Back in December, Janet Jackson postponed her Unbreakable tour, telling fans that she had to have surgery. There followed all kinds of rumours about her being sick and a few weeks later she had to post a message on Twitter denying that she had cancer. Full Story

TMZ reported today that Janet Jackson has been confirmed to perform at the first major sporting event since, well, you know. Apparently she’ll be singing at the Dubai World Cup, “the world’s richest horse race”. I’m so happy to learn this. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable tour stopped in Toronto last night. Unfortunately because our dog Marcus is still in the hospital, I couldn’t go. Several of my friends and colleagues did though, live-texting me through the night to help me feel like I was there.  Read Full Intro

Thanks to all of you who’ve been emailing your thoughts after seeing Janet Jackson in Vancouver last night. As you know, she kicked off the Unbreakable tour there and, well, so far, at least the way it’s looking in my inbox, the consensus is that she was The Best. If you’re worried about her movement… don’t be. Full Story

Janet wall-dancing

Few people do slow jam wall-dancing better than Janet Jackson. And that’s how she opens the video for No Sleeep. That’s the gift we’ve been given this week after 5 days of great gossip… New Janet! But familiar hair! And that familiar sexiness.  So that it’s fresh but still feels old school. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Younger, faster, stronger? Most of the time, I guess.

But if you watched the BET Awards last night and the tribute to Janet Jackson, that choreography not only still holds up, it’s a challenge for the new generation. And the drop-step-walk from Rhythm Nation will never, ever, ever not look good. So, no, that is definitely not the end. Janet is back. And she more than made up for the excessive amount of Chris Brown during the show.

Smokey Robinson did too. First Smokey lectured the audience about being too far up their own asses and to stop being so spoiled. “So don’t be so full of yourselves.” And this happened right after Diddy introduced him after bigging himself up first. Then Smokey performed and I almost got pregnant. Like, if I had any interest in having a baby, Smokey would have made that happen.

More BET Awards coverage to come.

Yours in gossip,

Monday morning. And a bonus. A surprise bonus. Isn't it better this way? Instead of all kinds of teasing, followed by technical f-ckups, don't you love it when it just happens without warning? Janet Jackson has a new album coming. She's going on tour. Page Six Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I bought Janet Jackson tickets on presale yesterday. Set my alarm for it at 10am to click on the AMEX Front Of The Line link. September 15 in Toronto. During TIFF. I thought that would be my highest Miss Jackson point of the day.

But then I listened to the 43 seconds of new music she posted on Twitter. God her voice sounds so much like Michael’s. At the end of that clip though?

Love…reverberated?

That feels like it’s about to kick in to a funky ass beat, right?

 

Or, you know, it doesn’t have to. Janet’s given us a lot of ballads too. The last time I saw her on tour – and this was a looong time ago – she did a Come Back to Me/Let’s Wait A While/Again medley that I call up on YouTube a couple of times a year.

So yeah, if the new album is ballads, that works for me too.

Here’s Janet at LAX yesterday looking like she’s in tour shape. I just got goosebumps.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
