Janet Cleared Of Slapping Paris, Lol

TMZ's headline "Janet Jackson Did Not Slap or Verbally Abuse Paris Jackson" is arguably the best article title ever.

While I didn't think a confrontation between an aunt and niece was anything out of the ordinary, I didn't want to believe last week's reports that things between Janet and Paris got that out of control.

But the correction is a good thing.

These days, no one apologizes for false reports based on information from sometimes questionable unnamed sources. So it's even surprising to see a leading gossip site publish a retraction with a photo that spans the column's width.

Retractions are generally a couple sentences at the bottom of the page. Looks like Janet has a good attorney. Good for her.
