Janet Jackson is a legend, and I’m pretty sure the only way her career could possibly enter exploding gasoline fire territory would be if she suddenly let Marlon Jackson write her songs and Jermaine Jackson style her hair. But according to multiple sources that spoke with the Huffington Post, CBS chairman and CEO Les Moonves was heck-bent (can you say Hell on CBS?) on making sure Janet Jackson never worked again after Justin Timberlake exposed her nipple at the 2004 Super Bowl.
Few things can send tempers flaring into third-degree burn territory faster than a fight over WiFi. I’ve seen friendships destroyed by the words, “Just give me the fucking password for Pretty Fly For A WiFi.” It’s a tense situation, and one that Janet Jackson is now intimately familiar with. The Blast claims to have some more information on what led Janet to call 911 on her ex Wissam Al Mana on Saturday night, and it might have all been started because Wissam wasn’t being generous with the WiFi.
Janet Jackson and her ex-husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, share custody of their 1-year-old son Eissa. It was Wissam’s turn to have Eissa this weekend, and their daddy-son time was interrupted by a surprise visit from the police.
This past weekend when Janet Jackson won the Icon award at the Billboard Music Awards, many members of the Jackson clan were in attendance including Prince Michael, Katherine and Rebbie Jackson. Michael’s ghost and a whiff of the lingering odor of moldering leather that proves the continuing existence of Joe Jackson, were also there. Not there; Paris Jackson. According to People, it sounds like Paris got dropped off the family text thread (lucky! I wish my family would boot me from mine. My campaign of exclusively responding with RuPaul’s Drag Race GIFs that nobody understands is not working!).
The Billboard Music Awards were last night and if the red carpet is any indication, it lived up to it’s name because most stars looked as bored as can be. With very few exceptions, most of the night’s looks were uninspired and devoid of whimsy. Nick Jonas (above) looks like he just showed up for his shift at Applebees and still needs to go get his flair from his locker and take a quick shot at the bar before getting started. He’ll be with you in a minute, ok?
For me, the Billboard Music Awards have always been the Jan Brady of all awards shows trying desperately to be as pretty as Marcia (The Grammys) or as cute as Cindy (The AMAs). Well, toss that tacky afro wig in the trash and try again bitch because it ain’t happening. However, there was a bright spot during last night’s broadcast when Billboard decided it was time to embrace diversity by awarding the legendary Janet Jackson with its Icon Award. And before she accepted she treated us all to a performance that was a perfect blend of “Get it Janet!” and “Girl slow down before you break something!”
