In an email from her official website it has been confirmed that Janet will appear on tonight’s 2008 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. The awards will air live from 8pm ET.
The email suggested that Janet will be making an appearance at the start, saying, “Make sure you watch from the beginning… hint hint.”
In an interview with BlackBook Magazine, Janet has revealed how she often finds it difficult to sleep at night:
“It’s a big issue [insomnia].
“My doctor is not happy with me. I have to take these [supplements] otherwise my brain won’t stop, and I just lay there all night, thinking about everything.
“Usually I just wind up watching cartoons – The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Johnny Quest, Superfriends, you know, the classics.
“And if I get to catch Family Guy, I’m happy. I’m just a kid at heart. Just a big kid.”
She also spoke of her shyness in front of the camera:
“I just get embarrassed so easily.
“Sometimes I feel like I’m in the wrong profession. You know, a photographer will ask me to do something, and I think, ‘What? With all these people around, staring?’
“I don’t know, I guess it’s my insecurity. Maybe when I’m 90, I won’t care and just stick my ass out. But until I’m comfortable…” And she revealed a talent for impersonation.
“My thing was to do impressions [as a child].
“My friends even to this day say I’m an excellent mimic. It comes from being around so many voices at one time.

In a new radio interview with Orlando’s XL106.7FM on Thursday (20th March), Janet has revealed she expects the first show of her upcoming tour to be on September 15th. Janet also speaks about her relationship with the paparazzi, confirmed that she will soon be visiting Europe and Asia to promote Discipline and revealed she hopes to film another movie shortly:
“I’ve gotten in a lot of scripts and I was hoping to do a film before I started promoting the album, but the strike happened so we went forward with promoting the album. But now that the strike is over I have to refigure out the timing of it all because I’m going to be getting into tour rehearsals pretty soon – in a couple of months – and the first show is mid-September.”
