    Cute YT clip of Janet growing up

    37 isn’t her either 🤦‍♀️
  3. For more than four decades, Janet Jackson has captivated audiences with her catchy vocals, epic dance moves, and megawatt smile. Even after all this time, her stage presence is downright unbeatable — thanks, largely in part, to her one-of-a-kind concert wardrobes. Though the 52-year-old singer established herself as a style icon in her own right long ago, we constantly find ourselves impressed by her bold fashion choices — both on stage and off. For InStyle’s October issue, we asked our cover star to dish on all of her style staples, including her footwear faves, signature sunglasses, and the piece of jewelry she’s coveting right now (there’s a sweet story behind it). And we didn’t stop at her fashion essentials. Jackson spilled on all of her current favorites across the board, from the beauty products and travel items she swears by and her most “Escapade”-worthy getaway spots to the book she reads to her 1-year-old son on repeat. Scroll down for 17 of her top picks, and for more stories like this, pick up the October issue of InStyle, available on newsstands, on Amazon, and for digital download Sept. 14. Signature Shades "Tom Ford sunglasses." Dressing Room Must-Have "Diptyque Tubéreuse candle." Wardrobe Staples "Rick Owens everything!" Go-to Snack "SkinnyPop popcorn." Jewelry Obsession “The Tiffany & Co. Loving Heart bracelet my dancer Dominique and her mother gave me.” Lip Service "Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm." Top Travel Spot "Tokyo. Or any beautiful island." Hottest Heels "Christian Louboutin, Azzedine Alaia, and Rick Owens." Ideal Meal "Tiger prawns at Kai Mayfair in London." Mane Must-Have "Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner." Story Time “My son’s favorite at the moment, Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star.” Cool Carryall "My Yohji Yamamoto backpack." Dream Hotel "Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills." Eyebrow MVP "Maybelline." Style Icons "Katherine Hepburn and Lana Turner." Travel Necessities "Honest Hand Sanitizer in Grapefruit Grove and my Ralph Lauren cashmere travel blanket." Most admired designer "My friend, Alexander Wang."
  4. Don’t forget the hand sanitizer, it’s under $3! I do really want her bracelet in silver tho. Hers is gold.

    Mariah’s “GTFO”!!!

    I used to be the biggest Mariah fan but everything after the Rainbow album is just a bit meh for me
  9. US-based Nigerian Drummer Tony Ade, his AfroDrum Ensemble and Music Star, Janet Jackson A US-based musician, Tony Ade, says that his featuring in Janet Jackson’s latest music video titled: “Made for Now’’ was because of his ability to play several instruments. Ade told the NAN-TV that he learned to play instruments such as “Omele’’, “Bata’’, “Omele’’ chord, “Sakara’’, and “ Iya-Ilu’. He said that his multi-talented knowledge of playing several musical instruments had been opening doors of opportunities for him. He said that Janet Jackson, after observing originality in his work, invited him to perform in her 2018 music video. The percussionist then advised other African artistes to always be original in their works, saying that would stand them out in the entertainment industry. He said that any individual in the creative world would be easily noticed by global brands when he or she ended up being original. “There is so much originality in our African culture that cannot be copied by others,” he said. Janet Jackson is one of the siblings of the late renowned music legendary Michael Jackson. He described the experience of featuring in the video as one of the high points of his career. Ade said, “I got a call from her camp, telling me that they would want me to be a part of Janet’s new music video. “So, I do not even think that beating cultural drums will ever bring me in contact with someone as iconic as Janet Jackson. God works in mysterious ways. “She asked me to come up with a chant, and that is where: `Asiko ope, Janet ti de’ came from.’’ According to him, no matter how much foreigners try to copy and imitate the African sounds, they can never be as perfect as Africans. “There is a limit to what can be copied from the rich African culture and one of those things that cannot be fully copied is our music.” Ade said that the art sector is called the creative industry for a reason. He said that whether one is a musician, a dancer, an actor, or a painter, one needs to be original instead of copying someone else. He said that once artistes could maintain stability by being original, they would gain the attention of those who needed to see them. “There is room for creativity, especially for Nigerians, because we are of the African descent and have a very rich and colourful culture. He also advised every artiste to always be organised while trying to reach the highest level of professionalism in the sector. “Generally speaking, there is not one umbrella term that can be used to describe the highest level of professionalism. “You just have to learn to do things in an orderly manner and have a good character. “Many people think it is just about your talent that takes you to places but it is actually your character while your talent comes second,” he said. He added that well established organisations, companies and artistes in high places where everyone prays to get to are professionals, structured and organised. “If they do not see some seriousness in you, they will not consider you for any recognition. “Nonetheless, having mentors is a great solution. “You need people you can look up to, people who will always give you guidance and the advice you need because you may not be able to do most things on your own,” Ade said.

  10. I believe that style of hair originates from the Zulu tribes in Southern Africa
  11. Really? I wouldn’t. Not many people like their culture being made fun of.
  12. One thing that stands out in Janet Jackson’s costume for her ‘Made for Now’ music video is her necklace. The short video clip which was done in remembrance of Michael Jackson (Janet’s late brother) on his birthday sees the queen styled in beautiful neck, head and hand jewelry.The neck piece was made by Ghana’s award winning jewelry designer, Aphia Sakyi.Titled ‘Yaa Asantewaa,’ the necklace is taken from her-soon-to-be-released Summer/Harmattan 2018 collection ’50 Shades Of Grey’ at Accra Fashion Week 2018 in October. Janet Jackson’s new video ‘Made For Now’ is a fun uptempo music that takes you back to the old days when urban RnB had fun and life.The sister of the late great Michael Jackson stunned viewers in her heavily style African attire throughout the video.The mega star recently took to instagram to post her first intagram video that sees a humorous spoof version of her auditions for the ‘Made For Now’ video featuring instagram stars such as @KingBach and @BlameItOnKway.Janet Jackson plays the role of a queen that approves the talents before her.The collaboration might just be the most iconic Ghanaian/Western fashion collaboration in today’s Ghanaian fashion world.The late Michael Jackson was also once adorned African clothes on his visit to Ghana in 1995.However, a modern version of African fashion and a modern Africa can see this collaboration not just as an acknowledgement of African roots, but an inspiratiton for African future. citinewsroom.com
  13. I have just watched one of Janet’s interviews and she said that this video has nothing to do with Remember the Time and it’s just a coincidence that it came out on his birthday.

  15. I don't think this has been posted yet Janet Jackson will receive the rock star award at the 2018 Black Girls Rock awards. The Grammy winner will be honored as a "phenomenal woman in music," organizers said Thursday. Jackson recently released "Made For Now," her single with Daddy Yankee. Queen Latifah will host the show, which will be taped Sunday at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

Blige will receive the star power award. Campbell will be presented with the black girl magic award and Jamison will receive the living legend award for her work in dance and choreography. Kiro7.com

    I appreciate your apology but I didn’t take any offence with what you posted. You can never tell the tone behind the written word so I try and take things written on forums lightly.
  19. Thriller is number 6 in the UK. Greatest Hits by Queen is number 1.
