New Janet Jackson Photo Shoot & Interview

Janet Jackson Covers Prestige Magazine 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.

  1. Not feeling the wig. She looks like michael in the 2nd pic. I love her though and it is good to see her again. Don’t go no where Janet :banana:

  2. That is the same hairstyle she sported for her performance on the Billboards Awards in 2006. I like it on her.

  3. NOT FEELIN’ THE HAIR :hmph: BUT THE PHOTO’S ARE O.K

  4. Janet’s so damn HOT!
    don’t forget to check out her new joint on iTunes!

    “FeedbacK” is the *ish :koolaid:

  5. Janet looks great. Let’s hope Janet reclaims her throne in 2008. You go girl.
    :thumbsup:

  6. Please HUH…Janet was doing this way before Rihanna was even potty-trained.

    And she looks damn good too. I love her!

  7. it was about time real music came back to the stage
    teach them jay!!!

  8. How old is Janet now? I’m not exactly the biggest Janet fan, but as far as her look, she is killin these young chicks right now.

  9. “but as far as her look, she is killin these young chicks right now” i am telling you!!!some chick in the industry look so old compare to her its crazy!!!!

  11. ^^this was a joke right????? janet is not real music, she cant sing and “feedback” is garbageplus is she plastic n old

    ^^^^so being in your forty makes you old Now? Don’t hate she looks good. If it wasnt for her this younger genration wouldnt have nothing to copy. She might not can sing like Whitney and Mariah but she deseve respect like them because she can hold her own on stage. Lets not start. See people think of age and let them hold them because of it. When all the white Rockers and othets sit down then say something until then HUSH. She havent been following anybody us trend she being doin her. Which why she is still around because Honestly she has a real Love for what she does. People has being trying to break her for the longest and she is a strong sista. I love it when people like to bring up surgery with her but not with every other Black Celeb that has did it. No one know the reason why but some of yall is acting brand new. Janet said it herself that she had surgery done. what Michael and Latoya done don’t put that on her. Plus she looks good your choice but don’t hate give Janet her props.

  12. [quote comment=”18426″]ONE WORD: RIHANNA[/quote]

    You must be like 12. Because all adults should know there is nothing knew about the bob/asymetric style. Please do your homework.

  13. ONE WORD: RIHANNA

    uuh NO. The Hair been rock since the 60’d all the way thru Now. Rihanna aint thr first nor is Janet. it been alot of other artist that has been they aint around no More. That hairstyle been done numerous of times. Janet wore it early 90’s late 80’s too. So please NO

  14. Yall are right! That hairstyle has been rocked before. Janet looks great though… a little thick in that first pic, but she still has “it.” I just hope this time around, she makes a killing in the music industry. I must admit, the feedback single is not my style, but wish her the best anyways.

  15. Are you people INSANE?! Janet and I are the same age and let me tell ya, she still can’t sing. We were saying it in the eighties when she first came out and nothing has changed. Except her music. Yes music has changed over the years but this is why she fell off from the begining. We all know she she’s a “Freak Mama”, she’s made that perfectly clear on all of her albums. But man I get tired of hearing her singing about “Sexin” all the time.Folk’s tired of hearing it. That’s why her records haven’t been selling. She wants to be the”Black Madonna” sooooooo bad. Take some of your lyrics that have significant meaning from your Control record, sing a little slower and make some party music. Make some music that deals with todays issues and leave your sex life to “Lil J.” at home. Also speak up in your interviews. Stop acting like you are this shy and innocent girl! Womanup!!You still FINE though. 🙂

  16. wtf del.lol

    Rhythm Nation itself targets whats going on in the world today. so pls. and JANET JACKSON WILL NEVER EVER TRY TO BE LIKE A BLACK MADONNA NON OF HER STYLES HER LYRICS NTH OF WHAT JANET DOES IS A COPY FROM MADONNA.LOL. PLEASE. ARE YOU 4REAL. AND IF PEOPLE BEEN SAYING SHE COULDNT SING SINCE THE LATE 80S HOW COME CONTROL SOLD 10 MILLION, RHYTHM NATION SOLD 13 MILLION AND JANET. ALBUM SOLD 17 MILLION AND VELVET ROPE – 20 Y.O SOLD 8-3 MILLION. I SAY FOR A PERSON WHO CANT SING MORE POWER TO U CUZ DATS DAMN GOOD. SHE STILL A ICON AND A LIVING LEGEND. GET ON LIL KIM OR KHIA WHO ALWAYS TALKS ABOUT SEX. SEX SELLS JANET IS 41 YEARS OLD SHE CAN TALK ABOUT ANY DAMN THING SHE PLEASES. AND MOST OF HER ALBUMS ARE NOT ABOUT SEX. IT TARGETS MAINLY LOVE, THEN SHE TALKS ABOUT HOMOFOBIA, RACISM, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, VIOLENCE, POLITICS. AND SHE EVEN TARGETS HERSELF. JANET TALKS ABOUT ALOTTA TOPICS. AND JANET CAN SING IF U WANT I CAN NAME SONGS AND TELL U WAT PERFORMANCES TO WATCH WHILE SHE DANCING HARDCORE OR SITTING DOWN SINGIN A SLOW SONG WITHOUT LIP SYNCIN. SO DONT SPEAK FOR EVERYBODY ELSE SAYIN JANET CANT SING THATS U AND UR FRIENDS. EITHER WAY JANET IS THE SHIT AND ALL THE OTHER YOUNG FEMALES INCLUDING BEYONCE AND EVEN INCLUDING KEYSHIA COLE (HAVE U NOT SEEN THE VIBE COVER) NO ONE IS TRYIN TO COPY WHITNEY,MARIAH,PATTI OR ANYBODY ELSE. SO JANET DO UR THANG IN 2008 “DISCIPLINE” THESE HOES.

    I SAID WHAT I HAVE TO SAY AND IM DONE. SAY WHATEVA ELSE ABOUT ME OR JANET MAKE SURE U HAVE THE LINK AND ACTUAL PROOF.

    P.S THE HAIR IS NOT A WIG.LOL.

  17. Oh please! I hope this hair style will appear only on this magazine and not for her new album. My Mama Janet is always a trendsetter! she doesn`t have to follow Rihanna`s style.

    But still, i love her though even with this hair style.

  18. To del

    She makes up for it with Dancing and putting on a great show. See when u have a real love for something and a pssion for something and you are doin what u are suppose to be doin with your life its all good. You can’t win them all but say what u want it must be something about her that u took time out to write a whole speach about why u don’t care about and Janet don’t no u or care so much about u either. See people love to hide behind computers and say one thing. You wouldnt dare say that too her in person. It must be somethin u like about her that you give her so much of your time. If you don’t care why even look at the pictures and comment move on. It a shame u say u and Janet are the same age but after all these years Why should u care to even comment.She must be doing something right plus she can HOLD a note don’t hate. You are doin what u suppose to do anyways so thanks. You just shows that after all these years Janet still got something that people love to talk about. You and i would love to have her bank Account. For one person who dislike her is another one who loves her. Aint like janet at home crying over you and over comment. Janet has did her that why so many people love to copy her. You can go so love trying to be someone. It shows something about Janet because people still love to talk about her and people still pay attention to her. It is something about Janet why she is still here. Janet appeals to people and there is still people checking for her. Janet has fans that love her. Its your right not to care for her. You have to give it to her that she looks good and she is a legend.You are one in a million who don’t care but everyone negative is what is keeping her here. I love me some Janet. She has million of site with fans that love her. I love how people love to judge but nobody is there 24-7 to know exactly whats going on. Janet can hold her own on stage don’t HATE…

  19. I love Ms Jackson!!!!! Janet was one of the first sista to wear many of the hair styles that are still being copied today. She is one of the first sistas to change her hair styles on a regular basis. No she is not a Whitney (which Whitney is no longer Whitney these days,,,AMEN) nor a Mariah but she can sing and she is a damm good performer. One thing I will always say about her is that she gives it her all. Her main goal is to give her fans a good performance. And if she was not a good singer, I don’t think she would have ever gotten that MULTI-MILLION $$$$$ deal she received years ago. :bowdown: :bowdown:

    Time change and so do the people. We still love her and I personally want to see her back on top of the music charts again. I know over the years she became very sexual but that comes with life. At least she was not doing her shows half-naked to fill an audience. :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    Give the sista some credit…….Do Ya Thang,,,,Ms Jackson!!!

  20. And another thing,,,,lets see if some of these tired young ladies today will still be around in the music business 20 years from now….
    I think not!!!!
    I do think that Mary J will be around for a very long time as long as she keeps doing what she is doing now!!!!
    Bey on the other hand, is one of the ones that may burn out to soon. She is good at what she does, but sometimes I think her father is pushing her into too much to fast. I hope she will be around in 20 years and look as good as Ms. Jackson does.
    Just my opinion!!!
    :brownsista:

  21. Voice, u are funny. Beyonce just can’t leave your thoughts, can she?

  22. some fo you are clearly badly informed and ignorant which is a deadly combination
    i would like to know how many artists today can be 40 and release an album that goes platinum like her last album?(20 y.o), make your research if you dont believe me
    janet has sold over 100 million records as a solo artist !!!!!
    please let thge numbers speak for themselves

  23. Janet is not plastic (whoever posted that) Yes she has had a nose job but, there are other artists who did that too. I won’t name them. As far as her cheek bones, all of the Jacksons have those since childhood. Some times people are so hard on her, We all know her singing isnt’ the best, she’s even said that. But she is a great entertainer who has greatly influenced dance and overall artists. She is great, let’s give her the props she deserves. Her music never lost its power, its only been boycotted b/c of the superbowl incidend which was blown out of proportion.

  24. look kids…lets be real..i am prob one of the biggest fans of janet out there..but ole girl needs to realize that she is now 40…the hooker look….is not for janet…i adore her and i feel she has way to much class to be so desperate..to take on the image and music she is doing…the song feedback is a week britney sphears reject song…and ole boy DOGCHILD….SHOULD HAVE DONE BETTER FOR JANET…the comment about a woman’s monthly? come on now…and the photos look trashy fo r janet she is way to respected to have to stoop so low..forgive me to all who think i am being harsh…anyone who knows me will tell you i defend j till the end…but she has some terrible advisers in her corner…right now.. janet needs to get back to jimmy jam and terry lewis with a quickness…!!!!!!!

  25. I DONT THINK THE PIX ARE TRASHY AT ALL. KNOWING JANET THIS IS COVERED UP FOR HER.LOL.

    AND EVEN IF SHE DID WORK WIT JIMMY AND TERRY WHICH THIS IS HER FIRST TIME DOING SO(CHANGE IS GOOD) SHE WILL STILL DRESS THE WAY SHE WANTS TO DRESS. JANET SAID IT HERSELF SHE IS NOT DESPRATE AT ALL. SHE DOESNT FEEL COMPITION WIT ANYONE. AND SHE SO DAMN HUMBLE SHE EVEN SAYS SHE DOESNT THINK SHE IS THE BEST SINGER IN THE WORLD NOR IS SHE THE BEST DANCER. DATS HOW HUMBLE SHE IS SHE DONT EVEN RELIZE HOW GREAT SHE IS. I LOVE JANET.

  26. Janet does look trashy. At this age she should show a little more respect for herself :hifive:

  27. To Joy….all you say is so very true of janet…I have followed and loved her dearly as a singer and actress since the Good Times days…and realistically….who of any of us making these comments would ever be able to say anything to janets face..you are taking comments the wrong way…i don’t think one person who said anything about Janet means it in a hateful way…or to be mean…its just that when you have followed this wonderful ICON of entertainment for more than 20 years…..you get used to her style and class and virtue…thats all..and well FEEDBACK..is not her in my opinion..she has always been real her music has actually gotten me through some rough spots in my life..thats wat made janet so real..she express her real life situations in her music…and at the same time help many of her fans..get through similar situations…all i am sayin is well FEEDBACK..is a lil on the rouchy side..for my girl J….SHE IS THE EPIDOMY of class and professionalism to me…just hate to see her become like so many of the young female singers today she pathed the way..and should continue to be a unique example….so God Bless her..I wish her NOTHING BUT LOVE AND HAPPINESS…as i feel most of us do that are as you say “behind our computers” how else can you express your opinions ..it appears you are behind yours also….. 🙂 much love…..

  28. I love how people are “badly informed”, “ignorant”, and “kids” just because they don’t like Janet Jackson. :lol2:

  29. Hooray for all of those who knows what Ms J is all about.!!!!!
    If I looked as sexy as she does in her photos I would dress the same way.
    AMEN :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:
    How many 40 year old women can show their abs?? She is a beautiful black lady, and she is trying to teach you over zealous young people something. If an artist is still around making music 20 years after their first megahit; then this is and ICON DIVA!!!! You need to recognize and give RESPECT when it is due and VERY WELL EARNED!!!!!
    I’m just saying………………… :brownsista:

  30. no one can diss jay and talk about any other entertainer out there like they better that is being ignorant but since it’s all a matter of taste i guess no one can be wrong 🙄

  31. I love Janet and think that her pictures are absolutely gorgeous :bowdown: . Stephanie someone above is using my screen name again and have done so on several posts and trying to give me a bad reputaiton on this site. This is not funny this is immature and ignorant. By the way everyone this is the original Real Talk not whomever that is above trying to post under my screen name and talk nasty about Janet.
