Tara's Transformation

  • Lindsay Lohan will reportedly soon move out of L.A.’s Chateau Marmont — where she’s been living for over a year — and into a $2.85 million pad in the Sierra towers. Apparently the Marmont pressured Lindsay to leave because her late-night partying was disruptive.
  • George Clooney tactfully shrugged off suggestions that he might run for office Monday, even though fans have started calling for the liberal-minded activist to run for President in 2008. Clooney was on hand for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s signing of legislation aimed at helping to stop violence in Darfur.
  • MTV’s Spankin’ New Music Week is allowing free downloads of exclusive tracks. JoJo performs on TRL tomorrow and Fergie on Friday!

Janet Jackson performing “So Excited” on The Oprah Winfrey Show. If you follow So You Think You Can Dance, choreographer Brian Freedman and Season One contestant Blake McGrath are back-up dancers. Blake is also in the official “So Excited” music video. Sucks that it’s never played on MTV… Poor Ms. Jackson… ):

    “So Excited” should have been the first single off of Janet’s new CD, instead of that God-awful “Call on Me” with Nelly (NELLY? Seriously?) and that horrible “The Cell”-inspired video….. if this had come first I don’t think anyone would have been calling Janet over.

    Although… KHIA??? hahaha….ok then

    I am disappointed that Janet does not understand the relationship betweeen image ans success. The ONLY reason the Jackson 5, the Jacksons, Michael and a Solo Artist and Janet (earlier years) were successful is BECAUSE of the IMAGE. After the superbowl issue, one would think that she would clean it up a bit and come back as she was (ie Control-Rythmn Nation) Her latter CD’s were not as successful. Perhaps the music was good, but the IMAGE was the turn off. It’s all marketing and I cannot understand why some artists are atuned to this. Berry Gordy was a Master at image projection and media manipulation. It’s just not enough these days to sell CD’s because technology has changed so much, artist are not going to profit as much from merely sales. They have to do movies, product marketing, concerts (esp. in Europe). . . Janet looks great, the music has a great vibe, it’s very catch. She however, does not look as well put together as she did in RN. She has NO specific causes that she fights for. Her image is specifically one dimensional and it is my opinion that having a one dimensional medial image is not an ingredient for over the top success. The dancers’ appearance (ie costume) were distracting. They could have all worn torn jeans and T-shirts and the total look would have been more attractive. I honestly don’t know how some publicists keep their jobs in HW. I think it’s important to keep your finger on the pulse of America when you represent someone. America basically is a moral society-which means overall you do not invite the ENTIRE NATION into your personal and very private world. Leave it to the imagination. I personally do not need to know who is a freak in the bedroomand who isn’t. If I want your music I will buy it because of what it sounds like. However, if I have to constantly see you naked or half naked all over the place and read about your bedroom antics and see videos of you simulating your sexual fantasies, I will be more inclined to just leave the CD at the store.-JMHO-Malibumom
