Sir Paul McCartney poked fun at his unimpressive naked body during his triumphant halftime performance at yesterday's (06FEB05) SUPER BOWL - and promised not to emulate Janet Jackson's breast-flash.

Jackson sparked widespread uproar at last year's sporting event (04) when Justin Timberlake ripped away her top to reveal a pierced nipple.

The sexy singer was forced to make numerous apologies and TV network CBS had to pay $570,000 (GBP300,000) in fines.

However, the former BEATLE - who was paid $3.4 million (GBP1.8 million) for his 12-minute performance - assured fans they wouldn't be catching a glimpse of his nude form.

He said, "I don't have a wardrobe to malfunction. I can safely tell you I won't strip because you don't want to see me naked."

Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys and Gretchen Wilson all performed at the Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida, before the game between the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS and PHILADELPHIA EAGLES kicked off.
