Back In Black: Janet Jackson Named Face Of Blackglama For 3rd Year

Published: Monday 27th Aug 2012 by Sam

What becomes a legend most?

Clearly, for Blackglama, it’s Janet Jackson. For, the luxury fur firm have enlisted the Queen of Pop for as their brand spokesmodel for the third year in a row.

The full campaign is expected to be rolled out on September 1st. Yet, pending then, the diva-divine shot above, courtesy of Brown Sista, will have to suffice.

In other (relatively random) Janet news, WWE star CM Punk took to Twitter recently to say…

******

With Ms. Jackson’s creative director Gil Duldulao recently confirming that she’s rehearsing for something, and now CM Punk’s tweet, it’s clear something is going on. Keep it locked on That Grape Juice as we follow what is shaping up to be an exciting time for Janet fans.

    • TALK THAT S*** August 27, 2012

      Queen of Controversy…not the Queen of Pop

      • Suicide Blonde August 27, 2012

        She’s both.

      • RoyalKev August 27, 2012

        Is it Madonna’s impact or Britney &Christina, Justin Timberlake, Nicki & M.I.A and LMFAO’s impact that’s being felt? What does Madonna do solo anymore? Matter of fact where is Madonna when she performs live, you can’t spot her with the 100 people than join her on stage. Since 2000 all she’s been doing is using other artists. Madonna was a force to reckon with between 1983 -1989 and then she did something half way memorable in ’98 with Ray Of Light. Every era besides those have been cheesy and full of gimmicks!

        Tbh, Madonna’s only remembered for Vogue, Like A Virgin, Papa Don’t Preach, Like A Prayer and Express Yourself. The Ray Of Light Era stood out from all her others because she’s was really bizarre during that time. Other than that the average person can’t really recall a Madonna song. She’s 90% hype and will never be able to match the talent her peers (MJ, Whitney, Janet &Prince) have!!!!

        You only see what your eyes want to see.

        Madonna___________Janet jackson.

        and you all know it, if you don’t know nothing about Madonna, you better don’t talk s*** like this, who is performing with her in her tours, her and only her, i can understand if you don’t like her but to say she’s not the most famous and succesful female singer and artist of all time only behind these men, Elvis, The Beatles and Michael is ignorance, this is not about talent, is about success, and yes she is very talented, Janet can dance better but she will never be an artists like Madonna, never.

    • nonecaresok August 27, 2012

      I don’t like Madomnna but I agree with you. I think she has had more hits.

      • Suicide Blonde August 27, 2012

        No because she has more hits but because of Madonna’s impact in our culture, Janet would never have that power.

      • TALK THAT S*** August 27, 2012

        Janet is more influential , Most female pop acts follow Janet Jackson Blue print of what a pop artist should be. Artist like J-lo, Britney Spears, Ciara, wouldn’t have a career if it wasn’t for Janet.

      • Suicide Blonde August 27, 2012

        Are you high or you live in a cave, Madonna is the most influential female singer of all time and also the most successful.

      • TALK THAT S*** August 27, 2012

        Most influential female singer???? LMAO

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 27, 2012

      Guys Madonna is the Queen of Pop and that´s it. You can give Janet Jackson another title if u want but she is not the queen of pop
      @royalkev
      Are u trying to say Janet Jackson´s hit are more remebered than Madonna´s??? Give me a break. Also your point about Madonna not doing anything since 2000… please where are Janet´s hits this last decade?
      Madonna has the hits you mentioned from the 80´s and early 90´s. Then she had less influence during a big part of the 90´s and then she did what she needed to do, a big change, with Ray of Light. But not only that album. After that one Music and American life came. And those 3 are her very best albums ever. Maybe her most recognizable hits are the ones from the 80´s but her best albums are those from 1998-2003. Then Confessions album in 2005 was a great dance album (she changed with this one compared to what she was doing on her 3 previous ones).
      And then her last two albums I agree are big letdowns, but hey she has offered more than enough forever and ever.
      Madonna´s catalogue>>> Janet´s sorry
      You can prefer Janet, it´s ok, she´s a better dancer and all the things you want. But she is not the Queen of Pop, and specially outside the USA the difference is tremendous

      @suicide
      Madonna is the biggest female icon in music… but not the most influential “singer” haha. Leave that to Whitney and the likes. People after them just want to sing like them (failing miserably)

      • Suicide Blonde August 27, 2012

        In Pop Music she is the most influential, Whitney, Celine and Mariah are vocalist, those who wants to be a vocalist have Whitney, Celine and Mariah as an inspiration, Madonna’s influence is more visual, Pop is Popular Music so that is what i’m trying to say, don’t you think if Mimi would have still making more Pop songs, her sales would have been still similar to those of the 90’s, i’m talking about Pop, Madonna’s world.

      • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 27, 2012

        ok you know we agree about all this 🙂

      • RoyalKev August 27, 2012

        @ JohnVidal

        You do have a point, Janet hasn’t had tremendous mainstream pop success in the last decade, but Madonna came in LAST place in the 90’s. Whitney had bigger sales, Mariah had bigger sales, Janet had bigger sales and Celine had bigger sales with studio albums. So Madge and Janet were both down for a decade. They’re even! O_o

        I gave ROL it’s recognition, American Life was a dud (during those times in the 90’s). You perhaps, see it as her finest work, but on a larger scale it wasn’t anywhere near successful. You also speak highly of her Confessions album , but that barely did anything substantial in the states. It did numbers ww, but you can’t possibly try to argue that any of Madge’s signature songs came from that era. You see much more of Janet’s influence with Feedback in today’s videos than anything M cooked up during that era. Let’s put aside who gets hype, these artists emulate Janet, they just attach Madonna’s name for approval. Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Britney, Jlo, the late Aaliyah, Usher & Cassie all = Janet recycled.

        I get it! Madonna’s this Icon and she’s big around the world. I’m not denying her that. It’s just my opinion here – but I feel Madonna’s one of those artists that gets so much credit for doing so little, when people don’t seem to be moved by more than a third of her work.

  19. Callula August 28, 2012

    Janet Jackson is the Queen of Pop! The Queen should be someone who can appeal to more than the mainstream. Janet Jackson is the ONLY diva out of Madonna, Whitney and Mariah who was able to appeal to an MTV / video generation, R&B, Pop, and Dance – across the board.

    Madonna is the queen of mainstream-pop yes, but I believe the Queen of Pop is more than just Mainstream, and Janet Jackson was/is that. Clearly, she scored 5 back to back #1 studios albums in an era when albums actually SOLD. Even in Madonna’s peak, she couldn’t score even score 4 back to back #1 albums.

    Control #1
    Rhythm Nation #1
    Janet. #1
    The Velvet Rope #1
    All for You #1
    Damita Jo #2
    20 YO #2
    Discipline #1

    Madonna #8
    Like a Virgin #1
    True Blue #1
    Like a Prayer #1
    Erotica #2
    Bedtime Stories #3
    Ray of Light #2
    Music #1
    American Life #1
    Confessions on a Dance Floor #1
    Hard Candy #1
    MDNA #1

    I don’t know why but I didn’t think Janet would advertise wearing someone’s skin as something to be proud of. That’s not being a hater. I just don’t think something given life was created to be worn as an outfit.

    Look people! I do like Madonna’s old stuff. Yes? She is a hit maker on some of her music. To be honest. She doesn’t know how to act, need to see her do new moves with her music. Tired of seeing her on the floor when she does her dancing. And when she come out! She had to show s** right away to be like. That’s what I think about her.

    Now Miss Janet Damita Jo Jackson! She started her career by acting. But also, did some music performance. Sorry Madonna Lovers…Janet knows how to dance better, knows how to acting better, and was the first MTV Icon before any other famous person. After her was other famouns bands not even Madonna has got it yet! Janet also, had the biggest deal with $80 mil. Not even Madonna has that happen for her. Also, As much I like Michael Jackson. Janet has pass her brother too ;)! Right now, her brother is worth a lot of money because he is no longer alive. It’s pretty sad :(. Anyways…Lot’s of Luv for Miss Jj <3
