Janet Jackson “Gifts” Her Fans

I keep trying to get my VMA post up but something keeps getting in the way. Earlier it was all the Kanye West hoopla and now it’s Janet Jackson making a bit of hoopla of her own. The singer just posted a gift to her fans on her website- a new single entitled “Make Me”. Not much is known about the single, and as a fan I am sad to say that I am not very impressed by it. I think it is more than likely a teaser single to get fans ready for her new album which she says will be out in 2010. Janet has reunited with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the hitmaking duo that helped her sell over 150 million records worldwide.

Click here to listen to the new single for yourselves.

And in other Janet news. Of course everyone is talking about her performance at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards. Janet performed a tribute to her brother with some very special friends. Janet was joined by Michael’s dancers who were scheduled to go on tour with him, as well as her old choreographer Tina Landon, and Chris Judd, who many of you may remember as Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband.

Peep the performance pics above and video of the performance can be seen here.

  1. I AM SO SORRY, I AM REALLY SORRY…
    BUT HOW DARE SHE!!!!!!!!!

    HOURS AFTER SHE PERFORMS FOR “MICHEAL” HER SINGLE COMES OUT….HMMM I TRIED TO RESIST BUT, USING UR DEAD BROTHER LIKE THAT…ARE U SERIOUS…IM SORRY!!!!!!!!

  2. She was getting it
    Best performance of the night Hands down,her lines are sick, Her ticking is on point, The baddest

  3. I hope she didn’t tell her camp to put the song out right after that great performance hopefully it was already scheduled to come out tonight.

  4. No matter what Janet or her family does folks will claim they are trying to benefit from his death. Janet has a had a lively career for years and it won’t end sinply because her beloved brother is gone.

  5. It is not even a new single.

    It was a gift to her fans.

    I swear some of yall don’t read well.

    Janet has always had her own career.

    No matter what the family does people is going to say they are trying to gain off of Micheal

    Janet has her own millions.

    Don’t Hate

    It is really a great song.

  6. It does sound like old Janet and is actually a reworking of a Michael song.

    Go head Janet and do your thing.

    I liked her performance and wish her all the best. So glad she hooked back up with Jimmy and Terry.

  7. UMMM JANET WOULD NEVER CAPTIALIZE OFF HER BROTHER DEATH. ARE YOU KIDDING??????? ITS NOT LIKE SHE WANTS MONEY FROM IT. SHE HAS DONE THIS ONCE B4 FOR HER FANS. MORE THAN LIKELY ITS NOT EVEN THE SOUND SHE GOING FOR THE NEW ALBUM. ITS HER SHOWING US LOVE BACK CAUSE WE BEEN SUPPORTING HER THRU THIS TOUGH TIME.

    YALL THINK & READ TO MUCH INTO THINGS. JANET IS A LEGEND/ICON IN HER OWN RIGHT. SHE NEVER NEEDED HER BROTHER OR FAMILY TO HELP HER TO GET TO HER STATUS TODAY.

  8. BTW I LOVE THIS SONG & SHE KINDA HAS SOME “DONT STOP TILL YOU GET ENOUGH” FEEL TO IT.

  9. Love Janet for getting up there and showing her love for Mike but I will keep it real and say her moves were not on point in my OP!
    My family watched it together and everyone said Janet’s dancing looked off!!!
    But I will give respect for showing strength and doing the best that she could.

    Much love Janet!

  10. Get over it!

    beyawnsay and JZ talk about their relationship fake marriage to sell records and don’t even reach their goals. LMFAOOOOOOOOO

  11. loved the perfomance put your hands up for the real dancer and love the new song,cnt wait for her album and to see her back on tour if she dsnt come to my country i will catch her at the nearest stop….i’m so ready and xcited.

  12. janet dancing was on point she slipped one lil time. other than that she slayed.

  13. Best Performance of the Night!

    Hands down! I Loved that they used pure dancers and not stars to do the tribute and they worked that thing out over time!

  14. Janet rock it i wish she dance little bit more but she work it. You can tell she was still hurting from her brother death. She was mad mean mugging on that stage lol.

  15. Janet’s performance was great! It was wonderful to see her perform because she’s an amazing entertainer and the entire dance tribute was on point. Loved it!!! Go Janet!!

  16. I loved her performance, just wish it could have been longer. She looked good and reminded everyone why she is the legend and icon that she is. Just hoping that the MJ tribute is not overshadowed by Kanye’s mess.

    Love the new song. It sounds like a classic Janet Jackosn song.

  17. The song is not a single, just a gift to her fans. She’s done this before! So to anyone thinking she’s capitalizing off of MJ, think again! She never has before and wouldn’t do it now. Anyway, I love the song and the performance was GREAT! If u expect Janet to dance at 43 like she did at 23, then I hope that U can do the same. Otherwise, stand down.

  18. She can dance like nobody’s business. But you notice the thing about her is she does not have to wear panties on a stage and still garners the same attention. It’s just not necessary.

  19. Definetely the Best of the Night!!! I am glad Stef you recognized the dancers, she had the original posse with her. Laura (sp) Gibson was also a dancer she has worked with Diddy in his reality show stuff.

    I agree with BEE, Janet has always killed the stage and done it with great costumes and pure performance. Minus nipplegate she does her sexy in a different way.

  20. Janet represented she did but she stumbled a little with the dance performance but overall she opened the awards very well and I almost cried when I seen the backdrop of Her and Michael dance together on “scream”

  21. @ Lizz Janet Jackson performed and rolled out lol, she wasn’t in the audience a seating chart had her and Beyonce sitting beside one another. On the red carpet Beyonce said that Janet Jackson was one of her inspirations, and she was looking forward to seeing her perform. The camras showed Beyonce, J-lo, Alicia Keys cheering for Janet Jackson whild performing. I loved the tribute to her brother I lost my voice likeshit when she walked out. A true Icon. The look she gave at the end I was so done ONLY JANET JACKSON lol. She had a little slip, but it was PERFECTION to the fullest. Now…….. as for the new song it is “NOT” new, it’s a song for her FANS, it was recorded around her ‘All For You’ era, which was back in 2000. 9 years ago lol!!!!!

  22. lets keep this JANET post about JANET if you wanna talk bad about beyonce go to her post because she got just as much respect as janet last night.

  23. And the Janet and beyonce thing beyonce has said many times she loves janet and that she’s one of her many inspirations. If janet is still upset about that shame on her because joe jackson himself has been seen at a beyonce concert so that itself shows there’s no bad blood, and also he knows what she said is the truth so if he can get past that so should she.

  24. yall need to calm the eff down!
    its a gift and its dedicated to Michael.
    it makes sense to release it right after a tribute performance.
    why do we hate on our own entertainers?
    we need to support the Jackson family.
    Janet did an awesome job and im proud to be her fan!!!

  25. @12345-u need 2 start getting paid 2 defend entertainers verbally-ur ridiculous but funny so keep going

  26. Yes I totally noticed everyone in the dance background. I could not believe Tina was up there, I know there was a rift between them but obviously they made up. I saw Chris Judd too!! I was just happy to see Janet at work…especially on MTV since they banned her before. I guess Michael had to pass in order for them to let her back on huh? None the less I am still a fa. I miss michael so much I cry everytime I hear a song. I cannot listen to any of my Michael albums. Kudos to Jan for her strength.

  27. To the comments further about about Janet being off, she was off a bit because she stumble when she tried to get up off her knees. Also I think the video and the song were a bit out of sink, not really Janet. All in all she was great!

  28. UMM WHAT BEYONCE SAID ABOUT THE JACKSON WASNT EVEN TRUE. AND JANET NEVER HAD BEEF WITH BEYONCE. SHE ALSO SAID SHE IS A FAN OF BEYONCE.

  29. Janet is such a bad chick. It’s ridiculous. She looked so pretty, and you could tell that Janet is holding it down for her brother. Janet knows she went out there to perform, because that is what MJ was all about, performance even when you think you can’t. Her brother perform through his trials, and she did the same.

    But it’s sad to think that some believe Janet capitalize off her brother. Are you serious? To me,it seems as if Janet is the only Jackson that really knew MJ and not selling her story to the tabloids, or doing interviews . If you look at her face, and listen to her words, Janet is more angry than anything which is understandable. At the BET awards, she said to you MJ was an icon , but to once he was family. And then in the Harpar Bazaar interview she said that entertainment was a job to them. And last night she seemed to angry, and she has every right. MJ was her brother, and the world , when he was alive ridiculed him, belittle him, caused so much pain, and then the minute he died, everyone is on his butt again. I, feel for Janet the sister because she’s hurting than any other. They were close. Janet is strong, but I wish that she would take a break from the Hollywood garbage and just chill and gather some perspective, if not her grieve is going to hit her like a ton of bricks.

  30. Janet did a great job, let’s not forget her brother died. I have always loved that song and video…it was a great tribute I wish chris brown was able to dance to thriller. It was really great to watch.:)

  31. i wish this performance was longer, other than that she was really hot. and she is really strong for coming out and doing this.i wonder how it feels to have such a great brother like MJ. that millions of people respect and emulate so much. i wonder did she leave the event after?

  32. and ruserious you should be a judge (im using that term loosely) because that’s all you seem to do to people. and lol at wat u did with my name thats classic. and how do you know im a her tutu?

  33. The performance was great.It’s a shame though that Michael and her never had the oppurtunity to sing this song together when he was alive. I remember when he did it in his History tour, it was fire too.

  34. And it’s also a shame that people are more focused on Kanye. He has not only ruined Taylor’s moment but MJ’s tribute too.

  35. 17150918 umm… i guess i just assumed that the majority of the people on here are women, except for the ones who obviously state they arent. sorry though if your not. i should have said he/she.

  36. no problem n a masc. one at dat wit a lady jus to get dat out the way. cuz some people jump to conclusions ( not you). by the way alicia new snippet sound cool

  37. @12345- if u ain’t a woman ur a metrosexual or gay-cuz u a lil emotional & usually only women or feminine men are like that.

  38. i aint emotional im jus real and speak da truth but if u take dat as emotional dats strait.

  39. This is so refreshing to read all of the love Janet is getting. I thought I had to come one here and fight for her name but it seems like everybody “got it” it was a great performance. And IF JANET PERFORMED IN THE SAME COSTUMES AS BEYONCE SHE WOULD ECLIPSE HER ASS QUICK.

  40. everything has to be about beyonce and people that dont even likes her brings her up????????

  41. I like her performance, I like the new single! There was nothing not to like.
    If anyone is complaining about her dancing I would love to see if you are in your 40’s and can still move like her…lol…

    Honestly I dont think there is any bad blood between her and Bey,,people dont make something out of nothing….

    I am sooooooo happy she is back with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis…and I cannot wait to hear what every new songs she comes out with in the future.

    RIP Michael,,,

  42. JANETTTT I love the song. I love the performance. Black people…sHUT UP and support our BLACK QUEEEN OF POP!!! Madonna is 52 and gets maddd love from her people but JANET…people ready to retire her at 43. SHe is BADDD! and I love her!!! and KEEP IT UP!!! JANET!

  43. @ROCKON, WTF DO BEYONCE AND J-Z HAVE TO DO WITH THIS? PPL never seems to amaze me to always bring beyonce name up. dang!!!!! leave her alone

  44. Why does all of her performances have to be with a pre-recorded track? Does anybody sing and dance anymore? And why didn’t she perform with Michael and her brothers more often? She did the stint in the video “2300 Jackson Street” but that was it. I would really love to see them all perform together. I think the WORLD would love to see that. But for some reason musical THIS musical family just doesn’t do that. Know what I take that back. They did perform together on the Jacksons Variety Show back in the 70’s. But wouldn’t it be great to see Janet with her brothers now? Of course they would need to drop a few pounds…lol.

  45. Ms. Jackson rocked it. She still got it. Hell it never left. I can’t wait for her new album.

  46. Janet’s dancing and stage presence was amazing as usual. Her stance and facial expression at the end was so diva; she’s awesome. The song ‘Make Me’ is catchy with a hot bassline and percussion…so cute.
