Tyler was a major source of support when Michael died

I am going to go on the record and say that Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too?” is the best movie I have ever seen. Tyler Perry’s dramedy about the dynamics of African American marriage, in a time where you see more and more single people of color, takes brilliance to a new level. In fact, Janet Jackson, who turns out a stellar performance as the psychiatrist Patricia in the film, told People Magazine that Tyler was a major source of support when her brother Michael left this earth last June. Said Janet: “Tyler actually stopped production and was there for me. He was constantly calling me, making sure that there wasn’t anything that I needed or my family needed. He is such a sweetheart, so giving and loving.” Janet added that Tyler asked her if she wanted to take a few weeks off, but in the end she returned to the Bahamas set the day after Michael’s funeral.


Since we are chatting about Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too?,” Jermaine Dupri announced a deal with Tyler Perry for the release of the soundtrack for the movie, which opens April 2. The first single from the soundtrack of the highly anticipated sequel to Perry’s 2007 hit film “Why Did I Get Married,” entitled “Nothing” is performed and written by the film’s star, Janet Jackson, and was co-produced by Bryan Michael Cox. It will be available on iTunes on Tuesday, March 30. J.D., who thinks that music lovers will gravitate toward “Nothing” says: “You haven’t heard Janet sound like this in a long time and I think the song is perfect for the movie. It’s a really good record.”


Whitney Houston’s rep is slamming reports that the singer is back on drugs and about to enter a rehab facility. “Whitney is not headed to rehab,” her lawyer Marty Singer, told a source. “She is headed to Paris, where she will be continuing her world tour.” The National Enquirer recently published a cover story claiming that the 46 year-old had suffered a “horrifying backstage collapse” while in town, but Singer calls the tale “ridiculous,” saying “it did not happen.”


German magazine Neon, which recently printed that Beyonce and Jay-Z have a marriage contract, is eating its words. “We sincerely apologize to Ms. Knowles and her management for all personal inconveniece that may have arisen due to the publication of this interview,” the big bosses of the magazine stated in a formal apology. The writer of the article has been fired.


In case you were wondering when Mariah Carey’s “Angels Advocate” album would exclusively drop in Target, the project has been scrapped. Instead, fans can expect Mimi to push forward with a brand new studio effort. According to, her manager, Chris Lighty, promises “it won’t go to waste” and two singles wil be released from the shelved disc. A source added Mariah will “possibly do another studio album or Christmas album.”
