Posted on 1/28/2010 03:41:00 PM ET
A new teaser thumbnail from a photo shoot that Janet recently did for Wonderland Magazine was posted online today on the mag's official web site.

In December, Janet wrote on Twitter about the photo shoot that she had just completed for the magazine. "My recent cover shoot for @WonderlandMag was so much fun. Make sure u check it out n February," she posted.

Wonderland is an international, independently published magazine offering a unique perspective on the best new and established talent across all popular culture.

JD says he may write song for Janet for 'Married Too' soundtrack
Posted on 1/28/2010 08:10:00 AM ET
While working at a DJ gig last night at a nightclub in Brooklyn, Jermaine Dupri revealed to a reporter from New York's NBC 4 that he may write a song for Janet for the soundtrack of Why Did I Get Married Too?, which she stars in.

From the article:

Hip hop mogul Jermaine Dupri and pop diva Janet Jackson called it quits last year. But the Grammy-winning producer revealed Wednesday night they could be back together soon -- in the studio.

Spinning at Smirnoff's "Subsessions: A Journey Through Hip Hop" party at Brooklyn's New York Transit Museum, Dupri revealed to Niteside that he may pen a song for his ex-girlfriend as part of the soundtrack to her upcoming movie, "Why Did I Get Married Too."

"I guess people can take that however they want to take that," he said.

While the potential collaboration may or may not be a reflection of their current relationship, Dupri insists the pair was never together just for show.

"It's not like something we was doing for fake. 'Let me hold your hand right now because the camera's out.' It's a real situation," he said. "It's like regular same s--- that everybody else go through."

Details about the sequel's soundtrack, including its release date, have yet to be officially announced. The film itself is scheduled to be released to theaters in the U.S. on April 2.

Janet did not have any songs on the soundtrack to the original film, which was released in 2007.

Rodney Jerkins gets the 'OK' to release new Janet song
Posted on 1/22/2010 12:29:00 AM ET
Rodney Jerkins revealed tonight on his live Ustream internet web cam show that Janet recently told him that it was OK if he "leaked" onto the internet a new, previously unreleased song that he produced for her.

He did not reveal the date that he would be releasing the track, but only said that it would be sometime soon. No other information about the new song was given.

Jerkins has been working with Janet on her upcoming new studio album since late last year. The anticipated album does not currently have a release date, nor has it been announced what record label, if any, will be releasing it.

Prior to this, Jerkins produced the songs "Make Me," "Feedback," "Luv," "Rollercoaster" and "Curtains" for Janet.

Janet's new interview with Gotham Magazine
Posted on 1/18/2010 03:43:00 PM ET
The following is the text of Janet's new interview with Gotham Magazine, which she also appears on the cover of:

GOTHAM: What have you taken away from Michael's death?
JANET JACKSON: When you hear people say life goes on, it's really the truth. You can't stop living. It becomes a part of you. I feel a bit selfish because there are times I feel I shouldn't be doing this, but I enjoy my work and I have to keep doing it. I have to keep my life going. There are days that are harder than others.

G: You where filming Why Did I Get Married Too? during your brothers tragedy....
JJ: There was a lot of drama going into it on my end. I actually went from Michael's service - that first service we had - and left that night to go back to work. It was tough, but at the same time it was kind of therapeutic, too. It was a good way for me to move foreward and stay busy. And I love acting - it was my first love. I had my first job at seven. I got a recording contract when I was 14, so I thought I was going to be an actress. I'm really blessed.

G: What can we ecpect from your new album?
JJ: It's going to be a little different. The writing is about life experiences. There's a part of me that's craving escapism, which is a sense of wanting to keep on moving with my work but also of coming to terms with reality. So I think it will be upbeat and light.

G: What other songs move you at the moment?
JJ: You know what makes me feel good right now when I hear it on the radio? "Empire State Of Mind" [By Jay-Z]. When I hear the chorus... it makes me smile. And I love the way Alicia [Keys] sings it. I was crazy about "Native New Yorker" [by Odyssey] when I was a kid. I was visiting my brother when he was doing The Wiz and living here with my sister [LaToya]. I was on hiatus from the television show Good Times. My mother asked me what I wanted to do with my time off, and I said I wanted to go to New York and visit Mike because I missed him so much. We would go to Studio 54 when I was just this 10-year-old kid and I would hear "Native New Yorker" and it made me feel so good and it never leaves your mind - that energy, that excitement, those endorphins being released within you.

G: What do you love about New York City?
JJ: Everything. I love the energy-the creative energy. I've been here for 12 years and I will be here for the rest of my life.

G: Talk a bit about your new book.
JJ: I hope it's inspiring for all ages. I'm talking about weight loss, confidence, self-esteem-especially in your youth. It's not an autobiography, but there are little anecdotes that I give here and there from my childhood all the way to the present that I thought would be interesting and helpful to share.

G: Is there something you haven't done that you'd like to accomplish?
JJ: At some point I would like to do theater - it's something I've always wanted to do. I'll do more films. Produce. And I would like to have children.

G: How do you stay so grounded?
JJ: I think it was the way I was brought up. I was very fortunate to see all of this before it ever happened to me through my brother, so I knew what to expect. I watched the way my brother handled it. It's also important who you surround yourself with. True friends aren't afraid to put you in check.

G: What do you like to do in your spare time?
JJ: If I want to take a break from work, I love going to the islands. I love the ocean. I also love being with my family. I love going to the movies. I love reading - right now it's "The Help" [by Kathryn Stockett].

G: New Year's resolutions - do you have any?
JJ: I want to learn a language. I haven't decided which, but it's between French, Spanish and Italian. I also want to get closer to God.

G: How do you do that?
JJ: It's in your own way. We grew up Jehovah's Whitnesses. I do believe in God. I consider myself a Christian but I don't belong to a specific religion. If something really resonates with me then I will try to apply that to my life.
