cool and classy

If you tuned into last night’s live broadcast of the 15th Annual “BET Awards” then you know it was a night filled with stars and style. After an awesome dance/music tribute to Janet Jackson’s greatest hits featuring dance moves from Ciara (among others), there was no doubt “The Rhythm Nation” was back in full force. And, once music superstar Janet Jackson took the stage to accept the first ever “Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual” Award, everyone knew The Queen of Pop was back on the scene. With her latest single (“No Sleeep”) as an introduction, Janet appeared wearing a white jumpsuit and sporting a burnished-brown curly mane. Amidst a standing ovation and fans shouting, “I love you” at her, Janet smiled and in return said, “I love you, too.” She then graciously thanked all those involved in helping to make her career a success—including her parents (seated in the audience) and her legion of fans (who no doubt are looking forward to her first studio album in seven years and her 37-date Unbreakable World Tour). We want to thank you, too, Janet for providing the soundtrack to countless lives…and for always keeping it cool and classy. Brava!
