It’s finally here everybody- the video to Janet Jackson‘s new single No Sleeep featuring J Cole and directed by Dave Meyers.

The visually stunning clip feels like That’s the Way Love Goes redux and appears in some places to actually harken back to the song’s visual, as well as that of I Get So Lonely.

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…

JANET JACKSON NUTRI SYSTEM

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.

Janet Jackson & Family in Court

Singer Janet Jackson, along with the other members of her famous family, were spotted earlier today entering the Los Angeles County Courthouse for the first day of testimony in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, the man who stands accused of administering the lethal dose of propofol that killed Michael Jackson.

According to CNN, the trial is expected to last 6-8 weeks, with Michaels’s oldest son,Prince, expected to take the stand at some point.


And in another bit of Janet news, the singer is expected to continue on with her ‘Up Close & Personal’ tour in October.

Janet will perform several shows in Australia and South Africa before heading back to the U.S. and playing dates in Las Vegas, Miami and Tampa, Florida.

And in support of Janet’s tour, check out this fan made video that chronicles the singer’s entire musical career. It is by far one of the greatest tribute videos I have ever seen.

Janet Reviewing Producers + Marriage Rumors

According to Billboard.com, new music from Janet Jackson won’t be forthcoming this year, however the singer’s management did inform them that the icon has been reviewing potential producers while on tour.

Janet has been on the road in support of her 2009 compilation album “Janet: Number Ones” since last year and will reportedly stay on the road until at least mid-February of 2012.

Janet’s last album, 2008’s “Discipline,” was a commercial disappointment, debuting at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 [The 6th of her career] and then quickly falling down the charts. To date the album has been certified platinum but has actually sold just over 700,000 copies.

And in more JJ news, published reports claim the 45 year old singer is engaged to boyfriend Wissam Al Mana and planning a family.

I don’t think it takes a genius to know this story is false. Janet is notoriously private and were she to get married or even be thinking about marriage, the world would never know until five years later when she filed for divorce (LOL).

Miss Janet Wows at amfAR Event

Singer Janet Jackson was a vision of loveliness last night as she walked the red carpet at amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala. The 45 year old singer, who just celebrated her birthday on May 16th, was dressed in an eye catching green and purple ensemble from the Haider Ackermann Fall/Winter 2011 collection.

Janet will resume her highly successful “Up Close & Personal Tour” in June, making stops in Denmark, Germany, France and England.

There is also a rumor floating around on the Janet Xone forum that says the singer will be honored at this year’s BET Awards. Of course BET has not announced who the 2011 Recipient of their Lifetime Achievement Award will be- it should be noted however that Janet has a show scheduled for that evening.

Miss Jackson Inks Movie Deal

According to newly published reports, Janet Jackson has inked a deal with Lionsgate Pictures to develop and produce a feature film for the company. Janet has recently starred in three Lionsgate films, including “Why Did I Get Married?”, “Why Did I Get Married Too?” and “For Colored Girls.”

Mike Paseornek, president of Lionsgate picture production and promotion, said the studio recognized Janet’s instincts for great stories. “She is a powerful on-screen presence, with a vast audience, and we believe she will be an equally powerful presence behind the scenes,” Paseornek says. “We are honored to be able to provide a home for her ideas, passion and immense talent.”

Janet also released a statement, saying: “Many people forget I started out as an actor. I have been fortunate to work in the film industry, though not as much as I would like. I have a passion for storytelling, and have been doing it through my music for some time.”

As for what type of movies Janet may focus on, the singer says she is drawn to diverse material but has a particular love for film noir.
