It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Janet Jackson. She has been my girl crush ever since I first heard Control when I was 11 years old, and it has been one big ole lovefest from then to now. Janet may not have the hitmaking power she once had, but she can still dominate a stage and keep a crowd on their toes.
Janet showed that she still has the goods during a stop in Los Angeles for her Number Ones: Up Close and Personal Tour yesterday. There are entertainers half Janet’s age that can’t move a crowd like she can. Go Jan!
Mary J. Blige has overcome so many obstacles, and now she is the reigning Queen of Hip Hop Soul, with no signs of being dethroned. During today’s Good Morning America Summer Concert Series, Mary sang her heart out for the audience in Central Park. She truly has come into her own.
