Janet Jackson On Today Show

Published: Monday 22nd Mar 2010 by Sam

Pop royalty Janet Jackson stopped by The Today Show a few moments ago to promote her new movie ‘Why Did I Get Married Too’, along with the film’s driving force Tyler Perry. Check out their interview above…

Pretty standard-fare interview; that said, I can’t wait to see the film! Few folks know, but Janet actually filmed ALL of her parts after the passing of her brother Michael, so we can expect an authentic emotionally-charged performance from the 43 year old.

Tidbit: Janet seems to be ageing backwards. She looks amazing!

    Oh they mean Money Bats. We call them that but they are moths, beautiful in deed. Those are good luck in the Bahamas. You make a wish on them and they bring you prosperity. I think this is going to be a good movie. Janet and Alicia use that word space a lot. I like it better than place.

  16. ARTISTK March 22, 2010

    JANETTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I COMMEND HER FOR BEING ABLE TO GO ON SO SOON AFTER THE LOSS OF MICHAEL. I DO NOT BELIEVE SHE IS USING MICHAEL’S DEATH AS A PROMOTIONAL TOOL BECAUSE THE MOVIE WAS ALREADY IN PRODUCTION AND WAS SLATED FOR AN APRIL RELEASE. SO HATERS PLEASE SHUT THE F*** UP! JANET IS AN ICON IN HER OWN RIGHT!

  17. Fat, drunk, and ugly, Mariah! March 22, 2010

    @ beydabess you probably lost your hearing listing to people who scream all the damn time! Ho sit down!

  19. BEYDABESS (DA REAL ONE) March 22, 2010

    AM I DA ONLY ONE WHO THINK TYLAR PERRY LIPS LOOK LIKE A V*****?

  20. MJfan March 22, 2010

    Janet has never capitalize off MJ phenomenal career, in fact she has always done things the polar opposite of her brother. And to say that she is capitalizing off MJ death, is an insult. She was filming the movie, when he passed suddenly, so she flew back to L.A. to be with the family and mourn. 2nd. She has been in films and t.v. series before his death. From Good Times, Fame, Different Strokes. Her music career skyrocketed before MJ died. Prior to MJ death Janet had already sold 150 million records, broke records, sold out concerts. So, how is she capitalizing off MJ’s death? Janet is an icon. So, if people want to ask her about her brother, or if she feels the need to talk about HER BROTHER, than so be it. Just like Janet said at the Soul Train Awards, To you, Michael was family, but to us he was family. In other words, he was there blood, not ours, people really need to stop acting like MJ belong to us, we are just fans, we didn’t own him, nor knew the real MJ, we knew the pop singer image. People kill me always going hard on MJ family and friends, like MJ was a brother to them.

  21. Chaz March 22, 2010

    @ ANON shut the hell up!!! Janet did the same promotional blitz for the first Why Did I Get Married as well as The Nutty Professor II back in 2000! She was already in pre-production for this film when MJ passed so your argument is invalid. FAIL b**** so slither back under your rock until the rainy season returns!

  22. Its Me Again March 22, 2010

    mjfan

    I think the quote was “To you Michael was an icon, but to us he was family”

  23. Hazel March 22, 2010

    DAMNIT JANET. She looks so phenomenal. Enjoyed the interview.

  24. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut March 22, 2010

    @MJfan thank you! Tell these idiot haters what’s up! People who aren’t even fans and haven’t even followed Janet’s career always talking s***, like they know her ass personally or something. GTFO with that b*******, ANON!

    Anyhow, she looks absolutely flawless. God I can only dream of looking as good as her when I’m in my 40’s. She needs to hurry up with this album, I’m salivating over here.

  25. truth March 22, 2010

    JANET STILL FAT!! NO DOUBT SHE HASNT LOST 20 LB GAIN FROM THE LAST INTERVIEW ON GEORGE LOPEZ. SHE BETTER STAY CLOTHED!

    WOW, TYLER’S MOM LOOKS LIKE A MAN. WUT A T*****!!!! EXACTLY LIKE TYLER…

  26. algie March 22, 2010

    it goes to show you that humbleness will take you far in life.kudos to you janet

  27. SEAN2010 March 22, 2010

    TRUTH

    IF YOUR GONNA THROW SHADE AT JANET. MAKE SURE YOU DO IT RIGHT!

    SHE WAS NEVER ON GEORGE LOPEZ SHOW. SHE WAS ON JAY LENO AND HOW THE F*** COULD SHE LOSE TEN POUNDS IN 3 DAYS? SIT DA HELL DOWN

    YOU EPIC FAIL OF A HUMAN BEING!

    JANET IS NOT FAT SHE IS THICK LIKE A REAL BLACK WOMAN SHOULD BE PUNK!

  28. CONVERSATION CHAMBER March 22, 2010

    Janet hasn’t sold anywhere near 150 million albums MJFan. LOL please.
    I won’t go so far to say that she’s using MJ’s death (intentionally) to get more press, but I have noticed her popping up a whole lot more on TV since after it happened.

  29. SEAN2010 March 22, 2010

    1. JANET SOLD OVER 100 MILLION ALBUMS! SO YOU SAYING SHE ISNT CLOSE TO SELLING THAT WAS DUMB.

    2. JANET WAS WORKING ON A BOOK, MOVIE, AND ALBUM B4 MJ DIED.

    3. MJ DIED ALMOST A YEAR AGO.

    4. JUST CAUSE MJ DIED DOESNT MEAN JANET HAS TO STOP HER CAREER.

    WOULD YOU STOP YOUR LIFE OR QUIT YOUR JOB CAUSE OF YOUR MOTHER OR SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY DIES? NO YOU WOULDNT.

    5. JANET DOESNT BRING UP MJ NOR DOES SHE WANNA TALK ABOUT HIM.

    6. SHE HAS A MOVIE COMING OUT, DO YOU EXPECT FOR HER TO NOT PROMOTE IT? THATS JUST DUMB

    7. JANET BEEN DOING THIS WAY B4 MJ DIED. SO LETS NOT ACT BRAND NEW NOW. CAUSE WHEN HE DIED. SHE WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND TILL THE VMAS AND FOR HER NUMBER ONES (GH) MONTHS N MONTHS LATER.

    ITS 2010 NOT 2009. GET WITH THE PROGRAM. DUMB ASS F***.

  30. y2kmalone March 22, 2010

    dead at the people trying to throw shade at Janet you fail

  31. Fat, drunk, and ugly, Mariah! March 22, 2010

    LOL! Well said Sean!

  32. CONVERSATION CHAMBER March 22, 2010

    ::: repeating :::
    Janet has not sold anywhere near 150 million albums.

    Janet Jackson / Dream Street = 500k
    Control = 14 million
    Rhythm Nation = 14 million
    janet. = 20 million (although I dispute this figure, but I’ll go with it)
    Design of a Decade = 6 million
    The Velvet Rope = 10 million
    All For You = 7 million
    Damita Jo = 2.4 million
    20 Y.O. = 1.2 million
    Discipline = 900k
    Number Oness = 275k

    Total = 76.275 million albums sold.
    Short of 100 million, and well short of 150 million.

  33. Detail March 22, 2010

    TRUTH,

    That is so rude. That man mother has passed and you talked so negative about her. I will pray for you.

  34. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut March 22, 2010

    I believe in total record sales (albums AND singles), that figure is at 100 million. Which would make sense. Albums alone she’s just over 75 million, and additionally she’s released some very successful singles.

  35. SEAN2010 March 23, 2010

    ONCE AGAIN YOUR NUMBERS ARE WRONG.

    1. EVERYONE KNOWS JANET CATALOG ISNT EVEN UPDATED SO LETS NOT EVEN GO THERE.

    2. THERE IS NTH TO DISPUTE WITH THE JANET. ALBUM THAT WAS HER PRIME.

    PLUS

    RIAA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> your opinion

    DAMITA JO IS 3.6 MILLION SWEETIE.

    LOL LET ME STOP CAUSE I DONT FEEL LIKE SLAYING YOU RIGHT NOW.

  36. SEAN2010 March 23, 2010

    BILLBOARD, RIAA, SOUNDSCAN SAYS SHE SOLD OVER 100 MILLION.

    CASE CLOSED.

  37. CONVERSATION CHAMBER March 23, 2010

    Damita Jo hasn’t sold anywhere near 3.6 million. Get real. Here’s my source!

    Furthermore, Janet has not sold 100 million albums…and I challange you to present the RIAA/Billboard/Soundscan source that cites her having sold that much. 😉 Of all her contemporaries (Mariah, Madonna, Celine, Whitney), Janet has sold the least amount of albums. And since your attitude is so f***** up, I’ll further twist the nice by pointing out that acts like Backstreet Boys, Britney and Eminem have all even sold more than her in all, and in less than half the time.

    Deal with it and move on. LOL@ how in the last few years Janet fans have been so desperate to get her in the 100 million club that they lie, embellish and make excuses (like her catalogue isn’t updated). Go shovel that to someone else. Not buying it on this end.

    Case Closed now.

    *snicker*
