Miss Jackson –Janet, if you’re nasty– is back! After the stunning and untimely passing of her closest brother, Michael “King of Pop” Jackson, she’s been the sane and professional face of the Jackson Family.

Her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards stunned audience members who may have forgotten why she reigned the top of the charts and dance floor for many years, and proved herself as a consummate professional.

Many have tried to dethrone her while her rival Madonna gets skinnier and crazier, only to become Lady Gaga. Miss Janet is an incredible performer with real women curves, and a talent that leaves Britney-wannabes in the dust.

Well, Miss Jackson threw herself an “I’m Back!” party after the American Music Awards called “The Number Ones.”

Check out the blinding bling and beauty of some of the best performers and actors around today!

Ms. Jackson went from slinky to nice girl, as she wore fresh taupe colors in a preppy ensemble that included menswear-inspired trousers.

The 2009 MTV VMAs take a hard left to crazy town

If anyone missed MTV’s Video Music Awards, it was just as squirrely and nutty as 2009 has been, so far. For some reason, people are acting as if the planets are aligned, or if the sky is turning red with blood… and the VMAs didn’t disappoint in the fruitcake department.

Remember When MTV Told Billie Jean to Beat It?

Always a beacon of cutting edge, rock n’ roll antics, the VMAs finally paid tribute to Michael Jackson beyond the past press stunts. (And, lest we forget, they originally refused to play any videos from Michael Jackson’s “Off the Wall” album
because MTV thought of themselves as a “rock” station, and MJ was just a little too r&b… I guess the “M” in MTV wasn’t for Music.) As usual, Michael’s little sister –and closest sibling– classed up the awards show with an amazing virtual “dance off” from their J-Pop, hyper-stylized duet video “Scream.”

Where Are the 12 Year Old Dancers?

Aside from Russell Brand’s randy and risque hosting, the show took a decidedly Fellini-esque turn into BET territory with their tepid, oddly lip-synched performances –though Pink was good– and straight to the bizarre antics of nominee Kanye “I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob” West. (I’d show you a video in this section, but MTV –i.e., the Anti-Christ Justice League– only wants you to view the outburst on their site and 500 more times in their reruns.)

Wu-Tang is for the Children

When singer Taylor Swift (no, I have no clue who she is other than hearing her name fifty times on each TMZ show) won a Moon Man for Best Female Video Award, she graciously came on stage to accept her award and to give her speech.

Well, Mr. West pulled an O.D.B (“Wu-Tang is for the children”) and bum

rushed her speech with a rant about how Beyonce “Rump Shaker” Knowles-Z should have won for “Single Ladies.” Um, either way, just why?

Poor Taylor stood their stunned and humiliated. Again, lest we forget, this is not Kanye’s first go-round on the crazy carousel, nor his first time taking us with him.

Does no one remember the 2006 MTV Europe Awards when Kanye felt he should’ve won the award because, you know, he spent, “…(O)ver a million dollars”?

Aside from all that, he and Janet actually made the awards show worth watching, and his date was Grace Jones cool sexy. He did 2009 proud…

Janet Jackson to perform a tribute at VMAs

Daily News reports that Janet Jackson is set to perform a tribute at the MTV Video Music Awards (“VMA”) for her brother Michael Jackson, who passed away June 25, 2009.  The VMAs have always featured ground-breaking acts, or performers who want to make a statement, whether it’s a tribute (remember Sean Combs’ tribute to the Notorious B.I.G.), or a comeback (remember Britney Spears), the VMAs are sure to attract a large audience.

The tribute precedes the controversial, yet star-studded, tribute for Michael Jackson, which is set to occur in Vienna, Austria.
