Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson was honored with the Music Icon Award at Out magazine's 22nd Annual Out 100 Gala held at the Altman Building in NYC on Thursday night. The 51-year-old pop icon turned heads in her eye catching head-to-toe black outfit.

Janet's daring outfit included leather, fur, lace, lycra and a black paddle perched atop her long red extensions.

During her acceptance speech, Janet quoted the lyrics to her 1997 hit "Together Again," saying: "Everywhere I go, Every smile I see, I know you are there, Smilin' back at me."

She continues her State of the World Tour in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Friday, Nov. 10. Her final stop is at the Philips Arena in Atlanta on Sunday, Dec. 17. Afterwards, Janet plans to spend the holidays co-parenting her infant son, Eissa, with her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana.

    How does she do it? She always manages to lose the weight so quickly. Well done to her.

  • Mel

    Janet looks a mess. She could have left off the sleeves, long braid, and the train. She could have just been sexy in the pants and fur top. Her stylist should be fired

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Slay Janet... Congratulations we love you bew ....???

  • Armymom20

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I do NOT like the look BUT I love me some JJ!

  • Luv Pitties

    Did Janet get a new nose?

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Janet's body is looking goot. That funeral home makeup is not.

  • Jen_no_juice

    She looks great for 51 and just having a baby *whispers I thought this was LaToya at 1st*

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Janet up there looking like a fine ass hood dominatrix.

    I think I've been a bad boy......

  • Pebbles

    Bless her heart!

  • shun king

    look like she been bleaching

  • whodatthere

    Her age is showing now..

  • Toni ToniToni


  • LisaNovaè

    Yea!??? If that’s how 51 looks I can’t wait to get her age because she looks absolutely stunning!!!!! I see some 30yr olds that look older then her!

  • Misslaydj

    I'll be at that Atlantic City show tonight

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    She looks like an extraterrestrial in those pics, especially in her face. She's not looking good for 51 years.That outfit is horrid.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    She's looking more and more like Michael every day.

  • Tammie Reed


  • Victorious82

    She’s serving EJ Johnson real ness.

  • Kanyade

    LOVE HER. She is definitely looking snatched. I kinda hate the evil-eyebrows. On her look, meh, I'm no style critic, but if I were she would get a pass, being a performer of the theatrical arts and all.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Janet looks great. Wish she hadn’t messed with her nose.

  • BishesDntGtIt

    Joe Jackson must have really mess up all his kids self esteem. Janet that nose is a NO. Can you even breathe through it ?

  • Junkanoo

    I like me some Janet but not that outfit. A Mad Max ,King of Throne hybrid it looks like a coustume ,halloween was over a week ago.

  • stav

    Janet, Janet, Janet.....that outfit is a travesty!

  • SDot

    I Love her...but no and her face wtf... JANET!

  • hottlanta

    Long purse for the long money. Love it.

  • JennyJazzhands

    She's officially in cat lady territory.

  • Sarah7

    Janet looks a mess. In that top pic her neck is just gone. She looks like a wax figure. She needs to stop studying the Lil Kim handbook on how to destroy your looks.. And that outfit looks like it belongs on the set of Star Wars.

  • freelancepimp .

    Surgery on that nose is starting to breakdown.

  • Renee26

    She should stay away from the turtle necks otherwise I like it...she's all that!

  • Ni Ni

    I know it's good to lose weight but your head and your body is suppose to match. Janet looks aged to me at this size. She looks better with a little more weight.

  • Renee26

    Have you seen her dom routine she does in concert?? Had me wanting to be on stage tied up my damn self!!

  • Indies beauty

    I'm a huge M.J fan, so naturally I'm inclined to like his sister but I'm only familiar with a few of her songs. I wish I was a bigger fan, so my love for him can be expressed vicariously through her.

  • MistaO

    Crazy is real, aint it?

  • millz
  • Antonia Simms

    How sad. MJ redux.

  • Lindac

    She looks like she has no neck. Why is she "Scooched up" like that I wonder?

  • shay2shaymd

    Who does her foundation? Damn, match that shit up.

  • shay2shaymd


  • shay2shaymd

    I was thinking the same thing

  • SaltineCrackers

    Is Janet bleaching her skin to make us believe that white baby is hers?

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon
  • Shani

    I just bust out laughing and the office is dead quiet...

  • SaltineCrackers

    Nope it's just they way its contoured; more dramatic than usual.





  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Janet please stop with the costumes. You're stepping into MJ's territory with the weirdness. And that top pic of looks like it was photoshopped by me.

  • Birdman24

    Damn Janet inherited Michael's cash and his damn nose. Give that man his NOSE back......

  • Wreckognize Game

    Her head looks like it was added to somebody else's body. No neck. I agree

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Ok Janet giving me Space Age Black Window in the top pic. I wanna go to her concert so bad its this Monday but I just got a new gig, going on vacay, xmas and bday all in less than six weeks smh...

  • bemetoo

    So Janet back to bleaching ????

  • Tay Gee

    Janet slaying as usual. :)

  • Noirluv45

    I don't think Janet needs all that harsh make up. She's gorgeous and looks wonderful as is.

  • hottlanta

    so wrong but sooo funny.

  • hottlanta

    YASSSSSS Ms. Jackson.

  • Wayup!

    Uhmmm.. Naw Tootie.. Try again.. Still in luv wit you boo boo..?

  • Karen Brady

    Looks like it

  • Guest©

    Unfortunately, I agree. Facelifts makes one look Asian in the eyes and overall weird.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Ms. Jackson is one bad bish. I love the black gothic look on her It was done right. All I want to know ....is how can I be down with her weight loss plan. I know damn well she didn't get that small from working out. She said she already had the secret skin stuff, now I need her to come through with the weight loss.....LOVE HER

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Don't do that....lol

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    PuHLEASE, she lost that weight before she starting touring and dancing.... Ms. Jackson is using some type of super weight loss pills, I just need her to share it...damn....

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think so too. She was wearing layered clothing for a while.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™


  • Guest©

    I'm here now. Hopefully it's a good show.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    She used to be so beautiful. Wow. She just looks....umm..... well, I hope she is happy now that she is single.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    That's a bad female right there. The pics don't do it justice. You had to see video clips of her sexy walk, pulling this look off. She looks great.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    That's funny. I'm a fan of both also. If they were on at the same time, I'd watch Janet hands down. I'd catch MJ later, IJS for the sake of this convo.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Ms. Jackson’s face is snatched! (Literally) ?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Too bad Mariah had to have surgery to lose weight. Janet seems to do it so easily. ?

  • ?E?E?M?A

    The Jacksons always go overboard with the plastic surgery. She's crossed the border into non-human looking features. If I saw her on the street at night I'd run for my life. She looks as bad as Michael now.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    What nose? Lol

  • ?E?E?M?A

    She really needs to stop. They all cut their noses to the bone.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Yesss..fresh out the casket ready! ?

  • Indies beauty

    Lol I don't know if I should be offended by this revelation or give Ms.jackson a chance.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Yes! Her stylist was just throwing anything on her and told her she looks great

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Yes she did. She got it last year but that makeup accentuates it in the worst way. It's probably her 3rd or 4th one.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Bad looking

  • cheechee1x1

    It's about time someone spoke the truth. Janet started in life as a natural beauty. Umphteen surgeries later it's a wrap.

  • cheechee1x1

    Remember when Janet was caught with diet pills in her maids name back in the day. The maid discovered the pills. Google.

  • cheechee1x1


  • cheechee1x1

    Janet has been bleaching for years. Janet, Latoya, and Micheal are the most bleached member of that family. See their pics from the 70's.

  • n1kk1a

    Why is there a spatula sticking out of her head, and where is her neck? She giving me a Star Jones vibe.

  • ZZZ
  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Aint that much dancing in the world! She had to be pushing 250+..naturally that would take months to lose, medically enhanced and Voila!

  • The Chosen One

    She looks horrid.

  • Bashi22

    That nose ?????

  • Dahl

    Personally, I just don't care for this look...

  • imright

    Janets face looks tight af ? and kinda ashy

  • imright

    Janet is the Queen of losing alot of weight really quick ???

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I'm glad yall not in here faking.... Janet looks crazy!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Like she is trying to suck her gut and hold a fart at the same time.

  • BigSue

    That head gave me caution!

  • pure_rachet

    I like the look but her eyebrows are throwing it off for me

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Janet always slaying.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Her right eye is looking crazy AF. She overdid it with the plastic surgery this time, no turning back now. That's permanent.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yeah, I was just saying that, too. Her right eye is permanently f'ed up now. So is her nose.

  • Mister Fantastic

    Is her right eye sliding DOWN?

    Looking ready for Mad Max casting call.

  • Phillybruh

    Wrong child star..lol

  • Wayup!

    Sarcasm... Everybody know she look like Tootie...

  • Dane

    She needs to stop w/ the surgeries.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Janet's past her prime now, but she still has stage presence and gives a good performance. Back in her day though, nah, I'd watch MJ only if Janet was not in the building.

  • SweetTEE

    I surely asked myself why a professional makeup artist who knows the world will see their work-would not erase them shits and start again. My lordt.

  • SweetTEE

    She know she could have got some of the RihRih ish. THEY MAKE YOUR COLOR JANET. Sick of this ish lol

  • SweetTEE

    Janet is the BUSINESS. Girl you have to youtube her old stuff.

  • SweetTEE

    Like when Monique lost all that weight....

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    That nose isn't working for her.


    Janet got like 5 classic albums..

  • dontgetblocked

    She looks scary and sick.

  • Quagsire!

    Janet’s face though... EEEK!

  • Quagsire!

    Didn’t work gir MJ either...

  • SaltineCrackers

    Jenny Jones, please...Jackson black plus Arab does not equal white.

  • pure_rachet

    lol even I would do them over and I'm lazy. She might have been going for the star trek look though.

  • Li

    Well she is keeping her figure, and also keeping her Muslim fashion sense....watch out -- Janet is going to come out with a Muslim inspired line of clothing...betcha.

  • Li

    She's def had more work done on the face.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Janet(whom I worked with when she was a teen idol then in passing as an adult) I'm so proud of her. She has come full circle now as a new Mum.Then has shut her fans up with a tour(that was postponed abruptly to have a baby) resurgence. Her fans were VICIOUS to her for canceling the 2015 leg of it.

    She has now proven herself to be an icon, a trendsetter, a businessperson, a multi-gifted artist:songwriter/producer/singer/actor/dancer.

    Btw It's NO FEMALE in the industry that hasn't had some kind of work done to their body,face etc. She still looks good and nowhere near her 50's

  • Dora LaBelle

    I think when these ladies start having plastic surgery they seem to wear heavy makeup...Lil Kim, Tamar, Nene. I wonder if it covers scarring or what? Janet you have done something for sure.

  • Oya Shango

    Good to see her back. BUT, a little overboard in all categories.

  • SaltineCrackers

    It seems odd, but some women like that kind of dramatic makeup look. Kind of like the people who use too much sugar or salt when they cook.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    She looks uncomfortable in that outfit.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    I feel sorry for that little baby growing up in that crazy ass family.

  • Ni Ni

    Yep, Jennifer Hudson and Rev Al sharpton too.

  • Anonymouse


  • Anonymouse

    How does she lose weight so quickly?

    And her face is starting to look like her sister, La Toya.

  • mystery

    where is her neck

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Nope. Never heard that story. Will Google.

  • Misslaydj

    how did you like it??? it was GREAT to me. You know how som artists do too many new songs and opening acts are corny. i was really impressed that she came out and killed it.
