Recent pics of Jimmy Jam

I just saw some pics of Jimmy from Janets concert in mpls last night. He does not look well at all. It's sorta the same as watching prince waste away those last few months is what I took from the photos. Anyone have any insight

Jimmy was huge, he lost a lot of weight over the last 2yrs I don't think anything is wrong.

Your pic is not that recent. Try this link. Not sure how to post the pic. I'm sure you will be of my mindset when you see it

I think he looks fine. As noted, he was very big (yes, overweight) before.

I've always found him to be gracious and articulate.

Yes, he has lost a significant amount of weight; hopefully it has been intentional.

Drastic weight loss like this at his age, will not look as good right away. The skin doesn't bounce back right away and it takes some time for the body and skin to rejuvenate

Jimmy lost most of the weight in a 6 month period in 2018.

If it was an illness we probably would have heard by now.

He played with Janet in MN a few nights ago.

My guy lost a significant amount of weight (on doctor's orders) after he was diagnosed with diabetes. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if that was the case with JJ. And if it is, his health is probably better than before.

Jimmy Jam isn't Prince who was so private he made acquaintances sign non-disclosure agreements and didn't allow any recording devices during interviews with reporters. If something was seriously wrong, I'd think he'd be frank about it.

He probably did it for health reasons like so many others. Its been a while and he's not looking frail. It was just sudden. He looks fine once you adjust to the difference. But im sure we'll keep an ear out.

That's what I'm saying. The OP's hyperbole about him being sickly and wasting away is disrespectful and ignorant, at best. Someone takes care of themselves and loses weight, and suddenly they're "wasting away"??? It's the same hypocritical statements like "She's too thin, someone give her a burger," or "she's so fat, why doesn't she take a walk instead of sitting there"? It's a no-win/no-win with people like that.



As far as Prince, he was sick and an addict, unfortunately like every other rock star who dies on drugs. He was in the darkest part of drug addiction to opioids. Yeah, people won't wanna hear that. They love to romanticize that he planned his death, left secret messages, and suddenly just offed himself in an elevator (cuz that'll be cool since he talked about it in a song one time 35 years ago). But that's why he looked horrible, he was on drugs. They change your whole chemistry inside and out. I don't know who he thought he was hiding it from - maybe himself.

I'm glad Jimmy is on track for staying alive for his wife and kids. He's had a rich and varied life full of amazing experiences. He's historical. I hope he's around another 40 years. He and Terry are 62 years old (and 9 months and 25 days old, according to Alexa). It's never too late to sort yourself out like that. Kudos to Jimmy - and Randy Jackson who has also lost a lot of weight and, along with his line of eyewear for the past 15 years, is soon launching a range of health supplements and guides to living healthier. He has fought diabetes, as well.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Exactly. This is not the first time on the org someone insinuating he has health issues. He is fine. He was heavy before and has lost weight which is a good thing.

I saw Jimmy a few months ago and he looked great. It's NOTHING wrong with him.

So what's the big deal. OP gave an opinion so we have to argue about it? Jumpy. At the end of the day NO ONE knows..could be healthy or not.

Jimmy may have had gastric bypass surgery, which has become quite common. The weight loss happens very quickly too. I think he looks great.

He's lost alot of weight. I lost 210 lbs and have maintained for almost 2 years. I've gotten the 'he looks sick' comments when I'm perfectly healthy

Look at Al Sharpton. He's lost mad weight for years now... Sometimes you just gotta lose the weight.

Jimmy's lost some weight before, but never this much. He probably did have a bypass of some sort, which is a perfectly viable option these days. My friend, who was pushing 300lbs as a 5'2 woman, got the sleeve almost a year ago, and it's changed her life at 50 years old. Another friend from high school had the whole gastic bypass years ago when her first born was becoming more mobile and she wasn't getting around with him as easily. People often see the bypass surgeries as an easy way out, but they're not. They can literally save someone's life.

Because it's never about fitting into pants, or getting one seat on a plane, or whatever - it's about extending one's life. I'm glad Jimmy took the steps he did and got himself in order. He's only a year younger (6.6.59) than Prince, so he has years ahead of him to live healthy and be clear and present in his wife's and children's lives. He could have just adopted a plant based diet, or a diet similar to Al's, which cut out meats and starches. Al lost about 176lbs. Jimmy was pretty big a few short years ago (during those talks w/ universities etc about Prince after he died). So whatever he's doing, it's working.

I agree. Doesn’t matter how the weight is lost - surgery or diet both work.

I recently watched him and Terry at the RARHOF. They were there for Janet. It was the first time I had seen Jimmy and I thought, wow look at him!! I thought he looked good.
