Janet Jackson: Showing curves at Cannes
CAP D’ANTIBES, France -- Janet Jackson may have joined the ranks of diet plan celebrity spokeswomen Jennifer Hudson and Mariah Carey, but she insists there’s ab solutely no competition among the slimmed-down singers.
The 46-year-old be came a spokesperson for NutriSystem in December and credits the diet company for helping her lose weight.
"You know I think it’s great that all the girls Š can stand up and try to help as many people as possible. That’s really what it’s about," said Jackson in a plunging neckline Pucci gown at amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS gala Thursday in Cap D’Antibes, France.
"I took off all that extra stuff I really didn’t need and I feel really good," she said.
Carey became the spokesperson for Jenny Craig after dropping 30 pounds with their plan and a toned Hudson is seen singing the praises of Weight watchers in the company’s commercials.
But it wasn’t all glitz and glam for Jackson. The recent loss of industry legends Donna Sum mer and Robin Gibb still weighed heavily on her mind.
"They’ve brought so much joy to this world," said Jackson on the red carpet.
Right now Jackson is busy working on new music, which she says is still in the "beginning stages."
"Everything I’ve done, it’s always been different here or there, from one album to the next, a mixture of stuff. So we’ll see," she said.
