Janet Jackson is Too Fat to Sing

http://www.egotastic.com/entertainme...to-sing-000927

Have you ever wondered what happens to pop stars who were once thin and sexy, but then balloon up in weight so that they're hardly recognizable? Well, in the case of Janet Jackson, her record label, Virgin Records, is refusing to release her latest album until Jackson loses weight, and returns to her former size. Page Six reports that this latest humiliation is just another in a long line of unpleasant events in Janet Jackson's life, of late.

"Janet had a really bad year," our spy said. "After the incident at the Super Bowl [two years ago], it just went downhill. Her album 'Damita Jo' was a flop. Then her brother Michael had the child-molestation trial - it just wasn't good to her."

Jackson found solace in food and, as recent photos will attest, has packed on the pounds. "This new album is supposed to be pretty good, but Virgin feels it can't market it without Janet being back in fighting form, so they have hired her a personal trainer and put her on a diet. She has to lose at least 20 pounds."

But a pal said: "Janet always gains weight when she's not working - and always loses it in time to promote her albums. Janet always takes care of it when it matters."

20 pounds!? It looks to me like she's gonna need to lose a lot more than that to be anywhere near her former glory. In all honesty, though, I'm fine with her staying the way she is. Who needs another Janet Jackson album, anyway?

I'm not young enough to know everything.

She definitely lost a lot compared to a few months ago. She is on her way back and she does this during her breaks between albums all the time.

They're rarely told they are too old to sing/act either!

I have no doubt she will regain her form with all that effort and patience.

Go Janet!

Need special handling...

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

That's really not true. There are almost as many pressures on male stars to look good as on females.

I've never thought of Janet as a "singer"...she's more of a performer.

that is bullshit i dont believe it can yall even imagine Virgin having the guts to say " Janet u have to lose weight or no new album" they wont dare to insult her like that and afford to lose their biggest artist. not to mention that they know that there are ALOT record labels that would die to have Janet in their label not to mention that JD Janet's boyfriend is Virgin's Urban President

anyway i want Janet to get out of Virgin SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad Virgin sucks major elephant balls at promotion and they dont really care all that much about their artists just look at Lenny Kravitz , Rolling Stones.... the artist from Virgin have to the promotion themselfs i hate Virgin records Thank God this is the last(or she has 1 more i dont remember) album Janet is making with them (and hopefully she wont resign with them) sign with Jive Janet

shouldn't that be "too fat for the music video"?

proof positive that video has trumped audio in today's music market.

anyone remember "Two Tons of Fun"?
