This FHM October layout of Janet Jackson is noteworthy because for decades she has refused to show her legs. Especially in person. She always covered her gams with pants, long skirts, or boots. Check her photographs. Plenty of sexy pictures featuring her cleavage and abs, but no legs. Early in her career she wore nothing but baggy pants and jeans. Nobody knows WHY she couldn’t stand to show her legs. Apparently someone finally talked some sense into her and this picture is the result. Personally, we think her legs look fine, but the awkward pose doesn’t do her justice.

    I think she looks airbrushed to the point of no return, and that she’s channeling Star Jones

    Why do women think that they only look good if they look like a whore?

    Jackson has weight and body image issues like alot of women.
    And Janet is a black chick who grew up around white chicks in California.
    What this means is different type of people have different “values”- for lack of a better word.
    Black people think low slung flat asses and stick thin legs are a grotesque deformity.
    Whites think bulbous booties shaped like an onion or an apple and thick thighs are a grotesque deformity.
    What can I say? Different strokes?
    Jckson’s probably compared herself to all the white girls around her growing up but now, she’s around black folks in Atlanta who have a different outlook than the folks she grew up with in California and she’s an adult who feels more confident about her physical appearence.
    Her legs look fine but she should really consider wearing more age appropriate clothing.
    Actually, I don’t think a woman of any age should wear the things Jackson wears in public. She looks best COVERED UP as she did years ago in the white Richard Tyler pantsuit.

    The reason Janet has never showed her legs is that back in the late 80s, she had her hip bones shaved to reduce the size of her hips. This is an incredibly painful surgery (Paula Abdul had it too — I know because I was her assistant at the time) and it leaves a long scar on both legs. Since Janet is darker skinned, the scarring left some very noticable brownish/black scarring.

    Whether she had her hip bones shaved or not, her legs are not very attractive…kind of short and squatty looking. And I agree with the poster who said Janet should be in age-appropriate clothes. What’s so bad about acting your age, anyway? Celebrate the age you’re at!

    Puhleese, Janet has had extensive lipo work of late and she’s proud of the way she looks. That’s no crime–everyone in Hollywood (and 1 or 2 of us in Northern CA) have had it done.

    Sorry, but a tarted-up middle-aged woman requires so much artifice, one might as well be looking at a drag queen. And, the last thing anyone need from a woman knocking on menopause’s door is an ‘intimate glimpse’ into her boudoir in the form of lingerie photos and/or descriptions of the vulgar details of her sex life. Sorry, Janet, Madonna, etc. — I am as interested in all that from you as I would be in hearing about it from my mum. You are no longer a budding, fetile woman: 1) you have no hormonal excuse for being so vapid and shallow, and 2) you don’t have the looks to make vapid and shallow seem alluring. Take a clue from a 40-something Brad Pitt who now has the decency and self-respect to discuss in interviews more mature topics such as charity work and the joys of fatherhood.

    Agree, she need to grow up and start putting on clothes. This looks like a Playboy spread. Underneath it all, she probably has a bad self image. And I’ve never heard of that “hip shaving” procedure, it sounds dangerous, if it exists.

    I read all the posts here and I can agree. I LOVE Janet very much and have since the beginning. It does seem like she’s in an impossible situation since she’s a pop star. I am getting a little tired of seeing every celebrity on the covers of these magazines almost naked (EVA LONGORIA!) It’s damaging to all women to continut down this path. And frankly I don’t want to see Janet played in this way any more. Hopefully she’ll take the high riad, reunite with Jam and lewis and make hits again.

    For all of the people posting rude comments……Stop & think about yourself when you start aging( nearing 40 etc)you all talk shit now cuz you’re young!
    We all GET OLDER ! Nobody escapes it! And I would bet if you had all the $$$ Janet or any other successful celeb had you would get a lil lift here tuck there just to keep up! Thats part of the game in Hollywood!
    So unless you look 100 times better then Janet which I’m sure 90% of everyone posting here is not w/out flaws. STOP HATIN!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
