Janet Jackson and MTV have kissed and made up. It's the least they could do since the network (and JD) helped to ruin her career. Now comes word that MTV has green lighted a reality TV show where Janet will go on the search for the next Superstar.

According to Variety, Janet is developing a music competition for MTV. "It’s really about finding who’s the next Janet Jackson or Justin Timberlake or Usher," said exec producer Dave Broome.

MTV's cameras will follow Janet into YMCAs (?), church groups and local community centers to cast hopefuls. Producers haven't decided what to do with the winner yet. Maybe he/she will get two tickets to Jackson’s upcoming tour?

I'm yawning already.

    Did somebody say something about a TV show? I guess I need to go back and read.

    First!

    Is the corner thataway?>>>>>>>>>>

  • MzDetermined

    I think it would be good. I would watch!

    Po thang I cant believe her career is at this point I bought her last CD...

    But wait a min, Janet got more than a enough to feed a few villages and buy a country, maybe she should retire, and take the short man with her.

  • candycane

    Awwwwwwww shyt, the cd promo is over and Janet is getting a lil plump again. Is it healthy for your weight to go up and down so much. Still, she's sooooooo pretty

  • MOCHAMOMMY

    We're outside Prynsexxx... And while yall are yawning, I'm already asleep. I mean, really Janet? Does anyone care about what u do or dont do? How about u retire & stop reaching?

    I look forward to seeing the show, but what will they do to overcome Janet's severe shyness? It's painful to watch her interviews. I can't imagine what a reality show will be like with her at the helm. For that reason alone, I want to see how it turns out. She's my girl so I have her back and wish her luck.

    @ prynsexxx ... come on outside .. we got some skin so soft and spf 30 ..

    I don't think Janet is meant to be Hollywood slim. She has to work too hard to maintain it. A Marine recruiter recently told me that he thinks that whatever weight you are at after 6 weeks of boot camp is the weight you should be. His logic was that for that period you are forced to eat healthy and exercise and if that doesn't get you skinny then you weren't meant to be skinny. I believe that.

    janet is NOT shy......don't let the soft voice and act fool you!

  • MOCHAMOMMY

    My boyfriend is gonna speak at my funeral, is that ok? He's gonna blame my death on Kymystry's comment!!

  • pointhimout

    good for her. i think it's time janet seriously start transitioning from FT singer to having more of a tv or big screen presence.

    i'd definitely watch it.

  • Sharonda

    I mean we already know who the next Janet Jackson is, The Next Usher or should I say Michael Jackson and the next Justin Timberlake, but who wants to be like him???*crikets* Ok I thought so.I understand their motive, but like Sandra, this is a YAAWNERZZZ..

  • brwnsugga4you

    i'm only watching if they are going to show her brother marlon passing out the smiley face stickers at the walmart.

  • http://notenoughrealmen.blogspot.com 2thick4u

    I think people would like exposure but I hope they do get an incentive at the end!!!

  • Kymystry

  • ckarinwhite

    She's an icon!!! Why are they watering her image down that's why artists like MJB ( MJB is the girl!!!) are surpassing her now. I don't understand why is he doing the Mariah Carey with Janet..... nooooo that is a horrible mistake. Janet can make an tour off her old material and sell out more crowds and venues than with the new material. They are not marketing her right in my opinion!
