Singer Janet Jackson graces the April 2008 edition of BlackBook Magazine- and what a stunning cover it is. Janet is pictured all caged up in a Mathew Rolston photo shoot that is not only provocative, but a little bit scary. I love the cover- but one has to wonder what Mathew was thinking of when he had Janet don that head gear for the second pic.
In other Janet news, the singer has been confirmed as the musical act for the March 15th episode of Saturday Night Live.
Update: Janet Jackson’s representative has played down reports of the singer’s hospitalization in Los Angeles on Monday, insisting she was just suffering from influenza. The R&B superstar sparked fears for her health after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center late on Monday “with a shortness of breath”, according to US Magazine.com. But the “Nasty” hitmaker’s spokesperson has reassured fans about the star’s illness, saying, “She’s just battling this flu like everyone else. Janet is fine.” As WENN goes to press, it is currently unknown whether or not Jackson has been discharged from the hospital or whether she will still perform on SNL this Saturday, as previously reported.
