Why Janet Jackson and Lauryn Hill Are Natural Phenomena

BY: GURU JAY


Believe it or not, many celebrities enjoy their private worlds. Unless you’re a reality star like Kourtney Kardashian or Kendall Jenner, you don’t desire to sign autographs while spending family time. Because Janet Jackson keeps to herself, it’s rare seeing the superstar caught up in a scandal. That’s why Jackson’s Super Bowl scene is out of the ordinary.

The beautiful Janet looks like a cross between Beyoncé and Halle Berry. She’s very conscious about appearances. Moreover, Miss Jackson is famous in her own right and not just Michael Jackson’s sister.

When I was a teenager I watched Jackson’s music videos all day long on MTV and VH1. She has the best choreography. Plus, she is an amazing dancer.

The ultimate entertainer must master many molds of entertainment. That’s why Janet is a trained actress. She started on Good Times as a little girl. Now, the Poetic Justice star has played in 3 Tyler Perry movies.

No one gets on her level just because of sexiness. Yes, the All for You singer cleans up nicely, but she commands the scene as well. People need icons to celebrate, and Jackson definitely meets the criteria.

Ideally, celebrities operate on a higher plane. When you’re as famous as Janet you can’t engage in every battle. We all should live by Janet’s motto. Next time when you and your partner get into an argument just ask them “What have you done for me lately?”

Janet Jackson markets her brand like Prince. She makes moves when, where, and how she wants. It takes guts to stand up to the Paparazzi. Janet doesn’t play their game or feed into their maniacal questions.

Although the former Virgin label singer is quiet and shy, she is also exotic and mysterious.

When my Usher album won’t suffice, I listen to Mystery of Iniquity singer Lauryn Hill. I admire Lauryn because she created her own category. The Ex Factor was one of the first female singers/rappers.

Although Lauryn Hill has a sweet smile, she frowns on corporate politics. Kanye West said it best “I wish her heart was still in rhyming.” Her time with the Fugees was valuable. Remember Killing Me Softly, Nothing Even Matters, and Doo-Wop (That Thing). Don’t forget Lauryn was one of the most celebrated singers in the late 1990s and early 2000s. 

1998’s the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill went number 1. And 2002’s MTV Unplugged No 2.0 was number 2. Furthermore, Hill received numerous awards for her music. While Lauryn’s work is scarce, she is strong. What’s more, she influences today’s music artists.

Lauryn lets it all go to the point she bares her soul. On the other hand, Janet Jackson gives you just enough so you’ll come back for more. I would like to see a Lauryn and Janet collaborative concert. 

Lauryn Hill and Janet Jackson are successful in different ways. Yet, they are one in the same. If Janet is a hurricane, then Lauryn Hill is a tornado.
