What does your mother's voracious appetite have to do with anything?
Sorry, those fake cheeks are gross. She looks like that puppet Madam.
LOL@R12! (Even though it is passe nowadays to use LOL). Thanks for the memory of Madame, the puppet. I used to catch that act in Provincetown every summer until he died.
It looks like Janet has begun that long slippery weird road of facial surgery that Michael embarked on. She's starting to look mighty extraterrestrial here. Is she the new catwoman?
I put an ice cube on my ingrown pube.
She needs to stop with the surgery. She was very beautiful a few years ago. Age naturally from now on Janet.
What happened to her? Does she still have a career in music? She used to be such a big deal.
First of all, that's Instagram soft lighting. Second, she has granny hands.

The others are from Getty Images, duncehead. And she is gorgeous in all of them.
[quote]What happened to her? Does she still have a career in music? She used to be such a big deal.
She still is, which is why many pop artists of today are still covering her songs and referencing her as the pop icon that she is. What happened to her? She wrote a book a couple of years ago that went to #1 on the NY Times Bestsellers list, she went on a world tour last year, she's been making movies...
And Janet has not had any more surgeries. She looks better than many other female celebs her age, and she certainly looks younger than her 46 years.
She went on a world tour of 3,000-seat theaters.
Is she 40 now? Wiki says 46.
Yes, she's 46 years old.
[quote]She went on a world tour of 3,000-seat theaters.
The show was Up Close and Personal. It was driven by fan request--she would go and play in intimate venues wherever there was fan demand. She played everywhere--from the US and Canada to Europe, Africa and Asia. She had to extend some of the dates because the demand was so great. South America and Australia wanted her as well, but she wasn't able to visit those places last time around. I'm thinking whenever she tours again those will be the first places she goes. For an artist who hadn't had a new album in 4 years to sell out in all of those places is no small feat.
You seem to know (or think you know) an awful lot about a woman you're clearly not a fan of, R29. That show was cancelled because of the accident where the stage collapsed during a Sugarland concert. Janet was scheduled to play a day or so after that, but thought it best to cancel the show out of respect for those who lost their lives in the Sugarland incident. It had nothing to do with ticket sales. That article is baised.
AMFAR? What has she done for the gays? And she's marrying a Muslim, for chrissakes.
No thanks, Miss Nasty.
[quote]AMFAR? What has she done for the gays?
Are you slow? What has she done for gays? How about her tireless effort in supporting groups such as amfAR and GLADD? How about how she was the first black female to be honored with the GLADD Vanguard Award back in 2008?
In 2005, Janet received the Humanitarian Award from the Human Rights Campaign and AIDS Project Los Angeles in recognition of her involvement in raising funds for AIDS charities.
In 2008, Janet appeared in a public service announcement sponsored by the Logo television network and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) in response to the E.O. Green School shooting. The announcement discussed the murder of fifteen-year-old Lawrence "Larry" King and the safety of LGBT youth in public schools. Jackson states that "none of us are safe, until all of us are safe."
In November of 1997, Janet was honored by the National Black Lesbian and Gay Leadership Forum for her "The Velvet Ropet" album. The album was honored for its sexual orientation-related content, in addition to receiving the award for Outstanding Music Album at the 9th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in 1998.
Janet has many gay friends, and often speaks of her support for same-sex marriage. Her "The Velvet Rope" album is well-known for its anti-homophobia content, its themes of homosexuality and bisexuality, and for its massive hit single "Together Again", which celebrated the friends Janet has lost to AIDS.
[italic]"I don't mind people thinking that I'm gay or calling me gay. People are going to believe whatever they want. Yes, I hang out at gay clubs, but other clubs too. I go where the music is good. I love people regardless of sexual preference..."[/italic] --Janet
[italic]"We are delighted to honor Janet Jackson at the 19th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles as such a visible, welcoming and inclusive ally of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Ms. Jackson has a tremendous following inside the LGBT community and out, and having her stand with us against the defamation that LGBT people still face in our country is extremely significant."[/italic]
—GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano
That's quite a stretch, #32. A couple statuettes and some vague references on an album 16 years ago? Oh, and there was that appearance once on "Will & Grace"...
How about acknowledging that her dead brother was either gay or transgendered?
How insensitive and woefully ignorant you are, R34. Those things I posted are no stretch by ANY means, and it was a little more than some "vague references on an album 16 years ago." The Velvet Rope poignantly speaks on anti-homophobia on "Free Xone", and, as I stated, "Together Again" was dedicated to friends she'd lost to AIDS. There are also references to bisexuality throughout the album. She has supported gay causes for many years. I suppose you'd be happy if she just completely ignored our causes and charities, like so many other pop stars have. Get a life.
[quote]How about acknowledging that her dead brother was either gay or transgendered?
What in the hell does her talking about her brother's sexuality have to do with anything? The man is dead and gone. Some of you people are just rotten to the core.
JANBOT, a 3,000 seat auditorium is NOT considered a large venue. Where are you from, Bumfuck, North Dakota?
LOOK at the SAG on her TITS in that Ellen photo! HOLY SHIT!
R37/R38, get a fucking life. Your hate for a woman you don't even know is beyond pathetic. AS I SAID, the tour was UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. It was not billed as a Janet Jackson arena tour, it was billed as an UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL INTIMATE TOUR, and, for what it was, it did EXCEPTIONALLY WELL. She played all over the world, nitwit, and had to extend the tour because of demand. And she did it all with no new material to promote. Now, you can go have a seat in every last one of the chairs in those "3,000 seat auditoriums", bitch.
[quote]She looks amazing for 40
She was born in 1966; she's older than 40.
And she looks like she does because of all the PS she's had.
Jesus, those are some sad tits on Janet.
It's no secret that Janet Jackson is 46 years old, R40, but she looks every bit of 36 because she takes care of herself. If you consider a nosejob when she was 16 "all that PS", then you clearly don't have one clue about anything.
PLEASE Janbot, come back here and defend Janet's tits!
You simply cannot leave them undefended like this.
Didn't she have two of her ribs removed too? I also see some cheekbone work as well.
[quote]Jesus, those are some sad tits on Janet.
The only thing sad is you, as trolldar clearly indicates.
[quote]Didn't she have two of her ribs removed too?
Another urban legend--one of the more laughable ones, too. Of course, Janet isn't the only legendary diva to have been tagged with this charge. Cher was rumored to have had the same thing done. Alas, it's such a silly rumor because, how would one function and survive after such a surgery? I mean, the time it would take in healing alone...
[quote]I also see some cheekbone work as well.
The Jacksons are known for their high/prominent cheekbones. No work done there either.
LOL, obsessed JANBOT has a whole hard drive full of chubby Janet memorabilia! What a loser!
I LUUURVE the Janbot! She never disappoints!
You take the crown for "loser", R47, as trolldar shows you going from one Janet thread to another to spout bullshit about a woman you are so clearly in love with. It's like witnessing one of those kids in grade school who says nasty things about a girl because he really loves her. LMFAO!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
