Hot Shot: Janet Jackson On ‘The Insider’

Published: Monday 12th Dec 2011 by Sam

After wrapping the US leg of her ‘Number Ones Tour’, Pop queen Janet Jackson is set to guest on The Insider this Thursday.

While it’s not known what her Janetsty will divulge, I can only hope it’ll shed some light on her next steps musically. Call us selfish, but her recent successes have – whether she likes it or not – afforded her another lifeline after a string of commercial under-performers; as such, we want her to use it. She needs to hop in the studio with Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Darkchild, and brew up that album we so know she has left in her.

Whatever the case, bring on Thursday.

Your thoughts?

    She also needs to step in the studio with Will.I.Am, Dallas Austin, Kanye and Pharrell and give us an Upbeat Dance/R&B Record like she knows how to deliver.

    Still S***!

    Janet looks great, i’m all for new Janet music but she doesn’t have anything to prove especially with this generation of non-talented artist dominating the charts no need for a legend like Janet to make new music unless she wants to.

  5. Stoney-Brie December 12, 2011

    This is really exciting!!!! wondering she going to talk about! and btw she looks like her mom here, just beautiful!

  6. DMWN December 12, 2011

    She’d have no career if it weren’t for Michael.

    Just remember that.

  7. RIHNATION December 12, 2011

    @ DMWN, SHE HAD TO WORK EXTRA HARD BECAUSE SHE IS MICHAEL’S SIBLING YOU DUMB ASS! IF THAT WAS THE CASE, THEN ALL OF THE JACKSON’S WOULD BE SUCCESSFUL… NOW YOU REMEMBER THAT B****!!!!!

  8. pop December 12, 2011

    Janet is the Jackson legacy now…REMEMBER THAT!

  9. ThankMeLater December 12, 2011

    She’s so GORGEOUS <3 I want another album !

  10. Misfit December 12, 2011

    Absofuckinglutely Gorgeous!!!

    @Sam your implication that she has one great album in her is such trash(IMO). I think,
    Janet albums (post dream street), have all been really good to masterpiece level.

    The reason the last few have under performed as you know, has to do with no radio, video play in the US, no promotion or single releases (for the most part), internationally, and no support from her last 2 labels.

    The music is her life and she will give us her talents for the duration, not just for 1 last stand.

    @Onyx
    Hey you! I know your happy like me both “Queens” of the stage are coming back to us!
    And all I see for us is “better days”! Lol!

  12. Rihannastan December 12, 2011

    Janet’s last 3 cd’s has been flops, but she is still pretty

  13. Ronnie_Slim December 12, 2011

    Love me sum Janet…Can’t wait for the next album

  14. Mark December 12, 2011

    Ugh I can’t even stomach looking at her anymore! Someone should make a fur coat out of her wigs.

  15. pat December 12, 2011

    Almost all of anets “flop” sold more than ur favs last cd

  16. pst December 12, 2011

    Queen janets first two “flops” hav sold more than ur favs last cd

  17. KenKen December 12, 2011

    Technically, Janet’s albums after ALL FOR YOU, overall was much better than what is popular now. Damita Jo was a helluva album and was MUCH BETTER than AFY. I didn’t really care for 20 YO because Jermaine Dupree tried to incorporate his style of music and it just didn’t work…..AT ALL. Discipline was better than 20 YO and actually should have sold waaaay better than it but Janet and LA Reid had creative differences for the singles. Feedback was something fresh and new, Rock Wit U was/is a classic song, it is just classic Janet at her best. But I am ready for new Janet music too

  18. brii December 12, 2011

    Dear Haters,
    GIRL BYE! Go get facts straight! Make moves

  19. SHESDUMB December 12, 2011

    JANET NEEDS TO STAY AWAY FROM THE DANCE MUSIC. I’D LOVE TO HEAR HER DO AN ALBUM FULL OF BALLADS BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT WE NEED, SOME REAL R&B, NOT DRY HEAVING AND YODELING TOPPED OFF WITH A COWARDLY LION WIG.

  20. *** December 12, 2011

    Michael & Janet are the Jackson legacy

    Janet is not Michael’s replacement. They were different artist, NOT interchangeable.

    Remember that!!!

  21. TheDimplePuppet December 13, 2011

    Janet Jackson will also be on Good Morning America & Extra this Thusrday as well. She looks gorgeous as ever. Please Janet just announce that you will be releasing a new album, tour, and a none related Tyler Perry movie, that’s all I want from Janet in 2012.

  22. TWITTER.COM/ESSENCE_OF_SEAN December 13, 2011

    LOL HATERS ARE MAD!

    1. I’M PRETTY SURE SHE HAS MORE THAN 1 GREAT ALBUM LEFT IN HER!

    2. IF JANET (WHO HAS BEEN WORKING SINCE AGE 7) WAS ONLY FAMOUS AND GOTTEN AS FAR AND AS BIG AS SHE HAS CAUSE OF MJ! THAN HOW COME HER BROTHERS & SISTERS WHO WENT SOLO B4 HER ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL AND LASTED AS LONG AS SHE ?

    3. JANET WILL COMEBACK TO MUSIC WHEN SHE IS GOT DAMN READY

    4. DAMITA JO IS 3X PLATINUM

    5. 20 Y.O IS PLATINUM

    6. DISCIPLINE WELL FLOP! YET HER 6TH NUMBER ONE ALBUM OF HER CAREER AND STILL SOLD MORE THAN MOST ARTISTS THAT ARE OUT TODAY!

    SO IF WE GON CALL JANET’S LAST 3 ALBUMS FLOPS! THEN WE NEED TO LOOK AT OTHER ARTISTS WHO BEEN FLOPPING SINCE THEIR DEBUT BOO BOO.

  23. Dunk December 13, 2011

    Big up to Sam for knowing the right producers for Janet, I think Jam and Lewis and Darkchild is all she needs, add one more UK producer just to give a couple of songs a fresh new feel, someone like Labrinth or Calvin Harris and you have a smoking record. I love Dallas Austin but didn’t think his work with Janet was anything special, the production on Sexhibition and Little While were both dated, great songs though, and as for Kanye his work with Janet was great but nothing he did is anything that Jimmy and Terry can;t do a million times better.

    The way that Janet worked with Jimmy and Terry during the VR period was she would go to clubs, listen to music like Drum N Bass, Goldie, Bjork and play all of this great progressive stuff to Jimmy, and they would be inspired by that and put there own stamp on a fresh sound, i think that would be sick!

    As for Darkchild, his got his ear to the ground and really understands Janet musically

  24. Theman December 13, 2011

    Janet’s last three solo efforts have sold more than some of these newer artists actual albums. Her lowest selling albums still go atleast gold/platinum which is still an accomplishment. She’s just above other folks poor standards.

  25. Theman December 13, 2011

    She looks beautiful as well.

  26. Spunkypoop December 13, 2011

    OMFG!!! She looks better than all your favs and Hurry girl bring on that album and let everyone know who is the real mother of this rhythmless NATION! #TEAMJANET

  27. Nique December 13, 2011

    She looks really pretty.

  28. skintightjeans December 13, 2011

    LOVE HER!!!!

  29. B Lamont December 13, 2011

    YAY!!! Bring on Thursday…QUICK!!!

  30. lola December 13, 2011

    Janet is nothing but a flop. She needs to sit her hold, chimp looking, ass down! Her last 3-4 albums were HUGE flops! They didn’t even go platinum!

  31. lola December 13, 2011

    *old

  32. Misfit December 13, 2011

    Lola , listen you mental midget, all her last 4 albums, minus discipline, went platinum. And discipline, still sold 1 mil, ww.

    Janet does not have to prove herself to anyone, She is already a legend, d*** wad.

    Go worry about your flop fav. Mmm kay….
    Run along titmouse. 

  33. Popeater December 13, 2011

    @ all the haters, Janet’s last 3 albums that you call flops debuted at #1-2. At any rate, I look forward to some new material. She will always have her loyal follwers!!! Long live the Queen!!!!

  34. GOLDMINE December 13, 2011

    @Rihannastan. Rhianna has yet to have a number 1 album, better yet, top 5 album. Yet Janet’s last three “flops” debuted at #1 or #2. take that!

  35. Keith December 13, 2011

    The story is Blackglama fur partnership and True You in paperback. Maybe a little something about the movie.

    Jam/Lewis/Darkchild could make a helluva record for Janet – if her heart’s in it. Darkchild on the club stompers and J&L on the midtempos and ballads (with Big Jim Wright).

    Totally agree with the poster who said Michael & Janet are the Jackson legacy…

  36. Sheltop December 13, 2011

    I AGREE SAM! JIMMY, TERRY, AND DARKCHILD ARE IT!
