Janet Jackson's diet: Eat sensibly; dish other divas

93737__janet_lNewly slim Janet Jackson, talking to Us Weekly, attributes her recent weight gain and loss of 60 pounds to having super-sized herself to 180 pounds for a movie role that she ultimately passed up in order to finish her forthcoming album, 20 Years Old (as in, Even Though I’m 40, My Body Looks Only…). Instead, she says, the role in the film Tennessee went to Mariah Carey. Wait a minute, is she calling Mariah a fatty?

    Nah, she’s not. DYING for Janet’s new album, and glad to see she’s back to her hot self.

  • Lynny

    Not sure I am buying the “gained the weight for a part”, because she always gains weight in between tours, but good for her if she wants to actually eat.

  • Sally

    Does anybody believe ANY Jackson?

  • Paulie

    Well she clearly didn’t “pass up on” a few trips to the plastic surgeon. Miss Jackson, you’re nasty.

  • Trish

    How the hell do her breasts hold up under the constant back & forth? I don’t get it.

  • Geno

    She’s damn creepy. Really. She’s done.


  • Ed

    I don’t believe the wieght story for the movie part either. Either way, hey she’s aloud to get fat between albums if she wants. Remember how big she was in her video, “when it think of you”?!
    I can’t wait for this album too, it’s going to be a diva summer: Paris, Janet, Christina and the Madge tour, my gay sensiblities are going CRAZY!

    doubt it, her and mariah were super chummy at oprah’s big bash. It surprised me to see, and then I realized that I had never heard of a janet/mariah beef before.

  • Jay Ross

    I just love Janet. Fat or skinny–does it really matter.

    I love it when celebrities GET MORE ATTENTION than Oprah AT OPRAH’S OWN PARTY! Damn skippy!!! Miss Jackson unveiled off her newly slim bod at the “Legends Ball” release party! I bet Miss O was salivating at what could have been. Too much carbs makes far too much Oprah! Listen here Miss Janet: Don’t lose too much weight; me likes me something to grab hold of! Good luck on the new “20 Years Old” LP. Control made me fall in love with music back in the day. I wore that CD out, from “Control” to “Funny How Times Flies…” Loved it then….still love it now!

    You people are crazy. The legends ball took place an entire year ago, so the reports of her excessive weight gain are obviously false! Good grief!

  • jo

    they aren’t false unless all those pix have been doctored but who cares? i dont buy the movie weight gain excuse though. you dont put on 60 lbs to audition. she always puts on weight it seems in b/w her albums. i think her fans would appreciate it if she just fessed up to yo yo-ing like many other non celebs do. i doubt she meant to come off as if she were calling mariah fat. besides mariah isnt fat. she looks healthy.

  • Reggie

    Everyone must realize that if they would stop hating their lives would be so much better.

  • Annie

    All of the Jacksons look like creatures from the black lagoon. I’m sorry Ms. Jackson …those breast are not real.

  • chris

    what a great exuse for gaining weight, I think I am going to use that line too…this isnt the first time she has fluctuated with her weight, it has been going on for 10 yrs, her music is great but she definitely has weight issues…..after the i gained wait for a movie i wonder what shell come up with next yr
