I WENT TO THE VELVET ROPE CONCERT! Janet performed at Hardee's Pavillon Walnut Creek in Raleigh, North Carolina on the 20th of October 1998. I thought I was not going to be able to make it to see her, but fortunately I was able to go and the concert was amazing! No Sleep, All night, Go Deep!!!! Janet looked great. She has lost weight and she was beautiful. I was not the guy she picked to go on stage, but I actually knew the guy that did get picked, so it was awesome to see. I am so glad I went, and I love her even more. Not that you could tell since I have a homepage about her :) ANyways, Janet is the bomb, and the Velvet Rope is awesome. If you haven't gotten the CD, then go ahead and get it cause it is the best. And if you have it already, then listen to FREE ZONE!!!

Here is Some Older news from Last year
Janet appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show on November 19. She looked as beautiful as ever. She performed two of Oprah's favorite songs, Got Til Its Gone, and Together Again. Janet looked absolutely stunning, and performed beautifully. She danced in both numbers and is once again coming out with a new dance style that I will have to learn. She also spoke with Oprah about rumors of her depression, the reason she hasn't spoken to Michael in 2 years, and the reasons for her new piercings, including a nipple ring. Also discussed was her "spiritual marriage" to Rene. I didn't know they were so serious, guess there is no hope for us anymore :) But seriously, she did very well in the interview, and I for one am proud of what she is doing, and I support all the changes she is making. I am glad that she is starting to do things for herself, and not others, and I think she is as beautiful as always. But enough personal stuff.

JANET JACKSON- "Together Again" (4:07)
One of numerous flashes of brilliance on La J's new collection, "The Velvet Rope," "Together again" is a gorgeous disco ode to loved ones lost to AIDS-related illnesses. Unlike other songs of this ilk, this one is awash in refreshing, infectious joy. Jackson has clearly been studying her Donna Summer records, delivering a wonderfully nuanced performance that takes firm command of the track's vibrant house beat without sacrificing an ounce of emotion. Be on the lookout for a pile of remixes that promise to explore every nook and cranny of club and jeep culture.
