Janet Jackson’s mother has to leave her daughter’s concerts half way through – because the singer’s performances are too racy for her. 71-year-old Katherine Jackson is escorted out of Jackson’s shows every time she sings ‘Would You Mind’. A source says, “The song is always accompanied by Jackson gyrating her groin in the face of a male audience member strapped to a gurney. “Once the song is over, Janet’s mother is brought back to her seat so she can watch the rest of the concert.”
O-Town, Concert, South Bend, IN 8/4/01
I’ve read so many bad reviews and criticisms about OTOWN, their album, their television show, and their live show… and I’ve yet to understand why. At least the live show part. In my opinion, no one can TOUCH their live show. They pull off the singing and dancing without lipsynching great, and the show’s nonstop, full of energy. There aren’t many special effects such as the ones you find at an *NSYNC or Backstreet show, but their actual raw talent makes up for that. They strum the guitar a few times, Ashley Angel (“the cute one”) accompanies their hit single, “All or Nothing”, with playing the piano, and their harmonies are incredible. I took my 21 year old cousin with me.. a hard core rock fan, and even she was impressed. Mostly by Jacob Underwood (“the rebel”), who is definitely a true rocker at heart.. and that most definitely shines through on stage. However, unlike my cousin, not everyone not impressed with boybands will enjoy the show.. but I do think a great majority will. If you go with an open mind, and open eyes.. there’s no doubt you’ll see where I’m coming from. Even if not your “type”, they get the crowd hyped, and they’re enjoying themselves.. something you don’t always see in artists’ eyes today. Unfortunately, due to certain circumstances I missed some of the show, though there the whole time, but what I saw was definitely great, and my two best friends who joined me and didn’t miss a moment thought it was even better. And though it still may not be convincing, this being written from a teen girl’s point of view, it more and likely will automatically be considered bias and lack of taste due to the “teenybopper” stereotype, but .. one of my two friends went to the concert rather skeptical, and came home .. though not the biggest, definitely, a fan. :)
The Enquirer is reporting this week that a pair of freak accidents awhile back while she was still married to Rene Elizondo left her with both eyelids swelled up to the size of golf balls leaving her almost completely blind for a month.
The incident left Janet to become aware of the problems in her and Rene’s marriage as a friend revealed, “Janet was literally BLIND and Rene basically ignored her.”
“He was worried about other things while Janet was lying in bed in agonizing pain. That was devastating for Janet. How could he not care about her at all?!”
Well again a British tabloid (and The Star as well) is reporting that Britney Spears and longtime boyfriend Justin Timberlake are engaged. The Sun’s Clodagh Hartley reports Justin proposed while the two were recording the track where Justin provides backing vocals on Britney’s new album.
An insider revealed details of the proposal saying, “At first Britney played it up. Justin’s heart must have been in his mouth. She acted like she was going to say no.
“Then she started to cry and said: “Yes! Yes! Yes! I’ll marry you’. It was so sweet.
“When she accepted Justin cried as well. He pulled the earphone off and gave her a big soppy kiss. It was all very mushy.”
An insider also says Justin borrowed one of his mother’s rings to make the proposal and because it was too tight, Britney’s been wearing it around her neck.
