Ciara Wilson presented Janet Jackson with the prestigious Rock Star Award at the 2018 Black Girls Rock! Show at NJPAC in New Jersey on Sunday, August 26.

Ciara couldn’t contain her excitement as she shared the same stage as the pop icon.

“Janet to me is one of the most valuable artists of all time. Everything she does is perfection. It says a lot to me. It says you gotta care. You gotta give 100% every time. You gotta show up every time,” Ciara said.

The “Level Up” singer wore a Balmain gown, while Janet, 52, graced the red carpet in a pouffy, embroidered Christian Siriano original from his Fall/Winter 2018 line.

Janet told the audience: “Black women rock now more than ever, and girls, all I can say is rock on.”

Ciara took to Instagram to share her excitement with her followers.

“It was truly an Honor presenting the Rockstar Award to my Friend, Icon, and Legend @JanetJackson. Forever cherishing these moments. @BlackGirlsRock#BlackGirlsRock”

    Ciara giving me Kenya Moore vibe in the face in the very first pic. Congrats JJ.

  • WhoKnew

    I know for a fact that I would get dragged to the mountaintop, down the street to the corner store and back if I say anything at all about that garish looking dress Janet is wearing so I am not going to say nuffin but congrats Janet.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I lovvveeee Janet ?
    And Ciara looks nice.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Why CiCi face look different??? Nonetheless, they are beautiful women. I still LOVE me some Janet Jackson.

  • WhoKnew

    Would like to see Janet and CiCi in a “level up” dance off challenge.

  • Rayne

    MJ would be proud of his equally talented sister Janet.That is left to carry on The Jackson legacy.

  • Ni Ni

    Chile, i dont care about getting dragged?, Janet’s look has been off for a while and I’m not talking about her dress (deep sigh?). Nevertheless, i love Janet and congrats!

  • SoulfulLove

    I thought Ciara was Kenya Moore

  • Vegas1989

    That’s a good one…I would join in but I have to stretch real good….Because my muscle don’t recover fast like back in the day.
    LOL

  • Vegas1989

    It’s her hair. I like how she’s wearing her hair on these pics…Keep it like this…

  • Vegas1989

    I should Level Up on out of here…Let me put on my wireless headphone and dance my behind out of here in 45 minutes….LOL…I might just dance off Missy and Ci Ci…Music my me Lose Control….

  • AmericanDream

    Oh man ci-error came back down on planet earth . I remember the days when she was irked when folks said her style was Janet Jackson-ish , which is true . Instead of humbly accepting the comparison , her ignorant ass was on ego trip

    At 50+ Janet’s latest video has more than 20M views on YouTube , meanwhile Ciara can’t even crack the top40.

  • Vegas1989

    I want to comment too….So I’m going to type you my comment about …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..LOL…I hope that you are about to read my comment about JJ. I type it using my invisible keyboard…..LOL…

  • Guess Who

    Who the hell styled Ms. Jackson’s hair? Lazy bastid!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Janet’s face looks slightly swollen…Ciara finally stopped bleaching I see.

  • abby500

    Janet….imma leave it all alone.

  • MsPam

    Aretha is at the funeral home laughing at Ciara’s statement. Janet please stop with the ponytails your hair is thinner than rice paper.

  • dru and neil

    Both ladies look nice??

  • dru and neil

    Stop that! That’s Janet!?

  • Logan Roberts

    Janet no baby, that hairstyle is so unflattering on your already pulled tight face. Ciara dress is kinda cute.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I ain to fond of Damita Jo ponytail,but she still looks good. C’era looks good.

  • Yui

    Janet looked just like her daddy in that profile pic with Ciara.

  • Renee26

    Love Janet’s dress hate that ponytail… Something looks very odd around the head area

  • Renee26

    Those sagging jaws

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Beautiful

  • Yui
  • GrapeCrush

    I’m one of Janet’s biggest fans but I’m gonna go ahead and say what I’ve been thinking for quite some time. Y’all can drag me all you want cause I’ll drag ya azzez right back…she look like she had work done on her face and it didn’t turn out well at all. She looks like a muppet. The lower half of her face looks really swollen. Not sure if it’s due to cheek implants? And then drawing on eyebrows that reach her hairline is a no no. Her hair looks like a radio tower. Love you Janet but you need to throw this whole look away. You don’t even look like yourself anymore. ?

  • GrapeCrush

    Ciara, keep the dark hair babe…it looks really really good on you! ??

  • Jussjess25

    Wow just realized how badly janet ruined her beautiful face smh and skin complexion smh

  • Jussjess25

    Thank you!! I thought ut was just me. I was like wtf??

  • Shira Harding-James

    Ciara looks sooooo good y’all!!

  • KcoolMuziq

    It’s not a WOMAN in the entertainment industry that haven’t had any form of work done on their face or body.
    Janet is still beautiful and she DOESN’T look like a Muppet!

    How dare U insult her like that! PLEASE don’t consider yourself a fan.She WILL NOT miss U.

  • Applebootay

    Yes, I noticed it and I second that…throw it away and I love her too.

  • Applebootay

    For why thooooooo?

  • Yui

    Couldn’t help it. All I read was sagging jaws.

  • GrapeCrush

    How dare YOU try to admonish me for having an opinion! Chile Bye! I’m not knocking anyone for getting work done. Their money…THEIR business. But I don’t have to like it. And I’ll say wtf I want, whenever I want. My whole point is that whatever she’s done to her face doesn’t look good. I said what I said…deal with it. I’m a FAN, not a STAN honey…Looks like you’re going to have to address a whole lot of folks in here cause I see there are many who agree with me. ??

  • GrapeCrush

    Lol, right??

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    So, we just gonna let Janet’s stylist lynch her curls like that and get away with it???!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Bashi22

    Bwoy Bwoy these Jackson family members destroy their faces with plastic surgery. I really want to know the deep issue behind it

  • JENNYJONES1

    I’VE BEEN SAYING SHE NEEDS A NEW STYLING TEAM ALL AROUND, CLOTHING, MAKE UP AND HAIR. SHE’S ALWAYS LOOKING A MESS TO ME…….JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. This read really crazy. Are you her spokesperson or something? Rofl

  • JENNYJONES1

  • GrapeCrush
  • Blak

    WTF is going on with Janet’s face and why is she trying to look like cat woman????????

  • Malcom Flex

    Unlike the rest of the fools below nitpicking I’m bowing down to the one and only MISS JACKSON. IDGAF what she does to her face (as most stars do) I care about her LEGACY and ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENTS!

  • Malcom Flex

    What about the KARDASHIANS ? Kneegrows so hard on each other!!!

  • Malcom Flex

    Who cares what you think who are YOU???

  • Malcom Flex

    RIGHT!!

  • Malcom Flex

    Dissing BW is like shooting fish in a barrel it’s a PUNK MOVE. These FOOLS would be crying if she suddenly dropped dead. No respect for a LIVING LEGEND.

  • Malcom Flex

    LOL!!!

  • Karen Brady

    I thought cat woman too.

  • Karen Brady

    giggling

  • Karen Brady

    me too!

  • Carrington

    Jan is my cousin and I’m her biggest fan, but she needs to fire her stylist(s) from clothes to hair, her choreographer and, her creative director. She simply doesn’t look good with her hair pulled back so tightly that it makes MY eyes water.

    I can’t take another performance that I’m looking forward to, only to have Jan show up like an old school review doing a Nasty, Control, What Have You Done For Me Lately, All For You, medley with the EXACT same choreography that she’s been doing for the past 20 years.

    The Beyhive is crazy asf and Janet don’t give me NO ammunition to fight them MFs with.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Lawd this dam question AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! Don’t worry about! She ain’t mad nor seem concern. She still living her best life!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Yes!

  • justlooking
  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    I just heard Level up by mistake.. anywhoo she deserves all of them awards.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    My first Fav , Janet is the only Jackson I’m a fan of ?????. Rhythm Nation was my first concert ever at Capital Center!!!

  • KcoolMuziq

    LIES! Janet’s choreography has changed with EVERY TOUR.

  • MRiGOThim

    what the heck did both of them have on…are those vulture features they rockin??? o_0

  • CookieMobster

    What in the WhoVille hair is going on here. She must have a bunch of yes men or women around her, that clearly do NOT have her best interest on the forefront of their minds. She still the ? though.

  • Faithz

    Omg Lmao

  • Faithz

    Janet, and Ciara look very Nice.

  • MsPam

    Joe Jackson.

  • Tlowe89

    Janet looks wonderful from the neck down. I wishe she would’ve done a different hairstyle. Hell if she would’ve worn her hair like Ciara it would’ve been beautiful with that dress

  • Tlowe89

    Lol I heard a clip of it in basketball wives and was wondering what in the world is she talking about… is this a kids bop song for zahir… yummy in my tummy ?

  • Bashi22

    But Jackson’s was before Kartrasians. The Kardashian’s want to have black features for Blackmen to lovd white girls with black features

  • FukkFolks2018

    Two of my fave ladies to EVER dance. Yasss.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Mine too. Chapel Hill NC! And my cousins in Mobile got to go in Pensacola! It was a dope time. And we still going to Janet concerts!

  • FukkFolks2018

  • Alicia.Ashe

    The top of Ciara’s dress is giving me 80s vibe. Black girls do rock.

  • lashae john

    Beautiful Queens

  • Ryan

    Speaking of Black Girls Rock Jemele Hill’s contract buyout from ESPN is for 6 MILLION!!

    And Janet, stop trying to make it so hard for me to keep loving you.

  • Coy little wink

    Janet…the dress is very feminine love the navy and the lace overlay…

    but you added that bondage belt with straps connected to a spiked collar…topped off with that wacky hairdo…that is high level misconduct you are too old for this https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3bd9fdeb09137cbfc814b8525031737fe9aa3562494aced24b4dbe1d67b9c896.gif

  • FukkFolks2018

    Yep! I’m happy for Jemele!!! She DID that

  • FukkFolks2018

    I’m a huge fan. But y’all. Stop lying to yaself. Janet looks a mess 2nd pic with side profile. A claymation faced ass mess. This is like cheating at solitaire. Only person you lying to is you. Shit. Gn

  • FukkFolks2018

    I liked it. But she maimed herself. Own it

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Yep that’s how I heard it , just tragic

  • Lady_Elle

    I was thinking the same… she reminds me of the wicked witch from the Wiz! rofl

  • Lady_Elle

    Janet looks like she has a penis growing out of her head… wtf???

  • Dahl

    Yeah, the hair is no bueno…

  • missmiami305

    Ciara looks aged. Maybe it’s her makeup.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Tragic is one of my favorite descriptive words. My friend asked how was my escapade with lil soft short dyck dude. I should’ve gone fishing. TRAGIC

  • Lady_Elle

    She looks a bit tired. I think.

  • missmiami305

    Yep! Up close.

  • Solstice

    Lmao!!!! ???

  • Solstice

    ? Bye girl!! Lmao ?? goodnight ?

  • ?? ?ee?? ???

    This is the worst I’ve seen Janet and C-Error look. Janet’s dress looks like something you would wear to a high school Junior prom and her hair stylist was trying to re-visit her Velvet Rope era days but it turned out to be another “error” instead. That stick on top of her apple shaped head makes her look like a Christmas tree ornament and the hair is the piece you hang it on the tree by.
    Her plastic surgeon snatched the skin on her face for filth. I’ve seen closeup pictures of her with no makeup on and she looks horrible. She is not a natural beauty. This look and all that fabric just thrown together at the bottom of her dress makes me think every time I see her that her team is laughing at how much of a mess she looks like as soon as she walks out the door.
    If you look closely also you’ll see she’s actually wearing a spiked choker dog collar! Girl Byeeee ???

  • missmiami305

    ?????

  • ?? ?ee?? ???

    What are they honoring her for again??! Most fake surgically altered human?? Walking hysterics.

  • MythCalledLove

    Janet is one no half a step to joining the Jackson Plastic Surgery Club. And you said Ciara? Where? Which pic? She didn’t get plastic surgery its something like a face transplant. Looks good but you could be sitting next to her on a plane & wouldn’t even know it.

  • MythCalledLove

    Like when my mom would make your ponytail so tight you just start speaking Chinese. “Ahhh what you do to my hair”

  • MythCalledLove

    “Don’t nobody bring me no bad news” Your comment was spot on.. Lol Rogers mom from What’s Happening wasn’t her throne a toilet bowl??

  • MythCalledLove

    65 shades of navy??!! Hey sounds good to me. They had gray time for a new twist.. Lol

  • CopperCutie

    Janet’s face and hair are way too tight. Still looks better than Beyonce and that blonde trash on her head.

  • What???
  • ?? ?ee?? ???

    ???

  • Soon2BWife

    Janet looks like a damned fool.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Listen. I’ve loved Penny forever&ever but I can’t lie. First thing I wondered was ‘why in the hell is Jan looking like a Whoville reject w/that ponytail yanked so tight??’ She’s really trying every trick in the book to lift her face. You’re still a beauty, Ms. Jackson. It’s okay to look your age…our 50ish ain’t nearly like theirs. Embrace it, Boo!

  • oshh16

    W e all love Janet. The hair is a mess. Maybe on someone else but not J.

    And I LOVE J.

  • Bashi22

    Yes he’s handsome alone with his siblings, however I seriously think they brainwash. I known deep down in Katherine Jackson heart she wonders why her children do so much plastic surgery.

  • Li-Wright

  • Trace da Ace

    Hey Janet….I love you….and I know you were going for some type of “edgy look”..but your ponytail looks like Sasquatch got his dick caught up in a Chinese finger trap or something….tell your stylist to do better….but I still love you!!!!

  • iWasteTime

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ciara looks matronly.
    Janet looks as if she is wearing her Halloween mask a couple of months early.

  • HelloToni

    Ciara is a good choice. She looks good.

  • WhoYouTalkingAbout

    Love CiCi, Love Janet, Hate the hair. That is all.

    Janet has one of the best smiles ever!!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Soon as she got that one record she moved from Atlanta to Hollywood she was looking for nothing but a come up to find somebody’s who money she could spend long term she thought it was going to be future that’s why her claws popped out when he kicked her to the curb..but she found a simp she could control in that ball player

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    EVERYONE LOOKED HEALTHY AND HAPPY. Just wondering why most decided to wear drabby colors. Black women are colorful. I feel .at this event they should have worn more uplifting colors and prettier dresses!

    Janet with the EJ Johnson lower jaw… ?

  • Marlika

    Janet’s edges are too thin for her to keep pulling her hair back in those tight ass ponytails.?????

  • Mz_Opinionated

    You gotta log off! LMAO!!!

  • L. Thompson

    Level Up your bank account first.

  • L. Thompson

    You sound stupid. Ciara has had no surgery done to her face. Age, weight loss, better makeup and hair is the only difference.

  • L. Thompson

    What???? You sound hurt, jealous and misinformed.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Right.

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • teather

    LOL!! WE are crazier than crazy. LOL!

  • teather

    I wish Janet would pick a new stylist. None of this has worked for her for a while and I’m a fan. Since she’s a bit larger in the face, why would you put a huge d*ck on her head? Why? the larger than life phallic symbol? Is this a subliminal message to her ex. I just can’t. Stop with the frufru tulle and such. Just go sleak and lovely as Janet is.

  • SpiceGirl

    oh my…….

  • Browneyes

    I need Janet to stop with this hairstyle. It’s too much like Eartha Kitt. Looking like her face lift is too tight

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Janet looking just like Joe in that second pic.

    Who hurt you boo?

    Sweetheart she’s had A LOT OF SURGERY TO HER FACE! Are you actually saying these lies?? She’s had at least two nose jobs and some work to change the pronouncement of her jawline . It’s very obvious. All the exercise and dieting in the world won’t change the shape of your nose.

  • ?? ?ee?? ???

    Are you a family member of C-Error?

  • Jersey Girl

    Agreed. ? Colors Against our skin..it’s just magical?

  • jsfayce

    how r these two representing women when clearly they are men?

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Lol ????

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    What is the cost of your soul… Lets ask Jermaine or Randy who both married the same woman and both have childen with her, lets ask La Toya who married a man 40 years her senoir told all her family secrets and posed for playboy, no what about Janet who hid her pregnancy and two marriages and calles her father Joe because she said feels no connection to him. We can ask Catherine she was married to him I am sure he was an awesome husband since he cheated constantly and has outside children. Better yet let’s call Michael in heaven and see what he has to say on the subject. …..nevermind!!!!!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Shut up

  • LP

    Beautiful women, but I hate Janet’s hair. She has too much face for a style like that. They both look better than me though lol

  • Allihave2say

    Janet looks horrid. Her makeup is too light. Her cheeks look chipmunk and her head pointed. The hair really looks bad on her face. Large cheeks with a stunted chopped off nose with middle eastern makeup accents is all just a no for me.
