ABSTRACT
On the kickoff track of the new "Damita Jo," Janet Jackson's eighth album, she whispers," We're vulnerable"--and who would know better what it's like to stand exposed? Her Super Bowl debacle/accident/publicity stunt aside, she's the ninth and youngest child of pop culture's most scrutinized celebrity family. Jackson clearly wants to be seen for who she is--after all, the album title is her middle name--but beyond one song, she never comes close to revealing the person behind the superbleached smile. As a singer, Jackson's never been a match for her brother Michael: her voice is pleasant and passable, period.
