Pop icon Janet Jackson flashes her trademark grin in this new promotional shot for fur firm Blackglama. As ever she looks stunning, as does her new ‘do.
The 44 year old superstar has signed on as the face of the company’s ‘What Becomes A Legend Most?’ advertising campaign, which is set to debut in September, and will feature in (among others) Vanity Fair, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. What’s more, Jackson’s Blackglama ad will be erected as a prominent Billboard (in two major locations) to overlook New York’s famed Times Square!
You can also check out a behind the scenes video of the ‘Feedback’ singer being photographed for the campaign below. Noted photographer Rocco Laspata snapped Jackson in New York following her show-stopping American Idol appearance…
JANET COULD GET IT LOL
CIARA- BASIC INSTINCTS IN STORES AUGUST 17TH!!!!!!!!!
I like Janet, but her nostrils look wide as f***.
What becomes a Legend most?… A diva that has always been in “Control”, dancing to her own “Rhythm” in our “Nation”, with a name as elegant as “Janet”, with fans standing behind “The Velvet Rope”, because she performers “All For You”!
That’s my girl. Looking fabulous! I really gotta say this. If we keep this promotional engine going, and by the looks of it, its not stopping anytime soon, Ms. J is going to need to get back in the studio and get a new album PRONTO! And a GREAT one at that! Not only will she need to step it up a bit to capture the minds, imagination, love and dedication of her late brother’s fan base (any good label/manager should be thinking the same thing!) but if I know Jan, the last few albums have been her most relaxed in years. But with the world finally behind her again, I think it’s time for Jan to make it POP, glitter, and dazzle for this next one. Lets get back to concept and storyline, and bring the stage back to life (as where ticket sales are showing, people are just not that interested in LIVE shows to go and shell out almost 200 bucks per seat) and show the world that JANET JACKSON IS A LEGEND! xxo
Her beauty is heart stopping. She never ceases to amaze me. Way to go Jan!!!!!
WOW, she looks amazing, but we want some new music ASAP!
JANET IS THE QUEEN!!!
why is it when janet does photo’s u say “stunning” but when madonna does them u say “photoshop”. That sounds very very RACIST to me. Janet looks JUST as old and haggardly as Madonna…yet the black woman gets the praise of “stunning” …..*side-eye*. I’m really starting to question the character behind this site.
All hail the Queen.
No, seriously…. bow down muthafka!
Where are PETA??????????????????????
@BEYSBETTER you must be kidding if you think that Janet looks anything like Madonna! She is 44 years old and looks younger than someone half her age! But it’s cool stay mad…green is a good color on you!
ICONIC. NUFF SAID.
JANET IS THE BADDEST CHICK IN THE GAME, ESPECIALLY AS A BLACK WOMAN, SHE SHUTS IT DOWN. SHE INSPIRES ME TO BRING THE S***. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE OTHER BLACK FEMALES IN HOLLYWOOD, BUT SHE IS BY FAR THE BESTEST. SHE IS BEYOND THE QUEEN OF POP, JANET IS THE QUEEN OF ALLURE . AND PLEASE DON’T SAY THAT BEYONCE IS ON OR ABOVE JANET, JANET IS IN A LEAGUE OF HER OWN. IF SHE DOESN’T PLAY EARTHA KITT, I WILL START A PETITION, CAN NOBODY EMBODY EARTHA LIKE MS. JANET ‘ I RUN THIS ” JACKSON.
JANET IS THE ESSENCE OF GLAMOUR, I CAN TOTALLY SEE WHY SHE HOOKED UP WITH THAT FINE ARAB, I DON’T THINK A BLACK MAN COULD FULLY HANDLE HER, WITHOUT BEING INTIMIDATED. SORRY, BUT BLACK MEN ARE INTIMIDATED BY S*** WOMAN. BTW: I WANT TO BE JANET WHEN I GROW UP.LOL
@BEYSBETTA. go to any other site such as perezhilton and dlisted.com and they almost always talk about Madonna and her photoshopped cover shoots. Janet actually looks better in person believe it or not.
@ROYALKEV. ….. with an alter ego as sassy as “Damita Jo” still looking “20 y.o” and needing no “Discipline”
@ Janet fan30, I like! … It’s all the Design of a (few) Decade(s).
@ Beysbetter, you have to be kidding? Madonna has taken a few really nice photos lately. I can’t remember for which magazine it was, but it was nice. She is much older than Janet(8years actually) and in all honesty before the complete makeover (after the plastic surgery when her “Evita” era wrapped ) her appearance was quite homely. She looked pretty dried up. If surgery was required(facelift) to enhance her beauty, I doubt she would have any objection to being photoshopped or that it wouldn’t be necessary with her being at an disadvantage.
I love JJ! Thanks for posting TGJ!
PETA JUST CAME AFTER JANET WITH AN IGNORANT ASS MESSAGE READ BELOW via B*****:
“It’s amazing what celebrities will do when their careers are on a downslide, but we didn’t think that Janet was this desperate…Surely she knows enough about suffering and unjustified death to recognize that both occur in the production of a fur coat.”
They are outta pocket with this s*** here.
What really becomes a legend like Janet is not sinking as low as advertising fur. Oh Janet, I love you girl but this is really tacky. I really thought you had more compassion. Not a good look at all.
it is time for her old selfish a** to retire. i hate her NASTY s** orgy stage act that was put on by Essence. The same Essence that welcomed her NASTY tasteless act, were the same ones who Hated on rappers with black girls dancing. Now these black girls have been replaced by latino ones, who are now working with and marrying our black stars, and the Essence “what about our daughters?” fools say nothing.
i KNOWWWWW NOBODY IN HERE IS TALKING S*** ABOUT MY GIRL. HOLD UP!!! JANET IS BEING HONORED AS LEGEND….RIGHT? OH I THOUGHT SO. SOME OF YOU ALL NEED TO SHUT THE F*** UP AND GET A F****** LIFE YOU F****** HATING ASS B******. SHE WILL NEVER RETIRE. IN FACT, SHE IS REALEASING A NEW ALBUM NEXT YEAR AND IT’S CALLED “SHITTING ON YOU” WHY DON’T YOU COP THAT WHEN IT DROPS ON YOUR FACE.
JANET IS MY HERO AND FOR SOME OF YOU ON HERE TO TALK S*** ABOUT THE QUEEN LEGEND. MAKES NO SENSE TO ME. SHE IS NOT OLD SHE LOOK BETTER THAN YOUR OLD ASS MOTHER’S AND FATHER’S. YOU WISH YOU HAD THE LOOKS LIKE HER AND THE TALENT LIKE HER’S.
JANET IS THE MOST HATED ON! WHY IS THAT? IS IT BECAUSE TRUELY SHE IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL BLACK FEMALE IN THE GAME. IS IT BECAUSE SHE IS A JACKSON? IS IT BECAUSE SHE LOOKS YOUNG AND FRESH. THAT GIRLS CAREER IS NOT TANKED SHE HAS MOVIES ON HER MIND, F*** THE MUSIC INDUSTRY THERE ISN’T ANYMORE MONEY IN THAT S*** ANYMORE.
SHE STILL ACCOMPLISHING THINGS OOH AND ISN’T SHE BEING HONORED WITH THIS AD, I DON’T THINK SHE ASKED FOR THIS.
YES MY B****!!!
YAAAASSSS FOR THE QUEEN ! MISS JANET!
SHE LOOKS AMAZING. CLEARLY THERE IS A VIDEO OF HER BEHIND THE SCENES AS YOU CAN SEE! AND SHE DOESNT NEED PHOTOSHOP NOR DOES SHE LOOKS OLD!
LETS NOT CAUSE IN LOOKS AND BODY JANET>>>>>>>>madonna
JANET LOOKS GREAT! SHE IS A LEGEND & ICON! SHE CAN DO WHATEVER SHE WANTS ON STAGE SLAVES!
SHE CAN DO THE S** ACT (WHICH IS ONLY ONE LITTLE ACT IN HER SHOWS)
CAUSE SHE IS JANET JACKSON AND SHE LOOKS DAMN GOOD DOING IT AND STILL LOOKS CLASSY!
