WASHINGTON (AP) -- The head of the Federal Communications Commission isn't satisfied by the apologies from Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, CBS and others after Jackson's breast was exposed during the Super Bowl halftime show.

Michael Powell tells NBC he still wants an investigation and it could lead to fines totaling millions of dollars.

He suggested that any probe would be a "little broader" than just the Jackson-Timberlake finale.

Powell added, "I personally was offended by the entire production."

"The decision to have a costume reveal at the end of my halftime show performance was made after final rehearsals," Jackson said in a statement released Monday, February 2nd. "MTV was completely unaware of it. It was not my intention that it go as far as it did. I apologize to anyone offended, including the audience, MTV, CBS and the NFL."

Jackson's spokeswoman says a red lace garment was supposed to remain when Justin Timberlake tore off the outer covering.
