Janet Jackson I was No ready to go at the beginning of the video she posted to TikTok on September 1. In the video, Ms. Jackson, 56, sits wearing a T-shirt, a pair of glasses and her hair wrapped up. She seems more ready for a night on the couch watching what’s left on HBO Max. However, thanks to a little magic and a transition from TikTok to the soundtrack of of latte “Great Energy” – Janet goes from Okay a wonderful! In a blink of an eye. Janet appears with a full face of makeup and an elegant white outfit.
Oh, Mrs. Jackson also has the same playful energy, as she makes a funny face at the end, proving that even when she looks beautiful, she still doesn’t take herself or life too seriously. She ends the video with a kiss that left fans reeling, even Mariah Carey! “Love you!” Mariah, 53, commented, along with three heart emojis (fun fact: both Mariah’s “Fantasy” and Latto’s “Big Energy” make use of the tom tom club’s “Genius of Love”, and Mariah jumped to a 2022 remix).
“So not taking yourself too seriously must be the secret to not aging, or you must have found the fountain of youth. Which one?” one fan asked. “The transformation is insane!” added another. J4L!!” wrote another. The rest of the comments were about how Janet “ATE” with the video. “JANET IN HER TIKTOK ERA.” “THE TRUTH.” “Janet, you can’t do anything wrong. Beautiful lady, always classic.”
Janet’s status as a fashion icon will be celebrated on September 6 as part of New York Fashion Week. Harlem Fashion Row (HFR) Announced that the 15th Anniversary Fashion Show and Style Awards would present the “That’s the Way Love Goes” singer with the ICON of the Year award.
