Island Def Jam have released a statement regarding the promotion of Discipline to Billboard magazine in response to Janet’s recent comments on the SOHH blog.
“Unfortunately we haven’t experienced the results we would have liked with this new album. But we respect and support Janet.”
The Billboard article does, however, confuse Janet’s comments about being unable to visit Europe on her promotional tour as her saying that she will not be bringing the Rock Witchu Tour to the continent. Island Def Jam responded saying that the label “has nothing to do with Janet’s tour”. Indeed Island Def Jam is in no way linked to the upcoming tour and Janet’s comments about not coming to Europe were not related to the Live Nation Rock Witchu Tour.
