    Actually Hazel she did perform “So Excited” and “Nasty” back in ’06. I cant wait!

  5. Jermaine February 27, 2010

    I saw the new film “why did i get married too” last night. My uncle owns a string line of AMC movie theaters here in Florida, and the reels came in last night. The single “Nothing” is featured at 3 different points in the film. Janet fans won’t be disappointed.

  6. B February 27, 2010

    @Jermaine…tell us about the song. What’s it like? Slow? Midtempo? How does she sound? How’s her performance in the movie? I NEED DETAILS!!!! LOL

    Well I heard that Radio is waiting to see if she sings breathy and inaudible for them to once again pay her no attention…

    Radio have been very very unhappy with her vocals for a long time now. She’s showing no strenght in her voice, instread of her voice getting stronger it has gotton weaker like a whisper…..

    this might be the last album she ever records if she come around and is not impressive vocally..

  14. konvinced February 27, 2010

    Excited! GREAT NEWS!!!

    @ JERMIANE YOUR A LIAR!!!!

    I worked at a movie theater for most of my teen life. There are not reels being distributed to movie theaters yet. And it takes a really long time to load up the reels onto the projector and to take them off again. You can’t store the whole movie on one reel. You have to splice the reels together with equipment when you build it up and unsplice them exactly when you tear them down to put them in the cases.

    If that AMC theater is a real one, then a Thursday night is the most insane night of the week because the projectionist has to tear down the movies that are closing and build up the new movies and load them into the projector. And you can’t start the last movie until the last showing. There is no way there was time to load up the new film and the tear it back down after unless that were in the theater until 6 AM.

    We used to do midnight screenings of new movies. And that was the Friday morning at 12 AM that the movie was opening since they had to load the movie that night. Sometimes it didn’t’ start until 1 AM because it took awhile to load.

    It doesn’t make any sense for Lion’s Gate to distribute this movie over a month before the movie is released. There is a truck that comes on Sunday or Monday that drops off the new movies for Friday and picks up the old movies that closed the Friday prior. The only explanation would be that this AMC is doing an early screening of the film for testing purposes.

    EDIT Whoops for him. When you’re going to start fantasizing and telling people your fantasy is true, you have to do some research. He claims he saw WDIGM2 and Alice In Wonderland. In an AMC theatre.

    Except he’s unaware of the boycott that AMC is doing of Alice in Wonderland. They haven’t even ordered any copies of the movie. They are boycotting it!

    Just Go!! Recently, I found an age-gap site called __Agegaplove.com__ and I met my lover here. He is 9 yeard older than me. It’s a nice place- for Younger Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other. Age gap is- not problem there. You may check out or tell your friends.

Last week she was acused by a bulgarian designer that she stole his ideas for her HOUSE OF DIARRHEA and this week a musician acused her of stealing ideas for her “Bootylicious” song, she said she created the word ROFL, WHY DONT YOU POST THE TRUTH ABOUT THE THIEF? DIVA MY ASS, TALENTED MY ASS, LEGEND MY ASS!!!

  27. bethy February 28, 2010

    ha-ha-ha

    how disgusting Janet is….She used Michael’s sudden death for her comeback very well.She started show herself quickly on everywhere after Michael’s death.She started to perform very quickly,shooted a video,released an album quickly..IVE NEVER SEEN A LIL BIT TEAR ON JANET’S eyes.She never cried for Michael.When Michael died,she started to find new ways for making much money over MICHAEL’s dead body..like his other brothers and sisters.
    Actually she has to pray Michael for making her Janet jackson.If Michael wasnt Michael jackson,SHE WOULD NEVER BE JANET JACKSON!!! CAUSE she is 0.She has no special talent or special voice.She is very simple.
    anyways,,I REALLY WONDER THAT HOW WILL JANET DIE? ? ?

    youre disgusting janett

  28. Jweezy February 28, 2010

  31. Toto Too? February 28, 2010

    BETHY CAN GO EAT A DOG! MAN, DEM HATERS ARE EVERYWHERE, IF BETHY HATES JANET SO MUCH, THEN WHY IS BETHY ON THIS SITE? READING ABOUT JJ? AND MJ DIED LIKE LAST YEAR, PLUS JJ WAS FILMING WDIGM2 WHEN MJ PASSED, SHE GOT THE NEWS WHILE ON SET!! AND OTHER ACTORS WERE TALKING ABOUT HER ANGER OUTBURSTS, WHEN JANET RETURNED TO FINISH DA FILM…. KEEP DANC’N ON DEM HATERS JANET!!!

  32. Chaz March 1, 2010

    @ BETHY b**** fall back!!! Janet was working on the album and movie before Michael even passed so stop trying to make it seem like she was trying to capitalize on his death. In regards to your comment that she is who she is only due to Michael, how then do you explain the failure of Michael’s other brothers and sisters to stake out their own claims at superstardom. If indeed Michael did make Janet a superstar then why did that same effect not work on Rebbie, Latoya, Jermaine, Jackie, Marlon, Tito and Randy? Janet Jackson is a bonafide superstar and icon all in her own right and there is no way that you can convince the world otherwise so STEP OFF!!!

    Well Sean, not to say Jermaine is telling the truth or not, but I as well have worked in the Movie Theater business and happen to be a Projection Manager. The movie does come in reels, or if the theater is updated it’s done thru downloading the movie to the projector. Most likely, this movie is probably 5 or 6 reels long. you can put a movie together in about 1/2 hour. There are times when there is a Premier, the movie will get to you at 5pm to be ready by 7pm and they stay to take it back after the movie is over, and give you about 30 min to take it apart. Now what MAY surprise me is that the movie didn’t come with a lock code, since it is sooo far in advance. At that point the theater has to wait about 2 hrs before the premier to call and get the code unless they figured the code out, some studios codes are obvious. So Jermaine I raise my hand to you if that was the case on seeing the movie already.

    I can’t wait i love janet so much that new single gone be bangin

  35. smokey March 1, 2010

    I just hope it’s not another weak vocal Janet track. If she wants radio to take her seriously and play her music she has to step up vocally, if not she will never make an impact or even get played on radio as regular.

    Everyone is complaing about Instead of Janet vocals getting stronger it has gotten weaker and weaker till she actually whispers when singing…

    What a shame.. she’ s so lazy vocally

  36. smokey March 1, 2010

    I hate to admit it but his is so so true.

  37. Treday March 5, 2010

    Bethy; Why are you commenting on this site? If you are going to hate on Janet, you don’t need to be reading on this article. You can say all you want about Janet, but the truth is that…she’s an icon in her own right. She has nothing else to prove. She is doing the music thang now becuase she likes it; not for “numbers”. So what if her voice is not a power house voice, she has packed arena’s and made people give her a standing ovation whenever she enters a room. She could really care less what you think of her at this moment being that she’s still got money from albums she made over 10 years ago. The woman is paid…she didn’t get all that $$$ for doing nothing…so FALL BACK!..That goes for anyone who want to “hate” on Janet. And yes, I said hate..cause that’s exactly what you are doing.

    Janet ur gonna show everyone this year why u deserve ur success…Knock em dead
