Screen Shot 2021 10 12 at 3.28.23 PM

In an exclusive interview with famed battle rapper Math Hoffa, actor and A Tribe Called Quest front man Q-Tip talked about his romance with culture icon Janet Jackson. Tip spoke in depth about how he met the youngest Jackson sister and how the two eventually started dating in the late 90s.

The ATCQ founder says that the two met on the set of Poetic Justice and even reveals that we was originally set for the role of “Lucky” that was played by Tupac, but ended up locking in the role of Janet’s boyfriend. When the two later connected on the 1997 single “Got ’til It’s Gone”, they began dating shortly thereafter.

“We started dating after that,” Q-Tip said. “It be cool ‘n s***. She be making eggs ‘n s*** and I’ll be chilling like, ‘Yo, that’s Penny!’ to myself. I love her to death and it’s like she’s a Jackson. That’s Black royalty.”

[WATCH] Normani Tributes Janet Jackson During Sizzling ‘Wild Side’ VMAs Performance

Normani Tributes Janet Jackson During VMAs Performance

There was spice on the MTV VMA stage Sunday night. At the end of her “Wild Side” performance, Normani gave homage to Janet Jackson with an on-stage lap dance to Teyana Taylor, strapped into a metal stand.

The “Wild Side” performance was already sizzling, but the closing moment set Barclays Center on fire.

Fans were quick to point out the moment was a nod to Janet strapping a man to a chair for a lap dance during her 2002 tour. You can see both the inspiration and Normani’s performance below.

Janet Jackson’s Notorious Super Bowl Incident Is Reportedly Set To Be Turned Into a Documentary

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” at the 2004 Super Bowl will reportedly be turning into a documentary.

The rumored project comes from Left/Right TV, the same production company responsible for the unauthorized Framing Britney Spears documentary.

The production company stirred up quite a bit of controversy with their Britney Spears-centered project which highlighted her past relationship with Justin Timberlake, questionable conditions of her conservatorship, and how her relationship with the media shaped her image.

JT, who offered an apology after the documentary put in perspective how his words weaponized the young singer at the time, might be in the hot seat once again after this drops.

Costumer designer, Wayne Scot Lukas, who designed Janet Jackson’s outfit the night of the 2004 Super Bowl, alleged that the lead NSYNC singer planned the entire “wardrobe malfunction” to outshine Spears and Madonna kissing at the VMAs months before that.

Janet Jackson Biopic Was in Development Prior to Coronavirus Pandemic

With a Whitney Houston biopic currently in development, we will have another icon getting the big-screen treatment. TheJasmineBRAND details auditions for a Janet Jackson biopic were being held before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

A Janet Jackson film could incorporate many phases in her life ranging from her roles in sitcoms during the 1970s and 80s like Good Times and Diff’rent Strokes, her music dominance that led to numerous platinum certifications and more.

Jackson’s 2019 residency pulled in $13 million and she was set to release a new album in Black Diamond, which would be supported by a tour of the same name. Those plans appear to hit a snag due to the pandemic, with details of rescheduling or adjustment scarce. 

A month ago Jackson alluded to the launch of her tour stating: “Can y’all just stay inside? I got s-t to do in June. She was also supposed to headline the 2020 Essence Festival of Culture in New Orleans during the Fourth of July weekend. That festival is canceled for this year.

Jackson issued a message to essential workers earlier this week thanking them for their efforts.

Joe Biden & Bernie Sanders joins Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Ava Duvernay and Janet Jackson at D-Nice’s Homeschoolin’ Virtual Party

While the world is cocooned up in their homes, many of them on lockdown, DJ D-Nice has been working to bring people together through a free concert!

Some of the special guests on his Saturday offering were Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Ava Duvernary and Janet Jackson. Black politicians like Mayor Ras Baraka (NWK), Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (ATL), Public Advocate Juumane Williams (NYC) from Generation X jumped the “Homeschoolin’: Social Distancing Dance Party” and danced with their constituents. However, when former Vice President Joe Biden and then Senator Bernie Sanders popped in… the crowd went wild.

Perhaps, they were pandering to the over 100K people jamming in harmony to the BDP alum’s spinning of James Brown and Rihanna hottest tunes.

Whatever the reason, it proved once again the power that Hip-Hop yields.

Let’s make sure we take that power to the voting booths or the absentee ballots this November… regardless of who the candidate is.

A partial list of others in the party are as follows:

Michelle Obama, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Janet Jackson, Queen Latifah, Oprah Winfrey, DJ Khaled, Mark Zuckerberg, Mike Tyson, Stevie Wonder, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Ava Duvernay, Gayle King, Lenny Kravitz, Rihanna, A-Rod, J-Lo, Kevin Hart, Elizabeth Warren, Tiffany Haddish, Charlamagne tha God, Toni Braxton, Usher Raymond, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Quincy Jones, Nia Long, Snoop Dog, Janelle Monae, Maxwell, Dr. Jay, Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Lil Rel, Kamala Harris, Stacy Abrams, Michael Eric Dyson, Magic Johnson, Stephanie Mills, Sterling K. Brown, Erick Sermon, Don Lemon, Victor Cruz, Diddy, Angela Bassett, Tracee Ellis Ross, George Clinton, Black Thought, Quest Love, T- Pain, Tyrese Gibson, Donnie Walberg, Justin Timberland, Joe Fatone, Jason Binn, Kelly Rowland, Ashanti, Yvette Clarke, Corey Booker, Julian Castro, Ruth Carter, Lennox Lewis, Slick Rick, Jermaine Dupri, Da Brat, Jay Electronica, Kim Fields, Kym Whitley, Letoya Luckett, Omari Hardwick, June Ambrose, Sheri Riley, Treach, Vin Rock, Missy Elliot, Ellen Degeneres, Marsai Martin, Verdin White from Earth, Wind and Fire, Estelle, Angela Rye, Buju Banton, Lil Jon, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Michael Bivins, Ronnie Devoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Pebbles, L.A. Reid, Bethann Hardison, Kadeem Hardison, Clark Kent, Slick Rick, Naomi Campbell, Odell Beckham, Jr., Tarana Burke, Deborah Cox, Robi Reed, Rosario Dawson, Tamar Braxton, Rashaan Patterson, AJ Johnson, Jazmine Sullivan, Anthony Hamilton, Jamie Foxx, Chaka Khan, Lena Waithe, Keri Hilson, Lil’ Kim, PartyNexxtDoor, Patti Labelle, Sheila E, Dallas Austin, Valerie Jarrett, Tina Lawson, Eric Sermon, Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Roland Martin, Will Packard, Vanessa Williams, Tank, Timbaland, Hakim Greene, Debra Lee, Mary J. Blige, India Arie, E-40, Russell Simmons, and more…

The attendees show how diverse the crowd was, ranging from musicians, politicians, and influencers. Sororities, Fraternities, HBCUs and just all-around music lovers flooded the comment sections with stars to salute the health care workers still looking out for those affected by the COVID-19 disease that has afflicted the world.

He also did several tributes to Stevie, Janet, Patti, and Chaka. However, it was a double dose tribute to Kenny Rogers that touched many. Rogers transitioned earlier in the day.

There will also be another one that raises money for those hurting during this time. Rap music and those who love will heal the world… best believe it.
