Janet on the cover of Essence Magazine with Beyonc� and Mary J Blige

24

Janet will appear on the cover of Essence Magazine’s bumper June edition posing with Beyoncé Knowles and Mary J Blige, Janet Love can reveal.

However, The Daily Mirror claims that 22-year-old Beyoncé, who has been nominated for two Brit Awards, only agreed to do the shoot if she was in the middle. But execs at Essence want superstar Janet in the centre.

All three artists have agreed to pose. But no one’s had the guts to tell Beyoncé that she’ll be shunted to one side to make room for Janet.

A magazine insider told a British newspaper today: “This is going to be the biggest diva-fest since Whitney duetted with Mariah. Beyoncé may have got her way with Destiny’s Child, but this is a whole different kettle of fish. It’s going to be hard to keep everyone and their entourages happy.

“Beyoncé is the hottest thing in music right now – she has four Grammy nominations, number ones all over the globe and wants to take centre stage. But as far as Janet’s concerned, it’s a case of ‘been there, done that’.”

The pair meet at next month’s Super Bowl, where is Janet is the star of the half-time entertainment and Beyoncé is to sing the US national anthem at the start.

Maybe they can fight it out then!

  1. I don’t know who beyonce thinks she is ,but she better learn her place really quick. I mean the fact that Janet didn’t eveb have to say anything about the situation to get the center spot says who runs the show. Beyonce is going to get her feelings hurt.

  2. :crazy: beyonce needs to f*ckin learn her place she wants to be center stage every where. beyonce is the female P.DIDDY she wants every thing focused on her. well the b*tch needs to understand that she cant and will never compare to janet. JANET JACKSON is so beautiful and talented and is not in every where like beyonce is. :angry:

  3. Janet is the true star here if Beyonce keeps on acting the way she is she will get hers one day cus god dont like ugly. So Beyonce you need to step off and keep your day job. Because Janet will always be the diva to rule. 🙂

  4. WELL!! YOU GUYS!! IMnot even going to say anything because you up there !! spok the truth !!i really like other female singers , but when they try to comprae them self with MISS JACKSON!!!! ITS A NO ! NO!! I WORSHIP JANET SHE’S MY GODESS

  5. Hello! Have you heard of tabloid rumors? That Beyonce being a diva ish is getting old. Beyonce is definitely not wanting to be in the middle. She loves Janet just like the rest of us, and wants Janet in the middle of everything anyway. If anybody’s pressing her to be in the middle (which I don’t believe), it’s probably some management who got a little big-headed.

  6. Well, like I stated before, One can’t always believe what the media prints especially in a situation like this b/c for 1, the media always wants to portray female stars (whether they be movie or music stars) as backstabbin’ b*^ches, who always want to take the spotlight away from each other, and who will stop at nothin’ to do so but… if this story is true then, I’ll just say this…

    Beyone needs to SLOW HER DAMN ROLL,and realize until she’s…

    1.) been in the music biz 21 yrs., and is still a superstar to this day
    2.) sells over 70 mil+ records
    3.) receives over 100 awards for musical achievement & humanitarian efforts
    4.) has all the pop n’ r&b chicks bitin’ her style
    5.) sold out stadiums & arenas worlwide
    6.) considered to be one of a very few singers who CAN REALLY ACT
    7.) And, I can go on & on, but… I’ve used up enough space on here already. *lol*

    Li’l Ms. Beyonce needs to chill-out & realize that having…

    1.) 2 lame a$$ movies under her belt
    2.) a couple of Grammy nods
    3.) a rapper-boyfriend
    4.) couple of videos everybody seems to keep sweatin’ at the moment where you do nothin’ but shake your a$$ to your own lame-a$$ music…

    DOES NOT MAKE A SUPERSTAR, WHO EVERYBODY WILL STILL BE JOCKIN’ 21 YRS. LATER, LIKE IS THE CASE W/ JANET.

  7. Much Respect Amanda D. thas Hott bizz!! lol
    Beyonce is on a rampage, but whateva, yeah she can sing..so what thas been established. they need to give her ass a grammy for Artist who can kill a song by oversinging. besides even if Janet wasn’t in the photo shoot MAry J would not take a back seat to Beyonce. She’s been in the Biz longer the B. Im not worried as far as im concerned they can do the damn shoot without her! Ya feel me!! Sh*t , now that i think about it does she need to be on the cover, I’d rather see Janet’s mini me (AShanti)!! Lol
    Wait I just thought about that how is Ashanti, Janet’s Mini me, she can’t DANCE or SING to save her life!!…….Sorry to all her fans but its so true she is only being paid because she is pretty.
    If Beyonce dont want to be on the sidelines like she will be until she can sell at least more than 20 mil, than get someone else or shoot without her DAMN!! i really hope for her that this is all a rumor !

  8. OMG! DAmn! Beyonce shouldn’t even be in the cover! All she did was make ONE solo album! Janet’s been making music since Michael’s thriller!!!! Beyonce thinks she’s a Jackson but she ain’t nuttin but a fat ass losa!

  9. Beyonce betta sit her lil happy azz down somewheres. Yall summed it up, but can i just say that the lil heffa prolly got in the muzic biz BECAUSE of Janet! holla

  10. I SEE IT LIKE DIS……IF BEYONCE DID SAY THAT SHIT, THEN SHE WILL B HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED……. I WONDER WAT SHE WAS DOIN, THAT MIN THE THOUGHT CAME IN HER HEAD…LOL SHE MUST B OUT HER MIND…….BUT MOST LIKELY ITS NOT TURE THE MEDIA HAS IT OUT 4 HER SINCE SHE WAS IN THAT GROUP….

  11. Amanda D. u aint tell no lies yet gurl and sista came prepared with lists too 😀 go on gurl do ya thing,I’m lovin that! JANET has done so much she’s one of the most recognizable faces ever, now I dont know what went on so I cant talk but if beyonce thinks she can upstage JANET she better go and come again and see if she can catch herself, coz yea ok she did a movie with Mike Myers he still aint no Tupac and until u can have everybody quotin’ u , u aint done nuttin , I can’t count how many times i’ve said "I’m a black woman I deserve rescpect" and that "You wanna smell my punanie?" thing was crazy 😀 and the poetry in that movie was deep.
    When it comes down to it most of these young female singers are just Janet clones or tryin to be.

  12. beyonce’ needs to take a back seat for now and take notes because the legend is back don’t get me wrong beyonce fabulous but she’ll never be bad as janet she hasn’t paid all her dues yet. janet jackson is baddest female entertainer of all time in my book and know one has to agreewith me on that mya, britney , beyonce, tlc etc they’ve all been inspired by her.

  16. I feel ya Kurt, she really does need to take a back seat coz when ya think of it theyre insultin’ Janet and Mary J for that fact coz Mary’s been doin her thing for a while now and shez worked with so many big names come on the lady’s worked with Elton John for goodness sake and I dont even need to list all the things Janet’s done, so why are they on a cover with Beyonce shez been out since when? Well who the hell even cares. She just popped on the seen of late and wants to catch an attitude. Janet and Mary J are the true veterans there I say they get together bitch slap that lil miss "I’m so great" and do the photo shoot together. lol 😀

  18. When I come to think of it, it is a real insult to Janet and Mary for that fact to have them on a cover with beyonce. They’re both veterans in the biz , Mary has worked with such big names, come on the woman’s collaberated with Sir Elton John for goodness sake and I dont even need to add to Amanda D.’s list on Janet’s accomplishments and beyonce came on the sceen as a solo artist, when, last year? Well who the hell even cares. I don’t think shez done enuf to be on the cover with them, I think they should get together and bitch slap Miss "I’m so important" stuff her "ignant" ass in her dressin room and do the shoot together. 😛 :satisfied:

  21. I justed wanted to inform everyone including the media, that this whole Beyonce and Janet issue is a big RUMOR!! I am currently an intern working for the publications of Essence and it is confirmed that someone in management wanted Beyonce in the middle but Beyonce INSISTED that Janet OR Mary take the coveted spot. Beyonce DID NOT want the spot light on her and I’ve met her personally and I can honestly tell you that her attitude was much more nicer and down to earth than Janet and/or Mary’s. So all the rumors regarding that is FALSE. Beyonce, Janet, and Mary all had a great time at the photoshoot and all three were very excited to see one another. And I also remember that Janet and Beyonce were discussing hotel plans for their big Superbowl weekend plans since BOTH will be performing. So to tell you one thing Beyonce HATES to be center of attention but the MEDIA wants her to be. Because Beyonce is honestly better looking in person. Janet and Mary does not have natural beauty as Beyonce does. Beyonce just has this presence that she brings when she walks in a room. She has a bright future ahead of her and we can only wait to see. Thank you
