An icon, a trendsetter, a businessperson, a multi-gifted artist: songwriter/producer/singer/actor/dancer. Janet burst onto the scene with her record setting album, "Control." Today she possesses an unprecedented list of achievements, and remains in the forefront of her craft, a true inspiration. As an artist, Janet excites, enlightens, leads, and embraces her fans with insights into life's meaning and our deepest feelings. Janet is ranked as one of the top ten best-selling artists in the history of contemporary music. Her musical style, choreography, lyrical exploration, and self awareness has made her one of the top artists of our time as well as a leading influence on the upcoming stars of tomorrow.

Through words and actions, she has set an example of generosity, of empowerment, of tolerance, and helped to lead efforts addressing some of society's greatest challenges. Born Janet Damita Jo Jackson in Gary, Indiana, she has accumulated the success and the stature to be addressed by just her first name, Janet.

Janet began her career at the young age of seven when she appeared at the MGM in Las Vegas with her family in 1973. This debut and her appearances beginning at the age of nine on her family’s variety show, The Jacksons, lead her to starring and supporting roles on hit sitcoms such as "Good Times," "Diff’rent Strokes" and "Fame."

At fourteen she signed her first recording deal and launched the career that would change the history and direction of performance art and music. Her first two albums, "Janet Jackson" and "Dream Street" were just the beginning. Placing acting on the back burner Janet was able to focus on her passion for music. It wasn’t until her third album, "Control" (1986) that she began to break records and set standards.

"Control" brought Janet into the collaborative mix of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis: a relationship that created a musical fusion of pop, r&b, soul, dance, jazz, rock and rap that continues today. The new feisty sound of Janet brought accolades and praise that had not been seen before and cemented her in music history. "Control" won four American Music Awards out of twelve nominations - a record that she still holds - and was nominated for an Album of the Year Grammy. "Control" was influential in expanding and developing the art of music video performance.

Her fourth album "Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814" took a new look at musical integrity and the responsibilities an artist has to the audience. “I just want my music and my dance to catch the audience’s attention, and to hold it long enough for them to listen to the lyrics and what we’re saying,” said Janet of the new direction. "Rhythm Nation 1814" was a socially conscious driven album that focused on the changes or lack there of occurring in society. The album’s lyrical content targeted injustice, illiteracy, crime, drugs, and racial intolerance, all of which was done to a slamming beat that kept audiences intrigued and dancing. Janet Jackson’s "Rhythm Nation 1814" is the only album ever to launch number one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 in three separate calendar years “Rhythm Nation” (1989), “Miss You Much,” (1989) “Escapade” (1990), “Black Cat” (1990), and “Love will Never Do (Without You)” (1991). It also brought Janet her first Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video for “Rhythm Nation 1814.”

In 1993 Janet released her fifth album, "janet." which immediately shot to number one and reinvented Janet Jackson into Janet (period). "Control" was about growing up, "Rhythm Nation 1814" looked at social responsibility and "janet." unleashed a sexual being with adult lyrics and swinging beats. The album became notorious and will forever hold a place in history for it’s Rolling Stone cover shot of a topless Janet. "janet." brought her a second Grammy Award for the single, “That’s the Way Love Goes” and her first Golden Globe and Academy Award Nomination for the ballad, “Again” which was featured in the film, "Poetic Justice." "Poetic Justice" re-launched Janet’s foray into acting and placed her in her first feature film role. She starred opposite Regina King and hip hop sensation Tupac Shakur.

Celebrating ten years following the release of her ground-breaking album, "Control," "Design of a Decade" featured hits from "Control," "Rhythm Nation 1814," "janet.," and two previously unreleased songs, "Runaway" and "Twenty Foreplay."

Janet followed with "The Velvet Rope," which continued her emotional exploration through music. Lyrically raw and filled with internal reflection, the album is considered to be Janet’s most introspective work that illustrates the ins and outs of her private thoughts, dreams and desires.

In the box office smash, "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps," Janet made her second feature film appearance as Denise Gaines, opposite Academy Award Nominee Eddie Murphy. "Nutty Professor II" became her second film to open at number one at the box office. Janet also co-wrote and performed the song, "Doesn't Really Matter," the lead single from the film, which entered the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 and became her first number one of the new century. The song was featured in her seventh album “All for You,” which came out the following year and for which Janet received another Grammy for Best Dance Recording.

A chameleon of performance Janet is widely known and admired for award winning music videos. Janet is the only artist having Grammy nominations spanning the Dance, Pop, Rap, Rock, and R&B categories. She has accumulated 5 Grammy’s, multiple MTV Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and Soul Train Music Awards to name a few. A highly regarded performer, her concerts are stunning shows that stimulate the mind, eyes, and the soul. Intense choreography skilled to perfection has been synonymous with Janet.

In 2001, MTV presented Janet with the inaugural MTV ICON Award solidifying her accomplishments and affect on pop culture. Musical artists such as Destiny’s Child, NSYNC, Outkast, Usher and Pink were enlisted to recreate the music videos and performances of her classic hits in honor of her work, influence and overall impact in the arena of music. The title of ICON was and continues to be hers.

Always, self-examining and open, Janet throws herself into every album. Her eighth studio album "Damita Jo" explored the extremes of sexuality. Janet followed up with "20 Y.O." which reunited her with long time collaborators Jam/Lewis and brought in producer Jermaine Dupri to add an extra edge to the album. "20 Y.O." celebrated her 20 years in the music industry and referenced back to the music that was created on "Control," "Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814," and "janet."

In Janet’s third feature film, "Why Did I Get Married?," she starred opposite Tyler Perry. Janet received an Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a feature motion picture. The film was yet another number one opener at the box office. Shortly after the films release, she put out her tenth studio album "Discipline," which reflected upon her personal battle with “discipline.” As one of the defining aspects of her career, Janet addresses the word, the meaning, and it’s affect on her as an artist and a person.

Janet's album, "Discipline," again served as a forum for Janet to reveal more about herself. "The album expresses what I need to express at this moment of my life,” she said. “It says that discipline, rather than being a problem, can bring pleasure. Discipline is a key to freedom. Discipline allows me—allows all of us—to focus. And the focus must be on thoughts and feelings that nourish our physical and spiritual lives."

Janet supported the "Discipline" album with her fifth concert tour—the "Rock Witchu Tour." Described as a "high-voltage performance," Janet proved again her status as the consummate performer, providing fans with an extravaganza featuring all of her hits, non-stop choreography and a cutting-edge production.

Janet released her "Number Ones" album, her second greatest hits compilation, in 2009. The double-disc album featured Janet's 34 number one hit singles, spanning various music charts across North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Africa. Additionally, the "Number Ones" album included Janet's new single, "Make Me," which became her 34th number one single and nineteenth number one hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart.

In 2010, JANET honored her brother Michael's legacy and supported the people of Haiti by joining over 80 artists who collaborated to record "We Are the World 25 for Haiti," the classic 1985 charity anthem re-imagined by Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones to support the earthquake relief efforts. "We Are The World 25 For Haiti" premiered during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games Opening Ceremony and is now an international #1 download on iTunes. Proceeds from the charity single continue to support the healing and rebuilding of Haiti.

Janet continues to focus on speaking out and giving back. Several of her tours have raised money for charities such as the Cities in Schools, and America's Promise. She has supported the Watts Willowbrook Boys & Girls Club of America, the Starlight Foundation, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, A Place Called Home providing after school programs in South Central LA, the American Foundation for AIDS Research, S.O.S. Children's Villages in South Africa, Cartier's Love Bracelet Program benefiting OCNA and sponsored an Airlift of Food and Medical supplies to famine-stricken Rwanda. Janet established the Rhythm Nation Scholarship with the UNCF and has assisted countless students striving to meet their educational goals. Most recently, Janet chaired amfAR's gala charity event in Milan that raised more than a million dollars for AIDS research. "This battle needs all of us to be brave warriors," Janet said during the dinner and dance organized by the Foundation for AIDS Research. Janet also traveled recently to Abu Dhabi to support the fresh2o charity at the star studded F1 Grand Prix Ball. Money raised at the event enables provision of clean water for drinking and sanitation purposes globally.

She has been honored with many Humanitarian Awards due to her intense dedication to helping others. Recent honors, reflecting the range of her involvement in charitable and social causes, include the 2008 Humanitarian of the Year award from the Lisa Lopes Foundation, the 2008 Vanguard Award from GLAAD, and the 2004 Touching a Life Humanitarian and Philanthropic Award from the NBA. Janet's efforts have also been recognized by AIDS Project LA, the Congress for Racial Equality, and by the NAACP with their Chairman's Award.

Early next year, Janet will publish, “True You,” her first book, providing an intimate look at her life and how she has dealt with issues of self-esteem. Janet will reveal aspects not known before about her uniquely successful career not only in music but in television and motion pictures.

2010 saw Janet joining Tyler Perry once again for her fourth feature motion picture, "Why Did I Get Married Too?," offering a compelling performance in the highly anticipated sequel. Janet also co-wrote and performed the film's theme song, "Nothing." Her performance of the song on the season finale of “American Idol” topped the chart on iTunes, resulting in her 35th number one.
Janet then began filming, Mr. Perry’s motion picture adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s Obie Award-winning play, “For Colored Girls,” for which Janet has received critical acclaim. She then headlined the opening night of the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans and followed this performance with a concert at Radio City Music Hall benefiting autism.

Summarizing her career and her incredibly raw albums, Janet has said, “Here I am. I’m coming on. Musically, I have it. You want it. And I’m giving it to you.” Continuing her growth as an artist and as a person Janet intriguingly states, “I’m proud to have stayed in the game and survived. And I’m proud that I’ve remained true to myself. But if you go back and listen to the music, you’ll hear how that self is always changing.”^ ^;...

Company Overview
"Sharon Cuneta
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sharon Cuneta-Pangilinan, better known as Sharon Cuneta, is a multi-awarded Filipino singer, actress and TV host dubbed the Megastar of Philippine Entertainment, and fondly called "Mega" by fans and people from the entertainment industry.[1][2][3] Her success in the movies (53 sta

rring roles), television (10 shows) and recording (40 albums ) make her possibly the greatest Filipino entertainer of all time.[4][5] Her popularity has translated well into the field of advertising, where she is the highest paid and most effective Filipino celebrity endorser.[2][6] Cuneta's long list of endoresements run the gamut from fastfood chain to bank, from make-up line to electronics, from ice cream to tele-communication company.[7][8][9]
On November 22, 2011, following months of speculations, Sharon’s big move to TV5 was made official by signing a staggering 1 Billion contract with the Kapatid Network – the highest ever paid to a Filipino artist. She parted ways with ABS-CBN, her home network of 24 years, on a cordial note.[10] Her daily afternoon talk show Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid premiered on May 14, 2012 and has been hailed as an engaging program that aims to entertain and to inspire. The show provides the perfect platform for Sharon to be in touch with her audience, reaffirming her stature as a well-loved icon who is now more accessible to fans and viewers alike.[11][12][13].

Early life

(born January 6, 1966) Her mother, Elaine Gamboa, hails from Santa Ana, Pampanga while her father is a former Mayor Cuneta of Pasay. She is half-Tagalog on her paternal side and one-fourth Kapampangan and one-fourth Spanish-American on her maternal side.[14]
Cuneta grew up surrounded by music, listening to her dad's collection of 45s, 78s and 331⁄3s. Her aunt is '60s Shingaling Sweetheart Helen Gamboa. Cuneta during her early years made her first TV appearance in Kuya Ike Lozada's show, in the Bulilit portion, where she mimicked her Tita Helen's songs. Cuneta was just as young when she appeared in her first movie, the Rosanna Ortiz-George Estregan starrer Lovers for Hire. She played one of Roderick Paulate's playmates.
She attended International School Manila (Makati Campus), Boston University (USA) and the University of the Philippines Open University.

After hearing of her success, the mayor attended the concert and awarded Cuneta with an Honorary Key to the City of Los Angeles.
She sang a duet in the 2001 with Hong Kong star Andy Lau, with whom she sang "In Your Eyes" composed by Jim Brickman.

Personal life

Sharon Cuneta publicly married Gabby Concepcion in 1984, which was later annulled due to irreconcilable differences.

Is Gretchen Barretto really The Filipino's friend?

Dear Filipino,
I just want to say that I am really enjoying reading some of your posts and most of the time I am laughing my ass off. But are you really friends with Gretchen Barreto? Dannnnggg!
Keep up your good work, my friend!
Ray G.
Dear Ray,
Thanks for the luv, kaibigan! Thanks for the luv!
Now, the topic of your question -- i.e., my friendship with famous Philippine actress Gretchen Barretto -- is a profound and complicated one. So in order to answer it, I first broke it down into its logical components: whether we can be friends, whether she's qualified to be my friend, whether we chose to be friends, and whether we can remain friends.
Then, I sought the wise counsel of the learned from across the globe and throughout human history. I looked at the "rules" they have laid down on the issue and I "applied" it to myself vis-a-vis my friendship with Gretchen -- the friendship which you now question.
So let's look at these rules one by one.
First Rule: The wise and great Chinese philosopher Confucius (551-479 BC) advised us:
"Have no friends not equal to yourself."
Application of the Rule: According to my mother, I'm really, really good-looking. People, of course, say Gretchen is very, very beautiful. In my book, my mother's opinion on this issue carries the same weight as all others.' So I guess, it's fair to say that Gretchen is my equal, right? In other words, she can be my friend.
Second Rule: For his part, the American poet, essayist and leading figure of the Transcendentalist movement, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), opined:
"A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of Nature."
Application of the Rule: With Gretchen, I reckon we can take the Emersonian advice literally, don't you think? I mean, hey, she's Nature's beautiful creation, right? If so, then she qualifies to be my friend.
Third Rule: Then, the French poet extraordinaire, Jacques Delille (1738-1813), commanded us:
"Fate chooses your relations, you choose your friends."
Application of the Rule: Now, I think this mandate is the hidden genius behind the idea of Facebook which the founder, Mark Zuckerberg, who is single and is only 26, has impressively figured out early on in his life. I mean, it's really brilliant because what Delille is saying is this: I may have no say who gets to be my mother-in-law, but I get to choose who I want as my friends. I chose Gretchen so I requested to be her friend on Facebook; irresistibly drawn to my online charm, she accepted. Ergo: we're friends because we chose to be friends.
Fourth Rule: Here's the tough part: The British poet and leading figure in Romanticism, the great Lord Byron (1788-1824), required thusly:
"Friendship is love without his wings."
Application of the Rule: Like Aristotle before him, Lord Byron was really comparing friendship with romantic love when he said that. And what he really meant is this: That while friendship is usually between people of the same sex, a friendly relationship between a man and a woman is also fine. However, if one party has unrequited sexual feelings towards the other, it can cause the withdrawal of the desired party from the relationship, and friendship will therefore disintegrate because of that.
What this means is that as long as Gretchen does not fall in love or exhibit any sort of carnal desire towards yours truly, we can remain friends; if she does, I'm out. In other words, the burden really is on her.
Now, admittedly, it's going to be a heavy burden for her to bear, but I'd like to think it's doable."^  ^;...
