Janet Jackson Appears on ‘Leno,’ Set to Release New Ballad

Jay Leno and Janet Jackson

Jay Leno played nice with his guest Janet Jackson on Thursday’s “Tonight Show,” which marked her first televised appearance to promote Why Did I Get Married Too?, in theaters April 2. The youngest Jackson chatted about the Oscars and Grammys, her upcoming book, how she channeled her emotions in the movie, and doling out advice to friends.

Janet also contributes to the Tyler Perry film’s soundtrack on the first single “Nothing.” The ballad, penned specifically for the comedy-drama, was co-produced by Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox, and will be available March 30 on iTunes.

“You haven’t heard Janet sound like this in a long time and I think the song is perfect for the movie,” says J.D., whose So So Def Records will release the soundtrack. “It’s a really good record.”

    She’s such a classy and special lady. I’ve always loved her spirit and honesty. I think this movie is going to be great, I’ve seen several trailers and the emotion she put into this character is astounding. I cried just by watching this one clip, which says to me that the intensity of her delivery is exceptional. God Bless you Janet and your entire family.

    Leno made Michael look like a pedophile on one of his shows, I can`t believe Janeth is going with the guy even in pics after what he did to her brother:(

    Agreed Mrs. Blossom…I was so disappointed in Janet that she agreed to appear on Leno’s show after what he did to Michael Jackson. It was “jokes” like his that abounded in popular culture that made the general public think that it was a forgone conclusion that he was actually guilty of those heinous acts when in fact he was NOT…never was. It ruined Michael Jackson. Personally & professionally. He owes Michael’s kids a HUGE apology. I wonder how they feel seeing Aunt Janet cozying up with Leno in the name of marketing her latest movie.
