Janet Jackson has done it again. After gaining weight a few years ago, Janet shed all of her weight and then some, crediting her latest yo-yo weight loss to the fine folks over at Nutri-System.

Janet Jackson has never been able to avoid having a well-publicized history of struggles with her weight. Since we watched her as a child star from an early age, everything from her chubby stages to her Velvet Rope-era body became fodder for discussion, graced magazine covers, and inspired more women belly and nipple rings than most women want to admit.

Now she’s back at it but with a long-term goal in sight …

“I’m not viewing this as a diet,” she told USA TODAY’s Nanci Hellmich at the time. “I’m not putting a number on it. I don’t look at the scale. I’m going about it in a different way this time.” She doesn’t need to lose “a great amount,” she said, adding that she would stop “when I feel good about it.”

Check out the ad that’s making its rounds around primetime television this week:

  1. What a weird campaign. Does anyone notice that she said “when I feel good about it”. I don’t know what to do with this statement? Begs for an investigation, but maybe I’m tripping

  2. Yes, you are. All she’s saying is that she’s going to lose until she’s comfortable; that of which she is already. It’s not weird at all, she even speaks about that in her book, and it’s far from the first time she’s said that she doesn’t keep track of how much she loses. She hasn’t kept track of it since 2006 when she lost 60 pounds after a failed movie project. Investigation? That’s really not called for. At all.

  3. Why is Janet doing this? She is already a bigger star than J-Hud and this looks like a lame rip-off of J-Hud’s WW campaign simply for money and publicity. I do not believe Janet eats pre-packaged garbage. She probably has a personal chef. And who in their right mind believes you can eat as much as you want of “the foods you love” and lose weight. It is so sad to me that people make money off of our real challenges losing weight when we are bombarded with unhealthy foods and a sedentary lifestyle. Janet really needs to stop hustling gimmicks.

  4. She looks great but what happened to looking great as a result of eating right and exercising?……o wait, u can’t ackage and sell that.
