Behind the Scenes with Janet

Though I am not a fan of Janet Jackson’s NutriSystem commercials, or the overly airbrushed images from her Blackglama campaign, I am a fan of the behind the scenes videos that usually accompany these promotions.

It is with these videos that we truly get to see Janet at her best. I am also usually reminded of why I am a stone cold fan. In the video below, Janet is relaxed and playful- takes me back to the earlier years before she seem to become so guarded and camera shy.

As for Janet’s new svelte look, she needs to take it to the streets and let the paparazzi get some hot “candids” of her. Janet’s body is circa 1986 in this video. I haven’t seen her look this naturally “thick” in years. It is a great look for her.

This video will probably also dispel those rumors that the previous images of her released by NutriSystem were altered in some way.

Janet Visits the Tonight Show

With her “Number Ones: Up Close & Personal” world tour finally over, singer Janet Jackson found time to go back to promoting her New York Times Bestseller “True You,” which has just been released in paperback.

Janet’s first stop was one she has made several times over the last few years, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Sporting a new shoulder length pulled back do and a figure hugging lace accentuated dress, Janet first took to the stage alone, discussing various passages from her book and of course her new stint as spokesperson for NutriSystem’s “Success” program.

Janet was later joined by her trainer Tony Martinez, who put Jay through a few of the drills he uses to help keep Janet tight and toned.

Sadly, there wasn’t much talk about any upcoming musical or movie projects from the singer.

Janet Jackson is the New Face Of…

Pop icon Janet Jackson is reportedly the new face of NutriSystem. A photo of the singer inside next month’s edition of Shape Magazine shows the dance diva striking a pose and singing the praises of the company’s “28-Day Plan.”

Jackson, 45, and no stranger to yo-yo dieting, says she chose NutriSystem to help maintain her weight while on tour.

“If you want to lose weight and learn how to keep it off, you need a plan that’s easy, that works for you and that fits into your life.”

Janet is scheduled to hit the TV circuit later this week to announce the news publicly.


Miss Jackson Gets Her Own Fur Line

Following Blackglama’s most successful “What Becomes a Legend Most?” ad campaign to date, featuring Janet Jackson, the brand announced this morning the launch of the Janet Jackson Blackglama collection. The line of luxe fur outerwear and accessories will debut in stores in November.

“The art of fashion is one of my great passions,” states Janet Jackson. “I’ve worked for years to bring a collection into the world. Partnering with Blackglama is very exciting.”

The collection is comprised of 15 pieces ranging from coats, jackets, vests, scarves, gloves and other accessories. All contain both classic and contemporary elements and utilize Blackglama mink in conjunction with other materials such as leather.

“When we began preparation for the second Blackglama campaign, Janet became very involved in the design process. The result was an amazing collection of Blackglama garments and accessories that reflect Janet’s tremendous sense of style and fashion,” said Mike McCrea, VP of Marketing for Blackglama. “This is one of the most visually appealing and innovative Blackglama collections I have seen.”

The line is priced for the luxury market and will retail in the Fur Salon at select Saks Fifth Avenue and the Maximilian Fur Salon at select Bloomingdales.


Editors Note: What happened to Janet’s intimate apparel line, Pleasure Principle, announced to the world over three years?

When will Janet stop playing with her fans emotions and get back in the studio? Fur lines and Tyler Perry movies won’t keep her stanbase satisfied for too much longer.

Miss Jackson Goes Green for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia

My favorite singer, Janet Jackson, is covering the November edition of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. The 45-year old pop diva celebrates this month’s Abu Dhabi Formula 1 and the impending 40th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates, in an array of outfits that feature the colors of the country’s flag.

Janet was photographed by Alan Gelati, styled by Sally Matthews and is reportedly wearing a Tom Ford original creation via his Fall 2011 collection.
