Janet rocks MTV Michael Jackson Tribute
After dancers performed several classic MJ routines while some of his most groundbreaking videos showed on screen, Janet literally broke onto the stage, smashing through glass to command the stage and perform their duet "Scream".
Janet sang live with the recording of her brother and commanded the stage with powerful energy and emotion in an outfit inspired by rhinestones and even a Janet-ized MJ glove.
A particularly stunning moment took place when Janet performed the dance duet sequence from the "Scream" video alongside a massive projection of Michael, in sync, with impeccable timing.
The full tribute video performance has been pulled by MTV from YouTube, but you can still see Janet's amazing tribute to MJ in this video shot by a fan:
After the show: Janet Releases "Make Me" as gift to fans
A couple of hours after the VMA's Janet posted the following update to her Twitter, Facebook & MySpace pages:
"I hope u guys enjoyed us tonight.It was very special for me n I have a very special gift for all of u. Thank u for ur endless love n support!"The gift turned out to be the Web Release of Janet's new song "Make Me".
Congratulations on a very special night Janet.

Janet's New Website & Twitter launched this week!
This week Janet Jackson twittered her first tweets, and launched her new website. It's so great to hear from Janet and read that she is getting into some new projects. I've missed how she keeps her fans on the edge of our seats when she is entering a new era. We've hurt with her, and we've missed her.
Just hours after Janet's first tweet on Monday, her 3,000 followers who had followed just in case it was official, exploded to over 18,000. It was so rapid growth that twittercounter couldn't graph it, and if you refreshed the page every second or so on Monday night, you would see the total going up by at least 20 each time for a while there. It was a pretty awesome thing to witness.
Now as of 10pm Thursday, she has over 33,000 followers and Janet's twitter followers are continuing to grow.
I'm not surprised and I'm excited and relieved to see her back at work and back in touch with her fans again. I wish her every success with her upcoming book and album (I can't wait for the new album!) and I look forward to seeing Why Did I Get Married Too.
One of the great things about Janet's new website, other than it containing ALL of her videos with some neat flash navigation, is a descriptive biography which includes some of the charities and causes Janet supports.

Facebook's First Big Chain Letter?!
But I couldn't wait to share what I encountered last night, through to this afternoon (and I bet it's not over).
A family member who I trust, sent me the following message using facebook's messaging system. I could also see that they had sent it to many of their friends in a mass message.
" Attention all Facebook members.
Facebook is recently becoming very overpopulated,
There have been many members complaining that Facebook
is becoming very slow.Record shows that the reason is
that there are to many non-active Facebook members
And on the other side too many new Facebook members.
We will be sending this messages around to see if the
Members are active or not,If you're active please send
to 15 other users using Copy+Paste to show that you are active
Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks,
The user will be deleted without hesitation to create more space,
If Facebook is still overpopulated we kindly ask for donations but until then send this message to all your friends and make sure you send
this message to show me that your active and not deleted.
Founder of Facebook
Mark Zuckerber "
I received it 4 more times before I started receiving responses questioning the authenticity of the message. And they keep coming. It made me chuckle, and it's the first chain letter on facebook I've ever been sent. It reminds me of the first time I received crazy emails when I first started using the web.
Here a comment I enjoyed from the discussion:
"Attention all Facebook members.
Do you really think that they can't tell if your account has been used? And that their method of checking would be to ask people to forward a message? Do you really think that an official mailout would have misspelt "you're", or used so much informal language?
Every day, spam wastes millions of megabits per second all over the internet.
Please, think of the megabits. Think before forwarding.
Not A Founder Of Facebook"
PS: I am not passing the letter on. Lulz. What's next?
