About Janet Jackson
Is Janet Jackson playing Vegas?
Here's a bit of a sobering thought for Janet Jackson fans: It's been seven years since last studio album, 2008's "Discipline." And if you were hoping that new music might be on the horizon … think again.
Jackson took to Twitter back in August 2014 to shoot down rumors of any new projects. She wrote, "If there is a new project, you'll hear it from my lips." Instead, the 48-year-old has devoted much of her time to charitable causes. She was photographed in December visiting children at Zaatari refugee camp, and has otherwise settled into a very quiet married life with husband Wissam Al Mana.
Jackson has also failed to comment on new rumors (courtesy of the Las Vegas Sun) that she has signed on to a mini-residency in Las Vegas. According to the publication, Jackson will perform at the Venetian in early spring as part of a line-up that includes the legendary Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie. There's been no evidence the reports are true (or false), and obviously some fans are hoping this could be the spark that gets her back in the studio again.
According to more 'new reports,' there's also talk of Jackson entering the Celebrity Big Brother 2015 house. And again, while there has been no response from her official camp, she would be one of the most famous faces in the house ever. She also wouldn't be the first Jackson either, as both LaToya and Jermaine were previously featured on the show in 2009 and 2007.
Janet Jackson still a world-class performer (updated November 20, 2012)
If ever a performer could step out of the shadow of a successful younger sibling and carve his or her own path, they've probably used Janet Jackson as an example of how it can be done. The youngest of nine children in the Jackson family, she didn't have the safety net of performing in the Jackson 5, and later battled to protect both her sound and image as her musical career progressed.
With her career taking off in 1986 after a series of early struggles, Jackson turned to more socially conscious material for 1989's "Rhythm Nation 1814." Four of the album's singles – "Miss You Much," "Escapade," "Black Cat" and "Love Will Never Do (Without You)" – hit number one, and three more would reach the Top Five. The success allowed Jackson to embark on her first tour, and for a reported $32 million she jumped from A&M to Virgin Records, where another complete overhaul of her image followed.
To go along with a sexy, seductive new persona, Jackson posed for the cover of Rolling Stone, her topless body covered by a pair of hands belonging to an unseen individual. Next came the release of the album, "Janet," which saw its first single – "That's the Way Love Goes" – spend eight weeks at No. 1 and become the biggest hit of her career. It was followed by "If," "Again," "Because of You," "Any Time, Any Place" and "You Want This."
Fast forward to 2012, and Janet Jackson is still making music. And though her last album release was "Discipline" in 2008, she has remained a key figure in the entertainment world. Super Bowl 'wardrobe malfunctions,' lip-synced vocals and the death of her brother, Michael, only served to fan the flames – but the legacy of Janet Jackson is still that of a world-class performer.
