Janet Jackson Joins Twitter, Announces Upcoming Project
Janet Jackson is making a comeback! The pop star recently announced via her Twitter page, that she has linked with long-time producers/friends Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for her forthcoming album. “Hangin’ out with my babies Rocky n Bullwinkle while writing songs for the new project,” she wrote. The duo is responsible for several of Jackson’s hits, including her 1986 breakout album ‘Control.’
Jackson recently wrapped up shooting the sequel to Tyler Perry’s ‘Why Did I Get Married,’ and is now focusing on making the album. The 43-year-old has kept a low profile since the death of her brother Michael in June. Just two days after his sudden death, she appeared at the BET awards on behalf of her family.
“My entire family wanted to be here tonight but it was just too painful so they elected me to speak with all of you,” she said. “I’m going to keep it very short. I just like to say: to you Michael is an icon. To us Michael is family, and he will forever live in all of our hearts.” Additionally, Jackson has a picture on her brother on her site under the words ‘We Miss Him So Much.’
Following the lackluster sales of her last album ‘Discipline,’ Jackson cut ties with her former label Def Jam Records. She has since signed a record deal with concert giant Live Nation.
