Over at Janet’s Official forum a 52 page (yes 52 page!) chat was conducted with her Creative Director and Choreogropher, Gil. The following is an overview of what he said. Many questions are answered here.

Future Appearances

Janet will be at Jennifer Hudson’s pre-Oscar party held by Jamie Foxx this Wednesday, so I guess we can expect new pics soon.
Janet will be visiting the board when things are set in stone. She’s really busy right now, so that’s why she hasn’t been on here.

Tour/Business Affairs

Janet still has a manager and a publicist and once things are cleared up, she will future events will be announced.
Janet is currently in Los Angeles
Janet wants to tour for the fans and we won’t hear about a tour unless it’s coming from a PR person. When that will happen is unclear.
The tour is supposed to be worldwide, including Europe and Australia; they want to hit up everywhere.
The concepts, the choreography, the staging, setlist, costumes, etc. have already been completed for the tour.
When asked if Janet still owed Virgin anything on her contract, he said Janet doesn’t owe anyone anything, so I guess we can take it that her contract obligation is completed.
The tour is supposed to be an all out dance/artistic show.
The tour will not open nor will it end with Weekend and Just a Little While
As far as getting good seats, some people in the back might win front row seats as well as diehard fans.
The dancers are fine
The Call on Me choreography will be on the tour
There will be a Meet and Greet
Do it 2 Me and other uptempo songs off of 20 Y.O. will be performed

Future business/life

Janet is talking to another label right now, but the label she is considering is remaining confidential and she is getting offers from different labels.
She is NOT pregnant (I told yall rolleyes.gif )
It is uncertain whether or not she would release one of her old concert DVD’s
He also suggested she should release her unreleased songs and that might actually happen
Janet will make a deep album and voice her opinion
Empty will not be performed
It was Janet’s idea to have less girls; Danielle was not meant for a group thing, which is why she’s no longer there.
Some of her music will be used as a soundtrack but the time frame is unknown
There will be a new fan site
This board will probably be closed
No future promo for 20 Y.O., including performances

Never has gotten into a fight that Gil had to break up
Janet did not fight Paula; Gil claims that Paula probably fought herself.

For those of you who bothered to read all of that (lol), I am pleased that Janet is making moves to sort out her career etc.

I guess the rumours of a Whitney/Bobby reconciliation have been proven wrong. Besides Whitney’s spokesperson recently putting out a statement to deny the claims, take a look at these pics:

Still in shock about this one. This chick SHUT IT DOWN on ‘And I’m Telling You’:

Tamia is currently on tour, check out this video highlighting one of the stops:

Was gonna report on the Britney situation but I’m sure you know about that already. I also can’t be bothered with her nonesense anyway…

Flamingo Las Vegas headliner Toni Braxton helped make this an extra special Valentine’s Day for one local Las Vegas couple. During her famous love song “Unbreak My Heart,” Toni welcomed Jeff Merkle on stage where he surprised his girlfriend Monica Dyer by dropping to one knee and proposing to her in front of the sold-out crowd. She happily accepted and the couple received a standing ovation from the audience and slow danced on stage as Toni continued the ballad. Toni will be performing during the NBA All-Star game tomorrow on TNT.

Nice story. I hear about stuff like this all the time and the woman always says ‘Yes’. Imagine if the answer was a ‘No’; now that would have been awkward.

A new song by Chilli, formerly of R&B girl group TLC, has hit the net called Straight Jack. She’s now signed to rapper Akons own label – Konvict Music; he promised her album will surprise alot of people. If this is any indication of what is to come then she should just go back to the studio. I’m not liking this one at all. Missy Elliott’s feature does nothing for the track either; I can’t stand that bogus Jamaican accent she puts on.
Anyway I’ll let you be the judge….
At long last the new Kelly Rowland single has leaked. I’m liking it…nice uptempo. Can def see what she meant by a more R&B/Pop direction.

What do you think?

Beyonce On Leno Part 1:

Beyonce On Leno Part 2:

Cool interview. She seems more relaxed in her interviews nowadays.
Speculation is mounting that Beyonce and Jay Z have split (ain’t we heard that one before?). This time may be for real though. They have not been seen together for some time now and Jay’s increasingly suspect lyrics (i.e. Lost Ones) may prove that they are done.
Dunno if this is true but if it is then oh well. Both their profiles were raised off the back of the other so its all good.
According to MCODB, a fan who attended the Pinko party last night spoke with one of Mariah’s people – Mark Sudack (a member of her management team) and was able get to the following regarding her new album:
– They have a title, and its certainly not Illusions: The Butterfly Within (the rumoured title).
– The album is NOT in a complete or near complete state. Mariah will be putting her full focus on it immediately after completion of the filming of the Tennessee movie.
– They do have an album title.
– If there are two albums this year (as Def Jam claimed), one will be the mainstream studio album and the second will be a Christmas one.
– The album will be released last quarter. Nothing until after September.


Solange Knowles and the Denver Nuggets JR Smith look real ‘comfortable’ with each other in this pic. Is this chick even married still? Thinking about it, I don’t think I’ve seen her with her ‘husband’ in a long while. Is Papa Knowles trying to cover up his castaway daughter’s divorce?

Veteran singer Diana Ross was reportedly shocked when she was invited by Oscar representatives to sing one of the nominated songs from the musical ‘Dreamgirls’, at the Oscar ceremony.

The legend has earlier admitted that she hasn’t watched the film, which is based on her rise to fame with ‘The Supremes’, and that she would watch it with her lawyer.

“I haven’t seen it – maybe I should see it with my lawyer,” she has been quoted as saying. LOL

However, Ms Ross is yet to respond to the invitation to sing at the event, scheduled on February 25. It would’nt surprise me if she did, her latest album ‘I Love You’ flopped hard upon release last month, so she needs the promo.

Hudson, Holiday and now potentially Diana. The Oscars should be good.
