Janet Jackson loses a SUPERFAN over fur line (why Janet, why?) »
It’s a sad, sad day in the world of animal lovin’ (not wearin’) Janet Jackson fans. Ms “I can get down with some faux chicken nuggets” Nasty, in collaboration with Blackglama, is launching a mink fur line, set to hit high-end retailers just in time for New Year’s. What what? EX-superfan, Sean Olsterdorf of Michigan, is not pleased and is therefore auctioning off ALL of his 25 years-in-the-making Janet memorabilia collection of vinyls, posters, pictures, and magazines, and donating the proceeds to PETA.

Sean says, “I am a long-time Janet Jackson fan—or I should say I used to be. I am disgusted and have decided I want to auction off my entire 25 years-plus of Janet items and donate the proceeds to PETA. I have three rescued chinchillas and find Janet’s decision reprehensible.”
Props, Sean! I know it must be hurting you (even if it’s just a little) to part with that massive collection. Also, where did you keep all this stuff? Was it showcased around your apartment? Did it keep you from getting dates? My sister has been collecting 311 memorabilia for the last 12 years, but lucky for her, she married another superfan, so they can, like, decorate their house with that shit together.
(Let’s not talk about my No Doubt memorabilia and the fact that I am so very single.)

The Toronto Vegetarian Association is putting on this event called Veggielicious, and it’s an all-vegan restaurant event that runs from Apr. 9 through 24. Vegan and non-vegan restaurants around the Toronto area will offer special vegan combo meals or fixed-price specials. It’s the first year they’re holding the event, and they have about 20 restaurants lined up to participate. So two things:
1) If you’re in Toronto, you must so totally go, AND;
2) Yo! We need a vegan restaurant week, like all over. Maybe some vegan blogs could get together and make this happen? We could start in bigger cities and then if that goes well, we could move to small ones, too? I don’t know. What say you, vegan bloggers of the world? Or just people of the world? Just imagine me as Janet Jackson in the "Rhythm Nation" video, rallying everyone to eat vegan food. I think that’s what the song is about anyway.
Anyway, if you’re interested, email me! Sing it, people!
Dude, Janet Jackson is (almost? or is?) vegan!? And she loves eating at vegan restaurants! I had no idea! Ms. Jackson’s (‘cause I’m nasty!) music has gotten me through many rough times, namely middle school through present day. Anyway, she was on Jay “I am your grandfather but worse because we’re not related and I have a fucking tv show” Leno last night talking about all her favorite vegan restaurants, she loves Vegan Glory (she loves the tacos and chicken nuggets!) in Los Angeles and Red Bamboo (she loves the chicken parmesan!) in New York City. She is so very adorable and Jay Leno is THE WORST OMG GRANDPA GET OFF THE AIR.
Now, please excuse me while I go listen to "If" a million times. OMG, let’s totally talk about favorite Janet songs now. What’s yours!? There was a point in middle school when I dressed all in black and ran around my house acting out the entire Rhythm Nation album. There was definitely some moves during “Black Cat” that were not PG-13 and I think I might have dry-humped a couch at one point? My parents must have been entirely checked out for the majority of my childhood because how was I not institutionalized!?
