Watch: Janet Jackson Reflects on Her Iconic Music Videos

Published: Friday 17th Dec 2021 by Sam

As legends go, few can rival the impact made by Janet Jackson. 

Indeed, for almost five decades, the diva has dazzled with music and visuals that have changed the Pop culture landscape forever.

In a special feature for Allure, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer sat down to reflect on some of her most memorable music videos.

From ‘Scream’ with her brother Michael Jackson to ‘Together Again’ to Busta Rhymes collaboration ‘What’s It Gonna Be,’ the Pop queen mused on the process of piecing together the iconic clips – peppering in a number of previously unknown tidbits.

The segment precedes the superstar’s hotly-anticipated two-night Lifetime documentary event, ‘Janet,’ which will see her lift the lid on her story like ever before.

Ahead of its premiere in early 2022, check out the Allure feature after the jump…

    Janet Jackson is the Queen some people talk as if she should look the same way years ago she older living in her own skin not yours. She has a son and trying to live her life as an human being every celebrities got there our style as for Jlo i seen her not so fancy up she look older make up and dress up is for show everyone looks naturally sometimes. Janet is being hetself she did that and done that she has nothing to prove but only to her son. She got money. I see why she sometimes dont read comments some are rediclious. You criticize Janet Jackson but she been famous since a child. Respect her.

    • Yvonne December 19, 2021

      Tell it!!

    • Yvonne December 19, 2021

      Yes! Md. Jackson’s career has been long lasting! Iconic!!

    • Kevin December 19, 2021

      Well said

  10. Zion December 19, 2021

    She’s nearly 70, she looks great!

  11. Fiesty1 December 19, 2021

    Not understanding why mostly hateful comments. Im not necessarily a a Janet fan, but having grown up in that era, i can understand the work ethic the whole family had. She collaberated with quite a few people in the industry that had vision and creativity. What are you superficial people doing with YOUR lives? Everything is not about outer appearances. Most of you with negative comments probably dont like your own self. In these days of mostly naked rap videos largely about s** acts, she created visuals that made statements and trends. If you dont have anything poitive to say, stay off the comments and get a life! Janet has hers.

  12. Nicola December 19, 2021

    I love me some Janet Jackson. Always iconic. Love you Mama❤
