I predict 2008 will the year of the 80’s Diva, starting off with my favorite Diva of them all, Miss Janet Jackson. The planets are aligned and I feel magic in the air. I had hoped new Janet info would drop on January 1st. because I wanted to make my first article of 2008 about Janet. Rumor had it Janet’s new video would debut on BET on the 1st, but even more news has been revealed before that, so hopefully I will not only open 2008 with Janet, but close out 2007 with the sista as well. Blatin1814 was kind enough to send me a new interview and fabulous photo shoot Janet did for a Hong Kong magazine called Prestige. The interview is typical of all Janet’s interviews- so we don’t learn anything new. That leaves us to talk about the part I love talking about the most- the new pics. Now you guys know I love a good photo shoot and Mark Liddell, who photographed Janet exclusively for Prestige, did not disappoint.
Janet looks fresh and new and I am loving the new shorter hairstyle. Like the return of the 80’s Diva to spotlight in 2008 (Whitney is next y’all), I see a return to shorter more natural dos for sistas as well. I predict big weaves and lace front wigs are on their way out- LOL, and shorter, more “real” looking hair is on it’s way in.
You can check out the cover to Prestige above and the entire photo shoot below. I think the first and last pics are my favorite. Hopefully I can get these in HQ form soon, at which time they will promptly be added to Janet’s gallery on BrownSista.net.
