Last night was the premiere of For Colored Girls, the Tyler Perry film based on the ground-breaking play. This is how Ms. Janet Jackson showed up – in this strange red and black pantsuit number that I have mixed feelings about. If I could see this as just the pants and the weird wrap top, I think I would have loved it. But with the added jacket and the strange skirt… it’s just too much. BUT – Janet still kind of rocks it. Hmpf. Anyway, Janet’s date last night was not her Qatari boyfriend Wissam al Mana! She took her nephew instead, although Janet did confirm that she and Wissam are still together, though not engaged:
Ignore the engagement rumors. Janet Jackson tells UsMagazine.com she isn’t getting hitched.
Asked Monday at the NYC premiere of her new drama, For Colored Girls, if her billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana popped the question, she laughed.
“No, no, no,” she told Us. “I’m not engaged.”
The two are heating up, however.
Since meeting last December at an event in the Middle East, they’ve been spotted a lot together lately.
The New York Post reports he even “whisked Janet off for a romantic break in Sardinia this summer and friends credit him with helping her cope with the death of her brother Michael.”

Even if they were engaged, I doubt we would know about it. Janet plays everything so tight, bless her heart. And while I don’t love the outfit, I will say that Janet is looking really good lately – I like her transition to dramatic actress, and her association with Tyler Perry. They seem to be genuinely tight, and this may be Janet’s year for an Oscar nomination. You never know.
