Hot Shot: Beyonce Dresses As Janet Jackson For Halloween

Published: Friday 31st Oct 2014 by Sam

Since the onset of Beyonce‘s career, the diva has consistently touted how much of an influence legends Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson have been on her career.

As such, it was warming to see the ‘Drunk In Love’ singer pay homage to the latter this Halloween.

Array

King B was spotted posing with a fan backstage at Power 1051.1’s Powerhouse event in New York last night. Her ensemble saluted Jackson’s renown ‘Rhythm Nation’ look.

Random sounding, perhaps, but we’d love to see a duet between ladies. With the right song and visual, it could be epic…right?

In any case, peep clips below of the stars speaking on each other…

  7. Tea4Daze October 31, 2014

      • Bye dummy October 31, 2014

    • Harmony October 31, 2014

  8. King B October 31, 2014

    Test 234

  9. Cake like Lady GaGa October 31, 2014

    Doing what she does best, COPYING!!! T********* has not a single creative atom in her entire body!! The tranny should be home taking car of Blue, but she’s too busy popping her stank vag and coping everyone!!

    • Dancing Monley October 31, 2014

      A gaga fan calling someone a tranny SMH

    • B2B October 31, 2014

      Like how Gaga copied Madonna? Shouldn’t you be buying Art Pop so It can get certified? You over here stressing Beyonce while self titled is already double platinum, OTR tour sold perfectly and Bey is snatching endorsements.
      ArT Pop is the biggest flop we’ve seen in years!

  10. Aml October 31, 2014

    Christ this site licks “KingBs” ass Jesus

  11. doubline47 October 31, 2014

    Cute!

  12. BubblePopElectric October 31, 2014

    This is adorable! I can totally see King Bey’s 7-year-old self beaming in this homage to Queen Janet. Happy Halloween everyone!

  13. #TeamTinashe Stan “Aquarius” In Stores October 31, 2014

    Yeesss pay homage to the REAL QUEEN! Janet inspired all of y’all female singers/dancers. Before there was an Shanice, Aaliyah, Myà, Beyonce, Rihanna, Tinashe there was a creator that started this movement. Never sweep Janet under the rug!
    And Beyoncé nice choice! 😉

    • Lana Del Bae October 31, 2014

      The fact that you would put Tinashe next to all those other girls is just hilarious to me. Tinashe is not a natural dancer in the way her mother Mya is.

      • #TeamTinashe Stan “Aquarius” In Stores October 31, 2014

        Thank you for valuing my opinion. 😀

    • Mark111 October 31, 2014

      In Pretend, Tinashe dressed like this in the library scene. She’s the NEXT imo and her album is VERY Janet and good.

  14. BeyBeyKing October 31, 2014

    But Janet doesn’t like her. Don’t you remember when Bey dissed her dad and Janet replied telling her that she needs to grow up.

    • Life’s A Box of Chocolates October 31, 2014

      So said a tabloid. I’d take that with a grain of salt.

  15. Sam October 31, 2014

    You better preach now!!!

  16. MDNA2014 October 31, 2014

    The irony is that Janet has never liked Beyonce.

  17. MRB October 31, 2014

    Beyonce could never be Janet even in costume! NEVER! Real talk!!

    • Dark Horse October 31, 2014

      EXACTLY!

    • TRUTH SERUM October 31, 2014

      She doesn’t have to be Janet because in real life… She’s Beyonce

      • LOL as you ho’s October 31, 2014

        LOL you said that as if supposed to mean something.

      • MRB October 31, 2014

        Right! LMFAO!!! The Jackson brand is deep in the history books! Beyonce could preform on the moon and still wouldn’t reach JANET!FACT!!!!!!!! Its life sweetie!

  18. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) October 31, 2014

    Yes, I love that she’s always paying homage to the legends that inspired her. So humble. Other artists should take note instead of throwing shade at them. Bey is so classy, I love her.

    • LOL as you ho’s October 31, 2014

      LOL at humble

  19. Royalkev October 31, 2014

    So F-ing Cool! KingB is the QOP for Halloween! Sweet!

  20. RICHIE_RICH October 31, 2014

    Mother is drop dead gorgeous!!!!! That MUG is everything…..

    • Molly October 31, 2014

      more like basic but ok

      • RICHIE_RICH October 31, 2014

        Like you’re life!!!!!!

  21. Indie October 31, 2014

    I Love this! Beyonce is to cute, and i Know Janet will love this, She loves Beyonce thats why she did that photo shoot with B and Mary J Blige where all 3 of them praised each other, Beautiful Black Queens!

    • JanetXone October 31, 2014

      That was before their cold war two years later in 2006. Don’t act as though you don’t remember when Janet admitted that it annoyed her that she was being compared to Beyonce on the Angie Martinez show.

      Or when Beyonce said she was happy she didn’t have a father like Joe Jackson. Or when Janet’s then boyfriend said Beyonce wasn’t on Janet’s plane. Or when Beyonce dissed them both back in Diva when she said “take it to another level no passengers on my plane.”

      • Indie October 31, 2014

        Yeh She dissed her in Diva thats why Diva looks like Rhythm Nation and all the videos in that Era were Janet inspired in Black and White and it was the same time Beyonce said she couldn’t wait to see Janet perform scream, Also nothing that Big Mouth JD who cheated on Janet by getting another women pregnant, counts for anything that Janet thinks, Jermaine was ALWAYS blowing gas and most of Janets fans could not stand him at the time cos he ruined her 2OYO era disrespected every rapper she ever worked with and some of her songs even and the Damita JO album! Janet also read Jo Jackson, in her own book for being a bad father so i highly doubt she is going to get offended by a small comment like that, and just because most Icons do not like being compared to anyone especially people who came after them, its insultive that does not mean she does not like her, this is all reaching! fans who hate beyonce want them to dislike each other but clearly Beyonce is showing that this is not the case, and for her to tribute her like this I’m sure behind the scenes there is love between them, cos i sure as hell would not tribute someone who i believed did not like!

  22. B Lamont October 31, 2014

    Well well well…she knows who she bows down to I see. Ain’t mad at her for this one at all

  23. Pat October 31, 2014

    Keri looked better!

  24. KissesForKelly October 31, 2014

    Did they make up or something?

  25. P October 31, 2014

    She looks soo young without the heavy makeup. Thought this was an old pic.

  26. Cake like Lady GaGa October 31, 2014

    I agree, Keri Hilson looked WAY better than this obese tranny..

    • NIEL October 31, 2014

      well neither Janet or Bey know who Keri is……so thats VOID…..

      • Molly October 31, 2014

        But didn’t Keri write songs for bey before?

      • Cake like Lady GaGa October 31, 2014

        Obviously you know her, and that’s why you’re mad she looked better than obese t*********..

  27. Greg_N_Greed October 31, 2014

    YahSs I luv it. Bow down to the original Queen.
    Damn, I miss Janet so much. Plz come bck. I beg u!

  28. TheElusiveLamb October 31, 2014

    She looks amazing. It’s such a sweet gesture. Janet is Queen, so she deserves the homage.

  29. LB October 31, 2014

    Miss Jackson if you nasty….yassssss

    Well Beyonce has always been a Janet Jackson fan, even when she was stealing from her. She looks cute.

    • Molly October 31, 2014

      kiii

  30. PopMusic October 31, 2014

    This may not be a simple costume. This may be a hint of something to come. That said, I love her costume.

  31. Molly October 31, 2014

    Death at the girls dragging Thotyonce

  32. Molly October 31, 2014

    The shade is Janet doesn’t even care for bey like that

  33. LB October 31, 2014

    Next year she’ll dress up as Aaliyah. I would say Jennifer Lopez but she has already done that for practically half her career

    http://youtu.be/rnBMWN4aw30

  34. LB October 31, 2014

    Janet wanted to know why Beyonce had to mention her family. They’re not friends and barely know each other. She feels Beyonce went out of her way to tell the world she’s from the upper class and the Jacksons were like a bunch of dirty gutter rats. Janet is proud of her family and how they came from nothing and became superstars.

    Not only is Janet telling everyone who will listen that Beyonce has a lot of growing up to do and that she needs to stop trying to impress everyone, she’s planning to confront Beyonce herself and read her the riot act.

  35. LB October 31, 2014

    FAKEyonce: “I grew up upper class. Private school. My dad had a Jaguar. We’re African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we’re like The Jacksons. But I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.”

    • waterfalls October 31, 2014

      the contempt of little rich daddy’s girl

      • RICHIE_RICH October 31, 2014

        Whats the issue, I grew up the same way? I can relate to what Beyonce’ is saying

  36. Dark Horse October 31, 2014

    I doubt Janet approves since she doesn’t give two fu cks about a damn s*** named Beyonce.

  37. Corey Anton October 31, 2014

    I must admit, I’m shocked!!! After years of throwing shade and making subliminal songs like DIVA & BOW DOWN…..I got sick of her disrespecting her elders that paved the way for her! I thought she would have reached out to Janet since that was one of the women she idolized growing up….she does owe it to Janet to say hey lets do a project together….maybe a song or two and music video!!! The Beyhive & Janet Fans like myself bump heads alot! We just want Janet to be given her props and respect! #NO SHADE!!!

    • RICHIE_RICH October 31, 2014

      Know one owns anyone anything….. The fcuk.

      I live for both Janet and Beyonce’.

  38. Britney Stan October 31, 2014

    Has Beyonce ever publicly apologized to Janet? If not this just comes off as mocking to me.

    • LB October 31, 2014

      No, she just has Dream write songs like Bow Down and Diva for her

      • B2B October 31, 2014

        The dream defiantly didn’t write diva. He actually had nothing to do With the record! If you are going to speak on somethig at least know what you’re talking about!

  39. LB October 31, 2014

    And yet Britney has never felt the need to throw unnecessary shade towards Janet Jackson who inspired her
    http://youtu.be/wTJ9e-Ruytk

  40. RICHIE_RICH October 31, 2014

    The Beyonce haters are too comical!!!!!! Carry on with y’all lies. Entertain me like Janet and Beyonce’.

  41. ChristinaMillion October 31, 2014

    Most of these new stans don’t even know the history behind Janet and Beyonce.

    • SMH October 31, 2014

      LOL there is no ¨history¨ behind Janet & Beyonce. Beyonce hasn’t been in the business long enough to even have ¨history¨ with Janet lol.

  42. Mark111 October 31, 2014

    Janet: Your fave’s fave.

    But Bey used to be crazy over Janet in DC days tho.

  43. TRUTH SERUM October 31, 2014

    Don’t believe the hype of the blogs Janet and Bey have always been cool. And I was a Janet Stan before people started using the word. Two queen that have two separate lanes.

    • RICHIE_RICH October 31, 2014

      Thank you Janet was my queen before Beyonce . I recall the media trying to make beef from Beyonce Elle interview.

  44. janetqueen1815 October 31, 2014

    Janet doesn’t like Beyonce so that collaboration will never happen. Beyonce is a theif a liar and completely disrespected Janet and her family in a very passive-aggressive way.

  45. TRUTH SERUM October 31, 2014

    That collaboration all ready happened. The record label put the kabosh on it when Janet had the super bowl fiasco.

  46. janetqueen1815 October 31, 2014

    No it didn’t truth serum and if that’s the case if beyonce is such a “fan” and she has so much power why didn’t she make sure the collaboration was still released?

  47. eric October 31, 2014

    I like this, but I have to say no to wanting a duet between the two.

  48. janetqueen1815 October 31, 2014

    Janet is a true legend an innovator, icon who has done things that were never seen before. While beyonce is a copycat who has never done anything original but has great marketing and knows how to shake her Ass. A collabo wouldn’t make sense. Janet and aaliyah made sense.

    • YISI October 31, 2014

      Janet and AAliyah makes a lot of sense seeing as neither could really sing that well to begin with.

      • SMH October 31, 2014

        And yet they’re both regarded as Icons & Legends. You can sit now.

      • Keeps Getting Worse October 31, 2014

        Preach it, Ni-gger.

    • BeyRihLiyah October 31, 2014

      and they was working on getting a collab together before she died

  49. fatusankoh October 31, 2014

    you go bey looking beautiful flawless haters have norting on you I love the look

  50. janetqueen1815 October 31, 2014

    The same beyonce stans in here are the same one who have also clowned and talk about Janet lol they’re hypocrites like she is lol

    • Molly October 31, 2014

      the hive are like that. they’re the fakest fan base out there.

  51. kingbeybitch October 31, 2014

    Most of these people who are hating are the same people just with different accounts. Its sad that Bey dressing up in a simple costumes got people in their feelings I can’t tho I’m scared for our future

  52. kingbeybitch October 31, 2014

    Anyways slay Bey slayyy!

  53. cocobutta October 31, 2014

    Is it just me that’s irked by Celebs thinking dressing up as anybody is classed as Halloween

  54. B2B October 31, 2014

    Okay so I respect Janet Jackson because she is a legend and she helped pave the way for females who dreamed of dancing on big stages; especially blacks. People on here (the Beyonce haters) are really stupid if they believe that Bey needs to copy or even want to be like Janet. On vocals alone, BEYONCE KILLS JANET JACKSON! All that damn whispering she does will not cut it anymore. Hence at the fact that Ciara is unemployed and Janet’s last few albums have Flopped! BRAVO BRAVO to her in her prime but what has she done lately? And also beyonce is an adult and may say what she pleases about Joe Jackson. If the Jackson’s didn’t want their business out there then they shouldn’t have brought their sob story to the GP! Joe Jackson did use them and everyone knows it! Sorry not sorry. I still respect Janet as a legend but facts are facts. BEYONCE LOOKS DAMN GOOD!!

    • waterfalls October 31, 2014

      I’m ok with everything but artistically, you can’t say that beyonce kills janet. She’s better vocally but she doesn’t have solid discography

      • joe davenport jr October 31, 2014

        i agree janet is a hip hop dancer/her rythmatic moves hip hop

    • SMH October 31, 2014

      Little boy, sit down. LOTS of people are better singers than Janet, yet she slays them ALL on ALL levels, including Beyonce. And only her last album ¨flopped¨, not her last few, get it right. And don’t act like Matthew Knowles didn’t pimp and use his daughter to make it in the business too, so have another several on that as well. Facts are indeed facts.

    • LOL October 31, 2014

      LOL HUSH, SILLY FLEA.

      MATTHEW KNOWLES WAS DESPERATEYONCE’S FIRST SLAVE DRIVER BEFORE HER CURRENT ONE JAY Z.

      THE ONLY THING STRUGGLEYONCE KILLS WITH HER NOCALS ARE EAR DRUMS.

      JANET IS HER SUPERIOR, BUG. NOW KEEP QUIET LOL.

  55. LOL as you ho’s October 31, 2014

    That’s right beyonce bow down b****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  56. B2B October 31, 2014

    And for the record, Keri Hilson has not written ANYTHING for Beyonce! Keri Hilson wrote the Female verse for Love in this club 2, which was ushers song. Usher chose Beyonce over Mariah Carey and Keri Hilson and Lil Wayne was chosen over Plies. So keep it cute Keri wishes she could get in the studio with Beyonce just like ALL y’all faves. Take note of the ass kissing Mrs. Carter receives globally; from sea to shinning sea.

    • Keeps Getting Worse October 31, 2014

      You’re a disgusting twink.

      • B2B October 31, 2014

        Thanks love

  57. pat October 31, 2014

    Beys a smart woman. I think she wants a collab. The press alone would b bigger than any other artist she could work with

    • Keeps Getting Worse October 31, 2014

      Sure Thang.

  58. Slay_Hive October 31, 2014

    Awww Bey looks so fresh faced and beautiful. Love the costume, but I doubt it means anything. Just a costume. Wouldn’t really care for them to collab.

  59. CICI LOVER October 31, 2014

    Girl copies other female artists even during Halloween!

  60. Truth.hurts October 31, 2014

    In your dreams B, you will NEVER be that talented!! SMH

  61. Keeps Getting Worse October 31, 2014

    Another day, another ni-gger.

  62. Keeps Getting Worse October 31, 2014

    MADONNA HAS ALWAYS BEEN MORE SUCESSFUL THAN JANET CUZ SHE’S NOT A NI-GGER

  63. girlbye October 31, 2014

    I mean it must be Halloween all the time for beyonce because shes been doing janet for years!

  64. Keri Qween October 31, 2014

    Janet an innovative legend with an iconic discography, something Beyonce wishes she had

    At 38 years old, Beyonce Is still singing ratchet anthems

  65. BeyRihLiyah October 31, 2014

    this post turned messy for no reason smh

  66. Joe Mama October 31, 2014

    “King B?” Something I missed?

  67. Diamond Princess October 31, 2014

    Janet doesn’t like Beyonce FACT! Her and Janet were supposed to do a project together but after the super bowl backlash Beyonce backed out. And we all know how Janet felt about Justin Timberlake among others who turned their back on her b/c of that… She said she learned who her true friends were and Mrs. Carter wasn’t one of them. Beyonce only likes to attach her name to someone on the rise of fame or popularity at the moment. Folks have anxiously been waiting for Janet’s return and many believe it will be epic. So it’s s cute and all that she wanted to dress up like her but I’m guessing she’ll need to do a whole lot more than that to get into Ms. Jackson’s good graces again.

  68. Room319 October 31, 2014

    As long as someone is dancing in heels and wearing jazzmatazz outfits, they will NEVER be able to wear Jan’s hat.

    Sorry, not happening.

    Decent attempt @ a costume, though.

  69. Blacksista October 31, 2014

    She just doesn’t have that quintessential smile and eyes that makes Janet. Sorry Bee you look Basic with clothes on.

  70. quetta October 31, 2014

    You people are hating on her for what? Because of a costume? Please grow up!

  71. Rihanna #1 fan t November 2, 2014

    GIVE CREDIT WHEN CREDIT IS DUE.. SHE LOOKED GOOD
