Janet Jackson on Lady Gaga (VIDEO)

Lady Gaga has many fans and many haters, but it looks like you can count Janet Jackson among the fans!

In a recent interview, Janet Jackson and her friend and collaborator Tyler Perry both praised Lady Gaga as a sweetheart" and gave respect to the pop music force of nature, who was most recently seen breaking youtube records with her "Telephone" video that co-starred Beyonce (along with a gaggle of naughty inmates).

Lady Gaga is a new name on the scene, a New Yorker who played in local Manhattan clubs before reinventing herself with an endless array of spectacular & bizarre outfits, outspoken views and cleverly naughty lyrical themes. She's caused lots of controversy and made many wonder how long she can stay on top with all her gimmickry, but her albums and concert tickets keep flying off the shelves, and just like Janet Jackson in her day, Lady Gaga doesn't seem to be going anywhere soon.

In a press appearance with Tyler Perry, promoting their new movie "Why Did I Get Married Too," Perry and Jackson both praised Gaga, saying "I really love Gaga, yeah, and she's a sweetheart...it's not always the case when you meet them. You can enjoy their work, but it's not always such a -- so pleasant when you get to know their personality, and she truly is a sweetheart."

Everyone knows who Justin Bieber is, right? Not quite. But when director Tyler Perry admitted his ignorance, Janet Jackson was on hand to fill him in on Bieber fever. And while promoting their new film, "Why Did I Get Married Too?," Jackson had some thoughts to share about the newest pop superstars on the scene. "Who's Justin Bieber?" Perry asked. Jackson, slightly surprised by Perry's answer, explained that Bieber is from Atlanta and is "one of Usher's kids." ...Perry then mentioned Jackson's love for Lady Gaga....
