what has Janet Jackson’s boyfriend done for her lately?

A source tells Us Weekly that Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana "gave her a huge, expensive ring" earlier this year.

"She's afraid it will get lost, so she keeps it locked up!"

The luxury-brand mogul, 37, will spare no expense on his nuptials to Miss Jackson, set for spring in Qatar.

The affair "will cost millions," reveals a second Jackson insider. "He is flying in all of Janet's friends and family on private jets." (Quick refresher: The L.A.-based singer has seven siblings and more than 20 nieces and nephews.)

Adds the source, "He wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu."

The ceremony will undoubtedly be "a circus," another source says.

The twice-wed Nutrisystem spokeswoman, 46 -- who split from Jermaine Dupri in 2009 -- is eager to make it official with her love of two years.

"She wants kids," says the Jackson source. "If she can't have them, she will adopt."

I think they're slow on news stories. They just copy and paste, change the names and dates and pass it as "gossip"

I'd rather just put on my kitten heel Candies and work the strip.

Isn't that what you call Friday? Or what TOF calls "a living"?

Versace Fall 2013: Janet Jackson Style

Subtle, Versace is not.

Versace-RF13-1999-300x451.jpg

Last night I made my way into Versace’s show space on Via Gesu–which is usually “mood” lit so dimly that I have to watch my every step–to find a stark-white, insanely brightly lit room, arranged in a sort of maze-like structure, with the audience seated in the center. Oh, and Janet Jackson was there.

Yes. Janet, in a leather biker jacket with her braids pulled into a high ponytail, was holding court in the front row. (Lana Del Rey was also there).

And the collection certainly paid homage to Jackson’s love of leather and latex (think Rhythm Nation). There were latex dresses, pants, coats, skirts, jackets–you get the picture. The two latex bodysuits which opened the collection, one in black and one in white, matched with a long jacket, could have easily been one of Jackson’s stage costumes. And, of course, you can’t see a red leather biker jacket without thinking of Janet’s brother Michael. Before the show got underway, both Janet’s and Michael’s music was pumped through the loud speakers–though neither Jackson sibling’s music featured on the runway playlist.

The collection also paid homage to London (or St. Marks St.) punk. Plaid in grey and yellow, as well as slightly garish animal prints, accented the mostly black, white and red collection. Long nails pierced the ears of models, or closed the necklines and bodices of jackets and dresses. Other models wore spiky dog collars, or leather or metallic belts wrapped around their torsos.

Some pieces, like the slick latex pants equipped with a wallet chain, or the tattered punk t-shirt worn underneath a metallic harness, looked like they could have walked right out of Tripp NYC. Others, like a smart tuxedo jacket, with nail-clusters on the lapels, the expertly tailored biker jackets, and the body-con mini-dresses, belied the collection’s designer origins–and designer prices.

The evening wear perfectly fused the collection’s punk inspiration with Versace’s ultra-glamorous, ultra-sexy design codes. A shiny one shouldered gown was inlaid with shredded fabric not unlike that seen on the back of a well-worn t-shirt. Gowns were twisted to reveal flesh and then clasped with rough nails, leather belts, or dog collars. The finale looks, which echoed the debut, were latex gowns in black and white, which had been slashed through with sheer panels. Let’s just say we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Janet wearing one of them in the coming months.

Vibe Vixen

The 19 Most Lustable Celebs Since ’93

vibevixen-janet-jackson-sex.jpg

11. Janet Jackson

Justify My Lust: She’s got killer abs and ass, but it’s not just her stacks that make this Jackson so bad; it’s the freak in her. A seamless blend of demure and dominatrix; she was rocking latex, embracing exhibitionism and cracking whips before your girlfriend could spell S&M.

What’s Your Fantasy: You normally like to command the bedroom reins, but for Miss Jackson (if you’re nasty), you relinquish control for a leather-cuffed, hands-free tour inside her rhythm nation.

Money Shot: Her carnal Rolling Stone cover—a topless 27-year-old Janet, with bare breasts cradled in her then-hubby ’s hands. Milky.

Janet Jackson has joined the billion dollar club.

The All For You hitmaker has boasted a multi-million dollarlb_icon1.png fortune for years, but now she has joined her new husband, retail entrepreneur Wissam Al Mana, and the elite group of moneymakers whose bank balances top $1 billion, according to industry publication Variety.

The singer has raked in a total of $260 million (£168 million) in album sales thanks to the success of Control, Janet and Rhythm Nation 1814, and she has also taken in another $81 million (£52 million) from music and bookicon1.png publishing fees.

Jackson's multiple sold-out world tours have contributed another $458 million (£295 million) to her net worth, with an additional $81.5 million (£53 million) coming from tour sponsorships and licensing fees.

The 47 year old has also banked an impressive $304 million (£196 million) from her box office roles in 2000's The Nutty Professoricon1.png Ii: The Klumps, Poetic Justice and For Colored Girls.

The superstar's whopping personal fortune puts her in good company - Madonna, filmmakers George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, and mediaicon1.png mogul Oprah Winfrey have all made the ultra-exclusive list.

I find it hard to believe 100% of this as Forbes has already clocked Madonna for not being a billionaire. :unsure:
