More Janet Goodies From Prestige Magazine


More photos from Janet Jackson’s shoot with Prestige Magazine have found their way to the internet, and like the others that came before, Janet sports a short bob and a very dark, almost gothic look. I like the look but am hoping for a more cheerier vibe when the official album promo shots are revealed.

And with the release of the album scheduled for late next month, that should be any day now. Janet is a testament to how well dark skin ages and for the life of me I cannot imagine why she is called old. Janet, Toni Braxton and Halle Berry are all in the same age bracket and have never looked better in my opinion.

Women especially should be weary of calling other women old because you too one day will see 40 and trust me when I tell you, 40 isn’t how you imagine it to be. Like a fine wine women actually start to peak at this age and really come into their own. When you are 20 you think you are a woman but when you are 40 you know you are and what that really means.

40 is a beautiful place to be in life sistas- trust me.

… and no I’m not 40- but I am up the street and around the corner from it- LOL.

  1. Blacks in general have no respect for their elders or their accomplishments which is why you see us dogging Janet, Michael, James Brown and hell I even saw fools dogging out Prince in favor of Justin Timberlake. We forget that those four people in general have basically shpaed the way Black and White artists present themselves. When James Brown dies these lil young whipper-snappers were dogging him out but cried like babies when Anna Nicole Smith died. Those fools don’t realize that James Brown is literally the architect of Black music. He created Prince and Michael. Janet birthed every female artist out right now. Every last one of them stage their performances and tours after Janet. I saw tour footage of Ciara, Beyonce and Britney Spears where they all pulled a guy up on stage and freaked him. Janet sho to the nuff created that ish. Luckily some of us are over 30 and realize what time it really is.

    By the way I love the dress and hair on Janet but the darkness and blank looks on her face are icky. Mark Lidell takes a lot of photos like that though so I blame him for the overall dullness of this particularly photo shoot.

    I love that smilie ๐Ÿ˜†

  2. ^^^ Just because someone thinks janet is old(which she is) doesn’t mean blacks are dogging her or are not showing her respect. People grow old, that’s life…..

  3. When did being 41 become old? People started calling Janet old the minute she hit 40 as if 39 is the cut off age for youth. Only silly young ignorant people buy into such foolishness. Oh and Janet haters buy into it as well. If Janet is old then Halle must be a fossil.

  7. Brown Sista is the only blog that speaks with common sense but the women here are so evil, hateful and spiteful that they don’t hear anything that doesn’t jive with their need to down other women in order to feel good about themselves. Know this about Black women. They don’t like any woman who they think they can take their man. The prettier a woman is and the more she isn’t afraid to flaunt that beauty the more Black women will hate on them. When Janet was being dogged out by the media a few years back Black women had her back but now that Janet is clearly on her way to solid comeback sistas have to find some reason to tear her down and whereas before it was her supposed freaky photo shoots, now it is because she old. We will always find a reason to hate the Black women of the world that we should be most proud of. You don’t have to be a fan of Janet to know she is not old. You can call her washed up or a has been but old, are you kidding me? What constitutes being old and who made any of the you the judge of that in the first place? Say what you will, Janet is doing more for an old lady than many of you here who are half her age. Tina Turner toured well into her sixties and sold out stadiums all over the world. Beyonce 26 and couldn’t sell out arenas with 15,000 seats. Old folks rule. ๐Ÿ˜†

  8. Hey, who jacked Janet’s bootay :lol2:

    Other than that, she looks good :banana:

  9. JBL I’m 24 and I know the deal, people over 30 are not the only ones to see what is going on. People are just set on TODAY times that’s all. Everyone knows the truth. :dance1:

  10. I agree with JBL First comment 100% Blacks(not all) far too many doesn’t respect their legends like White people do. Black people buy the current record whites buy the entire collection. Understand?

  11. Yeah she lost weight….b/c her booty looks pointy now. ๐Ÿ˜† Nevertheless I LOVE that there woman!! CREE is right as far as her first sentence. Brownsista DOES talk common sense. This is a great site. One that does not bash or dog celebrities. They simply post updates. I am glad I found this site last year. Thumbs up Brownsista :thumbsup: :brownsista:

  12. Blacks don’t respect their elders … why do you think Tina Turner had to rely on white folks to rebuild her career. It wasn’t the Temptations or the O’Jays who helped that woman back in the day, it was the Rollings Stones and other white British rock and pop acts. When she stages her shows, 70 to 80 percent of the crowds are white. I went to her concert years ago and was disappointed that there weren’t more blacks. And she was in her 40s when she came back!!!! So yes, it’s a black thing. The Rolling Stones and the Eagles are still doing the damn thing, yet veteran black acts are struggling. That says something.

    :dance1:

    Bring it on home Me. Bring it on home. You hit the nail right on the head. Blacks never support their artists like Whites do. Diana Ross had to cancel her tour in this country a few years ago because of no interest. Whereas Cher could tour tomorrow and sell out areanas and stadiums. The OVERHYPED Madonna will be 50 this year and she too can fill up stadiums even when her albums flop. White people support their icons and legends while we tear ours down. Blacks, espcially the women, are certified haters.

  14. I feel what you guys are saying but at the same time, its about what people like. And if people (black, white, whatever) don’t like it, we won’t support it. I understand that Blacks should support each other more often….that’s true! BUT ticket prices, gas prices etc are to high to just spend money on something you really aren’t feeling anyway. :confused: Ya know?

  15. A few things I agree with: 40 is not old. Young fans today cant see past today. James Brown is more influential than most would give him credit for. I love Janet! :brownsista:

  16. Liyah you have a great point. I think if the economy was in better shape or better – if the unemployment rate was not as high for blacks as it is for whites, you would see a little more support. On the other hand, I do agree that we need to support our artist. I’m in KC and we don’t see as much as larger cities do. Sure we get acts from time to time, but I’m in my 40’s and would love to see the artist I grew up listening to. Earth, Wind, and Fire came through a couple of years ago – and we partied. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Ticket prices weren’t through the roof and everyone had a good time. I wonder if black artists’ monetary commands are so excessive than blacks are willing to pay? I would love to see Tina, but probably couldn’t afford her ticket price. By the way, I’m 40 and that is when the real fun begins ๐Ÿ™‚ Janet’ has taken better pics before.

  17. @Cree. What you spoke on is a sickness that is bigger than this blogsite. It is really so sad that the most beautiful, powerful, dynamic women in the world…are mentally sick from racism and can’t see the beauty and power in themselves= so they can’t see it in other black women. I think this site is actually better than most blog sites in terms of negativity about black women. It gets worse. We’ve got to get to the root of this as black women because I think we are killing ourselves and our people just with the self hate and hate of others. Janet is the Bomb. Mary J is the Bomb. Alicia Keys is the Bomb, Rihanna is the Bomb, Ciara is the Bomb, Erykah Badu is the Bomb. We’ve got to see it in ourselves and see it in the next sister as well–because if we don’t…we cant dang well be sure nobody else is going to see it for us.

  18. I disagree that blacks don’t respect our elders. i’m 34–so maybe iIm not young enough anymore to speak for young people…but I think respect for elders is still high. I think that what we are seeing is that young black people…like young people of other races, have internalized AMERICAN culture and AMERICAN culture does not value women as we age. It is the antithesis of black culture to disrespect elders…but the more we adapt to this culture, the more we pick up AMERICAN values.

  19. “They donโ€™t like any woman who they think they can take their man. The prettier a woman is and the more she isnโ€™t afraid to flaunt that beauty the more Black women will hate on them.”

    Yes indeed.

    good luck Janet.

  20. I’m glad to see that she is fully dressed in that photo. She looks nice! She doesn’t look her age at all.

  21. BIG UPS TO “OFFICIAL STAND UP GIRL” :bowdown: YOU HAVE SAID IT ALL….AND IT SHOULD BE WRITTEN…. :brownsista:

  22. โ€œIf you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn’t part of ourselves doesn’t disturb usโ€ :hater:

    Go Janet :dance: I love the video,yo a** :booty: check the vid red suit :thumbsup: ,the hair and the shoe game in this pic definitely proves she is “GROWN & SEXY” :bowdown: nuff said…

  23. Well since you black women on here think that other black women like to down each other, then you shouldn’t get mad when a black man thinks the same thing about yall.
