Jermaine Dupri Dishes On Janet Jackson’s Comeback & Clarifies Mariah Carey Comments

janet-mariah-jd

Though fiercely private, Janet Jackson went all sorts of public with her relationship with hitmaker Jermaine Dupri.

The couple famously dated for almost six years before calling it quits in 2009 – the same year Jackson’s brother Michael passed away.

In the time since, both have remained coy about the split and – more broadly – about each other.

Still, with their names very much intertwined, it was little surprise that Dupri was quizzed about his iconic ex – who has since married Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana – while doing the promo rounds at the 2015 BET Awards. Especially given that she was the night’s MVP after receiving the the Ultimate Icon honor.

What did he have to say about Ms. Jackson while speaking with Hot 97‘s Nessa? Find out below, where Dupri also dishes on his blunt approach to working with Mariah Carey.

Jermaine Dupri Slams Ciara:  “‘I Bet’ Is a Complete Rip Off of Usher’s ‘U Got It Bad!'”

ciara-i-bet-thatgrapejuice

It looks like hitmaking producer Jermaine Dupri feels like his ‘Stepped On My Js’ co-star Ciara did just that to him with her recent hit ‘I Bet.’  As the song continues its ascent up charts on the heels of its video, more and more people have begun likening it to Usher‘s 2001 megahit ‘U Got It Bad’ – a similarity Dupri, the song’s producer, says he immediately noticed.

Now, as the dust surrounding Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s 2013 hit ‘Blurred Lines’ settles (see: major legal loss over its copyright infringement of Marvin Gaye‘s ‘Got To Give It Up’), J.D. has taken to Billboard to tell Cici she’s got to give “it” up too – “it” being credit for ripping off his song.

See his fiery quote below:
