Janet Jackson Is Engaged

Normally I would probably not bother to write about an engagement announcement, but since Janet Jackson is usually married for years before we know anything about her love life I thought I would write about her recent engagement. I don't think Janet is going to have any money problems anymore. Presumably the rumor of money problems are one of the reasons that Janet made the grab for Katherine Jackson and the chance to get control of the millions of dollars sloshing around his kids. Janet's husband to be is Wissam Al Mana. No, not Wiz Khalifa. This guy owns retail. Lots of it. The ring he gave Janet is so big and expensive she does not wear it for fear it will get lost or stolen. I think it is also because she likes to keep everything secret. Do you think he likes it when she uses her velvet rope?

Jeez - so much true love today (not!). Even though Ned has the stupidest last name evah, I hope he and Kate are at least really in love. I don't hold out too much hope for Miss Jackson or Mr. Cruise.

Amber said...

Good for her - he's a babe! Hopefully he is good to her and she is happy. I think all the Jackson kids could use a little peace in their lives. They've created plenty of their own drama, but growing up the way they did didn't really give any of them a good starting point.

Amber said...

Okay, nevermind. I almost made myself throw up. So here's hoping to a big payout!

ReesesPeace said...

Hmmmm...is the velvet rope a reveal? Nothing wrong with a little kink as long as consenting adults are involved. Ahem. Strolls off whistling...

The whole grab the Mom thing made me sad and pissed. Way to treat your Mom and your dead brother's underage kids.

Amber, you had me REALLY worried there for a minute:)

Henriette said...

I want to know if she converted to Islam and about her alleged son by DeBarge.

Reeses, wasn't one of her albums the velvet rope?

Rins said...

I was under the impression Janet liked to be the receiver of the velvet rope, at least with Jermaine Dupri.

ReesesPeace said...

I forgot that was the name of an album, thanks @plrtz. When kink is mentioned I'm usually willing to go there. ;)

discoflux said...

@ jennifer- That is the first thing I thought of as well!

dia papaya said...

Amber, I am very torn bc you are so damn funny today. Your health vs laughter for all?

Well girl, hopefully you get your sleep! I have been wicked sick for weeks. I think last night was the first night of solid sleep in over a month! I feel your pain.

We should all try to serenade you tonight! That might work?

Unknown 1 said...

Good for her, I hope it's true love. Love, twu love.

discoflux said...

You kidding me, dia? Everyone would start fighting over which song to sing! lol

dia papaya said...

I just had a vision of a gaggle of CDaNers huddled outside Amber's place singing ridiculous songs at the top of our lungs.

Then we'd all go to the bar next door. Does Amber still live next to the bar?

It's a sing-a-long ambush!

Renoblondee said...

I always get a weird vibe about her and her shady love life.

Amber said...

LOL a serenade would be wonderful! The bar in my bldg closed, but there are 5 w/in a block. So I think you're all covered ;)

discoflux said...

Bar, serenade, bar. I can't sing in key when I'm sober. Yeah...

Diana G said...

Y'all are cracking me up!! ;-)

MISCH said...

He must be out of his mind

JenX said...

No one is happier about her marrying a billionaire than Jermaine and Tito.

figgy said...

I admit, I'm envious. Definite reveal, though.

DBZee said...

I still Janet - Miss Jackson, if you please.

Seachica said...

@Reeses -- the album was named The Velvet Rope for the kink. As I recall, she was quite open about it at the time.

JoElla Valenzuela Durham said...

Maybe now she will leave Paris and the boys alone?

Mango said...

It always bugged me when she wore sunglasses for interviews. INSIDE.

She's shown herself to be just as scandalous as the rest of that clan.

Jessie said...

Whaaaaat does "velvet rope" mean?

Agent**It said...

Jessie, if you have to ask, you''re too young to know:)

Dagny said...

Count me in for the serenade. I think @disco is right, but we could eventually agree on which songs to sing. Or maybe we should ask the serenadee if she has any requests. =)

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Wow... I have the dumb!

I saw the title "Janet Jackson Is Engaged." Looked at the photo and thought, "hey, that looks just like that little girl on 'Good Times!'"

(Mind you, I've know that was Janet on 'Good Times' for about 30 years now!)

Jessie - One definition of the velvet rope is like you see at a cinema or nightclub, and when they decide you're good enough to go inside the club, they move it aside. I have no idea of there's any other specific definition besides the obvious.
