Janet Jackson Doll Cost 1,000 Dollars and the Question is Why?

The Collector's edition of Janet Jackson doll is here. This doll comes with at Certificate of authenticity. The doll creation is of her 2010 American Idol Performance. How much would you pay for this doll? is it worth the bidding price? Which ultimately was fine, because although the Divinely Janet doll is an absolutely gorgeous replica of Janet when she performed on American Idol earlier this year, it's not exactly one that we would have chosen being the group of Janet fans that we are. A style and fashion trendsetter, Janet has so many iconic looks throughout her career that could translate well into a miniature plastic version of the diva. With that said, Janet Jackson Barbie dolls is definitely a keeper, but for the average American the price needs an adjustment.


“Inspired by the ultra-glam black gown she wore during her 2010 American Idol performance, I knew we had to recreate that look for her one of a kind doll,” says Mattel Designer Jackeline Gonzalez, who crafted the Janet Barbie. “Look closely dolls, Janet’s sassy, short hairstyle, unique face and body sculpt and face painting all meticulously duplicate the legendary singer’s features.”

Gonzalez “duplicated the black gown, including the body-hugging cat-suit underneath that she revealed during her second, upbeat performance. Her gown is kissed with bling created by countless hand-placed Swarovski crystals. Even her mic is crystal-studded.”

Rick Ross Shooting: Rapper's Rolls Royce Crashes Into Fort Lauderdale Building During Drive-By Attempt (VIDEO)

Rapper Rick Ross was the apparent target of a drive-by shooting in Fort Lauderdale early Monday morning.

Fort Lauderdale Police confirmed to The Huffington Post that Ross, born William Roberts, was in a 2011 Rolls Royce driving eastbound on busy Las Olas Boulevard when a gunman in another vehicle opened fire around 5 a.m.

Moments later, Ross' vehicle struck the wall of an apartment complex after the driver turned a corner to escape the bullets and lost control.

WSVN reports "dozens" of shell casings were found at the scene, but neither Ross nor his passenger, rumored girlfriend fashion designer Shateria Moragne-el, was injured.

"Two or three little palm trees" were run over in the crash, according to the Miami Herald.

Witnesses said Ross had been celebrating his 37th birthday at the nearby Floridian restaurant after a night spent at club LIV in Miami Beach.

The restaurant was also struck in the hail of gunfire, reports the Herald. Onlookers there said they heard about 15 shots, which sounded like they came from a high-powered rifle.

Ross, a Miami native, lives in nearby Davie. Detectives are urging anyone with information regarding this shooting to contact FLPD's Violent Crimes at 954-828-5546.
