Val Spring 2010

Planet Janet (and we just live on it)

Someone should tell the_23_club about the picture on Janet Jackson's web site in the upper left corner (if it ain't there when you get there, wait for it; the pictures blink and change) that shows JJ's torso, clothed in a white bikini top and underpants that have a big black 23 printed on them (with way more realistic-looking abs than the ones that Miss Carey has "designed" on her torso separating the two). Yeah, I don't get it either, but it's a big deal to them.

Now that I think about it, May 2006 marks 23 months since I saw Fahrenheit 9/11. Pretty much the worst 23 months of my life and I wish I was exaggerating. Maybe I can kind of relate to that group after all...

Anyway -- Hey! Janet turns the big 4-0 in a couple of weeks. Good for her! Hey, still rich, still pretty, still in love; that's more than a lot of people have these days.

I wish people would stop tripping about JJ and the weight already. People, Janet has always eaten and gained weight between albums. Ebony magazine has the pictures, dating back to the 80s. A few months before a new CD is to be released, JJ always goes on some insane diet--which may or may not land her in the hospital for a few days--so that when it's time for the CD to drop and for the first music video to be shot, she's slim and trim Miss Jackson again. Ya'll just don't know.
