Hot Shots: Janet At MET Gala

Published: Monday 3rd May 2010 by Sam

Peep Pop superstar Janet Jackson glamming it up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute Gala Benefit earlier tonight. The event was held to mark  the opening of the ‘American Woman’ exhibition.

At 43, Ms. Jackson continues to boast a youthful glow…so much so that she looks a good 10 years younger. Gotta love it…

  2. Ghetto Fab May 3, 2010

    Janet looks stunning! I wonder who she’s wearing? Probably Versace considering her relationship with Donatella. One could only wish they’d look half as good as JJ at her current age.

  18. MJfan May 3, 2010

    Ms. Janet is the BADDEST CHICK IN THE GAME. She needs to hurry up and get the rights to play the LEGENDARY EARTHA KITT. Honestly, she’s the only one living that has the s** appeal, grace and sophistication to play the original hottest chick in t he game.

  19. jmoore May 3, 2010

    Yes, miss Jackson….looking Fab as always! Cant wait for the show at the Essence festival

  21. Next Publicity May 4, 2010

    Like Mariah Scarey… !!!!

    Cleavage , cleavage….and more same old tired cleavage 🙁

  22. Caitlin May 4, 2010

    I love her so much.

  23. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut May 4, 2010

    @Next Publicity, don’t even go there boo. Janet may be showing cleavage, but she always keeps it s*** AND classy at the same time. Unlike Mariah’s fat butterball ass, who is (a) too big to be showing all that skin in the first place, and (b) is notoriously known for dressing like a 21 year old s***.

  24. Kev May 4, 2010

    Wow I’m so pleasantly surprised. Janet looks amazing! I was just noticing how fit alot of entertainers are lately. It reminded me of the Janet I loved from the early 90’s and only a few years back. Now seeing Janet return back to this heavenly goddess she was during those eras(not saying that she doesn’t look appealing more full fugured) is exciting, she’s truly divine! Janet not only looks gorgeous, but she is so s***! She does s*** best! I hope she does get the Eartha Kitt role, however I look forward to her upcoming movie (with Tyler Perry ‘Colored Girls…’, her new book and (what excites me most) a new album. I want Janet to return and make it clear that she’s an remarkable woman, artist and singer! I love her! Team Janet!

  25. B May 4, 2010

    I say GOD DAMN!!!!! YESSSSSSS!!!!! Love this woman!!!! There aren’t any words that can properly describe this woman!!!!!!

  26. CICCONE May 4, 2010

    Oh my, I guess she and JD are “really done!”

    Janet Jackson: Fat, old, ‘a has-been’, forgotten, forsaken,mistaken,over-exposed, exaggerated,’someone’s sister’,desperate,’vocally-challenged’,’woefully-hyped’ ….can someone; ANYONE PLEASE-tell-me, what was Janet’s last hit song, and in which decade? …And wasn’t Janet, pretty-much ‘relegated-to-history’s dustbin’, and’ll ONLY-be-remembered for her “still-shocking Wardrobe-Malfunction?”
    Not to-be-cruel, but let’s-be-real, K? … Let me ask y’all this, if MJ didn’t ‘pass-on’, does ANYONE think, that ANY of the ‘Jackson clan’ would NOW be getting the attention THEY NOW-are, or “rightly-deserve?” …Right …. I thought so! From ‘Patriarch Joe’, to Janet even down-to-the “grandkids,” they’re the very-definition of “dysfunctional!”

    Paul Mooney was right, he called ’em the “Black Adams Family!”

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  32. Janet is Legend May 4, 2010

    @X, Y, “and Z.”

    Her last number one was “Make Me” which came out in November 2009. Which was her 33rd #1 global song!!!! She has sold over 100 million records worldwide.

    Her last movie was in production before her brother died, which has made nearly 60 million and came in at #2 opening wknd. It was the number #1 comedy that weekend as well.

    Janet is legend!!!

    Any more questions?

  33. MJfan May 4, 2010

    Why is it ok for other people to gain attention and notoriety from MJ and not his family? Keep it in the family. People want to act like MJ was so separate from capitalizing off other people. Puhleeze, although that man was the most talented and influential man in Entertaiment, he still used others to keep the limelight on him. Hmm, why did he hang out with Emanuel Lewis(Webster), Brooke Shields, Elizabeth Taylor, and others, MJ used his friends for shine just like you are blaming his family in using him. That’s the life they live in , as far as Entertainment, keep your name out there. MJ said that he was friends with Princess Diana, yet why when she died, MJ held a press coverage during the Diana Coverage, and reporters were asking questions about Diana, he didn’t answer any questions , and just talked about his latest concert.Everyone wants to always act like MJ is untouchable and his family are shady individuals, please, they are about business . Trust, I’m sure MJ would understand.

  34. B. Mike May 4, 2010

    OMG!! janet looks great, but why is everyone trying to act like janet isn’t a star in her own right?! Hell, because of the whole child molestation case, JANET WAS MORE SUCCESSFUL IN THE 90s THAN MJ WAS! Not trying to throw shade at MJ, but janet was very much an icon before he passed, and she will continue to carry that Jackson torch with talent, grace, and (judging by these pictures) BEAUTY.

  35. X,Y,”and Z” May 4, 2010

    @Janet is a legend — Yes, I have one-or-two more (questions):
    1.) Did Tupac not-say that Janet, upon-completion of their movie ‘Poetic Justice’ didn’t even have the common decency to return HIS calls?
    2.) Would you say that her last offering ‘Discipline’ was “commercially accepted?”
    3.) Despite her selling 100 million, was she not dropped from/by her label?
    4.) Would you say the following is accurate:

    “Janet gave her late brother, Michael, two gifts in September. First, the singer paid tribute by performing their “Scream” duet at the MTV Video Music Awards; then she premiered the “Off the Wall”-inspired dance track “Make Me,” now a single on her “Number Ones” album due Nov. 17. Her most appealing and high-energy track since the 2001 “All for You,” the song thumps aggressively, with a funky guitar lick driving the rhythm. Its nonstop vamp recalls “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough,” as Jackson puts a new twist on that classic disco number’s chorus. “Don’t stop it baby, don’t stop til you get it up . . . Ain’t nobody else like you/Only you got the moves you do.” “Make Me” isn’t just Jackson’s best dance song in years-it’s a hit that would make her brother proud.” –Michael Menachem (Billboard)

    …Which goes-back-to one-of my-many cogent-points: “No Michael?!? = No Janet!” Also, her “100-million sold World Wide” was-when, in-what-decade? … Since the current-Millennium?

    …Ergo: “Janet as legend?!?!?” ….No, not-while the-likes-of Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Ms. Aretha, Chaka Khan, Grace Jones and Dionne Warwick still-walks ‘among-the- living!’

    Sidenote: I was just listening to NPR today, if anyone is “so-inclined” Burt Bacharach(sp) and Hal David will be on NPR next week. I think the show is called ‘Fresh Air’. Both Gentlemen wrote MANY of Ms. Warwick’s timeless-classics! Go to to get the date/time and you can hear it streamed live – it’ll be WELL-worth-it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. JANET IS LEGEND May 4, 2010

    @MJ fan. I couldnt agree with you more. You have every R& B singer out there doing the moonwalk and slightly imitating MJ, yet people throw the entire family under the bus when they even bring up his name. Janet cant even walk on a red carpet without someone saying she is somehow exploiting her brother’s death. Makes absolutely no sense to me.

    @ X, Y and Z.

    -Janet was a married woman. So why would she keep in contact with Tupac when he had a crush on her? Why would Janet surround someone who was shot every other week and arrested every other day. No disrespect, I like Tupac. But it is what it is.
    -Discipline was a #1 album.
    -She asked to be let go from Island Def Jam because of lack of support from LA Reid. LA Reid is notorious for having issues with female singers including Mariah Carey and Toni Braxton who are also legends. So whats your point?
    -yes, Janet is beyond Legend. Just because you don’t like her, doesn’t mean a 100 million others don’t. With the exception of Whitney, Janet has outsold all of the ladies you mentioned above. And Whitney can’t even sing a Whitney Houston song. Ask all the Aussies and Europeans who are walking out of her concert and demanding refunds.

    I state facts, not opinions. One person’s trash, is another’s treasure. I like Janet, you may like someone else. Neither is to be debated because everyone has their on taste in music, tone of voice, music style, etc.

    -So you base Janet’s entire career off the song Make Me? Okay, Clearly you are a joke.

    This conversation is DEAD.

    Clearly you are a joke.

  38. X,Y,”and Z” May 4, 2010

    @Janet is a legend — But it was YOU who made-mention of ‘Make me’ ; NOT I! As a matter of a fact, those comments, from that Billboard music-journalist, are ‘incomplete’. I omitted parts, where was-said that “Discipline” was INITIALLY#1, but was considered a to be “disappointment,” because the weeks AFTER it’s initial release: “sales “quickly-FELL OFF!”

    …And the fact that YOU “like her” should-not be sole/partial/fractional “criteria!”
    …I’d take Whitney Houston, in her “current condition” AS A SINGER over Janet Jackson – in her prime – ANY DAY; ANY YEAR; ANY LIFETIME; in this one, and in my next lifetime! AT the very-least, I’ll can “sweetly lament the “once-what-was”;”all-THAT-was”; and the “what could-have-been!”

    Janet Jackson’s success, when the “history of contemporary-time is written,” will be seen as the product of the “other-worldly skill set” of the ‘likes of’- flytetyme productions; wondrous PR;and-yes, HER last name: ‘JACKSON’!!!!

    …And we’ve yet-again “circled-back” to my initial-question: as-to-when, in-which-decade/ millennium did Janet Jackson “sell records”? …’Cause, as I previously said, her last-offering, the one YOU MADE REFERENCE: ‘Make Me’ did NOT sell! Yes, it had a strong initial showing, which made it debut at #1, but then “sales quickly fell off!” <<–A direct "Billboard quote!"

    …And could you please "refrain from use-of dramatics" when concluding your posts? …Talking outta the side of your neck;tossing your weave's pony tail; and said-like dramatics, "was-old, when Janet was hot!"

    To X,Y, AND Z,

    Janet Jackson is not a LEGEND but an ICON
    We all know that Janet doesn’t have the same success that she had nine years ago … the type of success that she had is very rare for many stars today. .
    Janet Jackson is not young anymore but trust me she can still entertain better than any new artist today.
    She doesn’t have a strong voice but she has stage presence and talent.
    Janet Jackson has contribute to the pop music like her brother Michael. For example she is one of the few artist that are naturally talent in dancing and entertaining crowds of people . Not too many artist today don’t show that type of talent. but rely on the manipulation of the media. In retrospect i do agree with you that the last name JACKSON did helped her in the music industry but she made it with her own talent .

    Famous last names do not give you natural talent …….. becoming an a performer must come naturally . IF famous last names , good PR , good managing , flamboyant stage productions makes you a legend. All up coming artists would be considered icons or legends. But at the end they are not,….. few artists today are considered Icons

    No one can teach you how to become a Icon … you are born to become one

    In conclusion she has contribute a lot in the music industry just look at the huge influence she has on many female pop and R&B artist today.

    With all respect X Y and Z its your opinion but you must look at the facts and not deny them. She is a icon and will alwaysl be one

    PS : I am not a huge fan of janet but at least i know my legends and give them the respect they deserve

  40. keith May 4, 2010

    @X, Y “And Z”. Obviously your vitriol for Ms. Jackson is designed to stir her fans here up. I, am not moved. You are well within your rights to not care for or appreciate Janet but why even comment AND CONTINUE on a thread specifically about her?

    For every one of you, there are many Janet fans just as for every one of me, who doesn’t like or appreciate Aretha or Dionne, there are many fans. We can all co-exist without intruding into each other’s space.

    I believe if you check the stats, Janet did sell a few records between 1986 and 2004.

  41. X,Y,”and Z” May 4, 2010

    @Mely — X,Y,”and Z” stands, faces ‘Mely’ and ‘Tips Hat’ to ‘Mely’; bows, then makes an exit! …Looks back at ‘Mely, thinks-to-self: NOW-THAT, was one-of-the-most “well, yet-firmly-stated opinions,” I’ve YET-read! X,Y,”and Z” will NOW “watch-for” ‘Mely’s’ posts/comments…!!!!

    @Keith — Huh…???? Sam asked-for ‘thoughts’, I made-post. I don’t get-it! …”Your vitriol is obviously-designed to stir-up her fans?!?” …..Bwahahahahahahahah!!!!! …Dude, it’s not-that-serious! …Now IF “MY-intent” was …”sinister”, BELIEVE-ME: I’d “go-deep!” <<—(pun intentional)

    Janet looks absolutely beautiful! She is glowing and she has always had that pretty smile. XYZ ive read some of you comments on other post and thought u were funny and then you come talking nonsense about Janet now thats not a good look. I mean you have alot of information about someone you seem not to care for. I wouldn’t spend time or energy on someone that i didnt have an admiration for…whats the point! Whether she a Lengend or Icon….she has been doing her thang ever since. Of course she is not as big as far as sale-wise like she use to be but she is still one of the greatest entertainers that ever touched a stage so hate her or love her.

  43. X,Y,”and Z” May 5, 2010

    @XratedforJ — Point Well-taken; my-bad! …But let us hope, for your sake, you harbor no such sentimentalities/sentiment for Rihanna! She’ll be offered “no refuge”;no safe passage”; no rest, nor peace will SHE know! I’ve YET to unfurl-MY-wrath, in-said-regard!

    I never understood how someone could be considered a has been when they have accomplished so much. That’s a slap in the face on their many years of hard work.

    She doesnt have to ever make another record, or ever have another successful song on the radio. Who cares when the last time she had a hit song on the radio. That doesnt take away all that she has accomplished and the many records she has broken.

    I never understood why someone would take the time to write about an artist they dont care about. If i see a post on an entertainer I dont like, or am indifferent about. i simply bypass it.

    I guess there are alot of closet Janet fans out there, are maybe someone who has too much time on their hands.

    In general, i think people are more comfortable with negativity, than just giving someone proper credit/respect of what they’ve done. It seems to be all about what you didn’t do.
