January 31, 1998 - 17 years ago today: Janet Jackson began a two week run atop the Billboard Hot 100 with "Together Again", the second single released from the brilliant and critically acclaimed #1 album, 'The Velvet Rope'. This was also her 32nd Hot 100 single - and Janet would ultimately chart 42 singles on the Hot 100.
Janet was Billboard's Hot 100 artist of year in 1990 and 1993 as well as the second most successful recording artist of the 1990's --- behind only Mariah Carey.
"Together Again" is a song by American recording artist Janet Jackson from her sixth studio album, The Velvet Rope (1997). It was written and produced by Jackson, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, with additional writing by Jackson's then-husband, René Elizondo, Jr. It was released as the second single from the album on December 2, 1997, through Virgin Records. Originally written as a ballad, the track was rearranged as a dance and house song. Jackson was reportedly inspired to write the song after a friend who succumbed to AIDS, as well as a piece of fan mail she received from a young boy in England who had lost his father.
The SATURDAY SLINGBACK goes to the ICON of POP!!
In an EERIE similarity Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston, was found UNRESPONSIVE in a bathtub this morning in Atlanta!
Brown's husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her in the tub in the morning and started CPR, the Roswell Police Department said in a statement. Police and rescue personnel arrived at the home at 10:25 a.m. and performed "life-saving measures" before Brown, 21, was brought to the nearby North Fulton Hospital.
The incident remains under investigation, police said. It is UNCLEAR how BKB ended up unresponsive, but she was revived and taken to an Atlanta hospital.
It comes less than two weeks before the third anniversary of Houston's death. The Grammy-winning singer was found submerged in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills, California, hotel on Feb. 11, 2012. She was later pronounced dead. Brown is also the daughter of R&B singer Bobby Brown.
When more developments arise we will UPDATE you. Let's PRAY for BKB.

It's ONLY two days until Super Bowl XLIX! Katy Perry MET THE PRESS in Phoenix to dish on her HALFTIME SHOw.
In between the burning questions about her costumes, her hair and the planned choreography of her halftime show at Super Bowl XLIX, pop mega-icon Katy Perry delivered the line of the week when asked if she had her single-girl's eye on a particular player in Sunday's game at University of Phoenix Stadium.
"I'm just here so I don't get fined," Perry said, channeling the infamous line from Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch at Super Bowl Media Day.
Perry spent about 20 minutes discussing her upcoming performance immediately after national anthem singer Idina Menzel fielded questions. Perry was joined at one point on stage by her dog, Butters, and she reminded everyone that she spent her kindergarten and first grade years at Paradise Valley Christian School, so "I feel like this is somewhat of hometown turf," she said. "I feel very comfortable here."
SHE WAS ASKED ABOUT THE SHOW AND SURPRISE GUESTS.... MORE...

Shortly after, Biebs issues an 'apology' of sorts and an emotional PLEA to his fans for 'FORGIVENESS' for his past actions.
Most of 2014 Biebs has been in and out of the news for one thing or another and surprisingly it wasn't for the music. Run-ins with the cops, paparazzi, and just down right BAD BEHAVIOR! In this short VIDEO, it appears that Justin is seeking REDEMPTION and has seen the light of sorts. Check it out.

Funny or nah. During a recent game, Blake Griffin gets 'cheeky' with a trainer who was icing down his knee. Blake was seen playfully pulling the trainer's head near his groin! And of course the exchange was caught on tv.
The sportscaster was left grasping for words at the awkward moment.
"No, don't do that!" said TNT sportscaster Kevin Harlan, left hanging on the broadcast with nothing but a tight shot of locker room humor to work with.
Obviously, Griffin was enjoying himself thoroughly on the bench with a big lead and the game well in hand.
New music from Rihanna!
The new duet, titled “FourFiveSeconds,” has now premiered online for everyone who isn’t a radio programmer.

I just want to adore you
Worship the ground you walk on
From today to eternity
