Janet Jackson Set For Fashion Week Return?

Janet Jackson has made it routine to duck and dive the spotlight when between projects. Yet, with a whopping six years having passed since the Pop queen released her last studio album, anticipation currently sits at fever pitch (and rising).

The singer’s current buzz has intensified in recent months following reports that she’s gearing up to unleash a new album in November.

Now, after teasing at a collaboration with the star last month, Balmain‘s creative force Olivier Rousteing  is again touting a Jackson-related surprise.

See what we mean below…

On Instagram this week, the fashion major posted this shot of Jackson with the following caption:

#CENSORED #oopsididntknowwecouldnttalkaboutSEX #comingsoon #parisfashionweek

jj-balmain

Ambiguous seeming? Perhaps. However, it’s worth noting that reliable intel confirms that Janet is currently in Paris for Fashion Week – which kicks off today and ends October 1st.

And while we can barely contain our excitement, it appears we may have to do so for a few days more – as Balmain’s main presentation isn’t until Thursday (September 25th). Should she use the event to launch her musical return, it certainly would serve as a super unique vehicle to kick off a comeback.

Exciting times…hopefully!

    Yes miss Jackson!! She looks amazing!

    • FAF September 23, 2014

      Why would olivier put up a janet pic with madonna lyrics? #foul

      • Taylor September 23, 2014

        Yeah Mark pointed that out to me, I didn’t even notice it at first. It’s childish and unnecessary.

    The Queen Supreme..

  3. LB September 23, 2014

    Mariah Carey may be queen, but Janet Jackson is simply the greatest female pop star ever. This woman is and will always be revolutionary. I just admire her artistry.

    • Taylor September 23, 2014

      I would say Whitney’s the Queen, but yes, Janet is the greatest female pop star ever.

      • LB September 23, 2014

        Mariah’s resume says otherwise.

        HARDCORE TRUTH, I love and respect Whitney but she was limited to her ability to just sing, Mariah and especially Janet could do a lot lot more.

        I also like and respect Madonna but she was more tolerated than respected.

      • The Wig Snatcher September 23, 2014

        Let’s not fight over Whitney, Mariah and Janet…and Grandonna. All of them are legends at meteoric levels, unlike they’re lessors will ever be like Beyoncé the copycat and Katy the basic.

      • LB September 23, 2014

        LMAO Hahahahaha not today, I’m not getting into the Bey thing today.

    • LO September 23, 2014

      lol & lol. Madonna remains the queen AND the greatest female popstar of all time. Her impact, longevity and numbers don’t lie.

      • LB September 23, 2014

        “Madonna remains the queen AND the greatest female popstar of all time”

        And what is so “great” about Madonna? What did she bring to the table besides taking from younger artists and using them to advance her “longevity”?

    • JOHNVIDAL September 23, 2014

      What? Stupid comment and not needed at all. But now that you say it, Whitney´s, Mariah´s or Madonna´s stats say otherwise. It´s really stupid to get into it though since they are all so good and big at their thing.

      • LB September 23, 2014

        Mariah’s stats say otherwise, I agree on that one. Madonna was at most a performer that was tolerated, even though she does have some albums I love like Ray of light.

        Whitney was just a very good singer, she didn’t really bring to the table what Pattie and Aretha didn’t already bring.

        Celine is irrelevant and a puppet.

        Janet Jackson was a pop movement, a revolution in pop culture and an advancement in female pop artistry world over. Never has there ever been an artist that has revolutionized female pop music like Janet has since Tina Turner.

      • JOHNVIDAL September 23, 2014

        Or maybe you are taking it a little too far and can´t see that the female performer most naturally loved with no gimmicks needed is Tina Turner, or that Whitney was everything with her voice and presence alone, or that Celine´s stats, even if not the ‘typical’ pop star, murder Janet´s, and so on. Not to mention Madonna´s catalogue is sooooooo damn outstanding too (even if she can´t dance like Janet). Just leave it at ‘Janet is IN MY OPINION the best pop female star’, don´t you think? Cause stats and worldwide fame and impact say otherwise.

  4. Grandma Bey September 23, 2014

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Bitxh

  5. Mark111 September 23, 2014

    Ummm, I’m no expert, but I think this is what you bottoms call “shade”.

    • Taylor September 23, 2014

      Yes, i’m seeing a little super bowl shade in there.

      • Mark111 September 23, 2014

        Oh really? Cause I see Madonna’s lyrics with a pic of Janet that looks like the same Granny Human Nature video. I could be wrong, but…

      • LB September 23, 2014

        This hastag tho, #oopsididntknowwecouldnttalkaboutSEX, and after Madonna cropped Janet off of the Michael pic. It’s most definitely shade

    • The Wig Snatcher September 23, 2014

      Apparently you know what a bottom is…

  7. Mark111 September 23, 2014

    Remember when the Lambs made fun of Janet being old, fat and not being able to sell or sing anymore? Oh the irony.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 23, 2014

      The lambs? How can people still be so ridiculous to talk about thousands of people ast if they were one who acts, thinks and says the same? Grow up.

  8. Al September 23, 2014

    This better be something amazing like “The Velvet Rope” and not a rehash of “All For Poo” and “Dorito Jo”. The Jermaine Dupri era needs to be a distant memory. The 2000s were horrible for Janet’s career and image.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) September 23, 2014

      Go sell some mouth girl

    • what? September 23, 2014

      F*** no! Velvet Rope was too damn sad! Great
      but sad!

  9. Grandma Bey September 23, 2014

    Slayent Jackson! My ears,eyes, and edges are ready!

  10. tits mcgee September 23, 2014

    Oliver is a messy. Lol. Using a Hermagesty line
    to promote Queen Janet.

    Funny little scoundrel!! 🙂

    • LO September 23, 2014

      As long as he knows who the supreme is…

      • tits mcgee September 23, 2014

        Yes. Who he is promoting. Janet. _/

      • FAF September 23, 2014

        I get shade from him a lot

        It’s a turn off

  11. LB September 23, 2014

    “All for you” was a great fun album, it was fantastic IMO. I believe it was when Janet had the most fun and experimented. Sort of like Rihanna’s LOUD era.

    If you want to talk a horrible Janet album, don’t look any further than “20 Y.O”

  12. Grandma Bey September 23, 2014

    • Nothing but the truth September 23, 2014

      OMG YES!!!!!! That face and body, yes Janet, I live!!!!

    • Mark111 September 23, 2014

      Let them know that the person they stan for stans for Janet. Your fave’s fave.

      Bey, J.lo, Beit and Ci are have different styles of dancing, but Janet can do it all and some. Looking back, Janet never repeated any style of dance, she killed one and went on to another style.

      • Nothing but the truth September 23, 2014

        ^^^Truth

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) September 23, 2014

        TRUTH!!!

  13. qop September 23, 2014

    He put up a picture JanitorJackson, yet guess who is being quoted in captions? ‘There’s only one queen and that’s Madonna, biiiittttcchhh’….

  14. #TeamTinashe Stan (Pre-Order “Aquarius” Now On iTunes) September 23, 2014

    The Queen who started it all and birthed all of our singer/dancers is BACK!!!
    She slayed the 90’s!!

    • Mark111 September 23, 2014

      With only two albums. Don’t forget the mid 80’s.

      • #TeamTinashe Stan (Pre-Order “Aquarius” Now On iTunes) September 23, 2014

        I know! Rhythm Nation was one of my favorites!

  15. Stephon Maurice Jackson September 23, 2014

    My last name is REALLY “Jackson”. So, I consider her my Auntie. I just love Miss Jackson (If ya nasty). Her albums just give me life. Also, LovelyBird is right. Her album 20 YO was TERRIBLE! Everything else is pretty solid. Besides her first two FLOP ass albums… Love you Janet.

  16. booboo bye September 23, 2014

    There goes that loose bottom again go shove a totem pole up in you and go sit down! nobody cares about that patchy edges Naomi Campbell.

    and whoever is asking dumb ass questions on my ask f*** off stop bullying and the next person to ask me about Molly is gonna b sorry

  22. LB September 23, 2014

    The awkward moment when a Beyonce fan suggests they’ll finger your as$, I thought loose booty bottoms preferred getting their ass fingered, that does make up the bulk of Beyonce fans.

    And no I’m not in SA and even if I was, I’d be appalled at the level of gutter semi-illiterate, functional r***** trash they’d let in the country. But there’s a first time for everything.

    • Suicide Blonde September 23, 2014

      LMAO, i almost died, lol.

      • Brandy stan September 23, 2014

        ^ One could only hope so.

        @Brandy
        Oh well, i wish the best to you, even if i don’t know you.

      • Brandy stan September 23, 2014

      • Suicide Blonde September 23, 2014

        Sad person.

  23. LB September 23, 2014

    Honey, how about you get people to care about what you think or have to say first, start there before you start falsely assuming anyone will ask you about anything.

  24. Did you say Justin Bieber,one Direction,miley,lady gaga or beyoncè.(My gal G dragged Molly on twitter) September 23, 2014

    @LB people have been asking me about why i attack Molly & i delete most of these questions now let me eat u out.u know u want me too

  25. JOHNVIDAL September 23, 2014

    This will be so interesting because it´s been such a long time. I´m so curious about the direction she´ll take musically. Like I have no idea at all. How she performs on today´s market is a different story and shouldn´t be important at this point.
    I´m still not convinced this is happening this fall though. I´ll believe it when I see it.
    Talking about the next couple of months: is it true at all that Adele is releasing her upcoming musical blockbuster at all? Cause November is not far away and there´s nothing. Wasn´t Rihanna releasing for sure now too? And others I don´t even remember right now. I know Taylor Swift is releasing and will sell big (sadly), and wasn´t Eminem releasing a new one again this year? I´m a little lost. The album I´m listening the most right now is Ultraviolence LOL

    • Suicide Blonde September 23, 2014

      “Ultraviolence” is a masterpiece, that woman got me crazy.

  26. LB September 23, 2014

    “Cause November is not far away and there´s nothing. Wasn´t Rihanna releasing for sure now too? And others I don´t even remember right now.”

    If Rihanna was releasing in November, a first single would have been out by now. She is working on the soundtrack for her animated movie, I believe she’ll promote that before releasing her own project.

    I believe the next Rihanna album will be RIHvemember of 2015, after the animated movie soundtrack is out.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 23, 2014

      That would be weird. She already took a longer break than normal even if she releases now.

      • LB September 23, 2014

        In what way is it weird?

      • JOHNVIDAL September 23, 2014

        I don´t know. She´s made for releasing singles non stop. Maybe they decided it was enough and will try something different this time 🙂 They don´t have too much time now before she stops being among the youngest girls.

      • LB September 23, 2014

        “They”, “she’s made”, you’re not making any sense. You still have not explained how it is weird. She will release music, just music marketed to a younger audience with the children’s soundtrack. From there, she’ll work on her stuff.

        She has been at this for close to 10 years now, which is more than some artists like Gaga who were at most, a fad and burned out quickly.

        I’m certain she, or whoever “they” (I’ll assume her and her team) are know what “they” or she are/is doing.

      • JOHNVIDAL September 24, 2014

        Hmm Gaga is definitely in no worst position than what Rihanna was in before Loud for example. Gaga is still big at touring and it´s not like her album sold nothing. Plus she keeps taking risks Rihanna has never taken with her constant releases cooked by producers to be ready for radio. Gaga is releasing a Jazz album right now, her career didn´t end or something and Rihanna´s is not that big for a supposed mega star. So stop the nonsense. When will Rihanna release a non pop album ready for radio? Oh wait, she can´t sing (or dance, or write, or perform, etc).

  27. Did you say Justin Bieber,one Direction,miley,lady gaga or beyoncè.(My gal G dragged Molly on twitter) September 23, 2014

    Suicide what went wrong boo i dont wanna shade u cause i like u. @LB i dont care bout ur sour juice call me,but not after 9 i might b 18 but my curfew tight

    • Suicide Blonde September 23, 2014

      I didn’t know it was towards you, sorry.

      • LB September 23, 2014

        What is sorry is the fact that he thinks he can shade anybody. He should be sorry his grammar is bordering on Beyonce’s functional level, which isn’t saying much considering she can hardly read the first page of the 3 pigs and the wolf to Blue ivy without looking at the children’s dictionary.

  28. Greg_N__Greed September 23, 2014

    Girl, dat pic alone is slaying me. Janet hurry da f*** up, pssh! Tired of fake Queens proclaiming to be something their clearly NOT. I need authentic & originality back

  29. StingRae September 23, 2014

    Janet forever!

  30. Jay September 23, 2014

    I am so excited for Janet Jackson. Madonna has spent the last 15 years trying to latch herself on to any current artist there is (Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Nicki Minaj to name a few). Outside of Hung Up, I honestly don’t remember Madonna’s last hit since maybe Take a Bow (yet I know there were a few after…. I don’t even remember one).

    I love that Janet Jackson takes long breaks. Beyonce, Rihanna should follow. Now the world misses and remembers just how great Janet Jackson is/was.

  31. FutureCIARA September 23, 2014

    OMG slay!!! And my fave is performing in Paris during Fashion Week. OMG the possibilities with those 2 in the same city!

    • Mark111 September 23, 2014

      Which parking lot will Ciara be performing at?

      • NOLIES September 23, 2014

        She’ll be at the same one where you’ll be spinning on a d*** in the car and the exact spot of R. Kelly’s ex wife burial plot. Sit down FarmerMarket666

  32. ~The Arcade~ September 23, 2014

    Yes Ma’am!!!!!

  33. NOLIES September 23, 2014

    Never been a huge fan of Miss. Janet, but I know she has HITS & a pretty good discography. I wish her well. All of her peers are under 200k, so you can’t help but wish her well.

  34. RoyalKev September 23, 2014

    Janet is just the consummate artist. Her flair, artistry, vision and even unique mezzo soprano vocal range makes her one of a kind. What Janet means to Pop music is beyond words. RN will always be the most important Pop album ever imo! Janet’s so incredible because she has taken so many risks in her career. She’s probably the first Pop artist to marry great melodies with significant lyrics reflecting the times. There’s been so many RN imitations(the TVR album has them too). This is why she’s always the first person that comes to mind when I think of the word innovative. Everything from her album themes, to her showmanship on stage, to her unbelievable visuals made her special in ways that will forever make her a standout.

    I believe we’re not given more than what we can handle and I must say that no other pop star would have been able to endure all of the ramifications of the SB incident. Sure, it’s been a big hit to her career, but none of her peers could afford to have experience such a misstep. It would have destroyed them all (if they were ridiculed on the level she was), but it didn’t take away from Janet’s relevancy. I don’t think anything could … not her fading from the public’s eye and certainly not the media. Out of all the great legends, Janet’s truly the one that remained closets to her peak days longest (in terms of ability). Janet’s always been in fighting form every time she pops back up! Janet’s exceptional and I’d be lying if I said that I witnessed this more than a single handful of times.

    • NOLIES September 24, 2014

      Of course you have witnessed everything Janet. You’re an old queen. You’re probably old enough to be all of your favs Grandfather. You swear up and down you preach the gospel. Your opinion is as relevant as the Two Sacrifices album on the Hot 200. Tell us more about your FLOP blog and how you wish that TGJ would let you be a writer. Why don’t you STFU old thot, pretend your walls exist, and go spin on another d***… You and your ignorant fuckery!

      • NOLIES September 25, 2014

        Never switch my name talking to you. I don’t stan for anyone because they are ALL demonic & devil worshippers. So please stop. I can do whatever I want. UGH and NOLIES is clearly me. I NEVER pretend to be two different people. Especially considering my avi is the same. I change to NOLIES when I’m thinking about being nice and UGH when I see b****** like you. I’m going to do whatever the f*** I want. If you can make that flop blog and say whatever you want, then I can say whatever I want to whoever I want.

    • RoyalKev September 24, 2014

      Here comes Ugh = Nolies again! You are such a pressed soul and predictable, incredibly basic hater. Switching your name every other time you reply to me, but running the same lines does nothing to hide the fact that you’re the same miserable f***! Your creepy ass talk like you know my age and what my preferences are – you just come off as a very deranged b****! Why are you so stuck on this blogging bit, do you know what I’m pursuing in life? Of course, not! Your stalker ass don’t even have it half right! Your not hitting a nerve, be seated already.

      I know who you stan for though and I understand all your insecurities. You can’t make people like your favs! Get over that. That’s a stupid goal to have here! There’s no need to come at me every time the true legends I stan for get mentioned. I’m not the “Gospel”, but you keep following me like I’m your church.

      • NOLIES September 25, 2014

        And that gospel line is as lame as Two Sacrifices chart positions and certifications.

  35. Sean September 24, 2014
