#SensualSaturdays “Escapade” By Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson Screen Cap LipstickAlley.com

#SensualSaturdays. Nice isn't it? Even nicer when you have "Escapade" by Janet Jackson playing in the background!

"Escapade" was released January 8th, 1990 and is from her Rhythm Nation 1814 album released in 1989.

If you want to know how Janet came up with the numbers 1814 for the Rhythm Nation, it is simple. It is NOT the year 1814.

R is the 18 letter of the alphabet and N is the 14th, so combine them and you have 1814 and then Rhythm Nation 1814.

The song hit number one and stayed there for 3 weeks in March of 1990. That is one street carnival we would LOVE to be a part of!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Nothing like singing "Minneapolis" for street cred, right? ;)

janet

Janet Jackson has just revealed that she is married to Wissam Al Mana and that the wedding took place last year!!!!

Janet just posted this to her official site in the past hour:

"The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet"

Wow. She got married. Again. In secret. Crazy and so hard to do as a celebrity.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Congrats W & J

Janet Jackson: Paris Should Enjoy Being Young & Not Act


Janet Jackson was on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and talked about her niece Paris Jackson and her acting career.

Janet feels she should enjoy her youth as she is only young once. Janet feels after she is 18, she can act and just enjoy being young.

Janet is obviously speaking from experience as her and her brother Michael Jackson and his brothers started in entertainment at a very young age.

We wonder if Michael were alive what he would want for Paris?

What do you think of Janet's advice for Paris?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Should she really have talked about it on TV? These Jacksons.

Old School Jam Of The Moment: “Rhythm Nation” Janet Jackson

 

Our Old School Jam Of The Moment is "Rhythm Nation" by Janet Jackson complete with finger countdown.

Ladies, be honest; how many of you were rocking the earring with the key on the hoop?  Oh wait, fellas, some of you were too weren't you?

Everyone thought the numbers in the title of Janet's album "Rhythm Nation 1814" were from a historical point in history.  Actually, R is the 18th letter of the alphabet and N is the 14th, so there is how you got 1814 in the title.

OK, enough music history!  Enjoy "Rhythm Nation" in all it's glory.  Don't hurt yourself trying to do those moves though....-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Classic Old School Minneapolis Sound

Exclusive: Michael Jackson’s Kids Leave Janet’s Show In Tears

Last Thursday night, Janet Jackson performed at the Gibson Ampithetre and Katherine Jackson, Janet's mom, took Michael Jackson's kids to see Aunt Janet's show.

We are told that Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket were having a good time...up until the middle of the show. 

In the middle of the show, Janet does "Scream" the duet she did in the 90's with her brother.  His vocals are played during the performance and on the screen behind her and the sides, was video of "Scream" which featured the kids father, Michael Jackson.

The kids were in tears and left during "Scream" and what we find interesting is that Jermaine Jackson just saw the show 4 days before as he was sitting behind us.  Seems that maybe Katherine and Jermaine would have talked or even Janet letting Katherine know about MJ being shown.

The last number "Together Again" features Janet and Michael through the years.  We wonder if the kids could have made it to the end of the show what would have happened.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Not For All Children

Britney Spears latest tour kicks off soon and when it does it will have Jamie King as the choreographer.  Brian Friedman has stepped down due to "scheduling conflicts" but as we hear it, after Britney's dance moves were criticized in recent TV appearances in videos, they are putting the blame on Brian.

Jamie was the music and tour director for Britney's last tour "Circus" in 1999.  Jamie King has been choregraphed tours for Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and special events for Prince and others. 

We think Britney's decision to bring back Jamie into the mix is a smart one and gives us hope for the tour.  With Nicki Minaj being your opening act, we know Britney wants to bring it!-Dr,FB

Diagnosis:  Jamie Is King

One of our friends was able to score FRONT ROW seats for Janet Jackson and was gracious enough to share her experience with us and a couple of photos.

I was shocked to see Janet in jeans and she said that Janet really did not change outfits through her 90 minute set and it was very cold.

These shots are awesome n we cannot wait to see Janet tonight at the Bowl.

For now, enjoy these photos as we try to bring you more great shots tomorrow,  Thank you JM for your generosity.-Dr.FB
