The Skinny On Janet Jackson

May 4th, 2006 // 15 Comments

She’s looking good. Just in time for her upcoming release of the new album. The song released on her website is not on her forthcoming album, and is not her first single. The new single is called “Call on Me,” and it will be released to radio on June 19th.

Late last week, Janet Jackson placed a count down clock on her website JanetJackson.com. The countdown expired yesterday at 12 noon when fans were treated to a new song by Janet titled “Weekend”.

The new track, which has yet to be confirmed as the lead single for her upcoming cd tentatively titled 20 Years Old, is a throwback to early 80′s dance music. Sampling herself and a host of other dance notables of the 80′s Janet also throws in a healthy dose of that sugary sweet pop she became famous for. The track itself is bananas. Overall it is reminiscent of 80′s dance queen Shannon. Remember that song “Let the Music Play”? Anyways…. if Jermaine Dupri produced “Weekend” then he is right on point in terms of ushering Janet back into the heavy dance era as intended.

    in the 3rd picture right around her belt you can see a stretch mark

    So what you can see a stretch mark. Can’t people say anything nice these days. She looks GREAT. She is near 40 and still looks as good as she did 20 years ago. Go Janet, work it!!!

    The coke diet never ceases to amaze me.

    Wow, I swear that was someone else looking all huge before. She lost weight fast, and looks good.

  5. justMe

    wow. I’m amazed. I see the good old Janet we know from the times of That’s the Way Love Goes, and when she was at her best. I’m so glad she’s coming back and is looking THAT good! I myself can’t see any strech marks. and her being able to wear these jeans shows us all that she’s lost her pounds in a healthy and natural way. Awesome. ‘Weekend’ is just a cover and that’s too bad, but it’s an awesome song though. her beats always make me go crazy. Thnx for posting these.

    Any stretch marks that Janet is left with will fade. Diet and exercise is the best. The healthy look rules any day over the Nicole Ritchie look.

  7. Blah

    Janet’s looking great. Good for her.

  8. Kris

    Thin doesn’t equate to healthy. She looks the same as ever, stressed out, sad and scared.

    Janet would look even better if she hadn’t had so much doggone plastic surgery. I know she wanted a smaller nose, and the job looked great when she was young, but now that she’s aging, it’s making her look older. Her skin looks thinned out.

    Makes me question those fat pics of her..were they really her? First there was a pic of her sunbathing naked, then fat pics a couple of months later…and all of a sudden *wala* she’s thin again. Love her no matter what..

  11. Eton

    No, sorry I disagree she has NOT had that much plastic surgery! Sorry try again.. just her nose I believe and maybe some expensive dental work when she had chipped a tooth years ago… Thats all Go’s gift… and If U followed her throughout her career you’d see that shes always looked the same….. stop hating!!!!!!

  12. MIssNee

    Those sunbathing pics were really old by the time they made the rounds on the blogs.

  13. susiegrl

    YES!!!
    If Janet’s music is going back to her, “Control” and “Rhythm Nation 1814″ days, then I say IT’S ABOUT TIME!!! This is when she was at the top of her game! You go girlfriend!!

    “And my name ain’t BABY! It’s JANET! MISS JACKSON if you’re nasty!”

  14. las

    I wonder what naked body parts we’ll see this time.

    Sorry, plastic surgery on blacks does not look the same as on whites. Blacks have different skin. It scars easily. A good thing-it don’t wrinkle as fast either. Are you sure all Janet had done was her nose? Even so she had extreme nose cutting done. Michael Janet and Latoya got theirs shaved too thin. Janet looks older than a lot of black women her age. Especially without makeup I can tell she’s had surgery. Not hating Janet, just telling truth. Michael already looks scary.
