I guess the NFL has had its fill of controversy this season, because People confirms that “good boy” Goldendoodle, Justin Timberlake, will in fact provide the halftime show entertainment at the 2018 Super Bowl on February 4 in Minneapolis. Justin announced the big news last night a video of him and NBC “good boy” chocolate lab, Jimmy Fallon humping each other at dog park with glee.
This news is making me very excited. If that picture above proves anything, it’s that Janet Jackson was clearly at her best, fashion-wise, during the Jermaine Dupri years. Meanwhile, this news is probably making Jermaine Dupri very excited because it’s the first time in a while that his name has been trending and it has nothing to do with being broke.
Janet and Jermaine dated from 2002 to 2009. Four years later she got married to Wissam Al Mana, a relationship which has morphed into a messy divorce and custody battle. According to Bossip, Janet is drying her tears on Jermaine’s shoulder (her poor back must be so sore from bending over that low).
Sources claim that Janet and Jermaine have “recently reunited” and that things are “heating back up.” Janet is currently on her State of the World Tour. Bossip points out that Jermaine was in Los Angeles on Sunday night for VH1 Hip-Hop Honors, and that Janet is scheduled to perform in Anaheim on Saturday.
Janet and Jermaine haven’t been a thing in eight years. I hope it’s not awkward for either of them, especially when it comes to the subject of Jermaine’s giant Janet tattoo. I don’t know if his tattoo still looks the same or if he attempted to make it look less like Janet. But I really hope for his sake that he didn’t. Because literally the only way he could have changed it was to add wrinkles and claim it was a tattoo of Emperor Palpatine, and that’s bound to be an awkward conversation.
The Jackson family’s collection of lawyers might not want to plan any holidays in the next couple of months – er, you know what? Better make it years. Because Janet Jackson is currently on what could potentially be a terrible mess of a custody journey with her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana.
Lo and behold, it looks LaToya Jackson and her magic magnifying glass won’t be needed to solve The Mystery of Janet’s Missing Tour. Against all odds (I’m pretty sure Vegas odds were 1 billion-to-1 that it was actually going to relaunch), Janet Jackson kicked off the first show of her new and improved tour last night. And it wasn’t even a contractually-obligated performance, either. Janet put some Miss Jacksonifyanasty into it!
Janet Jackson Announces Her Return To Touring, But Well, You Better Check That Refund Policy Before Buying A Ticket
While everyone was distracted by the fuckery being served up at the Met Gala last night, Janet Jackson dropped yet another one of her “Announcements From Bed” videos for her fans. I swear, Janet and these POV videos. I’m sorry, Janet, but the only Jackson I want to know what it’s like to be on top of is that hot piece Jermaine.
While sounding exactly like Michael Jackson, Janet started off her video message by telling her brother Randy Jackson (who’s off camera) to shut his mouth after he pretty much called her a fatty fat ass. Then Janet let her fans know that she really did break up with her billionaire husband and they’re handling it in court right now. Once she got that news out of the way, Janet announced that the tour she pressed “pause” on to have her kid, Issa, is back on and will start up again on September 7, 2017 in Lafayette, LA. Hmm… I’m sure this news has nothing to do with that lawsuit from a fan who accused Live Nation of refusing to issue refunds because the tour was “rescheduled.”
Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable World Tour didn’t go so well; she kept postponing shows before flat-out stopping so she could focus on having a baby. Fans who bought tickets to Janet’s alleged lip sync fest were told the tour would resume in 2017 and that they could get a refund if they wanted. Unfortunately, some venues were reportedly not issuing refunds, since the tour was just postponed and not cancelled.
Since Janet appears to be busy with a newborn and a potentially messy divorce, the likelihood of that tour happening in 2017 seems slim. TMZ says one fan has had enough waiting for a refund on a concert that probably won’t happen for a while, and they’ve decided to sue to get it back. Tiana Adams filed a lawsuit against Live Nation accusing them of trying to get out of issuing refunds by repeatedly claiming the tour has been “rescheduled.”
Live Nation continues to be vague about when the Unbreakable tour is set to start up again; their website simply says “Sorry, no shows right now.” Live Nation hasn’t responded regarding this lawsuit.
It sounds like either Live Nation is trying to pull a fast one, or they don’t know what the hell is happening either. Either way, if Tiana doesn’t get her money back, I hope she and everyone else who bought a ticket to Janet’s tour at least gets a piece of paper with a time frame on it of when it might happen. Live Nation doesn’t even have to be specific. I’m sure a simple “Definitely in one of the 12 months in a year between now and 2023” will suffice at this point.
