Damita Jo - a celebration

Today, in 2004, just a mere few weeks after "the incident," Janet Jackson released her 8th studio album, Damito Jo, which is her middle name. The album spawned hits, and great videos.

But what I didn't know was this:

A promo poster was released, which was a zoomed in spot of the album. You can see her nipple! This is why Janet is, and always will be, the queen. She wasn't going to let white supremacy, Les Moonves, George Bush, or any other naysayer who set out to crucify her (to distract from the war in Iraq which wasn't being received that well in the public by that point) tell her what to do or control her body. (Some copies have the nipple erased.)

I wrote on Medium about Janet's fight against white supremacy, Moonves, Timberlake, and the public after that incident.
