Janet heading to London soon

In a message posted on her official website,, Janet has confirmed that she will be visiting London for an event soon – as yet unconfirmed as to what it’ll be. She also confirmed that she will be performing a special one-off concert at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas on May 11th.

How r u?

Its been more than too long since we’ve spoken? How is your life going? All is well with me. There’s so much to update u on. Where do I start?

Well, I just finished filming the new Tyler Perry movie, “Why Did I Get Married?” It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film.

Its an ensemble cast that includes Richard T. Jones, Jill Scott, Malik Yoba, Tasha Smith, Michael Jai White, Sharon Leal and Tyler Perry – who wrote, produced and directed the movie. I play an educated author & psychologist who writes about love, marriage and relationships and counsels as well. Its a great departure 4 me from my other roles and I can’t wait for u to see the movie when it opens later this year.

Have you seen my Vibe Vixen cover? I LOVE it! The story was great and I love the photos the fabulous Ruven Afanador shot. I’m also on the cover of famed photographer Michel Haddi’s new magazine, Sly & Chic. We shot it in the Hollywood Hills a few months ago – real classic Hollywood style – a totally different look. The magazine should be on stands in the states in a couple of weeks – I hope u like it.

On the music side, I’ve been in crazy rehearsals preparing for my performance at the Atlantis – Phase III opening on May 11th. I’m performing a mini concert and planning to enjoy the Bahamas with the kids. Then I’m off to Europe to do an event in Cannes and London.

I hope you are preparing to have a great summer and I promise to keep in better touch.

Miss u!

Janet completes Tyler Perry film

In a message posted to his website today, Tyler Perry has confirmed that shooting on his latest project featuring Janet is now complete. In it, he also states that the film “Why Did I Get Married?” is now scheduled for release in October 2007. Previous announcements put a release date somewhere around February 2008.

Hey there,

I have been so crazy busy that I haven’t had a chance to write in a while. I just finished shooting the new movie, WHY DID I GET MARRIED? Just wait . . . you just wait.

Can I tell you that I love Jill Scott? That is the kind of woman that can smile and end a war. Really she is unbelievable. And Janet Jackson has to be the most professional superstar that I have ever worked with. She was the first one there and the last one to leave–always on time and no drama. These women put it down! I’ll talk more about the rest of the cast later, but this was the best time that I have had making a movie yet. We’re looking to release it in October of this year.
