Jackson shows new curves in Cannes

Janet Jackson has insisted she isn't competing with any other slimmed-down singers who are also promoting diet plans.

The Call On Me singer joined the ranks of diet plan celebrity spokeswomen like Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson, when she became a spokesperson for NutriSystem in December. Mariah became the spokesperson for Jenny Craig after dropping 30 pounds with their plan and a toned Jennifer is seen singing the praises of Weightwatchers in the company's commercials.

But Janet, looking shapely in a white dress at the amfAR Cinema Against Aids gala in Cannes, said it isn't about competing with each other.

She said: "You know I think it's great that all the girls, or as many as possible, can stand up and try to help as many people as possible. That's really what it's about. It's not about competing with each other, not for me."

The star credits the diet company for helping her lose weight, though she's keeping quiet about the exact number she's lost.

"I took off all that extra stuff I really didn't need and I feel really good," she said.

Janet, 46, also revealed that she is busy working on new music, which she says is still in the "beginning stages".

"Everything I've done, it's always been different here or there, from one album to the next, a mixture of stuff. So we'll see," she said.
