Behind the Scenes: Janet Jackson’s Fierce Billboard Magazine Shoot [Video]

Published: Friday 18th May 2018 by Rashad

Our excitement rivals that of the #JanFam as time grows closer to Janet Jackson‘s sure-to-be-stageblazing performance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards (click here to read more about that) on Sunday (May 20).

The Music Industry Bible recently sent that anticipation into overdrive with the unveiling of the newest ‘Billboard magazine’ featuring none other than the pop queen as the centerpiece.  Dishing on everything from new music, motherhood, and more (click here to read more), chatter about the quotables from the interview only paled in comparison to the stunning collection of photos that accompanied it.

Curious to see the lens magic before the final products?  Look inside for a behind-the-scenes video of all the action from the shoot:

    I’m over the whispers…

      I’m over you thinking anyone cares about your queeny opinion. You troll every Janet post with the same verbiage. Accept the reality that you are an undercover Janet fan. I bet her song Feedback brings out your inner b|tch.

      That whisper is my mood stabilizer for the day. Janet’s voice is everything it needs to be and everything I want it to be. It must be working for the millions of other fans who love her too! Get on board or find another ride, cause this is Janet’s year and she’s not slowing down for anybody! Let’s goooo!!

    I’ll never be over the ICONIC whisperer! I love her silky smooth harmonies!

    Her songs Enjoy, When We Oooh, and China Love >>>>

    I love Janet and can’t wait to see her lit the stage Sunday!

    The jacksons have sad self hatred for their african ancestry. They blatantly have european children and passing them off as their own. Its heartbreaking that their talent won’t live on. Sorry

      Janet needs to open up to the world about Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeries…… tell us exactly what his mental illness was

      Michael Jackson had a mental illness

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) May 19, 2018

        I don’t think Janet knows that though. The coroner is the person who can answer those questions about plastic surgery and he already did. How can Janet answer questions about a brother she only saw once or twice a year? Michael was heavily guarded and he was great at coming up with medical reasons why he go surgery to family and after a while his family probably stopped asking questions about it. Michael was great at explaining away his mental illness too so I doubt Janet knows more than the public knows about that. Bashir interviewed Michael and you have to read between the lines to see his mental illness. Also, if you watch that interview on mute and observe the artwork in his home you will see things too.

      Janet was going to mary JD and talked about having his baby on Oprah. HE CHEATED ON HER AND SHE LEFT HIM, so your logic is flawed. Janet loves every race and just so happened to have a baby with her last husband at 51. You’re a delusional negro

      B!the Bey could never and THAT’S why you punk ass mad! #Janet

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) May 19, 2018

      Jj self-hate and ignorance are two different things. The Jacksons are uneducated and when they moved to LA it made matters worse because everyone around them were rich white people. Many black uneducated black people have a lack of knowledge about African ancestry, only white artwork in their homes, etc but that does not mean they suffer self-hate. You are lumping all the Jacksons together. Janet has dated different races (black, mexican, white, middle eastern, etc). Love is love. It is not defined by race.

    Enough with Janet! She is not Michael. She got lucky, that’s all. Not the real deal. I mean , really?

    • Haterz Gon’ Hate May 19, 2018

      Beyotch please. Real deal? 70% of today’s artists are not ‘The Real Deal’. Many of artists over the years have taken notes from Miss Jackson. She doesn’t try to be Michael – the lessors wish they had her discography and this is the second time being crowned an ICON. Can you spell that? ?

      Next Hater please. ??????

    • RoyalKev May 19, 2018

      Lucky? She’s scored her 7th #1 album almost 30 years after ‘Control’ last time she was out, Which allowed Janet to have a #1 album in 80s, 90s, 00’s and ’10s! If this is luck, anyone that comes close enough to touch her hands should immediate play lotto!

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 19, 2018

      Janet is the blueprint boo. Even Michael knew that

  5. RoyalKev May 19, 2018

    Janet looks pretty fierce! I love several of the photos that came about during the shoot! I can’t wait to see this trailblazing, innovative, multi talented, QUEEN destroy the stage come Sunday! It’s perfect timing for her to be given this honor and obviously so well deserved! Janet’s a true treasure and you don’t stumble across this type of artistry generation after generation! Janet’s EVERYTHING to the world of dance and music! She’s pioneered everything imaginable, which falls under that umbrella!

    THE QUEEN OF STAGE. Rhythm nation is still most ICONIC dance video of all time
