It was announced yesterday that Janet Jackson will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. Finally. And this is good news, of course. But it’s also an opportunity to talk about why it’s late news. Because Janet has been eligible for induction since 2007. She wasn’t nominated until 2016. Full Story

Janet Jackson has released a new single and accompanying video, her first in three years. The song is “Made for Now”. This is the first thing I listened to when I woke up this morning, angry at my phone for going off at 5am even though that’s when I told it to go off last night. Like you, probably, it’s been a long week, I’ve had a lot to manage at home, at work, at everywhere. Full Story

A new era of Janet Jackson is coming. She’s been teasing it since May when she performed at the Billboard Music Awards and received the Icon Award. At the time, I wrote that I hoped the support we’ve been seeing for Janet via hashtags like #JusticeForJanet during the Super Bowl (#NeverForget) and the overwhelmingly positive response to her Billboards performance would extend into this album cycle. Full Story

There was speculation that Janet Jackson wouldn’t make it to Essence Fest this year. Her father, Joe Jackson, died on June 27th. No one knew if Janet’s grief would make it to headline one of the biggest music festivals in the world.  Apparently, Janet didn’t know either. She did end up at Essence Fest and slayed her performances Full Story

Janet Jackson became the first black woman to win the Billboard Icon Award last night. When do I get to stop writing the words “the first black woman to…”? Of course, Janet deserves all the things so it’s about time she was given this award. Janet performed for the first time on television in almost a decade and she still made almost every other artist half her age look like a hot mess. Full Story

Justin Timberlake “made peace” with Janet Jackson...?

This is the headline you will read all day and probably tomorrow. That, after leaving Janet Jackson for dead after the Super Bowl in 2004, Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson actually “made peace”. Those aren’t the words that come of out his mouth though. Those are the words that Zane Lowe put in his mouth, to which he replies, “Absolutely”. Full Story
