Janet, Mz. Jackson if you’re nasty, is on the cover of Wonderland magazine for their upcoming issue. Even though last year was probably one of the toughest years of her life, nothing is stopping her from doing what she does best…
Pop the Top for a Peek at Janet’s Photo Shoot and Video
Do you feel that with Lady gaga being so popular that your fashion now has to shock people?
JANET: I think a lot of [what Lady Gaga wears] is really cool. I’m not knocking Gaga in any way, because I’m actually a fan of hers. I don’t know because we’ve never spoken, but when I look at her, I get the vision of Leigh Bowery. I mean, everybody’s inspired by something. Do I think it’s over the top at all? I enjoy it because it’s something kind of different. It’s something new to look at. It’s going to be hard [for her] to keep up with that, but who knows?
How about Rihanna? does what she’s doing with bandages remind you of any of your previous incarnations?
JANET: Have I done that before? Yes. I’m not saying she’s copying me. Everything is cyclical. They come back around at some point.
Do you have any anxieties about keeping up with Rihanna and Lady Gaga?
JANET: To me, it’s just a matter of being you. And like I said, I don’t know what direction it’ll be, but I can tell there’s a change going on in me. Some•thing good. A lot has happened in my life this year, a lot of changes; I think I’m kind of headed in a different direction for sure, and it’ll show itself to me. As far as keeping up, I don’t look at it like that. It’s really about being who you are and doing what you want to do. I think when you try to keep up with something, it’s not a good thing. You have to express yourself and be the true you.
