Happy B-Day to Damita Jo! I'm gonna listen to the janet. album when I get home.
"Why is Taylor Swift regarded as such a good role model anyway? I wouldn't want any daughter/niece of mine to grow into a girl-bashing, *****-shaming, boy-crazy, eternally-virginal damsel in distress who seems to perennially look at the world through the prism of a victim. That's not empowering. That's not even healthy." - U4EA
She posted a pic of herself and Wissam today, the first one of them together in MONTHS
Her TGJ interview (she didn't say anything we don't already know):
Hi, Janet! Everyone’s wondering, as far as music goes can we expect anything new anytime soon?
Yeah! It’s in the beginning stages. I’ve been putting it together. I’ve been working on that and directing. And also I just did a deal with Lionsgate, so I’ve been producing, putting all that together.
What kind of movies are you looking to make in the future as a producer or as an actress?
Ones that have a lot of energy. I love action films, I love Sci-Fi. I love all that stuff.
I didn’t expect you to say sci-fi!
Right, I’m not a geek! I was a huge fan of the Marvel Comics. I used to collect the flash cards when I was younger, let’s put it like that.
Who’s your favorite superhero?
Oh my gosh, I’ve had a few. I love Knight, ugh, I can’t think now! I love Storm from “X-Men”. There are a few.
Who are you wearing tonight? Your jacket is fantastic.
You’ve lost a lot of weight with the help of NutriSystem, but everyone wants to know, what is your favorite healthy food to indulge on and favorite cheat food?
Let me start by saying that NutriSystem really has everything, they really do. The one thing they don’t have that I absolutely love is caramel apples. So I’ll go to Dylan’s Candy Bar and get caramel apples there.
What are your plans for summer?
Well, I’ll be working! Basically what I’m doing now; starting the process of getting the songs, of getting everything together for the album.
Do you have a deadline for when you want to have it completed?
No (big smile), I don’t. Yea, and I’m glad I don’t, no pressure.
What is your process for recording an album? Where does it all start?
It really starts with my life, and where I am in my life at that moment. And that’s the beginning of the energy, the beginning of the process. I need to make sure I start feeling that thing when I sit and write. That’s where true love begins.
Are there any producers you’ve worked with in the past that you plan on bringing back for your next album?
(Big smile)You mean like Jimmy J (Jimmy Jam)?
Anyone! Whoever you want to talk about.
We talked about it a little bit. We’ll just have to wait and see, I don’t know. But we’re still very good friends. We stay in touch all the time. Always texting each other telling each other how much we really love one another. And um, that’s really it!
Are there any artists today who you are really wowed by?
I think Adele’s done an incredible job- a wonderful job. And you know who I love to watch? Bruno Mars. I think he’s absolutely wonderful. He’s very talented and I love how he’s kind of low-key about it. It’s nice.
What’s something about Janet Jackson that we don’t already know?
(Big smile) There’s a lot but I just don’t want to tell you! That’s the thing. If you read True You you’ll find out things about me that you didn’t know. And it’s the truth, you will. But um, no, I don’t think I wanna tell you about that stuff! I’ll save it for the autobiography…
What do you want your legacy to be?
Someone who really wanted to try and make the world smile through their music, and have a good time.
