Janet Jackson headlined last night’s Essence Music Festival and she killed it. How do I know this sitting on my couch in New York City? Because the singer was a trending topic on Twitter and everyone from fans, to reporters, to bloggers were singing her praises.
Simone Smalls, publicist to singer Michelle Williams, said “Babbyyy… Janet Jackson worked that stage like rent is due tomorrow!!! She killed [the] Essence Music Festival!
CNN Reporter Roland Martin commented on the singer’s numerous costume changes, saying: Janet’s in a leather/fur dominatrix outfit. She’s got 4 guys in leather and leashes. Walked em out like they were her pets. GROWN ASS WOMAN
Fellow blogger Angel Laws chimed in with several photos of Janet and described the singer’s performance as “amazing” and “dope.”
EMF concert goers also praised the 44 year old diva, saying she looked awesome, sounded great and was the greatest performer that ever lived.
Janet’s set lasted just over two hours I am told ended with the singer breaking down while singing “Together Again” and pictures of her brother Michael being shown on the jumbo-tron.
