveal Jackson's red lace bra, though the lace undergarment was accidentally removed along with the outer layer.
This brings up the question: how easy is it to tear the cup off a bra?
If I'd designed and made that dress, I'd hope it would stand up to being caught on something while dancing energetically, and I'd expect any tears in it to be a lot messier than that ... unless I'd included velcro for the purpose of allowing someone to pull part of it away.
For it to take the bra with it by accident seems ... almost unbelievable, frankly. Who built that thing? "Possible failure states" not mean anything to them? They never heard of testing?
Also, are nipple shields normal wear under two layers of clothing, or under "just a lace bra" or not at all, for performers on stage?
Either way, the overall reaction to a couple of seconds of motion-blurred bare breast a few pixels high was ludicrous and for all the backlash to be on her and none of it to be on him is wrong.
Oh, Willie McBride, it was all done in vain.
