JANET JACKSON’S BACK AND SHE’S STILL “NASTY!”
Janet Jackson, 44, hasn’t performed for awhile so she was determined to prove she’s still got IT with her show at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. She seemed REALLY happy to be back in the spotlight and it showed. Her sexy bondage themed production featured futuristic S&M costuming and Janet’s new short haircut. Mid-concert she pulled a guy from the audience and trussed him up in a straight jacket device in a steel frame. (Sounds like Gaga, who stole the idea from Joey Arias.) She pranced around him like a dominatrix and he ended up flat on his back with her writhing on top of him. Naughty Janet danced as energetically as ever – her only concession to maturity was a bit of knee padding in her high boots.
