Janet Jackson is a legend and total badass. And not just for her music. Because I bang with anyone who marries a billionaire, has his kid, divorces him and then runs off into the night with the baby AND the bag. However, waaaaay before that crowning accomplishment Janet has been murdering stages and influencing artists for many years. And I’m not sure why it’s taken this long, but she’s finally being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Stevie Nicks already holds a place in the Honorary Witch Hall of Fame. And I don’t know if there’s a Museum of Capital-L Legends, but if that’s something that exists, then you can be sure to find Janet Jackson’s face in there. But there’s a chance one or both of them will soon find themselves in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Billboard has the list of 2019’s RRHOF nominees, and Stevie and Janet are among those who made this year’s cut.
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!).
