Happy Birthday Janet Jackson!




Happy 45th Birthday Janet Jackson!

JANET JACKSON FANS TO SUPPORT AMFAR IN HONOR OF STAR’S BIRTHDAY :

In honor of Janet Jackson’s birthday, fans online are joining her in supporting amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.

In 1989, Janet Jackson released “Rhythm Nation 1814,” an album thematically dedicated to bringing people of all cultures of the world together, with a focus on improving education and ending prejudice. Believing there is power in numbers, she rallied her listeners on the eponymous single, “It’s time to give a damn, let’s work together.”

As Janet travels the world this spring in support of her Number Ones: Greatest Hits Tour, her fans are returning to that Rhythm Nation pledge.

In honor of Janet’s birthday on May 16, fans will work together by giving $18.14 to amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. One of Janet’s online fan communities, janetxone, is spearheading this effort by organizing an online drive for donations. By contributing a symbolic $18.14 -- or any amount they are able to give -- Janet's fans are speaking loud and clear: “Thank you, amfAR, for your unyielding efforts in finding a cure.”

By honoring both Janet’s dedication to helping the organization in its fight against AIDS and the leadership role that amfAR has taken for 25 Years in tackling the global epidemic, Janet’s fans hope to encourage others to do give in any way they can.

Fame News!




Welcome to another busy month on Kids From Fame Media, with lots of interviews, music and great posts to come.


This month is Fame Movie month, with a number of posts celebrating the original 1980 movie culminating in the launch of my Movie site at the end of the month.





Also this month sees the return of my fan fiction story "Doris Schwartz Time and Again". Season 2 starts with it's first story on May 17th.



Talking of my fan fiction, the results of our poll are in. With 100 votes 87% of you wanted Doris to try and prevent Nicole from dying. So I'm busy writing that in to the series. Be warned there will be consequences!



The Episode of the Month is the Mrs Berg story "Alice Doesn't Work Here Anymore" from season 6 and post for that start on Thursday 5th.

Have A Great Month!
