hey kids! oh man i’m very tired – i could barely get back up out of bed but i’m managing to deal! so a few weeks ago i posted janet jackson on the cover of V magazine looking crazy with a big feathered head piece on – well below is a picture from the inside pages snapped by photographer jean-paul goude (he was once married to grace jones) where she tossed another thing on her head and went topless grabbing onto her boobs – she’s like beyonce with all her armpit poses! janet sure does love her friends left & right! even though her last album (20 Y.O.) was less than we expected from her – she’ll be touring this year and i would love to catch her on concert…where she’ll probably go topless & grab her boobs again! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
After setting a new standard for her own sexual self-confidence on an iconic Rolling Stone cover (Patrick Demarchelier’s September 1993 nude, with a strategically placed pair of hands), Janet seems determined to make no less of an impact in print. She marked the release of her 2006 album, 20 Y.O., with an eye-popping parade of skin-filled magazine covers. Now, gearing up for a 2007 world tour, the most famous woman in the world (or, at least according to this year’s Guinness Book of World Records, the most searched-for person on the Internet) meets one of the most talented image makers of our time, Jean-Paul Goude, the celebrated illustrator, art director, and photographer. We joined these two forces of (human) nature to discuss the making of Janet’s image, the expectations of celebrity, and the rules of physical attraction. Mitchell Healey
