Recommended Posts

Raven has always been a Janet Stan since she was a little girl. I remember her mentioning Janet on The Cosby show as a little girl. Her and Rudy.

not sure if this was posted, not sure if I care if it was... :unsure:

 

Good Times actress BernNadette Stanis talks about a young Janet Jackson being her lord and savior down to earth, not spoiled, prepared and disciplined. So even at a young age, Janet was professional and graceful while other favs were playing in the sandbox and making fake money out of play-doh. Whew else?!

 

starts @ 10:43...

Simon Cowell mentioned Janet when talking about one of the contestants (Fleur East) on X-Factor and the contestant mentioned Janet as well.
 
 

Fleur East is set to be signed by Simon Cowell regardless of tonight’s X Factor 2014 results.

 

Fleur is in the final against Overs rival Ben Haenow after Andrea Faustini finished third in last night’s first live show.

 

But whatever happens this evening, it seems that Fleur’s set for a career in the music biz.

 

The Daily Star on Sunday quotes Simon Cowell as saying: “She’s already a superstar. She could be the ­British Rihanna.”

 

A source told the newspaper: “Simon made the decision to sign Fleur after last week’s semi-final. He would love her to be crowned champion but he will give her a record deal whatever ­happens.”

 

Simon said: “I’d have to say Fleur really has the potential to be huge if she was given material as good as Uptown Funk."

 

“I’ve never seen such a reaction to a song in my life. It was unbelievable. The original is fantastic but what she did with it is ­incredible. It was almost perfection.”

 

He added: “She reminds me of what Janet Jackson used to do at the height of her career. She could sing and dance and put on a show and we haven’t seen anyone like that in a long time.”

 

Speaking about her plans after the show, Fleur said this weekend: “The dream is obviously to become an international star."

 

“That has always been my aim and now hopefully I can make that happen."

 

“I want to be like a modern-day Janet Jackson. I have so many ideas I just want to get started.”

 

This year’s final airs this Saturday and Sunday on ITV, live from Wembley Arena, where the contestants will appear in front of an audience of thousands.

 

The shows will also feature guest performances from One Direction, Sam Smith and Olly Murs.

“The first video that made me want to get into entertainment was Janet Jackson’s ‘That’s The Way Love Goes.’ I eventually got into modeling at the age of 14.”

She is a huge fan.  She was a guest host on the russ parr "hater"  <_< morning show last year and she kept bringing up Janet randomly during conversations.  Almost every question they asked her she managed to slip Janet in.  If she were in a group she would want herself, Janet and Kelly Rowland.  The artist she wants to work with the most Janet.  How she keeps in shape dancing to janet.
