Preview: Janet’s ‘Nothing’ Video

Published: Wednesday 31st Mar 2010 by Sam

Check out this short preview of Janet Jackson‘s video for ‘Nothing’ – the lead single from the soundtrack of ‘Why Did I Get Married Too’. Directed by Tim Palen, the video in its full-form premières tomorrow (April 1st).

Judging by this clip….as much as I support Janet…this is not the business. Still, I’ll reserve full judgement until seeing the video in its entirety.

    PLEASE SHUT UP; WHAT EVER JANET DOES YOU PEOPLE WILL FIND SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT; LET HER DO WHAT SHE FEELS CONFORTABLE DOING; SHE IS IN A DIFFERENT DEMEANOR BECAUSE SHE IS STILL MOANING THE LOSS OF THE KING OF POP; LEAVE HER THE HELL ALONE. IF SHE HAD WALKED OUT WITH ONE OF THOSE BATHING SUITS OR LEOTARD YOU ALL WOULD HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THAT; TYLER PERRY’S CAMP IS PAYING FOR THIS VIDEO; SO MAYBE THEY DECIDED TO GO THE INEXENSIVE ROUTE; I LOVE HER NO MATTER WHAT SHE DOES; JANET HAVE BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT SHE DON’T HAVE TO PROVE HERSELF TO NO ONE; REMEMBER JANET IS THE UNIVERSE AND THESE OTHER ARTIST ARE THE PLANET EXISTING IN JANET’S UNIVERSE.

  17. stan March 31, 2010

    oh god, i love janet, but lmaoooo

  18. Erin Chenault March 31, 2010

    that closeup was NOT a good look. she looked hella mad after seein that clip herself.

  19. MJfan March 31, 2010

    Janet is still mourning her brother Michael, it’s so obvious that she is still upset, look at her on 106& Park today. I love Janet and I’m saying this out of love for her, and I truly understand where she is right now, I lost my mother. Janet should stop performing , doing interviews and take a break. Go somewhere and get her mind right. Even if it takes her a year, she needs to mourn, and working will only delay the ultimate breakdown. Cuz when it comes it’s not going to be pretty. Just retire, her acting is more on point anyways, I’sd say if not take a complete break, than a break from singing. And who knows , maybe MJ liked the wig and the outfit, and she did it cuz he liked it. My heart goes out to Janet, she seems so lost right now, if you pay attention to her lately. MJ was definitely a big part of her life.

  20. Bemusedchicken March 31, 2010

    i LOVE miss j but if she keeps this ish up not only will she will burying her once pure pop legacy but she will be DRIVING NAILS INTO THE COFFIN. the song is utterly stink worthy on ice! i love her. really i do and i want her to return to the throne and have crustina, s****** and the other princess lick her boots. but this ish aint working and it kills me. make me was uh kinda cute but not fierce enough at all.

    janet. come on. next album…really kill it nail it and shut it down. please.

  21. Renee March 31, 2010

    LOL @ Beyoncelover1993. ‘Recession Special?!’ No you didn’t. Nah, not a fan of the clip. Song is nice though. Never really was a Janet fan. Always prefer MJ. However, I do feel Janet needs to take some to mourn the death of her brother. She seems quite out of it, but who are we to judge. I know she once said it was important for her to have the strength of her mother. Janet is strong, but it is okay to take a moment to really pause and let out all of the emotional pain inside. I don’t know. Some people handle grief differently.

  22. STLOUISDON March 31, 2010

    SORRY JANET BABY I LOVE YOU BUT THE WIG DISTRACTS ME EVERYTIME…

  23. Andrew March 31, 2010

    Holy s***..

  24. geronimo March 31, 2010

    we need CHRIS BROWN… wtf was this? mstzzzzzzzzzzz

  25. JONES March 31, 2010

    THis is such a nice song. Hopefully the video gets better. THe wig is NOT good

  26. B March 31, 2010

    Jesus Christ, it was just a clip. You have no idea how it begins or ends, just wait a damn minute.

    I’m reserving judgment til I see the full thing.

  27. PAPARAZZI 4423 March 31, 2010

    KEEP IT JANE KEEP IT NO THANK I DON’T WANT IT IF THIS WAS FOOD IT WOULD BE A COLD HOT POCKET

  28. Me March 31, 2010

    I don’t know why legends don’t just quit while their reputation is intact.

  29. KAMI March 31, 2010

    @The people calling it ‘boring’ –

    Umm..since when was it up to Janet to decide where a music video goes when the movie and budget it belongs to ISN’T hers? Honestly people. You act as though everything is her fault. This isn’t even an actual single from her. This is Tyler’s PR pushing out a music video to help build and fan hype for “Why Did i Get Married Too?” It isn’t up to Janet to decide where they make her stand, tilt her head, the wig or clothes she wears, or so on.

    You guys need to stop blaming Janet for something that clearly wasn’t under her control and wasn’t a single that she’s putting her own money in to promote. Cut the negativity, its still a very nice song. You can’t expect a “CLUB BANGAAA” for a Tyler Perry movie..especially since its meant to be a DRAMA?

    Judge her when she pushes out her own singles.
    Until then, ease it down a bit. A lot of these comments are really unnecessary.

  30. jjlova06 March 31, 2010

    This song is ok, but the vid has to go. I know it is for a movie, but they are using it to hype it up and that is not going to help. That video sucked and the outfit and hair did to. I don’t know why. They could have picked something more sensual to put her in like a nice long silky-like dress or something. Those shoulder pads got to go.

  31. Creamdiggler March 31, 2010

    hmmm….reserving my judgement. *please bring it J!

  32. TRUTH March 31, 2010

    SHE’S DONE!!!!!!!! EPIC FAIL. OBVIOUSLY TYLER PERRY FUNDED THIS POS. HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT MUSIC LET ALONE A MUSIC VID.

  33. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut March 31, 2010

    I’ll wait until the entire video is out to judge it.

  34. Rashaan March 31, 2010

    MAN I am a Janet STAN to the fullest but this outfit and wig is not the business….AWWW man Janet I have got to keep it real…not the best look!

  35. algie March 31, 2010

    can’t wait to see the full video

  36. Gucci March 31, 2010

    I’m going to wait until I see the entire thing but it looks like a snoozer so far.

    I love Janet though. i REALLY hopes she pulls this together. Great song.

  37. MJfan March 31, 2010

    The video should have been like I”ll Will Always Love You, video; Janet sitting in a chair singing, while clips of the movie played in the background. Most importantly, why the music don’t match the lyrics. The lyrics are heartfelt and emotional, so why is it a dance tune, or similar to a dance tune. I love Janet but Jill Scott should have did the single for the movie. Janet , PLEASE TAKE A BREAK AND RELAX. People are saying that we heal differently, but if people pay attention to her facial expressions, her mood, that poor woman is totally drained, my heart is sadden everytime I see her. Jackie and Janet are the only Jacksons I feel for, it’s so obvious that they are wearing their pain on their sleeves. Janet needs a friend to tell her, fuss at her, scream to her, that she needs a break, and stop trying to be strong.

  38. Anthony March 31, 2010

    omg do u know what i like about this clip…….nothing nothing nothing….

  39. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut March 31, 2010

    ^^ You wrong for that, lol!

  40. James March 31, 2010

    Janet this is so embarrassing, sigh.

  41. Caitlin April 1, 2010

    I like the simplicity of it, I don’t see why it’s so bad. It’s a slow song, and really what much can you do with a slow song? That was only 30 seconds of the clip guys, it will get better.
    And personally, I don’t see what’s wrong with the wig. Just sayin’.

  42. WHOE April 1, 2010

    Coming soon… Janet Jackson: “I Don’t Feel Pressure To Sell”

  43. bips April 1, 2010

    well people relax!!!! what do u expect from that kinda of song????that she puts out lasers from her ass????come on guys it’s the song of a soundtrack and plus this a really quiet song geeezzzzz(i’m agree about the wig thought jan baby let it go)

  44. kooper April 1, 2010

    video looks cheap and she looks awful and this is from a die hard janet fan .. the star wars outfit does the beautiful women no justice

  45. MJandJJFAn April 1, 2010

    Get over the wig fgs! People are so pathetic, the wig doesn’t make the video good or bad does it!? Its JUST HAIR!

  46. Keith April 1, 2010

    Gosh, there must not be very many posters on this one that are over 20 years old. Janet looked fine on 106 and we all know she works through her pain as a coping mechanism. Didja consider she may simply be tired as I am sure she is in pre-production for “For Colored Girls” while doing this promo stuff and putting together the New Orleans show?

    As far as the video, I will reserve judgment until the entire clip surfaces. The wig was indeed a poor choice but I don’t mind the clothes at all.

    Regardless, all Janet stans should purchase the song on iTunes/radio, support the film over the weekend and prepare for New Orleans….

  47. LUV-LEE April 1, 2010

    😯

    F*U*C*K EACH AND EVERY LAST ONE OF U WHO HAVE SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT JANET!!!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~JANET IS THE QUEEN!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  48. bobby from bulgaria April 1, 2010

    She looks kinda odd to me…

  49. janetisagoddess April 1, 2010

    Say what you may, but this would never have happned under Rene. He may have been an ass but he knew how to make a video, a song and an entire image POP!

  50. Fred April 1, 2010

    I personally think Janet is working to help to forget the pain of losing her brother albeit she was working on the movie when Michael died she is taking on a lot more projects lately now, more than I have seen from her in years. This video is not to try to get #1 on the charts, or try to break any musical records its just for the movie itself so you people need to chill out. I don’t like the clip I saw so far but I am not going to judge the video right now and even after its made I wont judge it then either because its just a movie promotional video anyway.

    I would just love to see her perform live myself, she still out performs most artists on a stage period even at her age.

    She is a legend and icon she doesnt need to prove anything to any of you or the world she has already done that. just FYI

  51. Puppy Love April 1, 2010

    @Kami

    Thank You!

  52. jess April 1, 2010

    People need to give Janet a break. She loved and respected Michael and he recently passed. Some don’t understand how close they were. Janet & Mike were like one soul existing in two bodies. They were so much alike. The media even thought they were the same person at one point (smfh). Leave Janet alone and let her get on with her life. Some may not like her new songs or videos but she’s still an icon.

  53. BOBBY FROM BULGARIA April 2, 2010

    @ Jess

    No, the media thought that MJ and Latoya Jackson were the same person… :)))
