Behind the Scenes: Janet Jackson’s Stunning ‘Essence’ Magazine Shoot [Watch]

Published: Wednesday 20th Jun 2018 by Rashad

If ever you thought to question if Janet Jackson still had “it,” even at age 52, the pop royal sent out a ringing reminder with a stunning set of photos for Essence magazine’s July/August 2018 issue (click here to read more).

Serving high fashion alongside her signature megawatt smile, the diva accompanied her eye-catching set of snaps with some equally engaging quotes (namely about bouts with depression, the joys of motherhood, and so much more).  Now, as members of the #JanFam see their excitement reach a feverish pitch in preparation for the Grammy winner’s return to the Essence Festival stage, they’re invited to take a behind-the-scenes look at the magic that is her feature on and in the mag’s most recent edition.

See how it all unfolded inside:

    I wish she would give the jeans and heal wear out and about.. instead of that dry red ponytail and all black. It’s really time for her to step up and do it up out and about.

      For who and for what reason? She is already a legend. What are some heels and a wig gonna do?

    So what. JJ is Fifty-fifty Fifty-fifty Fifty-fifty Fifty-fifty Fifty-fifty. Why do you keep pulling her card again

      Because at her age, you will look beat up and brokedown, like a melon that’s fallen off a sky scraper. ?? Sit.

      Janet is not tarnishing her legacy like some of these other girls, her talent remains undiminished as she ages.
