Janet Jackson’s 50th Birthday Was Chill AF

Janet Jackson Performs In Vancouver

You know, like those pants.

Janet Jackson had her 50th birthday on Monday and celebrated with a low-key affair that included only close friends and her husband, a source tells E! News. Janet is expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana after working with a fertility specialist, so it must’ve been an exciting (and sober) birthday. But at 50? That doesn’t seem half bad.  The insider continued to report that the “Dammn Baby” songstress is feeling great thanks to the people she has around her:

“Her support system is extremely strong. Janet received many calls from her loved ones that couldn’t be there with her on her birthday,” the insider shares. “She is taking things easy these days and is feeling well but not over doing it in any capacity of her life. Janet is staying healthy for her and her baby.”

News of Janet’s pregnancy broke earlier this month, when another source said she was in the second trimester. The talented singer always made it clear that she wanted to have a family of her own, and kept canceling concerts, so everybody knew something was up.

What an exciting experience and benchmark for the singer! Hopefully 50 will be even better for her, now as a singer, dancer and MOM!

Janet Jackson Is PREGGERS!!!

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 1.07.56 PM


According to Entertainment Tonight, Janet Jackson is officially….PREGNANT. Yes, this is not a drill: the 50-year-old is prego with her first child. So NOW we know for sure why Ms. Jackson was delaying her world tour to focus on family.

Sounds like some happy news on the heels of Mother’s Day, which is coming up this weekend. Maybe J.J. will officially announce the great news on Sunday, with some fun, cute gif? Or I dunno, a sonogram?

Obvi this news is not only exciting because of her age, but also because this will be the first child for Jackson and her husband of four years, Wissam Al Mana. I bet it took a lot of work and time jugging and resources to make little Janet Jr.’s life a reality, so I hope they are celebrating HARDCORE (but not TOO hardcore, if you know what I mean. The woman’s pregnant).

Janet Jackson Cancels All Of Her European Tour Dates

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 11.43.31 AM

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?
