TeeRoy's 2 Cents:

  • There are a lot of sensitive topics in Janet's past -- will she take them on or gloss over the rougher stuff?
  • Lifetime is the place to go for salacious stuff.
  • Timberlake got raked over the coals in that recent Britney Spears documentary -- chances are he'll take it on the chin again.

Janet Jackson has plenty of stories to tell, and she'll spin them in a two-part documentary that will hit the tube next year.
