Janet Jackson Cancels All Of Her European Tour Dates

In hindsight, “Unbreakable” seems like a poor choice of names, doesn’t it?

After postponing most of the North American leg of her Unbreakable World Tour, now Janet Jackson‘s straight up cancelling four upcoming shows in the UK.

The 49-year-old has constantly been denying rumors that cancer was the reason for the original date changes, saying that the shows were changed due to “scheduling conflicts.” But now these cancellations are pretty much just adding fuel to the fire.

Ticketmaster confirmed the cancellations in Birmingham, London, Glasow, and Manchester in an email to fans Tuesday morning, saying:

“It is not possible to confirm new dates at the present time so we are refunding all ticket holders.”

Good to get one’s money back, but bad that this message pretty much admits she’s not paying her European fans a visit anytime soon. In general, it’s hard to know what will happen- if this is just a precursor to her cancelling the rest of the tour, or if she’ll get back on track…

Why do YOU think Janet’s cancelling these dates?

Janet Jackson treats her dancers to bottle service

Janet Jackson treats her dancers to bottle service

A couple of weeks ago, Janet Jackson received some negative PR when her team was issuing copyright violations over clips of her concerts that fans had uploaded to Instagram. It was a whole mess where some fans got their accounts terminated. Maybe now she’s doing some damage control in the eyes of fans and the media?

Page Six reports:

Janet Jackson showed she’s not so nasty by treating her backup dancers to a night on the town after her show at the Chicago Theatre on Wednesday.

Spies said she took a group of 20, including pals and dancers, to bottle service boîte Studio Paris, where they stayed until 1:30 a.m.

Earlier, Jackson was with her husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, at Rockit Bar & Grill while her dancers partied at another club, the Underground.

It’s a nice gesture, that’s for sure. Maybe I’m just being cynical by assuming that she treated them to bottle service in order to reverse the negative PR that was spun her way. Perhaps she did it just because she knows how hard they work and wanted to do something nice for them as a sign of her appreciation.

What do you think?

Janet Jackson apologizes to her fans over copyright issues

Janet Jackson apologizes to her fans over copyright issues

Just yesterday, we told you of how Janet Jackson’s legal team was apparently shaking down her fans over copyright issues because of the pictures they shared of her recent tour. Now, the singer is issuing an apology to her fans over the mishap.

After sharing pictures and video of her concerts, fans reported to have received a note from Instagram telling them “a third party reported that the content violates their copyright.”

What was worse was that some fans woke up to a full Instagram account deletion. Janet has clarified her standing on the video clips and hopes fans understand her need to only have shorter recordings on social media.

She shared:

Hey you guys, I have been listening…

I love and appreciate my fans. I want you to know that I enjoy watching the short video clips of how you are Burning It Up at the Unbreakable shows. Please keep posting them.

My team is passionate about protecting the intellectual property we are creating for the tour and possible future projects. It was never their intention, acting on my behalf, to have social media accounts removed. Permitting the use of long clips does present a contractual problem for these projects. I hope you understand. I trust the fans will use their short recordings for their own memories and to share on their social media networks of choice.

I have asked my team to change their approach and allow you to engage socially with these videos.

I know I wouldn’t be here without the love I stand on.

Do you think she is taking things too far?

Janet Jackson’s fans have copyright troubles on Instagram

Janet Jackson's fans have copyright troubles on Instagram

Janet Jackson’s fans can’t be happy after posting pictures of her concert on their Instagram feeds only to be sent a legal warning from the social networking service.

Jackson is in the middle of her “Unbreakable” tour and fans have claimed that they’ve gotten emails from Instagram saying “a third party reported that the content violates their copyright.”

One fan said that the day after the concert, her entire account was erased without warning. She said, “Without warning. Every. Single. Photo. Gone.”

Another source said they experienced the same problem and received “five emails from Instagram…about the five videos I had posted. It seems like Miss Jackson’s team is on fire. What a shame they don’t understand the times we live in.”

A rep for Instagram insists that it’s just a bug. Their rep said, “We have identified a bug that resulted in the removal of accounts that shouldn’t have been removed. We have fixed the bug and are in the process of restoring the impacted accounts.”
