Janet Jackson Earns Billionaire Title
Janet Jackson can make a remix to Lil Wayne’s “A Milli” and title her track “A Billi” since that’s just what she is now: a billionaire.
The revered pop star earns the title as a result of her 10 albums, handful of tours and various roles in films.
Variety reports that Jackson brought in a cool $260 million in album sales – 1986’s “Control,” 1993’s “janet.” And 1989’s “Rhythm Nation 1814.”
For her roles in movies such as “Poetic Justice,” “For Colored Girls,” “The Nutty Professor” and “The Klumps,” she’s put $304 million into her bank account.
She also scored $81 million for music and publishing fees. World tours, which were sold-out, gave her another $458 million. Add an additional $81.5 million to that for licensing fees and tour sponsorships.
The 47-year-old entertainer is among the likes of Madonna and Oprah Winfrey who are also billionaires. Jackson’s husband, Wissam Al Mana is also part of the club.
