Janet Jackson in “WONDERLAND”: I Don’t Worry About Rihanna and Lady GaGa… I’m Janet Jackson Dammit!!!

- By Bossip Staff

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.

    She IS Janet, dammit! Doing it before the likes of Rih-Rih was ever born… is it even right to compare?

    Lady Gaga – IDK, her costumes might entice others, but that’s just another turn-off to me.. too gaudy, can’t even get to the music…

  • GAPEACH

    I LOVE MS JACKSON!!

  • LISA

    Janet, Whitney, Mariah, Madonna should NOT even be mentioned in the same sentence with these girls.

    Lady Gaga = Bites Madonna/Grace Jones/Cyindi Lauper
    Beyonce = BITES Tina Turner/Mariah/Janet
    Rihanna – Bites Grace Jones

    those girls will NOT have the careers of the older ladies.

    Janet = Perfection

    @LISA

    Even the best borrows something and makes it their own. Michael Jackson studied James Brown, but nobody called MJ a copy cat. Stop hating on the new generation of divas, and let them do them.

    The older chicks studied Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin, and we don’t knock em for that.

    Bey, Ga Ga, an all of them are doin their own thing. I mean, beyonce started a pop culture phenomenon with the “uh oh -uh oh ” dance.

    Mo’Nique did it, and nobody dogged her for “copy-catting”

    Lisa, please stop hating…What did those girls ever do to you?

    DARLING, NEWS FLASH. IF YOU HATE “CRACKERS” SO MUCH, LEAVE AMERICA AND STOP USING AMERICAN MONEY.

    IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED, WHITES, OR “CRACKERS” AS YOU SAY CONTRIBUTE LARGELY TO YOUR DAILY EXISTENCE.

    BUT THEN AGAIN, I’M SURE YOUR VERY YOUNG, SIMPLE IN MIND AND UNACCOMPLISHED IN LIFE, SO I DO BELIEVE THIS IS A WASTE OF MY TIME AND TYPING. DO YOUR PARENTS ALLOW YOU TO USE THE COMPUTER WITHOUT SUPERVISION? SHAME ON THEM.

    Riri and Gaga can’t even play in Janets leauge. They’ve both been on scene all about 10minutes. They got alot of lessons to go through before they could even contemplate approaching Janet’s field.

  • Jolie

    Firts: the photoshop awards goes to old fat Janet Jackson.
    Second: Janet need to stop and have some kids your a 45 years old woman and this goes out to Mariah Carey too. Janet and Mariah thinks they are still in their 20s.

  • LA'S FINEST

    Janet is aging gracefully she looks good.

  • KranMan

    Janet can just come out on the stage and say. Hi. I will be there.

  • lala

    Love her. Don’t care what people say, Janet still got it going on. If you’re a real fan of Janet’s you’ll love anything by her. I have every album by this woman and I continue to bump them everyday. Keep bringing out music Janet and I’ll continue to buy it. Your shine isn’t over. It’ll be over when you’re too old to perform.

    @Brandimus,
    Mike was a big fan of JB, fred astaire and others, everybody knew that because he ACKNOWLEDGED that that’s where he got his inspiration from. The women/men out today, they copy people and don’t acknowledge it or they deny it. That’s what made MJ, Janet Jackson different from everyone else. They gave the people before them their props but were also very different and did things no one else did, people out today don’t, that’s what make them copycats.

  • JANET JACKSON IS BETTER THAN THE THREE STOOGES AKA BEY, RHI AND GAGA

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY. THANK YOU FOR THE CLARIFICATION.

  • lanette

    I DON’T GET WHY PEOPLE WANT TO PIT WOMEN AGAINST EACH OTHER—THERE IS ROOM 4 EVERYONE. AND TO EACH HIS OWN AS FAR AS WHO YOU LIKE OR NOT..

  • Thatbitch

    Her comments were classy yet honest. She aknowledge that she is a fan of both woman, but she also detailed how they have been influenced by others. Janet came of age and lived in the 80s, so all this stuff that is so fresh and new to all these youngstas is just time repeating it self for her. Janet has nothing to prove, and her records will never be broken. These young chicks are being praised for going platinum, while Janet, Whitney, MC and Madonna went multi-platinum and DIAMOND! If you can remember the 80s then you know what a true Diva/superstar/icon is. These new girls are not there yet. Keep doing you Janet.

  • jgeorge

    Michael Jackson makes money everytime GAGA makes money.

  • Deirdre B Pride

    That’s right bishes.

  • MzPW

    I gotta say- I understand the comparison to Gaga’s work and seeing Gaga as a possible competitor. But Rihanna? Really? Ha! Rihanna SHOULD be happy that her name was even mentioned in the same breath as Ms. Jacksons…

  • Uhhh2

    All you JANET STANS need to sit down and stop hating on Lady GaGa now. Your master has spoken.

  • Google me

    Before beyonce n rhi rhi there was janet tha original.bow down rhianna and bey bow down

  • RP

    Janet has no need to worry about the newer artists, she’s been where they have been already and STILL has the talent and ability to show them why she is the sh*t.
