Kat Graham aka Bonnie from the CW’s “Vampire Diaries” pays tribute to her idol Janet Jackson with her most recent music video “Love Will Never Do Without An Escapade,” a mash-up of Janet’s hits “Love Will Never Do (WithoutYou)” and “Escapade.”

In an interview with PopWrap, Kat revealed, “It’s a tribute to Janet, from me.” Adding, “It’s not like I’m trying to take anyone out, I just wanted to say, ‘oh my god, I love you so much, let me pay my respects now.’ I know I’m going to get comparisons [to Janet] because of my whole acting, dancing, singing thing — so this is me taking the bull by the horns and thanking her first and foremost.”

And with Laurieann Gibson’s choreographed moves in the video, Kat sure does show she’s got the Janet Jackson dance moves as well. The video was directed by Billie Woodruff, who also helmed Britney Spears’ “Do Somethin'” and Nelly’s “Hot In Herre” videos. Watch it below!
