Janet Jackson Does Harper's Bazaar: Confirms Singledom & VMA Tribute

And this is why I heart me some Janet Jackson:

She is looking stunning with her Old Hollywood glamourpuss self on the cover of the October subscriber issue of Harper's Bazaar. It's her first interview since the death of her brother Michael. And she's opening up: Janet is also now single, recently breaking off her seven-year relationship with music producer Jermaine Dupri. Does she still believe in marriage? "For [some] people, sure! I don't know if I'll get married again. [She's been married twice, as a teen to James DeBarge and to choreographer Rene Elizondo.] I'll put it like this: If God wants me to, then I will." Dating? "Yeah, I've had people ask me out. I haven't entertained any offers thus far, but I'm locking myself in my work right now." Some might say boys smell anyway. "Yeah, they stink," she chuckles, "and they're dirty." Another interesting snippet: "I always wanted to have my mother's [Katherine Jackson] strength, but I didn't know if it was really there. But a few years back, something happened and I learned that I did." She fixes you with a keen gaze. "I'm not going to mention it, but we all know what it is. And now, coming off all this, it's even beyond that. I was just focused on my job at that moment within my family." She pauses. "Now at least I know that I can step up to the plate and not crumble when I'm needed. When it comes to something like this that is so, so serious, so painful, so traumatic, I can handle it."

TIDBITS: MJB Covers Essence Bishop Weeks Getting REMARRIED+Princess & The Frog Official Trailer

For the umpteenth time. Mary J. Blige is Essence's cover girl. But at least she's looking fabulous:

Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J. Blige graces the cover of ESSENCE's October issue (for the tenth time!) in a piece where she talks about her latest album, "Stronger;" her role in Tyler Perry's new movie, "I Can Do Bad All By Myself;" her foundation to help young women, the Foundation For the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN); and the 15th anniversary of her album "My Life." In honor of the album's milestone, ESSENCE asked its readers what they would like to ask Mary J. by posting more than 100 questions on Twitter and ESSENCE.com. Find out what burning questions Mary J.'s fans asked—and how she answered each of them from the heart.

Do you feel any pressure to keep pumping out hits because of the younger artists?—Angie Kyles, Los Angeles MARY J. BLIGE: I feel no pressure. I pump out hits for my fans. They just want to hear from me. I don't compete with the young generation, I learn from them. I listen to what they're saying, so I can get a little bit of that, so we can cross, so we can have an understanding and hear each other. When I listen to your music I can't help but feel the emotion, whether it is joy, pain, anger or bitterness. How do you control and channel your emotions to give us these great performances?—Adina Oubre, New Orleans Every lyric in my songs is real to me, so I channel the words and the feelings. Whatever those different songs are, they really are relatable to me. And then the fans give me the energy back, because they're basically saying, "It's us too Mary," so I just take it to the next level. I always wondered why, and I'm not hating on Faith Evans (I love her too), but were you to be the First Lady of Bad Boy?—Erica Neal,Columbus, Ohio If I wasn't signed to MCA, it could have been me, which I believe Puff would have wanted. But I understand Puff is a businessman, so he had to go get his First Lady, which I understand. It took me a couple of years to understand, but you know, after a while I was like, "Oh, okay. He had to do that," because he didn't have a female artist over there. The rest of the article is here.

And look who's getting remarried:

Bishop Thomas Weeks has more than moved on from his tumultuous relationship with ex-wife Juanita Bynum. He's getting married to a chick young enough to be his daughter. Why are we not surprised?  His bride to be is Christina Glenn and they're getting hitched this October.


And here's the OFFICIAL trailer for Disney's The Princess And The Frog movie. Too excited about this. News on 50 Cent when you read the rest...

TIDBITS: Frankie, Neffie, Jay-Z Will Be On "Oprah Show", & Janet

Our photographer spotted Frankie at an art event in Atlanta hosted by Upscale magazine.  And no, we have no clue who invited her or where she shops for her event clothes:

Even Boris was a bit confused.

Photog: Paras Griffin

Speaking of Frankie, her daughter Neffe claims that whole Twitter fiasco with ATL Housewife Kim Zolciak was a misunderstanding.  Because "The Real Neffe" isn't her:

It was a rude awakening to start my day receiving phone calls about some so-called “twitter beef” I have going on with one of the Atlanta Housewives and one that I don’t even really know. First of all, this twitter account circulating with my name is NOT ME. I don’t even really twitter and I especially wouldn’t spend energy to post anyone’s personal information on a world-wide forum, for what? That serves no purpose to me. Secondly, I am raising a family and have too many daily responsibilities that take up too much of my valuable time t o be involving myself in some petty, childish foolishness.

And please know that I must be growing and changing because even though I am mad as hell that someone feels the need to misrepresent me in the most unnecessary way, I refuse to get involved in a catty battle with someone that I don’t even know. So to the haters, sorry to disappoint if you were expecting me to revert back to behaviors of the past, but I have too much joy in my life to have it be compromised by a false rumor. And with that said, I look forward to really getting deep into this blog and sharing experiences and asking you guys questions that will hopefully move us all in a more positive direction.

"Don't really Twitter". I mean...either you do or you don't. Can't half a half Twitter account. And some kind of way the "fake Neffe: had the correct phone number for Kim. So I don't know. This whole situation seems suspect.

Here's what "The Real Neffe" posted on Twitter before this statement came out:
