Janet Jackson heaped praise on Ciara's "too cute" children for dressing as her and big brother Randy Jackson for Halloween.

Ciara shared a snap of 5-year-old son Future Zahir Wilburn and 2-year-old daughter Sienna Princess as they rocked out in matching pink costumes on her Instagram page.

Ciara, 34, captioned the shot "The Jacksons", and the picture quickly caught the attention of Janet, 53, who commented with a sweet and simple: "Too cute," WENN.com reports.

While many fans assumed Future was dressed as Janet's late brother Michael, others were quick to point out that he was actually dressed as Randy, now 57.

Janet and her brother Randy were the youngest members of the musical Jackson family from Gary, Indiana. The two siblings joined their famous brothers - Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie - when they performed on the road during summer breaks.

Janet and Randy were popular for their grown up skits during the Jacksons' dinner & show tours. Little Janet brought the house down when she delivered Mae West's famous line to Randy: "Why don't you come up and see me sometime?"

Randy became an official member of the Jacksons in 1976 when he replaced older brother Jermaine, who left the group to pursue a solo career with Motown after contract negotiations fell through. Motown kept the "Jackson 5" name.

 

Future and Sienna's costumes were created by designer Michael Costello, who told E! News that Ciara was "very hands on" during the process of designing the outfits. Future's tuxedo and Sienna's dress both took between three to four days to complete, and cost between $1,200 and $1,400 apiece.

"I think the costumes are just super special because they're fun, they're youthful, they're a timeless classic," he explained. "I like that Ciara wanted to do something vintage-inspired and super adorable. I love the thought and creative process behind it. It's just fun! And it's refreshing because I'm kind of sick and tired of seeing superheroes and zombies everywhere."

Michael Jackson's youngest brother, Randy took to his Twitter account to complain about his 15-year-old niece Paris Jackson's lengthy stay in an undisclosed psychiatric facility.

"I dont like that Paris is still in this facility. It's not right. She's been there much too long," Randy tweeted on Tuesday.

"She is not psychotic. There is no reason for her to be in a psychiatric hospital this long away from her family," Randy fumed in a series of tweets.

According to Fox Television, comedienne and TV talk show host Ellen Degeneres will replace Paula Abdul as the 4th judge on American Idol.

Abdul walked off the show last month following a dispute with AI producers over her demands for a bigger cut of the show's profits in her paycheck. The producers didn't call her bluff and Abdul found herself outside in the cold.

"DeGeneres will sit alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi and offer her own unique perspective to the contestants throughout the competition," Fox television said in a statement.

Degeneres will begin her stint as 4th judge after the audition rounds, which has been featuring temporary celebrity judges such as Mary J. Blige, Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers and Victoria "Posh" Beckham.

"I'm going to have a day job and a night job," DeGeneres said during a taping of her Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday when she made the surprise announcement.

I don't watch AI at all, but it seems to me that Ellen cracking jokes will be an odd fit for the show.

Oscar winning actress Halle Berry acted like she didn't want to be photographed with her sperm donor model Gabriel Aubrey over the weekend. Halle should be happy to cheese for the cameras whenever she's out with her man, which is on very rare occasions.
