A fan dug up Janet Jackson's 2nd grade yearbook photo, and social media can't get enough of her cuteness! Even Janet's ashy knees are adorable.

The 52-year-old superstar is currently on tour. She re-posted this image on her Instagram.com page after an account named @allthingsjanetbaby uncovered the photo in a yearbook.

At the time this photo was taken, Janet's brothers were big stars as The Jackson 5. Janet later went on to star as Penny Woods on TV sitcom Good Times.

  • Junkanoo

    She is a trend setter love her entire look for her tour age appropriate not boring no leotards or sequins great looks not tacky nonsense

    Too cute as a second graders. I just wish now, JJ would just back off the plastic surgery. Who is it that convinces people to mess up their mugs? I mean all they have to do is look at other people's effed up post-plastic surgery mugs and that should warn them against doing it but it doesn't. They do it anyway.

    Janet(whom I worked with in another show) has accomplished more than her brother MJ. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f3cafdf658c00853caecb5275c32d549fa6315265dff8c197fb78f1baee814c8.gif

    Why do people beat that dead horse she had plastic surgery.

  • Phillybruh

    And managed to not spend all her money, he was borrowing from her towards the end.

    Lol...mannnn,I remember those elementary school pix. On picture day you leave home with a one on two ponytails and a bang...when pic time comes the bang is all messed up and the hair is out the ponytail. You got the pony but no tail. Hair stickin str8 up. Janet hair is still intact. She was a cutie back then and she's gorgus.

  • WhoKnew

    Really? Wow. Okay, I'mma go fix my crab cakes for dinner.

  • tia

    Too cute. I love me some Janet. I would have to say the best acting Janet ever did was when she played Penny. Everything else was cool. In my opinion, that was a real great time.

  • Rayne

    Those lil rusty knees lol she’s so cute

  • hottlanta

    Ms. Jackson don't play. TMZ ran a story on her and old boy had to personally apologize the next day. She said don't let the quiet fool you.

  • MJ

    Career wise? Not even close. Michael has her beat by a country mile.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Sorry I can tell U are a big MJ(r.i.p.)fan. But MJ(r.i.p.)NEVER was in any sitcoms. Janet was part of THREE cast of sitcoms and another network show starring Debbie Allen. MJ(r.i.p.)was in only ONE major motion picture that FLOPPED.Janet was in FIVE that ALL debut at number ONE. That in addition to her still successful music and touring career.

    Mj(r.i.p.)in his short although successful career was unable to achieve that

  • Coy little wink

    Janet is the only woman I have ever had a serious crush on.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    The one where TMZ reported she slapped Paris? I'm thinking that one or the time TMZ printed a story saying MJ's estate was paying Janet's mortgage. Her lawyers got on Harvey's tail two seconds after that story was posted. They stated she's a "high net worth" individual. Yep, Harvey apologized for whichever story it was.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I cringed when it was reported she paid for his funeral. His estate paid her back, but still.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'm sure Hunnybunny had been playing on her knees before the picture was taken. *The teacher or photographer could have helped her out though*

  • hottlanta

    The one where they said they had her on video slapping Paris. They retracted that real quick and Harvey neve apologies. He did that day.

  • MRiGOThim

    Janet original face was too cute :P

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Too cute!
