Janet Jackson lost 20 pounds for her new Qatari boy-toy

Janet Jackson has a new, younger boyfriend! His name is Wissam Al Mana, and he’s Qatari, and he’s almost a decade younger than Janet. According to the Enquirer, they’ve been dating for about seven months, although various sites only started reporting the rumor back in May and June, so who knows? Janet and Wissam apparently went on vacation together in June – The Daily Mail had the photos here. Wissam is pretty cute, actually. He’s tall! Anyway, Miss Janet is in love, apparently, and so she’s taking better care of her body, losing weight and even thinking about having a baby with Wissam:

Falling in love with a younger man has Janet Jackson shedding the pounds and planning for motherhood!

Janet, 44, has fallen head over heels for a wealthy Qatar businessman Wissam Al Mana, 35, whome she met when he hired her for a private gig in the Middle East, say sources.

“Wissam and Janet have been dating since late last year,” revealed a source close to Janet. “He is extremely good to her, buying her jewelry, expensive designer clothes, taking her to exotic places, and filling their room with candles and white roses wherever they go. And spending time with a younger man who is handsome and fit has Janet paying closer attention to her diet. As a result, she’s lost 20 pounds in the last six months!”

Janet’s weight has been yo-yoing between 120 and 180 pounds for years, but now she’s started a new regimen of diet and exercise, cutting carbs, fast food, desserts and more from her diet, and sticking with fish, grilled chicken and salads.

Janet and Wissam have been inseparable since Christmas, continued the source, enjoying romantic getaways in London, Paris, and most recently, Sardinia.

Janet has never been ready for children – until now, says the source.

“The fact that Janet is in super shape and has been working out daily, etc, means her body is pregnancy-ready.” And since Michael’s death last year, Janet has been spending more time with her niece and nephews: “Janet adores them, and now she’s had the opportunity to see what it would be like to have kids of her own. She’s finally ready, and a younger man like Wissam would make the perfect father. All she needs now is a proposal.”

Yes, the tabloids don’t know how to report anything without making it sound like every woman is stuck in the 1950s, just waiting for the ring and the baby to fulfill all of our little girlish dreams. I think we should give Janet a little more credit than this, honestly. She’s one of the most successful pop artists of all time, she’s got a solid career as an actress, and she’s already been married before, so why do we think that she will only be fulfilled by the ring and the baby? Eh. But good for her for taking better care of herself. Wissam sounds like a nice guy.

    Co-sign on how they report about celebrity relationships, particularly concerning women over 40.

    Like she just sits on her ass waiting for her knight in shining armor with the magical sperm. So antiquated and basic. Can’t any of these writers come up with an original way to report these “stories”?

  2. RHONYC says:

    i’ve loved my janet since *doing the shoulder dance* “what have you done for me lately?, ooooo-ohhhh, yeah!”…

    but i’ve gotta say…if she is gonna insist on performing in these outfits…she’s gotta lose like 20 more. not for nothing, but she’s the height of an olsen twin which means she should keep it around a buck o’ 5 (105 lbs) at least.

    hey. not throwin’ grease but madonna still prances in her skivvies but she keeps her weight down for the job. gristle or no.

    jussayin.

    luv u miz jackson (if u nasty!) :-)

  3. Hautie says:

    I really do love her hair. She has the perfect shaped face to wear it all sassy and short.

  4. A.K.A. says:

    She sure is Michael’s sister, especially in the first pic :)

  5. Ashdin says:

    I was still thinking she and Jermaine were a couple.. :s :s :s

  6. Crash2GO2 says:

    I’m leary of men who walk in front of the women…

  7. Len says:

    and she’ll gain them right back in a few months.

  8. Cinderella says:

    I’ve always been a fan of Janet, but that shade of foundation in the first pic is all wrong. And what has she done to her cheekbones?

  9. Meanchick says:

    Janet’s body cannot support ‘a buck-o five.” Whomever came up with that height-weight proportionate crap was obviously a man! Women who have round hips, butts and thighs are killing themselves trying to be the weight on some damn height/weight chart.Janet looks great for her age or ANY age!

  10. Iggles says:

    44 is a bit old for having bio kids. You never know, but I don’t think it’s likely.

    Anyway, I wish Janet the best! She’s amazing. Love her!

  11. RHONYC says:

    i just like sayin’ that phrase “a buck-o five”…lol.

    remember in team america, world police?

    ‘freedom cost a buck-o-five’ lmao :-)

  12. Lem says:

    i adore Ms. Jackson. I can recognize she has some issues. I wish despite her issues she could find and hold some middle ground. Yoyo-ing is worse for you than staying fat or staying thin. Please, Janet, it really doesn’t need to be all or nothing

  13. Lem says:

    that womans face/expression in the background. PRICELESS

  14. Stephy2485 says:

    That was a nice comment from a “mean chick” haha.
    I totes agree though! Janet looks amaaaaaazing. I would kill a man for her bod. It’s fabulous.

    Sexy/attractive/healthy/desirable etc isn’t determined by some weight chart/bmi chart.

  15. Bec says:

    She has traded way up from Jermaine Dupre. Never understood why she was with him in the first place.

  16. MaiGirl says:

    Just another big ups for the comment on tabloid reporting, Kaiser. Clearly, these women are career driven and fulfilled by their lives, or they wouldn’t be single and child-free!

  17. Jeri says:

    Too much filler in the cheeks.

  18. Richie says:

    WhoaA Qatari? am sure pretty loaded guy & highly influential too! All the best janet!

  19. Miya says:

    Wish her the best in life!! I hope everything works out. LOVE U JANET <3

  20. Diva says:

    God, she looks like Michael in that first pic. Wow.

    I love posts on Janet Jackson cos my name is Janet and I get to read lots of I <3 Janet’s! hehe

  21. canadianchick says:

  22. Zarria says:
