It seems pop icon Janet Jackson reads our blog. Remember that post I wrote last week titled Janet Jackson Says No More Albums, in which she was quoted saying she was hanging up her headphones and calling it quits? Well, she denies ever saying such a thing.

In an interview with USA Today, Janet said:

"I read somewhere that I'm not planning to make more albums; that's not true. I love singing and performing too much to give them up. Right now I've got a couple more films I may do, and the festival. Then I'll figure out whether to go with a major or do something more independent."

Janet and director Tyler Perry will appear on Oprah's show tomorrow and she also signed up to star in another Tyler Perry flick with singer Mariah Carey. As you know, Mariah did a decent job in the critically acclaimed movie 'Precious'. Additionally, Miss Jackson will be the headline act at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana from July 2 to July 4 in New Orleans.

    She is not denying anything. I have been saying all along, I did not read where she said that she was done with recording albums. It clearly stated that at the time she was not working on an album.

  • Bird

    Well if she does read your blog, Hey Miss Janet! Luvs you girl.

  • Daisy

    @kimmy :cosign: I never got that either although I don't think its a bad idea :lolol:

    Will be tuning into Lady O tomorrow :popcorn:

  • DivaPT

    so let me guess this was the only blog that posted that information doubt it because how did u hear about it then

  • Karamelkisses76

    Shoot! We almost had her retired.

  • Kimmy

    @Daisy..yeah I will be tuning into Oprah too. I don't want her to retire. I think she still has some hits left in her.

    I :heart: Janet!

  • Daisy

    @karmel *hey girl* I wld tell u I'm going to playdate Sat but I know u aint coming out :lol:

    @bird I asked n another post how your prg was coming along? Hope n pray all is well.

  • iscream

    When you are an Icon don't you usually have people to keep up with what the people are saying about you :shugs:

    I will DVR Oprah.

  • Daisy

    @kimmy well if she has any hits left she needs to pull them joints out sooner than later! I grew up on Janet but she fell off musically yrs ago 2 me and I don't think she can act either

    *ducks at anything being thrown my way* :lol:

  • Lizzyb

    I never got from that article that she was retiring and went looking for it elsewhere and just saw the same you said on some of the blogs, you know how folks lift and stuff. So I am glad its not true. Just hope Janet is over experimentin' sexually on her songs...enough, give us something we can vibe to.

  • qtipthecat

    I am a fan of hers as an entertainer, but I never really thought she could sing that great. She made a couple of songs I liked but I just did not think she was a great singer. She is no Mary.

  • Ebony

    Mariah acts better than Janet :coffee:

  • Kimmy

    @Daisy..I agree she definitely needs to pull the hits out. Personally, I think she fell off when she started letting JD produce her songs/albums. She should have stuck with jimmy and Terry in my opinion.

  • nyvixen

    I love Janet Jackson! I will continue to support her music and acting ventures! MUAH

  • tampa813

    Mariah and Janet in a film together? That could be a good thing but this is Tyler Perry so it probably won't be bout much.

  • pointhimout

    TEAM JANET. i know she reads it. I realized that when Sandra made a sideway comment at me for saying I believe rocky and bullwinkle are Janet's dogs and not jimmy and terry.

    Being Sandra, she made some sideway remark saying how could janet be writing songs with her dogs. Sure enough, in Harpers Bazaar, Janet confirmed they ARE HER DOGS. On her twitter I blieve she has a pic of the pups saying jimmy and terry aren't as cute as rocky and bullwinkle...

    yeah, it was a mouth full. but i figured long ago she reads it. Just continue reading it and take my advice. Stay away from JD. His production style does nothing for you. I stand by that. That and the belief he needs to visit Kandi's dentist.
