Janet Jackson holds it together

Monday, April 5, 2010


Janet Jackson, music royalty and one of the youngest 42-year-olds in the world, is back on the big screen in Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married, Too," and it seems that she and both Jill Scott were going through absolute hell while filming, even though part of the set was done in Barbados.
We all know Janet's ordeal with her brother Michael Jackson's death (and the ongoing NippleGate saga), but few knew that Jill Scott was going through a torturous divorce around the same time.
It says something when two music stars, not necessarily known for their acting (at least in the case of Scott) can pull off some fine, theatrical acting under stress.
Jackson said Perry is a stern director but he was patient with her after her brother died.
Perry was "constantly calling me, making sure I was OK, making sure that there wasn't anything that I needed or my family needed," she said.
Perry said he expects to do more movies about marriage and relationships in the future.
Jackson and her family are about to relive the horror all over again as a nasty trial over her brother's death is sure to open newly mended wounds.

I'm looking forward to seeing this film. I heard that both Janet and Jill gave some pretty powerful performances. Perhaps this is why. Of course I knew what Janet is carrying, but I didn't know that Jill was going through it that hard either. So unfortunate, but pain always brings the greatest creativity.

I saw it, and ... it's good! Of course, TP always has the most overly dramatic situations, but it's great, and more importantly, much-needed in the African-American pantheon of great films.
