    it was very shocking

    As a JJ fan, it’s nice to know that they got on cos they never seemed to mention each other. You know the internet and these damn blogs these days – if one artist isn’t publicly giving another props, it somehow automatically means that they’ve got beef!!! SMH

    Luv u Janet. This is a shock, and a double whammy for the Jacksons. Whitney and that family were tight before she even became famous and before she did the song with jermaine Jackson.

    RIP Whitney. Damn.

    Glad she said what she said, she needed to say something.
    Cannot wait for the new album J!

    When they started, a lot of people thought Janet would be the troubled one. Janet was in the shadow of her brother while Whitney was the perfect sister always thanking God and hugging her mother in every award show.

  6. Lily Gaga February 14, 2012

    Enough of Whitney arghhhhhhhhhhhh, getting tired of her stories. Move on….

  7. Justathought (Azealia Banks is coming…) February 14, 2012

    Yes girl…we were ALL in total shock. We still are RIP Whitney

    not to hate but i have noticed that gaga fans are extremely unrespectful. I dont want to start a discussion so please so this comment as a beginning and a end but it shocks me that for people who are fan of someone can not understand the pain that whitney fans are in right now. I am not a gaga fan but if she would ever die i would never disrespect her in a way. So i ask you gaga, beyonce mariah or whoever fans. Please try to think that if it would be your idol and icoon how would it feel to read nasty stuff about them when they have past away.

    @Lily Gaga – Take your ass somewhere else and don’t click onto news that you’re “so called” tired of. Let whitney’s fans grieve you disrespectful ass crack baby.

  12. Carlos February 14, 2012

    Damn she looks incredible. No matter how sad situations can be, Janet always put a smile on your face. Luv her. Our last living Pop icon. Embrace this Queen to the tea.

  13. desi February 14, 2012

    @Gaga’s Army – B**** you’re “Lily Gaga” shut your ass up!

  14. Texas Cowgirl February 14, 2012

    Michael first, now Whitney another modern day Legend gone.
    RIP Etta James too. I consider her pre-old school.

  15. Ass February 14, 2012

    You guys should think. This is so not a gaga fan doing all of this.

    Think about it. Who is the hype machine who’s s***** album has not been doing so well since the Whitney news broke? Who’s stans hate on gaga as well?

    So obvious who’s stans are doing this and it ain’t cute….

  16. kitteneyez2012 February 14, 2012

  17. janetStan February 14, 2012

    Wow. Janet looks incredible, and she always knows the right the sing to say. Class act. Whitney and Janet have always respected each other. She’s a long time friend of the Jacksons. One of her first hit songs was with Jermaine Jackson. Beautiful song btw.

  18. Popeater February 14, 2012

    class act!!! Love this lady!!!!

    RIP Whitney.

  19. Renzo February 14, 2012

    RIP Whitney! Janet looks great.

  20. B Lamont February 14, 2012

    She is one of the most poised celebrities ever!! Always so graceful and beautiful! So happy that she cleared that rumor up by addressing the fact that they’ve always been friends (without even saying it).

    RIP Whitney!!!

  21. MaZ February 14, 2012

    What about Mary J Blige? What did she say? I haven’t heard anything from her regarding Whitney’s death. They were close friends.

    What about Jordin Sparks, her partner in their new movie “Sparkle”?

  23. Gaga’s Army February 14, 2012

    Booohoooo..can’t deal with the fact Whitney was irrelevant for the past 10 years because of her addictions?

    Sad for her fans..next will be Janet 🙁

  24. Dev February 14, 2012

    @MAZ some prople mourn in private and do not need to make a public display to prove that they hurt

  25. Dev February 14, 2012

    @MAZ i wasn’t having a go…. just saying

  26. Shasha Fierce February 14, 2012

    @Lily Gaga

    LGG the Overrated thrash of 21st century! Stay home for god sake and pop out that ugly Monster please from your womb. Your gimmick and hype are getting old and tired Gaga. And your little Monsters are the most pathetic thrash in the world.

  27. TheMan4u February 14, 2012

    i love that Janet say’s she’s THE VOICE and im so glad they were friends

  28. Shasha Fierce February 14, 2012

    Lily Gaga @ Rihanna’s fan !!!!!!!!

  29. Lax February 14, 2012

    B/S Rihanna’s fans is not that fukkkkkin stupid, and do not try
    to say that they are. Rihanna have spoken and she not only spoke
    to the cause she spoke words that are echoed around the fricking World
    Rihanna likme Janet and others of us loved Whitney.
    I am just mad that Whitney did not fight harder aganist her demons. and to
    @GaGa nutt cakes i love yo Broke Busted Ass too along with the navy

  30. Lax February 14, 2012

    @Sashe fierce, aka fake as two left shoes
    You are a lying ass.

  31. Ass February 14, 2012


    I agree. I was talking about the queen of gimmicks. Not rihanna. The one who almost no other performers have anything good to say about her. Even her ex husbands. Lol!

    It’s her dog fans( like her), always saying some dumb s*** for attention.

  32. Always love you, Whitney (RIP) February 14, 2012

    Whitney respected everyone. And she was always respected back. Janet is one of my favorites too. Both ladies are reminiscent of class. I’m glad we still have legends like janet among us. Janet’s and whitney’s songs were always in heavy rotation on my ipod.

  33. Always love you, Whitney (RIP) February 14, 2012

    @Gaga Army it’s ashame Lady Gaga has so much respect for Whitney but immature stans like you represent her. SMH. Sad. Whitney wasn’t in the spotlight for 10 years because she had a family and other important things like family to attend to. She’s still a global superstar, toured a lot of countries, loved by millions, and a legend unlike you’ll ever be so your comments make no impact on anyone except yourself.

  34. Boopi February 14, 2012

    I still can’t believe this. My heart is aching. 🙁
    *side note* Queen Janet looks STUNNING!!!

  35. JohnVidal February 14, 2012

    I´m still in shock too. It´s so hard to see one of the 4 biggest go… World is in shock
    This crappy person is not a Gaga fan, please people don´t be silly. He makes it to make Gaga look bad. Retarded

  36. Ass February 14, 2012

    Still barking the same tired message about 4, huh? Some people are dimmer than a box of rocks. According to some peoples estimation, your only value is the records you sell, not the overall impact you have.

    I find it funny too that the repugnant stans I speak of, just happened to appear, after I called them out as the fake gaga stan. What a coincidence.

    A bit transparent, wouldnt you say. What up p** v****. You switch those usernames so well.

  37. Ass February 14, 2012

    Well you and @f** royalpee. So in grief, but throwing shade at every point.

    You are both, along with your fave are as deep as a puddle. Kick rocks d*****.

    Maybe one day y’all will be as deep as her holes. Then maybe you would make more sense….

  38. Realtalkbswalk February 14, 2012
