Justin Timberlake apologizes to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson
February 12th, 2021 under Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, The Jacksons. [ Comments: none ]


Justin Timberlake took to social media today to apologized to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson.

I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.

I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because
I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.

I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from…

The industry is flawed. It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It’s designed this way. As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn’t recognize it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again.

I have not been perfect in navigating all of this throughout my career. I know this apology is a first step and doesn’t absolve the past. I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports.

I care deeply about the wellbeing of the people I love and have loved. I can do better and I will do better.

We don’t know why he did this out of the blue. He could’ve watched the doc on Britney and realized his mistakes. He could just have an epiphany. We don’t know.

Let’s see if actions match his words. That will be what is really telling.

What is, all singers with a ponytail look alike?
April 29th, 2020 under Ariana Grande, Jeopardy, The Jacksons. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight on Jeopardy, Alex Trebek answered an easy question, or so he thought. The host wanted to know, “As the recipient of the 2018 Icon Award, she took ‘Control’ & took the stage in her first live TV performance in nearly a decade.” If you still don’t know who that is, then the game show made it even easier by showing some video of the female singer at that awards show.

At this point, everyone is like Janet Jackson. Well, everyone but Alwin. He thought it was Ariana Grande. The contestant is a nasty ponytailist. He thinks everyone with long ponytails look alike, and we don’t.

Janet Jackson talks about her son and his baby daddy
May 2nd, 2017 under The Jacksons. [ Comments: 1 ]


After weeks of speculation, Janet Jackson confirmed that she is separated from her husband Wissam Al Mana. She spoke out on Social Media for the first time in almost a year to talk about him, her son and going back on tour in the fall.

She starts out talking about having bags under her eyes and putting on some extra pounds since getting pregnant and having a baby. Something her brother Randy, who was recording her message, jokingly confirmed. Confirming brothers and sisters never grow up.

Then she talked about Eissa. She said, “He is so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, such a happy baby.”

While things are happy with her son, they are not with her marriage. On that front she had this to say, “I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second. Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in Gd’s hands.”

Then she announced that she is changing the name of tour to State of the World. It is not about politics but “people, the World, relationships and just love.” Something the Jacksons have always been big believers in.

No word if she has any new music in the works, but I am sure it will be one of her best albums because so much has happened to her since the last one came out. When it comes to her tour, she always knows how to put on a show! She always has that rhythm nation going on!

Janet Jackson and the love of her life!
April 15th, 2017 under The Jacksons. [ Comments: none ]


It has been an awful week for Janet Jackson. Last Saturday, it was rumored that she split from Wissam Al Mana, her husband of around three years, and shortly afterwards it was confirmed. Because of the confirmation, it made the new mom a gossip target. Every detail of her life being exposed.

Instead of letting that get her down, she ended the week by sharing the first photo her son Eissa. Even though they have so much going on in their lives right not, the 3-month-old and her not letting it show. Which is a good thing because this should be a sweet time for them and they look like they have a sweet relationship!

Will Janet Jackson’s split get nasty?
April 9th, 2017 under The Jacksons. [ Comments: none ]


Janet Jackson should be experiencing the happiest time of her life as a first time mom to a 3 month old son, but Daily Mail is reporting she split from her husband Wissam Al Mana. No reason was given as why they decided to end their roughly 5 year marriage, but I am sure it will not end peacefully.

Al Mana is Qatari businessman worth around $1 billion and she is worth substantially less. The youngest Jackson also converted to Islam for her husband, so it will be interesting to see if she will remain with the religion. Plus, we don’t know who will get custody of Eissa. Since it is her first child and she had him 50, I am sure she will fight for full custody of him. But you never know.

Just think a year ago, she announced that she was her postponing her Unbreakable tour to focus on having a baby. A year later, we are waiting for her to announce that she split from her baby daddy. Proving a lot can happen in 365 days and that Unbreakable was just a name for her tour not referring to her marriage.

This was her third marriage and his first.
