An Icon’s Resurrection! Janet Jackson is back!

It has been a LONG, emphasis on long, time since we heard from the youngest member of The Jackson Family, Janet. Well now this superstar–no icon–is back with some amazing news! As you recall, Janet Jackson has been a borderline recluse since her marriage to Qatari businessman and billionaire, Wissam Al Mana, in 2012. It looks like Janet is done with her “break from the world” and promises new music and get this, a world tour this year!

Ms. Jackson (“…if you nasty…”), announced via a video she tweeted out with the hashtag, #ConversationsInACafe. “I promised you’d hear it from my lips, and now you will,” Jackson said in the video, referencing a tweet she sent  last year to stop rumors that a new album was in the works. “This year: new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.” I would expect nothing less from a Jackson. The announcement is so simple, yet grand at that!

Janet’s last album was 2008’s Discipline which did not fair so well on the music charts. Let’s hope this time around sales, songs, and numbers show us that amazing woman still has what it takes to make the kids–I meant divas–run for their money. They are, after all, ALL influenced by her!  Check out Janet’s personal announcement below.

 

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
