This is a story about control, my control. Control of what I say and control of what I do and this time I'm gonna do it my way. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Are we ready? I am. Becuase it's all about control and I've still got lot's of it !
These words rang true 20 years ago when Ms. Jackson introduced herself as a young woman in control of her life and career and it was just as relevant last night as she opened the 2006 Billboard Music Awards.
Ms Jackson gave us something old with" Pleasure Principle" and something new with the remix of "So Excited" featuring Fat Man Scoop and Fabulous.
Her performance was absolutely amazing from beginning to end ! Janet performed like it was her last time. The vocals, choreography, and costumes were perfect. Their was a coheseviness to the performance that has been lacking with many of the other "divas" of the day(I will refrain from mentioning any names). I found myself being inspired all over again, much like I was the first time I saw videos from the Control era.
This was obviously a preview of her 2007 tour. I haven't missed a show since the janet. tour and you better believe I will be there next year front and center.
I have to thank all of you who e-mail me hard to find Janet footage and photos, I really appreciate it. How did you ever guess that I'm a huge fan? LOL !
By the way, I uploaded the performance to youtube for everyone to enjoy. You can view it here below.
