Janet Jackson -- If the Glove Fits

9/8/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson has been busting her butt rehearsing for a Michael Jackson tribute at the MTV Video Awards this weekend -- and it promises to be a nipple-free affair. We think.

Ms. Jackson is set to put on a huge MJ-honoring performance featuring 20 backup dancers -- which is being put together by some of the best choreographers in the world, including Frank Gatson and Travis Payne.

According to one of the dancers involved, some rehearsals have lasted 15 hours a day.

Once Janet is finished honoring her brother, we're told, "there won't be a dry eye in the house."

MJ-UNBREAKABLE    

One more JacksonKid82:
It is not a question whether we would be able to cope with such pain the Jackson family is into - it is much rather a question not to bring your own family into such situations and to protect your own family from pain. This is it about! But that's something the Jackson family has never ever done. For this family it is all about money.

Let Michael Jackson rest in peace finally!
Michael - love you more!

I wish to see it. I am sure that she would do a great job.
Her style and quality of her work reflects MJ's music/dance.
She will do great.

Janet opens up about her brother's death
Thursday, September 10, 2009 » 07:35pm AEST(Australia)

Janet Jackson has spoken publicly for the first time since the death of her brother.

The singer told Harper's Bizarre magazine that she hasn't watched television since Michael died, choosing to block herself off completely from the media coverage she described as 'hysterial'.

She also says she's thrown herself into work as a coping mechanism and has realised she's stronger than she thinks.

God bless you Janet,you're in my thoughts and prayers..R.I.P Michal Jackson..love you more..

And Jacksonkid82 if you are for real, could you please send Jackie Jackson out as spokesman for your family instead of Jermaine? He is the oldest brother and much easier on the eyes. People would respect the oldest son, but not Jermaine. He is the one who is making your family look bad. The thing with him having kids with his own brother's wife is hard to take, that did it for me, that speaks of character and that's a real devious person. Its obvious to all that Jermaine was jealous of his brother MJ, that is a known fact, and as fans we are not going to let him get away with anything. We will put him on blast. He cannot have a career without fans period. Someone in your family needs to explain to him that his time for stardom has long passed and that we do not want him singing Michael's songs, PERIOD. He is also starting to look suspect in what has happened with MJ - he is turning the spotlight on himself because of his greed and trying to capitalize and take everything his brother worked for. MJ deserved to have been buried on time and not have his body kept out for a reality show staring the Jacksons! A body out for two months and the grandmother is OK with that???? What kind of family does this - especially after all MJ has done for you. But we have to include the burial for ratings. Talk about DISRESPECT. You cannot tell us this is not about money. MJ is rich because we made him rich and we want to know where his money is going so we are going to be all over this situation. He is the gift that keeps on giving and to us your family is not respecting that. We also want to know what happened to him and who did it, I mean all the players and since he is not here to fight we are fighting for him.
