Janet Jackson is to host a pre-Super Bowl party a year after her infamous performance at the sporting event caused uproar.

She has been invited to a party thrown by millionaire lawyer Willie Gary to support education scholarships.

The NFL-sanctioned event is being sponsored by the Black Family Network, of which Mr Gary is chairman.

The party, which is expected to attract a celebrity crowd, is also open to the public, with tickets at $250 (132).

Jackson is expected to host the event along with her partner, music producer Jermaine Dupree, in Florida on 5 February, the evening before the big game.

This year's Super Bowl half-time entertainment will be provided by Sir Paul McCartney, who is considered less of a risk following last year's memorable show.

The "wardrobe malfunction" which saw Jackson expose her breast landed US network CBS with a $550,000 (293,264) fine from the Federal Communications Commission.

About 542,000 complaints were received following the broadcast. The Super Bowl is the US' most watch television event of the year, with advertising space going for more than $1m.
