Even at 10 years old, Janet Jackson was a force to be reckoned with. 

In a YouTube video posted by an account named Moonwalker, Michael Jackson invited his younger sister onstage at the 1977 American Music Awards as part of a brief comedy bit while co-presenting alongside Fred Allen Berry and Lola Falana. 

On her brother’s cue, Jackson strutted onto the stage in a bright yellow and pink gown with bedazzled accents weaving across the front. The dress and matching hat also featured layers of tulle that added a textured dimension to the look. 

Although Jackson wasn’t given any lines, the laughter and clapping from the crowd showed that she stole the show.

Jackson’s first major Hollywood role was in 1977 when she was cast to play Millicent “Penny” Gordon on the beloved sitcom “Good Times.”

Jackson’s attire on the show mimicked the bold color palette prevalent throughout the 1970s, including in this portrait photo of the cast. Her dress, paired with knee-high socks and a matching bow, was definitely in step with the style of the time. 

In 2012, Jackson told Anderson Cooper that a “Good Times” wardrobe staffer suggested she bind her chest and a producer once said she was “too heavy.”

“I was getting dressed for the very first episode — now this is my first time away from my family,” Jackson said. “The wardrobe lady, while she was dressing me, said I had to put bandages around [my] chest.” 

“I immediately thought, as I am isn’t good enough,” she said. 

Jackson teased her fierce, tough side with a simple black T-shirt and jeans in the “Pleasure Principle” music video.

Jackson began to show different layers to her style repertoire in 1986 with her smash album, “Control.” 

The music video for “Pleasure Principle,” which won best choreography at the 1988 MTV Video Music Awards, featured Jackson dancing around an empty loft in a black T-shirt and black jeans that were cinched at the waist with a belt. 

While Jackson’s ensemble is simple, the attire alongside the song’s catchy lyrics and choreography have cemented the project in music history. 

Jackson solidified herself as a fashion icon by wearing the legendary “Rhythm Nation” outfit.

By 1989, Jackson had officially forged a successful path outside of her brothers’ accomplishments. The release of her fourth studio album, “Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814,” catapulted her straight to the top. 

While the song received many accolades, it’s her military-style uniform featured in the “Rhythm Nation” music video that’s continued to transcend decades. The outfit included a cropped black jacket with 80s-style shoulder pads, silver buckles, a leather collar, and black pants paired with matching boots. 

Jackson finished the look off with a ponytail and a black baseball cap that had the phrase “1814.”  

Other artists have paid homage to Jackson’s outfit, including in 2014 when Beyonće, and her daughter Blue Ivy, channeled Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson for Halloween. Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt also mimicked the outfit in 2015 when he performed on Paramount Network’s TV series “Lip Sync Battle.”

Janet Jackson punctuated her “Poetic Justice” era with long box braids and cinched light-wash jeans.

Jackson’s iconic box braids became a staple of her style in the early 1990s. Around that time, Jackson filmed and starred in the 1993 film “Poetic Justice” directed by the late John Singleton, alongside rapper Tupac Shakur, and Regina King. The movie also featured poetry by Maya Angelou. 

In the film, Jackson sported a black, long-sleeve shirt with a square neckline and a pair of light-wash jeans cinched with a belt. Her box braids were topped off with a black newsboy hat. 

Tanisha Ford, author of “Dressed in Dreams” and associate professor of Africana Studies and History at the University of Delaware, spoke to HelloBeautiful in 2019 about the significance of Jackson’s box braids for Black people. 

“When I think box braids, I think Janet Jackson’s character in poetic justice,” Ford told the outlet. “Box Braids have always been a part of the culture from as long as I can remember, some version of them … but when Janet Jackson wore them, it elevated those braids to a certain level of like Black girl glam that is still felt every day and around the way in ways that we all wanted them.”

Jackson was a vision of white at the Grammy Awards in 1993.

While still rocking the “Poetic Justice” box braids, Jackson attended the 35th Annual Grammy Awards that same year in a captivating all-white, double-breasted pantsuit.

She elevated the look by also wearing silver jewelry and a white headscarf to style her braids in a flowing updo.

In 1995, Jackson and her brother, Michael, attempted to dominate the music industry with their single, “Scream.” Jackson garnered attention for her shaggy tresses and dark makeup in the music video. 

The two wore matching black textured long sleeve shirts and black leather pants. 

Rolling Stone reported that the clothes fetched $125,000 as part of the “​​Iconic Treasures From the legendary Career and Life of Janet Jackson” sale with Julien’s Auctions in 2011. 

One of Jackson’s more eye-catching ensembles came after her sixth studio album, “The Velvet Rope,” in 1997.

Around the time she released her sixth studio album, “The Velvet Rope,” Jackson’s style did a 180° turn when she dyed her naturally dark hair orange. While performing at the Smash Hits Poll Winners’ Party at the London Arena, she styled her hair in a series of smaller ponytails to highlight the new color.

Jackson also donned a punk rock-inspired fit created out of what appears to be a sheer black top, a cut-up red bustier with small strings of jewelry hanging across the front, dark cargo pants, and chunky boots. 

The outfit was completed with a large gold necklace that acted as a pseudo collar. 

Jackson continued to play with her hairstyle while performing on “The Velvet Rope Tour.”

“The Velvet Rope Tour” lasted from 1998 to 1999 and visited audiences across the globe.

Jackson kept her fierce persona going by wearing a cropped double-breasted jacket with prominent sleeve cuffs, a striped waistcoat peeking out from underneath, and wide-leg pants.

Her dark bangs featured glimpses of red as a possible nod to her previous dye job.

Keanu Reeve’s performance as Neo in the 1999 film “The Matrix” was a pop-cultural phenomenon, so it’s no surprise celebrities dove into the futuristic, post-apocalyptic aesthetic that transfixed Hollywood at the time. 

Jackson’s red carpet outfit at the 2000 MTV Movie Awards may have been a small homage, as she wore a floor-length leather gown topped with a leather trench coat. 

During the event, Jackson presented Keanu Reeves with an award for best male performance for his work in the film.

By 2001, Jackson had been in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years, prompting MTV to pay tribute to the international superstar. According to IMDb, Jackson was the inaugural “MTV Icon” honored at the network. 

Jackson was escorted onstage by André 3000 and Big Boi of Outkast while they sang a “Ms. Jackson” rendition of their hit song for the crowd. Jackson donned a shiny gold crop top and suede wide-leg pants adorned with flower designs and fringe. 

The event included several stars who covered Jackson’s classics, including Destiny’s Child, *NSYNC, Pink, Usher, and Mya.

In 2004, Jackson performed alongside a number of artists — including P. Diddy and Nelly — at the Super Bowl XXXVIII Halftime Show, which became one of the most infamous Super Bowl performances to date. 

When it came time to perform “Rhythm Nation,” Jackson appeared onstage in a black bustier decorated with small metal pieces woven throughout the fabric, wide pants, and boots. The ensemble was elevated with pops of red across Jackson’s chest and on her fingernails. 

At one point during the “Rock Your Body” duet with Justin Timberlake, he accidentally tore Jackson’s costume, which bared her breast on live TV.  Jackson, Timberlake, and MTV all released statements following the incident. 

Insider’s Kim Renfro previously reported on how the incident changed the trajectory of Jackson’s career following the backlash.

Jackson later paid tribute to McQueen with her outfit at the “Why Did I Get Married Too” premiere red carpet in March 2010. He died by suicide in February of that year. 

“[McQueen was the] very first fashion show I ever went to. He invited me to his show in the late 1990s in London. I’ve always been a fan of his,” Jackson said, People reported. “True genius, and I’m not using the word loosely at all.”

About halfway through the performance, Jackson appeared onstage to do a rendition of “Scream.” Jackson donned what looked to be a black and white leather top with large shoulder pads, metal accents, and pants. 

Jackson’s outfit resembled her Super Bowl costume with the extra leather fabric placed overtop the pants.

Images of what Christmas appears like around the globe

Glittering pine trees, Santa Clauses and stockings are many people’s ideas about Christmas, but the holiday can look very different all over the world.

From Europe to Asia to the depths of the Antarctic, Christmas is celebrated in nine locations around the world – and in one place around the world.

Croatia

Christmas celebrations in Croatia start early, with some traditions starting in November.

Like other Europeans, Croatians celebrate St. Nicholas’ Day at the beginning of December, when the children leave their shoes and expect St. Nick to leave them sweets and small gifts according to the St. Nicholas Center Christmas resource website.

In some parts of Europe, children believe that Santa Claus will leave chocolates and gifts in their shoes if they have behaved well. Otherwise, Krampus, a monster-like creature, may leave charcoal or dried twigs.

“As a child, I always left a shoe out of the window,” says the native Croat Antonio Zdurich. “Somebody filled it with gifts and candy at night and I woke up and was very happy.”

Many families in Croatia plant wheat on December 13 with the belief that the next year will be successful for them if it grows well, he said.

Sweden

People in Sweden decorate Christmas trees and exchange gifts, much like in other parts of the world, said the Swede Patrik Kerttu.

The Disney special with the title “From All of Us to All of You” is regularly Sweden’s most-watched TV show of the year and only competes with the country’s try-outs for the Eurovision Song Contest.

They also celebrate with Donald Duck. In the past year, more than 4.5 million people – almost half of the Swedish population – looked the 1958 Disney special “From All of Us to All of You”, according to the English-language European news broadcaster The Local. The show has been broadcast there every year since 1959.

Popular foods this time of year include meatballs, ham, smoked or marinated salmon, pickled herring, and a potato and anchovy casserole called Jansson’s temptationsaid Kerttu.

India

While parts of the country celebrate differently, Christian families in India typically combine Western traditions with customs unique to India.

“Christmas is quite an important holiday for my family because it is the only time of the year that most of the family get together,” said Isha Meleth, a Christian and from the southern Indian state of Kerala. “We’re building a nativity scene [nativity scene] in front of the house … on Christmas Eve. “

Two popular Christmas dishes are kheer, a type of sweet milk pudding, and kallappam, a coconut rice pancake that is more common in southern India, Meleth said.

Japan

For most of Japan, Christmas is more of a secular than a religious affair.

Lots of Japanese Celebrate the holiday similar to Valentine’s Day, with couples spending the day together, according to JR Pass, a Japanese rail travel company. It is common for people to go to dinner and run around with their partners looking at the Christmas lights.

One of the most talked about traditions – at least outside of Japan – is the culture fascination with fried chicken for Christmas, often from the US fast food chain KFC.

One theory behind Japan’s custom of eating KFC at Christmas is that for foreigners it was the food of choice for the holiday since there was no turkey. This inspired the company to market it as a Christmas dinner, a representative from KFC Japan told CNBC.

Yuichi Yamazaki | Getty Images

A 1974 marketing campaign called “Kentucky Christmas” launched a practice celebrated today by millions of Japanese, said Tatsuya Noguchi, a representative for KFC Japan.

Pre-orders for food like the “Party Barrel” or the “Christmas Pack” start around seven weeks in advance, according to Noguchi. The restaurant chain also had its highest sales of the year between December 23rd and 25th, he said.

“December 24th is the busiest day of the year – that’s about five to ten times as busy as the annual average,” said Noguchi.

Philippines

Some 92% of the 110 million people in the Philippines are Christian. Christmas is the most important time of the year in the Philippines, and the country is said to celebrate the holiday longer than anywhere else – from September to January.

“Like many Latin American cultures, my family in the Philippines celebrates Nochebuena, which is a big festival on Christmas Eve,” said Siena Klinzing, who is half Filipino. “It’s about getting together with the family, having a big party and sharing gifts.”

For many Filipino families, Christmas is incomplete without lechon, a whole roast pork with a crispy skin.

She said her family was staying up like New Year’s Eve to wish everyone a “Merry Christmas” as soon as the clock strikes midnight, she added.

Another important tradition is Simbang Gabi, which means “mass at night”, where people wake up before sunrise to attend mass for nine days from December 16-24. It is believed that those who have completed all nine days can ask for a blessing. Klinzing said.

United Arab Emirates

Although the UAE’s official state religion is Islam, Christmas is celebrated in some parts of the country.

This is particularly large in the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, where many expats live.

Dubai has light ceremonies from large, elaborately decorated Christmas trees, like this one in the Al-Wasl Dome in the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai.

Shopping centers and hotels are often heavily decorated with Christmas trees stretching over several floors, according to Visit Dubai, the emirate’s official tourism website.

Christmas markets, performances, and special holiday menus in restaurants are also common in December.

Mexico

Christmas in Mexico is marked by large parades with colorful floats and costumes, candy-filled pinatas and Christmas cribs. But one of the most popular customs in the country is Las Posadas, a festival held during the nine days leading up to Christmas.

Costumed dancers take part in a traditional Christmas and New Year parade in Chilpancingo, a town in the Mexican state of Guerrero.

“Every night the people form a singing procession to represent the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem,” said The Mexican food blogger Mely Martinez.

These processions usually culminate at someone’s home, where everyone gathers for a party of food like tamales, Christmas punch, and candy, she said. Other popular Christmas dishes include pozole, sweet deep-fried pastry donuts called bunuelos, and a hot chocolate drink called champurrado, Martinez said.

Kenya

For many in Kenya, Christmas is a time of migration. Cities, including the capital, Nairobi, experience an exodus in December as crowds of people travel to their hometowns and villages to reunite with their families.

Believers from the Legio Maria, a religious movement that arose among the Luo in western Kenya, take part in a Christmas mass near Ugunja, Kenya, on December 25, 2017.

Most churches keep a vigil on Christmas Eve where people sing Christmas carols and hymns for hours, said Shikriti Mandal, who grew up in Kenya.

On Christmas Day, families and friends celebrate a festival that often includes grilled goat or lamb called nyama choma, Mandal said.

Antarctic

The South Pole is currently home to 70 permanent research stations from 29 different countries, according to Oceanwide Expeditions, a tour operator for the Arctic and Antarctic.

In the absence of the usual Christmas hustle and bustle, broadcasters find creative ways to celebrate among colleagues.

“Each of our five Antarctic research stations celebrates Christmas in its own way, depending on the weather,” says Kathleen Maclean, representative of the British Antarctic Survey. Some roast a turkey and eat canned and frozen vegetables while others sing Christmas carols, watch Christmas movies, and play board games, she said.

Despite the celebrations, research continues as “long-term surveillance data remains to be collected,” Maclean said.

International space station

The Christmas spirit is so great that people have found a way to celebrate it 227 nautical miles (420 kilometers) above the earth.

According to the NASA website, astronauts did Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s Eve were celebrated on board the International Space Center for 21 years and have developed some traditions in the process.

Celebrations on the ISS include decorating the station, enjoying plastic bag versions of traditional foods such as Turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and cookies, and filming holiday greetings sent back to earth.

Christmas also comes twice on the space station, as it falls on January 7th on the Russian Orthodox calendar that many Russian astronauts follow.

Comfortable Birthday, Gwyneth Paltrow! 20 Throwback Pictures of the Final ’90s Fashion Icon

I understand why it might sound strange to refer to Gwyneth Paltrow as “underrated”. After all, she’s one of our last real A-listers; Every move by the Goop founder devours daily headlines, regardless of whether it is a Scented vagina candle or say that she believes “Water has feelings.” Paltrow has been playing for so long, even she does Lost track how many Marvel films she starred in at the time.

But with the Goop brand claiming the majority of their attention for the past decade, it’s been a minute since Paltrow sank her teeth into a role that matches her talents. Aside from Marvel and TV projects, her last big movie was in 2015 (before: 2012). Paltrow is known more as a fabulous contactless entrepreneur now than an actress, and she seems to like that completely. Recently called that she will “literally never again” appear in any other film has Paltrow almost retired from the job that made her a star in the ’90s – which, frankly, is our loss.

While Paltrow may not be known for acting in 2021, she’s always been a natural. The daughter of actress Blythe Danner and producer Bruce Paltrow, she made an impact with small roles in Hook and Malice when she barely left high school. Then Paltrow’s high-profile relationship with Brad Pitt made her a tabloid favorite, and her roles quickly began to garner the attention it received: she worked with writers such as David Fincher (Seven) and Paul Thomas Anderson (Hard Eight) later for critical acclaim her breakout role in Emma. Harper’s Bazaar called her “Hollywood’s newest and most promising star” and Vogue made her a cover girl in August 1996. “Gwyneth is known as the actress every designer wants to dress,” Anna Wintour wrote in her letter to the editor in this issue, in which she noted that the actress was “chic, approachable, natural, kind and warm at the same time.”

Paltrow hardly felt like that. “They say I’m definitely a nineties-style lady, but at the time I thought I was just wearing minimalist things with brown lip liner and lots of powder,” she said recently told Fashion. “[My daughter] I’ll sometimes find old pictures of me on Instagram and say ‘You’re iconic, mom’ in a very bizarre way. “

In case she needs further proof, we’ve put together a tribute to some of Paltrow’s most iconic style moments in honor of her 49th birthday.

San Diego photographer accused of taking shoppers’ cash and never offering photographs

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Several women accuse a San Diego photographer of failing to provide promised services despite receiving initial payments.

Lisa is an East County mother of three searching for new photos of her family. She stumbled upon a Facebook post from Lexie Cruz promoting her photography business.

“I hadn’t had pictures of my kids in several years, so I thought it would be a good idea to give my business to someone in the area and young and emerging people,” said Lisa, who refused to use her last name.

The bail was only $ 40, but she said after paying, Cruz’s communication became infrequent. “I asked her to confirm the time and place to make sure we were going to the right park at the right time,” Lisa said. “It took her a week to finally reply and she replied less than 24 hours in advance.”

Cruz never showed up on the day of the photo shoot. “We waited almost an hour,” said Lisa.

Another mom from San Diego, Jennifer, said she booked Cruz for a pregnancy photo shoot last summer. After spending hours getting ready, she said Cruz told her at the last minute that she had a family emergency and couldn’t make it. Cruz tried to reschedule the appointment later that night – something Jennifer couldn’t do.

“I’m not the one who canceled her, she canceled me,” said Jennifer, who also refused to use her last name. “I asked to get my deposit back … and it kind of got dark.”

She assumed she’d lost her $ 20 – not a huge sum – and let go of it. It was only after hearing more stories about Cruz from other mothers that Jennifer decided to take action.

“Back then, in December, I started filing a police report just to do my part,” said Jennifer.

Christine also hired Cruz for a photo shoot as a Mother’s Day present. She paid $ 45 on her bail. Christine, who only wanted to share her first name, said Cruz claimed she mixed up the dates. “I sent her a message at 8 a.m. and said … are we good for tomorrow? We meet in Balboa Park. Is that okay with you? And she didn’t write to me until midnight that she couldn’t, “said Christine.

When Christine said she was going to report her to the San Diego Police Department, Cruz eventually gave her money back.

An online Facebook group where people share their stories has nearly 300 people.

One bride in the group named Meagan told Team 10 that she signed a contract with Cruz for their wedding in North Carolina in August. Meagan said she paid $ 1,000 through a banking app and Cruz was due to be shooting engagement photos in North Carolina on May 29. After hearing nothing from her for 11 days and receiving no confirmation that Cruz had ever bought a plane ticket to North Carolina, she asked for her money back. Cruz said their deposits are non-refundable.

Meagan said she had to hire another photographer and didn’t get any money back.

Cruz sent Team 10 a video with her explanation. In the 14-minute video, she said, “Every story has two sides.”

Cruz claimed that people were spreading false information about her.

“I have families that I’ve worked with. I did photo shoots, ”said Cruz. “Yes, there have been cancellations, no deposit was refunded and I take responsibility for what I did. But I also can’t say that I’ve done a lot of things that people say I am. “

Cruz told Team 10 they had a lawyer but wouldn’t give a name. Cruz doesn’t name specific customers in her video, but she said she wanted to be transparent.

“The last thing I want to do is tell mothers and brides that I’m stealing their money and running,” said Cruz.

Cruz wouldn’t do a one-on-one interview with Team 10. She was not charged with any crimes by the San Diego Police Department. A San Diego police spokesman confirmed that the “case is still active and is being investigated by detectives.”

The Better Business Bureau recommends anyone hiring a photographer for references, having a contract with all the details, and paying by credit card if possible. The BBB also does not recommend paying the entire fee in advance.

Team 10 women interviewed said they had learned a valuable lesson working with Cruz.

“Notice some of the red flags because she originally sent me a link to every cash app available,” Lisa said.

“Be sure to do your due diligence to review someone’s business,” added Jennifer. “Everyone wants a lot, but sometimes you get what you pay for.”

Heavy rains and floods have wreaked havoc in parts of Western Europe, and rescue workers are currently trying to prevent further damage.

The death toll rose to over 150 on Saturday, according to media reports, with that number expected to rise as the tides recede.

Parts of Switzerland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands are affected, but the worst floods are reported to be in Germany and Belgium.

The Rhineland-Palatinate district of Ahrweiler is one of the most severely affected areas, along with North Rhine-Westphalia, the most populous federal state.

The World Meteorological Organization announced on Friday that in some parts of Western Europe, rain fell for up to two months in just two days.

WhatsApp is a step nearer to bringing Snapchat-style disappearing images and movies to iPhones

The new update, titled “Watch Once”, will be available to all iOS beta users.

  • WhatsApp made disappearing photos and videos available to iOS beta testers on Friday.
  • View Once allows users to send photos and videos that disappear from chats after a single view.

  • Check out Insider’s business page for more stories.

WhatsApp is one step closer to bringing disappearing photos and videos to iPhones now that functionality is rolled out to beta testers.

The new feature called View Once was released for iOS beta testers on Friday. WABetaInfo reported. It comes after a rollout for Android beta testers in June.

WhatsApp and Instagram are owned by Facebook. View Once continues Facebook’s push to mirror popular mirror features Snapchat and resembles one already found Instagram.

Aaccording to WABetaInfoView once does not prevent recipients from taking screenshots of photos and videos that have disappeared, and it does not notify senders when screenshots are taken.

View Once users can see when their content has been viewed by looking for an “open” message WABetaInfo. Further details, e.g. For example, to know who opened your photo or video, see Message Information.

WhatsApp already allows users to send messages that are automatically deleted after seven days.
